He has had multiple threads going on in relation to this

I had replied to him in thread

As I asked about if he was using a router or USB modem.
It transpires that the OP is using a USB modem, so I would rather fancy that he has a problem with their hardware or their computer maybe running too many processes, causing latency and throughput issues.

It's also been explained about the benefits of using a router over a USB modem as it does not require processing power of the PC to run.

Whilst I'm not a moderator, can I please ask someone to lock this thread in favour of the link I have presented in this post as the topic is now so fragmented it is getting hard to follow.
