Sounds like you're being shaped to dialup speed (~50kb/s) when you have used all your download for the month. This is standard for DSL, at least here in Australia.

When the new billing month starts, your speed returns to normal.

I don't know whats wrong whith my internet speed since last summer.My computer downloads diffrent aplications at diffrent speeds.

Speed in downloads and uploads vary hour by hour, day in ,day out, where, when, traffic, connections, etc., etc., etc., can affect the speed. Many, many things affect internet speed, some you can control , some you can't. It may be the ISP , equipment outside, if ALL your equipment is connected correctly, up-to-date, that's about all you can do. It's almost impossible to point at one problem.

Tenda router input eror

It's not the username and password from your ISP. If you try to access your router and you have not changed anything, use the following values:
username = admin
password = admin

Once in the router interface, you will have to configure the router for your DSL-modem (I guess it's DSL since Windstream does not produce cable modems.)
Here fill in the username and password your ISP provided you with.

Let me know if you have any questions.

The internet is working fine and then all of a sudden it goes down and I have to trouble shoot then it comes back on and then goes down again within 30 minutes. It never did it before and it is driving me...

Hi! For the problem your describing, it seems that your problem may be faulty hardware. I've found that the router that your ISP (internet company) provides to you when they setup your internet don't tend to be the most reliable and highest quality, but Siemens is a pretty big name. One thing I would try, which Windstream may have talked you through, is resetting your router. This will reset your router and WiFi, which means the name of your WiFi will be reset, including your password.

Look on the back of the router. You will see 5 different ports back there: DSL, Reset, USB, Ethernet, AC/DC, and I/O. You're looking at the reset button. You need a pencil or something thin. Stick the pencil inside to the reset button, and continue pressing the reset button for 5-10 seconds. Your router is now reset. Now, see if your problem persists.

If your problem does persist, most likely your problem is a faulty router. In that case, I would call/contact the hardware manufacturer, Siemens, and see what they have to say.
Hope this helps. Thanks for using FixYa.

You can do a check download/upload speedtest approximate speed for your "Virgin Broadband connection" @

I had windstream internet services installed today,i can get on line but i cannot e-mail services

If you are using Outlook Express / Microsoft Outlook or any other email application you will have to set your email up first. The information is usually provided by the ISP. For quickest help it may be easier to contact your ISP's support line.
