Ok, going to need more information to be helpful here.
So much was clear.
Ugh.. i hoped for something quick to check that is likely to cause the slowdown. (because it PROBABLY is not the cable and stuff) - i checked - it is not the cable
Internet is stuttering and pages aren't building fast. (I can play Wow with little trouble, besides sometimes being completely unable to do 25 man raids)
Both laptop and tabletop are plugged to the same router. On the laptop i'm using windows 7 and on the tabletop xp, because i don't have a Windows 7 CD or something. Should be up to date, at least i update everytime it says so.
It looks, like it is somekind of malware, or somehow software bound from my gut feeling.
I use AVG Anti Virus and Zone Alarm Firewall. (...) and spybot
Mostly i use IE, sometimes Firefox (but, i DID read the sticky and it says, it usually isn't really the browser)
Since i am already on it, i lost or buried the driver CD for my mainboard and reinstalled the system somewhen in the past. Do You know, how i can figure out, what kind of mainboard i have, and/or where i can download the drivers. Best would be something that fetches the drivers by itself.
Obviously checking the cable isn't a bad idea per se, i got the cable plugged to a network 'ethernet' card or something that should be superfluid, but the port on the mainboard doesn't work it seems. maybe i should remove the card and see if it is that, but i really was looking for a quick fix, because some mysterious force prevents me from properly keeping my computer neat and tidy, so it's just about clear. (don't ask)
Schanks for the reply so far.
