Hello,

Pls. provide speedtest results and post it here> http://www.speedtest.net/

Any other computers that experiencing the same issue as yours?

Are you or anybody in your home network using any P2P Apps? This can slow down your web connection tremendously.

Also, if your computer is running any Anti-Virus scan it can slow down everything.

You may try a Malwarebytes scan, see if this helps => http://fileforum.betanews.com/detail...e/1186760019/1

Hope this helps.

Is this something that is temporary, or on going? Microwave ovens emit signals in the 2.4GHz, so be aware of you're environment if it's intermittent. Also, secure your wireless, or other people nearby can piggyback on your bandwidth. If it has been ongoing, you might just try restarting the router.
Check also that it's the Internet connection that is slow, not your system altogether (which could be virus related as suggested by 2xgrump), or a browser issue.

My result from Speedtest.net Showed that the Download was 0.88 Mb/s, Upload was 0.27 Mb/s And the ping was 33 ms.

No other of the computers in the house has showed the same.

Sometimes there is being used P2P Apps. But not all the time.

While i run a virus scan, i does nothing at that computer at the same time.

The malwarebytes scan found a couple of infected files. But it didn't get the internet speed up.

It is on going. It started about a week ago.

These troubleshooting tips might be of helped.

Changing the Router's Channel to a 1, 7 or 11 might help.

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and try to connect. Make SURE you use the correct encryption key.

Changing the encryption from a WEP to WAP or from a WAP to WEP (from the ROUTER's settings) might help as well.

Hey.

Thank you for the help, but anyway i found the problem. My firewall had in someway blocked all my browsers, and i think it might have been one of the infected files i found with "Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware" that did it. So thank you very much.
