I bought a Dell Inspiron desktop computer about 6 months ago. I use it for browsing and chatting off and on all day. The most strain I put on it (when not streaming videos) are my webcam conversations using MSN.
I have never had a problem with this before - even on my old computer - but it seems that the internet is slowed recently. My webcam may be the point of blame for this development.
The house is on a network, and everyone is directly connected except for me (Dynex Wireless G).
Do webcams slow internet connections?
The chief complaint is that the Xbox360 another member of the household uses lags recently.
Thanks for your help!
Once again, I apologize if this isn't in the right area. I thought it might be a question concerning hardware.
