    Internet question

    I just got a new computer and for the last several days, playing video has been terrible. Lots of cutting out and buffering.

    Is there anywhere I can go to see if my internet service (Mediacom in West Des Moines) has been spotty or if it is my computer.

    Re: Internet question

    Many Routers have the connection speed listed on their interface. (ex:192.168.1.1)

    That will tell you what you and your ISP are connected at. It will be in KBPS most likely

    1024KBPS=1MBPS
