Slow Internet Browsing

Hello,
I am having problems with my network at home - namely extremely slow
browsing of the internet. When downloading from p2p or directly from
the net I can get very good speeds (100kbps+) however when browsing
the net the speeds are unusable (around 500bps!).


I have tried everything I can think of (using latest antivirus
software, removed all spyware, deleted all cookies, temp. int. files,
reduced amount of space used for temp. int. files etc) but I still
cannot get this to work. Is there anything I am missing?


We have


4 PCs all running XPpro
Origo ADSL Modem Router
Opera/Internet Explorer Browsers
1mb DSL line


this is happening on all 4 PCs. Sometimes you can speed up the net by
resetting the router but this only speeds things up for a few minutes
and then it settles back down to the unusable speeds. I first though
it was a problem with the line or maybe the router - but if I can get
100kbps over P2P or directly from the net, this indicates to me that
there's a Browser setting somewhere I'm missing?
Please can somebody help!


Thanks, Leo.

Leo,
The first thing I do when T/s a client's computer- is determine if it is a
connection speed issue. Go to www.PcPitstop.com and do your up/down speed
tests. The results should be pretty close to what your ISP advertises.

Bring the results back here and we can go to the next step.

Hi Larry, I had the same problem,
I tested my speed and

Download Speed: 221 kbps (27.6 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 156 kbps (19.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 92 ms

In my case, I am able to play online games well enough through the connection but load things like youtube and webpages very slowly.

I believe it to be a router issue because i just moved here and didn't bring the problem with me.

My router is a DIR-615

Thanks in advance.

Omg I used to have the exact same problem, and it seems a lot of people here at Toms have it! It happened on the pc that I did p2p on. Reformatted everything and it's alright now :S I started p2p again and it's slow again. I'm suspecting that my ISP is behind this. I'm pretty sure if you reformat and stop p2p, you can surf again... but I know that NO ONE can live without p2p ^.^ so I use only 1 pc to p2p now and then transfer the files over my network to another pc. Well, I haven't really implemented the plan yet, but that's what I'm planning to do, hopefully it works :D
