Everytime I leave a download on overnight or over a series of days, and after the download is finished, my internet is DREADFULLY slow. I cannot even connect to pages like google, I get a "connection timed out" message from firefox. Connecting to 192.168.1.1, my router's page, also gives me a timed out message. Whe I ping 192.168.1.1, I get "connection timed out" the whole way through, and usually has over 75% packet loss... However when I manually restart the router and modem, everything is fine again. I can connect to the router page etc. But everytime I reset the router and modem, I have to re-enter all the router preferences which is annoying. I know that when I reset my router, I get a new IP... but does anyone know why the slowdown occurs in the first place?
