internet slow, great connection in house on other comps, just reformated, always slow

Question: internet slow, great connection in house on other comps, just reformated, always slow

Hi, My internet is very slow. I have a asus k8v-se deluxe motherboard, and im starting to think that its the onboard ethernet port thats slow. Im directlly conected to a linksys wireless n router( the fastest one out) and all the other computers in my house go pritty fast. I just reformated my hard drive and wiped my computer completely so i shouldnt have the same problem...... but do. So if someone anyone has any suggestions as to what i should do, shoot! or if you can finda link to a fast ethernet internal card that would be great. I want to use all of my router, its 12x the speed of G. so i wanna put that to the test......... please help me. thanks -Nick

Preferred Solution: internet slow, great connection in house on other comps, just reformated, always slow

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: internet slow, great connection in house on other comps, just reformated, always slow

When you say directly connected to your wireless router do you mean physically?

Hey guys, I have a WRT54G2 linksys router and all of a sudden on the 19th, it began to act really slow for my end when mine, my dad's and mom's computer were on. Usually before that during the summer and back, we could run all 3 and stream movies/videos with no latency issue or DL speed issue. Since the 19th, it had gotten my end to a slug speed with 200+ latency and less than 1mb DL speed. We're all running ethernet cables toward our comps. I have Cable internet(Optimum Online) which has a 15mb/s DL speed when I'm just speedtesting when my computer is the only one on during these past days. No viruses. When 1 gets shut down, the speed goes back up a bit to 2-3 mb/s and with only 10 latency. What the hell is the problem? Please help, guys!
 

Answer:Slow internet with a WRT54G2 linksys router connecting with 3 comps

What are you getting when running a speedtest at either Speakeasy.net/speedtest, or speedtest.net? Have you also tried rebooting the modem, router and all computers? Have you double checked with your provider or lord forbid, your parents to see if the ones who are paying the bills, may have lowered the speed to save money.

The later is a possibility, due to a lot of people are unable to afford higher speed plans these days, and want to be able to just retrieve their email, and check out news, that you can do with a below 6 mb plan (ie 1mb download).

So I wasn't quite sure where to put this so I'll try it here,
Recentl my gaming computer has become ridiculously slow with any internet related services, games constantly disconnecting, skype disconnecting, hell sometimes I can't even load websites when this happens and it is a constant problem at the moment and can barely load google.
I know its not my internet as my other devices have no problems laptop ect but I have noticed they start to lag a tiny bit (barely noticeable) but as soon as my gaming pc turns off everything goes back to normal. I have scanned everything with Norton 360 (which I have had since day one and never disabled) and even went to the hassle of getting malwarebytes just to double check it was safe. When i do speed test with my pc I'm getting 1mbs on other devices I am receiving 25+.
I have a Asus pce n15+ network adapter which could be a problem?
I've tried uninstalling and re installing drivers updating them ect. still no solution and now I'm lost.
Can anyone offer me any ideas of what to do thanks!?

Answer:One PC constantly slow connection other devices in house are fine

How is the gaming pc connected to the router?

Background Story
Okay guys, so i found out were moving house a few weeks ago into a rural area. I looked about the internet and guess what, it was slow, im talking about not even 1mbit fast. Since my step-dad works from home and im a verrry heavy downloader, we needed to find a alternative solution.

So Far..
I looked into satalite internet, its expensive and still slow for the prices. To expensive infact.

So, now were looking at 3G internet, which apprently our new neighbours have and they get pretty decent speeds (t-mobile). I have seen this -

Code:
[URL]http://www.t-mobile.co.uk/shop/mobile-broadband/mbb/[/URL]
The idea is that my step-dad and my mum have 1 to share, my brother and sister share one and i get one to myself. But, 3GB seems a little low for me, are there any other options do you think guys?

I suggested getting (as well as the mobile sticks) a cheap broadband which is landline based so i get just plonk my downloads on and let them download 24/7 until there done. But it would be still be slow.

So please guys, any help is greatly appriciated, this new house is awesome.. but the internet speeds are putting me off big time.

OTHER NOTES -
I found a awesome orange stick, but turns out the coverage would be pathetic in my area.

Willing to reward for help.

My internet is so painfully slow on my desktop computer. It works perfectly fine on all the other laptops/tablets in the house, (roughly 6-10mbps) whilst my desktop only gets 0.4mbps (sometimes less). It is so slow I cannot even load a webpage - it makes the desktop unusable. It has not always been this slow. I have ran a malware bytes scan and nothing came up. I did a factory reset, and it changed nothing. I have updated my wifi drivers.
My specs are:
CPU: AMD FM2 A8 6600K APU Quad Core CPU 3.9Ghz (turbo 4.2Ghz)
Motherboard: Gigabyte F2A68HM-HD2
Memory: 16GB DDR3 1600mhz Memory
Graphics Card:ATI 8570D APU Graphics
Hard Drives: 1TB Seagate Sata 7200RPM 6Gb/s Hard Drive
I have an ASUS USB N-10 150MBPS 11n Wireless USB Dongle.

