(Please ignore the time, most of the time my modem thinks its 1970).

This particular event happened at approximately 11pm and then continued as demonstrated above.

Anyone else having similar problems?

Found it.

Wacked the BT servers in as the DNS servers and it's instantly better.

Explain that plus.net. Maybe it's contention, maybe it's my exchange, maybe it's my configs or maybe, just maybe you have a problem that you never ever fix.

DNS Problem

Didn't think that I generally had a DNS problem.
Just tried the BT DNS servers in preference to +net's.
It is like someone has just turbo-charged my browser.
Can't believe the difference it has made to browsing speed.

DNS Problem

In my case I just ran the wizard on our Small Business Server 2003 to alter the DNS servers that it refers to. Depending on how you connect to the Internet either change the settings in your router (if you connect that way). Or open up your Network Connections, select the network connector you use to connect to the Internet, select properties then Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). Enter the BT DNS servers in the "Use the following DNS Servers" fields. This assumes you are running Windows XP. I'm sure other users will post if you are running anything different.
