Slow Ass Internet

Normally, we have super fast internet, but for the last week or so it's been ridiculously slow. We don't have any viruses so I'm totally stumped. It's very irritating.

Re: Slow Ass Internet

Unplug your router and modem for 30 seconds
Then plug the router in 1st, wait 10 secs and then your modem
Then go to Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and try it
Bet you your router is polling...needs a reboob

Re: Slow Ass Internet

Crap. I get 2.5 download.

I upgraded my AT&T as far as I could and it got slower...turns out I had line noise in the house and had to get a dedicated pair run to the DSL modem. Before that it was unusable most of the late afternoon/evening.

You dudes must have insta-porn!

I tend to unplug the power to everything every night (i'm paranoid about fires, just a strange thing i have), so the modem/router is resetting every night. No problems



Somehow we get more than what our contract states (50mb/s Download and 1.5Mb/s Upload)

Once the test has completed, that little box appears with the results. There's two buttons, the one on the left that says "Copy Forum Link". Click that, then paste it into a post on here, then you're good to go

It automatically copies it to your computers memory/clipboard. All you have to do is click that little "Copy Forum Link" button, right click in your post entry window, right click, and click paste
