Good Signal,Good Mbps, Slow Internet Connection?

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 ;[.

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.

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.

I have a problem with the hands on Buzz. The hands were moving fast, but all of a sudden it moved slow. How can I make the hands move fast?

To make the arms move faster, remove all the batteries and the batteries on the remote control.
Buy brand new batteries and insert them in. Turn buzz to TRY ME on his back. Stand him up and turn him OFF for 5 seconds. Then turn him to PLAY and the arm will move faster.

Perhaps you should read page 164 of the (English) manual.
When you use a "slow" memory card, on the right side of the screen a 5 bar indicator may appear, indication the buffer is running out of space. When the bar is "full" the recording will be stopped.
The slower the card the sooner the bar appears and the sooner the bar is full.
When you are using a fast card (C10 or U1) it takes longer, for the bar to appear. Or perhaps the bar won't come on at all.

Are you noticing it to be very slow online or just in general use? If it's just slow online then it could be your internet connection. If it's generally slow then I suggest a disk defrag, disk clean-up and a virus scan.

I just bought this external drive.... I twice tried to download a video I made and twice it went up to 99% done and an error came on!!! and now I am trying another one, and it is creating it sooooo slow...

Sometimes the Bus just isn't fast enough.
You've either got a slow USB port (1.1) or you're attempting to burn a disc at max speed with a slow processor or low RAM.
If you're using this drive on a netbook of some sort, you'll have to be patient and burn at slower speeds. Remember - You can do it right, or you can do it fast and f*ck it up.

Sounds like a sensitivity problem.

1) Go to "Control Panel"
2) Go to "Mouse"
3) There should be a slider bar that says "Slow" "Fast" just make it slower an it will slow down the mouse.

If this is only happening sometimes, it could be that your system is bogged down. You could try closing a bunch of programs that are loading on startup or getting more ram for your machine.

Acer Aspire 5580 suddenly slowed down

Your acer is infected with virus that current antivirus cannot detect. uninstall new application programs that make your computer slower. however if non of those causes; please try to check the memory maybe is not function well. if it is not the cause then; You should reinstall your system to fixed all error on it. ( note: reinstalling will remove some important files and you should back up) Further more; the best thing to do is format the HDD and install the new windows.

Harry: take note: that other causes of the computer slower is the HDD , I encountered 50 times problems that computer become slower bcoz of the hard drive mulfunction. If this is the case you should replace hard drive that is covered with warranty.

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads

it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.