Please tell me any information I need to include to fix this problem as it is driving me insane.
 

Answer:Wireless internet unbelievably slow on one computer in the house

I bought a Dell XPS L502X laptop 2 months ago, and it has constantly had troubles connecting to the internet and getting a fast speed. For example, on speedtest.net my laptop gets around 5 Mbps while my sisters and dads laptops get around 20 Mbps (i have tested many times, still the same result). Another problem is that on the screen, it shows my ISP as AT&T, even though i have Bell (soon to switch to rogers). It shows my location in the U.S, even though i live in Ontario, Canada. None of this happens on other laptops in my house.

I think i may know the problem, but i need help in fixing it. I play a game called minecraft, and to play with your friends you need to run a server. When i was installing it i remember having to change a ton of stuff, making my IP "Static" and other things. I do not have a restore point which can return me to factory conditions, and the nearest one is only a few days away..... Can you guys help me go back to when i got this laptop and return to fast speeds? I am 100% sure its my laptops fault as my dad's and sister's laptops have extremely fast internet speeds.

The title says it all. My connectivity is fine but the internet, mainly streaming audio/video is really slow. Ive posted before but havent received any advice. Everything is perfect in safe mode. How might I diagnose the problem?

Mike

Answer:Slow Internet - Works Great in Safe Mode

Typically...if the problem doesn't occur in safe mode, but does in normal...I would conclude that something that loads in normal mode is interfering with the connection.

That could be add-ons you have installed in your browser...malware...or such. I would start with disabling all browser add-ons that are not essential.

Hi all,
I have 2 computers, a Dell laptop and a Dell Desktop, they are recently new, have been working fine, they both have Vista. Just as of late last night the internet connections have been poor, either not connecting at all or slow. I have AVG 8.0 but it has not found any viruses....any help would be appreciated. thanks,
 

Answer:Solved: Internet connection slow, downloading slow

Hi Dano.
Are both pc's hardwired or one wireless through your router?
Are both slow at the same time?
Have you tried eliminating the router and hardwiring one pc directly through the modem.(will require a power on reset of the modem)?

Do a speed check
www.speakeasy.net/speedcheck
Any recent hardware/software changes?
Any error msgs ?

Is this cable or DSL?
Knowing some of these things will assist the techs here to delve further into the problem.

Hi. How are you? I am coming here because I'm going to attempt one more time. And then I'm going to call it a lost cause.I have aDell Latitude computer running windows 7. I have Google Chrome as my default browser. It is the easiest to get around in for me, and has tools for all of these popups that are in exitance. I have a question that I doubt has any real good answers, or any answer that is going to help, but I will go ahead and waiste these next few minutes just to see what happens. I LOVE YouTube. But YouTube I think is at the end of its time with me. I now have moved to a place that has a slightly slower speed and It is using Windstream. I now have PROFOUND problems browsing youtube because it is PROFOUNDLY SLOW.
 
REALLL slow. I have a question. Does anybody know of something in existance that would make it faster? I've checked my computer for bugs. NONE to be found. Cleaned it up. I've got ReadyBoost Activated, and I'm using chrome. Any suggestions or tools that would allow me to browse Youtube, and do all of the functions/features involved in YouTube like the PlayList Abilities such as AutoPlay and Auto-Repeat? ANYTHING? Oh, I Defragmented it too. And deleted other programs that I wanted to delete. Still profoundly slow. Internet Explorer isn't happening. BAAAAAD IDEA. Tried it. We're talking about Taking the definition of Profoundly slow to new and dangerous levels. Thank you very much. Sorry for waisting your time, and God Bless.

Answer:YouTube So slow on Slow Internet connection. ANYTHING left?

close other tabs in web browser. It reduces buffering issue in YouTube.

Hello, i'll be grateful if you could help us with a problem that we are having with our laptops at home. Let me to explain you, my wife have his own laptop at home, as I have mine laptop too, both of the computers share a wi-fi internet conection. I'm not sure of what's going on but the internet conection it's extremely slowly, sometimes when we reboot our laptops there is no internet conection. According to our ISP there's no problem with the internet conection, they said it could be something with the laptops.

Now, It's true that the two laptops are more slowly, specially my wife's laptop, it takes too long for any processes, I always take a look to the running processes and it seems like there are too much process always but I'm not sure of what is good and whats isn't.

