FiOS Triple play with Windows XP slow?

Message 1 of 2

I seem to have a problem with FiOS Internet on my machine, which is running Windows XP. Slow response from browsers and FREQUENT lock-ups (both IE and Firefox). It's extremely frustrating! I had Verizon DSL before and never had such problems. The installer assured me XP was OK.


I don't have a lot of other programs runiing in the background and meticulous on keeping up with my antivirus and antimalware. All I can think of is my operating system might not be up to snuff. Anyone else out there have issues with FiOS and XP?

It's hard to guess what your problem might be without more information, but I'm running a desktop PC and a Dell laptop, both with XP Pro SP3.  I have no problem using IE8 or Firefox on either machine.


Did the FiOS installer install any software on your PC?  If so, I suggest you uninstall it.  It's not necessary.


Where are you located?  What kind of pings do you get to a server like


Does the problem you're describing happen when accessing particular websites, or all of them?


What speeds do you see at the FiOS speed test:


and what speeds and pings do you get at


For starters.  🙂
