Windows 7: Internet being extremely slow

Internet being extremely slow

Hi, long time since I've logged on here

I started up my PC today, everything was cool. I went out for a bit and when I came back, the internet was going horribly slow. Pages show in text version, some don't load at all. Youtube keeps giving me the 'There was an error loading the video, please try again later'.

I ran a check, I'm getting 4mbps, I normally get 9 or 10 but 4 is fine for me. I'm not downloading anything and the only internet connected program I'm running is Chrome.

Any thoughts?

James, You may just have to wait a little bit, as sometimes Bandwidth gets limited due to outside forces. Simple things you might try:
  1. unplug both router and modem. wait 15 seconds, plug modem and then router back in
  2. Restart your computer
  3. Try a wired LAN connection
  4. try to download the newest version of your Lan driver (wireless or otherwise), uninstall your current one, and install the new one
