Slow WiFi speed on rtn 12

Question: Slow WiFi speed on rtn 12

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.

Preferred Solution: Slow WiFi speed on rtn 12

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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.

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?

Cheers

How are you measuring your speed?

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.

I have an Inspiron 15 3000 Series. When I first bought it, my condo complex installed AT&T wireless with speed of approx. 100 Mg., which I got on this computer.
However, in my other residence, with Verizon Fios internet, I get 9.45Mbps Download Speed and 22.66 Mbps Upload Speed.

I cant use ethernet because my cable is not long enough

But nothing seems to help at all! I have even tried to switch the wireless adapter with my brother but that didn't help either. So can someone please help/guide me through this? Because I cant play my games or stream youtube....hell even web browsing takes forever to load now.

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.

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.

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 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.

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

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...

Max distance from router in which I can receive a signal is about 15 ft
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
Virus Scan
Malwarebytes Full Scan
Xirrus Wifi Inspector run. Screenshot to follow
Removed Windows' ability to shut off my network adapter to save energy
This problem occurred for the first time one week ago today. I have been getting by since then, but the hassle is getting to me.

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

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?

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.

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

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!
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.

Last week I have purchased a WD 2TB Green Drive as well as a non-raid capable raid card Rosewill RC-212; since my older PC (WinXP32, Celeron D, 1GB RAM) does not have SATA ports. I have installed fresh drivers form Rosewills? website even though they are not needed for non-raid configurations. The PC recognized the card right away as well as the HDD. The write speeds are as expected, however the read speeds are between 300KB and 2500KB. I cannot figure out why the read speeds do not exceed 2.5MB? I have plugged the HDD as an external drive via USB and the read/write speeds are as expected. Anyone knows why and how to fix it?

Update:
I have tried 1TB WD green drive (1.5-year old) and it works as expected.

Update 2:
I have just spoken with Rosewill tech and he said that using PCI card and such a large drive it is expected to be slow. Personally I believe it is B.S. You?

P.S. for moderators: I have similar thread under storage and networking, but it no longer applies as such issue. Please delete it.
 

Answer:My 2TB WD Green has fast write speed but slow read speed

The Rosewill card's transfer rate is "up to 1.5GB/s." The WD hard drive's is 3.0Gb/s. Perhaps if you set the jumper on the 5-6 pins to activate the 1.5GB/s rate per this instruction: Western Digital.

Hi.

I have this very annoying problem and I'm really out of hopes. I don't know what to do anymore. I'll make a summary of the problem and will be as concise as possible

So I have this Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop with a broadband connection (direct cable, no router) and 3 weeks ago I reinstalled my Windows. Everything went well until 2 weeks ago when the internet speed went down, dial-up like. Pages won't load, and if they do they load just partially. I called my ISP and they said they had no problem. I couldn't find any solution so I thought maybe, some sort of virus or spyware is doing this so I formated the whole hard-disk and did a clean install of Windows.

Unfortunatelly nothing changed, the download speed is the same. Here is a speedtest.net evaluation:

http://www.speedtest.net/result/2276053238.png

Drivers are up to date, no windows firewall, no antivirus and no windows update. The ISP support guy told me to deactivate IPv4 and IPv6 from Local Area Connection, but nothing changed. I did a TCP/IP reset which raised my down speed to almost 1 Mb, but after a few minutes it went back to "dial-up". With the down speed being the same, Speedtest sometimes shows me upload speed in between 50-70 Mb which is unbelievable (I will make a ss next time I see this).

And the very weird thing is that I have another netbook (pretty weak config, Intel Atom CPU, 2 GB RAM) and with the same cable it has normal speed (the kind of speed I had on this Dell too). An... Read more

Hi guys. I hope you can help on this issue I've been having with my internet connection, I don't know what to do...

I resently formatted my harddrive because my internet all of a sudden started being very slow but after the format it's still the same issue. Now I've tried plugging the connection line into my laptop and there there's no problem.

I am gettin' a slower download than upload...

I have a 10mb download/1 upload speed LAN connection. I ran a speed test on the same connection and on my stationary it shows like 250 kbs download and like 750 kbs upload, while on my laptop it shows like 8 Mbs download and 750 kbs upload... so what's the problem?

So far I've found out that it has nothing to do with the internet connection line or my NIC (I tried a brand new one and it was the same issue), it's not spyware or malware, it's not fragmented and under internet connections it says that I'm connected on a 100 Mb network card and there are no problems with any of the devices?

However I can see that if I open the job list, the download connection is very unstable going from up to 750 kb for a breif moment then falls to a halt at 0 kb... and moreover it says that I'm not using any percent of the network?

