Wired Internet Speed Is Inconsistent Slow And Fast
Nov 15, 2011
Webpages sometimes load quite sluggish and when playing an online game I am experiencing much more lag. However, if I try loading the same webpages a few minutes later, they will being loading fast again. It seems as if my internet is periodically slowing down. Using speedtest.net, it shows 10Mbps download and 9Mbps upload. However, sometimes when I run speedtest again, the download portion will hang and the test won't complete.My internet provider is COX Communications. I do not think I am using a router as it is university provided internet so I connect my Ethernet directly into the wall jack.
I just set up a new computer with win 7 - 64. The cable broadband download speed is less than 1 meg/sec. My wife and daughters computers, which are wireless, see now slowdown. My computer is connected to the router thru the ethernet connection. The previous computer using win xp - 32, plugged into the same router had no unusual speed problems. I did turn off the windows 7 firewall. Did no good.Could there be some incompatibility between the router and win 7 - 64?? Are there some settings that need changing?
I installed Comodo's Firewall and during installation I accepted to install the Secure DNS too. Afterward I noticed my web-pages loaded slower than usual. They weren't extremely slow but definitely slower than what I've been accustomed. I tried some OPENDNS servers and others to see if it made any difference but it didn't. I also went to my router's setup page((http://192.168.1.1/)so I could manually add the previously mentioned DNS servers. I finally decided to revert back to my old DNS list. To disable using the Comodo DNS servers I did the following:Wireless Network Connection Properties-> Internet Protocol Ver 4 (TCP/IPv4)-> Properties -> Select "Obtain DNS server address automatically"I also went into to my router's setup page (http://192.168.1.1/) to set my DNS list to zeros so that I can get back my default ISP's DNS servers (18.104.22.168,186,187). However, website loading is still sluggish.I thought the issue might just be a temporary hiccup from my ISP but my roommate doesn't have these issues. We tried a speed test at dslreports.com and the results were weird. On my laptop the results were 8500+ Kb/s with a 279ms latency. I was 10 ft away from my router.
Earlier today Comcast came to our house and upgraded our internet from 12 MB/s to 22 mb/s speed.We have a larger house using wifi internet with 3 laptops (2 XP, 1 Win7).Our wifi has always slowed down speeds on the computers.Our laptops were generally getting 3-6 download speed via speedtest.net.Then when we plugged in directly we got full 12 mb/s.So we figured, hey lets upgrade our internet to get faster speeds around the house!Today we are doing speed tests with the new 22mb/s and only my dad's win-7 laptop is getting 21mb/s via wifi. Even when right next to the router the other 2 laptops only max out at 6mb/s and can not go any higher. When directly connected they get the full 22mb/s.
why is it that one computer gets full speed via wifi when the 2 XP computers do not? It really seems like the speed has a cap at 6.35mb/s download, never goes higher on the speed test.Currently using a Linksys WRT160N Router.When I check the DHCP Client Table it shows that all computers are connected via Wireless-G so it's not a connection type.Is there a specific setting on the XP computers that are capping speed?
i have a laptop that i connect through our wireless router with, and for the past couple months my download speed have been terrible. my browsing speed is just as fast as it always was when i am connected to our router, just incredibly slow if i try to download or stream something.however, my downstairs neighbor also has a wireless router set up that i can access which gives me incredible download speeds but my cant even browse the internet because i the browser connection times out.i have tried plugging directly into my router to on the thought that perhaps the 2 routers' wireless was somehow interfering with each other, but my download speeds are still *** even then.
ISP provides us with 20 mb/s download speed. Both Toshiba laptops used to be able to attain this but after reinstalling windows xp on this laptop, it can only achieve 8mb/s. The other laptop will get 20 mb/s whether connected wired or wireless. For the life of me cannot figure what has changed. I have installed all windows updates including SP3 and updated all drivers via Toshiba website. It uses the Intel 3945b/g network card and the router is a motorola sbg 6580.Connecting wired will achieve 20mb/s so it has something to do with the wireless setup.Have tried connecting to router with WPA, WPA2, and no encryption but makes no difference.Testing right beside the router or 30ft away makes no difference.Have uninstalled/reinstalled network card but made no difference
i have high speed internet from charter(i know they are not the best but more on that later) with actually download speeds tested online around 10-13mbps on average. i keep my computer pretty clean, running smart defrag, cleaning the disk, anti virus, only have programs running in the background that are needed, have increased my virtual memory and also use readyboost with a 4 gb flashdrive that i allow to use all the flashdrive memory as "ram" memory. so i think this has be something below the surface and that i cannot handle on my own. i do not think it is my internet provider because i have to roommates that have computer and they have no problem usually with the internet. when i say usually i mean they have problems sometimes maybe 3-4 times weekly where i have problems at least 2-3 times a day.

