I've got this weird thing on my computer the last few days/week - out of the blue, my broadband modem is keeps slowing down, dropping to between 800 and 480 kbps. We live in a rural area so speed's not fast at the best of times but we used to be able to get at least 2Mbps. Would anyone have any ideas what would make this happen so suddenly? There's just one computer connected to one ADSL (or DSL, can't remember) modem - no wireless, no home network.
It's got very hot here the last few days (for the UK, anyway!) could that have anything to do with it? I'm sure it's been this warm before and we've had the modem a few years.
There are only two or three ISPs we can use in this area and they're all about as bad as each other, so I'm not sure I could do anything if it's their end. Though why it would be so suddenly, I don't know. I've looked at their site and can't see any downtime or other status issues.
Any help/advice/ideas/input would be great. Thanks. :)
