slow internet but fast(ish) connection? what wrong here
Posted on 2012-03-26
Computer at home is fairly up to date, imac.
Net gear router connected wirelessly and also previously recently on ethernet.
Netgear (DG834v2) router/modem show connection speed of 3 mps. Now in our part of the woods thats not too bad, believe it or not, much better than it was.
However recently both wired and ethernet has become v slow. Shows endlessly "transferring data" and taking minutes to get to pages.
This is a fairly recent problem. No known changes have been made.
also loses connection often.
Internet provider is Zen, a UK company well regarded for speed and service.
have not contacted them yet as they will say have you checked your own set up.
Where to start?
