ever since i installed outpost firewall and let it run for about 5 minutes (which is when i noticed speeds of about 16kbs while it was running and installed) i then unistalled it and didnt get any diffrences so in panic i just re installed my modem software etc about 3 times then my speed is back up to about 150kbs roughly
but my line is 2mbps and before i done anything like installed outpost firewall i was getting speeds about 210kbs
while outpost was installed it blocked some things and displayed some kind of MAC address i think what it said it blocked? i dont know if it could have been that or not but maybe you guys can fill me in on that!
iv also tried restoring my pc to an earlier time but had no success and got the same c**ppy speeds
and it isnt my ISP(pipex) either, so what can i do about this guys please?
thanks very much in advance
