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.

Cannot download youtube any more; how do you get the it updated?

Why YouTube Suddenly Won't Download by Andrew Schrader Firefox Can't Download Files Larger Than 1GB
  • Why Firefox Freezes When Opening Web Pages
  • How to Fix Web Pages That Don't Load Properly
  • Can't Type in the Body of Yahoo Email Using Firefox

  • Why Does YouTube Keep Stopping?

  • Troubleshooting YouTube can be a sometimes long and frustrating process, especially if you watch videos as part of your work. If YouTube suddenly refuses to download video, making it impossible for you view it, you may temporarily have a slow Internet connection, or the problem could be specific to the video, your browser or your computer. Troubleshoot your Web browser and your network's security settings to isolate the issue.

    YouTube Quality Settings If you are suddenly unable to watch YouTube videos, you may be trying to watch a high-definition video with a slow Internet connection. YouTube automatically loads videos on an "Auto" setting that chooses the best quality video for your player; however, it may choose too high a quality setting for your Internet connection. Refresh the page and change the YouTube video's quality to the lowest setting by clicking the gear icon near the bottom right corner of the video player. You can also set YouTube to never play high-definition video by navigating to your Settings page and selecting the ""I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video" option.
    Cache Settings Websites often use cookies and cached data to remember personal settings and speed up the time it takes to load pages. If YouTube suddenly will not play video, it might be due to corrupted settings; to troubleshoot this issue, delete your cookies and clear your entire Web history. After clearing your cache, restart your browser and try to load the video again.
    Browser and Plugin Upgrades It is important to upgrade your Web browser to the latest version and install any updates, as old browsers may not be fully compatible with certain YouTube features. Check that all your add-ons and plugins are updated to their latest versions, as outdated or corrupted extensions can conflict with normal browsing functions. For example, Flash Player is required for YouTube playback; Google Support states that older versions may cause problems playing video.
    Enable JavaScript Although JavaScript is usually turned on automatically in most Web browsers, you or someone you share a computer with may have disabled it. JavaScript is a programming tool that allows sites to display interactive content. It is not an add-on or extension, but is rather built into most browsers. Check your browser's support page to see how to enable JavaScript in your browser.
    Security Settings It's also possible that your firewall, pop-up blocking or anti-virus settings may be preventing YouTube from loading videos. If you are in an office setting with other online computers, check to see if other computers can load YouTube. If not, contact your network administrator to see if you can change your network settings, as they may be preventing YouTube connections or playback of Flash media. If you are at home, temporarily disable your security settings and retest playback to check if your settings are causing the download problem.

    How do I download an mp3 from the net?

    You should find a site which let's you to download files. Procedure for downlad might be different, depending the way site administrator means you should make the download.
    At some sites you should press a download "button" and your browser should start download right away.
    Oter sites take yo to some oter page, maybe ask yo fill a capcha and then let you start the download
    A another sites, you should select link, with righ button select option "download" and save it to you downloads folder,
    Also some sites use "host" sites, where they ask you for a "premium" account for "fast" download or a free but slow download. This slow download is sometimes exasperatingly slow but no way to make it faaster - it's a way to pusch you to get a "premium" download account.
    There are sites which let's you input a Youtube URL address and let's you download the converted MP3 file
    Most of these mp3 download sites are not legal because you are downloading copyright protected music you should pay for so I'm really sorry but can't provide you a listing of some of most popular sites to download mp3 files

    Hi my hp compaq nc6000 does this weird thing; like, its really slow to browse down a page and it lags on watching movies online (not buffers) it just goes like its in slow motion which is how it is with...

    All you can do is check it for trojans get a free copy of spynomore and see what it finds If it's not trojans then the hard-drive may not have any space left on it... it needs 10% to breathe. It uses the 10% as cache. If that isn't the issue then try doing a hard drive diagnostic. You may have dropped the notebook one time and the hard drive could be close to failing.

    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.

    Slow on facebook

    To optimize your Facebook experience, please download the most up-to-date version of your Internet browser. For more information on upgrading your browser, follow the instructions listed here.

    In addition, please try the following steps to troubleshoot the issue you're experiencing:
    1. Click out of the application (e.g., click Profile or Inbox at the top of any Facebook page), and then re-open the application.
    2. Refresh the page (Ctrl + R on PCs; Cmd + R on Macs).
    If the above steps did not resolve the issue, please contact the developer of the application through their Profile Page if:
    1. The application hangs during the loading screen.
    2. The application loads, but is really slow.
    3. The application loads, but will constantly be out of sync.
    If the issue you're experiencing is happening with multiple applications and with Facebook Platform in general, please report it to us here.

    Lastly, if you are seeing an "Offline mode" or timed out error in your browser as if they're not connected to the Internet when you try to access you third-party application, you may be experiencing connectivity issues. We'd recommend that you talk directly to your network provider in regards to this issue.

    Where can I download the software for my iRiver B20? I've tried the iRiver sites and they really ****! Usually my computer freezes when I go to one. Unfortunately I had the software installed on my laptop...

    I agree, the page loading from the iRiver site is really very slow.
    Tried for over one hour now ! No result.
    Try later for Support / Downloads / B20 and have your go for firmware.

    When you only need iriverPLUS3: click on SITEMAP on the bottom of the page. [ iplus3.exe, size 59.3 MB] ( temporary accessible )

    When downloads are blocked, allow the download and select the download again.
