Home Network :: Slow Wifi In Ie And Firefox But Not Chrome

Aug 24, 2011

Here's my setup:

1. 15mbps comcast xfinity cable broadband connection
2. Motorola cable modem
3. Netgear wireless router
4. Dell Inspiron 1520 w/ Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG
5. Windows XP

When I plugin with an ethernet cable to the router, I have no problems and I get the full 15mbps speed when doing speed tests and downloads. IE, Firefox, and Chrome all work fine.When I use the wireless, I only get 5mbps in IE and Firefox, but I get the full 15mbps again when using Chrome.I'm starting to wonder if there are shared Windows components being used by Firefox and IE, but not being used by Chrome. I have reinstalled my wireless adapter driver and it didn't affect anything. I've disabled Windows Firewall, checked for malware, confirmed no proxy was setup in Internet Options, on and on...

Can't Connect To The Internet Using Firefox Or Chrome

Aug 6, 2012

I cannot connect to the internet using firefox or chrome but there's no problem with internet explorer. This happened after I installed and uninstalled speedbit video accelerator. When opened chrome, it gave me the following
error.

(net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error.

After the problem occurred, I rebooted the system, uninstalled firefox and chrome, freshly downloaded firefox (from IE) and the problem persists. I couldn't download chrome because chrome installer says it can't connect to the
internet. Following are the details regarding my system and software.

o/s : windows 7 ultimate
internet explorer : 9.0.8112.16421 64 bit
firefox : 14.01

[Code].....

I tried stopping the firewall and the problem persists. Can't access router via firefox too!! Firefox doesn't give an error it just gives a blank page (about:home).

If this is a dns problem, how come it doesn't affect IE ?? Why can't utorrent listen on listen port ??

Can't Connect To The Internet Using Firefox Or Chrome?

Dec 13, 2012

Am experiencing the same problem where IE can connect to internet, but not Chrome, although the only change to my desktop PC (WinXP SP3) was a windows update. This issue seems to be quite common among all Windows OS because when I queried "can't connect chrome to internet" I've found over 50 posts at various forum describing your issue (and mine). I have also eliminated firewall, antivirus, etc and obviously since IE can get on the internet..my network connection is fine...as is/was yours. Looking more closely I'm thinking that somehow the specific port on outbound is not being accessed by Chrome/Firefox because I used a sniffer and see no request leave my pc and verified no request through my router either.

The winsock catalog in a namespace server configuration listing right? How would you explain that resetting the winspace catalogue fixes the issue?Wand3r3r said it was malware, but I'm quite sure we don't have that issue...I know my machine doesn't and this has occured on the library PCs also. I wan't to find sure fix and understand what is happening on the Windows stack, so that I can assuredly deploy Chrome on a student network and not see this re-occuring all over the place.

No Warning Messages From Browsers IE / Chrome / Firefox

May 18, 2011

StartSSL offers free SSL certificates, so I'm guessing that means no Warning messages from browsers IE,Chrome,firefox atleast? Has anybody used this StartSSL certificate lvl1 is free..I'd tryed this myself but my hosting company is charging twice more for having ssl(just having it not even buying) than for hosting my website.

Super Slow Wifi Only Computer Only On Home Network

Aug 15, 2012

Normally use internet explorer 9, but I've tried Firefox and Chrome also.For some weird reason the Wi-Fi on my computer is super slow. My roommate has no problems at all. Same issue when only one of us are connected. What's really weird is that it's only on my home network the speed is a problem. At school and at other family members houses everything is working perfectly. I now use wired internet connection, and when I take a speedtest it is around 13MB, so the speed is pretty good.

I can mention that sometimes if my computer has been closed and the cable is taken out, when I turn the computer back on the Wi-Fi is suddenly working perfectly. Only for a while though, and then it's not working anymore. Has happened more rarely recently.I've been having this problem for around 7weeks now. When I first discovered the problem I tried to uninstall the latest updates (among windows updates), and it actually worked. But I want my computer to be up to date, so it's not a go to use those settings.

I have tried to reset the router to factory settings, but that did not work.We share internet with our landlord, so to privatize what we do, it's set up like this: Landlords modem -> switch in our apartment -> wireless router But that should not be problem. It's working on everyone else's computers. My mobile phone as no issues either;I've tried to update the driver on the wireless card, but it's up to date.

Slow Net With 1 Computer And Home Wifi

Jan 13, 2013

I have cable internet that is connected to a belkin wireless router. one computer gets slow internet access when connected to this. multiple other computers get better speed. the one affected computer gets fast speeds when accessing the internet at other locations, like a friend's house. also, the affected computer gets fast speeds when connected to the router by a cable.so the problem seems to be very specific to the connection between these specific devices.the laptop in question is a thinkpad e420 running windows 7.

Firefox Youtube Videos Running Slow?

