I've been looking everywhere about how to increase me MBPS but can't find anything to help. I have a fairly old computer (2005 hp f70) that I just started up for the first time in a  few years. I run through wifi and use a USB thing to get internet to my desktop. I've debugged/de-virused it and, updated everything to the newest possible that I know of, defragmented it, did almost everything that I can do but my MBPS it still measly 3.4. (Que laughter). I try to stream Netflix and movies but both skip. I assume because of my MBPS. ANY answers that might be a possible way to fix my MBPS or streaming would be much appreciated!

 

 

 

Until next time, 

Bruce Wayne

Maybe I'll try a new router or a new USB wifi adapter and see if that could do anything. But then again it could be a hardrive thing.

No your speed is determined by what you are paying for through time warner.

Right now I'm paying for the standard setup. Not the best but not the worst. Should be around 4-7 8ish Mbps but only running in the 3's. Would much rather see it in around the 7's

THat is why you are seeing less then your desired speeds try it wired up to the router to see what speeds you get. I get 85 Megabit down and 45 Megabit up on wired, but on wireless I get roughly half those speeds on wireless.

I have TWC also (standard, wired ethernet)...download is 15.47, while upload is 1.07.  I'd take a look at browser add-ons myself to try to get a clue.
