Fix slow speed of Internet connection

How to fix slow Internet connection in your system?


The type of Internet connection used is the most important factor for determining your Internet connection speed. Dial-up, DSL, and cables are the three most common Internet connections. DSL and cable are faster than dial-up. Dial-up connection provides a couple of ways to optimize your Internet speed. Wireless networks operate on specific frequencies. Some devices like microwave ovens or cordless phones work on the same frequencies, which could create interferences with wireless network. This would result in slow Internet access or data loss. Therefore, you need to place those devices away from the network access point. The speed for your Internet connection depends on the add-on programs, the amount of memory in the computer, hard disk space and condition, and the programs that you are running. Slow Internet connection wastes your time.


Following are some of the causes of slow speed of Internet connection in your system symptoms and tips to fix the issue:




  • Bad network card

  • Problem with driver software

  • Virus infection



Bad network card



Physically damaged network card would provide a bad network access. Before connecting the system to Internet, you need to check the connection for the network card to your system. If the card is damaged you will manage to get only a limited connectivity. You need to replace the damaged one with a new one. Network card upgrade would help to provide high speed Internet in your system.



Problem with driver software



Network card can work only with compatible driver software. If the driver gets corrupted, then you will find it difficult to access Internet properly or the connection speed would reduce gradually after connecting. Uninstall the incompatible driver and install latest compatible driver in your computer. Driver updates would help you to provide high speed Internet
