WIFI Internet speed is slow down after upgrading to Windows 10

Question: WIFI Internet speed is slow down after upgrading to Windows 10

I have upgraded my OS from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After the installation the internet speed is slow down like a dial in connection (it is slow down if I am using wifi connection and it is fine if I am using a cable/wired connection). It is taking long time to load the web page (like google, gmail etc) and it is not streaming any video from youtube/netflix. I spend one day for fixing this issue but don't know how to fix this.
Please help me to how to fix this issue ( increase the internet speed using wifi connection)? or how I will revert back to Windows 8.1?

Thanks

Hi All,
The slow internet connectivity using through the wifi is resolved. I update all the device software from the device manager (especially network card - Realtek) and after that I am able stream the video and it is fast now.

My Sony Vaio laptop is experiencing slow internet speed even though the signal level shows as excellent. This is only when using it upstairs, where it is normally used. In the same room as the router it is fine. This has only just starting happening and it was OK anywhere in the house until a couple of days ago. To make it even more confusing my wife's notebook and my iphone work fine on the network in the bedroom. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I connect my PC to my router using a wifi dongle (I wish I could use Ethernet but it's just not practical). My router is a D-Link Wireless AC1900, my dongle is an Asus USB-AC56. They connect strongly, usually at 585Mbps. My incoming internet connection is passed through from the modem to the router. The modem isn't broadcasting a Wifi signal. My internet is a fibre connection provided by talktalk.

When testing with Speedtest, my iPad, mobile phone, Macbook and other devices typically see down speeds of 40-60Mbps and up speeds of 15-19Mbps, which is roughly what they should. (I mean, I'm paying for 80Mbps, but whatever.) My PC will occasionally get the same, but very often the download is erratic and slow, something like 1-5Mbps, and I don't know how to rectify it. (The upload isn't a problem, so what I'm usually getting is an up speed that's 4-15x my down speed.)

The problem doesn't seem to be with the router or modem, given that my other devices are getting good speeds, and it doesn't help to troubleshoot through Windows because as far as my PC's concerned, it's getting an internet connection, it doesn't care about the speed, so it doesn't suggest any solution.

I have tried various combinations of restarting the computer, unplugging the dongle, restarting AND unplugging, and every once in a while after being plugged back in it starts to reach the 40-60Mbps range, but there's no consistency to it. (And I'm scared to turn the computer off because if I do it'll probably lose... Read more

Hello,
I have been having extremely high ping in online games like BF1 and Titanfall 2 (>500 with spikes to over 1000, pretty much unplayable), and slow WiFi speeds. I have already updated my wireless drivers and disabled location and automatic updates. Speedtest.net shows a ping of around 40 ms, and download speeds of about 7-10 Mb/s. Wired connections are a little less than 10 times as fast for downloads, and significantly lower ping. Doing a speedtest on my Galaxy S6 gives 12 ms ping and 35 Mb/s downloads. I have done a speedtest on my windows 10 laptop with the same WiFi dongle as my desktop, as well as the built in card, with very similar results. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Answer:Windows 10 slow WiFi speed, high ping in games

First thing I would do is run the DSL Reports speed/bufferbloat test and post your bufferbloat test result back here.

Could it be that the game is overtaxing your GPU or CPU and that is the cause of the issue? I'd try dialing back your settings and see if that helps.

Next, I'd do a diagnostic boot with msconfig to load minimum services only and run the game again to see if that helps.

Hey Guys!!! I have updated my G50-70 to Creators Update - Windows 10 Home Single Language x64 and ever since i have updated i noticed that my wifi speed has been very slow on my connection which is 90Mbps.When i open the status of Wifi it shows the link speed of 54Mbps and am getting around only 20Mbps Download and Upload Speed.So i did reset of my modem and re-installed the drivers and when i restarted and once again i viewed the status of my Wifi, it shows the link speed of 150Mbps and i got a full speed of my broadband plan i.e 90Mbps Download and Upload Speed.But at the end of the day, mostly i will put my lap on sleep mode and when i turn my lap back, it shows wifi is disconnected and when i try to connect it says can't connect to this network and finally i forget that wifi and again connected but again my link speed has been reset to 54Mbps and now am again getting 20Mbps Download and Upload Speed.sFianlly i tried to update the drivers using Driverpack Solution and IOBit driver installer and i got the link speed of 72Mbps which gives 55Mbps of Download and Upload speed but soon after the restarting of my lap, it reset again to 54Mbps of link speed.I don't know which one is causing problems to my WIFI Driver. Please anyone help me to get rid of this issue!!! Thank you!!

Ok guys, I really need some help handling this. I recently upgraded my mom's computer from vista 32 to windows 7. She has a dell XPS. The network card is Broadcom 802.11g and is connected to the router by wireless. The internet was working fine until I upgraded.

So the main problem is that the internet is sooooo slow. Not just a little slower but old dial up slow. With most things timing out. I read online and it said I should try to log on in safe mode with networking and see if it changes the speed. The internet runs great when in safe mode. I have been on another forum and try as well and we still can't figure it out, so I thought I would try to reach more people by coming to this forum.

Hi,I've recently started using Windows 7, and the internet speed is painfully slow, it maxes out at about 70 kb/s. I've been on this connection for a few years now, and have 3 XP computers hooked up to it that get normal (900 kb/s) speeds as always.My Windows 7 is a pretty clean installation, apart from Office and a few other standard things it's not been clogged up with a lot of programs. I have read many threads about this issue on other sites and whirlpool, and I have tried everything suggested, but the speed is as slow as ever, both with wireless on and turned off (the Win 7 is the PC connected to the modem).

