    Hello to all,

    Hope someone can help me with a small problem that's bugging my. My desktop is connected to a ADSL2+ router with a net cable. My connection is 12 Mb and my upload should be about 1mb at best. Lately I have been getting uploads as slow as 25 kb/s instead of a normal 900 or so, my download is fine at about 10 Mb. Thinking my router or cable was at fault I unplugged the cable from the desktop and plugged it into my laptop and the upload was the normal 900 kb/s Thinking the Ethernet connection to my motherboard (Asrock P4VM900-SATA2) was faulty I disabled it and installed a new pci Ethernet adapter and thought my problems would be over but there was no change. Getting pretty tired of this I unplugged the cable, installed a USB wireless dongle and everything was fine, upload 935.0kb/s download 8.85Mb/s. I prefer to be connected to the router via cable instead of wireless so no my question is: Does anyone know what is causing my problems?

    My desktop has Win XP recently installed with all the SP's and updates and I do NOT have any viruses or malware and apart from this problem everything is great.

    try the following

    in safemode with networking
    keep tapping F8 as the PC starts a menu should appear
    choose safemode with networking
    Now test the speed - if that works ok - then something in normal mode is blocking and we need to go through a controlled process of trail and error

    also try this reset and see if that solves issue
    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2/SP3.

    Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following commands:

    Note: Type only the text in bold for the following commands.

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults, type: netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults, type: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reboot the machine.

    Post back the results here
    rightclick in the box
    select all
    enter
    control key + C key - to copy
    then reply here and
    control key + V to paste

    Hello,

    Tried what you suggested and there was no change. Decided to try another ZyXEL router I''ve got and problem solved. Thanks for your help.