I'm on windows 7 and haven't had any problems before this, the rest of the system works just fine, but not the internet. If I try and download something it won't get higher than like 50 kb and then may... Read more

Recently moved house and had installed my internet today, the exact same setup.

Right now the only difference with this setup is that the router is plugged into my laptop, and if anything, it's closer to my computer than it was in the previous house.

My problem is that it randomly goes slow for short periods of time, or in games it lags like crazy. For example while watching youtube it'll shoot up the loading bar fast and then all of a sudden stop, and go really slowly, then back into fast speed over and over.

What can I do to resolve this?

Answer:Slow speed, fast speed, slow speed.

Go to speedtest.net and see what your download and upload speeds are. Watching a youtube video will use less bandwidth than a game would.

You could also do a tracert to google.com to see if there are any high response times.

Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months.

Answer:fast download speed but browseing speed slow.

Hi, welcome to this forum!

Please visit this site to measure the real speed of the connection. When done please post the results here.
Internet providers (who gives you the internet) usually make an offer of x speed internet but they only guarantee you to get much less. So the speed might change up and down sometimes. If the internet is still very slow please read the details of your agreement with the internet provider. But first give us the speed results from that site

hey, im shopping for RAM and was wondering if i could use high speed RAM on my not-so-high-speed computer. By this i mean that, my computer can support PC2700 RAM, so, would i be able to buy like a PC3700 RAM and use it on my computer (knowing the fact that its performance will be downgraded because my motherboard isnt made for PC3700). The reason/s for this is because, at Frys(www.outpost.com), ive found that some higher speed RAMs are cheaper than PC2700s, allso, im planning on buying a new motherboard in the future(with of course higher performance), and want my RAM to be living to its full potential when i get it, without having to buy new RAM again. Thanks alot

Hi,I need some help, I have Tiscali Broadband up to 8mb speed, my netgear router shows a download speed of, 8027kbps, and if I plug the SAGEM usb modem in direct i get a reading of 6.7mbs, neither of which are bad.... However, all my pc's (3) when doing speed tests on line are giving me a download speed from 43.1 to 160 kbps. One Pc runs Zonealarm the other AVG, the windows firewall is off, and if I turn the virus software off I get no speed improvement. 2pc are running windows XP pro and 1 windows XP 64? any ideas, this has been going on for about a week.Thanks

Answer:Broadband Router Speed OK, PC Speed SLOW????

See what the BT Speedtester reports your profle as click here If your profile is incorrect that could be limiting your download speed.Post back with the results.

hello.

i have cable internet that is connected to a belkin wireless router. one computer gets slow internet access when connected to this. multiple other computers get better speed. the one affected computer gets fast speeds when accessing the internet at other locations, like a friend's house. also, the affected computer gets fast speeds when connected to the router by a cable.

so the problem seems to be very specific to the connection between these specific devices.

the laptop in question is a thinkpad e420 running windows 7.

thank you in advance for any solutions or suggestions you might have.

Recently my pc has been acting up. On start up i get missing .dll error messages, alot of pop ups and my upload speed is really slow. Download speed is 9700 kbps but my upload speed is only 20kbps.

I tried ad-aware to remove bad files but that did not do anything.

Below is my HijackThis log
Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Slow upload speed, missing .dll files, slow start up

Welcome to Major Geeks!


Please follow the instructions in the READ & RUN ME FIRST link given futher down and attach the requested logs when you finish these instructions.
If you have problems where no tools seem to run, please try following the steps given in the below and then continue on no matter what you find. You only need to try the TDSSserv steps if having problems getting scans in the Read & Run Me First.

TDSSserv Non-Plug & Play Driver Disable

If something does not run, write down the info to explain to us later but keep on going.
Do not assume that because one step does not work that they all will not.
READ & RUN ME FIRST. Malware Removal Guide


Helpful Notes:

If you run into problems trying to run the READ & RUN ME or any of the scans in normal boot mode. You can run steps in safe boot mode but make sure you tell us what you did later when you post logs. See the below if you do not know how to boot in safe mode:
Starting your computer in Safe mode

If you have problems downloading on the problem PC, download the tools and the manual updates for SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes and Spybot ( links are given in the READ & RUN ME) onto another PC and then burn to a CD. Then copy them to the problem PC. You will have to skip getting updates if (and only if) your internet connection does not work. Yes you could use a flash drive too but flash drives are writeable and infections can spread to them.

