Default Vista speeds down.

Hello, I am running Vista Premium on my laptop. Specs are 3 gigs ram, 1.8 Intel centrino processor. I noticed before i had download speeds op 399+ kb/s and now everything has dropped to under 20 kb/s. Streaming video has to buffer for 2 hours before I can watch 20 mins. Could someone please help me out. Thanks.

Default Re: Vista speeds down.

I would say this has nothing to do with your operating system. It is far more likely to be your ISP. Does it affect all downloads or just those from certain places? It's entirely possible that you're trying to use the internet at peak times and as a result of a lot of traffic you're having to share your bandwidth with a lot of other people.

Could you have broken your download cap?
