Hey all, so I have a strong signal from my modem, but browsing is incredibly slow and pages only partially load if they do at all. I'm running Windows 8.

Major sites such as Google, Facebook, and Youtube are slow to load, especially Google, which doesn't load at all most of the time. Other sites load a little faster but browsing is generally slow on all browsers I have (I use Firefox primarily). Browsing on OTHER devices in my house, however, is fine. It's only on my computer. I use WiFi.

I already tried:

-shutting down
-troubleshooting with connection/network adapter
-flushing the DNS
-running quick scan with kaspersky
-clearing cookies
-disc cleanup
-defraging hard drive
-resetting the modem
-reinstalling java
-reinstalling flash

-updating firefox

Sometimes I get SSL-related errors when webpages try to load. I don't know how to resolve the issue in Firefox, but I "reactivated" TLS/SSL in IE, and I still had problems.


This forum runs better, not the best, but like I said, it's mostly major websites that are slow. Especially when I log into one. Example: Facebook home page will load fine, but when I log in, only the top bar will show.

It's so confusing and I can't figure it out to save my life :ranting:
