I'm having a problem with my download speeds. I don't have an ultra high connection, just 1.2 mb/s. My speed tests confirm that is exactly what I'm getting, but when I actually download something , it goes to 155kb/s and will go no higher. I've contacted my ISP and they say it's my computer. The speed test is showing what it should but I just can't get past 155. I've ran several malware, spyware and virus tests and they all come out clean. I'm at the end of my rope. Don't have a clue what to do next to get my speed up. This is what shows on IPCONFIG/ALL

Preferred Solution: Actual download speed problems but good ping and speed test

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

11934 kbps download
1567 kbps upload

How do I figure out the Mbps?
 

A:Are these good download/upload speed test results?

Mbps is Kbps divide by 1000. If you want to convert Mbps to Kbps, then multiply by 1000.

So:
11.934 Mbps download
1.567 Mbps upload

I recently upgraded my internet service and found that speed test results from speedtest.net and speakeasy.com were giving me download results that were ~ half of what I was supposed to be getting ( 9Mbs vs 16Mbs). I called the ISP and they suggested I restart in safe mode w/ networking and run the tests again. I did and the results of the test were surprising. I was getting the 16Mbs download speed that I signed up for. The tech suggested that I may be infected with something. I run several free programs (Mbam, avg, avast, ect.) to try to aviod these things, but it seems as though something may have gotten through. Any help that you guys may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Btw, no error messages and I am running Windows XP. Thanks in advance.

When comparing speeds, remember to divide your speedtest result by 8. 0.89 mbps is around 101KBps.

Download speeds depend on many factors, inclduing the modem/router, traffic through your ISP at the time, and the type of download, just to name a couple.

What type of download is it? Are they torrents? These can often be slow.

Are downloads slow from everywhere?

You mentioned video buffering; Do you have downloads going at the same time that you are trying to view a video? Are there other people sharing your connection (eg other family members)?

You didn't say if you had tried rebooting the router/modem, or if you had been in contact with your ISP. These would be among the first things to try.

As you haven't stated what you have tried, I'm going to assume none of the following have been tried. Apologies if you have tried/tested the following.

If you plug a phone into the same wall socket at your modem do hear any noise/static or is is sound quality very poor or low... Read more

A:Ping mismatch between speed tests and actual in-game.

Hi Condiments and welcome to W7 Forums

Lots of factors come into play when it comes to Ping times. Firstly, remember that the value that you get at any particular time is what it is AT THAT TIME, i.e. Ping is a dynamic variable. Secondly, it depends on the load at both the destination server and any intermediate servers in the path between you and it - in other words, the more players connected the greater the load. Thirdly, your time of day and how many others are sharing your line (the contention ratio). Unfortunately, most of these are beyond your control (except, perhaps, the time of day that you choose to play). You could try logging out of the game and logging back in again, to see if by doing that you get any improvement (possible, if a different route between you and the game server is established).

Hi Newbytinkerer, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Assuming you made a typo and you mean 500 KBs instead of 500 Kbs (highlighted in the quote above), that's about the speed you can get.

It's simple conversion: 4.5 Mbps (Megabits per second) = 550 KBps (Kilobytes per second), the key here being the difference between a capital B (byte) and small b (bit).

Regarding download / line speeds, each Mbps gives you roughly 122 KBps (1 Mbps = 122 KBps). One byte is 8 bits so dividing the Mbps with 8 you get the same speed told in KBps.

Verizon says that their test show that they are downloading to me at a speed of >1,000 MB whereas their speed checker (on my PC) says I am receiving at the rate of only 420-470 MB. They say that there is nothing wrong with their telephone lines and that my PC must have a large file or something that is taking up too much of my memory and that I will have to delete this file or shutdown the program to get the full speed. I get this slower speed even when IE-6 is the only major program I have running (with anti-virus turned off). Their comment about too little memory seems plausible because my machine takes a long time (1-2 minutes) to return to normal after my PC-cillin anti-virus software updates.

