Ve 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 ;[.

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.

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.

But your internet plan also need to be good.If you are using very slow speed connection,you can contact your ISP and upgrade your plan.Even after followed these steps your internet speed slow means you can contact your ISP and inform the problem.They will fix this.To check internet uploading and downloading speed i would suggest the site Scanmyspeed.com here you can check speed in Mbps and MBps.

I am running hughes net satelite internet on a hughes HN 9000 modem and trying to setup and configure my linksys E3000 wireless router for two hp laptops on direct ethernet connection to our desktop,...


Are you trying to connect the laptops via wireless? Is that where you are seeing 75 mbps? I am assuming you are, and 75 mbps is really not how fast your internet connection is. Rather, that is how fast you are transferring data from your laptop to the wireless router and back. Generally speaking, this should be a way faster connection than your internet is running at. Chances are your internet connection speed is 10 to 20 mbps, which is good and fast.

It is easy to get the two confused, but basically a wireless connection of 75 mbps is an uber fast connection to your wireless router, and only if your actual internet connection was faster than that 75 mbps would you see any slowness due to that.

Wireless N routers are capable of delivering up to 100 mbps connection speeds, but again that is only from your device to the router. The router then goes to your modem and out through the internet. Chances are that connection is not 100 mbps because of interference, which can be walls, other wireless devices, etc.

One way to test your actual internet connection speed is to go to www.speedtest.net and click on one of the links on the map. This will tell you how many mbps you get to the internet.

The Mbps is all over the place jumps from 54 to 11 to 18 to to 36...why is this. and the internet is slow when this is going on.


MBPS will vary with signal strength. You can usually help by placing router and laptop closer together, maximizing signal strength. If speed is jumping around then connection is not too good.

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.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
