Help after Format
Could somebody plz help?? I've just formatted my pc cos the registry was corrupt and windows wouldn't start. So, I've had to start again from scratch!!
I've re-installed my router, and run tcp optimizer, but my download speed is now only 1951 kbps!! Before formatting, it was 12000-13000 kbps!!!
What do I need to do to sort this?

you could make sure all your associated drivers have been updated for your network cards
run a windows update with options that show available hardware updates
it could of course just be a co-incidence

Try your connections tab, the LAN settings in IE, (assuming that you use that), and ensure that "Automatically detect settings" is UNCHECKED."If you are planning for a year, sow rice;

Have you got a microfilter in the phone connection to the Sky box?
If not that will cause your problem.
Another possibility is that the power supply in your Sky box is beginning to fail and is producing lots of 'noise' which is upsetting your broadband when it is connected to the phone line.
