I've got a spare router somewhere if you want to try that.
Who's the ISP?
Cheers mate, i think i've got a spare router myself, i might try that if i have to. ISP's Virginmedia, they've been pretty helpful, accessed my laptop remotely a couple of times, didn't find any faults and tweaked the router settings. I've switched off the power-saving mode on the wireless drivers and that seems to have helped a bit, just streamed the 11-minute video of Saints 75 Wigan 0 (well it is Good Friday
) and it only buffered once. It'll probably kill itself again as soon as i try to stream anything on the iPlayer though.
Interestingly the sites it takes longest to load are these boards and the Chronicle website, i can't help wondering if the computer's trying to tell me something.
