Thank you again for taking the trouble to help. I am following your 
advice and searching via Google, perhaps I might find the answer there. 
I would prefer not to use a wire connection but I will, if that is the 
only way to get what I want.

My broadband is supplied by wireless because the other means of supply 
available is too slow. So, I get anything from about 5 Mbps to 10 Mbps 
download with an upload of about 5 Mbps. I have just checked with 
speedtest and the average of 3 readings gave 7.68 Mbps download and 5.01 

It would seem that the problem I am trying to troubleshoot may be caused 
by the interlink between computer and router and has nothing to do with 
broadband speed.
