Unhappy Solved: Slow loading web pages when browsing
Hi, I'm hoping someone on here can help me with this frustrating problem of web pages take to long to load. I thought I'd start with all my system info first then diagnose further...

Here is my PC system info -

S Version: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
Processor: Intel Pentium II processor, x86 Family 6 Model 37 Stepping 2
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 3253 Mb
Graphics Card: Intel(R) HD Graphics, 1024 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 305234 MB, Free - 233281 MB;
Motherboard: Intel Corporation, DH55TC, AAE70932-302, BTTC044000DV
Antivirus: PC Tools AntiVirus Free, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: Enabled


Here is a log from Hijack this - perhaps there is something in here that might need looking at.....

Click Start > Run > type ncpa.cpl

Right-click your connection.

Click Properties.

Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties.

Check Obtain DNS server address automatically.


Click Start > Run > type services.msc

Make sure the DHCP Client is Started and Automatic.


If no luck,

Try using Google Public DNS.

Or, OpenDNS

Hi thingamajig, Looks like something is very wrong going from my speed.. here are the results

Ping 61ms Download Speed 0.07Mbps Upload Speed 0.06Mbps



I'm not sure if it's do with what phantom010 was talking about with the DNS as that and default gateway and IP address are set to run Azurez program - would this make the connection slower because its not automatically getting an IP address? Oh and the DHCP is started and on automatic.

This is soooo frustrating

Who is your internet provider? and what speed are you paying for?
If using a router, try connecting directly to modem with a cord, just to eliminate the router.
If you have wireless, is it secured? and do you have other computers in the home using the connection wired or wireless?

You could do as well with simple dial-up. Note that a dial-up model is 0.056M maximum bandwidth. For comparison, I just ran a test with numbers of 31.34M Down and 3.17M up.

If you are paying for broadband, you should be getting broadband. Contact your service provider and complain. Go to them with numbers from the link above as well as CNET's version (http://reviews.cnet.com/internet-speed-test/) and they may have their own version.

Why did you configure those DNS server settings: 10.0.0.138 ?

Click Start > Run > type ncpa.cpl

Right-click your connection.

Click Properties.

Select Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Properties.

Check Obtain DNS server address automatically.


If no luck,

10.0.0.138 is likely the address of the modem or router. A few manufacturers use this as a default. The router/modem will forward name requests to the ISP's servers. It's not so uncommon for a router's DHCP to only give itself out as a name server. As long as your name resolution is working, I don't see any fundamental problem here. We could check this with the make and model of your equipment.

Bigpond is my ISP and meant to be paying for DSL2 - more like DRS (Dam right slow!) Using a 2Wire modem. This didn't happen before so I'll contact them I think - I did a speed test before and was good! Thanks for your comments and feedback too!

That is the address for Bigpond and was given to me so that the port for Vuze would work as I needed that to be the same for DNS. I changed back the settings to automatic and made no difference when I ran another speed test - I think there is a fault with ISP somewhere - Thanks for your comments, appreciate them.

True I SHOULD be getting Broadband but instead more like no band. Thanks for your advice I will contact them and see if there is a fault in the line or something. Paying for something you don't get is annoying. Thanks again.

Sometimes the obvious is the answer

Thanks for all your help I feel such as idiot now as I've just been told the reason for my PC going slow is I've maxed out my usage! So will be all ok tomorrow and back to normal.

Till next time or will share what knowledge I have and to gain more experience I shall be back....
