      Awful, awful speeds

      Hello again all,

      Before I go any further, this thread is NOT about my connection speeds - this is about the actual speeds that I'm getting when browsing the web. We've had SKY BB for about 2 weeks now and have had nothing but disconnections, the router freezing, and ****-poor speeds.

      Web pages load at sub-dialup speeds, despite the router being connected at 4.5Mb down and 480Kbs up. I'm not running any P2P stuff, I have no spy/adware on my computer and my firewall is off, but the performance I'm getting is still terrible.

      I've tried resetting the router, disconnecting it all and reconnecting it, changing the firewall settings on the router, nothing works.

      This is really, really getting to me now. I'd expected the performance to be a bit all over the place for maybe the first week, but it's just kept going on.

      Any ideas on how I could improve this situation? Thanks in advance!
