Networking :: Sudden Slowdown In Internet Speed On One Laptop Only
Oct 29, 2015
Up until recently Ive had a steady and stable internet connection on all devices, however recently on one laptop the connection is now incredibly slow (multiple tests on bandwidthplace.com show download speeds of 0.1 Mbps while on another laptop connected to the same connection shows over 7mbps). Connection to my android phone works fast too, I don't know what is making this happen, Ive tried resetting the router, refreshing the connection, releasing/renewing the ip. Not sure what to do here, as I don't have this problem connected to other networks, and other devices on this network aren't experiencing the same issues.
I also updated to the latest available driver from my manufacturer's website and I'm not 100% sure if I have all the latest windows updates since the connection is barely sustained, but I believe I do as I frequently manually check for updates in addition to automatic updates being enabled.

Firefox is running at it's normal speed but when I try to connect to ANY website it seems to take forever to connect. My wife's laptop running the normal release of 10 has same problem. Have tried everything i can think of but no success.
I just updated to Windows 10 but I think the problem was with Windows 8 too, Sometimes my internet is out on my PC while the internet is still up on my brothers PC, tho this problem happens about 3 times a very few days.. We have 5+ computers in the house and 4 are on daily while 3 is being used daily the 4th one is not very used daily and sometimes off most of the time. So the 2 computers have Windows 10 and 3rd computer has Windows 7 while the 4th computer has Windows 10 also. I read on an article which says that Windows 10 uses bandwidth without you know and I checked task manager and on windows 8 my CPU and Memory was just fine and when I upgraded to Windows 10 my CPU spiked to about 20% and Memory spiked to about 72% and sometimes random numbers appear on all 4 sections( CPU, Memory, Disk, Network).
I do not know why, but ever since (thats when I started downloading again) I have upgraded from windows 8.1 to windows 10, downloading is really difficult. when I was still using 8.1, I used Orbit downloader to download my files, but since I have upgraded to windows 10, all apps were lost, and for some reason I cant download Orbit again.
Now I have been switching from on Download manager to the other, from Eagle Get, IDM, Jdownloader. still my download speed SUCK, it is slow as a turtle. but when I am playing online games it is fine, my ping is good, when I am streaming videos it is also fast. but when it comes to downloading IT IS SLOW. why ? is it because of the download manager ? I remember updating my Battlefield 4 and the speed is good. but now, it so slow.
One of my computers has suddenly lost internet access, and as far as I can remember all I was doing last time I used it was going on the internet to websites I normally go to. All other computers and devices are fine. The computer in question says WiFi is connected, but no programs can access it including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and my VPN. I haven't noticed any other problems on that computer.
Here's what I've tried so far: Troubleshooting internet connection - no problems detected Scanning with Webroot - no threats detected Turning OFF Webroot - no change
When I try to access a website with Google Chrome I get the error message DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET.
I've been having this issue for a long time (not sure how long), some internet pages that require the browser to load resources/images/whatever are laggy as all hell. Sometimes they load fine, but other times it takes forever to load thumbnails of videos on Youtube or images on Google Images.I clean my cache and registry, using CCleaner, fairly often so it's not a clutter issue. I scan my computer fairly often too, using Malwarebytes and Windows Defender, and never found a threat so it's not a virus/malware issue. I have no internet toolbars, speed enhancing apps or any other programs of the kind. I also have my drivers up to date.
i just realise my laptop got a window 10 upgrade for free.My internet speed is not very fast, everytime i close and open it, it restart from 0%My internet download has no limit but its just not very fast...So can i pause and resume the download??
The problem i am currently facing is my pc have many application that uses internet continuously like (dropbox, gmail, messenger, thunderbird, sms checker) and my main application does not get enough speed to work on.
Any way through which i can give all the internet speed the computer is receiving to a particular application?
After downloading Windows 10, my internet speed went significantly down, from 35 mbps to 4 mbps. I recovered my original Windows 8.1, hoping it was the new Windows that was causing the problem, but my computer is still very slow compared to what it used to be. I know the problem is in my computer because the three other PC's in my house are all working at normal speeds. I ran a virus scan with no luck. Could the Windows 10 upgrade have installed something that's still slowing down my internet?
