I have ie7 and windows xp 512 ram pentium 4 3.19 ghz
i have a broadband connection of 1mbps. This is share with others and i also have a wireless connection to my laptop.
Recently i went on vacation. During that time the modem turned off so my neighbour who is sharing my net connection came to turn on the modem. However when i returned i noticed my computer was also used and all my connections and my computer skewed up.
Now i can access the net can chat etc . but the pages are running VERY slowly, sometimes they dont even open up, or some parts of the page arent being displayed, I get the "Page cannot be displayed" ALOT, often need to refresh the page 5+ times for it to fully load, videos I stream online wont run until I've refreshed alot of times. Alot of sites I've completely given up on just because they dont work at my pace especially hotmail .
I thought it was a connection problem since sometimes it works reasonably weel and sometimes it is dead slow. But now when i use the laptop simultaneously i dont see the problem on the laptop. The pages open on the laptop in a jiffy. Thus i know the problem is my computer and not the connection
I have done virus scan trojan scan spyware etc nothing is found there can someone please help me restore my internet connection to its old speed. I tried tcp optimizer etc. BUt i dont know what i should be really doing.
I really in need of the internet connection since i have to submit my modules for a course on june 21 st and i am unable to search any information for this purpose quickly.\
PLEASE if anybody out there can help please help.
