Windows 7: Suddenly "slow" internet

Suddenly "slow" internet

well its kinda hard to say what my problem is, so i will try to state it as clear as possible:

My internet is slow, but i made a few ping test and they seemed fine, once an youtube video loads it starts playing with no problems, downloading works with fullspeed (5 gb under 25 minutes).

But my browser needs a lot of time to load a webpage.

The more pages i open, the longer my browser takes to load them.

I already restarted my pc multiple times, restarted my router twice, second pc also does have the same problems.

If i have a lot of tabs loading, i also need some time till i can connect to my rounter (via internal ip:

i first thought this might be due to the programm i just instaled shortly before this error happened (curse voice) but i de-instaled it, and second pc has also the same problems.

i hope i got trough to you, what i meant and did not wrote to much.

Might it be our internet provider? (unitymedia)

Hi there,

Does this apply to only one browser? I'd suggest for you to try a different browser.

Do a test - restart your computer and continue tapping F8 then select Safe Mode with Networking, see if you can open multiple tabs at the same time without any issues.

Also, it won't hurt to run SuperAntiSpyware-Free version for possible infections. Also Eset Online Scanner.

I'd say it can't hurt to do a reboot of your router and/or cable modem. We were having some sluggish internet issues and that seemed to do the job.

if you have a good downloading speed this implies that there is no problem with the internet
so the problem is with the browser that you are using

i will suggest you to reset the browser settings

1) if you are using IE follow the steps :-
a) open RUN box
b) type inetcpl.cpl
c) delete cookies and history
d) to to the last tab "Advanced"
e) left click on it and you will find an option RESET
f) click on reset

2) if you are using google chrome
click on setting and look for the option show advanced settings...scroll the page down and you will get option "Reset Browser Settings"

3) And if you are using Firefox then click on help then click on troubleshooting information and on the right side you will see an option RESET . Click on Reset..

also you can delete and create the profile by using the followings :-
open RUN and type firefox -p
you will get the options
