I'm currently trying to work out how to get remote control vista to work whoever whilst delving into the router settings i found the qos page see below. I was supprised to see that http was set at low priority along with everything except ftp. I changed it to high and saved the settings and now my web is faster with pages loading much quicker. The help says that in low priority status the router will give the protocol only 1% of b.width in high it's upto 60%. Now to make my day even more interesting I need the gas man to actually fix the boiler on the 20th attempt and my £400 Currys whatever happens insurance vouchers to arrive so i buy that LCD tv i've been longing for. One good thing a day though is a start.
