    Internet-REALLY SLOW!

    I don't know but for some reason my Internet is really slow today.
    Tried googling but there's mixed answers.
    Scanned computer for viruses.
    ISP: Virgin Media

    It's really p**s taking!

    Try[URL="speedtest.net"] this[/URL] and[URL="pingtest.net"] this[/URL]. High ping will cause PS3 to be slow/unplayable. If you have 1%+ packet loss that could be the issue

    What was it in the end. If you click forum link on the results you can post it like this :

    Any packet loss can mean that there's faulty wiring / cables, or a broken modem. 55 causes a bit of lag on games, nothing too bad. Much higher and it would be very noticeable. I'm on spotify currently, but VM upload speeds tend to be poor causing the data being sent to the server to be slow and when it's returned/downloaded it is normal/fast causing high jitter

    I'm with Virgin in Glasgow my speed dropped below 5 earlier to-nite, switched of router & modem for 30 secs ,back up to over 19.:thumbsup:
