Preferred Solution: WLAN speed issue...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all

Before I installed Win7, I was running XP and I had a wireless LAN utility that allowed me to see real time WLAN speed.

Now the only info I can see is that my wireless link runs at 54Mb/s (given it's a draft-n network, it should run faster...) but I would like to be able to see what speed I am achieving. Does Win7 provide a utility, or is there a recommended app?


A:WLAN speed?

Yes. There are plenty of assorted gadgets that can do this. Right click your desktop for gadgets and then follow the link to get more gadgets online.

Here's another.
Rainmeter is cool too.

I finally got my WLAN set up and I'm getting ridiculously slow speed according to LAN Speed Test. When I say ridiculously slow I mean like 10 Mbps slow.

The router and all of the wireless cards are 802.11n. I have an excellent signal on both computers. I've tried two different routers and it made no difference.

My desktop is running Windows 7 Home Premium and my laptop is running Mac OS X 10.6.

Any help would be appreciated.

I want to measure the speed of LAN vs WLAN on my Dell XPS 15 (W 8.1).
It's clear that my Gigabit-LAN is faster than wifi, but by how much?
I use LAN at home, and WLAN when I'm away.
Does a program exist to compare the two?

It takes quite long before the computer "sees" the "new" LAN connection.
LAN is through a USB3.0-LAN adapter (the Dell has no LAN socket).

I am wondering if there is some problem with the Wlan Drivers / Windows.
I have a Intel AC7260 Wlan card with BT.
With BT off, I am achieving a speed of around 7,6 MB/s while transferring files over Network .
With BT on and no Device connected the speed stays at 7,6 MB/s.

Now, if I open Windows Settings>Manage Bluetooth the Wlan speed drops at once by around 2MB/s to around 5,2 MB/s and stays there. Once I close Settings, the speed goes at once up to the 7,6 MB/s.

Using the BT Device while transferring files the speed is 5,2 MB/s , no matter if Settings is open or not.

Seems that there is some problem with "Device Discovery" while it is not in Background.

I have 135Mbps link speed support ADSL WI-FI router. I have enabled 802.11b+g+n wireless mode and use 20+40 MHz on my router. I use "WAP-PSK" authentication. In addition to that, have a 2.4 & 5 GHz frequency support router and client device.

But my network connection display (WLAN) I have a 54Mbps link speed, why is that? How do I use 135Mbps or at least 100Mbps link speed? Is it a some configuration issue? My Ethernet connection show full speed (100Mbps).

(I'm not talking about my internet connection speed).

I have a new notebook (with Intel ProSet Wireless chip) which should be able to connect to the WLAN-Rouer with 802.11 n speed.

The WLAN-Router/AP itself offers as well 802.11 n feature.
Currently for testing purposes the WLAN-Router/AP stands just 1 m distance with no wall in between.

However when I launch my Win7 on Notebook it connects only with 54Mbit which is far below the possible speed. Another notebook just aside the first one offers 130Mbit speed.
So WLAN-Router/AP is not the problem.

Is there a settings in Win7 wlan network setup which prevents my Win 7 to connect to WLAN-Router/AP with a higher speed?

If you are seeing 54Mbps as the max, that is what you get with 802.11g. So it sounds like you are in G mode for some reason. Try looking at the Advanced settings for this adaptor in Device Manager and see if it's set to use wireless n.

You should also make sure your router is set to use the 802.11n Only setting, so it's not running in mixed mode.

I cant give much advice on what to do here besides to make sure the drivers are updated and to maybe check if your wireless card is loose or broken. Or just simply buy like a $30 netgear usb wireless card.

I have a wireless network USB 2 adaptor which up until a few days ago worked without issue.

My system runs Windows XP Home and is up to date with all updates.

My adaptor will no longer connect to my network and I get the display that it cannot find a certificate to connect.
It cannot be the network or modem as I can connect my laptop wirelessly on my Windows 7 platform.
I have tried the on board repair program without success.

My network adaptor details:

WLAN USB 2 54Mbps Adaptor.

Can anyone offer any advice?

Thank you in advance.

