Super fast connection, super slow video streaming

Q: Super fast connection, super slow video streaming

I live in South Korea. The internet here is unbelievably fast. I've done 3 speed tests tonight, and the download speed averages between 20-40mbps, upload speed between 40-75mbps. However, when I try to watch streaming videos online, it's ridiculously slow. And it's not just one site. It seems to be all of them. Youtube, Comedy Central, BBC, and MSNBC have all been really slow. I notice it the most around 10:00-11:00pm here (only because that's when I come home from work), which is right at the same time most Americans are starting to go to work. Is it possible that the United States 9-5 workforce uses up so much bandwidth on their morning rounds through the internet that it could devastate my access to streaming video here?

A brief synopsis: The majority of videos I try loading require an obscenely long buffer time (upwards of 20 minutes for a 2 minute video). Not always, but usually. However, oftentimes YouTube will only buffer the first 20% or so of the video. So after I play it for a little bit, it inevitably catches up with the buffer and I have to wait again. Even video quality as low as 240p still sometimes takes an awfully long time to load.

Does anybody have any theories? I was able to watch the presidential debate earlier today live just fine (10am here, 7pm Denver time). Am I just trying to play videos at peak bandwidth times? Are there any ways around this? Could there be another explanation? This has been a rather consistent problem since I got internet a few weeks ago. It has definitely made my online video watching much more irritating, if not outright impossible. Thanks in advance!

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.)

Americans use the Internet non-stop round the clock, so that's not the probable reason. I think your ISP is throttling your speed for videos sites. You should contact your ISP and complain.

We recently got 100Mb fibre optic broadband from Virgin Media, but it's been 2 days now and various speedtests report only 2-3Mbps. Other computers around the house get around 20Mbps (none have 100Mbps).

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron N5110, so it's not old, and I run both Linux and Windows 7 (dual boot) - neither OS gets more than 2-3Mbps. I've also tried moving to various spots around the house, to no avail.

I also tried downloading a large torrent (legal) with thousands of seeders to see how fast it would download, and it stuck at around 1Mbps, never any faster.

Why is this? If we're paying for 100Mbps, surely I should expect more than 3Mbps? Other computers on the same network get 10 times this so the issue is with my laptop?

My connection used to be lighting fast now its really slow and sluggish. The cable company claims the network is fine and that the slow down is not caused by more traffic.The tech support guy thought it might be a problem with my router or cable modem, Any suggestions?

Ok, im having problems when i try to install Windows Xp pro. I been using it since it came and never had problems, but now after i decided to format my pc after been some time since my last format (also was acting kind of slugish), the typing cursor blinks super fast, the time clock on the desktop goes very fast too, each minutes goes as if it were seconds, when i do the ctrl+alt+del to see the cpu usage, its always at 100%, the light at the pc tower that shows when the hard disk is reading/writing blinks very fast, and if i try to double click an icon on the desktop nothing happens, the only way to open the icon or make it work is by right clicking on it. I even reformated hoping for the problem to be solved and still got the very same problem. I was forced to install a copy of Windows Me i happened to have on the mean time. Any ideas or any clue what could be wrong?

Good day

OK so I have 18GB of free space left on my C drive. I scanned my computer with superantispyware, malwarebytes, AVG Free Edition, and this online scanner http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/ All came up clean except for 1-2 Ad-ware. I defragmented with Defraggler. I used CCleaner. I used Disk Clean. I deleted all movies/programs I dont need.It is still superslow. It wasn't as slow, but still slow, before I downloaded AVG Free Edition. Also, the CPU Usage flares up to 100% fairly often and then sometimes jumps down to 0-30%. The CPU Usage History graph shows flares all the way to the top for some time sometimes.

So then, I upgraded my internet plan to a 50M plan (at long last ><). I have a Dell xps 15z (Centrino N-6230 and Atheros AR8151 Gigabit switch). When i'm close to the router I get 50M download, 28M upload but when I'm further away my speeds drastically decrease to 11M whilst my upload remains at 28M, weird.

But that isn't the big problem. On LAN, my internet speeds are horribly wrong. I get a 28M upload which is good, but my download dips to 8M, max getting up to 12M. But if I use the same LAN cable on another computer, it gets a steady 50M down, 28M upload. It's been bothering me.

What could the cause be? >< I'm desperately trying to fix this! Could anyone help? Help would be amazingly appreciated!

A:Fast upload, super slow download?