I decided to attach The HiJack log from my wife's laptop, maybe with this you could help us to figure out what's going on.

Thanks for your time!

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??

So, I picked up a used R50 1831.  Windows crashed on me in less than a month (blue screen).  IBM access failed too. So I picked up windows xp and installed it with a fresh reformat of the harddrive.  Updated the Bios and began to install all the drivers.  I even put in an extra gig of pc2700.  Something is obviously wrong with this machine.  The boot takes about 10+ mintues to complete (with or without the new memory).  Application launches can take anywhere between 2-3 minutes to complete.  At random times it seems to run normal, but most of the time it is very very very very slow.  Help!  thanks

Answer:Reformated an R50. Now it is insanely slow.

Hello, may be the hdd is faulty. Please check first with HDTune.After that you should download Lenovo Tool Box or PCDoctor from Lenovo support pagessee link on top of this page and do a full system test.

The distance is too great for a wireless network and probably wouldn't work terribly well by hardwiring it (and that's assuming you can get past the physical problems of installing the cable externally). You may be able to use a powerline network connection (not sure if these will work on an extended intranet) but the setup costs are still pretty high for now.

Really - fork out the few dollars that a internet connection of your own will cost. Much better proposition all round.

Hello,

Today I reformatted my computer about and hour and a half ago, and I'm already having my first problem. My Ethernet card on my PC is no longer working properly, so I can no longer create a connection to the Internet V.I.A. Network Places. Anyways, I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling a piece of hardware from Device Manager known as Ethernet Controller. So far, it still will not work. If anyone can please provide any suggestions or answers to help me get this problem fixed, I would much appreciate it.

Thanks again,

Tyler
 

Answer:Reformated My Computer and the Internet Connection Won't Go back Online

I hate it when this happens- and sometimes it will be the same setup but a differn't fix so, I need to ask you something... In the device manager do you have a yellow "!" next to your device????? Or does it say in your task bar "a network cable is unplugged"

Hello, I have seen my problem mentioned all over the internet, but i have yet to see a solid answer from anybody yet ... if someone fixes their problem then they don't explain how they solved it ...

My problem is that browsing from one XP computer to the other is very slow ... I go into network neighbourhood and microsoft network, but then once i hit entire network there is a long delay ... after about 30 sec it allows viewing ... everything i click on requires 30sec on click to view the folders ...

My other computer is fast all the way through the entire network crap then once it tries to enter an actual share, i haven't waited long enough to even let it see files ...

My network consists of two XP computers connected over a four-port hub ... the computer with the 30 sec delay is connected to the internet and the other comp is bridged over to this connection (internet works fine)

If anyone could please give support that'd be awesome ...
 

Answer:2 XP Comps, slow folder browsing ...

Ok, here's what I have. Two Win2k computers connected via CAT5e crossover cable. Both system are reasonable in power (P4 1.7, 512 MB RAM, etc), but when I access resources over the network on either system, it takes 10+ seconds for it to finish the access. I tested the throughput of the network by sending a 564MB file from one system to the other. According to the Performance monitor, it maxed out at about 4MB/s. Both NICs are 10/100BT running in 100MB Full Duplex mode (not "Auto"). Why is it so slow??

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore.

When using applications such as Itunes, Email, or simply opening up Word and other applications, it runs very slow and almost seems to stop. The IE7 that was on the computer had changed to an operate with add-ons off as a result of the infection. I downloaded and reinstalled IE7 and this seems to have fixed that problem for the time being. MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpy icons dissappeared from my desktop. When trying to use them from the Start / Menu options the programs no longer worked. I reinstalled them and they appear to work fine now. However, the system still seems to run very slow over all and its performance is greatly hindered.

Next, I ran free version of SuperAntiSpyware and all it detected was a couple Adware cookies. Secondly, I ran free version of Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and it detected PUP.GamePlayLab infections located in the Registry Key: HKLM\SOFTGWARE\Microsoft\Windows.... These files were removed and quarantined by MWB. Thirdly, I ran Old Timer's TFC and then rebooted the computer and it appeared to run a little faster, but still sluggish while using IE7. So, finally, I ran ESET Free Online Scanner, and it detected "Win32/Toolbar.Babylon and Win32/TopMedia.a" virus infections. Scan took about 2 1/2 hours. I set it to search the drives/ar... Read more

I'm having problems regarding my wireless internet. First off, we've got two computers, one upstairs which uses a regular modem, and this one downstairs which gets its internet connection through a router upstairs.

