I posted something a while back about at around 150-200 kb/s. From what i've heard thats about right for a cable modem user. However now i cant seem to get my download speed over 20kb/s. I've also noticed that just browsing the web has become rather slow for a cable modem. I have a linksys router so i thought that wasn't configured proparly, but i just hooked my laptop up to it and was able to download the same file using the same client at over 100kb/s. I think something is wrong with the way my computer is set up. Is there anyway to check this out?

1. networking problems (config on slow machine)
2. spyware (adaware solution)(could be the site you are using)
3. nic on each comp one could be configured wrong
4. trojan (could be the site you are using)
5. virus (could be the site you are using)
what time of day did you try using your pc's online
6. lousy internet service provider. 100k is not that fast for cable. we are 250-300k all the time.
also, don't mention that name on here again as it only leads to illegal discussions.
