    Default internet connection problem...

    need your help... for some reason all of my (internet based programs) are locking up before they actually are able to connect to the net. A good example is internet explorer is giving me a "looking up" message down at the bottom for a good 20-30 seconds before it actually connects. I am on a LAN which is running fine... the other computers (including my iPhone) connect at a normal speed. any ideas what this could be?

    Well your first mistake is using IE :P

    Try Firefox, its faster and safer.

    As for your internet problems, do you have a router? Try releasing/renewing your IP address?


    Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and test your download speeds and upload speeds on your comp and compare it to the others.

    Here's an example of what your speeds should look like.

    If your ping is high and your download speeds are low you have a connection problem.

    You might want to check your connection speed settings on your network card as well. Most common setting should be "autodetect", but something may have tweaked it. If it is set to halfduplex/10mbps, everything that requires net traffic will be slow.

    Well, I tried tweaking the connection settings, installing a new network card and shutting down the firewall and nada. The problem started when I plugged my access-point directly into my computer (to secure the wifi)since then little to no. Internet speed

    Is this computer using different DNS servers? Sounds like it's having a problem looking up names.

    Did this in effect give you 2 NICs on the PC? With 2 different IP addresses - and possibly 2 different gateways?

    Have you checked your hosts file? Might be worth a look..Also, can you use the network at all at correct speed besides using the internet, as in file copy from one system to another?
