    low speed


    hi everyone

    I do not get a very fast speed on my computer but it slows down until I reset my modem, and then it speeds up again,
    is there anything I can do to fix this problem.

    regards calmat

    Is it wifi you are using and the speed is slowing ? If so then try changing the wireless channel on the modem.

    Not sure in that case. If rebooting the PC has no effect on the problem, whereas a reboot of the modem does correct the issue then it sounds very much like a problem with the modem or a problem at the other end of the line (your service provider).
