I can’t say for certain, but I think that Service Pack 2 for XP has made my internet connection dodgy. For a couple of weeks now I’ve been wrestling with intermittent connection and slowdown and the like. The two things that could possibly be responsible are a) XP SP2 or b) NTL’s broadband speed increase that they implemented about a month ago. But to be honest, I can’t see a speed increase making my internet connection slow down! I’ll have to research this SP2 problem a bit more – if I can make the damn internet work obviously!!
