Slow Slow internet speed with Windows 8

Q: Slow Slow internet speed with Windows 8

Purchased Windows 8 Pro with a new computer system, an HP Envy, last week for work.

Have a dedicated 20 down and 20 up connection that is functioning at speed.

Loading internet pages with Windows 8 is incredibly slow. Had the very same connection with a 7 year old HP using Windows XP and the speed blew this away.

Help?

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.)

Slow pages are usually a sign of a dns problem. How do you have DNS configured? Are you using a gateway or router of some kind? Is that configured properly?

Hi guys,

2 Days ago I upgraded my PC and moved from XP to Windows 7 Enterprise x64. Everything was going smooth as butter, untill it was moment to use my internet. When I try to download something I get 50-60kb/s dl speed, 100 at max, while in XP my normal dl speed was around 5mb/s. I've installed all the newest drivers for absolutely everything, changed 3 lan cards, including the integrated on my motherboard, and all do the same stuff. My internet is super slow and I get disconnected every 5 or so minutes. I'm with a broadband (PPPoE) connection. I've heard there is a possibility my motherboard is faulty, because they were some mobos wich have problems with W7. My setup is this:

Asus M4N68T AM3 Motherboard wich on the box claims its "Windows 7 Ready"
AMD Athlon II X2 255 3.1GHz AM3 Dual Core Processor
2x2GB A-Data DDR3 1600G Memory Kit
500GB Hitachi 7K1000.C SATA II HDD
Sapphire HD 5670 512MB GDDR5 Video card
The lan card that I'm using in the moment is TP Link TF-3239DL

So guys if you have some suggestions, please post them. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

A:Very slow internet speed in Windows 7

Hi,
How have you obtained Enterprise?

I had this on ubuntu, it had very slow internet speed and dropped out on heavy internet usage. I am going to guess its the Ethernet card. It may be the fact your on enterprise.

I would be careful saying you have a business copy of Windows on forums like these.

'Enterprise software, also known as enterprise application software (EAS), is software used in organizations, such as in a business or government,[1] as opposed to software chosen by individuals' Wikipedia

I apologize in advance for this being a long post.

After trying many fix options, I decided to try a forum. I have internet through Xfinity. My internet plan is supposed to be hitting speeds of up to 200mbps (megaBITS not megaBYTES), yet on their official speed test site, my speed is at about 95mbps at its peak. I even bought a new cable modem, since I heard xfinity has speed throttles that slow down your speed on their modems they provide you with. So, I had a technician come to my house, he saw me run the speed test on my laptop. IMMEDIATELY afterwards, I watched him run a speed test on his laptop from the same website, and his speed clocked in at about 186mbps. In BOTH cases, on BOTH laptops, the internet connection was WIRED ETHERNET, and NOT wireless, and BOTH our laptops were hooked into my cable modem, and the speed tests were not running simultaneously. Difference was, he was running windows 7 on his laptop. I am running windows 10 home edition. He told me he has had 4 internet speed complaints in a month, and they were all from people who ran windows 10. He concluded it was an issue with my laptop or windows 10 itself.

My laptop originally ran windows 8.1, and I upgraded to windows 10. However, I'm fairly certain my internet speed was the same before upgrading to windows 10, if I remember correctly, but I could be wrong. So I'm assuming it's because of Windows 10, since the technician had twice the internet speed sitting right next to me. I would re... Read more

I have upgraded my OS from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After the installation the internet speed is slow down like a dial in connection (it is slow down if I am using wifi connection and it is fine if I am using a cable/wired connection). It is taking long time to load the web page (like google, gmail etc) and it is not streaming any video from youtube/netflix. I spend one day for fixing this issue but don't know how to fix this.
Please help me to how to fix this issue ( increase the internet speed using wifi connection)? or how I will revert back to Windows 8.1?

