Q: Finally fixed my network speed issue.

Using all available win previews and now the official public release I have had mbps speeds on my LAN til yesterday when I Finally network fixed my issue. speed set jumbo frames to ON and k size I didn't try any other I just used the largest BAM My full normal gigabit speeds are back once again I find myself dumb founded as to what Microsoft has done to a working network architecture to break it so badly that shares speed and availability are Finally fixed my network speed issue. now nearly broke NEVER have I ever had to use jumbo frames on any PC or OS in fact doing so previously has made zero difference in throughput i love windows for what they did but it's actually worse than windows on many levels I won't go back to Win yet if at all I am just baffled why they did what they did for the home and pro versions Sure make enterprise have a newish type of network architecture because businesses are going to do a complete review due up all of their PCs way home user is going to do one they're going to use Windows be immediately turned off because the networking doesn't work very well if it all

Preferred Solution: Finally fixed my network 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.)

A: Finally fixed my network speed issue.

Still strange, though, as my adapter has Jumbo Frames disabled and it runs 1Gig no sweat.

A few weeks ago I experienced the infamous Black Screen of Death KSOD on my computer running bit Vista Business You know the one where the computer stalls out during boot up at a black screen with a white cursor and it won't respond to anything I finallly fixed it today After much research I'm starting to think this is boils down to ACL problems that prevent key Windows services from starting For example my KSOD occurred after chkdsk went haywire and quot replaced invalid security id with default security quot on every file on Death of Screen my fixed Finally Black the hard drive That made Finally fixed my Black Screen of Death me suspect the services could not start because of bad ACLs on their Finally fixed my Black Screen of Death associated files Some KSODs may be caused by bad permissions in the registry as described in some posts but the result is the same My fix was to reinstall Vista which puts the previous system folders in the Windows old folder Reinstalling Vista warn you that you cannot use the previous version of Vista Fortunately that is not always true Sometimes you can go home again Under the new installation I was initially denied access to the other folders on the C drive and had reset the ACL and or ownership on each folder by opening it with administrator permission Now here is the trick to get the old system back again I booted the computer with a BartPE cd based on Windows XP that I had created in a previous life I then used the file manager to access the hard drive whereupon I created a windows new folder I proceeded to move not copy all of the new system folders into windows new I guess I could have just deleted the folders I then moved all of the old system folders from windows old to the root directory I rebooted and had my old system back again without having to reinstall the application software I think this worked because reinstalling Vista essentially fixed the ACL corruption introduced by Chkdsk I think it reset the ACL on the system folders to the standard administrator group ACL and allowed me to reset the rest of the folders manually Addendum -I needed to give myself full control over my own profile for IE to work cleanly and I needed to take ownership and give the Users group modify permission to data folders hanging off of the root directory before some apps would work correctly Other items of note You don't have to reinstall with the same copy of Vista used in the original installation You might not even have to use the same version of Vista I was sweating a little bit because my original Vista cd is damaged A borrowed copy worked just fine for me After reinstalling Vista simply connecting the hard drive to another Vista or Windows machine in order to move the folders did not work It appears they quot respect quot the ACLs on the hard drive and deny access Addendum I heard one can manipulate the Vista installation on the connected hard drive by turning off UAC However using a BartPE cd to move folders worked and connecting the drive to a Windows XP machine would probably work as well Windows can experience the same problem

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.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

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.

Hi All,

This is my first VS2008 installation and I bumped to this error. Wasting much time googling the net showed bunch of lame solutions like "reboot pc, reinstall windows and etc..." I thought it is W7's incompatibility, however the problem is easily solved by adding additional component during install/reinstall... just check "Visual C++ Tools" (no need to select "Lookup", "Spy++" and "Win32 Tools", you can deselect them, if not needed)

So, this is to inform that VS2008 in the following selection is working fine (SP1 was applied separately):
Visual Studio 2008
VC# (+mobile)
VC++ (+mobile +visual cpp tools)
Visual Web Authoring

Everything is compiling now =)

1. I did this from work.
2. I ran two tests on two different servers. (NY and Chicago)
3. I combined the download speed pic from the NY server with the upload speed pic from the Chicago server.
4. I did NOT edit any of the numbers themselves, so the speeds shown are actual results....

