      Windows Reinstall = Slow Sky Broadband

      I have had to reformat and reinstall Windows XP on my PC and have been able to connect to the Net but albeit with a very slow download speed (25k!!). I'm on the Max and my router seems to have the same settings as it did before but why am I getting such slow download speeds? Do I need to get SP2 installed (the prospect of 270Mb at 25kb is terrifying) first?

      Happy to provide advice to get the help as I feel I've been a little vague with the details but in the circumstances, I don't know what else to do. What things should I be looking for in my Local Area Connection settings etc?

      I can connect to the net much faster with my PSP so thinking it could be drivers (Dell Dimension 2400 series with Intel Celeron 2.6Ghz processor).

      Any help appreciated.

      Thanks
      Paul

      Smile Re: Windows Reinstall = Slow Sky Broadband (FIXED)

      Did a reboot of my system and everything seems to be back to normal - even downloading SP2 while I type this.
      Thanks to everyone who helped.
