Slow internet connections happen for various reasons, even when you pay for a 'high speed connection' like DSL or cable.Because the internet (and World Wide Web) is built on hundreds of different technologies trying to talk to each other, there are many places where data can slow down before its reaches your computer screen. Your ISP (Internet Service Provider) might be at fault, certainly, but there are many other factors to look at before assigning blame. Some of these slow points are within your control, and can be quickly fixed with a little do-it-yourself effort:-

'' Disable background running services & programs.
'' Remove extension of browser.
'' Clear history & cache.
'' Check your preferred DNS address.
'' Optimize internet setting with reliable program to increase it (must use RegInOut for it.)
'' Turn off router for 5 to 10 seconds, then turn on it.
'' Restart PC.

Enjoy :-)

I would suggest doing some house-cleaning using some Freeware programs. CCleaner: http://filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ In the TOOLS section, STARTUP , disable ALL unnecessary startup programs. Malwarebytes: http://filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ Make sure to UN-CHECK/UN-TICK the Trial Pro Version during the install, you want the freeware version. Run a full scan. Also, take a look at these tips: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10-things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/
REBOOT YOUR LAPTOP after these procedures.
In IE locate the TOOLS Icon (Top right Gear icon), open Internet options, Programs tab, select Manage add-ons, disable/remove ALL Toolbars in Toolbars and Extensions, select Search Providers, disable ALL except Google. If you haven't already download GOOGLE CHROME and try to load the same website, any difference? Are you using a Secure Connection? Home? Wireless? Wired? For further suggestions reply to this post.

SOURCE: after installing windows 7 operating

Hello, Make sure that the RAM or memory of your laptop are properly seated in the slot,because a long beep sound like that is usually associated with memory problem, I would also suggest you increase the memory of your laptop by buying additional memory, but make sure your laptop can support it. Since you just installed window 7 and complained about your laptop slowness,it is better you increase the memory. Regards

SOURCE: Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I

How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.

Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).

If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?

The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.

If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.

Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Acer 4620 slow internet connection


Can you be a bit more specific? On IE? Download Google Chrome, use it from comparison . I would assume you need to trim down the Add ons on IE? Open Control Panel, Internet Options, Programs tab, open Manage Add Ons, Toolbars and Extentions, Disable/Remove ALL toolbars and unnessary extentions. In Search Providers, Remove/Disable ALL unnessary Search Providers, set Google as default and check the two boxes in the left bottom. Run a FULL Scan with freeware MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version. Run a FULL Scan and Delete ALL results and reboot. Use CCLEANER at : http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This freeware program will clean the junk and free up disk space. In the TOOLS section, STARTUP section, Disable ALL unnessary startup programs. Is your Internet connection Wired or Wireless? If wireless , is it Secured? Have you contacted your ISP?

My Compaq presario CQ50 is having internet issues...


Run windows diagnostics and if that doesnt work, open up the command prompt in administrator mode and type in /ipconfig renew and after that type in /ipconfig repair and see if that helps. Also look in internet options and under connections click on lan and check that there are no numbers in the proxy box as this can sometimes cause issues if you have used any software to hide your ip address.

Acer one notebook not connecting to internet


Hi Kat,

Ok, firstly i would recommend restoring all back to factory settings as it would appear that this a a configuration problem and that should fix it as i believe there is no personal or data to be backed up as yet.IF there is, simply back it up to a thumb drive.

To restore to factory settings(Like it has just come out of the box basicly) When the laptop starts up hold down ALT and keep pressing F10.

A screen should appear with configuration settings and an option to system restore.

Select system restore and it should have prompts from there.

My internet explorer is running slow and some pages do not load at all. The connection is fine so i think it must be the internet explorer itself. Any ideas please?


hi thanks for using fixya!

First of all, you must be sure that you have a fast internet connection, better yet to check your connections as well.

Secondly, try to delete some temporary internet files, cookies and all.

Third, you may download and install to your laptop the newest version of IE, please click HERE

If you need further assistance, please let me know.

Internet issues


Hi,

In the right bottom corner of the screen you can see the Wireless icon, right click on it and select Connect to a Network.

Then a box will be opened where you can see the available routers. Select your router click on connect.

If it still shows that it is connected but Internet explorer won't display page, then once try to ping Websites.

Click on Start--Run

type ping www.google.com -t and press Enter.

You should get reply from the Website. if you won't get reply, then there is no Internet connection at all. In that case, you can try the below steps:

1. Press the Start button, then select Run..
2. type cmd in the dialog box, and press OK.
3. In the command line interface that appears, type ipconfig /flushdns and press Enter.
4. Then, type ipconfig /release and press Enter.
5. Now type ipconfig /renew
6. Exit the command prompt.

That should resolve the issue.


If you get reply from the Website and Internet won't display page, then download and install the winsock.exe file from the following Web site:
http://www.pchell.com/downloads/WinsockXPFix.exe

This bring the connectivity to Browser.

Try that and get back to us if the issue persists.