Does this sound reasonable? If so, how can I solve this problem? If not, is there another place I can find and correct this problem so that I can get the higher speed?

I have an ~6 year old IBM PC with 256MB memory and an Athlon 500 processor and Windows 98 SE. I'm not an expert and therefore will appreciate a little hand holding.

Thanks very much,

Hi guys, I have recently (10 days ago) changed ISPs and have been getting good speeds as opposed to what I was getting with my old ISP. I have Netmeter on my PC which tracks bandwidth usage and also shows in real time the speed of downloads. However, when downloading something such as a torrent, I am getting about 3mbps reported from the torrent programme, but 4mbps reported by netmeter. I am not using the internet for anything else apart from downloading the torrent. I am wondering why there is a 1mbps difference between the actual download speed and what netmeter is telling me I am getting.

Could that extra 1mbps be being used elsewhere? I'm not sure what it could be, steam is closed, itunes is closed, web browser is closed, no other things are being downloaded. I would expect that if netmeter says 400-500 kbps that my torrent programme would also be reporting the same number, but it is staying at 300kbps. Any ideas, or is netmeter just over estimating the D/L speed?
 

A:Discrepancy between actual and reported download speed

Just a quick input:
Doesn't torrent programs also upload data? Perhaps that is where your missing 1mbps is going.

Edit:
I'm not familiar with Netmeter, but I know that some (cheap) programs actually treats the upload and download as the same thing, and instead calls this "Network speed" or "Network flow".

Hi everyone and thanks for taking a look at my problem.

About a week ago, my internet has become extremely slow. The speed tests show good results but nothing will load! It took forever just to get here. It is only slow on the internet, and I did virus scans, ad-aware scans, and spyware scans. Nothing came up except some tracking cookies.

I've noticed that when it is slow the link light on my modem is solid, it is usually flashing. I also have a router but I've had it for a while and I haven't changed anything so I don't think that is the problem.

If someone could please help me out that would be great.

ive been havign a problem with my internet for the past few weeks, i have had an extremly high ping, making it imposible to play video games on my xbox 360, and making it imposible to use websites like youtube, however my download speed remains uneffected.

my ping can range from 400 all the way up to 5000

i was wondering if something within my network could be casueing the high ping,

my modem is connected to a linksys router, which connects to sevral computers downstairs, also it is connceted to a long ethernet cable to my bedroom where a ethernet hub splits to two cables one for my xbox 360 and one for my pc. would this cause a proplem with ping?

The rated 15mbs is the max the wire is capped at. What you get from other sites (like torrents) is determined by the number of people seeding the torrent and their max speed. You will probably never get anywhere near that speed from a torrent, even with download accel, etc. Thats just the way it is.

There is an alternate source of similar material to torrents called usenet. One usenet I have gotten as much as 100Mbs download speeds. google it

For once I am posting a solution instead of a problem. I had complained to my ISP about a hesitation and speed issue. They agreed to upgrade my service from 15 to 25 Mbps. However when the guy was here to check the system he got that increased speed on my old Win 7 laptop, but could not get it as high with my new Win 8.1 much faster desktop PC. Ping time ranged from 40 to 56, and I was getting about 21 for download and 2.8 for upload. My laptop was doing about 7 for ping, 23 for download and 2.8 up. This is using the Speedtest by Ookla. He was unable to solve the problem but said he didn't like Windows 8.1 and Windows 7 was much better. Haven't we all heard that before.

