Is it just me or is there something wrong with SN? The speed of moving between posts is very slow, logging in and out takes ages and photos - no chance. Anybody else having this problem?

Try a speed test on your own connection. The problem might be at your end.

Thanks for responses. Must be me then. My download speed is 2.83 mbps and upload speed 0.23 mpbs whatever that means? Are these figures good or poor? My IT knowledge is not great!

Found this online it may help(C)

Thanks for your reply, got it sorted now. Ran Windows Command Prompt as administrator (type 'cmd' in the Start menu search box, right click 'Run as administrator) then typed in 'netsh int ip reset', pressed enter then restarted. Browsers are loading pages really quickly again.

Hello Canadian, I've just tried that suggestion and am now waiting for a restart to occur. Fingers Crossed. If it works I'll revert.

Hi Canadian (again),

Ok it seems to have helped and pages are loading more quickly compared to yesterday. It's not mach 1 but at least I can use SN again sensibly. Thanks very much for the help and the tip.

Those numbers are very poor, what speed are you paying for.

Fiordland NZ west coast

I have just done a 7 day discovery expedition from P reservation Inlet to Doubtful Sound on board the Milford Wanderer small 30metre vessel top speed 10 knots 32 passengers and 6 crew The trip starts at Manapouri with a ferry to the bottom of Wilmott pass then a helicopter ride over the peaks to land on a barge then on to the boat it was just a great start to the trip we spent 3 days pottering around scrambling ashore eating fresh abs crayfish and blue cod and mussels plenty to do and see we then had short open sea passage 3 hours to Dusky S pointsound Cook had spent time there so there are plenty of points of interestseals and dolphins and good kayaking
3 days and back to sea a bit of rock and roll for a few hours and we entered Doubtful Sound and down came the rain and the waterfall poured down
and that was the end of the trip good food good companions no phones or wwf or tvs

I have no idea what speed I'm paying for as it's not something that has arisen until you asked the question. I'll have to delve into the matter and report back.

Delving completed. According to my internet provider I might achieve speeds of "Up To" 17mbps although the average on a good day is 7 to 8 mbps. Currently I'm at 3.2mbps which for my geographical area is condsidered reasonable. Not being in any way savvy about this I assume it's OK. In theory the UK government (the one just gone) has indicated that superfast broadband is on its way to us rural dwellers but then they've been saying that for a long time. Perhaps an SLT would be quicker if Portishead Radio was still around!

I pay my provider $35.00 dollars a month for 130 mbps. Of course the more devices you plug into that it will drop. I have a Desktop PC, a Laptop, Ipad and iPhone. But being out in the sticks you would have a problem. You can always try a Wi-Fi booster to see if that would help, if it didn't work take it back for a refund.

MMA, you probably know this but the more people using the wi-fi the weaker it gets so at night every swinging Tally..... is on the web.

I have had similar problems, it has improved by turning off the Router wait 20 seconds then switch back on, nothing ventured as is said. Good luck (C)