Hi guys,

2 Days ago I upgraded my PC and moved from XP to Windows 7 Enterprise x64. Everything was going smooth as butter, untill it was moment to use my internet. When I try to download something I get 50-60kb/s dl speed, 100 at max, while in XP my normal dl speed was around 5mb/s. I've installed all the newest drivers for absolutely everything, changed 3 lan cards, including the integrated on my motherboard, and all do the same stuff. My internet is super slow and I get disconnected every 5 or so minutes. I'm with a broadband (PPPoE) connection. I've heard there is a possibility my motherboard is faulty, because they were some mobos wich have problems with W7. My setup is this:

Asus M4N68T AM3 Motherboard wich on the box claims its "Windows 7 Ready"
AMD Athlon II X2 255 3.1GHz AM3 Dual Core Processor
2x2GB A-Data DDR3 1600G Memory Kit

Answer:Very slow internet speed in Windows 7

Hi,
How have you obtained Enterprise?

I had this on ubuntu, it had very slow internet speed and dropped out on heavy internet usage. I am going to guess its the Ethernet card. It may be the fact your on enterprise.

I would be careful saying you have a business copy of Windows on forums like these.

'Enterprise software, also known as enterprise application software (EAS), is software used in organizations, such as in a business or government,[1] as opposed to software chosen by individuals' Wikipedia

I recently upgraded from W7 to W10 on my W7 laptop. The install went well, no problems to report.

Since then my broadband speed has suffered badly. I've just tested the speed - the download speed is 1.6mbps and upload speed 0.29mbps.

It's not just my laptop suffering, we have four Android devices that are also crawling.

Are you using a wifi connection? This could be caused by a bad wifi driver. So perhaps try installing the Windows 8.1 driver from the manufacturer's website.

I apologize in advance for this being a long post.

After trying many fix options, I decided to try a forum. I have internet through Xfinity. My internet plan is supposed to be hitting speeds of up to 200mbps (megaBITS not megaBYTES), yet on their official speed test site, my speed is at about 95mbps at its peak. I even bought a new cable modem, since I heard xfinity has speed throttles that slow down your speed on their modems they provide you with. So, I had a technician come to my house, he saw me run the speed test on my laptop. IMMEDIATELY afterwards, I watched him run a speed test on his laptop from the same website, and his speed clocked in at about 186mbps. In BOTH cases, on BOTH laptops, the internet connection was WIRED ETHERNET, and NOT wireless, and BOTH our laptops were hooked into my cable modem, and the speed tests were not running simultaneously. Difference was, he was running windows 7 on his laptop. I am running windows 10 home edition. He told me he has had 4 internet speed complaints in a month, and they were all from people who ran windows 10. He concluded it was an issue with my laptop or windows 10 itself.

Answer:Slow internet speed from windows 10. Tried many fix options.

I just did a "slow internet" troubleshoot on a machine in which the culprit turned out to be Windows Update.
Not your issue, I know; but in troubleshooting there were a couple of other maneuvers I tried that you might want to throw in:

Go to network applet under PC SETTINGS and choose to "reset" the ethernet connection. This appears to automate a whole lot of stuff that you could do individually using explicit commands - then reboot.Go to Device Manager, find your network adaptor, and tell it to search online for an updated driver; then reboot.Go to the ASUS support web site and download their most recent drivers for your Ethernet adaptor (Atheros, RealTek, etc). Delete your current network adaptor using Device Manager, install the Asus official drivers, and reboot.

Hey, recently my internet connection speed has gotten really slow for some unknown reason. It only affects this one computer I'm currently typing from, my two other computers are working completely normal. This one is a Windows XP SP3 machine, other two are Debian Linux and Windows XP SP2.

Soon after upgrading to SP3 I've noticed that I can't download anything from the internet very fast. Let's say I take a random file somewhere and try downloading it on all the three machines (not at the same time of course), my other Windows machine and Linux machine both get a good speed, let's say 500 kB/s for now. This SP3 machine is only getting like 80 kB/s though and from some servers it's even worse. The maximum I'm getting from youtube for example is around 20 kB/s while I can get around 300 kB/s with my two other computers. My internet connection speed should be 10M/10M but it's usually more like 5/5, that's not the point anyways.

I'm not 100% sure if it's SP3 causing the problems but I've tried with different browsers (Opera, Firefox, even IE) and it doesn't seem to depend on that. I don't want to upgrade my other windows computer to SP3 yet if it'll cause this same problem on that computer too.

I have no idea if you'll need logs from programs like Hijackthis and the likes but I'll include a HJT log just in case it's needed. Also, my system should be virusfree. I'm using up-to-d... Read more

Answer:Slow connection speed (after upgrading to SP3?)

Sorry for double posting, but I wasn't able to find an edit button.

I did some further tests and noticed that I can download one file at only 200 kB/s BUT I can download multiple different files (even from the same server) all at 200 kB/s but a single dl will hardly go faster. So the total I can download is indeed the total of my connection (seemed to be around 800 kB/s at the moment) but for a single file the maximum with this SP3 machine is only 200 kB/s.

On my linux machine I can download even one file really fast from the same server though. (In my case I'm using ftp.funet.fi/dev/ for testing)

Maybe this has to do with my windows machine only making one connection for one file while my linux machine makes multiple? Or something, I don't know but it seems weird.

