so, yes i know there are a million threads out there but...
i have a connection an its slow in both ff and chrome...
however i can ping sites and get the same response time as my xp machine which runs fast. usually around the 40ms mark with no lost packets.
also when i do installs eg. of chrome etc, i was getting up to 500kB/s download.
I just cant seem to replicate this browsing, its loading up at a dial up pace. The last time I had an issue like this was setting up my mums work laptop on our home network where the work had specific proxy settings, so we turn the off and it works fine.
I do not know how to tinker this
