Preferred Solution: Issue on download speed

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: 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.

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.

I moved into a city that has 1gbps fiber and I got it. I set my computer up to run Ubuntu or Windows 7 in the Ubuntu OS I have full speed, like 980mbps but in Windows I can only get around 370mbps, they informed me that it was a know issue which is why they carry around laptops with Ubuntu instead of windows to troubleshoot there system. Anyone have any clue on this, I cant even imagine where to start looking for the setting or fix. Thanks

A:Limited fiber download speed in windows 7 full speed in linux

1gbps is fantastic. I suspect the Windows problem is a driver problem. Did you check the Windows 10TP. Maybe they fixed it. But then, the really big chunks you can always download with Ubuntu. I envy you, LOL.

I recently upgraded my internet service and found that speed test results from and were giving me download results that were ~ half of what I was supposed to be getting ( 9Mbs vs 16Mbs). I called the ISP and they suggested I restart in safe mode w/ networking and run the tests again. I did and the results of the test were surprising. I was getting the 16Mbs download speed that I signed up for. The tech suggested that I may be infected with something. I run several free programs (Mbam, avg, avast, ect.) to try to aviod these things, but it seems as though something may have gotten through. Any help that you guys may be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Btw, no error messages and I am running Windows XP. Thanks in advance.

Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months.

The desktop in question uses Vista 32-bit and the Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter.

Hi, welcome to this forum!

Please visit this site to measure the real speed of the connection. When done please post the results here.
Internet providers (who gives you the internet) usually make an offer of x speed internet but they only guarantee you to get much less. So the speed might change up and down sometimes. If the internet is still very slow please read the details of your agreement with the internet provider. But first give us the speed results from that site

Hi everyone,
At first I noticed a slow down with my ISP (Verizon FIOS) from 15mb/s to 6-7mb/s, but the upload speed is unaffected. So, I called my ISP they told me could be an issue with the Windows that I am using.
Then I called MS regarding the network issue, however they told me that my license has expired is not under warranty for technical support. Here I am asking for some help.

Some of the thing that the ISP done was conducting some test:
Buffer size:261360 bytes
Receive size: 66608 bytes
Their ISP network technician told me that the Receive size was too low and causing problem to the download speed, but the upload speed is still good.

So, anyone who have any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

For some reason programs and files are taking a very long time to download (about 30 kbps), but youtube plays fine, I can go to any website and troubleshooting shows nothing wrong. I went to and I'm averaging about 12 mbps so files should be downloading fast.

At this point I'm stumped. This PC has a fresh install of Windows 7, up-to-date. It is a Dell OptiPlex 780.

I should have also mentioned that the Network drivers are also up-to-date.

I've been told before that download speed is independent of how fast your Internet connection is. Is that true?

A:Download Speed v. Internet Connection Speed

Short answer = no. But on the other hand yes. Depends on how you mean the question.

Internet connection speed is defined by download speed and upload speed. - The Global Broadband Speed Test

It's probably an issue of semantics, i.e. what they meant when they said "download". Your "download speed" is dependent on how fast your ISP's download speed, but also how fast the downloading server us uploading the data, be it a file or a web page, or whatever. You can't get something faster than someone is sending it to you, however you can get it slower.

hi! i just wanna ask between the difference of the download speed and the internet speed. because i have a 1.5mb connection i tried at speedtest and when i download i always get a 190-200kbps rate. so its not actually 1.5mb in my download speed even my internet speed is 1.5mbps. is there and calculator what should be my connection if i want my download speed like 1mb per second? thank you very much.

A:difference between the download speed and internet speed?

Are you sure you're not getting 190-200KBps? You have to watch because the speed is often stated using different bit rates. When you see 1.5Mbs (lower case b) then it is megabits per second. If you see 190KBs (upper case B) then it's talking kilobytes per second. There are 8 bits in a byte so you really need to multiply the KBs number by 8 to determine the megabits or divide the Mbs number by 8 to determine the megabyte number.

In your case 200KBs multiplied by 8 is 1600Kbs or 1.6Mbs.

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.

 A couple of things come to mind.  Sometimes the site you're going to gets overloaded and become slow.  Every time you go to a site, your connection can be routed through different sites, and sometimes one of these sites can be slow and/or having problems.  I just had it happen with Dell forums which are normally fast, and sometimes I see it happen here as well.

Hello everyone! I am a new member of this forum.

I recently built myself a new pc. These are the specs:

It's quite weird what I'm experiencing but I'll try to explain.

I am using my normal Ethernet cable that I used on my old PC at the exact same location / circumstances, but when I plug the cable in my new PC, my download speed peaks at 81.5 kb/s and my upload speed peaks at 10 kb/s. Now when I put it back in my old pc I get 3mb/s download speed and 0.5 mb/s upload speed. I don't quite understand what the problem is. Do I need to update drivers/BIOS? I can't find any updates. This is a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit with barely any programs installed as of yet. I have reinstalled Windows 7 aswell, to no avail.
Thanks in advance,

Anything I can do to get my bandwith corrected? Even my ISP said that shouldn't be happening.


