If that doesn't show any issues, you can be positive it is on your side, with your computer/router. When you get a tech see if he can check the speed on the line past the router as well so you can rule that out/find out if that is the problem.
Personally after reading through this thread though, I'm thinking it's your firewall on the router or possibly AV/personal firewall. Have you tried connecting a different computer/laptop to the same connection and testing that out? It's all about troubleshooting and just brainstorming and not doing anything won't get you any closer to the solution I'm afraid.
Cant beleve i didn't think of that lol that tells you how much things like this make you brain-dead sometimes lol. I just tried on my sister's laptop and the speed is the exact same...thankfully. so its not my machine, its the broadband, seriously no idea what happend to it though, Thanks alot for that.
And a big thanks to all ye chaps for the great help, as per usual of course
+1 to all for the awesome help.
<< Serious fail for not trying another machine right off the bat tbh lol, heads wrecked atm Edited by Asmodean - 5/17/11 at 3:03pm