Few days ago, Suddenly My Windows XP started operating very slow. I uninstalled some program such as : AVG PC TUNEUP to reduce the load on the system. I also checked my Task Manager for pointing out memory eating processes but found none. My CPU Usage was dribbling around 0% to 3%. But PFUsage was near 788MB. Then I started searching for virus. Scanned with AVG, Avast, Zemana, Hitman PRO, Antimalwarebytes several times.
When they didn't solve the problem I gave a repair installation of my system to see what happens. It fixed the problem. But started again after some moment. I gave the repair installation once again and its running smoothly now.
I did some search over net and found out this problem can be connected to my harddrive. I scanned my Harddrive with HDDScan, Crystal Disk Info. They both showed error for

I recently built a new rig. I installed Windows 10 on the M.2 SSD, and installed Windows 7 on a separate SSD. Install went fine, installed all the board drivers and activated this copy of Win7.

The trouble: As soon as I try to download a file, the internet connection speed drops to nothing. I can browse the internet just fine. At first, I thought it was a problem with the Intel network adapter, so I purchased a USB wireless adapter, installed it, and, the problem persists.

I tried running speedtest, and the speed starts out fine, right where it should be, but within 15 seconds or so, it drops to nothing.

Literally, ANY file I try to download starts downloading fine, and then nothing.

I've turned off Windows firewall. I've tried running in safe mode with networking. I've uninstalled my virus protection all together.

I'm at a complete loss....any suggestions would be appreciated.

EDIT: Everything works fine on Windows 10, btw....forgot to add that.

I have two Windows 7 Laptops that connect to a Motorola SURFboard eXtreme cable modem SB6121. Suddenlink (cable provider) recently upgraded our network which gives 50 MPS speeds or more. I can only get 50 MPS when I disable wireless on my laptop and connect with a direct cable. Otherwise I get 20 MPS maximum speed. I borrowed a Windows 8 PC this weekend and was getting 51 MPS speed using wireless through the same modem. Any ideas of what could be causing this issue?

I found this helpful information on possible solutions, very familiar with errors on previous Microsoft operating systems. http://www.vandersluijs.nl/content/view/973/96/lang,enI uninstalled one of the suggested updates and so far it is fine, the update was only optional so no security threats. I think it has helped, not certain if it will be like a fresh install because windows is slower than it was two weeks ago. If 3 weeks is best windows can handle for being ready for a new install I may have to go back to Linux. I hope this thread can stay on this forum somewhere to help others follow the link I posted above for possible solutions to this problem, it will save them time and effort trying numerous things.

Hey everyone,

My computer has been very slow with regards to internet download speed. I had this same problem when I went to a website on my laptop, then after I went to it, very very slow performance. I do have ESET Smart Security which did block an attack from that site and I have not found any viruses using the program. However, I did reimage my laptop and it runs normally now. The trouble is now my desktop computer is doing the same thing after I visited the same site on my desktop and its doing the same thing. I also am running ESET on this machine and it blocked all of the attacks, ect from the site. Now, my desktop internet is running very slow! So, what I did was I did a HiJack this search and I came up with this logfile:

I just installed a Linksys WUSB54GSC Wireless adapter and am experiencing slow internet speeds. I ran a test at speedtest.net and was only getting 0.4 Mbps upload and download. I did the same test on another computer with wireless capabilities on the same internet connection and that computer was getting around 4.75 Mbps download and 1.25 Mbps upload. I've exhausted all the troubleshooting knowledge I have and really need some help figuring this out.

I've been having this problem for a while now, ever since I started using Windows Vista I've had a low internet download speed (not the amount that I'm paying for). I know this isn't a problem with my ISP because on my other computer that has Windows XP, the internet connection is just fine.
I've tried the following tutorials:
Auto Tuning - TCP/IP receive level
QoS Bandwidth Reserve Limit
Neither of them have resolved my problem.
My download speed is the only problem, the upload speed is "normal".
I'm paying for 8Mbps but I get 0.5-2Mbps on my Vista system.
I have my modem directly connected to my computer, through one of the two Ethernet ports on my computer. This problem has been going on for months now and I'm really getting frustrated with it.

