|Gaming should not affect bandwidth. But there are a lot of other things that can. Most common is network congestion. The more people on at the same time, the slower it gets for everybody.|
It's entirely possible when you first got hooked up there weren't too many people on your segment of the provider's highspeed network but since then, they've added more customers on that same segment. As I said above, more congestion = slower network.
Also I've noticed everytime I open internet explorer task manager opens a new iexplore.exe instead of using the previous one. Why is this?
Ummm..........that would be because you opened a new one silly. Next time, open a tab in the one that's open instead of opening a new instance of IE.
It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
