Q: Have any tips to increase internet speed

I'm using Mobidata Edge Modem. My internet connection is very slow. I found some speed increasing software, using them but don't get useful result. Have any solution how can I increase my speed, have any technique?

Preferred Solution: Have any tips to increase internet speed

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.)

A: Have any tips to increase internet speed

the best way to have faster internet that i have found is:

1: use a computer that is cheap to replace. (older is usually the case here)
2: use a wired connection
3: Firefox with add blocker (most adds are images, get ride of them get ride of about 1/2 of the page download)
4: set Firefox to delete all cookies and temp files when closed. (not with addons, just with the normal settings)
5: do not use any software that effects any programs dealing with the internet.
*no anti-virues, firewalls,un-needed addons, web sharing. ~ this is why you want to use a cheap fix computer*

if you do this:
you want to keep any thing you want to keep on removable memory (and backed up).
virus removal software on the computer but not constantly running. (manually scan)
and an operating system disk for the computer to reinstall if needed.
i have an old 98 computer that i use like this... when i use it i never seem to have any problems... but when others use it i always seem to have to scan/reinstall.

BTW i have tried a lot of different speed increasing software but i have not found any that works at all.
also some changes to your network card settings might help.

The scenario:
You've got a wireless router from netgear with the latest firmware. It's the model MR814. You've got 2 computers hardwired to it. Both get 3MBPS. Then you've got one that's wireless. It gets 1.8MBPS. It's got the "matching" wireless card- the one they recommend you use. The wireless reception is ALWAYS rated as excellent (by XP pro). There is no way to wire it. It is a rural area, and hacking, war driving, etc is not a problem AT ALL.

Any general tips or tricks to get the wireless computer up to speed?

A:General tips to increase wireless speed

Try changing the channel the router broadcasts on. Move the router as high as possible.

Try this, it improved my pc but not much

Click the start button
then type in the start menu system.ini

in the system.ini copy this

page buffer=10000000Tbps

Tbps means Tera bytes per second which means the internet speed will improve

Second method:
If it did not work try this other method
1-go to run
2-type gpedit.msc
3-expand the administrative templates
4-expand the network
5-select Qos Packet Scheduler
6- double click limit reservable bandwidth
7-enable it and put 0 in the bandwidth limit
8-click apply and ok

Dear Friends;

I connect with internet through my wireless phoneset which speed is 230.4kbps. If I want to increase the speed of internet, should I change the internet service provider or the RAM of PC has also influence on internet speed.

Sorry if I could not explain well and sorry for my lack of basic knowledge.

A:How can I increase the internet speed?

ram won't assist in internet speed. if you are going through a phoneset modem, you are most likely limited by that technology. You can go to http://www.dslreports.com/stest and see how you rank compared to similar technologies, but I would suspect you are about at the limit.

However, I've been wrong before, so if you show up on the bottom edge of a similar connection type, the next step would be contacting and/or switching isp's.

Hello to all of you!

The speed of my Local Area Connection is : 100.0 Mpbs.
Here`s the problem.

The most frequent download speed I get from (Steam, IDM or Browser downloads) ranges 100-120 KB/s.
But sometimes I get about a speed ranges 900 KB/s or even 1MB/s higher.

Can someone tell me how can I make it stay with 900 KB/s?

A:How can I increase my Internet Downloading Speed

If your connection is 100Mbps then you should get downloads of 12MB/s. However, I think you are mistaking LAN connection speed with the speed you are getting from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You can only increase Internet download by switching to a better Internet plan from your ISP.

LAN speed is the speed you can get while communicating with other local PCs that are wired to the router.

Source: petri.co.il - Increase Broadband Connection Speed in Windows XP/2003 (January 2009 article)


This tip is designed for increased BROADBAND speed in Windows XP while using standard Network Interface cards (NIC) that are connected to ADSL modems, or when using any directly-connected USB ADSL modem.

To speed up the Internet connection speed we need to configure a special buffer in the computer's memory in order to enable it to better deal with interrupts made from the NIC or the USB modem.

This tip is only recommended if you have 256MB RAM or higher.

Step #1 - Identify the IRQ used by the NIC/USB modem

1. Open the System Information tool by running MSINFO32.EXE from the Run command.

2. Expand System Summary > Hardware Resources > IRQs.

3. Look for the listing made for your NIC (in my case - a Intel? PRO/100+ Management Adapter). Note the IRQ next to the specified line (in my case - IRQ21).

