Okay so since yesterday about mid afternoon (after i reconnected to the internet after it randomly dissconnected as it sometimes does), my internet has been running extremely slow. Some sites such as TFW, google and the Melbourne victory forum have been running fine but it is sites such as Facebook, ebay, youtube etc that have been going at snails pace. Im sure I haven't used up my monthly usage so does anyone have any ideas/suggestions!?

Get better internet Razz

I actually had a problem similar to this, where it took forever to connect, when it did it was fast and slow. Turned out there was something wrong with the phone line that was affecting the net. Might wanna try your ISP to see if other people are complaining of the same thing, could be a problem with them not you.

I've had the same problem, but I've traced it to my wireless router, which somehow shat itself when we lost Internet last night.

So, not sure if you use anything like that, but yeah, might be worth looking at it.

But I don't know the details of what went wrong (my brothers the tech-savvy one, not me Laughing) so can't help you any further sorry Sad

I just wish my interest in general was quicker. We've only got 256K and it's OK for searching websites, but for music and videos it's way too slow. Wish we had ADSL or something much, much quicker.
