Goodday, this is difficult to analyze without further information: Did you change anything on your computer? How old is it?
Are you using Wifi or a cable? Be aware that download speeds also depend on the server on the other side, so even if you have the fastest fiber internet, downloads from a slow server may take more time.
Did you check your speed with a special program or website? Search for a speedtest online and try how fast your connection is.
200 mbps means that a 700 MB movie / CD image would take about 28 seconds to download.
Check the bits and Bytes converting about how fast your connections should be.

Good luck,

    Goodday, then where did you experience the slow download speed? Downloading what?

  • gihan senarathne Jan 03, 2018

    The problem is my computer is not using that full speed or at-least half of it. when i download a film or watching a full HD video on youtube can see that issue( Take too long to download), when i check under task manager-> performance-> Ethernet, shows only 20mbps or 30mbps(maximum)

    amisset,,,, please give me a reply,,,,,,,,,,,

  • amisset Jan 07, 2018

    That is then probably the max speed from the server at the other end.

Hi, This might be because of virus in your system, or the browser you are using is not up to date, last your antivirus is online just blocking all spams and malwares.

Runs slow on video downloads

Hello Sir,

downloading speed depends on internet connection not on PC specification.

If your transfer is low then downloading will also be low.

Take note that source from which you are downloading also must have reliable connection.

How do i stop the cam from making me look slow when i video cam on msn messager

this problem can be caused by:
  1. your web cam being unable to cope with a high frame rate ( this is unlikely)
  2. your internet connection speed is low
  3. your computer is running to slow to prosses the web cam information
  1. if your webcam cant handle high frame rates, then the only solution is to buy a new, higher quality web cam
  2. if your connection speed is low, then close down other programs that use the internet, eg internet explorer or multiplayer games
  3. if your computer is running to slow to prosses the information, then close down any unnessesery programs, for example games, internet, or even word and exell
good luck, please take the time to rate this solution

Ethernet speed changes from normal to zero

If you have high speed internet go to your ISP webpage and do a speed test. If You are paying for say like 10 MEGS and are only pulling 1.2 Megs. It probably is your modem. Your speed will slow down to approx 7.5 behind a router. Also Your ethernet cable might need replacing. might also might try resetting your router. disconnect all power even the cable comming in and reset everything. Hope that helps.

Fiber-optic networking

Apply load balancing of the NIC interface, else put in a switch to interconnect all the computers. That should give equal speeds to all the PC's.....sodeep

Slow internet.

Your hub can support more that fiber optic puts out. Problem might be a slow computer. Run a internet speed test see what it gets through hub and then straight to the computer bypassing the hub. If possible. If there is a big difference either way what ever is slower is most likley the issue.

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.

High Speed and viruses

Slowness can be caused by viruses.

Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.

But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.

If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.
