Well.. I have a cable modem, (downstairs via Router though).

It has recently dropped to an all time low in download speed..
I've been getting it in the 500 M/s, highest being about 3 KB/s...

Now it hasn't always been like this, so is there anything i can do about it?

If theres any specs you need, you'll have to ask!

Thanks!! :whistling: :help:

Unplug the modem and the router for a couple of minutes, plug them in again to reset them

On a web page, type 192.168.0.1 into the address bar, does it give you the set up page

Ok everything reset - and my download speed is a big jagged from 50, up to 70 KB/s... it generally starts at 70, then drops to 50 after a little bit, usually resting at 53... And this is with a firewall on!

If this has worked and will stay, thank you very much..

But was there anything else?

Use your internet search to look for speed test for your location and run some of those

It is usual for a file download to be quicker at the beginning, the line speed tests will give a better idea of the actual speed