In case of USB modems you will first need to find the right USB device used by your modem. Follow these steps:

1. Open the Device Manager tool by running DEVMGMT.MSC from the Run command (or by right-clicking My Computer > Hardware tab > Device Manager button).

2. Scroll down to Universal Serial Bus controllers and expand it.

3. Right-click the USB Root Hub and select Properties. Note that you might need to do so for all listed USB Root hubs (if there are more than one) in order to find the right one.

My HP Pavilion 750n is running really slow online, and I have a high speed connection. It's not too bad when I'm not on the Internet, but websites open really slow, and some of them just quit before they even load. I was gonna run a registry cleaner, but then I saw on here that it isn't recommended! I was using Norton, but recently uninstalled that and installed AVG, which I ran as well as Adaware; neither found any major problems. I posted a HijackThis log a few weeks ago, but no one responded so I assume there wasn't anything there either. My used space is 19.1GB and my free space is 50.6, so I don't imagine that is the problem either. I'm running Windows XP. Any suggestions on how to speed this thing up, or is it just suffering from old age?!!

Hi can anyone tell me to get the fastest internet possible.
I have done the pipelining tweaks and have the most recent Firefox.
I also has cable ISP with about 25 Mbps.
Is there anyway to make my browser load almost instantly?
I have an online business and do ALOT of downloading, and multiple browsers working.
It seems like it lags

A:Firefox Tips or Tricks for SPEED!!!!??

Latest Firefox is version 3.6. According to Mozilla tests, Firefox 3.6 is 15% faster than Firefox 3.5. If you still find it slow then you need a CPU and RAM update.

You say you have multiple browsers working? If it means you have many Firefox windows open then you may want to use tabs instead of windows. Tabs significantly improve the speed compared to opening a separate browser window.

Lagging for Firefox may be normally because of these things - bandwidth is being used by some other process (for example, you are downloading a file), your DNS servers are not responding fast enough, your Firewall/Antivirus is scanning your HTTP traffic.

Since you already know how to change Firefox settings, try this too :
network.dns.disableIPv6 = true
nglayout.initialpaint.delay = 0

Tweaks that do nothing, or could even slow your PC down.

Many speedup tools include the "unload DLLs" tweak - but it hasn't done anything useful for years

If your PC seems to have slowed down recently, then there's plenty of help to be found online.

A few minutes at Google will turn up hundreds of speed-up guides and tweaking tools, each promising that they can revitalise your system.

And that would be fine, if it wasn't for the fact that many of their tweaks are obsolete, some are urban myths and have never worked, and a few will even cut your performance.

Identifying the dubious tips can be difficult, though, so we've got you off to a head start by listing our top 10.

Despite some of them not doing anything since Windows 98, and others being utterly useless on all versions of Windows, most have regularly appeared in speed-up guides and tools across the web. But, as you'll see, they're all best avoided, so you can focus your attention on the speed-up tweaks that actually deliver.

I wanna have it running at maximum speed all the time, i wanna bring my cpu temps below 40C at idle.

A:How to increase CPU Fan Speed

It depends on the type of fan you have.

Some of them alter their own speed according to the temperature, some of them have their speed adjusted by the motherboard.

How many wires run into your fan? If it's three wires then there is no way to control its speed. If it's four wires then connecting the speed control wire to +5V should do the trick.

I recently purchased a new computer (parts) from Newegg. My motherboard is an ASRock P45XE,
My processor is an E8400, and I have 4GB of G.Skill DDR2 1066.

In the BIOS settings, I change the FSB of my processor from 333 to 356. Which is 3.0Ghz to 3.21Ghz. Increasing this, changes my DRAM frequency from 1066 to 1138. For some reason, my computer won't function after the BIOS screen with 3.21Ghz AND DDR2 1138.

Although, I am able to run my computer safely at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854.

So my question is... Should I run my computer at 3.0Ghz and DDR2 1066? Or should I run it at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854? For the best performance

A:FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

You can OC and manually set a divider in the BIOS to allow you to run your RAM and FSB at different speeds. For your given numbers, you can set a RAM:FSB divider of 8:5.

Your OC may also be limited by your motherboard. But generally speaking, a higher CPU frequency nets a greater boost in performance compared to a higher RAM frequency.
