Hello,
In the last 24 hours I have noticed a 'slower downloading' of my internet browsing. Almost every I try to do like refresh pages, watch videos, post topics and click on links it takes forever. Youtube videos or online streams take forever to load and they play in 'clips' not straight through. Even music played through WMP is slow and clippy.

I am using Windows 7 Home Premium with SP 1.

What do I need to do?

Have you done any ping tests or trace routes?

Think I found the problem, maybe not what I expected, but the Landline Phone in my Son's Bedroom was off the hook.

Re-did the Ping Test and it came up with...

Grade A
Ping: 49ms
Jitter: 2ms
Packet Loss: 0%

System is running a lot faster on downloads and uploads.
