    I have a network of 4 computers connected to the same DSL, and yet, one computer has extremely slow internet speed. The connection speed reads 100 Mbps, like the others do, but it doesn't perform at that speed. So I need help to make this computer fast like the rest. Any ideas people?:confused:

    Did the computer with slow internet have average speed at any point in time, before it slowed down?

    Is the internet slow, or is it just getting the webpages up that is slow.
    I have the same problem, but it only takes long to load up a webpage, once it starts loading, it seems fine to me.

    have you moved any microwaves, or wireless phones or anything else that may interfere, between the modem and the computer?

    It's only when loading webpages. Its extremely slow. Nothing has been moved, and it's connected in the network just as it always has.

    Let's see this from the slow one, and one of the normal ones.


    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

    In the command prompt window that opens, type type the following command:

    Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

    IPCONFIG /ALL

    Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter to copy the contents to the clipboard.
    Paste the results in a message here.

    If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
