Slow Internet Browsing

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

Just started happening

I recently purchased a new case (Coolermaster Gladiator) and I obviously had to move over my motherboard. I'm completely sure if this has to do with the problem but it did start happening after the transfer. Anyways, the main problem is that my internet has been VERY slow lately. It's usually never this slow. I use chrome and decided to try a different browser since that might possibly fix it. I tried Opera and it really didn't make a difference. I've used firefox in the past and it didn't work out too well. I do use wireless internet but my connection has been the same, either four bars or full bars. Steam games also appear a bit laggy. My main issue however is with youtube and other video sites. The buffer takes hours and it was never like that before. I know I kinda posted stuff in random order but I was just getting all my thoughts out at once. If you someone may know whats up/a solution, please comment. Or if they know something that could boost performance.

    In the back, stick a pencil inside that little hole that says Reset. But dunno if it is going to fix the problem. Maybe call your ISP? Because sometimes I drop packets, and get really slow. Then I call them and they come and fix it. But I know how to troubleshoot any problem. If you call your ISP this is what they are going to tell you what to do.
      Steps
    1. Go To Your Router
    2. Unplug It
    3. Wait 10 Minutes
    4. Replugin
    There you go. Might not work. And maybe you have a browsing uberstyle? That might slow it down some...

    If there is a disk that came with your router, I recommend that you use it. Some routers require software to run most efficiently.

    Ok well now its back to its silly self and will occasionally just freeze up. The browser only does this, not the actually computer.
