Re: 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.

Hi, when i go to play texas holdem poker or look at pics it wont load the whole page of poker and when trying to view pics it takes forever, please help..

The pages are timing out before the full files are downloaded. This is because you have a slow internet connection, contact your ISP for details.
Have fun :)

Router speed is really slow and my laptop can't connect to the internet.

Try to upgrade the firmware of the router. Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

I have internet service through Clear (formerly Clearwire), and am troubleshooting a network problem. I have a problem with my internet connection slowing down to where some sites will not load in, and...

What I would suggest have two browser windows open, 1 is to the regular internet and the 2nd is to which is the clear modem, The username is admin and the password is motorola. Once you are in, make the window the size of the icon in the middle of the screen, this will allow you to watch what the modem is really doing when you are accessing the internet in the other window.. If you see an X over the picture of the world and you still have bars on the right then definately contact them and let them know because it shouldnt do that. I know this as I have the same service here in Philly and I am having issues with it, so I always keep a little window open with that picture so I can watch it.
