More information please. No help with no information!

Do you have your PC connected directly to the modem, or to a router? If you use a router, what model? Do you run torrents? How many open connections?

More information please...

sorry about that direct connection with modem supplied no torrents pretty simple set up . when i want to play xbox change cords over only one device connected at a time. it feels like my connection gets clogged up over time sorry not very computer savvy

ok im back with an update on my situation a telstra clear rep has been in touch with me and after checking my connection has told me i have no problems with my connection and they only have control over their connection to me and they are not responsible for where i go on the web and pretty much told me its my xbox not my connection funny that since i have the same problems with a ps3 ALL games i play on pc (battlefield 2, world of warcraft ,age of conan) and web browsing im refusing to turn my modem off each day and its getting worse each day pictures arent even coming up on websites anymore so does anyone have any recommendation for a good adsl provider in christchurch ? because this is just becoming a headache its been a year now so enough is enough and funnily enough i read a post on the telstra forums titled peak time lag and this seems very relevent to me

The telstraclear system works best when one is not changing what device is pluged in to a cable modem, it gets confused about the mac address over time.

simple fix would be to get a router & put that inbewteen them. then you wouldint have to play with the cables all the time.

the speed issue, scince i have left telstraclear i cant have a look at your area, it might be everyone on your leg of the cable network using the internet ?

have you done a tracert to the servers that are responding slowley at diffrent times of the day ?

which parts of the internet are slow ?

is it international or national ?

also for web browsing to be slow ... what operating system are you using ? when was it last reinstalled ? what antivirus / firewall software, do direct downloads of files go slow or fast (what speed in KB/ps) and what are the computer specs ..

for a doctor to know what medication you need he needs to ask a few questions, dont answer the questions & he will politeley hand you a placiebo & a bill.

I iz your trusted friend

ditto to what Reuben said, get a router (not ADSL Modem/Router combo thingy), and have it interfacing between all the local network, and the cable modem.


My speed has been great - Sockburn/Upper Riccarton here.