Few days ago, Suddenly My Windows XP started operating very slow. I uninstalled some program such as : AVG PC TUNEUP to reduce the load on the system. I also checked my Task Manager for pointing out memory eating processes but found none. My CPU Usage was dribbling around 0% to 3%. But PFUsage was near 788MB. Then I started searching for virus. Scanned with AVG, Avast, Zemana, Hitman PRO, Antimalwarebytes several times.
When they didn't solve the problem I gave a repair installation of my system to see what happens. It fixed the problem. But started again after some moment. I gave the repair installation once again and its running smoothly now.
I did some search over net and found out this problem can be connected to my harddrive. I scanned my Harddrive with HDDScan, Crystal Disk Info. They both showed error for

Answer:B450 USB SPEED SLOW OR ERRATIC - SOMETIMES SLOW SOMETIMES FAST?

SOLVED !  or rather a workaround was suggested by LENOVO TECH SUPPORT - a brilliant idea - Run in SAFE MODE, do the file transfers as per normal - I found the speed was consistently faster at about 25MB/s using the same sync program. It would seem some process running in normal mode is interfering with USB file transfer speeds.  Could be antivirus checking files on the fly or something else - weird **bleep** huh - Anyhoo, I will be doing big file transfers in safe mode in future.  Thanks Lenovo support! cheers,Ray

Why is the upload speed so slow on my Onedrive?

Question: Wifi Speed

Hi Guys,
Have an issue with my internet speed, I am currently subscribed with an ISP for 60Mb/s Connection and I can only get that speed via cable over wifi it goes down to 26Mb/s, after I called my ISP they told me I had to buy some other wifi device that extendes my signal and is able to transmit more then 26MB/s so I bought a NetGear EX6100 Wifi Range Extender and set it up as an access point on the 5GHz channel it is currently connected via cable with the ISP Router but still im only getting 26Mb/s.
Im stuck what did I do wrong ???
 

Answer:Wifi Speed

My cable service plan is for 150 Mbps download.

I get 150 - 170 Mbps on ethernet and 30 - 50 Mbps on wireless.

I've tweaked my wireless connection as much as I can and still get the much slower speed.

It's still fast enough for my needs, so I've learned to live with it.

Question: Low wifi speed

Hello. Like a lot of similar threads here, I am experiencing slow wifi speed on 1 out of 4 laptops. I have a Virginmedia wireless n Superhub (UK all in one modem/router) set at 144.4 mbps and my tariff is for 20mbps download speed. 3 laptops experience no problems at all; 1 wireless g connects at 54mbps, 1 wireless n connects at 72mbps, another wireless n connects at 144.4mbps. These connection speeds are consistent and do not fluctuate. All 3 have consistent speedtests of 20mbps download and 1mbps upload.
The 1 remaining laptop has fluctuating connection speeds of anywhere between 10-65mbps and a speedtest of between 1-4mbps. This laptop is my wife's work from home machine - Lenovo Thinkpad with an Intel wifi Link 5100agn adapter. Office is situated one floor up from the router and phone socket. We have a wireless phone jack so no cabling is run directly to the office. I thought this may be giving off interference but I disconnected it and still got the same wifi results. I have used all 3 working laptops in the office and have experienced no change in connection speeds/speedtest so am assuming that the issue is not interference. I haven't yet hardwired the laptop or tried to update the driver. Just wanted to run this by you first before I make any changes.
Thanks in advance for any advice.

Question: WiFi Speed

I have just read the sticky about WiFi performance. It recommended using the website "Speedtest.net". I have done this and I have my results; however, it doesn't say whether the performance was poor, average, good, etc. How do I know how my WiFi router compares if it doesn't say what the results mean. If any one knows what is a good or poor performance I give my results below:

Ping: 37 ms
Download speed: 5.46 Mbps
Upload speed: 0.69 Mbps
 

Answer:WiFi Speed

See the line with the "B+" grade just below the download speed and just above the ISP name followed by the stars?

That gives you an indication of how that particular speed test stands. It really depends on what level(tier) service you are paying for.

You need to make several tests at different times of the day and to different servers to get a good idea of what level of performance your actually getting.

Greetings,
so basically am having this problem when i connect to any modem by wifi the speed literally dsnt reach 1MB but when i connect ethernet it reaches over 50 MB i really need help like i cant use my laptop anywhere near my house only when am next to my modem by ethernet.
every other laptop connects fine both wirless and wired!
should i format my computer?
maybe my wifi adapter?
and my wifi adapter is up to date.

Answer:Wifi SPEED IS BAD PLEASE HELP!

You don't say which version of windows you are using (I assume it is windows). If it is XP do you have SP2? If it is an older laptop it may be g instead of n. If so you may be able to improve the speed by getting a usb n adapter.

