Default Internet has gone crap since move to Orange.

Right basically mum has changed our net provider and house phone to Orange as its cheaper.

But since the move the net has gone crap, i use Firefox which has been great all along with the old provider (AOL) but since the swop (where the house number was also changed which took the piss) the net has run slower which i guessed it might being cheaper, but also it constantly doesnt want to load pages ( server not found )

Mostly pages like hotmail email, trying to sign in to ebay, paypal etc but then one day it will.

Also now firefox has been filled with bloodly yahoo instead of google (another site which fails to load ) does anyone have any helpful ideas or advice, im pretty crap when it comes to computers.

cheers

I had the sameproblem with a lower speed once moving to talk talk from Eclipse. Once the contract is up we're going back to Eclipse which provide double the mbps

Actually I think you made the right move away from AOL.

What results do you get from www.speedtest.net/

If you've ever run it on AOL how does it compare?

Server not found could be a software problem on your end/virus if it works intermittently so rule that out first.