Have you change the router or security on the router at all ?

you may have the IEEE 802.1x authentication set

Hold the Windows key and press Pause key, should open to allow device manager to be seen, see the menu on the left hand side

on a laptop you may need to use Hold the Windows key and press FN key + the pause key

If the above does not work then

Start > control Panel > system > hardware Tab >device manager button

Once you are in device manager then navigate to:

network adaptors, click on the + > ​Right-click your Connection and select Properties --> Click on the Authentication tab --> Disable / uncheck the option IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network.
re start the PC
Now, connect to your Wireless network;

The issue remains.  I have been thinking if this is a defective wireless adapter or if it is a OS problem. Anyway, please if someone has had the same issue and solved it, give me a hand. Oh, also, the notebook is still in warranty period, so going under the hood is not an option, yet ;-) Thanks in advance.

Hey all,
I am having a issue with my ASUS F5GL laptop. Everytime I resume from a hibernation, I have to first flick the WLAN switch to on, leave it for about 3 secs, then flick it back to on, then use the hotkey to switch it off, then to switch it on otherwise my network connection is displayed "Unidentified Network" and Windows will not find any WLAN acces pointss, even when I sit right next to one. Does anyone else have this problem, or is it just my laptop?

Hi all,

This is my first post here, and I'm in need of some help. My WLAN has stopped working. It IS enabled in BIOS. Drivers are up-to-date.

I'm running a Lenovo Y560, Win7. Ethernet LAN is still working (obviously).

Here's some pictures:



Fn+F5 (Wireless on/off), as well as the physical Wireless On/Off switch on the front of the laptop, does nothing.

I have an XPS 13 9350 running Windows 7 64bit with a Dell 1820a 11ac wireless adaptor and when connecting any USB or thunderbolt dock with a Realtek wired adaptor the wlan switching to LAN does not work. Both wired and wired remain on and I have the latest wireless driver from Dell. No where in the BIOS does it show a setting to turn on or off WLAN/LAN auto switching. Now if we use the Windows 10 OS on the XPS the lan/wlan switching works. Any ideas or is this a limitation to the driver on Windows 7?

Havn't been here for a while but I now have a big issue... I run a Win7 64bit PC...

My screen has started to freeze contantly and my only common issue here is my WLAN card (ANATEL). When the PC is stable (ish) the WLAN card dissapears and there is no option through network setings to check it's properties. It's intermittent except it seems to have permanently vanished now. I use my PC only on wireless and not through the LAN.

Since the WLAN card has stopped working I'm not getting any screen freezes (at the moment) .. the only big install recently was the SP1 for 64bit which loaded last week.

I have now removed the WLAN card and now looking into a new one but maybe the problem is a simple one or maybe more to do with the motherboard.... who knows! Any ideas would be appriciated.

A:Screen Freezes possible WLAN card issue


I assume that you have the latest drivers for said WLAN card? If not that is your first port of call.

I had a similar issue with a WLAN card on Vista years ago, intermittent freezing etc. Newer drivers helped but the manufacturer was slow at releasing fully compatible drivers. I returned the card.

If you have the latest (and certified drivers) then it may be hardware specific faults.

Are you able to remove the card and try it in a non Win7 PC?

A:Tecra 9000 - WLan and New Hardware issue


Tecra 9000 was equipped optional with WLan and with BT module.
This means that not all units support the WLan and BT capability.

Anyway, if you found the WLan and BT label at the bottom o the unit then you T9000 should support both features.

Firstly you should ensure that the WLan was enabled correctly. The hardware switch at the notebooks side must be enabled. The FN+F8 key combination switches between the BT and WLan. So if you want to use WLan you have to use the FN+F8

I don?t know why the FN keys don?t work on your T9000. Maybe some tools and drivers are missing. Therefore try to reinstall the drivers from the Toshiba page. You should find it in the ARCHIVE.

I think the unknown device could refer to the BT module and the missing BT driver.
The BT driver could be downloaded here from this page:

A:HP DX2200 - Compatibility Issue with D-Link DWL-G520 WLAN


We use a lot the DX2200 systems at work and I have noticed on a lot of them that in the BIOS, if a PCI card is installed, that the BIOS “video” settings will set the Video device to PCI or PCI Express first.

You might want to try to set this to the “on-board” video (assuming you are using that as your adapter).

If you need the exact directions and details on this, I will gladly go through the BIOS settings and gather that for you.

I’m currently using a motherboard out of one of the DX2200’s to build a small server and a simple task has become a major project thanks to HP’s non-support of Windows Server 2003 for drivers and so forth. The boards seem to be MSI boards, but looks to be explicit for HP and you cannot find any support on these boards through MSI.

