Have you gone on to your internet providers website to find out if there are any problems to the moment?
Also is it just the internet thats slow or is your computer running slow too?

My laptop is running very slow on the internet, A box has appeared to say that there are 49 open connections. What are these and how do I find them .


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.

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.

Hi i have realtek RTL 8187 wireless adapter, and when i watch in my antenna managing program, connection is quality and signal streght about 80% THATS GOOD. always was good connection, but now yellow and...


somebody is accessing your wireless network and getting free internet service from you unless you had setup a wep security! if you have an un-secure network then anybody with a wireless adapter can access your network and access your internet free and drag down the speed of your internet connection.
however, if you do have wep enabled and there is more than one computer connecting then this will slow your connection down as well. please remember that there are some games and gaming sites that are bandwidth hogs and will slow down other computers connection on the same network. also watching streaming videos and gaming at same time can slow down connections as well.

Cant appear youtube.... plz help me how to fix it


YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.


For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:

1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible


2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.


3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.


4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.


5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner RegInOut cleaner and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

Youtube Buffering is so slow


There could be a wide variety of reasons for slow buffering times.
1) Your area could have alot of people on youtube at the same time, causing the local servers to be overloaded.
2) You could have slow internet capabilities with your current internet service provider.
3) You may be using an out-dated web browser, or have too many plug-ins installed.
4) You may not have sufficient ram on your computer.
I would recommend using a browser such as the latest version of google chrome for fast speeds watching flash, and you could try certain software to speed up your video watching speeds, such as http://www.videoaccelerator.com/. And you may want to check out that your internet service provider is giving you good download speeds.
I hope that helps!

Internet speed slows to a crawl making it impossible to access


Unless you have been infected with a virus, it is otherwise impossible to give you a definite answer.

Many problems associated with this, excluding viruses, are due to limitations imposed from your ISP due to excess usage, P2P blocking by your ISP, or other ISP problems.

Hardware causing this is very rare.

I recommend you scan your PC thoroughly before contacting your ISP to discuss the problems.

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 192.168.15.1 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.