Now, from my computer upstairs, the internet works flawlessly throughout of the day. This downstairs computer, its internet connection is...to put it mildly, crap, depending on the time of day. Speed always seems to go real slow at around the same time each day, around 2pm, around 4pm and again around 7pm. It seems to get back on track around 9-10pm, which is right now.

The funny thing is that it says connection is 'excellent' or 'very good'. Here's an example. It's the same scenario whether internet connection is actually very very slow or at normal speed.

I have no idea why, and I'd be really grateful if anyone can help me out. Tips or remedies on what I can do, because it's very frustrating!

Thank you.

Router: Edimax BR-604 WG
 

Answer:Very slow internet connection though status shows connection is 'excellent'

How the computer downstairs connected to the internet? I guessing your modem is upstairs?

I don't get what's wrong with this computer. Almost everyday it acts slow, it takes about 2 minutes to login to a page. Some days it will act fast and other days it won't and it's annoying,especially when I have to use the internet to research! It's even acting worse than a 56k modem. I've done a spyware check with spyweeper and it finds adware sometimes and I delete them, but it doesn't seem to have an affect on the speed. Does anyone have a clue what the problem might be and how to fix it. Also I have a very old cable modem, I've had it since 2002 I believe. It's a Surfboard SB4100 Cable Modem.

Answer:Help! Slow Computer, Slow Internet. Slow, Slow, Slow!

Hi MaryJane,Sorry for the delay, this forum is really swamped right now. I don't see any positive signs of malware in your log, although there is one thing that I am unsure about. I'll get to that in a minute.Before we do rootkit scans and use some other tools to confirm that malware is not the problem, let's do a quick check of resources.Press <Ctrl>-<Alt>-<Del> to open Task Manager, then click on the Processes tab. Place a check next to Show processes from all users. Note the numbers at the bottom, CPU usage should be running at 0 to no more than five percent if your system is idle (no background tasks running). If that is not the case, scroll down and see if any of the processes is running at a high percentage of CPU usage. On a normal system at idle the System Idle Process should show about 98 percent, meaning nothing else is using the CPU. The next columns to the right, memory usage and peak memory usage, may also show something out of line if one process is using a large amount of memory. If you see anything showing high CPU usage or high Memory usage, make a note of it.Now, click the Performance tab. The key numbers here are in the Commit Charge box -- The Total and Peak figures; and in the Physical Memory box, the Total figure. Make a note of these three numbers. I would like to see them, but I can tell you what I'm looking for: basically, any time the Commit Charge exceeds the total physical memory, Windows will have to constantly swap d... Read more

Hi, folks
I have 3 PCs at home, all on a wireless network with broadband. They all claim to have a "Very Good" connection to my network, but one of them has a mysteriously slow--sometimes, very very slow--connection.

This is a sporadic problem and when it happens it often stays a long time, which is infuriating. When it happens, the other PCs (laptops, actually) work fine.

I don't think physical location has much to do with it, because I don't notice a connectivity change when I bring the laptops to where the PC is .

What confuses me is that it claims to have a great connection to the network at a time when i know the network is working fine because I'm surfing the net on one of the laptops. All the PCs claim to have a great connection, but only two are succeeding despite to all apparences having the same setup.

Is there any chance that despite the fact that the other PCs are doing fine this is a router issue?

Do I need to get a new wireless card? What else could it be?

Thanks.
 

Answer:Dog-slow Internet connection on 1 of my PCs

WELCOME TO tsg:Knowing make and model of router and modem as well as type of broadband connection(dsl/cable)
Operating system and level
Here are some things to look at:
Is there a current firmware upgrade to your router.
Have you run a spyware and virus scan lately.
When it is slow,take a look at task managerl.Is there a task that is running % high.
Are you running the same anti virus and firewall on all pc's.
I am sure that others here will have some more suggestions,but this should get you started

Hi,

I have a dell studio 1557 running windows 7. I live in my own apartment with roommates in college, and i've been having some very bad issues with slow internet or constant down time. Here are some key points:

- I have Charter internet.
- My 2 other roommates have NO ISSUES.
- My laptop works in my family's house. They have Comcast. I went on vacation a week ago and there were no issues on the hotel internet. No issues from the school's internet.
- I have been using my android phone as a tether because the internet is more stable. It's slow, but consistent for the most part. This is extra frustrating because I shouldnt have slow internet. And I sure as hell shouldnt be paying for internet I can't even enjoy.
- Charter has replaced 2 routers. Both are brand new. They are net gear. Charter is clueless to my problem.
- I have reinstalled windows. Dell told me to try safe mode. I noticed NO ISSUES WITH STANDARD BROWSING IN SAFE MODE. This leads me to believe it is a software issue.
- The connection is non-existent when coming out of hibernation or rebooting. In the morning, i have to boot up, make my coffee, and only then will it give me access to the internet. Otherwise, page timeouts. It can take up to 10 minutes for the internet to work.
- Youtube and general multitasking is very bad. Slower connection than ever, page timeouts, and I often need to wait for a video/music to buffer before I begin enjoying it.

