Hi guys, first post on your forum.

The area I live in has a very slow 'best possible' broadband speed, around 2 Megs however I have never got any more than 800 Kb/p/sec. What makes it worse is the longer I use the internet the slower it gets. If I turn off the router and wait a couple of minutes and turn it back on when it reconnects to Pipex it's back to 700/800 Kb.

The router is one of Pipex's Thomson speedtouch ST585 ones but I also had the same problem with my last ISP when I was using a Netgear wireless router. This is what makes me think it's something in my computer set up.

Any ideas? continually turning off and on is becoming a pain.

On another tech help site I found a suggestion to do the following,

1. Go to Start-> Run-> and type gpedit.msc
2. Expand the Administrative Templates branch
3. Expand the Network tab
4. Highlight QoS Packet Scheduler
5. Click on Limit Reservable Bandwidth and check the enabled box
6. Then Change the Bandwidth limit % to 0 %

Trouble is I'm running XP home and I can't access gpedit.msc.

Anyone got any ideas I'm getting a bit threadbare with this problem.

Philmose.