A:Download speed

Make sure you are not trying to compare bits to bytes.
Speed meters use bits per second, file downloads are shown as Bytes per second, with a Capital B
With a 2.5 mbps download speed, you would expect 180-200 KB/s downloads.
If you are getting 300-320 KB/s file download speeds that would indicate your speedtest should be showing 3.75-4.0 mb/s speed.

More info in post 8 here

Might want to try a different site, the closest one is not always the most accurate.

I recently got Uverse .
Originally I had 6gb down speed, and they kept raising it because of their billing errors.

They raised it to 18gb at same price ( $19.95 mo. on a promotion.)

Then I got an SSD, and they reneged on their price and wanted $50.00 mo. for the 18gb.

They rolled me back to 6gb, and my speed seems fine.

I backed up my C drive and it took 5 minutes, including verification.

They are now calling me to increase the speed, but I see no need.

Would increasing Uverse speed do anything more than what I have?



A:Download speed

No...not really. The only advantage to a speed increase would be if you do some serious movie downloading or streaming, or you did some extensive online gaming. I know plenty of people with around same dwonload speed as you and almost never have a problem.

The quality of your download speed will depend on primarily the quality of your ISP. But if you're truly getting 8-20 kb/sec. then something is def. not right.

If your line is 15Mbps, then getting 1MBps (8Mbps) is about normal. Your line is probably rated at 15Mbps max, not sustained. But if it's cutting off EXACTLY at 1MBps, that would sound like some kind of setting is wrong. Also make sure your switch or ethernet isn't 10Mbit (or set on 10Mbit), because that could max you out at around 1.3MBps

Why is this? its driving me insane. i have a 7.5mbit connection and when i first got this current computer i would download at 500 - 750kb/s, I've jumped up at down yelling at my ISP about this, but all theyre tests came back showing theres nothing wrong with my line. Or my connection.

Can anyone help? Im trying to download the Stranglehold demo. which is 2gb. and its been downloading for 8 days at 24b/s and its only done 1.4%!!!!

All help much appreciated.

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.

Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.

I'm trying to solve an issue with an HP i7 laptop running Windows 8. Broadband speed test is d/l approx 3Mb/s u/l approx 7Mb/s yet other laptops on the network are getting d/ls in excess of 30Mb/s.

I tried disabling the wireless card in device manager and installing a USB adapter but it gets similar speeds, also tried it on a different network but just same.

Hi there
I'm having serious problems with downloading files of the net. I just got a new internet connection with 8Mbps download speed but when I try to download something of the net the download speed drops to as low as 200Kbps and a file that took me about 3 min to download before is taking me over an hour now. I tested the internet connection and there is nothing wrong with it. My operating system is Microsoft Vista. Please help.

Have you tried downloading a large file at some other sites to see if the download speed improves?

The site you were at may have been experiencing heavy traffic or a problem.

When I conduct a speed test (tried multiple sites,) it shows my download speed as 0kbps, then gives an accurate upload speed. This used to only happen on my laptop (connected wirelessly) but now it's happening on my desktop too (wired.) Also, some images won't load right in the browser (using Firefox.) This also used to only happen on the laptop, but ever since I've been having the 0kbps problem on the desktop, it's happening there too. It seems to mostly affect images for buttons, menus, etc using CSS.

The router is a Buffalo Airstation WHR-G54S

I'm on broadband, rated 10Mbps down, 1024kbps up.

Hi I am just wondering why I get such slow download speeds when my internet is very good. I average around 300kb/sec but it fluctuates so much from under 100kb/sec- over 1mb/sec. Ive only seen it go as high as 1.4mb/sec correct me if im wrong but i do believe i should still get a higher download speed? below is a link to my speedtest .net....... 48mbits /sec download speed, 2.89 up speed, 18 ping 1589552537.png

A:My download speed problems

Could be your provider. With whom or what service are you connected?
Also, it could be right there on your system. As you know, the actual usable speed is limited by the slowest component... software, memory, motherboard, etc.
Can you try it at a friend or other known connection that you know to be fast, as a first step?

Before I was having problems with my upload speeds... Then those just randomly fixed themselves and I could use my internet fine...

But now my internet is having problems again. It was running slow, So I took a speed test:

594 KBPS Download
539 KBPS Upload

My upload speed is relatively where it should be, But my Download speed is extremely slow, as you can see. It is supposed to be like 4-5000... So I am running at about 1/10 the speed I should be at right now...

Any Suggestions?

Thanks for any help!

