Sometimes, after a little while on the net, the connection seems to slow down further and further until nothing comes through at all. Last night I down loaded a game for the kids, and it stopped with only 9 seconds to go and no more came through, Sometimes I disconnect and reconnect and that works, or not. We never used to have this problem but it seems to be getting worse. I am on a 56k phioneline modem, and lately speed [indicated] is about 46k, down from a previous 50k.

any help will be appreciated

Night shift, if you cant post anything helpful then how about shutting it?

First thing I would ask is if you have any anti spyware apps on your pc and if so have you updated and done scans with them recently. Same goes for anti virus.

Secondly I would recomend you to delete your tempfiles, clear history delete cookies.

I would also recomend you lower your port speed in modem settings down to 57600 and lower your Fifo buffers down one notch. Both of these can be found in Modem settings.
