Hello there.

It sounds like your computer might be infected with something, you should not be getting popups in this day and age :)

I would suggest 2 things, firstly you can avoid most of the problems on the Internet by using a safer web browser, either Firefox or Opera is much safer than using the included browser Internet Explorer6/7.

The second thing would be to run an online virus, trojan, spyware scanner such as housecall . This runs in your web browser and does not conflict with any antivirus installed on the computer, let it scan your computer and when its done it should remove anything found.

Doing this and using another web browser should speed up your computer which in turn should speed up your internet hopefully.

In firefox you can even install a plugin call 'adblock filter updater' which not only blocks adverts but stops them from even loading, this should speed up your connection some.

Try this and let us know.
Hope this helps.

My new conputer donwloads incrediby slow on DSL. How can I speed it up? I use an older laptop on the same DSL via wireless network which is considerably faster. The newer comnputer has a faster processor...


Complaint to your DSL provider for slow speed. As possible, integrate your RAM and processor. Download with DAP (Download accelerator plus) and install Google Chrome for fast surfing. Install a licensed antivirus or registry booster.

My Internet connection so slow?


<p>The type of Internet connection you use is the most important factor in determining your connection speed. The three most common ways to connect to the Internet from home are dial-up, DSL, and cable. If you have a choice, cable is usually the fastest, but both DSL and cable are faster than dial-up. <br /> <p>Many Internet providers also offer Fiber Optic Service (FiOS), which connects to the Internet using light over an optical network. In your home, you still connect your computer through copper wiring. The advantage of FiOS is that it can provide higher speeds than traditional copper wire connections such as DSL or cable. Some Internet providers offer multiple options, depending on the area you are in. More populated areas are more likely to have FiOS available. Check with your phone company or Internet provider for more information.<br /> <p>If you use a dial-up connection, there are a couple of good ways to optimize your Internet speed. First, use the fastest modem you can. The fastest modem you can use will send and receive information at a rate of 56 kilobits per second (Kbps). You won't get a full 56 Kbps speed most of the time, but with a good phone line, you should approach at least 45-50 Kbps. <br /> <p>Second, make sure that your phone line is in good condition. If the telephone wiring in your home or business is old or deteriorating, you might be picking up stray signals or cross talk from other phone lines. These problems will slow your Internet connection because the modem will have to send the same information over and over until it's transmitted without interruption. Check your telephone wires to be sure they aren't damaged, frayed, or twisted around power or other telephone cables. If you notice crackling in your phones, you might want to contact your phone provider to have them check the lines inside and outside your home to make sure they are in good condition.<br />

My DSL is terribly slow. I have grissoft and have tried that and also have done a disc defrag. What else can I do?


Run a speed test on your DSL, here:
http://speedtest.net/
When your test has completed, call up your ISP and see if this is a normal speed rating for your DSL. If it is and you are not happy with the speed, you should upgrade your internet to either fiberoptic (if it is available in your area), fast DSL, or cable internet.
Also post your results here and I will walk you through speeding up your computer.

DSL downloads are very slow


Your computer is fairly old and you also probably have a slow internet provider. You will either need to contact Juno and see if they have a faster service available or you will need to upgrade your computer. In either case, a computer upgrade would be very helpful.

Hooked up dlink to my dsl modem and hooked up the router. Since installing the router I have been having a problem with telephone incoming calls am getting a shrill loud noise and cant receive incoming...


With DSL the signal comes in through phone lines and using a DA converter. The router is nothing but a slitter.One input and many or 1 or 2 out puts. You should not use a router when a Phone is involved. Remove the phone from the router and plug it into the wall outlet whith the DA converter on it. I have this same set-up here. I know exactly what you are saying here!!!!

With broadband connected I can't hear a thing on the phone. We get lots of static, voices are very quiet. I have a phone line splitter on the line.


If you have DSL for your broadband connection, you need a filter on every phone jack. These filters are provided by your DSL provider

Lexmark x6150 unalbe to fax phone line is active using dsl


Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.

Jeff
