A couple days ago, my DSL slowed down to faster than dialup. Any one else have this problem? Anyone know how to fix it?
This is driving me crazy.

Cycle the power (turn off, wait 30 seconds and turn back on) on your modem.

I've got my modem connected to a timer that shuts it off at 4:00 am and turn it back on at 5:00 am. Never had the slowdown previously experienced.

Spyware? Adware? Virus?

In my experience, the modem has to be power cycled every so often.
Thats why I went ahead and hooked up a timer to the thing to save myself the trouble.
Seems like slowdown happens 'bout every 6 weeks or so. Just long enough for you to forget what you did to fix it the last time it happened.;Q
