Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Brand New Computer has a slower dowload speed than old computer

I have a new HP desktop with windows 8, and an older HP desktop with windows Vista. I used speedtest.com. Both computers pings and upload speeds are roughly the same. The download speeds are way off. The new Hp is averaging 3.8 Mbps, while the old is at 20 Mbps. Both computers are wirelessly connected to a Linksys 2.4 Ghz router. Both have strong signal strength. Both have netgear wireless. The new HP has the n300. The new HP has Norton antivirus, while the old one has no protection as of now. When I disabled the Norton antivirus on the new HP, the download speed did not change. Any suggestions what the problem may be?

SOURCE: One computer on network can't open internet pages

Have you change something in the web utility of WRT300N router. If not then I suggest take the wireless card out of you computer and reboot it. Try to configure your network connectivity through ethernet card, which is comparatively easy as to configure wireless network.
Run the disc that came your router and configure your network connectivity through its utility. Once you established network then you can try connecting wireless card back into your computer and take it from there.

SOURCE: Computer cannot access the internet

Try to disable wireless card on your desktop. With both the wireless and cat-5 socket enabled, "WITHOUT" the proper bridge settings, they will conflict and not be able to read.

Hello Linda!
It sounds like a firewall is blocking the connection. I assume you`re using Windows, so go to Control Panel > Windows Firewall and disable it.The next step is, if your not using a proxy. Open up your browser, if you`re using Firefox go Tools>Options > Advanced> Settings... (Connection) and make sure the 'No proxy' option is checked, restart your browser. For Chrome go to Options>Under the Hood>Change proxy settings (Network) a new window will come up from here you select LAN settings(Note: This will change the proxy settings for your whole system) and select automatic if it`s on manual. Finally disable your antivirus software just for a short amount of time, and try to browse the web, just to make sure that it`s not interfering with the connection.

My 5 year old computer is getting slower and slower, takes 5 - 10 minutes to boot up in the morning, is slow to open up attachments and move from application to application.


Most likely due to low available disk space on the hard drive. Items like system restore and the fact that windows does not report partially used clusters as Used (If any part of a file is written to a cluster, that cluster is dedicated to that file regardless of how much is not being used, even though windows reports it free)

So freeing up disk space is one option.

You can also use applications like Advanced System Care to tune up your system

Dear,
Your HP computer may be new, but your programs must be compatible with your operating system. If your Creatacard is older, the compatibility most likely stops with Windows Vista. Windows 7 is like a "brand new day". Read the label on your CD. It will tell you which systems it will work on. I had Windows 98 and Windows Millenium. When I upgraded to Windows XP my "create" CD's no longer worked.
Try downloading Avery cards. Be blessed.

My inlaws have a new hp pc with windows 7... the have an older hp t45 that they would love to have work... there is no windows 7 driver and the vista compatible printer has been dropped from the windows...


Your question is confusing to me - they have a new computer with 7 and they have an older computer with an unknown system (you allude to Vista - not at all that old!) and they have a "classic" printer which they want to work on the new computer ... is that the sum of it?

My suggestion is get the old computer running --- tune it up a little with CClean, Comodo's RegCleaner, and Spy bot - Search and destroy. All free to download and freee to use forever. Defragment the drive using the windows defragmenter. After you get it going, update the OS (Windows I presume) at the Windows Update Site. Get the latest driver for the printer. Next step is to get a 4 port LinkSys router - and build them a network. You will be the hero (not that you arent their hero already ...)

I have a new computer with Windows Vista. I have


No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista.
Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does.
The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.

Go to the Lexmark site. More than likely if the unit is more than a few years old you will not find Vista drivers. Most manuf. have their hands full creating Vista drivers for current products and are making no effort to provide for older equipment. Be prepared to throw it away. It is a problem for many varient Operating Systems: XP64-bit, Linux, etc.

Most programs written for Windows XP also work in this version of Windows, but some older programs might run poorly or not at all. If an older program doesn't run correctly, use the Program Compatibility Wizard to simulate the behavior of earlier versions of Windows.
• Open the Program Compatibility Wizard by clicking the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, clicking Control Panel, clicking Programs, and then clicking Use an older program with this version of Windows.
NoteTo find out if your programs (or programs you plan to buy) are compatible with Windows Vista, go online to the Windows Vista Compatibility Center. This website contains a comprehensive list of programs, computers, and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.
