      Surfing the net

      I've got the sky max package speed of about 11MB, if i'm downloading i'll receive speeds of around 1.0MB -1.1MB but when i'm surfing the web even browsing this forum it take around 15sec to load each page. At the moment i'm download at 800 Kb/s and even if I stop the download and start surfing the net i'm still waiting 15 or so sec for the page to load. If I reset the router then I will be able to view pages at a sensible speed.

      When you say downloading, are you talking about peer to peer or just straight forward http/ftp downloading.

      If it's peer to peer then it is most likely your upload that is saturated, reduce the max upload speed of whatever p2p application you are using.

      What browser are you using? Many have found that the new phishing control on IE7 slows browsing down considerably, as it has to check back to MS every time you load a page. If you are using IE7, try disabling this function and see if it makes a difference.