I get 17 mbs download on one wireless laptop, only 7 mbs on the other wireless laptop. What should I look for to fix the slow laptop.The slow laptop is 8 feet from router with drywall wall between, the faster is 25 feet, no wall between computer and router.
I have a E3200 Router and when the computers are connected directly to router (Wired) the speed is SLOW and when computers are connected via wireless the speed is fast (normal). What can i do to have the wired computer with same fast speed as wireless?....i'm i missing something?Here are the speed results:
All wired computers connections (total of 4) downwload speed ranging from 8 Mbps to 13 Mbps.
All wireless computer connections download speed stable at 49 Mbps.
I bought my own modem, a Motorolla Extreme something or other, is a DOCSIS 3.0. My router is a Belkin N150. When I plug my desktop computer directly into the router, I get speeds upwards of 50Mbps. The wireless, however, gets about 0.15Mbps download, but as much as 12Mbps upload.
I know it's not computer specific, because I plugged my laptop directly into the modem and got the full speed. AND I put a wireless adaptor on the desktop and got the slower speeds.I live in a densely populated area and there are 27 other (visible) wireless networks available (all locked, unfortunately. Otherwise I wouldn't be in this situation in the first place). So I tried every channel, doing a speedtest with each, and I got almost identical results each time: 0.12-0.17Mbps download, 11-13Mbps upload. I can't imagine that getting only 0.15Mbps could be a result of a channel being clogged, but I tried it anyway;
Around 4-5 months ago I moved house within the same town and I've stayed with the same ISP (British Telecom.)However, I used to experience downloads which exceeded 200kb/s at my old house (which still to many may not seem that fast) and now the download speed struggles to get near 100kb/s and instead seems stable around the 85kb/s which isn't really cutting the mark for me.I am using Wireless internet with a BT VOYAGER 2110 hub.These are the results of some recent speed tests I have taken:
I recently acquired a laptop from a friend, he was having problems with it and decided to just give it away and buy a new one, I took and it examined the problem, it is a HP Pavillion laptop running on Windows 7.When I booted it up it said "NO BOOTABLE DISK" or "NO BOOTDISK INSTALLED" or something of that nature.I realized that the harrdrive was fried so I bought a new harrdrive and installed it into the new laptop, reinstalled Windows 7 onto the laptop and installed all the required drivers.I don't understand why, my old laptop running on Windows XP, it runs fine and smoothly, pages open quick and downloads finishing fast and smoothly.But when it comes to the Windows 7 laptop, A 2mb file takes almost 30 mins just to download, web pages take forever to open up.
Att says they are giving us 3mb/sec but we get 300kbps and speed tests from anywhere say we get 2.5 to 2.9 mb/sec yet even on unlimited bandwidth downloads(like torrents) with thousands of seeds connected and a few peers they never get faster than 340kb/sec.
I just reformatted my PC and the internet is really slow. I should be getting 15 Megs down but only getting as little as 1 Meg down. Every other PC and device in the house is getting 15 down. why my PC would be slowing down my speeds?
I had a power surge caused by the local electrical provider on February 3, 2011. Since then my computer power source was replaced and the computer works okay. Since the power surge my speed to uploading and downloading on the internet is inconsistent. Time Warner, my internet provider, said it was an internet problem and they replaced the modem, and have worked on their lines multiple times and now say it's a computer problem, not with their wiring. Yesterday I could not get an upload or download signal at all. This morning my download was 29.23 and upload 1.91. Some days it will take 4-5 yours to send an e-mail. I don't know what to do.
I am using a Cisco RVS 4000 to test a new 10M/10M internet connection. I'm having a small problem performing the ISP's speed test (speedtest.cavtel.net). The download test consistently gives me 10Mbit/s, full speed for the connection, however the upload speed is usually about 5.5 Mbit/s. My ISP has been onsite and has checked the lines and tested directly, and we have determined that if connected directly we can test to full upload speeds, but when the RVS is connected, we cannot get full speed.
