Hi this thread is about my concern about my internet connection and something outpost firewall may have done to it.

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

Have you tried rolling back to before you installed Outpost?
