Not getting speeds I am paying for... Even during NON-peak

Q: Not getting speeds I am paying for... Even during NON-peak

Hey everyone,

I have been having trouble with my network. I recently, (2 days ago), upgraded my cable high speed internet service from 2mbps down and .2 mbps up to 15 mbps down and 2 mbps up. However, even during non peak hours, pretty much all the time, the best download speed I can get is 4-5mbps. My upload speed stays where it should, at 2mbps. It is really only my download speed I am concerned about, because this happens every day all day. When I first upgraded the service, I got 12-13 mbps download speed, so something must have happened between then and now where I cant receive that anymore. My modem is a doscis 2, not 3, so I am not sure if that has anything to do with it. It is an Arris TM602G/15 model.But as I said, I have received close to the full download speeds before, but not anymore.

Any help? Thanks!

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.)

Try contacted the service provider again ? They should have technicians to be able to check it for you. Could also be a line problem, did you add anymore lines to your cable lines inside ?

How are you testing it, where ? Did you change any other settings on PC. Windows does all optimizations for you.

Try resetting the modem, unplug it for 15 seconds, then plug back in. Or unplug and reboot PC. Usually a way to reset the modem back to factory state, need to check your service providers website for your model modem to be able to access it's settings. Usually you type in an address in your browser to access it.

Hello.

I'm hoping you can help me. I subscribe to Comcast's Blast internet package, which advertises 50Mbps download speeds and 10Mbps upload speeds. If I plug my computer directly into my Motorola SB6121 modem, I get the advertised speeds. However, through my Belkin n300 router with a wired connection, I only recieve download speeds of about 28-30Mbps. How can I best fix this? I was getting normal speeds with my old internet package (25/5) so I doubt it's a problem with the computer. Any insight you can offer is appreciated.

Thanks.

A:Slower than I'm paying for download speeds through wired router.

Replace the router. The Belkin n300 doesn't rank very high on the reviews.

Recently in the past few days my load speed for webpages has been sporadically terrible. Sometimes it will be fine, but other times it will take absolutely ages to load the page and then sometimes not even load it at all, and not load pictures, etc, as well as online streaming, which has always been fine for me and something I used to do often with no lag, has been lagging and buffering nonstop.

But meanwhile, even when the load speeds and stream speeds are horrible, my ping and general internet performance outside of browser-based things seems to be fine. I can see constant ping on one program and it has always reacted when my internet is poor, spiking high or just generally showing high numbers, but it always stays low, and I can see just based on reaction speed on internet programs as well as experience no lag whatsoever on online games that the internet speed seems to be fine outside of browser-based activities. I have tried different browsers, and this problem persists on my laptop as well as my new and fairly decent PC so I don't think it is a computer problem.

I've even tried booting into safe mode with networking and loading pages and when it is bad it remains bad even in safe mode, failing to load even pictures on some websites.

So I can't understand why the internet would be so poor sometimes when surfing the internet and yet at the same times that it is poor it is fine elsewhere. I can play an online game and not lag whatsoever while loading a we... Read more

My computer has extremely slow download speeds, upload speeds are fine. Ping is always at ~10-20ms. (to Google) The problem has nothing to do with, my ISP, my router, my type of connection. I know this for a fact.


I've tried multiple network adapters. USB WiFi, integrated WiFi, connecting through another PC via ethernet, they all give the same result.

I'm guessing this is a problem with some software on the PC itself, as it seems to not be a hardware problem.

All other devices on the network have perfectly fine speeds, including Ethernet and WiFi connected devices.
I also cannot connect this PC to Ethernet, would take hours.

Any ideas on how to fix this?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

A:Slow download speeds, Fast upload speeds. Other devices are fine.