We've tried different cables, reseting to factory defaults, updating firmware, changing port settings, and toggling most of the other setting on the router. Some settings do have a minor effect on the upload speed, but nothing that gets me back up to 10Mbit/s.
I did notice that there appears to be no way to set speed and negotiation settings on the WAN port. Perhaps I am missing it, because that seems like a possible culprit.
Otherwise, the only only thing I can think of is a warranty return to determine if the unit itself is defective.
I'm having an issue with my new E1200 routeur : I have a 100mbit/s connection and since i installed the E1200 , the speed is cut in half : Max 50 mbit/s .. ( or if this is an hardware limitation ? )
I have a gigabit network card with my pc , everything is fine on the pc / network side as i had these speed fine ( 100mbit/s ) with my old ISP router , ( wich i switched in bridge mode to use the E1200)
I have a problem with my download speed. I'm supposed to have a speed of 60 MBPS and when I collect my computer direct to the modem I received it but with my e2000 router, the 3 computer connected to it can't reach more than 30 MBPS. I just updated the firmware of the router to the newest version but nothing changed.
Yesterday, I changed my old belkin n1 router with Linksys WRT54GL router. Ever since them my upstream speed is really slow. I did the speedtest its like .5mbit. My downstream speed is just fine. This issue is only on wired computers, upstream speed on wireless computers is just fine.I retested router & modem several times, my upstream speed is normal when I connect cable directly from modem to my computer.Current Firmware Version is 4.30.14 build 5.
My company just bough me another Dell Latitude 6530 with Dell wireless 1540 half card previously I am using Dell Latitude 6520 with Intel Centrino Ultimate N 6300 without any problem
but this new Dell 6530 wifi connection is pretty slow and inconsistent -- I may got burst of high speed / performance for few seconds but pretty much all time is slow.I ran both the old 6520 and new 6530 side by side as I am transferring file and downloading new software, so I can tell for sure that this new 6530 has some issues.
1. Update the drivers for Dell wireless 1540 using this link [URL]
2. Set the power management to high performance, disable power management for the wireless card as well
3. Turn off "Allow computer to save power" in the wireless card adapter settings
My newly installed E1200 only sends speeds of about 16 mbps wireless, but sends the ful 60 mpbs when wired. What is going on. Firmware is up to date. Changing the channels didn't do anything. Is there a way to figure out if the problem is with my laptops wireless card.
every devices on my network started having really slow speed. It takes long time for each to navigate thru sites. Normally every device gets around 20-25 MBPS in the network. And i have desktop, laptop, iphone, tablet on the network. I've been trying to fix this for whole day yesterday and today and no luck.how to fix this?.I ran some things from this site and the results are here.
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.
It was monday night when it started playing up. I literally have had it right now. To watch a simple 1 minute long video on youtube I will have to wait about 10 minutes before it is fully loaded. It takes about a minute to load an internet page and it is not just my computer, it is also happening on all other wireless devices and wired (3 laptops, 4 phones, ipad, ipos etc.)
My brother is spending far too much time on a silly internet game on his laptop (Maple Story) and its effecting his school and social life. We're trying to find a way to slow down how fast his internet speed is so his game runs poorly, hopefully making him stop playing. I've looked into blocking programs over routers but it seems like a tough job.
I am using a Samsung N210 with 2GB of memory in it and Windows 7 Starter. When I use the wireless connection the "Connection Status" shows as 72Mbps, which is to be expected considering I am only a few feet from the router.the speed is nothing like that in reality. I tested the actual transfer speeds for the wired and wireless connections by copying a 238MB folder with 77 photos in it. I copied it from the NAS device, where I store all my files, to the local disk of the netbook.
I have a 10 Mbps Internet connection, if I connect my PC directly to my modem I get the 10Mbps sometimes more, also I get them if I connect my modem to my switch and from the switch the computer.The problem comes when I connect my modem to the D-link DIR-600 router and from the RJ-45 connectors of the D-link I connect my computer, i get 0.80, 1.5 max. and my wifi devices gets the 10mbps. What is happening with the D-link RJ-45 slots or im missing something in the configuration?