In any case I did some Google searching and found similar advice - blame it on Win 8.1. I then stumbled onto a very accurate response that nailed the problem for me. I thought I would pass it on for those who may be having similar issues, or just want to tweak their system to best internet performance. Go to Control Panel, Device Manager, Network Adaptors, and open your adapter. Under the Advanced tab select Speed & Duplex. I found mine set to Auto Negotiation. It appears that this Auto Negotiation can slow your ping and even download time as it seems to take some time to get the negotiation done. I manually set my speed at first to 100 Mbps Half Duplex (which is what the poster said worked for him), but for me that didn't work at all. I then tried 100 Mbps Full Duplex, and Bingo. Ping time improved to 6 ... Read more

A:Win 8.1 Very Slow Ping Time and Reduced Download Speed

OK, now I am posting a problem. I have discovered that when I shutdown the computer and do a cold reboot, I loose the benefit of making the Speed & Duplex change from "Auto Negotiate" to "Full Duplex 100 Mbps". Ping times go bad again, and upload speed is reduced. When I go in and manually change it back to Auto and then back again to Full Duplex, my fast times are restored!!!

Any thoughts on what is going on?

Since yesterday, I've been dealing with a suddenly reduced internet download speed, it's extremely frustrating. I have tried changing cables, restarting router by unplugging power and plugging it again after 10 minutes, a soft and a hard reboot directly from my linksys router (192.168.1.1). I have tried flushing DNS. It seems to be shifting back and forth. I am running "ping -t www.google.com" in the background and it clearly fluctuates, high ping, low ping.

As for internet speed, on steam it shows it's %20 of what I am supposed to get. Very seldom has it reached what it's supposed to be. This started yesterday when I was downloading a Samsung Software Update and noticing it takes a while to download just 1 MB let alone 1 GB.

It started about two days ago, I was using this connection for ages now. The download speed seems fine at the moment but my ping goes through the roof.
I tried restarting the router, I have no process running in the background stealing speed or any of that stuff.
 

A:Relatively fine download speed, extremely high ping

Maybe you should move closer to your router, or it could be your firewall slowing down your ping. You could also use a wired connection (like a Ethernet cable) if you haven't already. Also, did you do anything to affect your connection those two days ago? Or did it happen out of nowhere? Make sure to scan for malware or other malicious software on your computer that could be messing with it. Most people here ask for ipconfig/all, it usually reveals the problems of your connection issues. So make sure to put that in your thread soon. You can also put your PC statistics as well for us to see if anything would be incompatible with your computer and router.

Hi I was wondering if someone could help me out. I use Virgin Media in London as my ISP and the past week the internet has been running really slowly on my computer, which is not ideal as I play online games.

My ping has been around 150ms most of the time and it's normally below 30ms but a few times a minute it's spiking up to 10000 and frequently disconnecting and reconnecting.

I ran a speed test through Ookla today on my computer and the ping was 146ms, the download speed was 2.3 Mbps (I pay for 100 Mbps). When I ran the exact same test on my phone straight after my ping was 17ms and my download speed 60.49Mbps, so I'm starting to think the problem might be with my computer. In both cases the upload speed was around 5Mbps.

Has anyone got any suggestions on what the problem might be? I'd be really grateful, thanks a lot!
 

A:High Ping and Poor Download Speed on Computer but not Phone

Is your computer(which you didn't describe) using an ethernet or wireless connection?
Is it running Windows XP or Vista or 7 or 8.1 or 10, 32-bit or 64-bit?

Go into the Device Manager and expand the Network Adapters heading.
What's the exact names of the devices listed there?
Open the properties window for those devices and then select the "Driver" tab.
What's the exact driver version listed there?

Is the any cheaper or free solutions to put a Internet speed test on my web site.

Hi all,
I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but it's the closest I could find.
I have Qwest Broadband DSL at 5mb, which is the fastest speed offered in my area.
I ran some speed tests online, and most results are at about 1800kbps download and 600kbps upload.
Is that normal? I don't even know what 5mbps is in terms of kbps.
Also, the ping seems pretty high at around 100.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,I have just bought new hp notebook 17-x014nm (i3). It was free dos so I installed win7 64bit. Friend of mine (since I'm an amateur) installed bunch of drivers and it all seemed ok (except problems with spontaneous changing display graphics, I was told because it has AMD & Intel graphics, or something like that... but he fixed it)Now I see that wifi connection is extremely slow - when I try to download it's 70/80 kbps, although signal quality is excellent and speed is reported 48 Mbps. I tried it on other network, it's the same. And this new laptop (8GB RAM, 256 SSD...) is supposed to be much better then the old one, but the old one was much faster. Could it be something with wifi driver? Or any other idea how to fix this, please?

