Default Slow Internet

Advertisement

For some reason my internet has been really slow lately, even when playing COD i lag alot more often.

Just trying to post this it took like a minute (just to load the page)

i dunno what it is, or could possibly be, thats why im asking YOUUUUUUU!

If you have run into problems like this before, or know what could possibly cayse this, please tell me.


ive REALLY noticed it on VGR, is that just cause the sites having issues and its just making me paranoid so i think everything is lagging???

First of all I would advise to run a virus scan, because it's very odd that your internet slows down drastically.
There also is a possibility that somebody is heavily downloading on your internet connection which also slows your internet down.
You can always run a speedtest or call your provider if you really can't find a solution.

I get this all the time.
Our ISP is having problems all the time so one second we have 8 MBps and the second later we have 0.25 MBps.
The worst part is that it mostly stays at 0.25 MBps.
But atleast it has become better.

Dunno what's causing your problem though.
Would say virus or downloading or both if I have to guess.

If you have WiFi, it's possible that someone is downloading on your network.
Just make sure you've got a WEP key set on your router.
Here's something that might help finding out if somebody's downloading on your network or not: http://www.howtodothings.com/compute...ling-your-wifi
