Hi folks. I've recently been experiencing a massive reduction in my download speed. 500kbps down to ~49kpbs. The only changes that coincide with the anamoly is the installation of the new IE7. But I didn't notice it immediately, so I don't think that is the problem. Unfortunately, I don't have access to the modem or router that is supplying my connection. My landlord has claimed that everything is working fine on his end and he says the ISP (Batelco) is reporting the same thing. My NIC (Intel Pro 100 on the 865GBF mobo) is reporting to be connected at 100Mbps. Here's the funny part. My upload speed is unchanged. So, I'm downloading at ~49kbps, and uploading at the normal ~205kbps. I've enabled and disabled the connection severa times, even used Repair. But nothing seems to be working. Any ideas on this? Thanks for the help. EDIT: Oh, and I've run Crap Cleaner, Ad-Aware, and my AVG antivirus is up to date and running.