1. Hmm... being close to the router gives you 50Mbps. (I'm guessing Wi-Fi?)
2. Connecting to LAN speeds are wrong (I'm guessing your connected to the router using the ethernet port?)
3. Other computer (Is that computer using the same router?)

I kind of want to say that your router is the problem. But also it could be that your computer is somehow lowering your internet speed. Any difference now?

Hi all,

First post, looked around here first, got Speccy and filled in my specs - if you need more please say.

PC built and supplied by Quiet PC 18 months ago, always super fast and always started up super fast. Few days ago I thought I noticed it slow to boot up, but as I usually turn it on and then do something else I didn't think about it again. Last few days I've paid attention to the boot and it's taken way longer. Only changed I can remember recently were changing from Chrome to Firefox and there was a Windows Update - but I'm pretty sure it started before then.

Steps I've tried so far:
Deleted anything installed recently
Removed any programs causing errors in Event Viewer or fixed the problem (some of those removed: CCleaner, Firefox, all recent Adobe updates)
Disk Clean up, Defrag, Disk Check (the thing where you right click the HD and Check now...)
Appreciate any advice. Rest of the machine seems to be running ok, but I'm worried this is the start of something.
-Edit-

In case it helps I've just restarted and noted what happens.

What used to happen was Power button > brief Quiet PC screen > brief Windows logo > Desktop

What happens now is Power button > brief Quiet PC screen > brief Windows logo > black screen with the mouse pointer for about 60 seconds > Desktop

A:Super fast boot has become painfully slow

I would do the following.
Run a full anti virus scan
Download and run a scan with malwarebytes
Run a scan with eset online
A negative from all 3 would be a good indication that it is not malware.

Run in safe mode. If you boot up satisfactorily.
Follow the clean boot procedure to solve your problem

Hello, I am using a Dell XPS M1330. Recently I did a clean install of my OS (Vista 32-bit). Before the install my computer was running fast and drivers were all working and whatnot. But after the clean install I am plagued with problems. Specifically,

1. Computer Start-up takes ages, and while booting after the initial load screen there is a pause where there just shows the basic windows background with nothing on the screen (background is not my set desktop) for about 30 seconds before continuing to load windows and desktop.

2. After clean install my computer is right off the bat super super slow. Running even one program, such as the internet is difficult and the pages open super slow. Windows explorer files open so slow that I can see them open in slow motion, from top to bottom. Before the OS reinstallation this was not a problem and my computer could run many programs at once at high speeds as it is supposed to do. I have tried updating drivers which doesnt seem to help at all.

3. I have an NVIDIA 8400m gs Graphics card, but after the clean install I am not able to update the card to the latest drivers from the manufacturers website. The installation seems to be going fine until it fails randomly.

3. The M1330 is known to have overheating problems, so I use a program called I8kfanGUI to force the fan to high speed. But since the clean install, the program will not connect to the fan to speed it up. In fact, the fan doesn't seem to speed up at all even when the c... Read more

Thankyou for sorting out my Desk top. (From which I am writing this.)

Now, my office laptop has gone on strike. It is an HP Pavillion XP. I have already downloaded HihackThis and the Analyzer, to C:\ HJT, but I am not sure how to disable the 'system restore' to begin the log.

It was going slow before I took a short break, and yesterday, having taken an age to start up, it then kept sticking. At one point I timed it taking 3 mins to open the menu from 'Start' and then another 7 mins to open the 'Programme' menu!

I did an NAV Update- 3 times -as it would not install after downloading. So, I followed the Symantec site advice and downloaded the Intelligent Updater direct. Then I ran LiveUpdate again. I assumed the virus updates would be complete, but they ALL updated again. But, this time successfully. Then I did a scan, but all was OK. I noticed, however, that the laptop was working much better after this action, at least it IS working.

Recently, (before this) after failing to download SP2 on Dial-Up, the hard drive crashed. I took it to a 'PCDoctor' had the disk backed up, and they re-installed from the CD QuickRestore System Recovery, before re-installing from the backup copy. (In fact, I had to return it to be re-done as they had obviously used their own CD not my original one.)

