I need help w/ very, very slow web page updates and downloads to my Dell Dimension 4600 pc (Windows XP Pro SP2, Intel Pentium4 x 2.4ghz) connected to internet thru Dell TrueMobile 2300 router which is connected to DSL cable modem provided by Consolidated.net ISP. The web updates on this pc are as slow as a phone line modem connection.
The cable modem and router are working ok because if I connect my old Compaq laptop to the same router port as the Dell pc, web page updates & downloads are very, very fast. I can then connect my Dell pc to the same router port, and the web page updates are very, very slow.
The web page address shows immediately on the lower left side of the Internet Explorer window, but there is a 30-45 second delay before the web page first comes up on the screen. Then it continues to slowly shows up on the screen. I also have a wirelss connected Compaq pc connected to this same router, and the updates to this wireless connected pc are very, very fast.
I have Norton Antivirus and Norton Internet Security installed on the Dell pc, both in auto-protect mode. I tried disabling both software packages, but no change to the web page updates to the Dell pc. I ran several anti-spyware software packages (Spybot Search & Destroy, CW Shredder & Ad-aware), but internet pages still update and files still download very slow on Dell pc.
I pinged www.google.com and got response "destination host unreachable". Pls help.
I ran CCleaner and it reported 159mb to be removed, but I haven't yet run the Cleaner pending help.
