I have two desktop computers both running windows 7 and both connected to the internet wirelessly using the same Asus wireless router. The one PC runs just great and the other takes forever (15-20 seconds) to bring up a web page. When I use "Speedtest.net" to measure download speed the one gets 45-55 Mb/sec and the other will not even run let alone report a speed.


I run System Mechanic Pro on both as well as MalwareBytes and CCleaner now and then. The PC with the problem has always performed wonderfully until about a week ago. I have tried Firefox, IE, and Chrome but the results are the same for all browsers. I have also connected to the router directly with CAT 5 and it makes no difference. I have no idea what has caused this nor do I know what to do to fix it.


I would really appreciate having help in performing further troubleshooting and getting this machine back to normal.

If possible, try plugging the computer directly in to the router to rule out the wifi card as a problem. 


In Internet Explorer, go into Tools -> Internet Options -> Connections -> LAN Settings. If anything in there is checked, uncheck it.


To test connectivity, go into Command Prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd.exe) and type: ping google.com

See what kind of ping times you get. You should probably be getting under 30ms pings.
