    Hello

    Please please anybody help, this is driving me crazy. I have two PC's one laptop running XP one tower running Vista 32. Both machines are wireless. Initially both machines were fine running at around 200+kb but now the Vista machine connects to a download at around 130 creeps to 150 then 145 then 155 then 130 then 140 then down and so on until it gets down to 30kb where I get fed up and kill the download. Tried the same links with the XP machine which hits now 260kb.
    This happens wired or wireless on the tower. Have run virus check and ad-aware and Spybot. Tried disabling AV and IPv6 mode. Stepping up then back on Network controller driver.
    It's been happening the last week or so and did do some messing around to get media centre happy with my 360 about the same time this started I think. This is my second Vista install on this PC and the first ran faultless so might be a case of a reinstall if I get too fed up. Any help would be so welcome you would not believe.

    Cheers

    Daz

    You can give one of these a try:

    Run this in Command Console [Start->Run->CMD]
    Download TuneUp Utilities
    At the main screen, click on Optimize & Improve
    Then, click on TuneUp System Optimizer
    Under Select a Task, click Accelerate downloads and Internet surfing
    Follow instructions in the next screens.
