On the past few days, my DSL connection was in sluggish mode. Maybe due to severe weather and the snow. Sometimes, it took a while to load up a whole page, and sometimes, I just don't get connection at all. Also, maybe majority of people stay home, and they are using their internet connection the same time, it flood the server network. Today, I get up early in the morning to surf the web, it is running smoothly though. I hope it will getting better.

hi, if the weather is rainy or something windy, it will really affect my dsl connection, because the wire going to my connection will moved by the air or rain.

Well,as for internet connection, maybe here i have met more problems than you. Because we are located in a remote place, the signal is transfered from other places. So we have experienced lots of connection problems. Of course, the weather influences the connection so often. When it is rainy, snowy, strong windy, all of these can affect the connection.

yes weather do have effect on wireless connections, but it also depends on lot of other factors. Sometimes too much internet activity on the LAN you are connected also results in slower connections. In the mornings many people often don't use the connection. so it results is high data transfer.

Weather usually affects Internet connection. That is if you're wirelessly connecting. Wind and temperature may affect the signal for the Internet. :-)