Morris, welcome to the Vista x64 Forums

I've been doing some reading about your issue. There is some discussion about potential solutions.

1. If you're running any AV software, disable it, specifically Norton or Symantec.

2. Depending on your adapter, you may have to either update to the newest driver, or roll back to an older version.

Check on these potential issues and let us know if either of them help your situation. If not, we can continue to examine the issue, just let us know what your AV software is and what kind of adapter and router you are using.

Hey!

For the past 3 days I've been suffering with an unbelievable slow Internet Speed.

I know what is causing this; my father downloads on his PC which is in the room next to mine (We are on a Router) - I thought I had slightly fixed this by editing the values for the upload/download speeds on his and myselfs computer. He uses BitLord & BearShare.

Before Monday my Internet has been working fine, I'm an Online Gamer so it's hard to play games when you get a constant 1k - 4k ping and 2.0 - 6.0% packet loss because of this. It took me atleast 4 minutes to load up this website.

I'd appreciate any help on this matter, thanks!

Hey guys, last week my pc started to go slow, internet speed and also opening shutting things. I decided it was time for a reinstall using my disc that came with my machine.

I installed it as usual firstly wiping then reinstalling as the disc said so, but after installation, when i went on the net the internet speed was still really slow ? so new installation and still slow speeds.

I unplugged modem and treied refreshing it but still slow speeds, i thought it was the modem so called my provider virgin and who ran some tests all came back fine.

My brother has the same modem in his room as we both have seperate internet modems, so i decided to plug his modem into my pc and it was slow also, yet both modems run sweetly on his pc ?

Ive tested adapters to the modem and even changed ethernet cables with no joy.

I have also noticed once i unplug and restart the modem i get my full speed for about 2 mins then it gradually dies on me so if i start a download i'll see my full 20mb getting used then gradually drops to like under 1mb.

any ideas guys ?

A:Fed up tried everything, ver slow internet speed :(

i am getting close enough same problem as you. my download speed is fine but the upload speed on some areas are crap. i dont know why. virginmedia came back to me and said it was fine. i dont know what it is. i would like to know too.

If someone knows. please kindly reply.

this is 2 person with closely same problem. many more out there sitting quietly arent speaking up! LOL

Are you by chance using "homegroup" for networking in win 7? Homegroup sometimes on mixed networks causes slow downs and disconnects.

You can check it for yourself by setting up a new network connection using workgroup instead. If the problem goes away you can dis-able IPv6, and kill homegroup.
Let us know if you need help with this

Ok so I've had very slow internet connection (between 0.30-0.60 Mbps) when I'm supposed to be getting 10 Mega bits per second. I'm with Rogers and this has been ongoing for 11 days now. I've called their help lines countless times and so far I've it's not my router because I hooked up my lap top to the internet directly and tested the speed and it was the same. I've opened 2 tickets with Rogers both of which took 48 hours for them to work on it but they always just closed the ticket because they found nothing wrong. I've had a Roger's agent take control of my computer to check firewalls and setting and then again tested the speed and it was the same. I tried switching my modem for a new one and it still doesn't work. PLEASE HELP!!! Rogers is not being helpful in any way and they keep getting me to do the same tests and the same things over and over. I've also tried all these tests on 2 other lap tops and it's the same thing.

