Need a High Speed processor in computer with a D Link?

Q: Need a High Speed processor in computer with a D Link?

I just got high speed internet. I bought a D Link so I could have wireless throughout the house. My husband uses an old computer for his genealogy and wants wireless on it for research. I bought a USB D Link for it, but it still won't connect. Does the computer need a high speed processor? If so, can I put one in myself without much help?

Preferred Solution: Need a High Speed processor in computer with a D Link?

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.)

I recently bought a used computer from my girlfriend's work. It is a Dell Dimensio 8100 with a Pentium 4 1.6 GHz and 128 Mb RAM (working on XP). The computer was completely wiped out with just XP and office installed. I realize this is not the ideal RAM to be running XP on, but it seems to be fine for just opening and using the internet (which is really all I'll be using it for). However, I came into some issues while opening video. For example, I was on and tried to open a video, but i waited over 10 minutes before I gave up. Is this result of the slow processor or the lack of RAM? I read that increasing RAM to 512 might not even help with video if the Pentium is so slow. Should I just give up on it and just use it for simple internet use, or will upgrading the RAM help me with my problems?

OK, just bought two used laptops with fresh installs of XP. They are identical Gateway 450ROG's that have 1.4 P4 M processors. However, right clicking my computer shows a P4 M 1.4 running at 587 mhz. I looked int eh BIOS and it shows a 1.4. It's plugged into power. I remember there's a setting on laptops to throttle it back under battery power but don't know why this is doing so, on both, on A/C adpater power.

Can someone point me in the correct direction?

Gey gues, I'm looking into buying a new laptop. Which is better in your opinion

512 mb of RAM and 1.4 processor


728 -1gig RAM and a 1.4 processor

Which would be faster?


A:New laptop computer.. Get more processor speed or extra RAM

In truth, I doubt that you'll notice ANY difference between 512mb and 1gig. I have a desktop here with 512mb, and another with 1gig. Both have similar speed processors, though one is an AMD 2400+ and the other is a P4-2.4gig. I don't see any difference in anything I so, and I have been unable to ever consume nearly all the RAM in the 512mb machine, even with many applications open. Both machines run W2K, and XP would be similar, though a little more memory useage.

Hi all,
I want to connect my VCR to the computer to transfer old home movies to DVD.
The Analog to DV device requires a 1 GHz processor. Mine is 498 MHz.

Regarding the speed, will the device work only slowly or not at all?


A:Solved: Video capture device speed vs. processor speed

It is not a matter of slow or not at all. It is most likely a matter of dropped frames. If you have a cheaper video capture card [one without hardware decoding] it will probably work however you will not like the result.

Video editing / encoding is cpu intensive. I would hate to think how long it would take to encode the video file after you capture it [with that cpu]

To give you some idea, it takes me about 15 min to encode approx 1hr of video with an intel dual core cpu. With yours it will be hours.

Recently, I reinstalled my Netgear wna3100 driver. Ever since then, I've been experiencing problems with high pings in games where I normally never had problems with. Pages load slowly even just the home page of Google.

I've attached my ipconfig picture. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A:High download speed and signal, high ping in games, slow page loads

To Disable Selective Suspend:

open the control panel
go to power options (you may have to set view to small icons)
click change plan settings
in the window that opens:
click change plan settings
click change advanced power settings, expand usb and ensure usb selective suspend is disabled.

I would also (while the device is plugged in)
go into the control panel - system - device manager - click the properties for it and make sure it's set to always on there as well.
I don't think the ipconfig can tell us much here since it's a data rate problem of some sort and not a actual connection problem from the sound of it.

The two things I mention above will hopefully keep your system from putting the device in 'low power mode' which may , or may not help your current problem.

I'm also curious if your system has recently slowed down in any other ways?

I need to order a new desktop for my office to replace a 3 year old machine that runs at 3.2 Ghz. The new machines that Dell offers only has this option:

Intel® Core™2 Extreme QX6700 (8MB L2 Cache,2.66GHz,1066 FSB)

I don't think there is a standard measuring stick that is used to compare all the processor speeds that I can find or understand. I work with CAD programs that use up a lot of resources and I typically get the fastest available and max the RAM. With all the latest software that I have to install, I need the new machines to run faster than the ones they replace.

Can anyone tell me how this 2.66GHz processor compares to my current machine? I don't have the exact specs for it, this is what it lists on the dell support site for my system - PROCESSOR, 80532K, 3.2GHZ, 1M, 533, M0.

I have wireless internet through my cable provider. My signal strenght varies from 5 to 48 mbps on most days. Why isn't the signal consistent and what causes my internet to get so slow. Is there anything I can my cable provider?

A:High speed internet not so high speed

"call my cable provider?"

