    Default Net Speed Slowing....any tips?

    Im running Windows 7(preinstalled) and over the last week or so noticed net surfing speed and page load times have slowed. Any tips? Ive loaded CC cleaner and done some of the other standards(empty recycle bin, clear cache, etc etc) but is there anything else Im overlooking? I noticed it in Chrome as well as Firefox so I know its not a browser issue.

    How old is your router Hip?

    I just took my 5 year old Motorola Surfboard back to comcast and asked for a new one. The new one FLIES compared to the old one.

    Just a thought.

    I have Cox like you do as they're the only real choice in town. Do you know which bundle you have? Looks like "essential." I have "preferred" which is the next step up. As you can see there is quite a difference in speed.