Hello dazsteeloman and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. I see no signs of viruses or malware in the log. It is clean.Running video over an internet connection is mostly dependent on the connection speed. If you have a broadband connection then your ISP should be able to test the line for true speed. Running video over a dialup connection will definitely produce pausing for buffering.For help with internet applications I suggest posting in the Web Browsing forum here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/14/web-browsingemail-and-other-internet-applications/ . They might have some suggestions or tools to test the throughput of the connection.Cheers.OT

I don't know much about networking, but can kind of understand the settings of a router. I have NETGEAR.
It all started when I was looking for a way of improving latency for my online games. I found that lowering MTU to 300-400 bytes (originally had 1500) would improve latency, but slow down internet speed (loading webpages). It didn't really work out for my game and i couldn't connect to my own router afterwards. However I reconnected to my router somehow and reseted the MTU back to 1500. I thought that resetting the MTU would make my connection go back to normal, but it didn't. I was stuck with slow speed, even tried resetting router to factory defaults. Now I don't know really what to do. Please help me!

1. Save it to a folder.
2. Reboot into Safe Mode.
3. Double click the Mwav.exe file. This is a stand alone tool and NOT just a virus checker......so it won't install anything.

Ok guys I've got a problem that is just getting beyond me.

I'm using a netgear router/modem to connect one PC via Lan and one laptop wirelessly. Now it has been fine for ages and the network is secure (plus only covers a very small area and I'm on a big property so you'd have to be in my backyard to steal the signal). Also there are no programs downloading in the background, I've looked through every process and stopped everything from running, along with turning each computer off one at a time to rule this out. Also there is no usage being billed to my account, suggesting that there is nothing using the speed that I'm losing. All this and yet my speed on both computers has become extremely eratic, sometimes dropping as low as 1-200kbs (less than 30kb/s down). From time to time it increases to full speed but this is very rare. I called my ISP and they claim there must be a program downloading or someone stealing my signal as there is 'a large flow to my modem'. They didn't seem to understand though that if my computer was downloading for that long at that speed my usage would be thorugh the roof and I'd be shaped (capped). As it stands I check my usage every day and it hasn't increased. So is there anything anyone would suggest I do? My next steps are probably trying someone else's modem and reformatting both computers. Is that the way to go? Telstra says if they come out to check and it turns out to be my fault, th... Read more

A:Slow Internet speed

I don't know that I can't fix your issue, but I can help you check for what might contribute to the slowdown:

What type of connection do you have: Dial-up, cable or DSL?
Click on Start> Settings> Control Panel> System:
[o]What is the operating system?
[o]How much Ram is installed?
Click on Start< Run> type in msconfig> Enter> Choose Startup tab
[o]How many boxes are checked?
Right click on the Taskbar> Task Manager>(in Normal Mode)
[o]Processes tab> Look at the bottom and tell me how many processes are running
[o]Performance tab> Look on the bottom for the Physical Memory
[o]How much Total Memory?
[o]How much Available Memory?
[o]How much is in the System Cache?
================================
When I have the information from the 4 questions above, I may be able to help you.

Logging on to Safe Mode will prevent some drivers and Services from running, so the system will move faster, but you will be able to do less than in Normal Mode.

In Normal Mode, everything you have checked on the Startup Menu to start on boot has to load. Most of those processes will run in the background. This can slow you down.

Started on system by cleaning it of dust bunnies (all vents were covered).
Checked performance through Task Manager and found the CPU running about 1% - 3% at rest. RAM usage was about 1.65 GB.
De-selected some non-essential startup items and got the base memory usage down to around 1.10 GB
I installed and ran CCleaner and removed 8.5 GB of clutter.
Malwarebytes found 19 PUP files.

Checked the Network settings and found that this particular system was configured with a wired connection as well as a wireless connection. The wired connection reports that it has a speed of 1 Gbps. The wireless indicates that it is connected at 54 Mbps.

There is an older Dell Optiplex 755 in this office running Windows 7 with only a wired Internet connection. This machine is a dual-core CPU equipped with 4 GB DDR2 667 MHz memory. As far as Internet speed, it is much faster than the better equipped XPS 7100.

Just wondering if it is possible that the XPS 7100 is using the wireless connection by default even though it also has a wired connection.
Thanks for your valuable input.

A:Slow Internet Speed

I forgot to mention that the Dell XPS 7100 is running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.
