Today I am experiencing extremely high ping (200-500 ms instead of usual 20 ms) and low bandwidth (3 Mbps instead of usual 5 Mbps). What can be causing it?
I am using Windows 7, ADSL line, I am aware of having installed following background applications which can be causing some background traffic, each of them running with default settings:
- email checker (once per 10 minutes)
- web page change notification (once per hour)
