This is a rather wierd problem. I have WinXP Pro and ethernet based net connection. After enabling the local area connection and starting Firefox, I get a login page where I enter my username and password. After getting logged in, I get a page showing me details like hours used, MB's downloaded etc. Generally I get download speeds of 6-7 kbps. But for the past few days, after logging in, the second page didn't load but I could download at speeds in excess of 100 kbps. Now once again i'm getting logged in properly and my speed has dropped to 6 kbps. Can someone explain how this happened and is it possible to get unrestricted speeds again?