I need a help to resolve one issue with my Belkin router F7D4402 v1. I have got it recently and configured it without any issue and my internet (ADSL) was up and running. However, later I have noticed that, my internet speed is limited to 1.5 Mbps. whereas; the speed I was getting on my old Linksys WAG200 router was minimum 2.0 Mbps.

I have tried to disable the QoS and other options but no use. But when I enabled the Mac cloning it worked fine. I was getting the speed I subscribed for, but unfortunately, the other devices on my Wi-Fi stopped working. With Mac clone enable, the internet is only available to my PC.

I need the internet on my PC plus all the Wi-Fi devices in my house and along with it my full internet speed, not just 1.5 Mbps.

Can anyone please help to fix the issue?

Thank a lot.

Comcast upgrades speeds for Xfinity Internet Performance users for free - SlashGear
Better late than never (I guess):

How to upgrade your speed (if applicable):

Complete these easy steps to ensure you're receiving your faster speed:

1 Shut down your computer
2 Unplug your modem from the electrical outlet
3 Plug your modem back in
4 Unplug your router from the electrical outlet
5 Plug your router back in
6 Wait 30 seconds and turn your computer back on
To ensure your modem is a DOCSIS 3.0 modem and can take advantage of this speed increase, please click here:

Just curious to know if I'm one of the last ones to get this free upgrade.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

I had set my computer to go to sleep after 2 hours.

I got tired of it sleeping & changed the sleep setting to "Never".

It still went to sleep after 2 hours.

So I checked in advanced settings & found that "hybrid sleep" was turned on.
I shut it off & my computer quit going to sleep.

Just thought I would post my solution to my issue in case anybody else was having the same problem.


A:8.1 sleep issue fixed

Once you go into a Command Window and do 'powercfg /hibernate off'. It will stop the behavior.

Hello! I 'm interested in purchasing a Lenovo yoga 900. Searching for many days my options was Spectre x360, surface pro 4, or yoga 900. I really had bad experience from hp fan laptops...really noisy and was hot enough to fry eggs. Also sp4 is quite expensive and read that have issues with fan. My previous laptop was a Lenovo g580. I loved it, because it was really silent.  Even in a silent room nothing heard. So decided that Lenovo yoga 900 was the best option for me but I wonder if noisy fan fixed with the bios update? Could somebody confirm? And something else is screen protector included in box?

So recently I had a very frustrating issue with my pc being at percent memory usage all of the time I did post in the am I infected forum and recieved a number of steps to take but with the pc as slow as it was I decided to try and fix it myself I have seemingly fixed it but not the right way and I am lost as to how to move forward I used process explorer to find that System was using percent cpu Not system idle process and then right clicked and went to properties to find two threads were split in memory usage One was the windows kernel file and the other was something called rimspe sys some jargon That is to my understanding a normal windows driver found in system drivers By clicking on the properties of that thread It seemed to be associated with a device that came up in my device manager quot Ricoh memory stick disk device quot I have no idea what that is but I attempted to disable and uninstall I fixed an the wrong way issue, it Upon restart it was still there under disk drives in device manager Also during this whole time my pc was randomly making the usb device disconnet reconnect sounds So in safe mode I just moved rimspe sys from the drivers folder to my desktop Also I turned off usb and usb sleep in charge in my boot menu There was no immediate effect but I restarted am now in normal mode and the pc I fixed an issue, the wrong way is functioning properly I am assuming this cannot be a permnanent fix as other things need to use that driver and was wondering how to move forward The Ricoh memory stick disk device no longer shows up under disk drives in device manager I am afraid to move the sys file back and was just wondering if anyone knew how i should proceed or what tools I should run actions I should take Thanks for any help and I was unsure where to post this I hope this was the correct forum

A:I fixed an issue, the wrong way

depends on what models your looking at. If they are both 10/100 then you should get the same wired performance from both animals.

