Good Signal, Good Speed, Slow Internet?

Ive recently noticed that my internet is going slower and slower. It used to be very fast and all of a sudden it's very slow? Ive tried turning the router on and off and it returns my internet speed back to how it used to be but for only a few minutes. I want a fast connection again ;[.

My Wireless Adapter is a : Linksys WUSB54GSC
My Router is a : Verizon Actiontec M1424-WR

Ive also noticed that my connection starts at 54mbps speed and ''Very Good'' Signal then goes down to 11mbps and a ''Very Low'' Signal.
This problem is on this computer only. My laptop connection is just fine.

Try plugging the computer straight to the router.If all is well the adapter may need a firmware or driver update.Or your adapter may be experiencing some type of heat problem or failingRICHARDM69

1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.

if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.

let me know how it works out.

Nokiac1 mobile modem internet very slow how to increse speed in pc


Sounds like you are using a cellular modem. Internet through the cell phone network is usually always going to be slow, nothing can change that other than making sure you have a device that supports 4g and you have 4g signal. Anything else is going to be slow and the lower the signal the slower it will be.

Having problems steaming netflix through our TV


It could be buffering when it stops playing your video. You dont need a real fast internet connection but it shouldnt be real slow either. Ive noticed that if you get the basic monthly internet its only providing 3 mbps. Which is slow and will cause the video to buffer. Mine is only a step above at about 7 mbps and I have no problems with buffering. Is this is the case just upgrade to a faster speed through your internet carrier.




if so upgrade to a faster speed.Hope this helped.

Ive been having problems with my internet connection i have called my ISP and they've sent people to my house to fix it but every time my internet connection has gotten worse my modem is RCA model:DCM425...


Cable internet is a bit trickier to troubleshoot because it uses coaxial/optical infrastructure from your ISP to your home. Also, depending on the fine print of your contract, you may be stuck with them. Usually ISPs have a clause that they'll deliver UP TO 15mbps but they dont guarantee that you'll get that speed. Your browsing speed depends on the quality of cabling, distance from their main facility, distance from the closest optical link, distance from the closest amplifier, and amount of connections drawing connection from that same amplifier.
I'd also suggest that you run pingtest.net and see the quality of your connection when the internet feels fast, and when you think it's slow. Raw speed is not the decisive measurement. It's mostly a marketing trick. Usually, what matters is the ping rate and jitter. In other words, how fast two computers can communicate both ways without losing the integrity of the connection (ping) and what is the amount of noise (jitter).

Slow downloads , using high speed , transfer rate should be 90+kps , only getting12


what are you using as a router? is it just recently getting slower? If it is recent:
-check to make sure no one else is on your network
-call your internet company (some do have caps that they will put on you if it is used too much..the sly dogs)
-check your task manager to make sure there are no crazy apps in the background sucking your juice
-if you are torrenting then pause them while browsing... torrents will slow you down majorly

Slow internet at 120 Kbps but fast connection at 54 Mbps Why


54 Mbps is the speed between your computer and your wireless router. The .8 Mbps is the speed of your connection between the router and the internet. You should call your ISP and ask what your speeds should be; there could be something wrong on their end or your modem might be malfunctioning. It's also possible that your WiFi connection itself has a weak signal. That can be corrected by moving the router and the computer closer together, or getting a signal relay and putting it between them.

I recently just got a MSI U100-843 and having video problems


The problem could be from your internet connetion, I think your internet speed or Mbps is slow. Although system speed also has a great role to play.

So check your system memory and processor speed if it is up to standard likewise your internet connection. The problem is from either of them.

Also compare your friends compaq notebook system configuration and internet connection with yours. I believe you would know where the fault is coming from when you do this.

I use my office server to browse with my laptop and the server speed/Mbps is 100. Its usually very fast when I download. I noticed later that it gets slower between 9:30 am and 5:00 pm when alot of people are using the server in the office, so what I do is to stay back when most people must have gone and server will be fast then.

Why I am sharing this with you is because, maybe the internet server you are using gets congested as a result of many users, so maybe you should try in a time when you know most people are off the server.

I wish you the best of luck.
