Not my IP....checked it with my laptop & even with a wireless connection I get around 12000 kbps. Checked my desktop on various internet speed tests & it is getting around 3000-3500 kbps. I used to get 14000 kpbs on my desktop until the other day. Nothing special happened that I can recall. My upload speed is still the same though....around 760 kbps. I have ran every spyware check, virus check etc to no avail. I believe maybe my network adapter might be going bad ??? Anyone know how to test this theory ?

I have a Dimension 8300 running XP Pro version 2002 with service pack 3.

Pentium 4  - 3.20GHz with 3.00 GB of RAM.  250 GB Hard drive & 500 GB hard drive.

My network adapter is an Intel Pro/100 VE with driver version
I had recently been downloading larger files. (before this happened).

Do you think my motherboard is going bad ?

I'm not that literate in PC....mostly self-taught.

Any help appreciated.
