Nokiac1 mobile modem internet very slow how to increse speed in pc

Sounds like you are using a cellular modem. Internet through the cell phone network is usually always going to be slow, nothing can change that other than making sure you have a device that supports 4g and you have 4g signal. Anything else is going to be slow and the lower the signal the slower it will be.

Slow internet speed

your internet may be slow due to following reasons
- Your ISP (internet service provider) may be having issues with routing signals to you.
- Your browser memory cache is so full, your browser has to slow down to allow for its limited hard drive space.
- You might have spyware/malware infecting your machine, and secretly using your Internet bandwidth.
So You need to optimize browsers and internet connection.
- First of all update the browser
- Disabling The Firewall
- Remove unwanted tool-bars and plug-ins
- clear temp files
- Deactivate background running services
If you are unable to perform above tasks then use a single utility tool like PC Fresher that will not only fix windows errors but will also optimize Internet.

There are two methods to fix this problem. One of them isto manually modify your registry and another is to use third party registrycleaner and PC optimizer software. Manual modification is not recommended as itis complicated. You may opt for second method that is to use third partyregistry cleaner and PC optimizer.

My hp laptop has slowed to dialup speed. How can check to see if its the directv modem, netgear router or laptop?

There are two common reasons that a pc slows, 1, if you have downloaded several things to your PC ie: programs, games, music, and/or pitures. This eats memery, even if you dont run them at the same time. Solution upgrade you memery stick. 2, You have regestry issues, ez to fix just buy or download a reg fix program. I like RegCure my self. How ever I see that you have a satilite internet connection? Is this correct? The problem with satilite is that it is faster than dialup, but not by much, yet still much slower than DSL. or Cable and connection and speed is affected by weather. If satilite is all you can get in your location then try one or both solutions. My suggestion is to get a better internet provider first, DSL if Cable is not available. Good Luck hope this is helpfull.

My dodo wireless broadband is very slow

Not necessarily modems fault. How old is your PC and have you added anything lately that might slow it down. And have you run a virus scan lately?
Virus and worms can slow you down as well as not enough memory.

Green blinking internet light on verizon westell 6100 modem.

Yes. When you power down the modem you are suppose to power down the pc. That is what the machine tell you before you get a tech person. It could be that your cache is getting full causing slow speeds.

Two questions one about Internet Connection and the other about Windows Update

Dear sir, Please disable automatic updates in your windows settings, it will slow your connection speed. I have seen that your connection speed is slow, i.e. updates are not possible online.

Speedstream modem extremely slow

Try unplugging the router for 30 seconds, that usually does the trick for me. If not, you may have a software problem on your PC...spyware, etc.