Jun 17, 2011

For some reason Youtube Videos are running extremely slow in Firefox. It has never been this slow, it lags so much when I even have a video on 360p. The worst part, it lags when advertisements load. I don't know why it's doing this, but I want to fix it somehow.

Yesterday, I edited the start up menu to make log ins a lot faster.

Home Network :: Need To Extend Reach Of Wifi Network At Home

Oct 20, 2011

Here's the layout: Cable modem in the basement. Several devices in which I'd prefer a wired connection in the basement. Upstairs on the 1st and 2nd floor of the house are many devices in which wifi is fine or preferred.Here's the problem: As you might guess, wifi is weak upstairs and certainly on the patio and 2nd floor. I have an access point upstairs that I've experimented with but it is flaky.

Home Network :: Notified When Somebody Tries To Connect On Home Wifi?

Nov 24, 2011

My Wifi network has a wpa2 password that is a random string of characters and numbers and yet last month a rogue IP Address kept popping up on my DNS list. It has to be coming from my neighbor who's bedroom is about 15 feet away from my router. So unless someone is sitting out on my front lawn to do this then it must be him.I've been looking for software that will notify me when a connection my router is attempted and kudos if it also asks my permission first would be great.There are wifi packet sniffers out there like Cain&Abel, Airsnort, that sort of thing but I am not quite savvy enough nor do I want to turn this into a complicated hobby but just need a basic warningin case something gets past my passwords again

Home Network :: Gigabit Slow - They Say I Should Be Seeing At Least 20MB/s?

Oct 9, 2011

Last month I decided to upgrade my network and switch everything from 10/100 to 10/100/1000 (gigabit).My setup I'm struggling with right now :

Desktop Running Win 7 x64 with a 1 gigabit NIC (running latest drivers from Intel)

Linksys E3200 Router w/ Cisco 10/100/1000 x 4 ports (Latest firmware)

USB 2.0 NAS with a WD 160SB HD 7200rpm (100MB/s)

On file transfers from the NAS connected to the Router, connected to the desktop with a CAT 5e 5ft cable, I'm pulling 9.5 MB/s MAX

Everyone I talk to say, "wow, that's what 10/100 runs" and that I'm not running one gigabit. They say I should be seeing at least 20MB/s. What am I doing wrong here? I've trying play with buffer size, settings on the NIC, MTU on the router. I'm lost at what to do.

Home Network :: Getting Very Slow Speed Of Between 10-15Mbps?

Nov 17, 2011

I have a homeplug network as follows:

6x 85Mbps homeplugs in different rooms, each connected to a 5 port switch

2x rooms contain a PC

5x rooms contain a Squeezebox of various types

Router connected to homeplug

I have realised that I am only getting very slow network speeds of between 10-15Mbps (LAN SPeed Test)which affects Squeezebox's ability to play several devices synched up at a time playing 320Kbps MP3s

I have done some proprietory testing in my home by switching devices on & off & testing network speed accordingly but no significant gains seem to be made. One PC seems to report far lower speeds though at 5Mbps which is 3 times lower than the other PC. They are set up to read/write files from eachothers shared folders (but not simultaneously).1st question is, am I being realistic about the speed of data throughput I expect on a network of this type? I was expecting a much higher speed like 50Mbps.I wouldn't mind investing in the faster Homeplug system but having to buy 6x adapters isn't worth it if I will only get a marginal improvement.

Networking :: Home Network Very Slow Between PCs WRT54GS

Mar 13, 2011

I've just setup a box with Windows Home Server 2011 RC. It's a AMD X2 with 3GB RAM. Everything is fine with that, but I'm noticing my internal network speeds are pretty slow. I'm seeing on average 0.8MB/s transfer speed between my PC's and the server, and between the PC's themselves. I have everything wired through a Linksys WRT54GS router.Is this as much as I can expect from this setup? It's painful trying to copy media files (music, pictures and HD video) to the server at such slow speeds! What would I need to do to get better speeds? I'm assuming a different router could do better.

Home Network :: Abnormal Slow Internet Only On Wireless Connection?

Apr 27, 2013

We have been having a very abnormal speed issue. This one has me stumped. I am fed up and thinking maybe its an Att issue that will NEVER be resolved.Brother comes and bothers me Zach internet is slowŁ thinking hes just being picky I tell him to reboot his computer. He says its still slow. I run a speed test from my desktop computer I get a 5.36Mbps download and .63 up. I go to his windows xp professional laptop and run a speed test he pulls .63mbps down and .32 up. This is a Dell Latitude D610 with built in wifi. My desktop just so happens to be a wired connectionI grab my laptop which happens to be the exact same model and experience the same result. So I power cycle to modem, then the Linksys ea2700 router. The speeds go back to 5.37m down and normal speed up. Then after 20 minutes its back to a CRAWL.