We have a network with a number of PC's Until recently all PC's No IP - Fixed network were WinXP and all set for fixed IP All PC's accessable over the Fixed IP - No network network and Internet connections working Now we have installed Win on one of the PC's and only when this PC is set for dynamic IP everything works as before As soon as the Win PC is set for a fixed IP this PC becomes inaccessable on the network however the Internet connection works The router is D-Link DIR- Fixed IP's all outside routers DHCP range and firewall off Sharing is on and if there was anything wrong with these settings the PC's wouldn't be accessable with a dynamic IP Sometimes when I change from dynamic to fixed IP I have connection but as soon as I reboot I am back to square one Have checked this forum for solutions and it seems I am not the only with this problem but fail to find a solution Greatful for suggestions

A:Fixed IP - No network

Had the same problem last year and got some help at this forum and thought I solved the problem. I could get it to work by switching from dynamic to static IP inside Win7, however after reboot and set to fixed IP no network,

Sorry can't help you as I am still looking for a permanent solution.

There must somebody at this forum that understand what is going on. Just be patient!

A:Serious mouse issue, wasn't fixed after reinstalling OS

If you did a clean install of Windows, which requires the hard drive to be formatted its unlikely its a virus, as you'd have most likely removed it.

Have you tried going to control panel (Start button > Control panel > Mouse) and confirming that the most is setup correctly?

A:Orphan threads - please POST when your issue is fixed

I fully agree with your points. It is my observation on many forums that 50% of the first time posters never come back and of those that do, many never let you know how they made out.

Maybe the first time posters do not find their way back to the forum. That has happened to me on forums where I went for the first time and where the forums had an engine that I had never seen before. Even seasoned posters on other forums may have trouble orienting themselves on our forum. I have such a case right now.

For answering first time posters, it is the best to make a first response very short. I usually ask an additional question. Then you see what happens and at least you have not invested a lot of effort.

Is Norton installed on the is machine, or was it a previous install?


One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan/rootkit.

This type of infection allows hackers to remotely control your computer, log keystrokes, steal critical system information, and download and execute files without your knowledge.

If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.

Please refer to Microsoft's Online Safety article for tips on creating a strong password.

Do not change passwords or do any transactions from the infected computer until it has been cleaned.


Please note that these fixes are not instantaneous. Most infections require more than one round to properly eradicate.

Please stay with me until given the 'all clear' even if symptoms seemingly abate.

Kindly follow my instructions and please do no fixing on your own or running of scanners unless requested by a helper.


If there are any personal files, pics, etc. on your computer you cannot live without, back them up now just as a precaution.

After spending 2 days off and on fooling with EasyBCD 1.72 and trying to get Windows XP to load, I finally loaded the EASYBCD Beta 2.0 and it worked immediately....

Get EasyBCD Beta 2.0 ...Yes, you must subscribe to forum, but it was worth it.....

Good Luck

EasyBCD = awesome program!!!

A:FIXED! Dual Boot issue WinXP and Win 7

Win7 should configure any multi- boot properly if it is installed last and all other drives than the OS's are unplugged.

The fly in the ointment is when a data drive is marked active and confuses the Win7 installer, so keep them unplugged during install and you won't have to use old technology like EasyBCD to do what is automated in Win7 installer, and Win7 startup repair from boot.

If you've checked the HP site for the latest drivers for your laptop model, you may have noticed that AMD drivers have been added. Finally, the laptop > HDMI > TV connection issues I have been having are 100% fixed.  What I did was - I uninstalled the previous drivers using DDU in safe mode. Then I downloaded and installed the drivers on the HP site. Check the page for your laptop model for the appropriate drivers to install. The TV is recognized now and am able to extend my desktop. Apparently only the newer models have W10 drivers released by HP as of right now. Also, make sure to turn 10-bit pixel format support off in Catalyst Control Center.

Hi there
if you UPGRADE to W8.1 rather than clean install then the VMware adapter settings (ON THE HOST) get hosed up. Your VM's won't be able to connect to your network ( and / or the Internet too).

Either re-install the adapters manually - via the VMware program "Repair program" or uninstall VMware and install the latest version - in my case VMware workstation 10.0.1

I made another post about this in the Forum elsewhere.


