Connection from my Laptop to HH4 router Broadband very slow
I am having problems accessing the internet and my Windows Live Mail. I have reset my modem and switched on my laptop. I have checked the IP settings for my network and it seems OK. When I view my network in the networks centre and it appears I am connected and the blue light is steady on the modem but my computer struggles to connect even though the 5 bars are steady on the bottom right and as I say it appears I am connected. I did spent 2 hrs with a BT technician 2 days ago who couldn't find the problem but stopped when he asked me to check the IP settings on "cmd" and there were none. Since then I have inserted the IP settings in the IPv4 settings for my network and as I say it appears to connect and the 5 bars are showing but it takes a very long time to access the internet and download my mail (at least 10 minutes). I am even now using an ethernet connection as before it was impossible to connect but I can connect very slowly with the ethernet connection. Can it be my wireless card or adaptor? I have been into the Adaptor settings and it does say they are working fine. I am at my wits end, I don't know what else to check before I finally succumb to getting an engineer in.
