New Gaming Computer Internet Slow But Not In Games
May 22, 2012
i bought a new computer....just for gaming....bout a 1500 big ones...and its internet speed is terrible...its the computer..on internet browsers (firefox, Internet explorer, Chrome) i get like 10-20 Kilos a second...but once im in game....the internet works perfect battlefield....FLAWLESS ping....like 32..
I've been gaming all day and my ping has been extremely high. I figured it was someone in my house downloading something but now it's... 1 a.m. I checked my whole house and shut down everyone's computers so I'm positive no one is stealing my bandwidth.
I was playing a MMO game called Wizard101, when randomly, I disconnected from it. I tried first to re-connect to the game, no success.So I tried going to its website, loads very slowly, sometimes not loading at all.Then I wanted to try go to its fansite, to ask for support there, but it turns out that the fansite isn't loading too.I try to load a few more pages that is related to the game, but none of them will load.However everything else seems to load just like normal.
I try to fix this with using my usuall fixes: - I tried connecting to the websites on another computer. Didn't work. - Restarted my internet + reset my router back to standard. Neither did this work.
I haven't changed any of my internet settings in a few months; so I doubt anything there would be the problem.
Moved into my grandparents for the time being. They have a DSL network...not sure how fast, but it seems very slow. I got a new computer and had to download CS:Source again over steam. It took all night to download and now when I try to go find servers none show up
They have a tiny motorola dsl router. Not sure on the model number as some of the numbers o the sticker have faded away. I hooked it up to my Netgear WGT624 v3 wireless router via the gygabyte 54mbps wireless pci card.
Can I test the connection to see if it is capable of running online games? I've got my iphone 4 hooked up to the wifi and it runs fine...same with this computer web surfing
I bought a DIR-655 a less than a year ago on amazon, and it was working great up until about 4 weeks ago. Ive noticed that it has been dropping alot of packets while I am gaming on my computer. I would run about 95-98 ping usually and now it jitters every 5-10 mins or so from 95-98 to up to 500. It is really troublesome during games and I dont know what to do. Ive tried disabling QoS and still nothing. I run on wireless G and N with auto 20/40 mhz. Standard WPA(personal) and it was running absolutely great until now. I know its the wireless because I have hardwired it into my laptop, both from the router and just the modem itself with no problems whatsoever. I dont know what to do about it.
Farmville plays fine, frontierville is ok, cityville is taking a long time to display friends list to request gifts, and wild west town is the same if it loads at allthis all started about a month ago and i don't know why. I'm trying optimise programs at present still no difference.
I just installed a wifi card in the back of my computer. it only seems to recognize about half of the networks that my laptop recognizes (sometimes it doesn't seem to find my own wifi for a while), but shows everything with full green bars. connecting is difficult but can be done. it shows that my connection is healthy, but the internet is very very slow, it takes about a minute to load google. i am comparing the connection on my machine to the one on my laptop, and they seem pretty much identical (this is info i've gathered through ipconfig /all and also network connection details in windows 7). the only different information is that the IPv4 addresses are slightly different for each machine (which i think is correct). when i diagnose the connection it says that ''the device or resource (DNS server) is not responding"
i've tried flushing and renewing and releasing my IP in command, i've rebooted and reset the router about a billion times to no avail, i've got the latest drivers for the wifi card ('sabrent wireless-g 802.11g pci adapter / ralink turbo wireless lan card).. i tried changing my preferred/alternate DNS entries to google and the other one everyone recommends.. nothing is working. the internet is still exceptionally slow and the connection occasionally drops for a second or two.
nyway, I've had an internet connection set up at my house for quite some time, and recently I have noticed that my online games have begun to lag. And I know it is not due to my hardware, it is online-lag, like jumping, and almost teleporting to places. I play games like Battlefield 2, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield 2: Project Reality, and more.I have a 10mbps download and 1mbps upload, so that is an optimum speed for playing games like this, I know. And the connection is split between 3 computers in my home. (1 desktop and 2 laptops, all connecting wirelessely)I have all the modem, and router set up properly.. I just don't understand why I am having this lagging problem. If someone could explain it to me,
the internet today became insanely slow (I have wireless fyi) , something like 100 kb/s which used to be 2.0 mb/s. I can't even load a YouTube video at 360p. A few things have happened recently which may be the cause. First, I left my computer on all night, but since it has been off, so I don't think thats it. My mom recently turned off my computer by holding down the power button. I have searched my computer for viruses with 4 different programs and nothing has come up. I have also restarted my router and modem multiple times and nothing has happened. AND, I did a 3 hour long fragmentation of my hard drive/ cleaning of the computer.
