Where is my bandwidth being throttled from?

Postby MrWoggle » Thu Jul 21, 2011 10:26 pm

Hello everyone.I am not sure where to put this, so I am sorry if its not in the right section...

Anyhow,over the past month, something or someone has been throttling all my bandwidth. Like getting through 21 GB a week, when I have been the only person using it, and know it wasnt I. I have run AV (Avast),Spybot,TDSKiller,Hijack This, and my computer is clean..

I am really really confused. Its a Phillips wireless router and its WEP protected so it cannot be a neighbour.I ran ARP -A on CMD and it came up with a lot of random MAC addresses. I now really dont understand.

Any ideas would be massively appreciated as this is getting expensive!!

I look forward to your response

First thing I would try is to disable wireless and see if that helps. If not, see who else is physically connected to the router. Other than that, you would need to analyze the network traffic leaving your PC just to make sure no rogue programs are running.
