video always hangs or Twitter can time out
Posted on 2011-11-01
Whilst in the past this hasn't affected work too much, it is changing.
If you watch a You Tube clip, for example, it can hang for ever, or a couple of refereshes might get it continuing.
But as we now have a Twitter account for work, this is also timing out.
We had an Annex-M broadband account set up last year to give us no contention.
Upload has improved but normal broadband speed hasn't increased much, but I guess with no contention, it should be okay.
Right, there are about ten to twenty people at head office all using Windows 7 or XP.All fully patched.
We have an SBS server and a 2003 server, all running Sophos.
The gateway is a SonicWall TZ190.
I spoke to the ISP to see if they were throttling the connection, whoops, that upset them. They said it might be a setting in the FireWall!
Any ideas why streaming video or Twitter for example is hanging.
Where do I look.
Oh this isn't just in Internet Explorer.