I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system.

Hi guys. I hope you can help on this issue I've been having with my internet connection, I don't know what to do...

I resently formatted my harddrive because my internet all of a sudden started being very slow but after the format it's still the same issue. Now I've tried plugging the connection line into my laptop and there there's no problem.

I am gettin' a slower download than upload...

I have a 10mb download/1 upload speed LAN connection. I ran a speed test on the same connection and on my stationary it shows like 250 kbs download and like 750 kbs upload, while on my laptop it shows like 8 Mbs download and 750 kbs upload... so what's the problem?

So far I've found out that it has nothing to do with the internet connection line or my NIC (I tried a brand new one and it was the same issue), it's not spyware or malware, it's not fragmented and under internet connections it says that I'm connected on a 100 Mb network card and there are no problems with any of the devices?

However I can see that if I open the job list, the download connection is very unstable going from up to 750 kb for a breif moment then falls to a halt at 0 kb... and moreover it says that I'm not using any percent of the network?

I'm on windows 7 and haven't had any problems before this, the rest of the system works just fine, but not the internet. If I try and download something it won't get higher than like 50 kb and then may... Read more

Hi.

I have this very annoying problem and I'm really out of hopes. I don't know what to do anymore. I'll make a summary of the problem and will be as concise as possible

So I have this Dell Inspiron N5010 laptop with a broadband connection (direct cable, no router) and 3 weeks ago I reinstalled my Windows. Everything went well until 2 weeks ago when the internet speed went down, dial-up like. Pages won't load, and if they do they load just partially. I called my ISP and they said they had no problem. I couldn't find any solution so I thought maybe, some sort of virus or spyware is doing this so I formated the whole hard-disk and did a clean install of Windows.

Unfortunatelly nothing changed, the download speed is the same. Here is a speedtest.net evaluation:

http://www.speedtest.net/result/2276053238.png

Drivers are up to date, no windows firewall, no antivirus and no windows update. The ISP support guy told me to deactivate IPv4 and IPv6 from Local Area Connection, but nothing changed. I did a TCP/IP reset which raised my down speed to almost 1 Mb, but after a few minutes it went back to "dial-up". With the down speed being the same, Speedtest sometimes shows me upload speed in between 50-70 Mb which is unbelievable (I will make a ss next time I see this).

And the very weird thing is that I have another netbook (pretty weak config, Intel Atom CPU, 2 GB RAM) and with the same cable it has normal speed (the kind of speed I had on this Dell too). An... Read more

Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months.

The desktop in question uses Vista 32-bit and the Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter.

Set the MTU in the router itself to 1492





Analyzer is saying that my MTU is 1460, but in my router and in my NIC it is 1500Click to expand...

the normal value for DSL is 1492, and 1460 is INVALID = = must be a multiple of 8.

Manually set {1472 or 1464} in the router.

The article cited has good info but I would opt for all the defaults.

restore:

netsh int tcp set heuristics enabled
netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
netsh int tcp set global rss=enabled

see this article to set SackOpts=1

RELEVANCY SCORE 83.2

All of a sudden while browsing, I get insanely slow loading times, with multiple timeouts. I go on speedtest and this is my speed. I get random latency spikes during video games. I could barely upload the picture of my speedtest results, and I'll be surprised if this thread even makes it. What is happening? How can I fix it? Thanks

I've tried disabling all startup programs and rebooted, nothing
Restarted router, nothing

I have a Belkin Enhanced Wireless Router F6D4230-4 V1

A:Download Speed Fine, Upload Speed Non-existent?

Reboot and check your speed again.

How can you have a Custom Build and not know what motherboard you have.

Use this little free program to find out what your system is.
