    Hi there,

    For the past two days I have been experiencing problems on the net. At first I thought I had a virus. I always update my scanner signature when I switch my computer on.

    Some sites like investEd work fine while other like news.com .au take 15 mins to load. I'm with westnet but can't get through. Is there anybody else having difficulty?

    Ps. I heard the banks crashed again!



    Johny. :(

    Yesterday everything went back to normal and was working at 2am. This evening its sloooow again.

    So it's no virus.
    I'm getting a line speed of 1.25 Mbps and a download speed of 0.15Mbps.:eek:

    Googling the net has shown a few people with the same issues. So is anyone else experiencing problems?



    Johny.

    Do you have a wireless router and is it locked down? Maybe it's a neighbour who downloads porn every evening until bedtime.
