|Big downloads (ie: p2p) will kill your bandwidth. So if you're doing that the next time it happens, try shutting off the p2p and see if that doesn't improve things.|
Keep in mind that wireless is what it is, and compared to a wired connection, it sucks....this is regardless of signal strength. So next time this happens, try it with a wired connection and see if that doesn't make a difference.
Things you can try to improve your wireless:
- ensure router has most recent firmware
- ensure wireless network interface on computer/laptop has most recent drivers.
- stop using wireless (again, it sucks) and go with a wired connection.
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.
