Broadband speed

I am currently on 1 Mbps broadband and I recently noticed my connection was slower than usual. I ran a few tests and it shows that I am getting nowhere near the speed I am supposed to, most of the tests show I am getting around 100 Kbps. Does anyone have any ideas on how I can get my speed back to normal again?

I'm using ADSL through a Belkin modem/router.

is subject to noise on the phone line. Do you have the proper filters? If so, you need to contact your provider, explain the problem, and have them come out and do a noise test.

They will probably tell you that everything looks ok, but demand that they come out and test the line from the interface.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