I got an aorus x5 about 1 week ago which came with windows 8.1 which I immediatly upgraded to windows 10, but the internet dowload speeds are incredibly slow purely on that laptop, I have tested the internet speeds using speedtest.net and on my old laptop (an msi gp60 2pe) I am getting 40.23 mbps download and 7.67 mpbs upload with a ping of 17ms on firefox, on my phone (a sony xperia z3) I am getting ping 20ms, download of 26.96mbps and upload of 8.84mbps on their app, and on my aorus I am getting anything from 0.01mbps to 4.36 mbps dowload and 8.67mbps to 8.92mbps upload with a ping of 9-14ms, having tested with edge, ie, firefox, chrome and opera. I am not running any amd hardware and I have disabled bandwith control through killer network manager, however at the time of writing when I test through killer I got 4.98 and through firefox I get 1.42 (both use speedtest.net), so I would assume it is a regulator of some sort, but I can't find one anywhere. I also get reasonable speeds through steam (around 11mbps) but it is quite a way off the 35 mbps down and 7mbps up I am supposed to get
I recently updated my HP ENVY laptop from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 & immediately started having issues with my WIFI speed. I was able to connect to the wireless network just fine with no limited connectivity, etc but the speed crawls. It's only my laptop...all other wifi devices are running with no noticeable difference. I went through a bunch of troubleshooting steps and couldn't get it to improve.
I was able to figure out my wifi speed is great when my laptop is connected to ac power, but immediately drops speed when unplugged. All of my initial troubleshooting was on battery power.
I checked the driver Power Management tab and unchecked the Allow the computer.... option. Also Control Panel-Power Options and changed the Wireless Adapter Settings to be on Maximum Performance for both On Battery & Plugged In.
Realtek RTL8188EE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter with updated driver.
Ever since i updated my laptop to windows 10, the fan has been running on full speed and i am not running anything intensive (just Firefox), task manager shows some Microsoft background task host and i really don't want to change back to 8.1.
I tested the internal HDD with CrystalDiskMark and was able to get 109 MBPS both on sequential read and write tests. Then, when I tested my 1 TB WD My Passport USB 3.0 External HDD with CrystalDiskMark the sequential read and write speed did not exceed 40 MBPS the few times I tried. Got similar 30-40 MBPS speed when transferring movies from external HDD to internal HDD.So far, I have tried updating the external HDD and USB 3.0 Controller drivers. Tried with 'USB selective suspend setting' disabled (Under Power Plan Options). Also tried with write caching enabled. But havent been able to solve the issue.My laptop is running Win 10 Home 64-Bit. I am sure I used the USB 3.0 port. And, I used the USB 3.0 cable supplied with the external HDD. I don't have another USB 3.0 device so cannot figure out whether the issue is with my laptop of the external HDD.'
I just replaced my old router (Linksys WRT54G) to a Linksys x1000. However, my download speed is slower than the previous router I had. I tried the following things to resolve this problem:
Upgrading to the latest firmware version;Updated my wireless network card drivers to the latest version;Switching between different channels (channel 1 and 5 and default channel). I have set Network Mode to: Mixed and I set Channel Width to Automatic (20 or 40 MHz).
When using my old router I had an average download speed of 1 MB/sec while using the new router I can't get pas 500 KB/sec. In both cases I was sitting next to the router.
Oh, and by the way, there's also a port on the router named DSL. It looks like it doesn't matter whether I connect that port to my modem. How come? What's its function?
I have an ASUS 2 speed router - it worked fine in Win 7, allowing me to target the 5.2 MHz stream toward my TV for streaming, and use the 2.5 MHz speed for the computers, tablets & phones.
Well, I lost my motherboard, and purchased a CPU with Windows 10. I cannot tell what the router is doing - Windows 10 seems to think I do not require this information, and will not allow me to even SEE the router settings, let alone change them. The stream to the TV seems fine - the CPU internet is slow.
I have three computer connect to the internet using a Router. When I was downloading Windows 10 insider preview one Computer may internet speed on the other two Computer slowed to 60% of what I normal get.
I have a peculiar issue with wifi on Windows 10. My computer shows a wifi link speed of 270 Mbps and i have tested the same by sending huge files over my network. Now the issue is that i strongly believe that something in Windows 10 is throttling the internet speeds drastically. I am only getting half of the subscribed download speeds on my Windows 10. I have other devices/phones connected to the same wireless network and they are getting full speeds!
I have tried several things but i am unable to achieve full download speeds on my Windows 10. This has been affecting me for the past around 15 days. Prior to that things used to be normal.
