The first time I connected to broadband it appeared awesome, I downloaded some big files really fast. My worry is now everything is about the same speed as the 56k modem. I also have some odd settings, under network connections I have 1394 connection Enabled 1394 net adapter #2 Local area connection Enabled Firewalled Belkin 11mbps Wireless Virtual Private Network To Vigor Disconnected WAN miniport (PPTP) I have run a speed tester online and it says I compare with a 56k modem. I am using a Dray Tek Vigor 2600 WE adsl series router and at the moment 2 machines are using the internet connection directly. If this is usual I must say for the cost its rather disappointing. Thanks any help appreciated. Also. My daughter has a laptop that she uses for school with a different make of wireless card. It appears not to detect my network, do I need to get a different card for home use or are there settings that can be added that will not mess up the school settings.
