I have recently been experiencing a dramatic slowdown on the input (download) side of my modem. Sites such as www.dslreports.com which are normally very fast for me had slowed to a crawl. Using a tool such as LanSpeed I could see the brief upload packets, a few download packets, long pause, dribble of a few bytes, etc. I could find no fault with the landline, my modem, nor the ISPs equipment. In desperation, I used the time-honored method of un-installing the most recent application installed - in this case, MRU-Blaster. There was no initial change, but with a re-boot things came back to "normal". Am I imagining things, or could MRUB cause this? BTW, I always have a problem with this site in terms of speed - don't get me wrong, I am very grateful for the service; I just wonder what the problem is.