Just recently got rid of spyware from this computer. It was running just fine. I downloaded spyware guard, snoopfree, & zone alarm on my system. Didn't seem to have any problems. I went out of town on Saturday and when I tried to use my computer on Sunday, it acted like it had crashed. I reset my monitor, first and a pop up floated on the screen that had something like no connection found. Then I rebooted my computer without any problems. No sign of the pop up that was floating around before. However, my internet connection browsers (IE & Mozilla) & Outlook Express have been extremely slow, sometimes taking over 5 minutes to load webpages. My email has sometimes stalled and had to start over again and I get 4 or 5 of the same email.
I uninstalled spyware guard, snoopfree, & zone alarm, hoping they were the cause of my slow internet connection. NO such luck. I called my service provider (cable connection) and they report there have been no problems with the connection in my area.

So Im having a few major issues with my pc directly following a reformat.

Specs:
Intel I-5 3.4 ghz processor
msi z77a thunderbolt motherbord
8 gb ram
Nvidia Geforce 660
asus pce-n15 11n wireless card

A couple different issues is making it difficult to figure out if these are issues with my computer/router/modem/comcast. First i cannot get a LAN connection. It says a network cable is unplugged in a 100% working ethernet cable. When going into device manager it shows there are no missing drivers. I did however use a driver genie and it listed several as not "up to date," but due to complications never updated them. Either way this leaves me with just my wireless internet. Although i hadnt been using wireless internet much before the reformat, it seemed to be running okay. Streaming Netflix through playstation would never buffer, etc.. I dont know if its coincidence or not but now its often difficult to stream netflix buffering over and over. dl speeds on computer usually ranging from 0kbps-100, then every so often shooting up to 700 or 800 kbps. This is the same internet a month ago i was downloading 2mbps+ on wireless. Seeming like its probably my modem or router, but maybe comcast too? How can I tell?

Thanks for all your help in advance!

Ye' o' gods of the Tech Support Guy Forum-

We've got Comcast Internet hooked up to a Linksys wireless router. The connection has been really, really, really slow these past few weeks. I thought it may have been because of our lack of a WEP config and others were stealing our bandwidth, but I just implemented a WEP configuration, and it's still as slow as a snail! Perhaps it's a spyware program that is taking up resources??? Here's the HijackThis log... thanks in advance!

Hi,

I've been going crazy getting my Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop Vista 64 bit to work with the internet. I tried multiple wireless cards but they only gave a speed of 1,000 kbps. So I tested an ethernet cable and it showed a speed of about 3,500kbps. I kept testing different wireless cards and then testing the ethernet cable to compare speeds. After a few cards I decided to just get a 50 foot ethernet cable and be done with it.

I inserted the cable today and got a speed over 3,000 kbps I then uninstalled the wireless card and then took out the wireless card hardware. When I turned the comp back on it was telling me to click ok to find an ethernet driver or something. I did but it could not find anything. So even though the ethernet card worked fine before now it is super super slow where I can't even use it.

Does anyone have suggestions what to do. Do I need an ethernet driver...where can I find it? Below are my specs. Thanks for any help!

Dell Inspiron 530 Desktop
Linksys WRT54G Router (Wireless-G Broadband Router)
Intel 82562V-210/100 Network Connection

Windows Vista Home Premium
Service Pack 1
Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2180 2.00 GHZ
4.00 GB RAM
64 bit operating system
GeForce 8800 GT Graphics Card
Norton Internet Security

A:Ethernet Cable Connection Super Slow

I just went through Device Manager >Network Adapters> Intel 82562V-2 10/100 and clicked on the driver tab. I clicked update drivers and it said I had the most up to date drivers.

Driver Date: 1/14/2008
Driver Version: 9.12.16.0

So it doesn't seem like an ethernet driver issue.

Inside of games, my computer is awesome. Once the game is over, nothing is fast.

OS: Vista is infamous for its constant annoyance to the user. This is somewhat unlikely, but it could be Vista slowing you down. I recommend upgrading to Win7 regardless.

Processor: The processor seems alright, so you're not having troubles there.

RAM: You may want to consider a RAM upgrade, as many applications (including games) do tend to stick around in memory until a restart. I'd have to say the lack of RAM is your issue. It shouldn't take much more, maybe another 1GB-2GB should fix it up.

Graphics: Nice graphics card, by the way. Beats mine ._.
AntiVirus: Well, the fact that you're careful on the Internet does NOT protect you from viruses. Not at all. I strongly recommend installing Avast! Also, I recommend installing MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and give your computer a nice scan with both of them.