In device manager check the status of devices under Network Adapters

Hi there, i was wondering if you could help me this problem i've been having for the past 3 days now. I recently downgraded from Vista to XP, and ever since then i've had download speeds of 5kb/s or less. Before now, i couldn't get onto anywebsites because it would time out, things like www.yahoo.com would take about 5 minutes to open properly. I did notice that when i was asked which partition to install XP on there was 2 sub partitions on the C drive for some reason. Anyway long story short, i managed to fix it by using the format option from booting the pc with the vista installation disk, then put xp in etc.
So, browsing speeds are normal for me, but i can't get on my online games because it just times out due to the slow download speeds, and anything large in size takes extremely long to download even with internet download manager, I've been waiting 10+ minutes for windows live messenger to finish downloading and installing and it still hasn't done so.
If you could have a look at my hijack this log and let me know what you see wrong it'd be much appreciated thanks.
Not sure if this is to do with a virus, ran AVG, Malawarebytes etc and they haven't picked anything up.

My new HP laptop 15-ac114nx [Intel Core i3 @ 2.00GHz, 4GB RAM, 1TB HDD] running Windows 10 64 bit has a serious wifi problem. Ever since I have bought the laptop Wifi internet speeds seem to be comparitively very slow on battery than when plugged in. I have a 20 Mbps connection which provides a reasonable browsing and download speed on all my other devices. The issue with this laptop is that when running on battery and connected using wifi even opening a webpage such as facebook or youtube takes an awfully lot of time lets say like 5 to 10 seconds and sometimes much more, whereas if I do the same with the power cord plugged in, the web pages appear as soon as I click their links(i.e. Vey Fast/Instantaneously).  To add further clarity to the situation I tested the download speed of a particular file while running on battery and with the cord plugged in. I started the download of a file [Java Development Kit ~ 160MB] using chrome with the cord plugged in and navigated to the chrome downloads page to monitor the download progress. The download speed was about 1000-1200 Kbps. Midway through the download I removed the power cord. Immediately the speeds dropped down to 20-30Kbps and sometimes even much lower.  After approximately 10 seconds I plugged the cord back in and wow the download speed went back up to approx a 1000 Kbps. After sometime I removed the cord again and as a result the speed dropped down again. Plugged the cord again and it rose back up. NOw this c... Read more

Hi guys,

I've recently bought a new computer, and it's an issue I've had with another Windows 7 desktop that I purchased before. Unfortunately, when I fixed it originally, I don't exactly remember how because it was after hours of frustrating trial and error.
Anyways, the issue is that while all volume levels are set for peak output, the green/grey volume bar is only going up about halfway. I have been told to check all settings, check my speakers and reinstall my audio driver; however, none of them have fixed the problem. I have plugged my speakers directly into my iPod and they work fine, and I've tried different music-playing software, and the same issue persists.

If anybody has any ideas on how to fix this problem, it was be appreciated.

Hello, I have a brand new HP Probook 430 G3 which is working and performing just great, the only problem is its strange cooling fan sound. The problem is that it speeds up and speeds down constantly without any visible reason. (Please note that its not a normal behavior when coolers change speed based on higher cpu temperature). The interval between speeding up and down is less that a second and it is constant. So just imagine when cooler runs on higher speed it's not smooth as supposed to be but kind of waving/floating.  I'm not sure with speeds laptos fans run, but if visualize the problem it will look something as illustrated below    Steps taken: Updated the BIOS to the latest version - didn't help. Turnet the "Fan Always on while AC Power" - sounds same. Can anybody suggest anything to diagnose the fan issue? Mayble there are some fan diagnostincs tools available or something else what can help.  Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Hi all, this is a doozy that I can't seem to solve.

When I have my laptop hooked up to my router via ethernet, my download speeds are around 15mbps. When I'm wireless (and three rooms away from the router), it's around 18mbps. Obviously it's not a huge difference, but I know that there SHOULD be a huge difference between the two, but in the other direction. What could be limiting my wired capabilities?

For the record, the ethernet cables I'm using may not exactly be ideal. For one, an ethernet cable connects my router to the modem, and that's an old ethernet cable that came with an Xbox 360 back in 2008. The ethernet cable I was using to connect the laptop to the router is the same kind from the same scenario. They say Category 5 on them, so I imagine they aren't Cat5e or anything. Wondering if an aged, slower cable connecting the router and modem would just be hindering my speeds overall, plus the question about wired being slower than wireless as opposed to significantly faster.
 

A:My wireless speeds are faster than my wired speeds!

