    Lending the computer to your brother when this happened can only be coincidence unless he made some change like a firewall, settings, etc; ask him if he made any changes. Does the speed issue coincide with the speed increase? Is there a new modem that may have a firewall? Maybe check on the Rogers forum to see if this throttling was just brought into your area or if the speed increase includes throttling.

    Not really but I've heard this is good: http://distribution.openoffice.org/p2p/ About your modem, this is only a guess but go to start>run, type in cmd and select ok. Now type in ipconfig/all and write down the Default Gateway. Exit and type that in IE and see if that will give you access to your modem.

    Don't know why PG would help but hey, good enough. Look into that modem and also any throttling over at the Rogers forum.
