My Internet is very slow!

Re: My Internet is very slow!

those results indicate a 768/128 connection speed.   do you know what speed you signed up for?  what are you supposed to be getting?

 

also a couple other questions. 

 

are you wireless or hardwired

have you ran the verizon speed optimizer.

and what are your results at the http://speedtest.verizon.net website

What browser are you using (firefox, chrome, internet explorer?)

Re: My Internet is very slow!

that is pretty close to your subscribed speed.   so you may want to open task manager and see what your CPU useage is.  

 

 

here are a few programs to help clean your PC

 

www.ccleaner.com

http://www.malwarebytes.org/

http://www.superantispyware.com/

 

your internet is moving quick but your PC is not.   do you have multiple pc's and are all of them feeling slow?   

 

don't forget to clear your cache and cookies

Oh okay. Yes I have an older desktop that is very sluggish.. But, I have a brand new Laptop so it shouldn't be moving slow.

Re: My Internet is very slow!

You are right the newer pc, as long as it is hardwired and free of any spyware malware and not unusually high cpu usage, should perform better. Is it running high usage?
