Now I have a 2mbps Internet connection(still living in the stone age I guess) and my buffering and browsing speeds are low, really low. I read couple of other articles and some said I need a faster pc other said to tweak my Firefox and said to change my DNS.
So here I am I did everything I could possible do with my browsers and used several DNS right now(public DNS, google, etc)

My specs
i7 980X @4GHz
24gB corsair vengeance 1866MHz
AMD HD 7970 @ x16

Hello Members,

To stop buffering:
1. Turn off hardware acceleration in flash videos.
2. Check your flash version and video card driver.
3. Reduce the quality of the video.
4. Isolate the video streaming.
5. Streaming video over wireless.

Thanks and Regards,
Stephen Jones

1. Alreadyturned off
2. Everything updated
3. It lags at 800kbps video
4. Please explain
5. Getting same results in both LAN and wifi

I use IDM and get full speeds while downloading. Just that my browser is slow.

What to do about speeding up browsing?
