    So my internet speed is 1 Mbs and a few weeks back the speed has been great ive been getting 600 - 950+ Kpbs but all of a sudden my internet has become very slow from the last 3 days and i am not downloading any torrents or files i know of. Ive tried doing everything , turning the router off and on , plugin and unplugging the ports and nothing seems to have worked but the weird thing is that when i am downloading a torrent my speed goes up to 900+kbs but when i am downloading a file from my browser i only get 5 kbs and also i changed the buffer speed in windows media player from recommended to 15 secs , could that be the problem??
    Does any one know whats wrong with my internet speed and know how to fix this?

    Just do the test, and see what kind of speed you get there.

    Well you're still getting 900+kb/sec with torrents, so it could be the server where you are downloading the file from. If you're webbrowsing is not affected either, it's the server.

    Has anyone NOT considered the fact that he may be capped?

    Pretty obvious?

    Then I've got to agree with Evo.lve on this one. You're probably capped.

    When you've gone over your data limit set by your provider, they'll reduce your speed or you need to pay extra.

    If you are using dial up then you might want to upgrade to a low end ADSL.
