Slow internet connection?????????????????????????

My internet is somewhat slow as of lately! Not SUPER slow, i mean I can whatch videos and that kind of thing but sometimes when I click on something it will take like 10 seconds to respond! and sometimes the page wont open! Its either KIND-OF slow or very fast! I know I dont have a virus becuse this is abrand new computer and it has norton internet security 2009! Im VERY safe on the net as well! I have charter communications and when I go to speedtest.net it tells me my current download- 10m- upload 825 kb/s! I have charter communications and I am on a desktop computer thats hooked up to a wireless router, a vonage device and a modem! I only use the router for playstation 3! If im correct charter is localy shared connection wich slows you down a bit? Anyway I would be very greatful if someone could help me out here!

I would first try to clean files with windows's Disk Cleanup, and then run a checkdisk, and a defragmentation. Sometimes helps.

Plus which browser are you unsing? Maybe your opened a lot of tabs what can slow it a little bit too, and the browser's speed depends on how much RAM do you have... etc.

Disc cleanup and defragmentation should be a monthly maintenance chore.  This free defrag is reportedly faster and better than the one in Windows system tools.http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/registry-defrag/download

Disc cleanup is in system tools, but I'm not sure where to find it in Vista.

The slow internet on a local system might be explained by the time of day and the number of people on your system at the same time.

More of this type of info is possibly more applicable to your situation at a Vista forum and from your service provider.

Hi GreatNate1312,

 

There is no need for you to perform the disk cleanup/disk defragmentation. Your issue is with slowness of Internet connectivity that happens unexpectedly, not the slowness of the computer. As it happens on irregular time interval, I also think that it's an issue with the Internet connectivity between the server(ISP) and the client(your computer). Better to ignore this, considering this as a connection loss when more people trying to get access to Internet through the same server(ISP)- which is a common cause. Otherwise, you can do the following:

1. Disable the features from Norton program such as Firewall, Phishing Protection, Intrusion Prevention .etc one at time and then try to access the Videos from the Internet. You can determine in such a way whether it is an issue caused by Norton program.

2. Clear the temp files, cookies and history from Internet Explorer and then check the connectivity.

Hi,

 

Open Norton 2009 product> Click Settings in the Internet Pane> Under Smart Firewall, click configure next to Program Control> In the Program Control window, change the Access of the following programs to allow.

 

  • Internet Explorer
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • Generic Host Process for Win32 services.

 

Then click Configure next to Trust Control under Smart Firewall. Then add your Router or wireless network to trust control.

This thread appears to be completely un-related to NIS/NAV, as such I am closing it.

If you are having connection issues you should consult with your Internet Service Provider, or check out some of theother forums on the internet that deal with connection issues.