Answer:internet connection very slow

If this is your phone company then maybe call the number they have to check your phone line can help.
I had Pacbell dail-up years ago and had lots of trouble and call them was not helping at all because they keep saying all was ok. Was getting speeds at 600byte on a 56K.
Well I had Pacbell for the phones too and remembered that if you have phone troubles you could call it and they run test and tell you if there was trouble. So I called the number 611 or I think that is it and it said I had trouble so I had them come out.
Well there was a short in the line and the guy fixed it and that fixed my dial-up troubles.
What gets me both are the same company so the internet tech I talk to could of run the same test on my line I had done when I called about the phone.

Hi,

There may be a simple answer to this question. Our company LAN is separated into two office, the second office seems to have a slower service when accessing the internet to a point where its like waiting for the grass too grow.

Each office has its own server, a Linksys WAG54G router on ADSL 2 connection.

Any thoughts
 

Answer:Internet connection slow

Are you getting slow LAN or slow WAN or both.. WAN is your internet and the LAN is your office network.

How many nodes (systems) are you using in each office?
I take it you have a mixed environment both wired and wireless systems.

Seems to be a mix review on this item you're using in your office.

Hi everyone,

I have a small workgoup with 3 computers. Two are running XP Pro, one Win98.

They are connected to the internet via a router with automatic IP addresses assigned by DHCP. All NICs are 10/100, cables Cat5.

Win98's connection is so slow that IE frequently times out when both XP have can access the same site in a flash.

What gives?

As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues. Although our HJT Team members work on hundreds of requests each day, they are all volunteers who work logs when they can and are able to do so.

Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results.

I have a new Microsoft Wired Router, new D Link Switch, and new Cat 5 cables. I have 6 computer connected to them. Some of the time when I try to connect to the internet it runs like a 14.4 modem. I have a 1.5Mbs cable connection. I know that cable speed depends on how many people are the same node and are online and that sharing slow down the connection, what I don't understand is why its still that slow when I am the only one on the network using the internet.

I have windows 2000 pro installed. Do you think this is a software confiuration problem or maybe a network problem?
 

Answer:Slow internet connection though LAN

Too many variables. If you're the only one actually using the Internet, my guess is you're having cable or ISP problems, not network issues. If you can connect to other machines at normal bandwidth, it's unlikely to be your problem.

I recently .. relocated. I wanted to go with Comcast but after talking with a few friends, I found that sharing bandwidth with neighbors was not a good idea..

So I got DSL with Bellsouth. My internet speeds have been unusually slow. I should be recieving speeds.. up to.. 1.5 mbps. To make matters worse, my speeds were consistantly at the lowest acceptable speeds for my service..~780 kbps down, ~120 kbps up! Bellsouth tried and tried to help me, but were unsuccessful!

I have tried their optimization tool. No use. I am at a loss at how to fix this, getting cable, or sticking with DSL.

When I first turn on my computer, it does not connect to the internet. In the bottom right I watch the timer go round and round on the internet access symbol, then it shows a yellow triangle with exclamation mark. If I mouse over that, it says no internet access. If I then go back and hit restart, it goes through the re-boot process and does connect OK. It has done this since it was new. I also got a new modem with same results. I have a Dell backup system with Windows 10 plugged into the same modem and it always starts the first time.

Hi.
I truly hope someone here can help.

I usually have good broadband connection, but not anymore. Three days ago i downloaded and installed a free trial of Norton 360.

It slowed down everything; computer's performance and internet connection. I have since dumped Norton, which has made my computer's performance a bit faster. but there's no improvement to my internet connection.

My internet service provided has tested my internet speed and found nothing wrong with it, the signal is good, no problem.

I tested my computer for bugs, unwanted programs, but found nothing. I deleted all my cookies, internet browser setting and any else i can think of. I even cleaned up my hard drive and put a whole lot of gig back into the system. But nothing works.

Nothing will improve my internet connection.

What must I do? How can this be solved? I am truly fed up.
I have a vista 32 bit which runs on an acer aspire computer. Up until the Norton installation everything ran FINE.

Can someone help me please?
Much obliged.

