View Full Version : Internet slow after IE5 security upgrade

27-08-2001, 09:26 PM
Have previously used IE5 for years with good response but since upgrading to SR2 from PCW CD and then also upgrading from Microsoft web site for latest (May) security update, My connection to Zfree is painfull !
Whereas before I could connect rapidly and download at 40-50Kb/s (56K modem still connects usually at 48 or 49.3K) now there are long pauses of no communications and when it does communicate, it does so at 18-25 Kb/s
Connecting to Paradise ISP is better but still not as good as before the upgrade. I have tried almost all the adjustments and setup options possible including tweaking the MTU etc.
This is painfull, any ideas ?
Thanks Eddie

Its more likley related to a noisey phone line than IE.

Try checking the quality of your plugs and cables etc.

Thanks for the comments and yes, it looks exactly like noise- However nothing has changed and the slow operation started just 1 hours after it was fine to download the security upgrade and run the cd etc - just too much of a coincidence to my mind !
