    Hey guys

    Having some issues with one of the pcs on my home network my desktop Internet connection has been bad the past couple weeks. I have an iPad and a laptop on the same network and they have no issues.

    What I have done so far to try and resolve

    Release and renew IP address
    Delete wireless profile and reconnect
    Power off modem and router

    The computer I am having issues with is on a wireless connection. It's a newer dell xps desktop its in the same room and the modem and router and has only been an issue the past couple weeks. It's taking minutes to load websites and the other computers on my network are running great.

    If I disconnect it from the network and reconnect it takes a long time to connect as we'll.

    Any help is greatly appriciated.

    How does it work with an ethernet connection?

    What firewall or security suite is, or ever was, on the system?

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista and 7 and 8.

    Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt. [For Windows 8: <Windows Logo> + x - Command Prompt(Admin)]

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

    Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    You know what I haven't tried it with the ethernet connection. I will try that when I get home from work, along with the other suggestions you have made.

    Thanks very much. I'll report back later today with the results.
