Ok I will run that Dos co

 

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 NOk IC.

Ok I run run the DOS command in a few minutes.....

 

That didn't work and I tried Speedtest with the Chrome Browser and same results...  I was going to up the RAM so when I take it in I'll have them put a New Nic in it and test it for speed...

 

 

 

Thanks again for your help.

Ok here's an update...

 

I took the computer into the shop and had another 2 Gigs of RAM added for a total of 4 Gigs, tho XP only sees 3 Gigs...  That's no problem... The A.I. program I am running eats a lot of RAM.. haha

 

I had them put in a new NIC Card and he said it was working at his shop... I get the computer home and when running I get a Orange/Red light on the Cisco WiFi Modem/Router but green lights on the New NIC card, one solid Green the other blinking (I told them either a 3Com Card or Intel) but they installed some cheap card...

 

Soooo I re-installed the drivers for the new card, no luck so I installed the driver for the onboard card again and shut down and got that card working again...

 

Here's where it gets weird, It started working correctly and I was getting the 55mps down and 5+mps I am suppose to get... Then I thought maybe it was something else I was doing or maybe Windows was having a hard time loading the driver...

 

I am on a fixed income so at Night when I'm done with the computer I shut it down and then turn off the Surge Protectors to save electricity (every little bit helps, haha)... Soo I tried an idea I had, It was working so I shut down for about 15 minutes (the computer and everything was Off no electricity going to them).... Then I booted up and the Internet was NOT giving me my 5+mps upload... So I installed the original drivers again and Boom! it was working again... What I ended up doing was Move all peripherals to a separate Surge Protector and left the tower on a surge protector by itself... Now I turn the Tower off and leave the Surge Protector ON and turn Off the one with all the peripherals plugged into it and it has worked for 3 days straight.... Maybe the Modem/Router needs some kind of Connection with the PC at all times even when it's shut down I don't know... My Lighted Keyboard & 4-Port USB box stay on after the PC is shut down (I can turn them off) so maybe the PC stays connected to the Modem/Router...

 

I have no clue if that was the real problem or it was just Windows having problems loading the driver or what it was but it's working now and I am happy... LOL

 

Chalk this one up to being a Weird Problem... haha

 

 

Thanks again for your time....

 

Keith

goto https://www.speedguide.net/downloads.php

 

grab tcp optimizer and run it and click on the optimized settings and it will tweek your TCP/IP parameters

that will open your NIC card up and increase throughput in both directions.

 

 

if you want to see suggestions on changes that can be made then go to the main page and select TCP Analyzer and

it will look at your setting and tell you what changes can be made in the registry or use the TCP Optimizer to make the

changes for you.

 

I used to use this all the time back in the xp days, great little program!