No. You are mixing up some terms, but it doesn't sound like this is an ISP problem.

For now I'm going to assume that you have cable internet service and a wireless router. If not, please describe. If so, please post the brand and model of your modem and router (or modem/router combo).

Wireless signal strength is usually given in terms of "n bars out of 5" or "good," "excellent," etc. What is yours, and does it vary? How close is the PC to the router, and what obstructions are in the way?

When your bandwidth varies from 5 to 48mbps it could be an adapter or driver or router problem, but more likely is wireless interference. Are there other wireless networks on your same (or close) channel?

Some people first just try changing channels (in North America the non interfering channels are 1, 6 and 11) without trouble shooting to see if that helps.

If you are having difficulty determining the channels of the networks you detect use NetStumbler for help:

I am going to be buying a new computer in the near future and was wondering if backups, file copying, and defragging will speed up very much?

It seems like that at some point, the drives would not be able to keep up with the processor and faster processors would not be needed for many or even most applications.

I am using a 1 ghz Pentium 3 computer now and am going to get a new 3 ghz computer next.

The main point of having a faster processor is that it runs games smoother, compresses audio and video faster, and so on. These tasks are not particularly dependent on hard disk performance. Nearly all applications will benefit from a faster processor regardless of the speed of the hard disk.

Hi there.

I've a canon a480 digital camera and I'm connecting it to an asus m2n mx se motherboard. Both devices are high speed but the camera is recognized as a full speed device.

I'm running windows xp service pack 2. I checked the device manager and the enhanced usb host controller is listed and seems to be working OK.

So...I'm stuck...Any hints will be greatly appreciated!

i have check online, full speed = 12 mb/s , high speed = 480 mb/s

First question... Are they high speed hubs?
I have an older 4 port Dlink here that's never run 480... looking into the chip on the internal circuit board, it turns out to be a 12mbps chip... you can slow them down, but you can't scare them into running faster.

Hi All,

I have an Adaptec USB 2 Connect 4000 B in my PC and just realized that two of the ports are not recognized as high speed. I was running off of the windows default driver so I went and updated the driver and after all ports were "optimized" I thought the problem was solved. However, now the computer does not recognize anything that is plugged into the card. I can roll back to the windows default but was curious if anyone has any thoughts as to why only 2 ports would come up as high-speed.

Any help is appreciated.

A:Hi-Speed USB ports not registering as high speed

Some hardware have USB 2.0 and 1.1 backward compability un seperate USB ports. It can also come from the device you connect and also the USB card's speed compared to your PC.

Try rolling back to the Windows default settings. If nothing can be detected still, that can be a presence of hardware defect. Return and exchange.

My computer has recently been running at very high processor usage, running around 40% even when idle. Having dug around in task manager, this appears to be due to running a few svchost.exe processes, one of which in particular seems to be very high processor usage. This particular process is associated with the services 'power', 'plug and play' and 'dcom server process launcher'.

Have run a thread through the malware removal forum and has been certified clean, so wondering if there's likely anything I can do about the problem. Running on a laptop, so changing out hardware is not possible, so hopefully hardware is not the issue. Cheers for any input

You can't simply compare mhz anymore. You have to compare the architectures. Are they both the same processor type, or are they two different kinds?

If they are the same, let's say both mobile Core 2 Duos...chances are, you won't notice much of a difference, and the cost savings can be put towards more memory.

I'm not even sure where to post this query, or if its a valid question. There is a site called PC Pit Stop. They have a test you can run that tests out our entire system. Then it prints out your results and an average for your system. It then gives you a score. The site keeps a record of your test results.
I just ran the full test. My score was 1550. Up until Nov 1st, my Processor(CPU) speeds were always over 6000 MIPS. My test scores were around 1700. From the Nov 4th test till now, the speeds are between 4500 and 4700. I don't get any flags, because I guess the test thinks thats pretty good. They show the average to be around 5500, so I'm about 83% of that value. I cannot figure out why my speed has droped off. Any suggestions?? TIA

Most notebooks use "speed stepping" on the processor to lower the speed until its needed, to save the heat dissipation.

Its likely that a notebook with a 3 GHz processor is actually using a "desktop" processor, and without some such ability to keep it cool it would be too hot to handle, and you could almost cook on it.

In my opinion, the 2.4GHz CPU would be faster than the 3.4GHz, and especially in the case of an Intel Core 2 Duo vs. a Pentium 4 or Pentium D.

At first glance you have a hdd with a total capacity of 112 GB with 1.025 GB of free space.

You have less than ten percent of free space, you need more free space for swap space. This will most certainly slow your computer.

I would suggest defragmenting your hdd and do the disk cleanup.

I would also suggest either deleting files and programs which you don't need, or add an external hdd to transfer your data to.

