Hello,
I am having trouble with my internet speed at my computer my provder says the speed is fine from their end 100mbps but when i check the speed at my end i am only getting 32mbps the other clue is when I am on a web page it constantky flickers.
I have reset the router by turning off the power and then back on the other thing i have done is change the ethernet cable to see if that was the problem help!
Thanks

do you really have a 100mbps connection ?
32mbps is still very high and should not flicker
I had a 2mbps and that worked fine,
in the UK 24Mbps is very high , and speeds of around 6Mbps are probably average

Virgin Media Cable has just started rolling out 100Mbps in UK

I recently changed to an approx 10-12Mbps service and can stream HD video from skyplayer and iplayer with no flicker or issue at all

would you try some speedtests

i have moved to networking forum , where you should get more appropriate answers
