    Can anyone help me here?

    I currently have a bog-standard 2.4GB PC.

    I have 1MB p\s broadband.

    Yet my PC speed won't buffer above 200kb p\s.

    Help me anyone.

    This is especially when I use MWP.

    try this site to check your speed

    http://9337387.home.icq.com/main37.html

    i dont know what your contention ratio is but in UK we have 50:1 for consumer and 20:1 for business

    so consumer 50 people could be sharing that 1MB pipe
