Question about Computers & Internet
My parents have recently switched the internet and phone line to talktalk after discovering it was cheaper than our previous BT line.
I have read many reports of poor connection and to be honest mine is not bad. However i'm a world of warcraft player and when I go into 25 man raids the internet cuts off everytime. Also at peak times the bandwidth is low (my normal raiding time).
I was wondering if there was anything on my router i could change to try and increase my bandwidth or is it all up to the internet provider?
The internet also seems to cut out whenever it is given a 'heavy load' so to speak. When uploading/downloading large quantities of info (E.g. playing HL2 DM) the internet will only last for 15 mins max before it cuts out and i have to exit the game and wait a few minutes before reloading the game to cinnect again.
Anything I can do?
Any help is much appreciated =D
While I am not a BT user (I live in the States), I can say that, in general, there is nothing you can do in your router to increase your bandwidth.
With that said, WoW doesn't take a lot of bandwidth..people play it over dialup. Do you by chance have some sort of P2P software running that may be generating excessive network traffic?
