    Moved house a few weeks ago and internet has started to go haywire.

    I checked out my connection to see how many bytes I was receiving/sent and I go this:



    Does my IPv6 connectivity have anything to do with this? Any ideas?

    Thanks people

    Don't see much point in hiding your SSID.

    Regarding the bytes received they're normal, as for the sent, well that's another story.

    Is this the only device on your network that is suffering from terrible internet?

    EDIT: I would like to take my time to congratulate you on your creative use of the windows utilities :thumbsup:

    The first thing I'd recommend is downloading Malwarebytes, CCleaner and running a scan on your system for potential malware, sometimes malware can cause this issue.

    If the results are clean, then one assumption is that possible windows updates are being fetched and therefore using a lot of traffic, they're known to do this. If this is the case you may want to install a firewall and configure it, see if there's any improvement, if no improvement

    Then I'd download TDIMon or Wireshark on the affected computer, these tools can be useful for inspecting TCP and UDP traffic on the computer.

    The first two suggestions are likely to be cause for all this haywire

    One final piece of advice, uninstall Norton, it's just a complete burden for any computer user. I'd suggest getting Avast, or even Panda Security.

    Seeding anything?

    Got fileshares on your LAN that people are using? That count includes all of your LAN-bound traffic, as well as the internet-bound traffic. :fyi:
