For a while now, my internet connection has been seriously slow. I have changed ISP and there is still no difference. My main problem is when I play games, and it is literally unplayable. For example, Xbox Live Multiplayer games are just way to slow. I am constantly "Red Barred", whereas my friends from the same area (1-2 Same ISP) Have perfect connection.
I am on an unlimited plan with Spintel (spin.net.au - Plan: Harmony Three ) and my current router is DSL-2730B running v1.02 Firmware.
How do I go about fixing this? I am lead to believe that it is possibly my router, but being a student, I don't have the money to go and buy a $200 router.
These are the things I've already tried:
- Disconnected All Other Connected Devices - Rebooting Router - Updating Firmware - Resetting Router (Factory Reset - Enter Information all over again) - SpeedTest.net (1.5mbps, 0.4mb Upload, 255 ping (Averages))
Also, another issue I've noticed with speedtest.net is that it says I'm across the other side of the country :c