A:VM's (vmware can't connect to network with W8.1 - fixed

Mine was hosed too, along with other things. I also did the 8.1 upgrade (if you can call it that) not a clean install.

I have been experiencing the same issues as many with NAS's and Computers not visible on the network view Mine is issues, Fixed visibility why exactly not but do network know I fixed but I am not sure why Due to a notification to update my ASUS router firmware I had difficulty finding the new firmware and started reloading old versions in attempt to find one that would auto-update the Fixed network visibility issues, but I do not know exactly why new firmware No luck on that route so I reloaded a slightly older version which prevented web access to find the router setup page No problem as I reinstalled a copy of the ASUS router discovery software Success with this and performed router firmware upgrade which at one point involved resetting the router back to it's default settings I then adjusted the router settings to my liking and left the router UPNP setting quot on quot This allows me to see the router device on the Network view Opened up Network and was surprised to see all of my devices computers and NAS's Rebooted a few times to make sure this was not a one time fluke All is well Speculation of the fix - Router UPNP on - Router firmware or reset to defaults - Running the ASUS router discovery software Your guess is as good as mine

A:Fixed network visibility issues, but I do not know exactly why

What you are talking about is not a widespread issue as you think that it is. It is caused by the last rollout, when Microsoft decided to lock down SMB/CIFS, by making SMB 1 & 2 not working as it did in the past.

Has nothing to do with your router.

Some network devices have fixed the problem on their own. If you are running third party Security software, an update could have solved it.

This is with Windows 7. For a while, I was not able to launch Internet Explorer much like this person: I also had an issue with Windows Live Mail where annoying pop-up messages saying the program stopped working would happen while composing emails (often many endlessly on top of each other). I tried the fix in post #14 of that thread and it got IE to launch and the annoying pop-ups to stop, however now I can't do much in IE without it crashing. Sometimes I will get a similar pop-up message as the email had and other times it will just lock up and lock up Windows with it (and I have to use CTRL+ALT+DEL to log off in order to regain control). I cannot access bookmarks or history (no crash with that, but nothing happens) and cannot use buttons like Home or Print (which cause crashes). Any ideas?

See here - (scroll down and read under Freeware Antispyware Products)Further, most people don't understand Spybot's TeaTimer or how to use it and that feature can cause more problems than it's worth. TeaTimer monitors changes to certain critical keys in Windows registry but does not indicate if the change is normal or a modification made by a malware infection. The user must have an understanding of the registry and how TeaTimer works in order to make informed decisions to allow or deny the detected changes. Additionally, TeaTimer may conflict with other security tools which do a much better job of protecting your computer and even prevent disinfection of malware by those tools.More effective alternatives are Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and SUPERAntiSpyware Free.2.Viewpoint Manager is considered as foistware instead of malware since it is installed without users approval but doesn't spy or do anything "bad".

hardware concerning: ethernet, specifically nforce4 network controller (drivers

situation: Assigning pc to static ip of router (wrt54g) ie; default gateway, and primary dns as

problem: upon bootup the network can not find the proper route and has to diagnose/troubleshoot to fix the problem, which was a nag every time and gadgets like weather and such would not be updated until this was resolved. If leaving network to dhcp the problem would not occur or nag. Yes dhcp set on router.

solution: simple really, going to nvidia's site and installing the latest nforce4 platform drivers fixed the problem (which i think is just a reinstall of the drivers as i think they are the same that are packaged with win7 7000. Have not checked this yet to confirm

I warmly welcome

I have a problem with configuring network cards

WIFI comes nicely with DHCP pool 192.168.0 .*

I have a virtual network adapter "Microsoft Loopback Adapter"
in it I have to have a static IP address
and set it manually (IPv4)

the problem is that the WiFi card is still changing my IP address of the virtual card

how to prevent it?

I wanted to wifi card automatically collects the IP address
but did not interfere in the virtual adapter's IP

A:Wifi DHCP - the second network card on a fixed IP

I quote (from ):

Microsoft Loopback Adapter is a dummy network card, no hardware is involved. It is used as a testing tool for a virtual network environment where network access is not available. Also, you must use the Loopback adapter if there are conflicts with a network adapter or with a network adapter driver. You can bind network clients, protocols, and other network configuration items to the Loopback adapter, and you can install the network adapter driver or network adapter later while retaining the network configuration information.

