Hello

Over the past couple days I have had problems with my connection (I think its my connection at least). First off I have a P42.66ghz with 1gb of ram. I run XP and have the fastest cable internet my cable company has 10mb/s. I have the signal split 3 ways through a Linksys wireless-g router, the 2.4ghz one. Two of the connections are through network cables and the 3rd one is wireless to a PS3. Now the problem is over the past couple days pages load slowly. About half the time they timeout and I get the "need to refresh" gray page. This happens in both netscape and firefox. Some times a page will load but no images will show up and sometimes they will load but the format will be all screwy.

I saw another thread a couple down that seems like it could have the same issues as I have but I know one of the rules here is don't do what they say in other threads so I didn't.

I had thought maybe the problem could be the PS3 but its been connected long enough that I cannot see how it could really be the problem.

I ran my virus scanner and spyware removers the other day and they came back clean.

(now im gonna see how many times it gets so I can post this. I'm betting 3 reloads.)

Hi Brian,

Run this on your computers.

Also, occasionally you need to unplug the modem and router to refresh them.
Unplug them for about 2 minutes and plug them back in.

The problem with unplugging the modem and router is that you may have to reset you PS3 connection, and possibly your computers, but I doubt it on the computers.

I have ATF cleaner (got it on suggestion here, I love it). I use it a couple times a day. I've also tried the disconnecting modem and router too.

Sorry that didn't do it for the problem.

Some geek will be along soon to help better then I can.

Usually during the week they are on here more often it seems.
But that's just an observation.

You could try calling your ISP, just say I already did that till they send you to the real techs. Unless they say to try something you haven't, which I doubt.

thanks for the reply. I think it was the ISP as my buddy said he was having the same problems too and he lives across town.

Do a ctrl+alt+del -> task manager -> Networking and see what your Networking traffic/utilization is at.