So, if anyone else is considering using this board for Windows Server 2003, beware!!

I purchased this laptop early September and I am super happy with it, but there's two minor things that annoy me and I haven't been able to fix yet:

1) When coming out of sleep or standby, it never automatically re-connects to the wireless it's on, I have to manually do this every time. The windows Wireless service is running fine, so that's not it, but what is?

2) Sometimes the touchpad will stop working randomly and I have to either use a mouse or reboot to fix it. I have reinstalled the touchpad drivers. Turning the touchpad off/on using the function keys does not solve the problem.

Any help would be appreciated!

I have four computers that are connected at any given time to the home network. I believe have two issues here.

The first, all of the computers connect and surf the Internet at very slow speeds. Sometimes it seems like I'm back on Dial-up. My MacBook (which is my main computer I work from) connects to the Internet with an Ethernet cable directly into the DSL box. Even if I turn the other three computers off in the office I still run slow on the Internet. Any thoughts on how to improve this? My DSL provider says its an issue with our setup. Great thanks for the help!

Second, my Mac overall seems to be running very slow. I have over 14GB of available space so I would not think that the computer is in overload.

Any support would be greatly appreciated.

A:Moving at turtle speed - Internal Network issue or DSL issue?

If you have more than one computer, and all exhibit the same symptoms, it's hard to believe they're all bad.
Pick one that doesn't exhibit any other issues and do this:

Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

I am setting up a new wireless router and new laptop.

The laptop sees the WLAN (name) in Control Panel -> Networking -> Sharing and Network, but this WLAN (name) does not show up in the laptop's 'WLAN selector list' when I click on the network icon that's in the system tray.

I hope my description, above, makes sense. If so, does this problem description suggest an area of configuration that I have done incorrectly?

Thanks for any hints.

A:WLAN in Control Panel but not in system tray WLAN list

The new router needs to be setup with the SSID not hidden. Also the router needs to be set for the same type of wireless that the devices use.

@ginoversace?, welcome to the forum. Your RAM is Double Data Rate (DDR).  Therefore, if you take 800 MHz x 2 you have 1600 MHz. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

I recently added memory to my Gateway FX 7026 quad core. After I was done with the process, during the post process an error flashed across (too quick to capture unfortunately), but it had to do with a Microsoft Handler of some sort. The net result is that my cpu cooling fan is running constantly at top speed now. I have had the system for 6 months and it has never run like this before.

Any ideas?

Hello Erekosa, welcome to Vista forums!

Seeing that you're having issues with new RAM installed and 'handler' issues; it may be that the 'new' RAM is bad! (it happens)

The best option would be to burn Memtesr86 to a CD and test each stick individually for at least one full pass.

Keep us informed!

I have recently just got Virgin Media 10mb connection (wireless). Me and my friend share this connection, he has a mac i have a pc(laptop). It seems that my friend can get near enough full speed with downloads etc (tested on, my friend got nearly 10mb download speed, however I averaged at 6mb. Another example, my friend downloaded a file from a website, the speed went at about 1.5mb/s, I then downloaded the exact same file directly after his download had finished, my average download speed was 250kb/s.
My wireless card is "intel(r) pro/wireless 3945abg", it is a 54mb/s card so it should be more than capable to get the full 10mb/s that is offered to me. Any help in how to 'de-restrict' my card to obtain the full speed?

Any help is appreciated!

I am taking a class at my school, and they lent us these older Dell laptops that run at 1.3ghz, have 800mhz fsb, and contain 256mb ddr ram (loaded up bios on the computer to see). What I can't figure out is the fact that whenever I log on using the schools user name, the computer takes a good 30 seconds logging on, and starts out with 100% usage of the cpu, although only has 22 processes. I end around six or seven of them, although the computer speeds up, it is still slow. It could probably use a good defragmenting, though it wouldn't slow down that much, right? Also, the computers are very restricted. I know some bugs with Xp that can remove the administators password, but I won't touch these computers further than I have.

A:Speed issue

Hi cfitzarl,

I don't know if there are 1.3 GHZ CPU's with a 800MHZ FSB. I think those 800MHZ FSB CPU's are Northwood's C (A or B, donīt know ), and Prescotts.
There are 1.3GHZ P4's, with 400MHZ FSB, some P3's with 133FSB, etc.

