    The last couple of days my wifi (100mb/s fiber optic connection) seems to have a hard time. Starting with game streaming, geforce now measures over 50mb/s but finds extreme latency (sometimes over 300). Moving on from that, downloading files from the internet is extremely unstable as the...

    Hello, I have been experiencing these spikes in my ping. And these episodes where my ping is spiking to 300 can last to 1 day up to 2 weeks. I have downloaded the newest drivers for my network adapter and etc.

    My regular internet speed is 35-40 mbps. Lately, I'm only getting about 1. If I reboot the router, it goes back to normal, but only lasts about an hour. Do I need a new router?

    So for some reason my internet download speed decreases when I plug in my second monitor to my laptop. The download speed when removing the monitor is 180mbps. When attaching, it is about 80. I have been looking all over online, but I cannot seem to find an explanation or solution to my problem.

    I've been experiencing some Zoom problems and I ran an internet speed test for four computers in my house. They weren't all in the exact same location but close and equidistant to the Google Nest but the results are widely different. What would explain this immense variety between four computers...

    My router readings of its downstream rate is about 22Mbps but when I conduct a speed test, it can only reach up to 10mbps (and yes, I know that I am subscribed with a 10Mbps Plan). Is there a way I can use that 22mbps? I know its a form of cheating/[email protected] but I would like to know if there's a...

    I recently built my first PC and i got it hooked up. It works fine and it connects to my wifi just fine. Im across the house from the router itself but my phone works fine on the wifi in my office but my pc is incredibly slow, taking up to 5 minutes to load a page. I know close to nothing about...

    I check speed with Ookla. I get Ping = 11 ms (which I think is slow) Download=240.05Mbps and upload =11.77Mbps I downloaded a vid file of 11.190Mb and it took 4:54. Hmm on a 240Mbps it should have loaded almost instantly. Telling me that the provider upload is only 0.038 MBps upload. Accounting...

    I have a Dell Inspiron 3542 with Windows 10. I recently upgraded my router to speeds of 100 MBPS. When I checked through "Speedtest" ,while connected to WiFi it only marked up to 40 or so. Then I connected it to the Ethernet, same thing. I called the provider, the technician did the same and...

    Hello everyone! So I've always had a slow internet speed, about 6-15mbps. I pay for 300mbps (big family) but I honestly thought it was my cheap cat5 cable. Then i upgraded my whole computer. That is: a new ssd drive, mobo, cpu, ram and windows 10 fresh install. I still had slow speed. This...
