first, it would be good to get some more information - is your internet connection always slow? is it only slow on some sites or programs, or is it slow no matter what you're doing?

the first thing i would do is head to speedtest.net and get a good idea of exactly how slow things are running:
http://www.speedtest.net/

then - are you connected through a router? if so, remove the router from the setup, plug your computer directly into your modem and try testing again. if you get the same results, then plug your router back in and start checking your cables to make sure you don't have a bad one somewhere. make sure your network card is running good drivers. finally, if you have more than one computer, make sure the network card isn't going bad by running a speed test on one of the other machines.

give us some results and we'll see where to go from there.

the way my comp is slow is when im trying to go to different sites, I tried and unplugging the router and all that good stuff and nothing changes. I also tried the speed test and it differs every time some times i get 7000 mbs or 15000 but it still goes slow my network card has the latest firmware update and it work perfectly.

Hmmm.......now try switching out the network cable with a spare network cable. Has the connection always been slow? Or did this situation just start happening recently?

are you using a Hub? Are you downloading? Do you have an active Antivirus or spyware program running that's hogging the bandwidth? Try booting into safe mode with networking and see if your Internet connection is still slow. If it isn't, the problem is software. If it's still slow, the problem is Hardware.

Hi,redwolf313k
Here's a simple little thing you can do to increase your bandwidth by at least 20%.
Ok here we go...
1.) log on as Administrator.
2.) start - run - type gpedit.msc
3.) expand "local computer policy"
4.) then expand "administrative templates"
5.) then expand "network branch"
6.) Highlight the "QoS Packet Scheduler"
7.) on right window double click "limit reservable bandwidth"
8.) on setting tab check the "enabled"
9.) change "Bandwidth limit %" to 0
You're done.It would be a good idea to reboot after this.
After, completing this steps, you can check our internet speed whether increase or not using this site ScanMySpeed.com

What state do you live in and what internet provider you have? I live in Oklahoma and have Suddenlink cable.
I have this problem where it has been good for a couple of weeks when I got internet from them and then slowdown and sometimes disconnected about every day.
It could be a bad server in your area.
