It's later in the evening. My speed has improved.


Does WiFi slow things down? I'm going to try the desktop. Better performance with direct connection to the modem.

Wifi shouldn't make a real difference unless you've got real weak signal strength.

Kris,

Your ISP is BBN? I used to work for BBN in 2000 - they "founded" the Internet (or, so we claimed). Then we became "GTE Internetworking" and then "Genuity" before the dot-com bubble burst (and we all got laid off).

Is the ISP really BBN?
