It takes a long time to load internet pages and often hangs. My internet connection speed is reasonable it at 128kbps.


I would do 2 things. First scan for viruses. You can download Malwarebytes free HERE. Install it and let it update then run a full scan. Second download Ccleaner HERE . Install and run the cleaner which will remove junk files and temp files including your temp. internet cache and cookies amoung other unwanted junk that slows down your computer. This should speed up your connection unless you have a hardware problem which would be difficult to diagnose online. Good Luck!

I am using tp link td-w8901g router.my internet speed is of 384 kbps for which i have to be able to download at maximum 48 kbps. when i use internet normally, i am having slow browsing. the download speed...


If you are paying for a downlink speed of 384 Kbps you should be getting at lease around 300. First bypass your router - connect your cable/DSL ethernet line directly from the modem to your PC. Go to http://www.auditmypc.com/internet-speed-test.asp run the speed test and see what your download speed is.

If it's less than 300 call your service provider & ask them to check out your line. If they say that you are getting 300 Kbps or more, you have a problem with the ethernet card in your PC. Replace it.

Of course, if your speed is OK when you bypass the router, you have a router problem. Contact the manufacturer or replace it.

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.

I have dialup. i can't download or playback music


Check with your local ISP (Internet Subscription Provider) if they have a wireless modem/router so you can connect to the internet wirelessly.

They will be the one to configure your internet settings.

Happy surfing!!! ^_^

I just got a notebook laptop. On my desktop, I


if you want to use them both together than you will need to share the internet connection by using ICS - but on dial up this will be very slow that also assumes you have a network adapter in the desktop I would see if you can get a broadband connection and buy a router
I the laptop came with a dialup modem - then you can use the same settings as the desktop to dial up

Just purchased a pc. i am using dial-up. do i have to have dsl to use my pc (wireless)


Yes....there is hardly nothing that you can use dialup for now.....only used as a backup for most businesses. Most photo, videos, music will take hours to days to complete using wireless. Dialup runs in kbps where wireless runs in Mbps. You might want to consider using broadband if you really want to use dialup otherwise you won't be able to get a good internet connection.

PLEASE VOTE IF THIS WAS HELPFUL..THANKS AND GOOD LUCK.

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.

RE: router problem


You're welcome. anything to help out.

I'm sure you still have the phone filters installed.
So,
Run a speed test from here.
Then, compare it to the speed that you're paying for. For ex., you might be paying for a 1500 Kbps download and 256 Kbps upload.

If any speed (upload or download) is lower than 50 Kbps, call your service provider and tell them that you are not receiving the reasonable speed you paid for and that you have already cleaned your "cache" (they will suggest that you clean several files from your computer but that does not affect your speed).

Thank you for responding. Its rare for people to respond to helpers.

Low download speed


Ok this is a simple problem, each month you are allocated a certain amout of downloads. Could be 1 gb, 2gb, 5gb etc, you have gone over you allocated download amount. When you go over you download limit you internet speed gets dropped from 256kb down to dialup speed - usually 56kb or 64kb. You should be able to check out with your internet provider when your downloads get reset.
