Hi and thanks for the info. Thats a tremendous difference. I have had netgear on and off but have never seen that kind of difference. First thing I would do is to update the netgear bios from their site. Second reset the router back to the factory settings (there is usually a bottun to push or unplug for 30 secs). Also is wireless using encryption, and if so what kind?

I have done the "netsh int tcp" thing and reset to router and it seems to be better right now but I don't think the problem is fixed completely because it is still slow at time but not all the time like before. I couldn't find any bios to download or update on the netgear site. I just updated the firmware.

My mistake it is firmware you wanted. I say bios some many times a day I just used the wrong word. Whenever you think you are slow you can go to speedtest and re-run the results.
Hope this helps and i will keep wathching this thread in case you problem gets worse

I really appreciate your help but it seems like it has not fixed the slow browsing problem. I might get a new router or something or just simply install Vista instead to see.

thanks for your help!!

My solution to the problem

I had you're exact issues after installing Win7. Every browser I tried had slow loading times when opening a site. Download speeds were unaffected. I've tried a lot of fixes but none of them worked. I finally found one that worked. The issue was caused by the Win7 drivers for my wireless network adapter Netgear WG311T.

1. Download Windows Vista drivers for your wireless adapter from the Netgear site.
2. Delete your wireless network adapter in device manager
3. Right click the driver installation and select properties. Set Vista with Service Pack 2 mode
4. Install driver

After this, my internet is back to lightning speed.

My solution

I was having the same issue. I just reinstalled my wireless adapter driver and wam bam my internet is fast again.

I originally let windows automatically install the drivers and I'm thinking they use a generic version suited to the brand, but I'm a noob so I wouldn't trust my hypothesis.

Having same issue

Heya Shun,

I am too having the exact same issue. Slow web browsing regardless of which browser I was using. I just recently bought a new gaming laptop with windows 7 pre-installed. I haven't been able to fix this issue on my laptop but I did have the same issue about the end of October when I bought a netbook with windows starter on it. I swear I remember something about one of the windows updates causing the problem and I uninstalled that update and the problem cleared. But I can't really remember if that fixed it or which update it was.

So far here are the steps I have done on my laptop that haven't fixed the issue. You might try some of these if you haven’t; never know it may work for you. Also some of these showed improvement at first but browsing slowed down again.
1. Updated the firmware of my Linksys router.
2. Completely disabled all add-ons in IE8 and uninstalled a few.
3. Completely disabled IE8, currently only using FF and Chrome (still slow)
4. Compared surfing between wireless and direct LAN and they are the same (slow)
5. Disabled all antivirus and firewall software.


I know for a fact it has something to do with Windows 7 because Asus laptops now ship with Asus Express Gate. It is a mini OS installed directly to the motherboard firmware that you can fast boot to that doesn't go into the main OS at all and it has a browser. Its a great feature, I can literally be surfing the web or be on skype in under 10 seconds. When I boot into that I have no issue surfing the web, it is lighting fast.

Some of the steps I want to try next, probably after the holiday, are:
1. Updated drivers for my network cards (wireless/wired)
https://www.sevenforums.com/browsers-mail/22241-firefox-ie8-slow-show-slow-load-remainder.html

2. Register the .dll
https://www.sevenforums.com/network-sharing/6154-ie8-slow-maybe-tweak-will-help.html

3. End every process I can in task manager, one at a time and retest (tedious)

4. Start uninstalling windows updates one at a time (very tedious also)

5. A complete recovery of Windows 7 with factory disk.


To me it seems there is some kind of throttling windows it doing. Because all browsers stall at trying to fetch new information from webpages. Pages I frequent load faster than new pages. I will post my results from my testing.
