Well it's Broke again..

 

 

I can't remember when the problem started but with Gmail it would take forever to insert a picture into the my emails and sometimes even attaching a file is slow....

 

I have lived at 3 different places in the last year and have had Comcast as a service provider each time... I was thinking maybe AVAST AV (FREE Version) with all it's shields was causing the problem but I am not sure. It was working fine a couple of years ago. I have used AVAST AV for years now.

 

I have changed the DNS Server from Microsofts to Google DNS server, I also quite a few years back used Steve Gibson's 'Shields UP' to block all the unused Ports on the computer.

 

Today a Comcast tech came out and set up my new 55mps Service and I am suppose to be getting at least 6.?mps Upload but all I get is 0.15mps with Speedtest.net...

 

Any ideas on what could be causing this????

 

 

Thanks

Are you connected wirelessly to your network or by and an ethernet cable?

Interesting, how old is your computer? Is this a laptop or desktop? What is the OS on the system? Who is the manufacturer of your NIC?

Sorry, a silly question on my part about OS. I'm multitasking at the moment.

Windows XP Professional SP3  Desktop.. It had the Motherboard, CPU (dual Core 2.9ghz) RAM & Power Supply replaced about 3 years ago.  NVIDIA nForce 10/100/1000 Mps Ethernet on motherboard., not a separate card.

This is sounding like a driver issue. Have you attempted to locate an updated driver for you NIC? From the motherboard manufacturer's website?

Also considering that Microsoft no longer supports Windows XP the motherboard manufacturer may not have developed updated drivers for your NIC. If this is the case I would recommend you add a separate NIC.

Well, this morning I'm back to square one. It's not working, it worked yesterday after the Mobo updates... I have a couple of things to try when I get home later...

Really? Now that is strange. What I would like for you to try when you do get home is to reset the connection. I like for you to open a command prompt in administrator mode. Then type netsh winsock reset, then restart your computer. This will completely reset your connection. If after this your connection drops in speed again then there is something physically wrong with your onboard NIC.
