I live in an apartment with an ADSL connection shared by four people. We all use wireless and recently have experienced extremely slow Internet; we cannot even open web pages.
One of the flatmates noticed that from his computer, the "Received" value in the "Wireless Network Connection Status" will jump up to an extremely large amount like "190,871,937,887", which happens after he turns on his computer. He did not do any large downloading.
We previously assumed that the value indicated the traffic for the whole network, but from monitoring my computer for almost a week (my girlfriend and I share one computer, another guy is not using the network too much), I never saw such a large figure.
From the following question:
it seems that the value is only for one computer, not the whole network for our apartment.
Here is a screenshot of what the Connection Status screen looks like sometimes:
Does anyone have any ideas how can we fix the slow speed of the network?
