Connection speed astronomically slow

a couple days ago or so i hopped on bf3, and reallized that it was going super slow, i got on fb, and pages werent loading, i whent to speedtest.net and that took awhile to load also, so i finnaly ran a speed test, TWC gave me a 26.6 mbps download and .96 upload. that is astronomically slow seeing as how i am running a wired connection on a 50mbps connection. i ran anti virus, came up with nothing, i am cleaning up trash and have reset the network multiple timee, i am running out of options if some one knows somthing else i might try id appreciate it

Actually, that should be pretty fast, Thornton.

I have a 5.15 Mbps connection speed, and it isn't too shabby. Perhaps there is something else going on here.

thank you, i just found it odd, ive never been below 38 EVER befer with a wired connection on this pc, its not whether or not it is still a good connection (although thank you) its that that sudden drop in a matter of minutes worries me. its bad when my phone is pulling a faster speed test than my pc. thank you for the link i will check it out. ultimately, i just dont know why WVERYTHING on the web is lagging, bf3, face book, g mail, even seven forums here took a while to load

As Dustsailor says, 26Mbs is pretty fast and in comparison to his and mine (at around 3Mbs) should load pages almost instantly - problem is, once you are used to a particular speed and performance if it goes down or doesn't work as well, it is really noticable.

sometimes when there is heavy internet traffic, you will experience temporary decreases. It should go back to normal before long. If it doesn't, let me know.

Thor,

Is it still happening? If so, and if you are using a wireless connection, attempt to use a wired connection and see if the problem persists.

You can download a newer and a slightly older version of your wireless adapter driver off the internet. Uninstall your current one after that, and test both versions (starting with the newer first) to see if there is any improvement (installation). If you want to try the older version, uninstall the new one you had just installed.

Let me know if any of this works at all

Try using a shorter cord. Aside from using the troubleshooter I gave you up top, try this if you use IE: Troubleshooting Internet Explorer Issues