Regarding the machine, I'd defragment it, but it would take a while. I don't think that you have time to do it.
Also, it could have viruses, and crap like that.

Anyways, 1.3 GHZ is a little slow for windows XP, so don't expect miracles, especially if they have a normal coppermine Celeron CPU.

I have ran virus scan and several disk defrag waht could be wrong.

A:Speed issue

Does that computer come with onboard graphics? And if so did you disable it in the BIOS and or uninstall it in device manager? Was the Pro installed fresh? Have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the GPU drivers? In the BIOS you'll find a setting that says Init Display First. If you switched from onboard to a graphics card that need to be changed from PCI to AGP or PCI express depending on the systems configuration. The other thing is when the graphics become jerky like that it is often either a GPU unable to handle the applications graphics (like an old card trying to play a new game), or it's a GPU heat issue, but with the heat thing you would probably be getting artifacts (patchy areas that aren't rendering properly) as well.

Is that the speed that you are seeing when you download a file or is it through a speed test?

Also, if that is the speed while downloading a file but your speed test is fine; Does the download start high then drop down?

That is not a bad speed at all. The advertized speed is the maximum, rarely achieved in real situations. The location of your internet connection is where WildBlue's servers connect you to the internet.

Not sure what to say about your video problem except that when I had a 2 mbps connection, I watched YouTube without many delays. A lower quality feed may help.

Hi guys after installing some new RAM i checked CPU-Z to see if all was ok, and it doesn't seem to be.

I bought some Crucial Ballistix 8Gb 1866MHz, however is doesn't seem to be running at 1866 more like 667MHZ.

I have a Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3 and a AMD FX-4100

Is there way i can force the speed on the RAM to 1866?

Any input is greatly appreciated.


A:Memory Speed Issue

CPU-Z reports the clock frequency of the RAM. DDR (DDR2, DDR3) transfer data twice per clock tick, so CPU-Z reports 667MHz for DDR3-1333.

Most motherboards seem to run DDR3-1333 and up at DDR3-1333 by default. To get the higher frequency, you'd either need to set the BIOS to use XMP, or manually set the RAM frequency and timings.

A:Issue on download speed

First what kind of internet service do you have, and what speed.
Test your internet using dsl reports, or speedtest. I prefer speedtest: - The Global Broadband Speed Test

How are you connecting to the internet, wired or wireless. Also as a side note the slow download speeds could also be on the downstream server end. The number of simultaneous downloads, they might throttle back the server to save bandwith, etc.

Hello everyone, I am using a linksys WRT54GS wireless router and usually works fine, but lately I noticed it's been getting slow speeds and then when I restart the router it goes back to normal and very fast for about 20-30 minutes (could vary and be longer sometimes).

When I bypass the router it works fine with direct connection, all my firmware is upgraded, getting 100% signal strength, it's not just my computer because when I ping from the router admin panel it gets all request timed out aswell.

I'm running a DSL connection from a router to my wireless laptop. Regularly my speeds aren't quite as advertised but I still get 2-4 Mb/s generally. Lately it seems my web browsing has been sluggish and doing a speed test, this is proven.

However, bittorrent downloads go much faster than normal browsing.

Can anyone explain to me why this might be? I thought my slow speed could be due to my latency, but that doesn't explain to me why bittorrent is so much faster!

When I connect the WHS to a cable upstairs (short cable) I get Gigabit connection speed, however when I put the server downstairs (10 metre cable), I only get 100 Mb LAN speed.

The only difference is the CAT-5e cable and length.

Do I need a shielded CAT-5e or a CAT-6 cable.

Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

What I tried:
1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

Any ideas?

Windows 10? new DELL XPS I intel laptop two days ago I opted for gb RAM and SSD I was torn between this and the macbook pro for university I have never had apple and decided to stick with microsoft just for ease of use with onedrive and what I know I have always heard negative things about windows but have had a chromebook up until now After researching Dell's laptop I thought surely a gb RAM and SSD would mean I would not have any issues unfortunately after onyl two days of using it I am getting slow responses Some examples just clicking on cortana it seems to crash occassionaly I opened a rd tab on Microsoft edge and the screen lagged and crashed for - seconds Opened a PDF from gmail which had pages laptop froze for seconds Opening microsoft word takes way too long and loads for a while My internet is fine IMO is this the laptop Windows or a mixture of both I really thought a laptop of this quality should manage to run windows with no issues Has anyone got any ideas Thanks

Hi I'm currently having a problem with my win7 64 bit desktops wireless speed. It has recently decided to slow to a crawl I'm talking to the point where the speed is measured in bytes not kilobytes when accessing the net and downloading files. I know it's the computer not my network as other wifi gear still works at full speed.

