Windows 7: Internet so slow!!

26 May 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, Windows Developer Preview, Linux Mint 9 Gnome 32 Bit

Have you tried clearing your Internet cache? Use CCleaner to empty your browsing history which could speed up the Internet a bit but this dramatic slowdown in your net speed is unexplainable because it slowed down many times. I'm actually jealous of a speed than can download 2GBs in 30 minutes.

Have you tried troubleshooting your connection for problems? Right click the network icon on the side panel of the Taskbar and choose Troubleshoot Problems. Let it do its thing and see if there are any improvements...

Maybe your network provider is cheating you lol. Have you looked into that angle?? They could have simply lowered the bandwidth your connection could get and the good speed was only meant for the first month of subscribing or maybe it was a time limited offer for a new subscriber. I would look into those things too. If you think the network has a problem, tell your mom to call the network provider's customer support to give some assistance and shed light into this.

ISP is a one of the Possible cause

You may get slower speeds for many things
  1. You restarted your router so Internet slows down to keep a constant connection
  2. Someone else joined the ISP So your bandwidth was reduced to allow another user
  3. Amount of what you are paying for may affect your speeds
  4. Too many devices connected to your Router causing Internet to slow down

Sounds like you were pinging an internal router You need to be hitting your ISP's default gateway. With replies of under 1ms, you are likely still on your local LAN segment.

Are you wireless or wired? If wireless, you may be getting WiFi interferance from a new neighbor or somehting (or worse, someone may be using your WiFi and stealing your bandwidth if is is not properly secured!) ...

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

and im on wireless. and no one is getting connection from this except in the house. No one else knows the code. or WEP.. and i recently reformatted my computer so i dont think it will have to deal with the internet cache because i had that problem before i reformatted it. and yea i tried troubleshoot problems many times because when i leave the computer for a while i always come back and it has no internet access. Sometimes this forces me to restart the computer? Why is this because this is not the first computer that that had happened on. And I'll tell my mom to call these people because this is ridiculous. Any other suggestions though? I appreciate everyones help!!

Ok, WEP is breakable in about 60 seconds... It is no security what so ever. Well it might keep grandma from next door off, but no one else. You NEED to be using WPA2.

Secondly, do you know what other WiFi routers might be in the area? Is your house isolated? Can you see any other routers listed from the computer?

If you have a smart phone, there is a really nice app that will list your signal strength as you walk around your house and also tell you if other routers are stomping on your currently selected channel.

Just a suggestion, enable MAC address filtering on your WIFI configuration and put your MAC address, this will restrict other PC in connecting to your WIFI, even you don't have any WEP or WPA2. This method is done by our professor at our school WIFI so we students cant connect to the internet, we even try to crack it using Backtrack but still, we can't connect. So that might be a good security for your WIFI.

Slow with Internet
I've recently installed 7 on my System and is working fine. Speed is OK. But the problem is with Internet. I've observed that as the connected time increases, my System gets slow. I have to reboot the System to get the normal speed. Is there a fix for this? I'm using AVG Free Edition.