I bought a sony vaio I3 2.1 ghz 4mb ram laptop yesterday, and it has a very unstable wireless internet connection. The internet might be super slow at first, then drop entirely to where it says "you are not connected to the internet," then after not changing anything it will have a normal connection speed for a few minutes before repeating this cycle again. I have a macbook pro that I've had for two years connected to my wireless internet, and it has never had a problem. Even now it runs as usual on the wireless internet. I also have two ps3s that are working fine on the wireless, so I know it's not the router or signal.
I have a HP w1907v with a slow internet. [code] I go on Command Prompt and type in 'ping <my ip> -t' and my ping is quite low. However when I go to something like YouTube, my ping goes super high! It jumps up to 1000. Also when I go on any website at all, my ping goes super high. It happens mainly on websites which have flash on it. I have a Belkin F6D4050 Enhanced Wireless USB Adapter. I thought it was the USB but it wasn't, because when I put the USB into another computer, the internet was fine. The ping didn't skyrocket or anything. It was constantly low.
It should be known that this is not MY specific issue, it's a friend's issue... but I am posting it for him as I know nothing about networking. Don't worry though, anything you post here I will relay for him to do.Is this a wired or wireless connection issue?
How to run and post an ipconfig /all output of the computer(s) in question for review.Here it is:

So here's the deal, my friend has horrible down speed, usually less than 1MB/s according to Speedtest.net, sometimes it hits 2MB/s. However, his brother's in the house have at least 17MB/s, which I can assume is their actual speed that my friend should have... however, he specifically does not.He had a very old wireless card that was installed on his motherboard (desktop PC) that I assumed was the issue upon him first telling me, and from the issues I was personally able to see. For example, he'd constantly disconnect... his internet would just die for him specifically, and then come back. His brother's never lost internet when he did.
After that, I figured his very old wireless card that was installed was just kicking the bucket, so I instructed him to replace it. He went out and bought a new wireless USB adapter, and then uninstalled the network card.Even after all of this, his internet is still poor in terms of down speed. HOWEVER, rather than his internet dying for a few minutes at a time every so often, his internet "stays connected" if that makes sense? For example, we'll be on Skype in a conference call, and his internet will be loading pages very slowly, and Skype will constantly show that it's going from "green - online" to "gray circle - connecting". During this, he's still in Skype, but it's very poor quality from him speaking, and laggy as well.
I am connected to the LAN via ethernet cable, but internet access is terribly slow - cant even browse internet properly (work network uses a proxy to connect to internet - not sure if that is relevant). I would like to remain connected to the LAN via ethernet (to provide easy connection to intranet and mail exchange server, but for outside internet connections, I would like to use a mobile 3g connection.
I have multiple laptops and a PC in my house all connected to Verizon's wireless/wired modem/router.My laptop's bandwidth ranges from 7-20 Mbps, while the desktop cannot seem to rise about 1 or 2. The wireless card for the desktop was a USB Wireless G adapter, in the process of trying to figure out the problem, i replaced it with a b/g/n PCI card. This did NOT resolve my problem. So in a fit of desperation, I reformatted the Desktop, and Restored the modem/router to factory defaults (in that order) neither worked.
I just realized that my internet is slow when my antenna is on top of my computer. I have a pci card with an external antenna connecting to it. If it's on top of my computer, my internet is slow, but if I move it three feet in front of it, it's fast. This makes me think that my computer is somehow blocking or conflicting with the signal. Is this normal, or is there something I can fix in my computer? Download speeds with the antenna on top are around 0.54Mbps, and if I put it as far away as I can, I get around 20Mbps.
