THrottling different computers internet speed over a network

by Schiznak / November 20, 2006 1:33 PM PST

my brother has somehow throttled my computer to 70kbps, and the laptop to the same. At first i thought we just got capped for downloading too much, but his internet runs fine. I cant seem to find the option in my routers settings to fix this, im using a D-link, DI-542

can anyone help, please

I've already asked him, and he denies everything.

try a direct connection to the modem and see the difference.

If you think your brother did something in both of your computers, do a system restore and change all passwords.

Sorry, no more help.