I just bought HP 250 G4 N0y44es notebook and I have major problems with it. First I barely installed drivers for graphic card AMD R5 M330 (i have to use outdated drivers now), and now i have problem with wifi drivers. I am using windows 7 ultimate x64.I installed newest drivers first (Broadcom 802.11b/g/n WLAN Driver for Windows 7 (American, International) ). Download speed in my Utorrent client was 30-40 kb/s.  It ocassionaly jumped on 700-800 kb/s (where I want it to be all the time) but it only lasted for minute or two. Usually, on my PC is aprox 900 kb/s. After that, I installed older version of that driver (6.223.215.3 Rev.B25 May 2015), and the same thing happens. And my signal of WiFi is always full, because I sit 2 meters from router so there is no problem with my WiFi adapter. Also I tried probably all solutions i found on your site overhere.   No one answered me in my last post so im posting the same question again.

Our LAN connection runs about 94 mbps down / 96 up... our WIFI runs about 11 mbps down / 13 up.... Given there's a wall or two between "the hub".

It's a steel building, there's nobody running off the WIFI except people with cell phones. I installed a TS Link WIFI Extender outside the walls in the shop (which receives 3-4 bars). There's manual mills, lathes, and CNC equipment in the shop, as well as a shop computer for clocking in/out and a MSC vendor that are LAN connected. Pretty much all that connects to the WIFI are cell phones and the shop laptop.

Is it simply the interference on 2.4 GHz in the shop that muddles the signal, the wall's in between, or is there anything I can do to get it up to at least 50% loss in data? Here's my setup...

my laptop speed was downloading files at speed of mb/s,but now  its kb/s even on fast internet.the laptop is i3it also cannot signal wifi

Answer:speed,wifi

Hi: Your notebook is not supported by HP for W7 32 bit. The only suggestion I can offer regarding the ethernet, would be to install the latest ethernet driver directly from Realtek. Download, unzip and run the setup application from the 2nd file at the link below. http://www.realtek.com.tw/Downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=7&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTy... What model wireless network adapter does your notebook have? I'll find you the best W7 driver for the model wireless card it has.

My LAN speed is usually around 5100 via my SpeedTouch router ST585v6. When I am using my Laptop, an HP Pavilion dv6 running Windows 7 with an AMD quad Core cpu, not the fastest of computers!, I seem to get WIFi speeds as low as 1700 whilst at other times can get 5000.
The Router is only about 6 feet away from the Laptop! Is the speed drop a "computer problem" or a router one? If I connect the Laptop to the LAN the speed will always be at about 5100. My desktop computer is connected to the LAN and has a speed of 5100.
I have the usual security set on the Router.
Does anyone have any thoughts?

Answer:Low WiFi speed on my Laptop

I don't think there's anything wrong with your laptop. It's more likely to be a problem with wireless interference. If that's the case then changing the router's wireless channel number frequently works wonders so login to your router's admin interface and experiment with different channel numbers.

Question: limit wifi speed?

Hello,

I'm a huge network noob, I really don't know anything about it.

I was wondering if theres a program or something that I could use for my router to limit the bandwidth that it gives on wifi?

I currently have about a 20down/2up connection from time warner with a linksys E1200 router.

I just want to limit the wifi speeds to about 70% because recently someone moved in that does a lot of downloads and makes my games go from 40 ping to 300+ and also my phone is through the internet, which becomes unusable.

just some simple setting to set the max wifi data to 13megabits/s down 1mbit up or something. Is there something like this?

Thanks!
 

Answer:limit wifi speed?

1st you need to access your router. But, to check ip's. Start button, type in cmd "right click run as admin" inside the new window, type ipconfig/all hit enter. Look on the list for your "default gateway" IP now type that into your browser's top address bar: 192.168.xxx <--Example. under your router will have the default router admin/pass code that you need to enter to access your settings. look around in your settings, careful to not change too much as you can really mess things up. Set to wireless G mode if you can "it's a slower link speed for wireless", lower the power output down from 100% to say 50-70%. those are small suggestions for easing bandwidth on your network, you'll need to look up how to do QOS - quality of service if you want to allocate bandwith across fairly. qos settings differ on router to router if they even support it.

Hi,
My wifi connection between my PC and my router seems to be kind of slow as it reaches max around 50 Mbps. I'm not talking about my internet speed but about the speed between my PC and my router.

I have this setup
- Archer T4U USB 802.11 ac (drivers updated)
- USB 3
- Airport Extreme router 802.11 ac (5Ghz only)
- PC is about 3 meters away from the router without any walls or electronic devices in between
- All other equipment (MacBook, iPhone) do not have wifi speed issues. From the same point as the PC, I get much higher speeds (500Mbps)

What could be wrong?