I have 2 computers on a network, and 3 devices that use wifi on the same network. Basically when ever computer A is connected, every single computer or device on the network runs extremely slow, if at all. I get anywhere between 1200-2000 ping on pingtest with 2-60% packet loss. Even the speed on the "infected" computer A downloads extremely slow. I'm at a loss for this problem, everything runs slow and its because of the one computer connected to it. I have virus software on this computer, but its not the best so i'm not ruling out malware or viruses right off the bat.
Devices: Blackberry, Iphone, macbook (all wifi) Computer A Runs windows xp 32 bit, amd processor onboard video
The internet modem runs to a router (Dlink dir615) then to a switch (or hub, if you will) and then to the 2 computers. The entire problem is solved by unplugging computer A from the system. But other than that I have no alternative.
My Main computer (which has a wired connection to router) internet is running so slow, i mean so slow that i cannot even do a speed test, it keeps failing, im continuously getting server timed out messages when browsing, and to watch a youtube video of 1 minute long it will take about 5 - 10 minutes to stream it before i can watch it. However despite the above the two laptops and ipad work great, i have a braodband speed of around 16megs. Now here is everything i have done so far. After calling my ISP to se if it was their fault, which it turned out not to be, they got me to change all the DNS and IP settings to manual, they gave me all the numbers to put in. Again that did not work so i used namebench to find the quickest DNS servers for me, that didnt work ethier so i just reverted all settings back to automatic as they were before.
Whenever I play video games my internet is completely interrupted and eventually disconnects.I thought it was a steam issue but recently I bought dragon age 2 and the exact same thing happens for it.
What is strange is that it continues to happen even if I run the game in a window and pull up a program in front of it, but the moment I minimize the game (windowed) the internet picks right up 2 seconds or so after I minimize it. I verified this by running speed tests and minimizing and reopening the game window to see what would happen.
I am completely confused on where to begin. I remember playing Arma 2 6 months ago and I didn't have this issue but something has changed since then and I don't know what.I have U-Verse internet, ATI Radeon HD 5700, Intel i5 cpu 2.67ghz, windows 7 32 bit, and 4 gb ram.
I launch a game (HoN, Dungeon Defenders, Team Fortress 2, CSS, LoL, Whatever.) and my internet sputters out, disconnects and my wireless cannot 'discover' any networks.
I have tried:Speedtest.net (Check connection)Pingtest.net (Check Packet Loss and Jitter)ping google.com -t (Nothing but normal, for an hour)Reinstall/Update video driversSwitching Wireless card to new PCI-E slotResetting routerSwitching off router for 25 minsDisabling IPv6and; Removing my wireless network and making a new profile
My internet/gaming/netflix has been slowing down lately, some parts of the day there are no problems, other parts (4-10pm) its impossible. I live with one roommate, I have my own router and he has his own router. Mine is a Netgear router, not sure what his is. Ourinternet, with no problems is: 65ping, 4.8 mbps, and .60 upload. When its busy: 180ping, .30 mbps, and .09 upload. I constantly get kicked off xbox live and its super frustrating. The thing is, when my roommate is gone I am able to stream netflix in HD without any problems.However, when he's using netflix the quality of mine drops to the lowest signal and most times disconnects me from xbox live. I'm not sure if this is an ISP issue or a router issue
I've tried so many settings I cant even remember where i left off but one general question, troubleshoot to the next step with the wga54g; sometimes the connection shows 'acquring address' but never connects. I've fiddled with things so that i can get the GA to acquire an address but the internet comes through. Also the GA never shows up on the client table. So is the fact that i can get a network address a good thing or doesn't that necessarily mean i'm 'connected' to the network. Its frustrating to have the G light lite up yet no connection also at one point I did get the GA to show up in the client table when it was directly connected to the linksys 1200 but when i walked into the room and attached it to the PC, no dice I've turned off all firewalls temporarily and the 1200 is set on wpa/wp2 mixed. when i tried setting it just to wpa i got a warning then I lost my internet. I had to reinstall the 1200 again.