This is a friends computer. HP Pavillion dv7. Windows 7 x64.
It has no internet connection, wireless or wired through ethernet.
wireless says it's connected but no internet connection. (white page)
It has Avast Premier and Malware Bytes as av software.
Attempted to navigate computer. So slow and re-accurring lockups.
Tried to run rkill then malware bytes. Still running very poorly, often locking up, no internet connection.
Tried to reset adapter, uninstalled re-installed, tried to reset winsock.
 Pretty sure my friend runs a lot of junk on this system.
I can follow directions quickly and to the letter to my esteemed person who chooses to guide me.
 Gracious thanks,

Answer:Very slow no internet connection at all

Hi! I'm sorry to hear about the issues you are having. 
 
- What do you see on the network icon in the taskbar, does it have a red X or an exclamation mark? or does it show connected?
- Do you have any other internet capable device in your network that has connection at the moment? Perhaps it could be a router/modem problem. 
- If you run CMD and type ping www.google.com what type of response do you get?
- It would be good if you could run this excellent tool and check all the boxes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/netadapter-repair-all-in-one/
- Mod Edit:  Removed suggestion to use RogueKiller...this tool is not used in this forum - Hamluis.

Hi,

The thing is my connection is running slow, i know it's not the connection itelf, because i have a router and the other pc works great. But in this one, msn drops every 5 minutes, and IE works slow, it's as if its stops every once in a while completly and then it works again but really slow.

What really concerns me, is that there are moments in wich everything stops, i can't move the mouse, the music stops and everything stads still for a couple seconds.

Before the logs,i read the thread about p2p after doing the logs, if you dont have any serious police against them, i would want to keep them. Even if right now doesn't seem like it, i'm a responsible user, not a very legal one, but responsible. Just music, no exe's or games...
What i'm culprit of doing, is downloading pre craked games from direct links, wich i already stop doing...

I know mi antivirus needs update, but its just a cuple days old and right now i have no way of downloading me update.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me , and i'm very sorry for any mistakes with my english... And for any part in the scan in spanish too.

Thanks

 

Answer:Slow internet Connection

My answer probably will not satisfy you much. I recommend going to good speed test sites often (try cnet.com, dslreports.com, dfw.speakeasy.net, etc) and get a baseline number for an average download speed. Then consider that as your working bandwidth speed. Also, you've got to remember that as you use the Internet throughout the day, your speed will go up and down drastically depending on the time of day, who else is on your Internet trunk, your ISP's capabilities, and the capabilities of the site you're downloading from. My ISP gives me about 1.1 mbps tops, but there are days, certain hours of the day, etc., when I go down to 250 kbps. It ususally picks back up in several hours, especially later in the day when all the office "workers" go home after surfing the Net all day.

Good luck
EW

My internet connection has been EXTREMELY slow for the past week. I talked to my ISP and they did some tests and said my modem was working fine. He then had me go to Run->cmd->and type in "netstat -a". It showed that I had at least 2 "established connections" which he said wasn't good and was probably the cause of the problem.

I run Ad-Aware quite frequently and it only really finds cookies. I downloaded HJT and ran that. Below is my logfile. If someone could tell me if there's anything on there that doesn't belong it would be greatly appreciated.

For the past two weeks or so, my internet connection on my pc has become extremely slow(from 200kb to 10). Not only has it gotten slower, i also cannot download anything without the connection stopping. The problem, i believe began a couple months ago with just youtube videos streaming slower and downloads stopping ever few minutes, but until these past two weeks its never been that much of a issue.

I know the problem is isn't my dsl because it works fine with other internet capable electronics so it must be a software/driver issue.The svchost uses up 100% of the CPU when something tries to update so it likely might be a windows based program acting up.

Hello.

I have setup a local area network.

I have a web server that can also be accessed from outside.

I have a PC with Microsoft Proxy Server 1.0 loaded. My inside users can connect to the local intranet web site (using Microsoft Proxy 1.) and they can download powerpoint files at LAN speed.

Now, I installed another proxy server (non microsoft) and I configured internet explorer to use it. I notice that my internal intranet users are downloading their presentation very slow (10K /sec). Actually, it seems that the system delivers the bandwidth that is for serving our Outside users.

Could you explain what is the cause of this strange effect?

Also, when it try to access internal my web server using its internal IP address (192.168.x.x) the system does not load the web page. I can only access it using www.etc...
Any ideas?

Thank you in advance.

I've tried with several other browsers, but all have the same problem. and the problem is not with the webpage, cause i had it checked from someone with a better internet connection

Is there a way to make the webpage load completely no matter how much time it takes.

Hello - I have a 4-year old laptop (Toshiba), Windows XP, not much software in it. I use mainly for cruising the web and e-mail.

From the time I push the on-button to my Comcast homepage takes a few minutes. Very very slow.

I've contacted Comcast (they're great BTW), and they told me I already have the highest broadband possible for my internet, so obviously, the problem must be on my end.