I recently built a new rig. I installed Windows 10 on the M.2 SSD, and installed Windows 7 on a separate SSD. Install went fine, installed all the board drivers and activated this copy of Win7.

The trouble: As soon as I try to download a file, the internet connection speed drops to nothing. I can browse the internet just fine. At first, I thought it was a problem with the Intel network adapter, so I purchased a USB wireless adapter, installed it, and, the problem persists.

I tried running speedtest, and the speed starts out fine, right where it should be, but within 15 seconds or so, it drops to nothing.

Literally, ANY file I try to download starts downloading fine, and then nothing.

I've turned off Windows firewall. I've tried running in safe mode with networking. I've uninstalled my virus protection all together.

Initially windows 10 was running fine until suddenly (I'm using Chrome) errors such as "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET" started occurring, while periodically the wifi kept disconnecting . After searching for and following some solutions this issue was fixed however now the internet is very slow. Admittedly I'm not technically adept at all however I believe something I changed may have made the wifi slow. I did the following things:
- Cleared chrome's cache
- Changed the DNS to google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 (which I am currently using) from the default (IPv4)
- Tried to update network adapter drivers (said there were no new versions when using the 'automatic search')
- Used cmd to run commands such as "ipconfig /flushdns"
- Tried performing a clean boot
- Also followed these instructions (http*://wind8apps.com/fix-error-code-dns_probe_finished_no_internet-windows-8-windows-10/ without the * )
- And maybe some other things that I can't remember
If this problem can't be resolved I'll just have to go back to windows 8.1, the internet is unbearably slow and I can't use ethernet instead of wifi.
Any help is appreciated, thank you.

Question: Slow Wifi Speed

Hi,

I have one of these wireless cards Asus WL-138g v2 and I have it running on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit the card stays connected but is painfully slow when downloading and using the internet. I have tried a collection of different drivers removed anti virus software, disabled all start up items and services but this does not solve the issue. The only thing I have found so far that does solve this problem is to boot into safe mode and then it works fine and is not slow at all. Anyone have any ideas on what might cause this issue?

THanks

Answer:Slow Wifi Speed

As always check to make sure you have the most up to date driver from Asus. Also check and/or disable any software firewall that may be negatively affecting the connection.

Another thought that comes to mind is... what are you connecting to with this wifi card? Is this your own network, or? What is the signal strength of this connection? Screenshots may be helpful here.

Question: slow WiFi Speed

Hey,

my wifi seems very slow under Windows 8 and is acting like its been "capped" by something.

When running Windows 7, I was getting approx 60MB actually download rate off of my apparent 120MB Virgin Media service, now that I am on Windows 8 it appears to be running at 20MB.

The drivers have been updated to the one that was on the manufacturers website, before the update was applied my download was capped at 1MB.

Does something need changing / tweaking on Windows 8 to make it more friendly to high speed broadband?

Hey guys, just trying to figure out if I need a new router or if I'm doing something wrong. I have an issue rtn12 and it won't do over 30mbps over WiFi which is really annoying since I pay for 75/15 internet. Just wondering if anyone could help. If you guys need any info about the router setting I'll be more than happy to provide them.
 

Answer:Slow WiFi speed on rtn 12

Make sure the device you are testing with has a wireless N or newer radio. Wireless G maxes out at 54MBPS with full signal.
Confirm your PC/Laptop/device is negotiating a link speed above 75MBPS. Try standing directly next to the router for all testing to rule out signal penetration issues.
Retest with a different device to rule out your test device as the issue.
Make sure the router is set to broadcast wifi at its highest speed, (300mbps for your model) some allow you to only broadcast at lower speeds for compatibility. Some wireless routers also revert back to a lower speed when legacy wireless B/G devices are connected. May have to disable support for the legacy speeds.
Update your router to the latest firmware to rule out firmware bug, retest
Try disabling all QoS policies on the router, retest. I've seen stock QoS settings adversely affect speeds on the entire device.


That should help narrow down the issue.

I bought early july a IdeaPad U310 in Texas, and then I moved to Belgium to study. The wifi speed was awefullt slow. So having read the forums, i rang the support in Belgium, and after long discussion, i sent the laptop for repair. Service was fine, but extremely slow, with no information what so ever of where the pc was, if it was received for reparation... anyway, three weeks after, so that today. i received it back and, according to the intervention report, the wireless controler was replaced. The thing is, the problem ofthe U310 is not a defectuous part, it is something more fundamental. I tested the PC in various speed test website.I have three laptop, a Lenovo W520, a HP Mini 110, and the IdeaPad U310.I used speedtest.net and brosdbandspeedchecker.co.ukthe result areLenovo W520: Download: 19.64 Mbps Upload: 1.99 MbpsHP Mini 110: Download:15.72 Mbps Upload: 1.28 MbpsIdeaPad U310: Download 4.75 Mbps Upload:2.1 Mbps. Now, the speed on U310 is not that catastrophic (not like the 0.3 Mbps I was getting) but still not great and rather much slower than the two other machines, and not fast enough to watch a movie in streaming, it pauses all the time. So what should i do? Send it again?  But is there a fix to the problem? Because keeping changing the wifi controller as they did did not fix the PC. The MEDION Repair center, which is in charge to repair Lenovo for northern europe (i guess) stated as well that the test "#winstress#" as been done. What is it? Yes... Read more

I have vodafone 3g connection in my phone. When I connection it to Windows Xp PC through wifi connection speed is very poor. 54kbps. How to increase speed and i can benefit of 3G connection.

