check your computer if you have auto update which might be downloading the latest updates to install.. that might be slowing down your PC... im assuming its a decent config (p3 or p4 with 128mb ram or more?)

also download spyware scanners like lavasoft ad-aware personal edition or MS anti-spyware beta (or both!) http://www.microsoft.com/spyware

also use anti-virus, i use the free AVG AntiVirus available at http://free.grisoft.com/

if the links are wrong or something search for them on google...


also please elaborate on what you mean by "cant use the websites" what kind of problem/error are you getting that makes you say that speed is very slow?

The distance between ur PC and Tel. Exchange determines the speed you can get through broadband. So does the quality of connection, wires and presence of joints in the wire. Get your line checked by BSNL guys.
As for the website problem, it might be temporary. If it persists, try setting MRU/MTU value to 1458 and things would be fine. For this to work, you have to configure settings inside the modem. Get ur speed checked from www.broadband.org.in
I would suggest "Bitdefender Pro Plus 8" (AV+Antispam+Firewall). And for spyware scanner, "Spybot S&D". Low PC configuration can also hamper BBand speed to rise.

nah, cutekiran has some other problems, maybe his phone line is really noisy or modem is defective or not setup correctly...or he's an employee of a BSNL competitor trying to drag their good name through the mud 8-P hehei've crossed my personal best on dataone : 30gb downloaded in 3 weeks (thats about 40gb in one month on a 512kbps link woooo)...now, i gotta install a fan next to my laptop/modem and from may 15th to jun15th, download stuff NON-STOP and see how much i can manage.. woooooo
