Hi, I just moved to a new place and there isn't any wireless router available yet so I am using an Ethernet cable for now for my browsing needs. The problem is my Ethernet port isn't a snug fit when I plug it in and now my browsers(Firefox and Chrome) are sluggish and unresponsive or hangs when I'm loading new pages. I did a scan with Hijackthis because I thought I would need it just in case someone would ask for the log file. Please help. thanks

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

Can you please describe to us how you have everything set up?

What type of modem do you have?

Is your modem and router built into the same system?

Give us the make and model number of all devices that are between your incoming Internet connection and your computer.

You say that your Ethernet cables plug does not fit correctly into the Ethernet jack, this may be causing your problem, but then again, it may be caused by a setting you have on the Internet related devices or on your computers Ethernet related properties.

Having incorrect settings on a router or your computers networking settings can result in slower Internet related activity.

It appears you were fine while you used a wireless connection, my question to you is are you using the same equipment you were using when you had a wireless connection?
