Hi there, I am new to this site so here goes.
4 weeks ago my internet was running normally, fast efficient, life was good. Then one day it all changed, I can still connect and view websites no problems, but I can no longer stream or download any files larger than around 5mb completely. Also as a side effect, my Xbox Live (not 360) broke down at the same time. I have been hnting the internet for answers for weeks, to no avail. I usually watch internet videos through websites like YouTube, Veoh, GoFish and TV Links. At first they start streaming at the usual speed, but anywhere between 10 to 80% it stops completely. I can still see what I streamed no problem, but I can't see the completed video. Oh I did not change any settings to bring this about, it just did it by itself.
I have tried doing the following:
Clear cache/increased size
Checked for viruses/spyware/malware (All clear)
Call ISP (Useless information)
Used Firefox 2/IE 7/Safari (New XP one)
That's what I am able to do with my limit on PC workings. I know the basics, but I am no expert. Here are my specs:
Windows XP Home Edition (SP 2)
TalkTalk ISP 2.2Mbps
Globespan USB Modem (Wired)
AVG Free Virus Scanner
Spybot S&D/Lavasoft spyware scanner
If you need more information, please ask what kind. I am desperate for help, I play Xbox Live very often and I am in a clan and I am part of the leadership. Plus I kick butt on it. Please, please, please help me!
