Since buying a new pc with windows xp i find the internet to be slower. That is, sometimes when i click a link the progress bar appears at the bottom but it can take 3-4 minutes to actually load. If i click the link again it sometimes seems to force the issue and load up, or i can cancel all together and try again and it loads up ok.
Is there some setting i can tweak?
My system is:-
512mb ddr ram
Are u on WinXP Pro at all? if so have u set the QoS i think protocol to 0% because i think its set at 20% and u dont need it taking away ur bandwith. Does this problem happen with all web sites or just one? have u cleared ur internet cache, history, files?
My xp is Home edition, ive cleared my temp internet and history files.
It happens on pretty much all web sites at some time. Sorry its hard to explain wot i mean, i can go to a site and it loads fine, if i go back to the site a couple of minutes later it ages to load, but also the complete opposite can happen, ie i go to a site and it takes ages, try again in a couple of minutes and it loads almost immeadiately.
Also, it happens at different times in the day/night.
When i put my curser over the internet connection near the clock it generally shows around 44 to 46 Kbps.
Just the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.
