Why is my computer so slow to connect to internet web sites


I would try to connect using a wired connection instead of a wireless connection to see if the speed increases. Also go to Speakeasy Speed Test and run a test to see what speed your internet is really running at.

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.

How are you connecting to the internet?
1. Wireless
2. Wired
This can have an effect on the speed. A wired connection is not subsceptable to any interference and wont slow down from it.
A wireless connection can be slow because of the router, other things that broadcast radio signals, other things that broadcast non radio signals (like flourescent lights.)
How are you testing the speed? Unless you go to a website that has a speed test program or you are running a speed test application, there is no way to know for certain that your speed is what you believe it is. Your speed can also change due to the amount of people on the internet and other things like equipment failure outside your house.

Why will my Acer Aspire 5552 running W7 only connect to the internet when it's near the router? When elsewhere in the house, it shows 2 bars on the signal strength, but will not connect to the rou


That means you have a crummy internal wireless card. Your best bet would be to purchase a USB wireless card and your problem will be solved.

Nothing on the internet works, it's really slo and constantly dissconects, everyone else in my houses computer are great wit the internet but mine is horrible.


are you connecting through wireless? how strong is your signal, if its weak then you will have these problems, I would suggest a wireless extender to give you more coverage, also check your power settings to make sure that your wireless isn't set to power-save. Also, clear your browser history and run spyware software, I always use superantispyware but there are several to choose from. Lastly make sure you defrag your machine at least once a month.

Hope this helps.

Can I setup a cable modem with a router


You can if the router is wireless and you have a wireless card in your computers. If not, then you will have to upgrade the router to a wireless and get wireless cards in the computers or run a cable to the 2nd floor

Slow connection


Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)

This sounds like a spyware/virus problem. Try running the computer in safe mode(With networking) and see if it's any faster. You should also run your Anti-spyware,AV apps to check for problems.
