I am hoping someone can help me figure out why I am having issues with my home internet connection.
I am running Windows 7 (before I was running XP professional and there still was the same issue), my connection seems extremely slow (I have a 10Mb connection), I may be in the middle of a connection and it will suddenly drop, most times if I go to a HTTPs site it will hang.  Sometimes the only fix is to restart the computer.  There are times that I can make a connection with Google Chrome to a website where I normally use Firefox.  The whole thing is extremely confusing, are there tests I can use to determine where the problem lies or could it be with the equipment.
