My internet speed is really slow. What can i do to speed it up?


mcdevito75 here, Many things can slow up yours or any internet, Try this, from your desktop, click on RE-CYCLE bin and emty it, form your home page, right click tools (top of page) now cerefully, CAREFULLY read every word and delete cookies, and other items you really don"t need right now, check the box next to each item, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DELETEING ANY THING. After this, from your home page, type in search, Super Anti Spy Ware, they have a free version that I run every day to get rid of potential viruses and internet ads that slow up your computer, READ EVERY WORD BEFORE YOU DO ANTHING. If your not comfortable with doing these things with your computer You may be new to doing these computer functions, then from Start, lower left side of screen, click start, the Help and support, they too can help with internet speed. READ EVERY WORD BEFORE DOING ANY THING WITH YOUR COMPUTER.

My modem is very slow


Hello,

Run a virus scan on your computer. If your virus and spyware protection are up-to-date, the scan will detect any offenders and remove them from your computer.
Unplug your modem and wait a minute. Many times resetting a modem will fix the slow Internet connection.
Perform a system restore on your computer. This allows you to undo any harmful changes that you have made to your computer that could be causing the slower Internet.
Free up space on your hard drive. Routinely removing temporary Internet files and programs that you no longer use will help keep your computer running efficiently.Test your connection. Many Internet providers will allow you to use their site to check to make sure that there is not a problem with your connection.

Take care.

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.

Broadband


Sounds it is your modem. I had a similar issue with my old one. I had a westell 6100F and now have a 6100G that helped. My company had to replace about 150 of line about 1000 Ft away from my house. The cable was in a storm drain and it was getting wet and interupting my internat connection.

The modem is extremely slow-most downloads are far too slow


Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.

Transfer rate now slow


Try turning it off then wait for about 5 mins then turn it back on. If that does not fix it call your Internet Provider.

I keep losing my connection plus it downloads super slow


I have the same problem. I have narrowed the problem down to having too many simultaneous connections.I can surf all day long with no problem but when I start downloaded via a torrent or if I play an online game in a room with 32 players, my connection eventually grinds to a halt. No amount of tech visits to your house will ever uncover the problem because your line speeds and voltages will appear normal. Swapping out the modem for another of the same kind won't fix the problem because the issues appears to be inherent in the modem. When downloading torrents you'll have to limit the number of connections your computer will accept.
