That happened to me a few weeks back.

I had been using ROKU and then when I went to use my computer, sheesh! was it slow!

I unplugged and reset the router and my speed came back after that.

Yes, have had slowdowns tonight (but not during the day) in eastern WA state, but depends on destination. Could get to Google Earth databases just fine (had to download lots of new areas), but FR and several other sites were extremely slow (even when I had exited Google Earth).

They are testing the first stages of Obama's Executive Order to seize control the internet.

Obama signs order outlining emergency Internet control

Am a retired AF COMM guy/still here on the udder side. Last three days, the Web access from “guaranteed access points” has been miserable at best, very odd! Protected nets still running 5x5. We’ll see...

Everything is fine here in the land of FR on AT&T! My U-Verse FTTN VDSL is cruising along at the usual speeds! No idea if Comcast in this area is OK or not.

Maybe knowing who your provider is would help?

Al Gore found out about your analog cameras, and decided to teach you a lesson by turning your internets and googles down a few stops.

That’s right, I forgot about all the pictures...

Maybe unplug the cable from the router and blow real hard on the cable end— it may be clogged up with bits of photos or something.

You don't need to get online to surf the internet. Just download it.

“Obama signs order outlining emergency Internet control”
________________________________________________

I am curious as to what, if any, effect that would have on
the internet outside of the USSA.
As for today’s internet, I have noticed no problems this week.
Keep in mind, FR is like being my homepage. It is ALWAYS
connected 24/7. If they monkey with the internet in the US, I should know it when FR is not available.

I’ve been watching videos today. Just fine.
Maybe Netflix or your connection is having problems?

I agree; BofA was moving very S L O W on Tuesday, but I'd guess the far east, or some annonymous hactivist group.

Central NY.
I don’t know how today it will be. Yesterday I kept getting error messages. Pages wouldn’t display. Rebooted many times, changed phone numbers and finally gave up. Thought I was hacked.

So was mine yesterday, for a few hours. I’m on a new CommieCast cable modem at 53Mbps down/13Mbps up and LinkSys 4Gb Router, but it slowed to > half that, by 1pm.

I shut down all apps, Unplugged the cable modem, router, replugged and restarted WIN-7 Pro. It was back-to-normal - actually above 53Mbps - after the restart.

Try www.speedtest.net/ for before/after unplug/replug procedures, for measuring diff.

Just trying to help...

It’s been slow for about a week now on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Super slow response time and Netflix is nearly impossible.

I went for a period of about 3 months with poor internet connections.
It turned out to be someone stealing my WiFi because I believed Verizon and was using their default WEP secutity.
I discovered the problem whenI noticed one more IP address than I had equipment for.
Symptoms were: Roku would frequently lose sync and have to re-acquire the video; slow internet response; really slow internet response; and other things.

Apple’s iOS6 came out yesterday - everyone was likely updating their iPhones, iPads, AppleTV, etc. My iPhone update took over an hour via WiFi. I tried to do a simple security update to my MacBook about 10 last night, and it said it was going to take 6 hours. Did in this morning at 6:30 in 15 mins.

Been having the same issues w/ Netflix over the last few days as well, but internet connection has been fine. Thinking it might be on Netflix’s end.

Your answer is the most likely I am thinking, my puter went super slow as well, Yahoo mail lost my password and etc.

Apple could be the proverbial Skynet?

Myself I am just posting less and less on FR because I am prepping for when it all shuts down, which will happen soon, and I will be ready and not panicking like millions of entitlement internet users.

You read my mind. I didn’t know how to tactfully say it!

BofA (Bank of Afghanistan) has the best interest rates. Do your research.
