    Okay, So i will try to be as descriptive as possible. I currently have GoWifi to access my internet (my room mate has it to)But for the past 4 days my computer has been running horribly slow. I can't use a enthernet cable becuase "Gowifi" is only wireless. I use google chrome most of the time, but the internet is slow on chrome and explorer. I have tried the "ipconfig /release then ipconfig /renew" method. I have also tried to Reset WINSOCK, Reset IPv4, Reset IPv6, and then restarted my computer but still did not do the trick. I have tried various things from forums on other sites and this site but it still is not doing the trick. Is there Anything you guys could tell me that could fix my problem? And i do have a windows 7 computer.

    Hello & Welcome to Tech Guy Forum.

    Was the computer working properly before this issue began? If not, when did the computer last work properly/?

    What changed 4 to 5 days ago? A hardware or software install or removal? An update to W7 or a driver? An update to a program?

    Please run this forum's system info utility & paste the results into a reply of this here thread.

    Please provide your router brand, model & model #.

    Slow? Which browser are you using?
    If IE9, start > programs > accessories > system tools > IE9 no addons

    Are these torrent sites? ISPs have recently been slowing torrent traffic.

    Go to www.dslreports.com/speedtest & check your upload & download times. Please post it.

    A more detailed list would be very helpful so we don't waste your time suggesting something you have already tried.

    Have you tried to connect / surf at a different location?
