Networking :: Laptop Loads Some Internet Pages Really Slowly
Oct 1, 2015
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 recently got a new laptop and I've been having trouble with connecting to the internet. Several times a day, internet pages will stop loading and Windows diagnostics will come up with the message "The default gateway is not available". This is fixed by resetting the Wifi adapter. I've contacted my ISP and they say that there's nothing wrong with my connection so I'm guessing it's either something wrong with my laptop or the router.
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.

I can't get my internet to work properly, on any browser. Most websites will come up with either "408 Request Time-Out", or "ERR_EMPTY_RESPONSE", "ERR_CONNECTION_RESET", with the request time-out one being the least frequent. But for some reason this does not affect every website. I can still get to youtube and google just fine, and Tumblr too, until just a few minutes ago, and now I can't reach that either. I've already tried clearing my cookies and cashe, reulting in no discernible difference. I don't know what to do.
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.
I have a laptop running Windows 7 that is connected to a printer. I am connected to the internet using a WiFi connection. I have a homegroup called workgroup. My wife has a laptop running Windows 7, connects to the internet using the same WiFi modem and prints using the printer on my laptop.
I downloaded Windows 10 on to my Windows 7 laptop and all of a sudden my wife can't print anymore. Microsoft, you've done it again. How I hate this!
I fooled around with HomeGroup settings on the Windows 10 laptop and the system attributes on my wife's laptop and now I can see her computer on my Windows 10 system. But I cannot see the printer on my system from her laptop.
I tried to click on my compueter from her laptop and I get a request for username and password. I don't know what username and password to use. I gather from reading the forum that I should put the name of my laptop in the username but I don't know where to look for the password.
For some reason, ever since i built my computer back in late 2014, it has been going very slow. Programs take awhile to start up and the initial boot takes about 5-7 minutes. However, all the games I play run very well. I actually overclock both my CPU and GPU with low temps. My specs are as follows:
GPU: AMD Gigabyte R9 270 w/ 2gigs vRAM CPU: AMD FX 6300 OC'd to 4.0GHz RAM: 8gigs of 1333MHz DDR3 Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P PSU: Sentey 725w
Edit: I forgot to mention that the USB 3.0 ports rarely work. This has been a problem ever since I got the mobo. I will probably just call Gigabyte at some point if no is able to figure that out
Started experiencing this problem like 3 days back.When I click icons on the taskbar (including Cortana, Network, Battery, and Action Center) in Windows 10 Pro Build 10586 , the expected flyout does not open or sometimes it opens too slowly like 2 or 4 minutes after i clicked. Cortana is not at all responsive even after clicking...Start button is working fine right now but seems to have started a bit lag..
I have installed windows 10 pro a couple of days ago and I now experience a strange behavior from excel (office 2013). I suspect this worked when booting new OS for the first time.
When I open any excel file from any location on any hard drive (ssd or hdd) it takes around 10 or more seconds for the file to open. When first opening excel itself and opening any file from inside of excel, everything is instant. This issue is not uncommon, however none of the solutions I found online worked for me.
I also tried to run windows without any non-microsoft services, disabled all start up programs, issue remained. Reinstalled office too. All the other office programs work correctly.
I have installed windows 10 from windows 7 and now I have problems with my laptop keyboard, it affects all keys. The keys have to be pressed very slowly to work. I rebooted yesterday and it was ok for a while then the problem returned. It has taken me 6 minutes to type this in.
I upgraded from win 7 ultimate to win 10 pro, but then downgraded back to 7 because my HP laptop was overheating all the time.
My problem is that the WIFI show connected with internet access, but I can't open any website or do any download (tried many browsers, the wifi is workin on my phone, and the driver is installed and rechecked, and did troubleshooting).
I have a Dell M3800 and a work colleague has a Lenovo something, both pretty new. We have both upgraded to Win 10 and have no internet access. We can see our wifi devices in device manager, but no wifi shows up. Direct wired connections also don't work.
I have win 10 on 2 pcs and an old laptop, all with no issues.
My laptop is indicating that it is connected to my home network and that it has internet access but when I go to the network center it says that it doesn't have any connections. Attaching an ethernet cable doesn't work (which was an earlier problem too) I already updated my drivers and ran the troubleshooter but it didn't work. I also restarted my router so I did most things I can. Side note: It happened really suddenly from one moment to the other...
my Toshiba Satellite has Windows 10 and it shows that it's connected to the internet though when i try and run chrome it say's it's not connected when i run steam it say's it cannot connect to the steam network.
I bought a new Lenovo G50 laptop a month ago. I updated from 8 to 10. Now, my VLC as well as my Windows Media player freeze. My Chrome and Edge also freeze with certain websites such as Facebook and news sites. Other sites are fine, such as this.
I just setup windows 10 mobile preview on my Nokia Icon last night. Last night the Start screen wasn't loading after about 5 minutes, and figured it was just updating, so I went to bed and left phone on. (screen says "Loading . . .", disappears, then "Loading . . .", etc)
This morning I load up phone, and it is doing the same thing. I cannot get the start screen to load.
However, it appears everything else is fairly functional: I'm able to open Cortana, I can launch internet browser, I can surf the web, I can send a text from Cortana, etc. But as soon as I go to start screen, it never loads.
Initially, the screen would loop on "Loading . . .". If I held down the back button, the tasks would show a blank Start task. But after I get cortana or another app to open, when I try to go 'home', it shows "Loading . . ." once, then immediately goes back to the app -- and if I check the tasks, it never shows 'Start'.
Ever since I got my computer (which came with Windows 10), I've had trouble connecting to the internet. Every time I shut down and start it up again, it's never online even though I'm using a cat 5 cable hooked directly to the source. My laptop can connect wirelessly, so that's how I know my internet is fine, but it's a Mac (which I'm currently using) so it's a completely different OS.
Usually if I went into the command prompt and did ipconfig /release then /renew, it fixes it, and I'm online. But ever since doing a recent Windows Update that trick doesn't seem to be working anymore. I.E. ipv4 and ipv6 are enabled, tried turning off Firewall temporarily to see if that was the issue, tried uninstalling antivirus software.
When I used to use XP I could see a little yellow warning when it drops out. Now with win10 all it shows is a little white wifi connection symbol and it says it's connected to the network.
How can I have a monitor to see if my internet is connected in win10 NOT JUST THE WIFI NETWORK!
I solve one problem and another pops up to slow me down for half a day looking for solutions. I don't have a reliable connection any more, it keeps dropping out. I need to know these things because if I'm half way through a forum message or email then when I press send I lose the lot and have to type it all over again after refreshing the browser. I just need to know when it drops out so I can copy everything I've typed into the clipboard before I hit send.
I downloaded windows 10 the first day I was able to access the internet. Now it's saying its limited. I troubleshooted and it says it does not have valid IP configuration and in the wireless connection it says unidentified network. It says public network shouldn't it be on private? Need straightening this out. Like I said it worked fine one day and now its says no interternt and limited. Sigh.