Check your fsb setting. It probably defaults to 100. You need to set the fsb to 133 it will then read correctly. Check the manual; it will have instructions on how to set bus speed.
If this is a computer you purchased, why not take it back to where you bought it from and have them correct the problem. After all if you pay for something, you have a right to expect that it will work as advertised.

If I'm gonna pick I'll say that athlon 64 3300+ is faster for me than the pentium 820. Let me know if I'm wrong. The purpose of my system is mainly for gaming.

Thank You

A:Help on Processor Speed

I'll cut the geeky crap and get right down to the point.

The Pentium 820 is duel-cored and runs at 2.80GHz. The athlon 64 3300+ runs at 2.4 GHz. I have always been a strong supporter of AMD because it usualy outpreforms Intel in terms of gaming. But with the athlon 64 3300+ there is one set back. It only has 256kb of L2 Cache.

L2 Cache and cache in general (to dumb it down) manages how many applications you can have running at the same time without noticible slowdown (also referred to as bottle necking) More of the cache is better and causes better preformance when multitasking.

The Intel processor has 1MB L2 Chache, because its a duel core 2 x 1MB = 2Mb Cache. This proving that the intel processor would be better for mult-tasking (Teamspeak, Msn, a game and an anti virus all running at the same time) With no visible slowdown.

I would usually recommend AMD, but honestly, I believe Intel is the way to go in this case. But this is ONLY because you suggested that specific AMD vs that specific INTEL processor. There are some very nice AMD processors out there but I just wouldnt recommend the 3300+.

Oh and by the way, HT (or HyperTransport) is a technology that helps stop bottle necking, but it is definatley NOT the same as a duelcore. Duelcores are TWO processors working together and HT is just one core.

This is a Compaq Presario CQ60-215Dx laptop which was badly overheating. I repasted the Athlon processor but am still getting 90c CPU temp readings with CoreTemp.

I noticed there were two other chips having their heat dissipated by heat sink, one an Nvidia display chip and not sure about the other. But these were using a foam pad on heat sink and not paste. The pads were in good enough condition I left them although thought about using paste. I don't think they're responsible for high temps because these are dual core CPU readings.

Any suggestions of what to look at. The CPU fan is blowing very hot air.

A:Still getting high temps after repasting processor

Just to clarify Greg.

90C at load, or 90C at idle?

Hey All I have an AMD phenom x4 9550 processor @2.7(its HT Link is 3600 MHZ) and a motherboard GA-MA74GM-S2 (its HT Link is 2000 MHZ) so a friend of mine advised me to change the motherboard to a one with HT Link=3600 MHZ or more and he said that this will effect the performance greatly so is that right??or it won't have any effect in gaming??

P.S:I'm not sure that HT Link is measured by MHZ so if i'm wrong please correct me

Is this even possible? Ive never seen a download speed so low, I cant even watch youtube, and forget netflix. Yet my upload seems to be through the roof. What is causing this? .58mb/s DL with a 43.26mb/s upload @ 5 ms ping.

A:Extremely low download speed and extremely high upload speed

Might I ask what time of day you did that test? In My Opinion, the Internet is like the Interstate. You can't go fast at rush hour.
You should try it at different times of day to see if it changes.
You could even try another test site

My Windows does not show the right Processor speed. It shows 1.8 for my 2.4GHz Intel Pentium 4. May be my BIOS needs an upgrade but i cant find my motherboard model (PR22-S) in VIA website or any other site. Can anyone help??

A:Slow Processor Speed

Likely, you're bios has an incorrect cpu fsb setting. I'd guess you have a 2.4ghz cpu with a 18x multiplier and a 533fsb(133x4). So in the bios it'd be 133x18=2400mhz, but if it got set to 100mhz(400fsb), it'd be 18x100, which'd be 1800mhz. If your bios has an adjustable fsb, adjust it from 100mhz(400fsb) to 133mhz(533fsb). If most of that just blew over your head, just read the above sentence, go to you bios(press f1, f2, del, or whatever your bios's key is), and look for a fsb setting(you may have to enable fsb adjustment in an option box to be allowed to change the fsb if it's grayed out). It should be set to 133mhz, but it likely is set to 100mhz if it's reporting 1.8ghz.

