    Occasionally I will experience a sudden slowdown of my internet connection. When I ask my ISP to do a speed test for me all is well!!! at their end.

    They advise me to shut down the computer (not restart) and disconnect all mains power from same. After five minutes boot up from scratch which should "re synchronize" the modem :confused: Heh presto it works :eek:

    So an external ADSL modem can become confused????????????????????????

    Thanks - Oldie

    They can build up errors certainly. Try a speed test here and tell me what the results are. You can have a good download speed but if the upload speed lags then its all in vain.
