      Re: Do i have to use sky router?

      You can use a different router.

      It would help if you would describe the setup in more detail. Are you using the wireless? Is it the wireless that is slow, or is it the broadband that is slow? I am thinking that the problem may be the wireless?? How far away is your PC? What type of aerial does it have? There are many things that could be done to help....

      One thing that does cause pages to load slower is MS's phishing filter. If you have it on, try turning it off and see if there is a difference. Your connection speed is high so you should get a fairly fast response. Have you tried a speed test? Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test is very popular.