Hi I have Laptop that was returned to me after a motherboard failure with Speed Processor Incorrect the ghz p processor running at ghz SiS Sandra and CPU-Z as well as the windows Info say the motherboard FSB is running at mhz or so a ghz is a multiplier with mhz I took the laptop back in person to their store and the tech guy there flashed the bios and swapped the processor he put old one back in after both of which did not fix the problem The tech guy said he needed to contact the supplier of the laptop who are Elite group they replaced the motherboard on this to who may know what to do The bios does not allow for any changes to the multiplier and FSB i was told that most modern motherboards automatically set these speeds When Booting the info screen that pops up says ghz p cpu so motherboard detects it correctly The bios version is NoteBios release motherboard model according to Sandra is a SIS DX which has a max FSB of x though it states that this FSB is running at x I am running Windows Xp professional Ver Service pack So as you can see Incorrect Processor Speed a most perplexing problem if anyone has any idea on what the issue might be i would love to hear them Thanks nbsp

Hello all, I'm hoping you can help me out.
My setup is:
AMD 1.1 proc
256 DDR Kingston Memory
Asus A7M Motherboard

My problem is that I did a reformat last week, and now my computer reads the processor as an 850 instead of 1.1
Anyone know of a way to correct this? Hopefully without reformatting again.
Any help would be appreciated.

A:Processor speed wrong

You need to change the multiplier/frequency settings in the BIOS for the processor.

Go up one step at a time, until you get to where you need to be.

If all of a sudden your computer wont boot, reset the CMOS.

Reformatting should have nothing to do with it, the only thing that changes is the hard drive. What's wrong is in your BIOS. However, I'm not too familiar with that low speed processor but I'm more than certain it is a BIOS problem.

back then i could tell the pc's apart by the processor speeds, now with the dual core machines how do i know which machines are the fastest and does it really matter, the pc will be not be used for gaming. i do not care for info on manufacturers, just the processing speeds..

A:Solved: processor speed

what exactally do you mean.?

if you have a 1.2GHZ amd its "speed" is 1.2GHZ yes.?

if you want a dual core pc then if for instance you have a 1.6Ghz dual core then effectively you have a 3.2GHz "speed"
as there are 2 cores in one chip each running at 1.6GHz if you get me,

A:processor running at 1/3 speed WTF

If you look a little closer you will see that the FSB speed is the same but your multiplier has dropped to x4 in Windows 7, which is most likely to to save power and prolong the life of your components, if you start doing something that is more intensive and requires more power you should see the multiplier rise to the default again.

Hi, sorry if this one gets asked a lot, but I couldn't find a thread that seemed to apply particularly to my dilemma.

I'm running on an eMachines built computer, the model is T2865. Aside from a GeForce video card, I've left the computer as is. The processor should be an AMD Athlon XP 2800+, not exactly sure. If I recall correctly, the processor is supposed to run at 2 ghz or more, yet when I go into Control Panel ---> System, the menu says it is running at 1.25 ghz. I already went through with several spyware removers and cleaned the computer, as well as ensured any necessary drivers are up to date, etc., yet the computer still says it runs at 1.25 ghz. Am I overlooking something?

A:AMD Processor running under speed?

Do you have AMDs Cool n Quiet software installed?

This program underclocks your CPU when it is not in use so that your temps stay low (and less fan noise is produced).

When you need your CPU again, it automatically boosts up to full speed.

That's what it sounds like to me.

i have a laptop with a processor of 1.73GHz but it is not capable of playing several games. i tried playing medival total war but it was running very slow. i then went to pc world and was told that it was not possible to upgrade the processor as it was embeded into the mother board. i was just wondering if it was possible and if so how do i do it. if not what solution could i do to play games that require higher processing speeds than my laptop can handle

A:is it possible to upgrade the processor speed?

Upgrading a laptop CPU is NOT easy to do; in fact, it is usually IMPOSSIBLE, and you are most likely to run into MANY problems you simply can't overcome. A faster CPU will generate a LOT more heat; overheating can force the processor to run slowly, or shut the system down completely. It is also possible that the motherboard won't be able to support a faster CPU. MOST laptops do NOT have individual video cards; instead, they use ONBOARD video chips, which are NOT designed for gaming. Even worse, they use SYSTEM RAM, which reduces the amount of RAM you have available for the OS and your other programs... ANOTHER problem is that the LCD screens on older / non-gaming laptops react too slowly to show fast motion; for example, the slow pixel response time will make a driving / racing game turn into a messy blur on the screen, which would make the game unplayable.

The bottom line is, you'll only be wasting time and money trying to run most of the newer games on your current laptop. You'll either have to be satisfied playing older games (such as the original Half-Life, and the variations of it), or start saving your money for a newer system, preferably one with a real GAMING videocard. Laptops are NOT the best choice for gaming, unless you only play Tetris, Solitaire, and FreeCell...

Wish I had better news than that; good luck to you...

does it really matter how fast ur comp is to get a HUGE HD? or is there no limit how big your HD(s) are with ur comp speed?

A:Harddrive + processor speed

it doesn't matter as to the speed, the wall you run into is with what the BIOS will recognise. Tell us the mainboard model of the machine and we can tell you its limit and whether you might need a BIOS flash in order to reach that limit.
