Default Really slow broadband

Hi about 2 days ago my coonection started to get really slow. When I first turn on my computer I do a test and it says it's running at 1700 even though i'm supposed to have 2300. Within about half an hour it goes right down to just a couple of hundred. Can someone please help.

call your ISP and see whats going onh, could be spy/addware in your pc or a problem on the router/modem or just the ISP jacking you around.

Do you have Comcast? I frequently have problems with them even though they have been out to fix it numerous times. Sometimes it helps to power-cycle the modem.

My provider is tiscali, I have done all the checks that they advise and they have told me that the line is ok. Could there be something wrong with my computer, if so how can I check. I've run norton antivirus which has come back fine.