Answer:Slow wireless speed via wifi

You seem to be misunderstanding the technology involved. For one thing, you do not connect your mobile phone to your PC for internet access, you connect it to your wireless router.You only get 3G through your cellphone network (and only then if it's available at your location). You can't get 3G through your home wi-fi, that's a different thing altogether.I've no idea what your home broadband speed is supposed to be, contact your broadband provider.

Hello. We have a Compaq Presario 2100 with WiFi 802.11 b,g that is downstairs. For internet it uses our Verizon Fios upstairs through WiFi. The Verizon Fios has download speeds of 24 MB/sec when it is hooked up by wire, and about 10 MB/sec through Wifi upstairs on the Compaq and 13 MB/sec on a newer laptop. But downstairs unfortunately is a different story. On the Compaq Presario 2100 a speed test ranges from 3.5 to 5 MB/sec. But I think it is sporadic. It might be higher depending on random time.

What can I do to increase the speed downstairs? Running a wire downstairs would be difficult, and so would be changing the location of the computer. I'm not sure about this, but I thought perhaps there is a WiFi router of some kind that I can put downstairs that can get significantly better signal strength from my Verizon Fios router upstairs. That way I can hook up the Compaq Presario by wire to the 2nd router downstairs. Will that work? If so what kind of router should I get?
 

Answer:Slow speed through WiFi, Need Advice

Is your current wifi thru a Verizon provided unit or a router connected to your Verizon FIOS modem (or whatever they use, don't have FIOS so I don't know)?

If your current wireless is G, going to an N router has been shown to provide a stronger, more consistent signal to G clients.

You can also get a G router and set it up as an access point downstairs and that may provide a more consistent signal to your downstairs client.

Answer:Lenovo G505s wifi slow afrter upgrading to SSD

hi Tomas985
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to check, when you open Device Manager > Network Adapters > Atheros AR956x (properties) > Driver Tab, have you tried comparing the wireless driver version from the old HDD to the new one?  
 
If the drivers are different (it will help if you can list them here) try to re-install the Wireless Driver from the lenovo website or from the D:\Drivers\WLAN folder (old HDD) and ensure that the driver version is:
 
Atheros v10.0.0.242 (Windows 8)
Atheros v10.0.0.263 (Windows 8.1).
 
If the drivers are the same and you have installed a firewall or security software (eg. Norton, Mcafee, AVG Security Suite, Zone Alarm, etc.), try to temporarily disable or uninstall them and observe.
 
Alternatively, try also these drivers:
- win8-v10.0.0.287-whql.zip
- Win8x64_6.30.95.29_WHQL.exe
 
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

I have un-installed and re-installed my Linksys E1200 wireless N300 router several times, and can only achieve about .5 MBPS d/l and ~6.0 MBPS u/l data speeds, on a 3 year old HP laptop, running Windows 7. This is wireless service, and the laptop is within 4 feet of the router. I have Comcast service on my desktop, and my "connected" normal d/l speed is ~30 MBPS, with ~5 MBPS u/l. Don't know what else to do. I have connected the laptop directly to the modem, and get 30 MBPS speed, so there is something I'm missing in the wireless router setup.

I recently decided to setup my hardware I bought few months ago.
I decided to get rid of the wifi router I was using(wndr3700v1) and setup a Uniquiti EdgeRouter lite and an open mesh AP(mr1750). I decided to use my wifi router as a temp switch only until I got a new switch. So I reset the wifi router,setup the AP and router and tested the speed and it went dropped to about 1/3 of the speeds I was getting with the wifi router. I tested the speed via Ethernet directly with the edgerouter and the temp switch and the speeds were great about 230mbps. I tried rebooting everything but that didn't help. I then tried to reconfigure the wifi router to also use the wifi part of it to see if my open mesh AP was at fault but no the wifi router speeds were also down.
I'm not sure what is the issue and would like some recommendations on how to troubleshoot this issue.
I know my wifi speeds won't match my wired speeds but I was consistently getting about 170-190mbps on 5ghz wifi and it's now down to 30-50mbps

I made a thread before trying to resolve this problem, I only figured out yesterday that if i switch to my onboard graphics, my wifi works fine. However on linux I can use my dedicated gpu and have no issues, it only occurs on windows, anyone know whats going on?

Answer:Gpu causing wifi to be slow and drop in speed?

Hi losingmymind

While I can't explain at a technical level why linux drivers work and Windows doesn't, I have to believe it is the electrical interference being generated by your graphics card. There was a thread where a members wifi wouldn't work when it was installed near his 10TB hdd. As soon as he got separation it worked.

I don't believe he posted back solution but suggestion was to create separation. Move the HDD to another location in case, route cables as far away as possible from hdd etc. I know moving a graphic card is really not an option but can you reroute any cabling associated with Wifi. As well can you get separation from GPU with antenna location.

Installation worked fine and Windows 8 booted - on my next day to office, I realized that it does not work properly with my Office Mobile Wifi Router. On first I thought something's wrong with router, however it's working fine with other devices, tablet and phone, just like the previous day hence realized this is some driver issue with wifi adapter driver on my laptop. Following is brief information about my machine details and what I tried. Kindly provide me help asap. i3 machine with 6GB RAMLenovo Thinkpad Edge E420Wireless LAN - Broadcom 2x2 11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN PCI Express Half Mini Card Adapter The Wifi is working fine with my home wifi network (ADSL2+ Broadband) but just the mobile wifi router. Through some forum I thought I should revert back to Lenovo provided drivers "however everytime I try to uninstall driver or disable wifi adapter, it gives PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA blue screen error and restarts computer" I believe it has something to do with improper wifi settings during Windows 8 Installation but could not figure out what to do. Any help would be greately appreciated...!!!

