I get free internet but it is shared through a router with a neighbour (he's gone for 3 months, this is not a part of a problem). Internet is slow and glitchy. Some websites open fast, most open slow, some don't open at all. Sometimes I have to stare for 2 minutes at a blank screen and then all of a sudden it loads. So I log into the router and change some settings. Internet starts to fly, but as soon as I close the explorer window with router settings, it goes back to slow So now, I just always log into the router before browsing the internet and leave the window open. What the fuck is going on ? It seems like when I close the explorer, I lose the contant and steady connection to the router/cable modem.
