Lately my wireless internet has been extremely slow on my laptop. It is usually extremely fast. I have Adelphia cable. The possible way for me to use it is too hook it up to my router which defeats the purpose of Wireless. So any help would be appreciated.

Try doing this,

Firefox(latest)
  • Tools
  • Clear Private Data
  • Download History, Authenticated Sessions, Cache, and Browsing History
Internet Explorer(latest)
  • Tools
  • Internet Options
  • Try History, and temporary files.
I suggest that you get Clean Up 4.0 For clearing your temporary files.

I really recommend that if you don't use Firefox, to get it. Firefox 2.0

Sorry if this didn't work, I really don't all of this 'technical' stuff.

Hi. You may also try unplugging your modem and router for at least 30 seconds, and then turning them on in this order... Turn on the router, and wait about 15 seconds, and once all the ready lights are lit, plug-in the modem, and wait an additional 15 or so seconds. Once the lights clear, let the computers connect, and you should be on your way. Sometimes this helps when the internet suddenly goes slowly.
