I'm with Orange Broadband plus & over the last few weeks its been very slow when doing certain things!!
Streaming vids i.e youtube is ok, but signing in & out of hotmail is soo slow & as is most other websites i browse!
I'm wondering if its my ISP or my browser as when i click on a Google find, i sometimes have to click it twice to get the page loading & the 'egg timer' next to the arrow disappears fast & the page loading bar just sticks & the 2 'tv's' in taskbar are off & on & often non active!
I've tried clearing clutter with ccleaner to no avail & am wondering as you can see if its my browser (latest firefox) or ISP.
Hi Ok, i went on click here & posted about my issue & was contacted by the Responce team via the website! I was told i'd be contacted by phone which i was & was told to connect to the internet using the usual cables but minus the 'extension' cable i have to the BT socket downstairs! So i'd have to borrow a laptop!
I'm having difficulties borrowing a laptop, but my issue is, is that if i turn router off, leave a while, then on, it can either stay the same or speed up dramatically as Scotty says! To me, this shows that it is an issue with the route & not the cable! Does anyone agree with me??, Orange refuse to think this & its my issue as they are giving me ample speed!! They are sending me a new router though!! Can anyone get on the above site at all! All i get is:- Forbidden

Woolwell, i have used an extension cable for over 2 years because the pc is upstairs & bt socket is downstairs! All has been ok in those 2 years, this problem has only just happened in the last 6 weeks or so!
Orange say that borrow a laptop & take it downstairs & connect my router direct into the wall, removing the extension! This way, according to Orange, would rule out any problems with the extension if my speed was good on a regular basis! I have no way of using my router wireless as my pc doesn't have wireless card! I'm using a yellow ethernet cable!
Last night, my speed was great! Pages loading fast, could have 5 tabs on browser open at once & all ok! This morning, it actually took me 10 minutes to sign into hotmail & go into my inbox & the same to logout successfully! any more than 2 tabs open & i get 'problem loading page, connection to server was reset while page loading'also sometimes having to click the lonk more than once & then mostly i get a white page for ages!!
