|I've been having a problem with my internet now for the past months and I'm desperate at this stage to fix it. Basically whatever is causing it to happen is making my browsers take up to 30 seconds to load a website, to connect to a game, to reload connection info in a game, to connect to any online software really, and is also preventing me from connecting to the likes of Limewire too.|
When I first log on internet works grand, but give it maybe 2 minutes and it just takes ages to connect to a server for a website, game etc to start loading. Once it eventually loads its grand then for another couple of minutes and then same problem occures. I'm with NTL and have a 10MB connection, and at first I thought it was their end causing it but I connected the modem up to the laptop and it worked grand on that so its definitely the computer causing it.
I've tried everything I can think of at this stage; disk cleanup, defrag, general cleanup of hard drive, spyware scan, virus scan, cooling down the room in case it was computer overheating causing it, and nothing works.
I found something on www.tweakxp.com that is the exact problem I'm having - http://www.tweakxp.com/article37127... but their solution doesn't apply to me as I don't have Microsoft TCP/IP version 6 installed, so I'm back to square 1.
I would really appreciate if someone could offer any help on this as I'm desperate to try fix it at this stage.
Just to clarify its not the actual speed thats affected, once something loads it loads instantly as it should, it just takes ages to connect and start loading.