My fiance and I are in the same room as the wireless router. My computer is hooked up to the ethernet itself, no problem there. Our roommate is in another part of the house (far away from the router), and he says he's getting insanely fast internet. My fiance's laptop (which is the Compaq F700 duo-core laptop running Vista) was working great for a week or so at this house. Then suddenly one day she comes home from work, and her internet is running like it's hooked up to 28.8k. If she hooks up to the ethernet, the connection on her computer is amazing.
So...
- Roommate's integrated Wifi is working GREAT from far away from the wireless router
- Problem computer is ten feet from the router itself and getting terrible speed
- Definitely connected to our network (with a unique name)

So as far as I can tell, the problem is not our provider, not our router, and not range. It seems to lie solely with the way the wireless software (or possibly hardware) is set up.

No one changed any settings before this happened, but the computer is set up to update automatically.

If anyone has any input that could help, we would be incredibly grateful. We're at the end of our ropes on this one.

Well i got a i7, 3.3ghz, 500gb black western digitals on mirror raid, top shelf video card and 4GB of ram since i'm stuck with 32 bit windows 7 because of some software i need to use.

I was expecting it to be blazing fast, especially considering that I come from dual core 2ghz laptop.

It's nothing special and lately (the OS install is few months old now) is infact being pretty slow. (no viruses or stuff like that)

Is there a way to analyze and find the bottle neck in the system? I guess most will say is the RAM but i'm using it mostly for web development, and none of the software is too heavy. Residently open apps are stuff like Chrome, Thunderbird and few other light ones.
The ram usage is at about 70% and the cpu clock is jumping from 1 to 3 ghz with load most of the times at few %.
When occasionally i need to open MS word, excel photoshop or dreamweaver they really take their time to load. And often even jumping between programs is laggish.

Any advice?

A:My new PC that was supposed to be super fast is not that impressive...

mirror raid is for protection from HDD failure.. only reading speed increases a bit.. i dont know why you are running a RAID1 on home pc maybe it has some very important data and only backup is not enough..
the best way to improve your system speed, is to install SSD for your OS and most uses software.
the other is to look for software/hardware problems. because your specs seems ok.

After playing around in W7's safemode, i noticed its super fast and responsive, its kinda like Ubuntu 10.4 by default, but i need Windows gaming support unfortunately.
I know all the typical tweaks like using classic mode...etc, but nothing is still as fast as Safemode..is it possible?

Also, has anyone here experimented with all the Tweaking applications out there? I'd like to know a really good one that can maximize my performance, there's just so many and System Mechanic is fine n all but it really doesnt speed anything up that i can tell.

Last question, what do you guys think of this:

I think i'd like to try it. i dont use hardly anything that comes with W7. all i use is games and Firefox with occasion for video/photo editing. So seems if i could remove some of the clutter, it might run faster?

Even though i have a quad core, 6 gigs of ddr3 and the fastest SSD drive in the world supposedly, W7 is fast, but not snappy like Safemode nor Ubuntu 10.4 with compiz and all the glamour. So any thoughts on the subject are appreciated. thanks

Trying to help a friend here but not sure of where to go next...

For years he had normal broadband ADSL running at about 10mbps and with that was able to use his PCs and iphone etc without too many issues - occasionally the smart tv would judder when watching a film but nothing too serious. He then upgraded to Talktalk fibre and then things started to go downhill. Voip calls would judder whereas before they had been perfect and the speed measured by a popular on line tester would show speeds ranging from just a few Mbps to very high speeds - even when nothing but a pc was connected. Having spoken with talktalk and got nowhere he decided to change supplier and is now with BT but the issues appear to be the same. Although promised superfast and capable internet connections he was actually better off with copper!

I cannot think of any good reasons why he should be having these types of issue - other people I know have great fibre connections but in this case there appears to be a real issue - but exactly what? Noting has changed in the wiring of the house - the same access point has been used throughout - only the routers supplied by the ISPs have differed.

1) Are there things we should be looking at?
2) Is there anything the provider cold be doing to test this?
3) is there anything that could be tested in the house?