ALSO, 2 years ago, I was accessing e-mail FROM WORK through my home computer (and I was warned NOT to do it cuz it would mess up my computer at home). Surely, after that, I noticed my computer to be slow, sluggish and got a few error messages.

It's better now. I have virus sweep, defragment and have done disk clean-up, but none of these seem to help SPEED up my internet.

I am not networked to anything but BY VIRTUE of accessing work e-mail, I think I somehow got connected to their network.

I do not know how to fix that.

Any suggestions? Thank you in advance. I am a computer moron so please be patient.

This seems strange but, I was having problems with my daughters connection to the internet (BT Connect) ..the PC was working fine but the connection to the internet was unusable. I went through all the usual, router, sky connection, wiring..et al with no result. I had recently put on Norton internet 2007, and knowing the problems this can cause removed it with the norton removal tool. This seemed to make a difference for a few days all was well. Then it started again...I downloaded all sorts of spyware / anti virus stuff to my PC and loaded them onto hers...no problems found.! We did all sorts of other checks to no avail..She rang today to say she had fixed the problem..It appears that having 5741 or whatever is the BT answer machine number on her house phone had caused the problem. She rarely uses the landline and a number of messages had built up and were interfering with the connection.Once she had deleted all the messages the connection was back to normal....Am I dreaming or is this coreect..has anybody else heard of this..? I've not seen any mention and I've looked all at lots of posts recently... Glad if anyone can shed light on this.Al

Hi there
Buenos tardes

I think the problem is with the winamp site not with the Internet per se -- If a site has a slow connection you can't do anything about it.

Try downloading something from any other site that you know has a decent conncetion -- microsoft perhaps.

I got rid of the viruses (I think) by using antivirus programs: Nortons, Malwarebytes, and Regcure. It worked for a while, but everything was slow. Now its slow and the internet connection is not working very well. It connects, but only sends and receives about 93 and 67. I also have drive robot to help me recover drivers.

Answer:bad internet connection and slow

Format and reinstall, that way your virus free and your reg is all nice and clean.

If you're unsure how to do this then you can follow this guide.

I completed the xp cleaning procedure and still have an unreliable internet connection. My cable provider says the connection is fine so I'm thinking it may be malware that is causing it. I couldn't save the AVG antispyware log, but here are the other two.
Thankyou for your time,

Answer:Slow internet connection

You have a few minor things to fix in your HJT log but nothing that would cause connections issues.


Run C:\MGtools\analyse.exe by double clicking on it. This is really HijackThis (select Do a system scan only) and select the following lines but DO NOT CLICK FIX until you exit all browser sessions including the one you are reading in right now:

O2 - BHO: (no name) - {549B5CA7-4A86-11D7-A4DF-000874180BB3} - (no file)
O2 - BHO: (no name) - {FDD3B846-8D59-4ffb-8758-209B6AD74ACC} - (no file)
O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {E0E899AB-F487-11D5-8D29-0050BA6940E3} - (no file)
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [QuickTime Task] "C:\Program Files\QuickTime\qttask.exe" -atboottime

After clicking Fix, exit HJT.

You will have to decribe in significantly more detail what you mean by

Hi all

I am getting a very slow internet connection. Sometimes in the morning I get 6Mb/s, but more typicaly it's 0.1 Mb/s even when other machines on LAN connect at 4Mb/s


I have tried to be methodical about identifying root cause, but am now stumped

ISP

My other machines still connect at acceptable speeds.

Virus

My anti-virus software (Avast) is upto date and I have scanned the PC - All clean

Software

Have booted into safe mode, the problem still occurs.

Router

I have a Zyxel P600 with wireless. All of the other machines on my home LAN all run at 4+Mbs.

The router isn't Windows 7 certified. Does this make a difference? It always worked fine with Vista.

NIC

I have a intel(r) 82566dm-2 gigabit on-board connection, which I have updated to the latest driver from Intel.

There is some sort of problem here, because it keeps disconneting every 3 minutes or so, despite passing self tests. This may be the issue, however even if it doesn't drop for 5 minutes the slowness persists.

Windows Network

I get strange network map. Sometimes, it's Network1.png, which looks fine more usualy it's Network2.png, which looks like I connect using my Vista PC, which I don't. I've put this down to Microsoft oddness.

Any help very welcome

I have a new HP computer, quad-core 2.66Ghz with 3Gb of RAM, but my internet connection is so slow I can go and have lunch every time I click on a link and the new page will probably not have finished downloading when I get back! It is not unusual for the download to take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes! I have run Registry Patrol but this has had no effect on the speed problem. Csn anyone help?

