over the last 3 or 4 days my wireless connection has started becoming very slow and oddly it uploads faster than it downloads at th moment.
I have tried scanning with MBAM which reports its clean and I have laso used SuperAntiSPyware which cleaned a couple of items and now says that it's clean.

Apart from this problem I seem to have no other issues.

I have even tried re-installing another partition with Win7 on it but the problem even persists on that as well.

I tried to load avira AV but couldnt get it to install so i think there is something wrong somewhere.

I would appreciate it if someone could help me work throughh these issues.

I should also state that I did have this problem with my wired connection as well at first but after calling tech support they said they couldnt ffiund any problems but then suddenly the pseed went back to normal on the wired machine but not on this wireless one.

I look forward to hearing from someone in the near future.

How is the speed in Safe Mode With Networking?

How to Access Safe Mode With Networking

While the computer is turning on, tap F8 repeatedly until a black screen with white text appears. Using your arrow keys highlight the option Safe Mode With Networking and hit Enter.

Note: If you're using Windows XP, connect to your modem or router with an Ethernet cable, then follow these directions.

Where is the router in relation to the problem PC?

What type of wireless network is it (A,B,G,N,etc)?

Have you made any recent hardware or software changes?

It is a wireless G adapter and the router is in the next room where it has always been.

I havent mnade any changes to my system prior to this problem happening.

As I said earlier this system was working fine with same speed as wired pc up until a few days ago.

I have even tried a system restore since then but that hasnt made and difference either.

Try power cycling both the modem and router.

How To Power Cyle

“Power Cycle” process to reboot or reset the modem/router.

1) Switch off all the devices modem, router and computers also unplug their power cables.

2) Wait at least 30 seconds.

3) Plug the power cords back in, but don’t switch them on.

4) First turn on the modem and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.

5) Next switch on the router (if a seperate device ) and then wait for a few minutes for it to settle and all the lights to become stable.

6) Now turn on your computer and test out the internet.

I can't see how but is it possible for the USB adapter to start causing slow speeds ? I thought it would of just packed up rather than doing this.
Is there any way I can check this ???

It's possible, but normally the USB dongles work fairly well.

The only way I could suggest to test it is to purchase another and see if speeds improve.
