Since the past one month, my internet has been slow.. When i download it seems to be pretty fast, but many websites do no load.. Even google loads only after refreshing many times.. Yahoomail, Youtube all take a lot of time to load and only load upon refreshing many times.. Though youtube initially takes long, once it is loaded fine, the videos buffer quite fast.. i ran a scan with mbam and sas.. the log showed that there are no infections.. So i think it may not be a virus but i aint sure.. any advice what i could do next?

What kind of connection are you using?

What browser are you using?

Being summer time and school is out there is a lot more traffic at sites which can result in slower responses getting to some sites. Does this happen with all sites that you go to, or just some of them?

What kind are you getting, not what is advertised?

Is this a hard line connection?

If you are not experiencing any other problems then I would suggest calling you ISP and see if they can help you narrow down you problem from their end.

i went to www.opendns.com and followed their instructions i.e i changed the preferred dns server and alternate dns server fields.. now my internet seems to be alright.. what exactly was the problem?.. i really did not understand what had gone wrong..
