I would like to thank in advance, any assistance provided.
The problem is that:
For some reason I have very low internet speed. My connection provided by the ISP clix is at 12MB, speed that I cannot even see on my daily tasks. I called the ISP and asked them to clock my speed, the answer was 4MB and they could not explain why.
In reality tough it does not seem to be even 4MB it looks like it is 512Kb or even less.
I cannot open several pages at the same time, pages take ages to load, and sites with secure socket layer (https) , dont even load (the answer is always the server is taking too long to respond).
At first i tought it was a problem with my router, a Billion Bipac 5100W that came with the 1st ISP roughly 4-5 years ago. I tought that because it was a router for 512kb it wasnt copping very well with the increase of speed. So i bought a new one, the Belkin N1 Wireless router and linked it with a modem Huawei SmartAX MT882, however nothing has changed.
I also tought it was because of the firewall, but I lowered the security on it and still hasnt worked. I have a firewall from zone alarm (free version), together with the provided by the router (belkin n1) and windows XP SP2. Also have installed Kaspersky 6 and Spyboot.
And from what I can see with RegCleaner I dont have too many programs starting up, however I used netstat -a and noticed I have many TCP and UDPs connections. Could this be the reason? but even so is 12Mb not enough to cope with it?
did you power cycle the modem when you hooked up to it? Whenever you add or take out a router you need to turn off the modem to reset the connection.
IPv6 can be found in the network connections properties. Right click the connection your using and select properties.
Yes I have, but if does not connect at all. I did not set up any connection on my computer. I just set the parameters in the page of the router set by the ISP like type of connection (PPoA) and others and it got connected to the internet.
