    right the prob is that i am running windows XP pro and my internet explorer seems slow at loading up webpages.

    i am on a network with my bros pc and his is alot faster btw i am the 1 with the cable connection and i am running ICS but when he is not on his pc and i am on mine mine is still really fast so jsut as a test i went on my bros and his was loading pages real fast

    Sounds like this could go into the networking forum not hardware.

    But anyways... how are you sharing the cable modem? through a router or do you have two nic's in your computer?

    with the patch or you paid for it.
    cause if you used the patch it could of faild and microsoft has gotten to you

    also have you got your modem pluged into the switch. or is it a router,
    if it is in the switch than your problem is with the switch

    it is best for you to buy another nic and put that in your computer
    that should solve all your properlems

    if not then it would be best to ring your isp company
    and ask them whats wrong ( unless u have bt )



    ps never plug cable modem adsl or ne type of broadband connection into a plain hub
