    My Internet browses pretty quick, I have no complaints. But when I use the computer to view charts in real time it lags sometimes. Now i know its not my internet because on this one god of a laptop (5 years old) the charts never lag. My internet is 5mbps cable, and i use a usb 2.4ghz wifi receiver on the desktop i prefer to view my charts on . the desktop is very fast and fresh, i recently rebooted, and everything runs quick. How else can i increase the performance of my browser, perhaps allocate more focus on the browser without causing instability.I want it to drain my modem, and provide the fastest data it can, because it is vital those charts are functioning at their best.

    Plugging it into the modem will most likely improve connection performance . Where are the charts located ? Local network or http site or ftp ? The server's connection and load will have a major bearing too .

    the chart uses java and opens up a new window, which doesnt include an address bar or anything, i think its called a java applet. it loads an applet that comes up with trust and dont trust options, and the top header of the window says https://bllahblah.com.

    I dont think its their server, but how can i find out how fast their server is operating?

    my pc doesnt have an ethernet jack for me to direct connect it, i had to emove it because it was causing conflicts .. long story, so i use a usb adapter. is there an alternative or another way to get an ethernet jack without conflicts. or even a usb---ethernet reciever, so i can plug into ethernet which plugs into the computer.

    An ethernet connection would improve your speed, and any conflicts should be easy enough to resolve (Next time, just disable this hardware in Device Manager rather than remove it).

    Thanks for your responses. Is there anything I can do on the PC to improve the performance of java applets? maybe allocate more resources to them?