Answer:Very slow internet connection

Hi Marvin...welcome to TSF!!

I'm trying to figure out how you can have a new machine with an old operating system. The only way I see this happening is with a custom build where the builder used an old OS disc to load your rig. You do not mention any Service Packs, which should be SP3.

Regardless... your internet connection will determine the speed for any downloads... as well as the source of any DLs and the file size. If the server is busy you may have a long wait. If you are on dialup the wait will be even longer. I give a simple page about 60 seconds before aborting.... many times not even that long. If downloading a file, I look at the size of the file and take that into consideration to determine a reasonable timeframe for the task to complete.

I have a computer running ME which was giving problems connecting to the internet, though not email. This pointed to a Winsock problem but I couldn't find the corrupted file responsible so I sidelined that version of Windows and Program Files by renaming their folders and installed ME again, effectively a new installation. However, although I can get a connection to the ISP at 45K very easily I find it a struggle to get a decent connection to the internet, it taking some seven or eight minutes to receive or send 2500 Bytes and then sometimes coming to life but not always. Has anyone any ideas?

Answer:Very slow connection to the internet using ME

try this one it works with 98se and may work with me, though I have'nt tried it with me.reboot with boot disk in a drive, when asked start pc without cd rom.at the a/ prompt type in as followsA/setup /?dont miss the spaceyou will then be given a choice of files to replace, chose ie when done you should be able to replace completely your internet files with original filesyou will of course have to retype your isp ect,this apllies to all windows files as far as I remember

Does anyone know what might cause Internet Explorer to run slow for one user but not another on the same (W2K Pro) machine? By running slow I mean that the time it takes to load a web page (some pages 10 min., others are faster) or to download files. When we start to download a file it will start at a decent speed but then it will just gradually slow down to an unacceptable crawl. I have been trying different things for a week now with no luck. Would the different users use different versions of IE? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill.
 

Answer:Slow internet connection

Billvan,
Welcome to TSG!!

W2K users would not be using different versions of IE but they do have their own Temporary Internet files, folders, cookies, etc.

Have you tried clearing the affected users files? Use Tools, Internet Options, Clear History and Delete Files. I would do the cookies too.

Recently when I connect to internet through mu desktop, the connection is so slow that sites that took split second to open now take ages.

In addition the access to the the setup pages for my NAS and ADSL modem through the web browser is equally slow.

Also printing a test page on my network printer took about 15-20 seconds. The test page normally prints within 2-3 seconds.

Transferring files from my NAS to the desktop is slow as well. Surprisingly transferring files to the NAS seems to be normal.

Turning off Zone Alarm didn't help.

Checked the status of my Ethernet adapter and according to windows it appears to be fine.

My OS is Windows XP with SP2 installed.

All of the above problems don't exist when I use my laptop. Do you think a virus might be the reason?

Answer:Slow Internet Connection

Hi washton !

What are your system specs ? If this is some brand computer then give us the brand and model. Else see the posting system specs link in my sig.

Please run this online test and give us the results (use the forum link you'll get at the end of the test) :
http://www.speedtest.net/

Programs running in the background could decrease your network performances. If you're running an antivirus scan at the same time you're surfing then yes it may have an impact or your internet speed. Press ctrl+alt+del to access the task manager and go to the process tab. When doing nothing the system idle process should use 99% of the cpu. If another process takes some CPU usage it means there's some program running in the background.

Answer:Very Slow Internet Connection

Hi and Welcome to TSG!
I had the same problem once, and I am with AOL.
I phoned them and got told about their new service which means that your "subscription" should renew every 3 - 5 days, and which ever speed you get when it renews, is what will be "locked" if you like, into your connection.
I found that if you are doing something that uses a lot of the bandwidth, i.e playing an online game, or downloading files etc etc, your speed will be lower.
AOL did however do some things their end aswell, and it was as good as new within 3days.
SO it is worth giving your internet company a call, and seeing what they say.

Kind Regards
Anthony

hiya!

i'm using windows 2000 and connect to the internet through dial-up. modem is 56k. speed: 36.0 Kbps.

when i browse the net, pages load very slowly and downloading speed never exceeds 3 KB/sec. sometimes less. i tried using internet download manager but it didn't really change much.

i just want to know if it is the best my computer can do? i have a firewall installed, an intivirus, an antispyware... do these programs slow down my connection or something?

i'm from a third world country if it helps any.

Answer:slow internet connection

I suggest you start with your ISP. Dialups can be horribly slow - really dependent upon your ISP. Did you ever get a better speed? Have you contacted your ISP about the speed issue - what do they say? Have they tested your connection speed?Also take a look at Slow Computer/Browser
