A couple of days ago my cable internet has been so slow. Its been going
slower than a 56k. I called the cable company and the technician said
all the wires are fine and he doesnt know whats wrong. He said maybe
that since I download alot I have a slower broadband connection.
Can someone please help me. I cant stand waiting 5minutes for a webpage
I also tried installing my ethernet drivers again. Nothing changed.
Btw, I do not have any spyware or viruses so that cannot be the cause.
Re: Cable internet slower than 56k
How about some particulars:
Which cable company do you have and in what area ?
What modem are you using ?
Do you have a router and what kind ?
What does your modem status page say about your connection power levels etc. ?
What method did you use to test your speed ? Did you run a speed test ?