My rig:

PCPartPicker part list: Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core, GeForce GTX 1070 8GB - System Build - PCPartPicker
CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-U12P SE2 54.4 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus Z170 PRO GAMING/AURA ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-2666 Memory

strong overlapping adjacent channels ?

The free inSSIDer 3.1.2.1 network analyser will tell you what you need to know about your local network and througput configuration including WIFI overcrowdinng ,overlapping and adjacent or co channel channel networks ,other newtorks (neiboors ) but outside of driver ,fiewall ,port configuration or HDWE problems .

Google search screenshot image not mine

FWIW -40-50-db like the blue channel in image and small overlaps should be fine depending on how strong and close to your channel the overlap channel or channels are ,co channels (stacks ) to a point usually arent a problem even though those may look much worse in SSIDer to a newbie :

I just moved into a big 4-bdrm house with some roommates, and the landlord wont let me string my cat5 across the house, so instead I was forced (against my will) to go out and purchase a wireless ethernet card for my desktop PC. The wireless router is in the living room, which is down the hall and slightly around the corner from my bedroom. There are approximately 4 walls and a microwave, and a bathroom between my wireless card and the router. I can connect to web pages on occasion and at a very slow rate, but I cannot for the life of me get a stable enough wifi flow to log into WoW. Please help me!!! I *need* my WoW!!!

Thanks in advance,
Stephanie
 

Answer:Boosting Wifi Speed?

Try talking to your roomates about getting some space rugs, and run the CAT 5 under the space rugs, behind your landlords back He probably wont notice it. Also

Try positioning your Router, and your PC in locations that minimize the interference of walls/microwaves/ etc...

P.S. Serasha....I thought you said your lanlord was moving out anyway?

This is the latest 801.11ac WiFi. I have a desktop with an external antenna mounted on the corner of my desk. About a foot away, I position my laptop so i can do file transfers. Sometimes I get more than 20 MB/sec. Other times, only 2+ MB/sec.

There is no metal or other object between the desktop antenna and the laptop. So, how do I fix this?

My new computer is fitted with a Realtek TRL8185 PCI WiFi card and connects to my Orange Livebox. The signal strength is showing as either very good or excellent but the speed shows as only 1 or 2 Mbps. My other computer which sits next to the new one shows low signal strength but has a speed of 18 or 24Mbps. Can anyone help with why the new machine has such a low transfer speed.

Answer:Very poor wifi speed

When I got a new d-link router it would only connect to the net at 750Kbs. I had to do a firmware upgrade then it ran at over 5Mbs, seems poor for a new device but it's worth getting the latest drives for everything.

I recently upgraded my VDSL speed to 40mbps down and 20mbps up. Since the upgrade my speed is only at about half. I am reading at about 19-20 mbps download. I had 20 down and 5 up prior to the upgrade. And always got full speed over WiFi.

I get my full speed over a ethernet cable. I have a actiontec V 1000 modem/router. or as Qwest calls it the Q 1000. It supports 802.11 N.
Its also dual band.

My laptop wireless card is a Realtek RTL8187B wireless 802.11 b/g 54mbps usb 2.0 network adapter.

I have tried changing the channel of my router. I also tried changing the power level of the radio signal. I also updated the driver.

I changed the channel of my realtek card as well. I am stumped. I also called my ISP tech support. They have no idea whats wrong. The person I spoke to thought 802.11 n was a model number.

If anyone knows what I can do to fix this, it would be much appreciated if you could help.
 

Answer:WiFi only half speed. Help.

Welcome to TSG!

Sorry to say that's all you'll get with 802.11 g. The 54Mbits/sec is the maximum physical layer bit rate. Actual throughput will be around 24 Mbits/sec Max.

Only way to "fix" it is to upgrade to 802.11 n.

I have an 802.11 n setup which connects at 130 Mbits/sec, but the Max throughput is around 60-65 Mbits/sec.

Android devices tell us what the current connected WiFi speed is. This is of interest as an extender has been installed and Android gives varying speeds, of which I would like to optimise, like by channel settings.

The W10 laptop seems not to give the instantaneous WiFi speed to help with router / extender channel selection. Is that right?

Thank you.

When my laptop is plugged in and charging using AC power my Internet speed tests read about 4 Mbps downloads and 1 Mbps upload. When I unplug the power cable my speeds are usually about 40 Mbps down and 6 Mbps up. I am not wired directly to the router. An aberration I guess.

Any idea what could cause this?
