Internet speed = 2.75mbps
Ping = 73ms
On this network, are 2 wireless machines, and one wired machine. When accessing Ebay from a wireless node, all is fine and all loads quickly, however, when using the wired node, Ebay is so slow, it is unusable. Strangely the wired node can accesses all other sites fine.
At this point I should probably tell you the wired node is Windows XP using Firefox and IE, and the wireless node is Windows 7 using Firefox and IE.
The wired node is using an on-board LAN connecting to the router using CAT 5e.
To try and resolve the problem, scans have been done, router reset, ran in safe mode with networking, flushed the dns, reset winsokets, and finally reinstalled windows XP. All this failed.
As the wireless nodes can access ebay with no problem, I thought Iíd try and use one of the wireless nodes as a proxy for the wired node, and bizarrely Ebay loaded a little quicker (but still not fast enough to be usable). I have tried setting the dns settings for the windows IPv4 protocol to another dns server, but this didnít help.
Can anyone recommend anything else that might help resolve the problem please?
