How old is your computer? Do you have any other computer in the network? Your system resources may be low or the setup could be the cause. You can try disabling the startup programs from msconfig tool and also doing a disc cleanup. If you have any other computer hooked up to the same network, check hows the speed on that computer. Also scan your computer for any spyware or viruses.

Welcome to Fixya

Hi. As what i understand the MC760 alone can connect to the internet without connecting to the router. This device will act as a modem right away. This is the one of the device where you will put in a simcard to connect to the internet if i am not mistaken. You need to download and install the software of for this device and creat a dial up for your to be able to connect to the internet. Here's the link where you can download the driver and the procedure on how to create Dial up.

Thank you for using Fixya!

My mobile is nokia 5800 music express. so i want to connect internet through my pc


First of all, install the Noki Pc suite on your computer, connect the phone in Nokia Mode, you'll see that your mobile is a Modem, Open the Internet Connection and set your nokia modem as the default modem, create a dial up connection using the Internet Connection wizard, you'll need the number to dial, this number is to be obtained from the Network Operator. Now you can connect to the internet using your phone. Note that the speed will be slow as compared to normal (wired/wireless) internet connection. Good luck Thanks for using FixYa.

As soon as i went from a 'B' to a 'G' router, my internet has slowed dow , worse than dial-up


The Belkin Wireless G Router lets users share files and a broadband Internet connection among their computers-without using networking cables. It features 802.11g technology that makes accessing files and networked peripherals-such as hard drives, printers, CD-ROMs, and DVDs-easier than ever. 802.11g technology provides you with networking speeds nearly five times faster than the current Wi-Fi (802.11b) standard. An integrated, 4-port 10/100Base-T Ethernet switch also allows you to connect wired computers to the network. 802.11g technology is the easiest wireless network to implement. The Router uses the wireless 802.11g 2.4GHz standard to offer you 400 feet of wireless coverage. 802.11g technology is backward compatible with the 802.11b Wi-Fi networking standard, so it allows you to implement faster wireless technologies in combination with existing 802.11b Wi-Fi networks.

so if use "g" type router the speed cannot be slow there may be some other problem....that let the internet speed down....check that......
