12. I think I had to have it

for that speed test but don't remember for sure. I don't have Java on my computer at all since the problem with it last week.

2. I've had the same problem.

Same time frame, same home ISP setup. My devices work normally when away from home, but at home it is like going back to dialup. One difference is that I'm using a Linux system. My PS3 downloads of updates are also very slow.

I, too, would appreciate some context for this.

4. We have the same problem. Internet slows to a stop.

Cuts out -then returns. I swear it's comcast squeezing bandwith.

9. That's really slow.

I get 35.62 mbps download and 6.24 mbps upload with Comcast.

I have noticed some hiccups in Internet connection in the last couple of days but for the most part its pretty consistent.

Are we having solar flares?

13. Yes, as can a router going bad.

I just had to replace my router and when I did my speeds jumped dramatically. It went from 19 mbps download to 35+ and 2.8 mbps upload to over 6. I bought the Netgear N600 Dual Band router.

I'm getting ready to buy a new modem just so I can quit paying rent to Comcast.

What is their suggestion about a new modem?

19. Then, it sounds like

either the modem is going bad or your Internet provider signal is screwed up. They aren't admitting to a problem on their end?

Did they have you reboot the modem by unplugging it, waiting 30 seconds and plugging it back in?

20. Well, that sucks.

Even Comcast does better than that.

Wish I could offer more help. The only thing I can suggest, if they didn't already, is to uplug the modem from electrical power. Unplug it from your computer and restart your computer. Wait about 30 seconds and plug it back in. That has worked for me in the past.