Given that, there is no way your wi-fi card can "change" the IP address of your fake network adapter. If you set a static IP for ANY adapter, it WILL stay that way, regardless if one adapter is set to release and renew based on DHCP and one is not.

I even tried it myself. I installed the loopback adapter, set an IP and all that for it, released ALL DHCP'd IPs and renewed them. the static IP for the loopback adapter didn't change.

Take a look at your settings again, make sure you didn't miss something.

A:*** How I Fixed My Missing Network & Homegroup Computers ***

Hey thanks for your solution to this problem. I have about a dozen computers on my home network, and when I upgraded the devices running Windows 10 to the November 2015 1511 Version, a couple of the Windows devices 'disappeared' from the network map - at least on the Windows 10 devices as I still have a couple of devices running Windows 7 and the 'missing' computers were shown on the Windows 7 network maps. I spent several hours on the phone with Windows Support but in the end they were totally mystified. I searched and searched the web for a few days looking for someone with the same problem and perhaps a solution. I did find one other guy on with the same problem but he didn't have a solution either. When I found your thread on this forum I tried it and it fixed the problem completely. Accordingly I've posted your thread on the web site as well. How did you figure this out?

Thanks again!

A:Assigning fixed IP addresses to devices in home network

Golden, Most routers have the capability of reserving IP's for the devices on the network.

You can also go into networks and your adapter can be set to a static IP which should be fine.

But, I find that the router is the easiest way to reserve IP's.

This sounds really noobie of me but is it possible to improve local network transfer speed by adding a 2nd network card. I was planning to connect one exclusively for lan transfers and another one hooked to a separate wireless router.

Right now only a maximum of 3 users can stream SD videos off the PC before it gets a little choppy.

The pc in question runs on windows 7 and it's board has built in gigabit, I happen to have a spare gigabit card.

A:Will adding a 2nd network card improve local network transfer speed

That won't really help the way you are describing the problem, although adding access points will help with streaming to wireless devices.

Although there is a setting in Group Policy that allows you to use two connections at the same time, I don't believe it will help in this situation.

I've done many HD movie streaming tests on my system.

I can stream from my media PC to at least 7 other machines at the same time, 4 wired, 3 wireless, plus my TV, and have no problems at all, no skipping, no freezing, even with the same movie in the same place or with 8 different movies at once, my TV is connected to my media center PC so counts as the 8th one.

This is Gb LAN, and 300Mbps wireless but even the 65Mbps limited laptop has no problem.

I'm not really sure why you are seeing these limitations but it may be the router.

Hi there

This USB Wifi adapter seems to be a MEGA performer --Lovely finally to be able to THINK of getting rid of LAN cables all over the place.

I've no probs with decent HD Movie streaming from a SERVER with one of these (I unplugged the LAN and inserted the USB Wifi adapter into a USB3 slot --note this needs genuine USB3 to work at proper speed). My Home router can deliver 802.11ac so no probs there.

Brilliant piece of kit and NO MORE CABLES !!!!!!. Wifi will soon be able to deliver comparable speeds to LAN especially for HOME networks. !!!

Here's the UK Link but is available in US and Europe. In any case it's delivered (in my case) by Amazon S.A.R.L (Luxembourg) so no tax !!!. even though I ordered from UK web site --they will ship outside UK tax free.

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.

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 having a strange issue. My wired download speed is .80/mbps while my upload is 8.5/mbps. The connection is FIOS 35/35 and I am having zero issues with any other cpu on the network wired or wireless.

This is a new machine with a fresh install on it. The only 'third party' app is Chrome.

Network setup is follows:
Verizon FIOS ont box > Cisco E1000 Router > Linksys 24port 10/100 switch

This box is plugged into the switch at the end of the chain. I have swapped cables and have tested different machines. Everything else is working fine but not this machine.

Any tips?

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?

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 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.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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?

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). But then after that it goes back to it's slow speed until I restart it again.

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.

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!

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?

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

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.