I know that there SHOULD be a huge difference between the twoClick to expand...

Why? What's your ISP's advertized download speed?

An aging ethernet cable could be a problem. The only way to know is to compare with a known good cable.

are you sure you haven't got your upload and download speeds backwards? your uploads should be low and downloads high.

Hey everyone. Yesterday I saw an add with verizononline.com that says I can get dsl for 34.95 instead of 50.00 a month. I called and asked the lady and she told me that the only thing that would change is that my download would now be up to 1.5 instead of 768. My upload will remain the same 128.

IS THIS GOOD?

I mean obviosly it sounds better but what if they are trying to give me the royal screwjob. I hope my dsl doesnt become unreliable and slower.

I hope they didnt add me to some new type of dsl which is now shared unlike before lets just see and wait.

This may be an unusual problem, or maybe not. I am trying to pay an organisation in USA for a service related to publishing. The whole application and payment is done on one computerised form, which is straightforward, EXCEPT, that it will not accept my address and post-code (I live in the Highlands of Scotland). I have been in email contact with a member of the staff of the publishing agency, and he has given me every help, but nothing has worked. The form is straightforward, and seems to be geared for UK users, in that when I fill the box for 'Country', the box entitled 'Zip code' changes to 'Post code'.

This PC keeps crashing more times than you see crashes on the freeway. It comes in bursts. With the time between narrowing until it crashes during loading. Not the BSOD type - just flop - like the electrical power stopped.

Sometimes it seems like its overheated as reason (the temps though read normal).
Other more frequent times its just clicking on a folder - crash. Or scaring it by moving or scrolling the mouse too quickly - crash. As if the exertion was to much. Its not windows. I can reformat or grab another HDD & install win7x64 on it and thump - crash. Sometimes the critter will go for a day or three. Then it starts again. When it happened at the height of last summer the Repair shop claimed it was over heating. They were guessing. When I left it there it never crashed.

Recently the idea of purchasing some more RAM crossed my mind considering how cheap it can be now. After doing some searchin on google, i found mixed feelings towards whether or not you should have more than 1GB of RAM. I also started reading about the Windows Page file. I am running the following system: 3.2GHz P4 with 1GB of RAM. I download alot of torrent files but i am not a hardcore gamer. My question is why does it seem like windows is not using my ram to its full potential. The Peak always shows about 667236, and while i am currently downloading a torrent the page file is at 635MB. Should the page file not only be in use when you need to store more memory than u have RAM? What settings/modifications should I make for optimal performance, and should I get more RAM? I was thinking adding another 512.

At one point i disabled the Page File but Photoshop got mad. Is there anything wrong with disabling the PF, and should u when u have a certain amount of RAM?

Any guidance helpful.
 

A:Solved: Ram+peak+page File

Windows XP always uses the page file for low priority data regardless of how much physical memory is free. If you still have a lot of physical memory free while you are using as much of it as you ever would, you do not need to upgrade your memory. 1GB of memory is usually more than enough for any normal task. And no, it is not a good idea to disable the page file, as you found out.

Hi,

Does anyone know how to contact PEAK? I've tried googling them to no avail and they're not listed on the ATI site either.

I bought the card 2nd hand and when it boots into windows it has artifacts in the shape of pale vertical lines across the screen. Underclocking doesn't seem to remove this either.

I've got a 350W PSU but I've ordered a 400W incase it's a power problem (but surely underclocking would solve that?) and I've also ordered a fan in case it's a heat problem but the artifacts appear even after a cold boot so I'm wondering if the card has been broken.

If anyone has any advice or knows how to contact PEAK that would be most appreciated.

thanks

What are some tools that I need to keep my computer at "peak performance"?
So far, I already have the following:
MalwareBytes Anti-Malware
CCleaner
Smart Defrag
Advanced SystemCare

What else should I get?

A:Keeping my computer at peak performance?

Well, for starters, MWBAM is a Anti-malware/Security tool, not a performance tool. CCleaner and Smart Defrag are good choices for performance, I have never heard about Advanced SystemCare - if it includes a "Registry Cleaner", i'd keep away from it. Registry Cleaners usually do more harm than good.