The only change I have made is to switch antivirus from kaspersky to mcafee, I use a Asus wl-138g v2 wifi card( I know it's old but it's been very reliable until now). Any help would be apreciated, thanx in advance.

After having problems with IE 11 on my old eMachine with Win-10 (Home)/ Comcast server I installed Chrome. It works good but the speed test resulted in 1/3rd the speed of IE 11 or FireFox. Several typical dead end suggestions (Internet ?sperts) I assume that Chrome has some setup problems, but cannot find the cure. Any suggestions? BTW, both IE and FF run ~125 Mps, Chrome~45.

A:Internet Download Speed Issue

Hi NomadAU, welcome to Seven Forums.

I recently had similar problems with my Netgear DGN2000. It would download on my wired desktop pc at a snails pace. On my laptop, speed was excellent. When I wired my laptop to my router it would load my home page only and gave No Internet connection. If I moved the ethernet cable to any other ports on the router to my desktop pc it would give No Internet connection.
Removing all connection related settings from both pc's and resetting router to factory default did nothing to improve anything. So I bought a Netgear DGN2200v3, now normal service resumed.

So originally I was using a Rosewill USB HDD Dock with my WD HD103SI 1 TB Hard Drive. Everything went great, but eventually filled that up. I bought a new WD HD103SJ 1 TB Hard Drive, formatted it as NTFS, but the speeds are horrible. Transfer rates say around 2.0 mb/s give or take .5 mb/s, so it takes around an hour to transfer a 4 GB file to the hard drive, whereas it took 4 minutes on my other one. I didn't change any settings, I just plopped a new hard drive into the same HDD dock, but the speeds I am getting on that hard drive are poor. I also noticed that the file text on the hard drive is in blue? not sure why that is...

I recently reinstalled XP on my computer after erasing my entire HD, the problem is that it seems to be a lot slower for some things. For example, when I open a folder and drag the window across the screen, it's extremely laggy, when it used to be perfectly fine and smooth. Or when I scroll down on a webpage, it's also very slow and the frame rate, I guess, is horrible.

I suspect this might be because the Windows partition is 5GB instead of 30GB on my HD.

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

A:Noticeable speed change + HD issue

Also, I have a USB mass storage device and windows has made it the C:\ drive, and the internal HD is now J:\ How do I correct this?

You disconnect the external hard drive and then do a full re-install of Windows and during it you make it do the drive C:\ First backup any important data and format the drive that the Windows XP is installed on now.

Here are instructions on doing a full install of Windows XP

I have recently chosen a new ISP and am paying for a 1Mbps connection.The problem is that i get a very low download speed of say 16Kbps only when i download using IE. Howver when i use a download manager speeds move up to 100 Kbps and the download gets completed in 1/7th of the time.

Another thing that seems related is that even if i download 6 -7 files at one time (simultaneously) each one will download at around 16 - 18 Kbps totalling to the same overall seed that i expect to get on my 1Mbps connection

Is there something i can try from my end before i blame my ISP?

Hi all

My LAN interface connects only with 100Mb/s speed with no reason though it is 1Gbit capable card (Intel 82577LC). I tried it with 3 devices (router, switch, PC directly) and a lot of cables, which are works with 1 GE speed between each other except for Toshiba laptop.

Did anybody meet this problem too? Is there any fix for it?

A:LAN 1G speed issue in Satellite R630-143

The integrated Intel 82577LC Lan card supports the 10 BASE-T / 100 BASE-TX and 1000 BASE-T network standards.

Usually you can change some LAN card options in the LAN card properties.
Go to device manager -> LAN card (Ethernet) -> click right and choose Properties.
Switch to ?Advanced? tab.

Now you should see all options which could be optimized

Hello everyone,

This is an issue mainly with my hard-drive and not Windows 8. I attached an image to help resolve this problem. Whenever the 'Data transfer rate' reaches 100% I get huge performance issues. This happens whenever I deal with a few running programs that are accessing and writing data.

