Internet Speed slow, wired or wireless?

    The speed of my connection to the internet seems to have dropped dramatically in the past couple of weeks.

    At home I have BT Broadband running at 2Mbps which is wired, and is running really terribly. At the moment i'm at my girlfriends house, using her wireless running off AOL Platinum at 2Mbps, which is giving awful performance. This has been going on for a little while. Quite interestingly most of the problems have arisen since I installed the new Microsoft Genuine Advantage Validation piece of software a couple of weeks ago.

    Anyone got any ideas? I'm in cornwall by the way if that helps at all?
