Terrible slow internet connection after installing SP2

Hi guys, hope you can help me out with this: I have my system running for two years now with Windows XP Pro. No problem ! After upgrading to SP1: no problem ! After upgrading to SP2: very slow internet connection ! I have read articles with lots of people having same problems (terrible slow internet after upgrading to XP2 in combination with KX600) but unfortunately NO SOLUTION. This looks like a MoBo failure. I have done everyting: clean install, you name it. Please help me; I do not know what to anymore.

    As said before, this has nothing to do with drivers etc. Believe me I have tried it all. I need a solution for the MoBo failure.

    Motherboards has nothing to do with connection speeds.Also the upgrade.I instead try your ISP to check for any issues.If you get a connection and it is slow it can be a sort of things.The MTU is the "Maximum Transmission Unit" used by the TCP protocol. TCP stands for Transmission Control Prototcol. The MTU determines the size of packets used by TCP for each transmission of data. Too large of an MTU size may mean retransmissions if the packet encounters a router along its route that can't handle that large a packet. Too small of an MTU size means relatively more overhead and more acknowledgements that have to be sent and handled. The MTU is rated in "octets" or groups of 8 bits. The so-called "official" internet standard MTU is 576, but the standard rating for ethernet is an MTU of 1500.

If you are sure it is a motherboard problem relating to the on board ethernet connection, purchase a PCI slot ethernet card and see if using the card manufacturers drivers are better than the motherboard ethernet drivers. Although i'm not sure how a slow connection is the motherboard problem, it maybe that it's SP2 thats the problem. Have you checked the driver that is used for the onboard ethernet connection, it maybe you need to re-install original motherboard ethernet driver you got with it.

My computer runs really slow, freezes, internet explorer hardly ever works. help!!


There is no such thing as a windows vista machine. You can install different operating systems on different machines. Your problem is most likely that you're missing drivers for the peripherals.
Download a program called "driver easy" and run it. It will tell you what drivers are missing, once you get all the drivers installed you should find things work better, like once you get your network running then internet explorer will stop having problems.

I have a 3 year old asus eee PC and it is running like a dog! Help!!!


It's an ATOM CPU @ 1.6GHz and should be running XP. Do you still have 1GB of RAM? Upgrade to 2GB if possible. Get rid of Win 7. Get rid of Ubuntu.

I got an old dog myself, and I just installed Ubuntu. Slow, but it's dual boot.

I have an xbox and a ps3 and my xbox has terrible connection to the wifi and my ps3 is connected to the router and has even worse connection thn my xbox! how do i improve my inteernet connection to my...


Sometimes when this happens to my PS3 or Xbox, I turn off my routers for at least 10 seconds then start back up again. Another way to rule out that it is indeed your gaming systems and not lag with your internet connection, I recommend that you run a bandwidth test from your PC first. This will give you an initial understanding of your internet performance. If your Bandwidth test returns a result of a slow connection, this will have a direct impact on your gaming experience. Here is a link to test your bandwidth (or internet connection speed.)

Click here for speed test.
Note: anything below 1mb on your download speed will cause your gaming experience to be poor.
I recommend 3+ meg for optimal performance.

I hope this information helps you.
Regards,
NIco

How can I activate Operating System Microsoft windows XP home SP1 ?


When you click on Activate now you can select the activation by the Internet or by telephone.
To activate by the Internet you need to have the LAN card installed with the drivers and have Internet access, otherwise you need to activate by the telephone.
Please note XP SP1 is old you need to install XP SP3 (which includes SP2).

Wndows Xp Sp2


If you have already installed service pack two I would upgrade to SP3 to fix this problem. If you are trying to install SP2 try downloading the "genuine advantage update" (or what ever its called) and then the sp2 update, close all open programs before installing this update to help prevent hangs and crashes. also visit your manufacture website and download the SP2 patch if offered the patch will ensure a smooth install to sp2. good luck