I've been experiencing an issue regarding opening up any web pages whatsoever for almost a week now. I have tried everything I can possibly think of, contacted my ISP, reset my router, updated the router firmware, tested my connection with a different router, run cmd to flush dns, reset log, you name it. Every device I connect via WiFi doesn't work either but the strangest of all is that my torrents downloads at its optimal download speed. I cannot understand what the problem is.
I did however test my router on a friend's adsl line and it gave the same problem whereas he's router wasn't giving any problems. I then decided that my router was at fault but then I did a test with a spare router to find the same problem - shows that there is a Internet connection, I am able to connect any device via WiFi and make use of my social networks but as far as browsing the web is concerned, whether it be on my desktop, laptop, phone, I just am not able to do that. My Antivirus is unable to update, my windows isn't updating, nothing works except for being able to use Facebook and twitter and whatsapp. I was concerned that 2 different routers could have the ecat same problem.
I opened my computer after having it been asleep all night; everything was working fine until I realized that my sound volume was stuck at a high level and no matter what I changed the volume to, it would not go down. Having had issues with my sound drivers before, I solved this by reinstalling the sound driver. I figured this would be the end of my issues for the day and restarted the computer to finalize the installation. Then windows installed updates, and when I got back into the system, I realized something was wrong. I have Advanced System Care 9, which comes with a real-time monitor of system usage (RAM and CPU), and I noticed that the CPU usage was much higher than it should be--usually it will be around 1-5% when I am not running anything (or just a few programs), but instead it was using 20-90% CPU, and the RAM would not go any lower than 24%.
However, I had had this issue before; Bitdefender Antivirus had started acting up a few days ago using up 90-100% CPU, and I had caught it using Microsoft Process Explorer. Removing Bitdefender solved the problem. So, naturally, I went to the process explorer to check what was using so much CPU again. But this time--nothing. The windows process explorer showed nothing using that much CPU. From there, I began to notice the rest of the problems: many functions of the task bar would not work, such as any of the toolbar icons, or the windows icon, or Cortana. Firefox would not open, either, and I could not get Steam to connect.
Also Ctrl+alt+delete did nothing but bring up an endless black screen, as did restarting. The only way to reboot is to force it by pressing the power button. Therefore I could not reach safe mode. From there I ran a myriad of virus/malware/adware scanners/cleaners/optimizers, none of which found or did anything to fix the problems, though my computer is now squeaky clean otherwise! Eventually I managed to get into safe mode by a very finicky method, which was by turning the computer off during startup which made it do a startup repair next time it turned on, from which I was able to enter safe mode.
And in safe mode--everything works. None of the described issues happen there. I am able to use all the windows features (aside from those blocked in safe mode), ctrl+alt+delete and restarting function properly, and I am able to connect to the internet and use firefox, everything works. So this means that there is something there causing the problems, and it is being blocked by safe mode, but I cannot find it! After running several more scanners, all of which found either nothing, or only small innocuous things, I ran Microsoft Safety Scanner, which found a "severe" trojan which was (I believe) called Dynammer!ac, and I figured this must have been the culprit--but no. Restarting and returning to normal mode resulted in the same problems occurring. Since then I have uninstalled/reinstalled a few drivers that were suggested to me to try, such as sound (the one that I had to replace before the problems started), and the display drivers, none of which fixed anything, either.
But I'm currently browsing the internet and typing to you.
In fact - I can do virtually everything (League; Steam; Skype; etc) except use any OS feature that requires logging in - e.g. Mail, User Accounts, Shop, etc. Then it says something along the lines of "Cannot use this service without an internet connection - please connect and try again." When I run Network Diagnostics as the prompt recommends - it says I am connected and cannot find a problem.
It doesn't always happen - but it seems to be determined on start-up. If I restart it now it might be working next launch - but 75% of the time it will encounter the same issue. It's been happening for months now but I've sort of gotten used to using my phone to check my emails - but I've now encountered an issue with one of my hard drives being unable to be searched (tried indexing, etc) and the only step I've found that I haven't tried says it could be a corrupted user account - but I cannot update my user account without "connecting to the internet". -_-
The system is up to date. No driver updates available.
Both the Windows 10 laptop and the Windows Vista laptop have discovery on and file and printer sharing on. The printer is connected to the Windows Vista laptop. The Windows Vista laptop can see the files within the Windows 10 laptop. The Windows 10 laptop can see the Windows Vista computer but as soon as it tries to see inside it gives an error about "spelling of the name, etc." If using the diagnosis tool it says "One or more network protocols are missing from this computer". "Resolving problems as administrator" does not solve anything.