Answer:Wifi adaptor not working with mobile wifi device after upgrading to Windows 8 Pro

Hi, ritmehta
 
I think you're on the right track with the wireless settings, since the router works for everything else connected to it. And to hopefully stop the occurrence of the error and associated blue screen, I would recommend trying to boot into Safe Mode with Networking. This should allow you to be able to uninstall the device without the computer going into a blue screen. 
 
To enter Safe Mode, either restart your computer or start from a cold boot. Begin tapping F8 repeatedly at the splash screen and continue tapping it until you see a menu appear. There should be several options. Select Safe Mode with Networking. This will boot your machine only using the core drivers and devices, as well as the network ones. 
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

Hi all.
I recently purchased a Toshiba Satellite C50-A02-V running Windows 8 Home Edition.

I've never really had the fastest internet, but its always been alright for what I used it for... untill i purchased this computer. Suffice it to say the internet is... a little below sub par.
Heres a speedtest...

My phone, My sisters Laptop running windows 7, even my old 2006 IBM running Linux all are getting speedtests with Download speeds of at least 5-6Mbps from the same router, with at least 5-6Mbps.
And yet here I am, brand new computer in hand, with memories of dialup floating through my head.

I've been on message boards trying to find an answer to this for hours. I've changed the Wireless settings to not turn off the Wifi. I've checked Toshiba's Website and downloaded the latest WLAN driver. I deleted literally every last ounce of bloatware from the computer when I got it, so I don't THINK that's an issue. There's no torrents or security running either.

Basicaly I have no idea what to do.

Now the weird thing is if I turn the computer on, and do a speedtest right away, I'm getting a fast Ping and a download of 5 Mbps instead of the 0.6...

Any Help or ideas on what to do?

Answer:Impossibly Slow Wifi Speed, Brand New Computer.

Did you try an ethernet cable instead of wireless? If that works normally, read on...

I had a problem like this many years ago, it turned out to be something wrong with the drivers for the network card I was using. To fix it, go into device manager and find the entry for the wireless network adapter (eg "xyz wireless network adapter"). Right click on the adapter and select "remove". Reboot the machine. It should detect the adapter as new hardware and reinstall the drivers for the network hardware. Of course you may need to supply the drivers at this point if they are not available on the machine.

This is somewhat techy and if you are not a level 2 nerd you may want to get a qualified friend to help...

Really slow upload and download speeds from MY laptop only.My fiance's laptop had a DL speed of 18Mps, and I don't remember the UL, but it was much better than mine. Screenshot to follow...
Internet will drop out while I still show connectivity to the router and then seconds later the router signal will drop out completely
Just now my signal dropped out and from my laptop which is sitting three feet from my fiance's laptop. Hers has internet just fine...
What I have tried so far:

Changed Routers
Changed broadcast channel on both routers
Updated the driver for my wireless network adapter

Here is our problem, and solution, I hope it helps some of you!  PROBLEM: We got a new router, BT Smart Hub (upgraded from a BT Home Hub), and my Dad's computer a Lenova G505 suddeny would not connect to the internet. All other devices connected fine. His laptop got a 5 bar signal to the 2.4ghz network but when opening an internet page, it would not work. It did not pick up the 5ghz network at all, all oher devices did.  SOLUTION: Firstly we updated the drivers from the Lenovo website to ensure we were all up to date.

I have a new IdeaPad Y500 which I just got out of the box yesterday. I love the performance so far, except that the download speed when connected to Wifi is abysmal. When connected to the network via ethernet I get the same performance as I get from my desktops (connected via ethernet cable) and from my other/older laptops (connected via Wifi). The other machines get around 20 Mbps download and 2 1/4 Mbps upload. My new IdeaPad gets this when connected via ethernet cable. However when connected via Wifi it gets 1 Mbps download, yet still about 2.25 upload. As I stated, I have other laptops running on the same WiFi network and they get 20x the download speed. I have never had a visitor with a laptop have problems with the Wifi. Any ideas as what the problem could be? Thanks in advance.

Answer:Very slow download speed from wifi on new IdeaPad Y500 (95412SU)

hi kiwiarse,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Community.
 
If you're WLAN is the Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230 wireless card, this might be due some security settings on your router as discussed here. What you can try is:
 
On the router:
1. Disable WPS & WMM
2. Disable packet bursting or similar feature
3. Configure the the Wireless Security to use WPA or WPA2-PSK
4. Enable QoS
 
On the Wireless Card
4. Update your Intel® Centrino® Wireless-N 2230 driver here or here
5. Set the 802.11n Channel Width for band 2.4 to Auto (this is option is under Device Manager > right click on the Intel Centrino 2230 card & choose Properties > choose Advanced)
 
 
Hope this helps.

Hi all,

My Belkin N300 wireless router is now experiencing intermittent slow Internet speed. The router is 2 years old and has worked perfectly until last week.

Here are the troubleshooting steps I completed.

