hi all,
i'm not sure if this is the place for this question, but it doesn't go anywhere else, so...

i have a problem with my internet reception. i'm now pretty sure that it is at the ISP end and that to 'fix' the problem i simply need to change companies, that is only to obvious.

what i want to know is why this is happening at all...

it began around three weeks ago. i can connect to the ISP no worries. from there i get no joy, i can open firefox but then get no further. i can start a torrent and it just sits there waiting to log in, or it logs in and then sits there and won't connect to any seeds or peers.
when i check the ISP connection there is no problem, all green lights.
however, when the signal shows 98% strength, i get no info in up or download, and other times when the signal shows 0%, i can get up to 2Mbps in download, but that can drop out at any time and show 0.00/ 0.00 again.
if i leave the connection open (for up to 6 days solid!!) the signal works in fits and starts, but spends more time at 0.00 than working. it's really frustrating to see 10-12 seeds connected but not getting any action...
to make matters worse, a friend who lives 2 street over from me uses the same ISP and package and has never had any problems...

any thoughts?

thanks, ksoup

I would like to politely add to what Wolfeymole said -
If you keep downloading torrents, you will most likely be spending some quality time with us in the Malware Removal Forum. Not that we mind you visiting us there, but we would rather not see you with any malware problems.:)