Always keep an eye on startup programs as well (those can affect performance), and be aware of the limitations of your computer's hardware.

Outside of that, I think your doing fine program wise.
How do you feel the computer is running?

Please post your system specs as well.

I'm sure others will chime in.

I like playing Team Fortress 2 but I only get decent latency (~50 ms) outside peak hours (10 a.m. to 7 p.m.), at these hours my latency goes up to 400 ms. I'm wondering if is this is a problem inherent to dsl infrastructure or is it that my isp is worse than average. In Mexico City there are only about 3 internet service providers, Prodigy Infinitum from the country's telecomunications giant(and a monopoly) Telmex is the one I use.
Of course most of their clients use the internet for sending emails and web browsing so I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't care for providing a decent service for gamers.
How does everyone's isp perform for gaming?
 

A:High latency at peak hours

Most ISP's have you on a system with a lot of other users in your neighborhood. What you report is typical. You provider will provide you high speed and bandwidth at an increased price, and then this problem will go away.
We have performed a lot of work in Mexico City and certainly found a great number of providers... not just three... have you talked to repair services in your part of the city.
I do know that the costs are extremely high for service and support, compared to the USofA

hi

I have had the Windows 7 32-bit RTM for just over a day and find the Aero Peak too slow to display the thumbnail images.

My computer is quick, with 2.2 Core 2 Duo, 3GB RAM, Nvidia Geforce 8600m 256MB DDR3, so clearly my laptop isn't the problem. It takes about 1 second to display the thumbnails, I think that's way too slow.

1. How can I make it display thumbnails quicker? Which speed do you recommend?

2. Will changing the speed increase memory usage of Windows processes?

So I moved in December to a very small town. I got Cass Communications cable internet 15mb dl for $100 a month which is a terrible price for the speed but it's the best I got here. It was very very consistent internet, always right around 15-17 speeds with no packet loss and was great for gaming/streaming. Well now they have doubled the speeds to 30mb dl and it's great during the day when no ones using it but come 8 pm central it is absolute garbage. Without fail at night it slows to a crawl.

I don't know what to do at this point. I have contacted their tech guy and told him and he said their were some noise issues or something and that it should be better but it's not. From 8 till 12 am it's useless, streams buffer and gaming is impossible since your ping is about triple what you're used to and fluctuates so much you can't even tell what's happening in multiplayer. I have contacted him again asking him what we can do to fix this and he said "Your modem is on probation so we can look at it" or something and now he's ignoring anymore emails i've sent. The only other option I have is a 6mb DSL service that's pure crap too. Is their anything I can do?
 

A:Internet terrible during peak hours since upgrade!

I don't understand what "modem is on probation" means. If it is your modem then investigate to see if it is a problem. Is it DOCSIS 1, 2 or 3? I'm not sure what the actual maximum downloads for those specs are (you can look them up on the web), but an old (five years or more) or DOCSIS 1 modem may well be the issue. If it is the ISP's modem then you need to get them to investigate/solve any modem issue.

Otherwise there is nothing you can do except keep pestering your ISP. Speaking from the experience of having ISP issues for months and months (now working fine for three months) use various channels. In addition to calling there may be (sometimes difficult to find) ways to chat or email. If you don't get anywhere with a given chat session try again the next day because the rep will almost guaranteed be somebody different.

Be that as it may, it is difficult to keep up this solid routine in our bustling timetable. To improve size of muscle while keeping fat levels to a base, you definitely need to prompt high nitric oxide level.

Hi I am running Windows XP SP2 and have a adsl broadband with a Belkin wireless modem/router. I have just bought a Peak Wireless Network Camera (model 3531CLPK330W) which has an inbuilt web server which can feed a video stream to the internet without needing an attached pc. You just configure it with the pc after connection to the router and then let it get on with sending out video irrespective of if the pc is on or not. The stream can be viewed on any web browser with Active X or java.

OK, I can connect it fine to my network, the router assigns it an IP number and I can view video fine on any machine within my network of 4 pc's. At present, for example my main pc has network IP number 192.168.2.2 and the netcam 192.168.2.4. My ISP IP number (Dynamically assigned) at this time is 86.30.20.33.