Internet speed test when directly plugged into the wireless router and cable modem: 30mbps
Internet speed using laptop wifi: 2 mbps then sometimes works at normal speed
Called ISP and they verified there was a connectivity to cable modem issue. Did a power cycle for modem and router. Then got full 30mbps from cable modem to ISP using direct connect to laptop.
tested other devices such as laptops and tablets, all experiencing intermittent slow speed
when experiencing slow wifi, switched to direct connect ethernet cable to router and got immediate full 30mpbs

So far all my testing is pointing to the Belkin router's wifi connectivity. I will check on the router's firmware since it has never been updated.
I also found a thread online suggesting disabling QOS on the router. But this should not be needed as it was working fine for two years since its purchase.

Any suggestions to what else I can do to resolve this issue?

Hi,

I have a ASUS N550JK-DS71T laptop which has about half the download speed with wifi compared to a similar laptop (with a N-type wireless card) right next to it. So this issue is not due to ISP or router. Upload speed is fine.
I used speedtest.net.
Laptop has the INTEL AC 7260 wireless card with the latest driver on Asus website (V17.0.1.5).
I checked the power settings and they are on High Performance.
I have a N-router set to N.

Would you know any settings in BIOS, Windows, INTEL to check/change to fix this.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

Answer:ASUS N550JK-DS71T - slow download speed with wifi

That is a dual-band adapter in the laptop. From the sound of it you have a 2.4Ghz single-band router. Try turning off the 5GHz band on the laptop adapter if there is an option to do so.

Also, there are newer drivers dated August for that adapter on the Intel site: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sea...14&ProdId=3714

Hello,

I have a high-speed Internet connection at home (100/10). The main computer is connected through an Ethernet cable off a cable-modem, and both the download and upload speeds are excellent, just as the ISP claims it to be.

Then, the afore-mentioned cable-modem is linked to my 300Mbps TP-Link WR1043ND router so that I can get Wi-Fi on my iPhone 5... I have been running several Internet speed tests, and the download speed just won't go any higher than 40Mbps. Upload speed is perfectly fine.

Gone through some tutorials and then all the settings on the router and everything is fine... Plus the iPhone 5 is designed for Wi-Fi ultra-high speeds (well over 100Mbps).

Am I missing something? How come I cannot get any more speed? When I do the tests, the phone is just centimetres away from the router so there's no walls, objects or anything that may slow things down by over 60% as it is the case.

What can I do? Is there any possibilities of getting at least 80% of the maximum speed?

Answer:Home WiFi Internet Speed

This really isn't a Windows 8 issue , you will need to ask in the TP-Link support area/forums to see how you can change your wifi channels etc to maximise your throughput.

I can say that under normal use you will never get 300 Mbs using wifi , the network overheads and more will reduce that to 180-200Mbs maximum , 300 is a very idealised figure.

As for iPhone 5 , I do remember there were issues with wifi speeds , binarytoad details the issue here iPhone 5 Slow Wifi Fix (workaround) - YouTube

Hello.  I purchased a Lenovo Z500 laptop on black friday but I have some doubts with the capabilities of this PC. I suppose I have Intel Centrino Wireless N2230 and some random ethernet card. I tried my wifi speed yesterday night, it gave me 99 Mbps, so I thought it was limited to 100. Today I researched a bit on this just to find out that this peticular intel wifi is supposed to work at max 300 Mbps. I have intel i7 QM inside, 8 Gb of RAM on 1600 Mhz, so there is no other explanation for my slow internet connection. Please help me...

Answer:z500 internet speed on WiFi/LAN

Actual WiFi speeds is usually 1/2 of the connection speed shown by Windows. This is due to many factors: http://compnetworking.about.com/cs/wireless/f/wirelessspeed.htm Therefore on a 300 Mbit Wlan, you should max out at around 150 Mbps of data transfer throughput on a perfect RF conditions (lab / ideal environment with no RF interference). 100 Mbps actual throughput is normal at real world environments.

Hi!
As the title explains, I have a 40k Mbit/s connection, which my father's and sister's laptop get as advertised, but my pc gets speeds that vary from 2k-15k Mbits/s. Although, when I connect to the internet via ethernet cable the speed is as advertised, around 30k-40k. So I replaced the wifi adapter usb, but that did nothing, so I ran malware tests, even though nod32 did end up removing a MyStartSearch browser malware, internet speed is still slow. My dad also reset and reconfigured the router's setting but to no avail. I'm all out of ideas at this point, what to do next?
I also checked for any programs that might interfere or limit my internet speed in any way but found none. I should also mention that between malwarebytes and nod32 ive perhaps removed the same MyStartSearch malware 5 times already.
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Answer:Wifi speed is inexplicably slow, other pc's unaffected, with ethernet cable fine

I've removed the startsearch malware before and after i got the rly bad internet, it doesn't really seem to be related to it tho.

Hello all. Here is my set up. I have 1.5M internet service coming into my CradlePoint CTR35 wireless router. The two devices I have are my desktop, and an iPad. When doing a speed test at speedtest.net, I find that my desktop running windows 7 gets about 1.45, and my iPad is only pulling 1.36M. I realize that isn't a big deal, but why would there be a varience between the devices? Shouldn't they be able to test out the same?
 

Answer:WIFI internet speed varience between devices

The Operating System parameter settings that determine data transfer rates are slightly different on the two machines. Differences between computers on the same LAN are normal.

With many older OS's and probably the one on your iPad these values are permanently set in the registry. They are just general values that will usually give a good data rate. Sometimes these values can be changed to improve the flow.

