I'm getting slow, very slow, forbidden, slow again, fast, fast, fast, this site cannot be accessed, back on slow, OK, slow etc. for the last 4 days at least. Not moaning yet but just letting the powers that be know.

 :helpneededsign:why not check where your signal ios coming from as it leaves the NGF server and travels via a number of nodes to your PC. my access is slow tonight (150mb pipe)

Windows users can use traceroute  to do this -

Using Traceroute

Traceroute is a computer network diagnostic tool for displaying the route (path), and measuring transit delays, of packets across an Internet Protocol (IP) network. This section shows how to run Traceroute, and how to interpret the results.
Running Traceroute

To run the Traceroute utility, proceed as follows.

    Open a Windows Command Prompt window.
    At the command prompt, type, tracert ngaugeforum.co.uk

to examine the the domain name and extension that you would like to trace a route to).
It may take a few seconds to respond, but this command will give a traceroute from your computer to the destination you selected.

You can interrupt Traceroute at any time by holding down the CTRL key, and pressing C on your keyboard.

MAc users can use network utility App.(search with spotlight)

so your electrons travel a long way round!

if you have problems run traceroute and post the results here - it will help @Tank  decide where the problems may lie ( not necessarily at NGF Towers!