My wife came home from work and found the internet wasn't working, so she thought she should shut down the computer. When she tried to restart it, and almost every time I've tried to restart it since, it beeps 5 times then the fan starts running very, very fast. It continues to run fast, and the ethernet LAN lights are on in the back of the computer, but nothing else happens. There is no signal to the monitor, the mouse cradle doesn't light up, nothing but an extremely fast fan blowing lots of air out the back. One quick push of the power button turns it off, (i.e. it doesn't have to be held in for 5 seconds to turn it off.) A couple of times it has gone through the same routine, but without the super fast fan.
I have a Dell Dimension 8500, about 4 years old, that has been running flawlessly until now. I upgraded to 3 gig RAM about a year ago, and installed a better graphics card. I also installed a wireless modem a couple of years ago. Other than that, it's all factory stuff. I'm running Windows XP Pro.
Since I can't get to the initial routine, I don't know how to diagnose the problem. Any suggestions out there?
Thank you in advance,

My computer is in my room, and understandably, I put it in sleep mode every night before I go to bed in order to cut down on the noise. I also have a "scheduled task" that plays an mp3 in the morning (an alarm clock type of thing). I do have this task enabled to wake the computer. I then turn off my screen to minimize light in my room. (yes, i am one of those people who must sleep in complete darkness and silence)

On a typical morning, my computer will wake out of sleep mode and begin playing the song. Usually, I will get up, turn on the screen, turn off wmp, and then go back to bed. Needless to say, the alarm clock idea hasn't been working, but either way, my problem persists.

Unfortunately, a half hour to an hour later, while I am sleeping, my hard drive starts spinning very loudly, and very fast. I wake up and go over to my computer. The screen is on from when I turned off the music, but nothing is being displayed. As a matter of fact, it is acting like it is disconnected from the computer while powered on.

In this stage of the problem, the keyboard and mouse do not work. They are still getting power, cause all the lights are on, however, my computer will not respond. CtrlAltDelete does not have any effect, nor do any other combinations. I try to hit the sleep button on my keyboard again, that has no effect.

Hello

I am interested in starting my own YouTube channel for gaming, comedy sketches, etc. I need to invest into customising/building a new PC including the hardware and software. I would need to be able to edit videos, play console and computer games with good graphics, and the ability to withstand the running of multiple programs at once.

Also is there any guideline as to the financial outlay I should anticipate.

I am not ashamed to admit to being an absolute newbie to this and do not know a lot of the lingo used.

If anyone could give me a basic guide on what I need to look for when buying and customising a gaming/video editing PC I would be very grateful.

Thanking you

A very lost Soul.

Im using a microsoft wireless mouse wheel to scroll through web pages on IE9 and win 7.
I set its speed to the lowest possible in control panel and it works fine.

When i restart my laptop, the speed is back up to full when i scroll, but when i check in control panel >mouse settings, the speed shows that its still set to the lowest setting. I move the slider, click apply and it works again.

Anyone got any ideas on how i can get my mouse wheel speed to be consistent between reboots?

A:Microsoft mouse wheel speed goes back to super fast after reboot

Did you right click on the desktop and select personalize, then in the left column select mouse pointer, there is a tab for wheel that will allow you to select how many lines for the wheel and other attributes for the mouse. If you have tried that, see if the manufacturer of your mouse has software that can adjust what the mouse does.

For some odd reason, in the past 4 weeks, my streaming video has become VERY slow, and I do not know why. I have a high-speed cable connection, the same I have had for the past 6 months. It is slow, sound-with-stil-images and/or constantly rebuffering, and this is true with WIndows Media, Winamp, Realplayer and even Flash videos (on YouTube for example). I cannot take it anymore. I tried this Hijackthis thing, and this is my log:

You didn't say if you ran any scans before posting the log. If not run these online scans:

And you should post in the Security forum not here.

I got a netgear router earlier this year (wireless G I think) because I wanted to use the PS3's wifi capabilities rather than resort to a long bulky ethernet cable spanning across my house. Until a few months ago, my connection was fantastic... I never had a problem EVER online. Then I stopped playing my PS3 for a while and when I came back to LittleBigPlanet (which I'm told has laggy servers anyways) my connection was TERRIBLE. I couldn't find games, I couldn't join games, and when people joined my games, they disconnected soon thereafter. I tested my connection on Borderlands and it was equally as slow. So recently I decided, "fine I'll just go wired" and it worked great for a few hours. My connection speed was 15+ mb/s and it ran smoothly. I tried wireless once more and I got about the same reading ~13mb/s. So I went wireless for the night and it worked great. Yesterday I tried again... 1.3mb/s so I figured, "Meh, I'll just go wired again for a bit". 8.2mb/s wired... Barely worth it since I could join games but it took forever to connect and when I did I would often disconnect.

ANYWAYS I am using a PS3 80GB model which is "A fat one shaped like a foreman grill" as I have heard said. I am using a Netgear WGR614 v9. I really don't know anything about internet connections but my PS3 is roughly 20ft away from my router and always read 100%. The thing that trips me up though is that my PC connection is very good ... Read more
