How do I get more bandwith so I can watch videos without them stoping and starting.

First i will ask who is your internet provider? Do you know the speed of the internet you got? Remember 1Mbs or lower is bad for playing videos. I would ask your internet provider to up your speeds to 3Mbs but no lower.

How to increase your internet speed in a Windows pc by 20%

In this tip , we will talk about a simple way to speed-up internet easily.
With this tip your (daily) internet browsering will go a lot faster.

Because we all hate slow internet speed especially when it's not even hard to speed-up internet.
With this tip you will be able to speed-up internet up to 20 procent!
This because you now can use 80% and after speeding your internet up,
you will be able to use 100%.
And the best part is it only takes a few minutes to do.
This internet speed up tip works only with windows computers.
This is how to do it:

On a windows computer the operating system reserves 20 % of the bandwith to do things like
automatic updates. With some simple commands we are going to disable Limited reservable bandwidth and speed-up your internet!

Steps to speed-up internet:
First we are going to open the RUN command.
You can open the RUN by pressing: WINDOWS KEY + R
Then we will type gpedit.msc in run and ENTER.
If you can't upen RUN then search for
the application gpedit.msc in your computer.
After doing this there will pop up a window "Local Group Policy Editor"
When you are in this window look for: Local computer policy > Computer Configuration folder> Administrative Templates > Network.
You can now open QoS Packet Scheduler
When you have done this click on: Limited reservable bandwidth.
You are now in the menu where you can speed-up your internet.
To speed-up internet you have to do the following:
You will see the default setting as NOT CONFIGURED.
Click enable and drag the bandwidth percent to 0 and click then apply > ok.
The only thing you need to do is restart your computer and you will have speed-up internet by up to 20% !!

Yes it's really as simple as that. :D

Your Internet Requirements

One area is often neglected when a person is setting up a new network for the first time, or experiencing Internet problems. People get frustrated and disappointed because their new system that they just spent many hours and quit a few dollars on does not meet their expectation or does not even work.

People are caught in the marketing trap for high speed, multiple user networks. Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware. Whether it is a cable supplier of the Internet service, or, a phone line or a wireless network, they all have their sales pitch.

The first trap is the speed of the connection. The products are sold with various speed perimeters. One might proclaim they are the fastest with a 7meg download speed, another may show a cheaper service with 3meg speed. What the suppliers do not make clear is that these speeds are all pretty-much irrelevant. The customer should understand that they usually tell you the maximum speed that a service line can provide and reading further in the fine print you will discover this. The actual speeds vary even between customer locations of the same supplier. Most suppliers expect to provide the customer with a throughput of 75% of their signal maximum, but at times it may be far less than this.

When I tested my 3G wireless connection speed 2 years ago, it usually tripped out at about 1.6 - 1.7meg. Now I am lucky to get .8 on a 3meg. maximum. I have measured my speed down to 64k and 84k on this 3meg. line. As you know, 56k is dial-up speed.

Let us consider a copper phone line where a DSL service is offered. The original design of the telephone lines were never conceived to carry the high speed, digital signals that are running on them today. There are still arguments about this and the quality of the equipment that connects these line first to the main office and points between, determine the quality of the service. The latest of these lines have gone to fiber optic because it is much better for providing the digital service. Even this is a little misleading because some suppliers who have buried fiber lines neglect to mention that the "last mile" is actually copper to your house or business. You need to know this and understand the limitations to make intelligent decisions about purchasing

Another key to making an intelligent decision for purchasing is not only the speed but the bandwidth provided. Internet suppliers are putting limitations on the amount of data you can download. Where as your personal Internet usage may be fine with a 5 gigabyte maximum amount, tomorrow you may decide you want to start downloading full length movies and your usage sky rockets. Consider what will happen when you start a small business and all of sudden you have 15 people all trying to access the same line. Not only will you start splitting the speed up, but also your bandwidth usage will multiply. Suppliers have alternatives such as multiple IP addresses for businesses. Internet service can become an expensive business proposition that needs careful planning. I see questions all the time in the computer category where people are complaining about some sort of hardware or router problems, when in reality the problem may not be in their equipment at all. I have experienced customer support issues where an in-experienced person comes into their office and finds that they have no computers working. There is no IT person on hand and they start troubleshooting their network and calling for support. The real problem is their Internet Service is down and they have already torn up the network connections.

I have also heard a customer complain about not being able to see their remote video cameras data and are running 10 remote locations on 1 line. Their problem is that they had not researched their requirements for the Internet and rather than paying for adequate service, decide to do it the less expensive way.

The bottom line is not only how much it will cost for Internet Service, but will the service actually do what I need it do? Take time to research your Internet provider decisions and make them wisely.

My computer is very slow uploading how do i fix this problem please

You may need to provide more details on this. But...
1). Do you mean that your computer is slow BOOTING up?
It may be that you need to Upgrade your RAM (memory) because as you add more programs applications to your computer over time, many of them load up some apps into memory on computer start-up. One way out is to type msconfig.exe (Start > Run > msconfig.exe), go to 'Start up' and uncheck the programs you can do without on start-up. But best way is to increase Memory.
2). Do you mean UPLOADING files to the internet?
This will depend on the speed of your Internet Link, and / or the speed of the server on the internet you are uploading to. Try uploading to some other destination and compare. If it is slow generally, then you may need to contact your Internet Service Provider and ask for Uplink bandwidth increase.
Hope this helped.

The reason why this is happening is because the internet bandwidth may not be enough to stream the content at an acceptable speed. You can try to check if there is a lower bandwidth version of the clip but its unlikely.

If you are sure your internet connection can handle the video you are viewing, visit and run a internet speed test to determine your connection. Now compare this speed with the speed you are supposed to get for the price you pay. If this is way off, you may need to tweak your network connection slightly.

A site called DSL Reports has quite a few tools you can use to tweak your network connection.

If after using those tools you are still encountering a problem, you should contact your ISP and let them know you are having bandwidth problems.

Hi-speed internet

This is a good test of actual bandwidth. You would need to contact your isp to find out what speed connection you are paying for, you can then connect the two.
