Internet bandwith maxed after streaming video.

Last response: in Windows 7

August 10, 2011 5:14:50 AM

Almost every time I stream video online my bandwith maxes out after just a few minutes and streaming comes to a crawl. I have not noticed any trends with different players/websites, they all generally seem to do it. When I open up Task Manager nothing is using any bandwith, yet pages load extremely slow. Additionally my AV tells me how much I'm using up/down and it is maxed. If I restart my PC it works fine.

I have a 3Mb/s connection.
Here is a pic of my AV telling me I'm basically maxing my connection, along with speedtest and Network Resource Monitor.

Any help would be amazing, this has been bugging me forever and I can't figure it out.

pay for a better connection,, 1 of my local ISPs (the one i use) has something called turbo boost, it'll bump you up to higher service level for first 3 MB then drop you down to your regular level,, it'll affect your connection for sure.
3mb/s is slow to stream, but if you have tried several sites including youtube and all have the issue, it is your speed.
i run a 25mb/s connection and never have a streaming issue unless i am d/l over 2000 kps which would mean your 500 kps is too slow.

A slow connection wouldn't explain why it is still maxed even after streaming.

Unfortunately I can't upgrade unless I switch ISP, but I have bundles with Verizon. Trying to hold out for fios.

install the network monitor gadget addgadget.com to assist on this issue, bring up your task manager and end each process till your network usage drops to identify the culprit.
maybe it is something trying to do updates that is triggered from the media streaming for some reason or another.

Went ahead and tried that but it didn't do anything for me. Closed everything and eventually got to critical processes like explorer and had to restart. No change in speed.

Are you sure you don't have a virus? What AV program are you using and have you tried scanning it with a different one?

try changing your DNS servers to opendns
i've had a slow (dropping) DNS before and it murders web browsing and streaming
you can find the DNS ips for opendns on their website

if its still an issue after that;
stream a video get to the 'slowness'
close out of any applications you have open, including AV

open cmd and do a netstat

see if you can find your culprit there

i'm not surprised pc crashed, would be expected as you will hit some critical programs, just start from the other end of list, if you do all of them, I'll be out of guesses as to what is wrong.

assuming you're using a router for your internet connection

go into the router setup and for the DNS entries use;

208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

apply; this will restart your router and it will be about a minute until your PC gets an IP address from your router.

yes, now you can check to see if the DNS took by opening command prompt and typing in;

ipconfig /all

you'll need to find the entry that says;

if your DNS serves show the opendns IPs it is set properly

yeah the DNS servers is all wrong, i dont see how you're using the internet at all

direct your browser to 192.168.1.1
log into your router

find the page where you setup your connection, in there should be a place for you to set your DNS servers

i'm guessing it shoud give you 192.168.1.1 as an address.

next lets set your network adaptor DNS settings to OPENDNS

right click network > properties > 'change adaptor settings' on the left

right click your wireless adaptor > properties > double click the TCP/IPv4

on the bottom click 'use the following DNS server address'

type in
208.67.222.222
208.67.220.220

open a command prompt

type ipconfig /flushdns

type ipconfig /all

look for DNS entry, it should now have the OPENDNS numbers

So I opened a few videos and it jumped up, closed them and it remained laggy for a bit and it showed that I was maxing my bandwidth. Figured it didn't help but then it dropped back down to normal. I guess I'll play around with it some more and see: here is the ping results:

Looks like it started slow and got better

~40ms isn't bad

remember to nslookup to confirm you're on OPENDNS's DNS

right now you're using the adaptor to force over to OPENDNS, if you could figure out how to set the DNS on your router it would be optimal. Unfortunitly i'm not familiar with those westells

My AV still has my bandwidth jumping up and down after I stream something but it doesn't seem to be effecting it as much. So far it looks like it has at least improved a good bit. I guess I'll keep an eye on it over the next few days and see how it goes.
