Very slow Internet browsing - XP Pro - wireless router - P2P
Posted on 2004-08-22
My configuration :
Athlon XP1700+, 768MB, DSL 768/128, Belkin wireless 54G. Router MTU : 1454
Running on average P2P @ around 40KB/s, 30 files.
I was previously using Windows 2000 and could reasonably browse Internet even though it was a little slow.
I now have upgraded Windows XP and gradually reinstalling the SW I had before.
Since a week my computer has become drastically slow. Internet pages take about 10s to load.
In the past, with the same computer and HW configuration, internet browsing was acceptable also with P2P configured the same way.
I read somewhere the number of simultaneous connections might be limited by the router but again I had no HW changes (neither on computer side, nor on router side)
1/ How can I figure out where is the issue ?
2/ Is there a SW which allows optimisation of Internet taking into account I am NOT connected directly to the DSL modem but that I am connected behind a wireless router (54Mbits) ?
