That's the connection speed between your computer and your router. If it's only 1Mbps you'll need to run through some wireless diagnostic steps such as changing the wireless channel on your router, making sure you have the latest drivers installed for your wireless card, etc.
This isn't a BT issue. This isn't a Blizzard issue. This is something very strange across the whole of the UK it seems.
Check out Virgin media's forums - they report identical issues about WoW not working. And it isn't just WoW, but other online games by different developers and publishers. Sky users also have the same issues.
There are also issues with websites not working. I myself cannot access Kotaku, or any Gawker media website. Some can't access the BBC websites. I've seen people say Daily Mail and the Sun are inaccessible. It's very strange, since for many people Gawker and BBC will work fine, but they will have websites that they themselves cannot access.
Why would the internet slow down so much for ALL service providers in the UK, prevent access to online games like WoW, and prevent access to a myriad of websites that vary for different users?
yes i done all that ran diagnostics..even put new card in with new drivers..changed channel etc..2laptops upstairs running great but for some reason pc is slow ..less than 15ft away from router lol:) thanks for your advice..anymore ideas would be great thanks
If your laptops are running fine then it's definitely some sort of problem on or around your PC. Is there anything sitting close to it which could be causing interference with the wireless signal?
Yep, I've had problems with websites not loading, slow broadband, and gaming disconnects for a couple of days too. It definitely seems like it is bigger than BT though. A lot of UK service providers are having exactly the same issues. It's very odd.
