      Red face Router Really Slow

      Hey, I have been using a Netgear DG834GT Router From Sky and It has been working well, but recently It has been going really slow I used to connect it to my Xbox 360 And PS3 Fine, I havent moved anything and now the connection on both of them might aswell be offline. Also The connection to the computer which has the router right next to it,plugged in has been really slow too. Does anyone have any idea how to fix this?
      Also the Router Firmware is V1.03.87
      DownStream Connection Speed 8191 kbps
      UpStream Connection Speed 796 kbps.

      How about post the full router stats, click show statistics and copy the bottom half.

      Which Package are you on? If its sky connect, your wasting your time.

      Re: Router Really Slow

      Nothing too slow about your connection speed, it is possibly your PC which is causing the problem. Start in Safe Mode with Networking and do a speedtest at Sky User - Broadband Speed Tester Report back with the result, mentioning the OS you are using.

      Unless you have made special arrangements, you are not on Connect.

      Hi Just wondering what security system you are using is it up to date also might be an idea to run Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

      correct me about advicing bartymany to use the Malware if you think I am wrong Tom

      Starting in Safe Mode should determine whether it is actually needed, but everyone should run something like this at least a couple of times a month. Unless you have Mac, where trojans dare not tread.

      Re: Router Really Slow

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 8191 kbps 796 kbps
      Line Attenuation 42.5 db 26.0 db
      Noise Margin 14.7 db 9.5 db

      Sorry for being slow with the reply, I have been doing things.
      I am Using Windows XP, And I already Have Malwarebytes and scan with it reguarly. Also Im pretty sure its not the computer because on my Phone/Xbox 360/PS3 It is Slow Also.

      But after I posted it was suddenly faster again, but now its slow again.

      Also I am not sure what package Im on and Sky Test gives me Error 200, but sometimes its error code 300.

      Also, I am using AVG, and WAS using ZoneAlarm but it slowed down my computer, so now im using Windows Defender.

      Re: Router Really Slow

      That would suggest loss of IP - either due to exchange issue or line/router issue...

      You're also capped, you should be on about 10Mbps going by those stats
