Can you test another computer on your network? I'm curious if the issue is related to your computer.

so is that Dell b130 the 2nd computer to exhibit the problem? or it is the only one you've tried thus far?

okay so if multiple computers have the same symptom we can rule out a computer issue. what other network equipment do you have? cable modem and router? does the router have the latest firmware?

yeah the guy dropped the modem but said it couldn't have done anything so a tech came out he gave me a new one but still have the same problem the tech said everything looked good so he never seen a problem like this and then told me to try my laptop when i did thats when it first didn't download or let me visit websites a t the same time then when he was about to leave i told him it let me download and visit websites he said it could be my desktop and i told him my laptop is old and slow even after re installing windows xp so it can't be my computer my desktop is three years old and i used to have 20 down 2 up i didn't have problems downloading and visiting websites at the same time
