Re: [Cable] Slow/fluctuating speeds in Montreal
From the sounds of it, it sounds like there may be something locally within your computer. You may just need to run the "universal fix everything" commands to be able to resolve the problem.
To do this, open a command prompt window (requires an elevated command prompt in Windows Vista and Windows 7). If you need to elevate it, when you click start, then type CMD, press the LEFT CTRL and LEFT SHIFT keys at the same time, then click the cmd.exe icon while holding these keys, or while holding the keys, press ENTER.
Once that's been done, use the following commands:
1) ipconfig /release
2) ipconfig /flushdns
3) netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt
4) netsh winsock reset resetlog.txt
When done, simply reboot your PC for the changes to take effect. If you're suffering from the common Windows issue that I think you are, you should notice these problems simply vanish before your eyes after rebooting.
I guess I'll try that out.
I would hope that works well for windows 7, but I'm not sure if it would work for mac because I actually tend to use the windows partition on it more. At any rate I'm sure it might be something with the lines as well. I'm thankful for your help.
If anyone else has any other solutions that may potentially work I'd be grateful for other potential repairs for this. If not, then I guess it's something with TSI or the videotron lines.