The speed transfer of this HD is about 3Gbits I think and is interfaced with SATA. Does this mean I have to buy a new HD with larger transfer rate or am I missing something?

I used to run Windows 7 but switched to 8 and with the new task manager I 'managed' to notice the performance with my HD.

Just installed this game and by default this game runs on my Integrated Graphics and not the High-Performance NVIDIA Processor. Running using the Integrated Graphics, the game main menu was lagging like it was around 5-10 fps. Scrolling the options was so slow and quite annoying. However the gameplay was smooth, only at the main menu was lagging.

Running the game using High-Performance NVIDIA Processor settings, all were smooth, both main menu and gameplay. However I cannot choose to run this game using the High-Performance NVIDIA Processor by default, I don't know why.

Is there any way to force this game to run using the High-Performance NVIDIA Processor ?

I already go to NVIDIA Control Panel and set the game to run using High-Performance NVIDIA Processor. But when I ran the game it still use the Integrated Graphics.

What could be the problem?

I've upgraded from Windows 7 to 8 on my Vaio VPCSB series laptop ; all my programs and settings are restored but the Stamina-Speed switch does not work. PC only can detect onboard VGA , I've deleted old ATi drivers with Driver Swpeer and Installed Windows 8 drivers but no luck so far... Any suggestions?

I have the same issue on my VPCSB190X as well. I'm running with a AMD Radeon 6470M.

A:HP 4510s - Editing DSDT table - Fan Speed Issue

Well, managed to find lines responsible for Fan speed controll, and after changing and updating, fan is still on 100%, even tried to set all values to 10% or 20% etc, it just ignores it and its still on full power, system is cold, its not overheating issue... Only thing i can try is to reinstall windows (win 7 x64) but I doubt it will help... Suspecting its hardware issue (altho I crossed that possibility)... Anyone had similar issue maybe?

Hello everyone I'm really hoping someone here can give me a hand I've been tossed back and forth between twitch issue / streaming upload low to (Due speed) gaming tv support my ISP and a few other forums that mainly discuss internet speeds Here is some basic information to get started Location Edmonton Alberta streaming / gaming issue (Due to low upload speed) Canada PC Lenovo Y P Laptop OS Windows Modem Hitron CGNM- -SHW ISP Shaw Communications streaming / gaming issue (Due to low upload speed) Broadband Package Additional Information My laptop is plugged directly into the back of my modem using a ethernet cord Problem Extremely low upload speed despite one service Ookla Speedtest telling me that i'm getting what I pay for I'm having issues live streaming games on twitch tv video buffers for my viewers having issues watching livestreams buffers occasionally - guess this might be a common issue and i'm also have some really bad ping in games like Path of Exile Here are some speed tests The first one is using Ookla this one is partnered with my ISP so they use this to determine if i'm getting the speeds i'm paying for unfortunately this service says that everything is okay I've included both a speed test for here in Edmonton Alberta And another test for the server that is closest to the twitch tv server out in Seattle WA Ookla seems to look okay I should be able to stream with these speeds no problem Now after speaking with twitch support staff they advise that I use other services to determine why when I try to live stream i'm buffering for my viewers This is the test done at testmy net This service tells me that i'm only getting Kbps Which is definitely much lower than either of the above tests And the last test is the most important one they mentioned that I try and run as this test determines which server I have the strongest connection to in order to live stream http i imgur com sNFzLs png This above image is stating that I have Quality Basically telling me that i'm unable to stream I had one of my friends who lives about minutes away from me who is also using Shaw - but on a lower plan Broadband run all of these tests His Ookla came back fine he scored a Mbps on testmy net and then linked me this image to his Twitch Bandwidth test https cdn discordapp com attachments PNG Now that i've explained everything here are the steps i've already taken to try and rectify my issue Restarted Computer Restarted Modem Tested on Wireless Tested using different ethernet cord Contacted ISP Ran Malware Bytes and Virus Scan Tested Wifes Acer laptop Booted up in safemode Contacted ISP and got a replacement modem - from a Cisco to a Hitron Reformatted my computer Downloaded the most up to date LAN drivers Posted on this forum After all of these steps i'm still left with no improvement My ISP can't do anything as they base is solely off of Ookla If anyone has any other suggestions - i'm all ears Thanks