Hi All,

Trying everything I could from preventing windows 7 to freeze (and in the end it was upping the voltage on my i7 920 to 1.3 Volt that did the trick ) I now suddenly have my download speed dropping when uploading at the same time.

This never was the case before and my 1mbit upload and 8mbit download always worked together like a charm.

Only thing I did was disabling the IP Helper service once, but that services is up and running again from a couple of reboots ago..

Anyone have any ideas on what I should check to get my upload and download working at the same time again?

Thanks for your time!

A:Download speed goes down when uploading?

Try running your upload / download application in safe mode with networking and see if that solves the issue - if it does some driver or security application may be tampering with your connection.

You could also try to update your upload / download application - if you are using an application - if you are uploading to FTP or HTTP it may be AV / FW or Driver related.

Sorry if this is in the wrong section. I am having some problems with my download rate. I'm getting about a 35kb/s dl rate, which is atrocious. I am on a wireless connection, but previously I was downloading things no problem (game demos, etc.) I tried downloading the new BF2 patch (about 250kb i believe) and got something like 3 hours of dl time. I'm not sure what the problem is, because when i first got the computer (in August) it was downloading off the wireless connection perfectly. I have High speed DSL internet by the way. Thanks in advance.

A:Slow Download Speed

Try downloading TCP/IP Optimizer, it's free and can mutiply your download rates at more than 2 times what it used to in some cases. Just search it in google or yahoo. Also make sure your getting a good signal on your wireless connection, as this may help some speeds.

ive got a bellsouth fast access dsl connection but im getting dial up-like download speeds. i did this speed test somewhere online and it says that it is 95% slower than average dsl speed. something like 22 kbps. it takes so long to download anything. any help would be appreciated.

A:DSL download speed sucks

The following was obviously written for a router, but it works if you just have PC connected directly to your DSL modem. I don't know offhand how you set the MTU (if it needs to be changed) in the case of just PC and modem. Most times, I think, the MTU should be 1500 or 1492.

On your router there should be an option for mtu. use this formula.

To find the proper MTU Size, you'll have to do a special ping of the
destination you're trying to go to. A destination could be another
computer, or a URL.

1. Click on the Start button, then select the Run option.

2. In the "Open" field type in command (If you're using Windows
2K/NT/XP use CMD instead)

3. Once the window opens, you'll need to do a special ping. It
should be formatted:

ping [-f] [-l] [MTU value] [Enter] an e... MTU settings on the router. Or on the modem.

Can anyone who knows, tell me why most of the time a large item ( such as a video) will download at speeds of 30kb/s to 300kb/s with the speed going back and forth.....slowly creeping up to 300 and slowly moving down to 30.
I would LOVE to hear an explanation to this.
Thanks very much in advance for any info.

A:Question about download speed.

generally speaking, your download speed relies upon the speed and how busy the server is you downloading it from, and how much traffic there is between you and them.

At this house I'm currently in the download progress will fluctuate between 1.2 MB/s and much, much lower. At times it'll stall at O KB/s for a while then continue. Is this a wifi problem a Comcast problem something else?

I'm using a 2Wire Router.

It says my download speed is 2MBPS. However when I download things such as CDs or Movies. My speed usually tops out at 120kbps. Is there a cap or something in Windows 7? or am I just really lost.

A:Download Speed in Windows 7

Open msconfig/startup ... disable everything but your antivirus, reboot and recheck your speed... if your speed increases, then you know that your problem is with a startup program.. begin to add only the necessary programs one by one until/if you find the offending entry... Let us know how it goes...

That's just to watch, I'd hate to have to download one to burn. Does anyone out there have any suggestions on how to speed this up? Is there some kind of software that I can install to make things go faster?

I don't know what exactly is happened but this I have noticed has been happening for a few weeks now since December. It's happened at my old location. And it's happening at my new location. When I download from anywhere I get a good speed. Then it goes up and down. And in some cases my wireless connection gets lost and I have to reconnect. It's so frustrating.

A:how to decrease download speed

Hi. It depends on how he is downloading and what.

If he is downloading using torrents, then in the client will be settings to adjust upload and download speeds. If he is sending data as fast as your connections allows (uploading), that is most likely to inhibit speeds on other pcs. To download, upload packets are also used. If you can't send upload packets, you can't download.

If he is downloading from a web browser from normal websites, then you'd need something like Getright installed to take care of the downloads. It "grabs" the downloads instead of letting the browser download. In Getright, you can adjust total download speed.

If you need any more info, please let us know.

Hey everyone

Uhm.. I really think my internet provider is limiting my download speed D: ... I never.. Ever... Download faster than 160kb/s ... Sometimes, when the place is really close, It will start at about 1mb/s !! ... But than slowly.. It will go back to 160kb/s and just sit there, and keep downloading at 160kb/s ...

My internet provider is Telus, I am pretty sure I have a 1.5MB/S Connection, or more. So if anyone could help me It would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks everyone
