Hey. I was wondering if there is something I can do to make my Internet faster or running more successful. I use a high speed Internet connection. Thanks for any advise.

You'll need to provide a bit more info for others to help you.

Are you on DSL? Who's your carrier if so?

Or are you on cable? Who's your carrier?

We need some specifics about your computer system, OS, modem type, etc.

OK

Hang on for one of the pros.

I'm not savvy on cable systems and modems.

But I'm sure they'll help "tune you up", and I learn some too!

If you are using IE to access the internet, you can see some speed difference, just by switching to either Opera or Firefox. They are both free alternatives.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.

Road Runner in most areas of the US is rated at 3000 Kbps download, 384 Kbps upload. You can run a speed test at http://speedtest.dslreports.com. A good connection will typically yield 2500+ download and 300+ upload rates. Much lower than that and you might want to try some of the diagnostic tools available at http://www.dslreports.com/tools.
