Question about Dell PC Desktops

1 Answer

I have a Dell which is on Verizen Fios but still slow.

I have a Dell2350 with additional memory and it is very slow.
I have Verizon Fios and have tested the speed which is normal
for the Fios I have.
But the MSN connection is very slow and I do not have any better luck
with Mazella Firefox Hotmail or Intenet Explorer . I do not like the hotmail presentation and have been using MSN .
I do as much maintenance as I no how as well as using software called Fix-It-Utilities 9. I have Windos XP and My Windos Defender sottware.
Crashes! And has to be restarted constantly. I know this is not enough
information, but it is the best I can do.

    I will see if it sped up my system.

    Many thanks

Where can I find the maximum connection speed of my computer? I have a Dell desktop and I have Verizon Fios for my internet connection.


This might fall under the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for; you might just get it" LOL But here's your link and perhaps a learning experience if you choose to take the leap.

I have a Dell desktop with Vista windows.Later it takes very long time to start and freezes a lot. since i switched from Cable to Verizon Fios about a month ago it is gotten much worse


You would installed a lot of softwares in it. By installing more softwares and programs, they were saved in startup. They start running when you start windows. You have to disable programs from startup. You can disable programs from startup by going on Start > Run > msconfig > startup > Disable all programs. Your computer's speed is boosted.

I already have verizon internet"fios' how ever i want to purchas cable for my hd tv


Usually Verizon can offer HD TV over the same FIOS cable. If you call them, they can connect it to your TV for you.

If you call the cable company they can probably set up cable for you. The two shouldn't interfere with each other.

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

The battle: Acer Vs. Verizon FiOS


Verizon needs to apply a firmware update for the Atheros wireless adapter in your notebook. I work for Acer and I end up having to tell people this all day long. If you take this to a wireless router that is not from verizon you will have no problems with your connection. Maybe if enough Fios customers complain they will provide a firmware update for this.
