Data Shaping and Ebay

Does anyone know if the traffic shaping affect Ebay viewing? I have Broadband Home Lite and recently I've noticed huge delays trying to view some pages, particularly any that begin with cgi.ebay. I've done a like for like with my neighbour who uses BT and found that the same pages load much quicker on his setup. Anyone else found a slowdown?

Data Shaping and Ebay

Hi,

If anything the traffic shaping would improve web browsing as that's what it's designed to protect.
One thing that might be worth a check is your MTU. I'd try setting the MTU to 1430 and RWIN as 13900 (for 512), 27800 (for 1Mbps), or 57600 (for 2Mbps).