OK the router MUST be dead. I will kill two birds with one stone. I plug in my Modem/Router combo 2wire 2700. Speed does the same thing starts off fast then slow to a crawl. Figuring it's a laptop issue I use a Linksys wireless USB adapter AE-2500. I get the same result fast then slow. NOW the crazy thing is that its only on my wireless connections. The wireless computers use wireless G and say 54mbps so why would the internet be slow only on the wireless connection.So maybe it's an interference issue So I start up the generator and plug my modem router and laptop into it. I then shut off THE ENTIRE POWER service to my house! I get the same result fast then slow. My neighbors are far apart and I have switched wireless channels and even used the 5ghz frequency with the same results.An ATT Tech says the line is fine. They came to the house and tested everything. The only thing that has happened recently was a storm which left flooding in some parts of town. Only one time was I able to test my WIRED computer and get a download speed of .04Mbps down and .32 up

Home Network :: Can Ping Gateway But Not Router And Slow Internet

Feb 21, 2011

A while ago internet access was slowed right down for an hour or so. I have a phone line that comes into the house and then into gateway (10.0.0.2) then ethernet from that to linksys wifi router (192.168.1.1). So I did the following ping and repeated what you see below a few times to see that these results were broadly consistent, which was the case. One other person is connected to linksys via ethernet cord and they might have been on at the time. Questions are.... are these results consistent with contention caused by other user on the linksys? and why can I ping gateway but not the router? That makes no sense to me! I am not annoyed with the other person if he is hogging the network...I like him. I just wonder whats going on. When the internet works results from pinging are all as one would expect

Home Network Very Slow - Using Spare ADSL Router And Homeplug Networking?

Apr 17, 2013

Today I set up a home network:Cable router plugged in to......Homeplug network, (D-Link DHP-307AV/B 200 MBPS PowerLine Homeplugs) plugged in to a LAN port of......a spare adsl router configured as per here: Connecting Additional Routers | Tech Support Forum...with two desktop machines plugged into the LAN ports of the ADSL router.Both of the desktops have got similar specs, are equi-distant from the ADSL router, and are both connected using Ethernet, not wireless.One of them gets a 9MB/sec ADSL [URL]download, the other can't even bring the webpage up and times out if you ask Google to do a search.Taking out the adsl router and plugging the desktop straight into the homeplug gets a network speed of ~13MB/sec on [URL].Plugging a computer directly into the cable modem gives network speeds of ~40MB/sec on [URL] How can I improve on this, and have it so that both machines can access the Interwebnet at a decent bandwidth?

Internet Connection Disconnects Intermittently / Home Network Extremely Slow?

Aug 23, 2012

I have been having problems with my Internet the past couple weeks. If I am watching a video, it doesn't matter which site, the video will stop and start from the beginning or the video will just stop altogether and I have to refresh the page. Another problem that happens while browsing, it will take about a minute for a page to load. The computer I am using is wired right into the router.

The rest of the family's computers the apple tv and the roku are wireless. I have been hearing complaints from them and have witnessed the laggyness. While streaming videos on the roku or apple tv, the video will stop and say video is not available or no connection. This is what I get from ipconfig/all

Home Network ::how To Share The Wifi

Dec 3, 2011

Neighbor agreed to let me use his WiFi connection only if it requires no changes or disruptions on his side. His signal is broadcast with a wireless router. I can currently see his signal broadcast on my laptop, but it's very weak.I have a omnidirectional antennae already mounted outside my house with a clear sight of view. It has a cable attached to it that terminates with a N connector inside my building.I need to connect to his signal (there are several being broadcast in the area) and then forward it to my router. My router will then provide connectivity to my home network.What hardware do I need between the outdoor omnidirectional antennae (that terminates with a N connector) and the wireless router inside my building?

Extending Wifi Network At Home?

May 8, 2012

have a home network setup that works completely fine everywhere in the house except one room. That room happens to be my son's room that has his Xbox 360 in it. He wants to play online but I cant get a signal back in there and if I do it is extremely weak. I have a linksys E2500 router connected to my cable modem that is wired ot one computer and then my 2 laptops connect to the wireless from that router. The Playstation 3 that is about 15 feet away works fine as well. All our ipods and iPhones work well too. It is only his bedroom where we run into trouble with any of these devices. I actually just upgraded to the E2500 about 2 months ago, so I have a Motorola WR850G sitting around. Can I use this closer to his room to lengthen my signal or how can I proceed to get him a better signal

Computer Does Not Identify Home Wifi Network

Jan 19, 2011

I recently got my laptop fixed after it being out of commission for about a year (it turns out there was just too much dust collecting in it) and when I got home and tried to connect to my wifi network, I didn't have internet access. I received a message that said I had sucessfully connected to my network but it was only a local connection - no internet. It also shows up as "Unidentified Network." This is peculiar to me because my boyfriend's laptop is able to connect to the internet wirelessly just fine, and I am currently using the wifi on my iPhone. I ran the ipconfig and several ping tests in cmd and used a wifi inspector.