I play some games online casually, primarily League of Legends, and about every second sitting the internet has frequent 'blips' of going down for long enough to make the game have connection issues. I've noticed it is the sending that goes down and if the receiving goes down at all, then it is very quick. (The game still plays and I see everything that is happening but cannot respond. This happens in Rift too the rare time I play it and the even rarer flash games I play). Though I have tried many things to fix this issue, it hasn't truly bothered me that much until recently when I realized I play even less than I normally would out of fear the game session will be ruined by the internet.About half a year ago the internet was in very bad shape. It crashed often and stayed down for a long time. My ISP is Comcast (Or Xfinity...), and it took me many weeks of harassing their customer support (off and on) for them to fix it. Then it ran smoothly for a couple months before it started having these blips.
The details:When it has a blip, before, during, and afterwards (I've sat by the modem to watch it happen), there is no indication of the internet having trouble on the modem indicator lights. Nothing changes, and they flash at about the same rate as normal. The router I have is a Linksys, and nothing seems to change on it either during a blip.I have the games port forwarded. All my firewalls including the windows firewall are off. I have updated my wifi and internet drivers on my computer and am using the firmware recommended to me by my ISP for the router.
My computer it connected to the internet wirelessly but i cant broswe the web or play video games online. I am an avid world of warcraft player but it tells me i cannot connect to the launcher. The laptops that connect to the same internet work just fine though. I have tried to connect through an ethernet cord with no luck.
I built my new computer a while ago & I have went through 3 wireless network adapters already... 2 from d-link that just stopped working after 1-3 months and my current linksys ae3000 disconnects from internet randomly while gaming.I am looking for a new Wireless Network Adapter, or any tips or anything to stop my current problem.

Recently, I've been having some problems trying to play a couple games coded in Java, such as MineCraft. Every time the game loads, my internet immediately disconnects.There isn't any error dialogue or message, it simply disconnects me.Sometimes, I am able to stay on my internet connection and play the game for a short while, but most of the time, it disconnects me. I am on a wireless connection, with a router running the custom DD-WRT firmware.
Whenever playing a game on my laptop such as WOW or EvE online my wireless internet will disconnect. I have a button on my keyboard that turns my wireless on and off like many laptops do, and when playing these games after a couple minutes it will be turned off and I need to restart my computer to be able to get my wireless working again. This must be a problem with my computer and not the internet itself because I'm on campus and I see many other people playing games here.
windows update did its thing but as soon as it finished downloading and started installing my AVG anti-virus pop'd up requesting to move some files to "the vault", when that happened windows finished installing and asked my computer to restart, after it restarted i tried to go on AIM and Ventrilo (aka Vent), here's i knew something was wrong, I couldn't sign in to AIM all it said was "waiting for Network..." and Vent just simply said "unknown last ip address" I went to command prompt > ipconfig where it said connection-specific dns suffix it was blank, for ip address it still showed my ip same for subnet mask there was still some numbers but, for default gateway it was blank, thinking it must had something to do with the drivers window installed I did a system restore to two days ago, after it rebooted I thought I fixed it, I was able to sign on AIM as well as Vent even able to use google chrome and watch a friend stream on live on twitch tv, so calling it a night I shut down my PC and when to sleep, now to the title, woke up turned on PC got on AIM and Vent perfectly tried to play Maplestory (don't judge XD i grew up with that game) but it said I had to download the game, made sense to me I just got the game a last night but just did a system restore to 2 days before so I started downloading the game it would work for a few moments but then my internet would die and the same problem that I described would happen again, and the only way i could get my internet to work on my PC was to restart the computer?
I download drivers from Nvidia website it self so i did and it said my motherboard drivers were out of date, I downloaded the drivers and installed them, the Nvidia guid said it would uninstall the old drivers and restart the computer and install new drivers but, when the computer restarted it said something about there were other wizerd installings ? and press okay to minimize the prosses so I can close those, I tried but it did some kind of loop saying again that it would unistall and install after restarting and again like last time said there were other programs running, this time i clicked exit, I went back to Nvidia site to see if the drivers for the motherboard installed, the versions matched but the site did state "your drivers are up to date" like it normally would just asked if I wanted to down load the driver as if my motherboard was still out of date?

I recently installed a NetGear router to my PC in order to do online gaming. Now my laptop does not connect to the internet. I have spent over 9 hours on the phone with Centurylink (the internet provider); Netgear (the router) and HP (the laptop). Each one says its not their problem. The laptop can find our connection, it says "Connected". However it then says "Internet access denied".