Starting with Vista and Windows 7, the OS actually monitored the data flow and could change some of the values to improve it.

I have two XP desktops, a Vista desktop and a Vista laptop. All will show slightly different results on speed tests to the same server.

The two XP's have the same values for all their changable settings, but one always tests about 0.04 M higher than the other.

Guys at the forum,
here are the specs of my home wifi connection.

Main desktop PC: Core 2 Duo 3GHz, 4GB RAM running Win XP SP3.
Old Dell Latitude C810: Win XP SP3, 1133MHz, 256MB RAM.

The Dell is using a PCMCIA WiFi card given by a friend in the office.
It is a Linksys Wireless G notebook adapter. supporting 802.11b/g.
the Main PC has a Gigabyte GN-A11G Access Point connected via a network cable.

The Problem:
both connect smoothly, and there is nobody who uses a pc in our area, so wifi has no security. there is no 3rd party involved.
but i copy files over network and all i get is speed less than 1Mb.
the range of the two PCs are merely 10 feet. and the connection is "G".
I have everything in default, but nothing works to speed up.
Also i tried with my dad's HP Compaq nx6320, and the speed rose up to 1.5Mbps. That is the maximum achieved.

Problem #2:
The Dell Pc has a dial up connection. and i used the sharing feature to share it through the network. and it goes good. But the desktop PC doesn't access the internet. It just stays connected.
Also have to mention, I'm using ZoneAlarm 8 Free Firewall. I also have given the device to trusted. But still I can't seem to access the internet from the main PC. little stuck up in there.
My main problem is on Question #1, it is ok if #2 is not answered.

Thanks to all who reply.
Regards,
Timothy.

Just recently started to notice the speed of my connection has greatly slowed down! I am on a desktop PC that is using a linksys wireless USB adapter to connect to my router. I looked at the speed and it was like 18mbps when it used to be like 54mbps. Now my laptop on the other hand if i have it right where i have the same desktop pc connects to the router and receives a speed of 54mbps. Whats going on here? why did my desktop pc suddenly get slower? Its prolly just a coincidence but right after I installed frostwire it seemed like thats when it got slower. (no frostwire isnt running and thats not why it seems like my connection is slower). But there isnt really a way that an application could cause my actual connection speed to slow down is there? The only thing that i can think of is that my linksys wireless usb adapter is going bad or something? does anyone have any ideas, or suggestions on what is going on here??

My network is like this. 3G router connected on LAN of TP-Link Wireless router.
3G router | TP-Link Wifi
Wifi Disabled | Wifi Enabled
DHCP ON | DHCP OFF

I am using TP-Link because i needed more LAN ports as 3G router is having only one.
Now I have 2 laptops, connected to TP-Link wireless router. I am getting same bandwidth of around 1Mbps from my 3G internet connection that is download+upload speed of around 130KBps, wether the USB is connected directly to laptop or to the 3G router. But if I transfer between shared folders on my 2 laptops, speed that i get is never more than 56KBps that is around 450Kbps.

I have cjhecked with Inssider there is no signal interference by any other wifi nearby. Also i have tested using open security of wifi, tried changing between 128bit & 40-56bit encryption sharing setting on both systems & disabled all antivirus & firewall on both. There is no change in speed. Wifi is in the same room no more the 5 meters away, mode is N and 40MHz bandwidth setting.

I can't understand how the speed i get from my internet connection is faster than my local laptops. Also the specified bandwidth is 300Mbs that is 37.MBps, and i don't even get 1MBps.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

I'd try fiddling with the router's wireless mode setting - usually on Mixed mode. Experiment - Set it to N (if available) or G/N or G. You may also fiddle with your Wi-Fi adapter's setting if available.

I purchased an HP entertainment laptop (windows vista os) about a year ago and I started experiencing problems with my speed a couple of months ago.

Most recently, I've experienced the following:

1. Slower speed surfing the net
2. Slow to open up an Internet Window (about 8 seconds)
3. Can not browse internet at the same time that an anti virus program is turned on (to monitor). Has occured with Norton and Trend Micro.
4. Can no longer access I-Tunes store or Rhapsody store when I open the applications.
5. You Tube videos are stop and go instead of running fluidly.

All of this is new behavior for my laptop...

Any ideas on what may be happening or what I should try to do next? I downloaded hijackthis, so I have that software program on my computer.

For instance I'll be browsing Yahoo fine for a couple minutes, but then I'll try to open another tab to do a Google search and the browser will stall for about a minute before loading that page. Or I could click a link on a webpage and the browser will stall and show a blank white page for a minute. Loading the content on a webpage usually takes close to the normal amount of time, it just stalls before hand. It doesn't happen every time I click something, but it happens often enough to be a nuisance. 
 
Last night I went under settings and did "Referesh your PC" which is supposed to restore defaults and delete installed apps, but the problem is still here.
 
EDIT--
 
Here's an example: Everything usually stalls at the same time but not always. Just now, Gmail stalled for 2 minutes but I was still able to open a new tab and complete a Google search. However, when I tried opening a new tab and going to Gmail that way, that tab stalled too.

