I am using internet within a residence, and the network setup has problems:
- During low usage periods, I works fine.
- During high usage (approx between 12h00 and 23h30), the connexion has a wierd behaviour:
Connections via a browser are slow (flash video, webpages, web downloads), whereas others connections such a skype or online games are fine.
Interestingly, if I download a file via a browser (for example, a 30MB install file), the download speed is high during 1 or 2sec, and then it stops. Sometimes, it doesn't stop, but the rate is low (~100kb/sec).
I can overcome the problem of downloads by using orbit downloader and paste in the url, and orbit downloads it at a continuous 2 or 3MB/sec rate.
So I have 2 questions:
- How can I troubleshoot what is the connection problem ?
- Does a program like orbit exists to speed up browser bandwidth ? (for seeing web pages and/or flash videos)
