hi guys ive been with aol for years now and i havnt had any problems until i decided to upgrade to the 8mb speed from old speed, now its been a month and a half since i got them to upgrade the line and all im getting is the same download and upload speed of my old connection, with the exception of at nights when im able to play games like tf2 and css but when it comes to watching things on youtube its slower than a crawl

Go to aa speed test server and post logs taken at various times. I noticed I was getting slowdowns and disconnects but never twigged they were always first thing in the morning and then I realised they were always just before 8:30 am.

It turned out that running my AV (AVG) was causing the snafu. My speeds are pretty good most other times but I never do much but visit forums and watch the occasional music vid.
