Windows 7: Slow Browser or Internet Connection?

Slow Browser or Internet Connection?

Hi guys,

I have a problem with accessing the internet. I have a 4MBit/s broadband connection, which I have tested and it is exactly 4 MBit/s. When I open up any browser (Opera, IE or Winfox/Firefox) it takes about 5 seconds for the google homepage to appear. This seems too slow to me, but maybe you know better? Other pages take much longer..20 seconds for a normal webpage.

Hope you can help

Cheers,

Jonny

Johnny You have 4mb down but probably only 500K up. You can go to anyofthe commercial services and have that checked. I use speedtest.net. They will tell you actual. I suspect the delay may have more to do with your system than the connection

Hi guys,

the maleware thing didn't work unfortunately.

Using the test I have: Download: 3.61Mb/s and Upload: 0.04 MB/s and Ping: 1310ms.

How are those values?

Cheers

Its the ping tiime that is killing you. 3,61 down is enough. Are you using homegroup for your networking? Are there any other machines running a different OS?

If that ping time came from speedtest.net, try using a different server and run the test again, to rule out the possibility of a bad server downstream. You should also run a tracert from Command Prompt to another location on the web, so that you might be able to see where the bottleneck is. If you are unfamiliar, the screenshot should help:

Hi Seekermeister,

I did like you said and here is the result:

Tracing route to front.opera.com [195.189.143.147] over a maximum of 30 hops
1 3 ms 3 ms 3 ms 192.168.1.1
2 1758 ms 1447 ms 2362 ms rdsl-dsdf-de01.nw.mediaways.net [213.20.58.193]

Trace complete.


This doesn't look too healthy does it? Do you know anything that I can do about this?


Cheers

Your pings are so high.

Hard reset on your modem and router.

Hi Ken,

I think that TGSoldier is correct, because the ping bottlenecks immediately between your machine and your ISP. In addition to resetting the router, do the same with the modem (I've never had DSL, but I assume that requires a modem like cable also). If resetting these don't help, I would call the ISP tech support, because it seems that either your router, or their modem is the problem (assuming that you don't own the modem).