Answer:Internet Broswers are Slow but Internet Speed is Fast

I get that too sometimes, it is clearly caused by your computer (and in my case my computer) not your connection. I have ti with chrome but not IE, because i never open IE to check it. I have windos 8 so we have similar experiences in several respects. Mine haven't been as bad as yours lasting only 30 seconds or so at worst. I think this is due to large processes running in task manager and hogging memory/processor capacity. The only things i can advise is to: see if there are any large processes running under the details tab of task manager which should not be running, scan with your antivirus and with malwarebytes (there is a free version)to check that the cause isn't a virus of some sort, see if any startup items can be safely disabled (this can be done from a feature within the program CCleaner from piriform) and try clearing your temp files (CCleaner can also do this) and browsing history along with deleting any junk you have in the recycle bin and deleting old files you no longer need/uninstalling old programs you no longer need. When using CCleaner be VERY CAREFUL not to disable startup items without first verifying they are safe to stop (check google) and NEVER use it's registry tools (anything that attempts to "clean" the registry can damage your system). One other thing that might help you is disbaling add-ons in the browser and making plugins "clcik to play" rather than running automatically, doing this will mean there is less content to load so loading will be fas...

I've been battling this particular issue for a couple of weeks now without much success. I have a custom built desktop where my WIFI connection will deteriorate to the point where internet (and gaming over Steam, etc...) will be either painfully slow or unable to load pages at all. Windows claims throughout that I am connected to my WIFI network with internet access and good signal, even when I cannot reach any internet pages.

This problem has happened at 2 different locations (on different WIFI networks), and with 3 different WIFI adapters (TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 PCI, TRENDnet TEW-684UB USB, Edimax EW-7811Un). At both locations, I have another laptop and a phone that can connect to the WIFI network just fine. I even got a couple of the adapters to work fine on the laptop without the issue.

I've found that disabling NetBIOS seems to temporarily improve matters (I'd read elsewhere that that can cause issues), but it has not resolved the problem. Also: I'm getting DNS errors in the Windows 7 event logs:

"Name resolution for the name XXXX timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded."

ipconfig results are posted below. Images of Xirrus (1) and its connection test (3) are attached. Any help is very much appreciated!

Usually internet speed is low since i start the laptop but i find a better speed after maximizing the use of energy of the wireless card. The problem is saving this maximization setting, because everytime i shutdown the laptop or even closing Explorer the configuration turns back to the "minimizing" position !!! I tried to solve it by using the energy management application but i wasn't able to find any setting for the use of the wireless card. Wireless device / properties/ Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN >>> Configuration >>> Advanced >> Property: energy administration and then a horizontal bar on the side, from minimum to maximum. Any help? Please ... Alfonso (Sevilla, Spain)

Hi,

I have a problem with slow internet speed. If I play a video clip on youtube for example, the video will play for a few seconds, then it will freeze for a few seconds, then play again for a few seconds then freeze again for a few seconds etc etc

This happens with almost every video i try to play. It happens with whichever website i goto to play a video clip.

I'm currently using internet explorer as my browser.

I recently went to the library to play the same video clips there, and the video clips were playing continously without freezing.

I think my download speed is 8mb, which should be fine i think

Answer:slow internet speed with internet explorer

Tools\internet option\advance then click on reset and restart your browser.Also you can use google chrome browser instead.

Two XP PCs connected by NICs & Ethernet cables direct to to US Robotics ADSL 4-port router.All was well with a 2MB ADSL line via Plusnet. A few months ago speeds started to drop (from a usual 200kb/sec) to less than 50kb/sec. I amd now down to 20kb/sec almost all the time. This applies to both PCs.PLusnet have been useless with standard responses like "have you run anti-virus and anti-spyware checks (yes to both (McAfee, Adaware Plus Spybot S&D) - nothing) do you have any other internet applications running (no - have checked with Windows task manager), run the BT speedtest" - I can connect to the test site but CANNOT run the test(I have now tried on 6 seperate occasions at different times) the test response always is "Test error, system busy try again shortly but if problem persists raise with your service provider". It has got to the stage where I can only just connect to the internet. Latest router driver has been installed (no change) and all other drivers are up to date.Any clues please?

Answer:Very slow internet speed

This will bump you up if nothing else.How far are you from the exchange. I would say that the farther you are outside a 4km radius will result in gradual line loss esp. as more and more people take up BB. I dont know if BT provide such a service but you could contact them to run a test at your home. It could be that the exchange is getting over capacity. I'm sure some other members will have some suggestions.

Are you by chance using "homegroup" for networking in win 7? Homegroup sometimes on mixed networks causes slow downs and disconnects.

You can check it for yourself by setting up a new network connection using workgroup instead. If the problem goes away you can dis-able IPv6, and kill homegroup.
Let us know if you need help with this

I've been having this problem for a while now, ever since I started using Windows Vista I've had a low internet download speed (not the amount that I'm paying for). I know this isn't a problem with my ISP because on my other computer that has Windows XP, the internet connection is just fine.
I've tried the following tutorials:
Auto Tuning - TCP/IP receive level
QoS Bandwidth Reserve Limit
Neither of them have resolved my problem.
My download speed is the only problem, the upload speed is "normal".
I'm paying for 8Mbps but I get 0.5-2Mbps on my Vista system.
I have my modem directly connected to my computer, through one of the two Ethernet ports on my computer. This problem has been going on for months now and I'm really getting frustrated with it.

Morris, welcome to the Vista x64 Forums

I've been doing some reading about your issue. There is some discussion about potential solutions.

1. If you're running any AV software, disable it, specifically Norton or Symantec.

2. Depending on your adapter, you may have to either update to the newest driver, or roll back to an older version.

Check on these potential issues and let us know if either of them help your situation. If not, we can continue to examine the issue, just let us know what your AV software is and what kind of adapter and router you are using.
