slow download speeds

Recommended Posts

I,ll start by saying i,m not an expert but ive been through the settings guides and ive been onto my routers website and enabled the upnp thingy.I used to have great speeds before i changed my broadband supplier and now it seems after i try changing my settings to what they say in the guides its got worse and my download speeds are terrible most of the time.I did get the green light once and things were fine for a couple of days but without me touching anything i lost the green light and it slowed right down and me trying to fix it has made it worse. i,m hoping a couple of changes is all i need and i can leave it alone so any help would be apreciated.

my broadband is now with talktalk 8 meg and my router is a huawei echolife hg520b and my operating system is windows xp sercice pack 2.

Here's the port forwarding guide on the Wiki: Manually Configure Port Mapping at Router setup page.

Compare what you did against the instructions from there and if you still can' get it working, let us know where you got lost.

Also make sure that you don't have any other third-party software firewall installed on your computer which may block inbound connections.

It will help you a lot if you try to understand what you're doing and why, rather than looking for a set of instructions to blindly follow and hope that it works. Intelligent adaptation to your individual circumstances, in pursuit of a known goal, will serve you best.
