Anybody have trouble with there internet connection at certain times during the day?
I've been on since about 8pm tonight an have had a heck of a time connecting to and loading stuff from different sites, it's like there is no connection, then it comes and goes in spurts or it's just really slow.
Now since 10:30 it's back to the way it was, much faster and more consistent.
Could it be that just too many people are on at one time?
It's frustration, I think I'm better off not even trying until late at night.

It seems as time goes on my computer ack's up more and more, certain times of the day like now it's aggravating. This is why I don't go in the chat room cause there's no way I'd keep up. Late at night or first thing in the morning it's faster and more consistent, I guess I need better equipment. The computer at work is lightning fast all the time, click on anything and it's right there, even full length movies.
I think I'm just going to come on late at night and early in the mornings, I guess I'll get more done on my GTs won't I.

Try this site, don't down load anything, just do a test. After the first test, do a couple other plases around the country.

Classic signs of too much traffic on the system.......We were exactly the same until Rogers upgraded their equipment to help with all the extra customers...

Doug, who is your provider and is it high speed....If its Bell DSL or cable, you shouldnt be seeing these problems....If its dialup, cellular or satellite, I can see it...WE fought with Rogers cellular for 6 months before they did anything.
