Internet Speed

Sounds familiar, but I have a problem

All the speed tests which I have done, including checking my modem say that I am getting 2368 kb/s and yet the speed indicator on my browser, Opera 10, says that my loading speed in anywhere from 25kB/s to about 40 kB/s, so somewhere I am losing a lot of speed IN my computer. Any ideas please.

System: Win7 Pro 64-bit. 8 GB ram 3TB HDDs, Asus P7P55D LE mobo

Have you tried If that shows your download speed at just over 2Mbps then that will be your correct download speed. I find the tester fairly accurate.
I don't know about Opera's speed indicator or how accurate it is.

Yes thanks, tried that. Gives me 1.6MB/s on an up to 2.0MB line, so on that score I am happy. But still my pages are extremely slow to load, taking, in some cases, 15-20 seconds and a few even timing out. I am seriously confused.