I have asked various people online to check the camera's IP number but (not suprisingly being a number on my network) they cannot see it. As I say, it works just fine within my network.

The netcam is configurable vis web browser controls and has various options regarding TCP numbers etc that I am reluctant to interfere with until I have a better idea what I am doing.

Can anyone advise me how to configure the netcam so it can be accessed from the internet?

Many thanks
 

A:Peak Wireless SOHO Netcam problem

Is your Web IP address (sometimes also called WAN IP, external IP, etc), i.e NOT the 192.168.. IP address a static or a dynamic IP address? You'll have signed up for one or the other with your ISP.

I suspect it is the latter; thus from time to time (the frequency depending on your ISP) it will change, hence the name(!), and your external users will have difficulty accessing your webcam.

Your either obtain a static IP from your ISP, these tend to cost a couple of quid more per month, or you can stick with the dynamic IP address, but you can sign up to a Dynamic DNS service. This will allow you to obtain a name for your site/webcam (e.g. fred.domain.com or whgatever) and the DynDNS serivce will keep your name current with your dynamic IP. You will find that www.dyndns.com, or www.no-ip.com (to name but two, there are many others) offer a basic free service that may meet your needs. You'll need to run a little program on either your router or a PC on your LAN that periodically notifies the DynDNS service when the WAN IP changes: some routers have such software as standard, or your can check your DynDNS providers site as they often provide such software for download.

Your friends need never beinformaed of the WAN IP numbers; you just tell them the memorable name you configured up with the DynDNS provider.

The 192.168... are private LAN addresses and are not routable over the Internet.

Hello everyone, I recently bought a SSD and installed W7 64-bit on it ( 2 weeks ago ). Ever since when my transfer rate reachs more than 1+MB/s internet cuts out on the WHOLE house.

But I have a 60 mpbs connection and can't even profit from it ... I never had such problems. I would also like to solve this problem without reinstalling Windows because I heard erasing data from SSD's is bad (?) .

Hey guys, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to look at this post. Anyway, I'll get right to the chase, just recently I have purchased the Motorola SB5120 modem and the Linksys WRT546 router, the reason being is because my old modem was extremely out-dated and we needed an easier way to connect my two other computers. All has been working fine until this past week or so, and it seems that my modem just likes to go into a standby state, by itself, from 11 a.m. until 8-9 p.m. central. This will occur regularly about every 5 minutes to an hour for the entire day, the "standby" mode will last for only about 10 seconds, usually just long enough to kick me off from whatever I may be doing at the time. The modem says its working fine though, and even the Cox guy said it was running at optimal performance. At first I believed it to be just some minor difficulties with the network I setup for my family, but that wasn't the case. I've tried resetting everything and just starting from scratch but nothing works. We called the Cox Support team, again, and again, I was told to reset everything. If anyone has any solutions, please let me know. Thank you.

Greetings All,

Hope this is the correct forum. I just recently purchased an off lease HP NC6230 laptop pre-loaded with XP Pro SP 2. The laptop boots ridiculously fast and all programs operate flawlessly. My question is more out of curiosity than anything else as I don't have any issues...yet. I want to make sure I don't have a possible future issue that will cause me to have to reinstall XP or do something else and thereby lose all the programs I'm about to download/install.

Only because I recently added memory to my other HP laptop and my older Dell Dimension desktop am I now more familiar with Task Manager. So the first thing I did after booting up the NC6230 was check the task manager. I have 2 GB RAM and my concern is that the Peak Commit Charge right after startup is at 1.8 GB. My other HP laptop has 2 GB and, even after using programs all day, maybe hits 1.2GB. Same with the Dell.

It's not causing a problem but I can't figure out what's loading. There's barely anything running in the process list - the program totals don't come close to the peak charge. I did the usual cleanup in MSCONFIG startup but there's nothing there really. I then did a safe mode boot up and the peak was around 400K so there's definitely something loading or causing this "spike" during regular boot.

I've read tons of threads about similar issues but not where the safe mode is so much less. I wouldn't even sweat it but my oth... Read more
