IIS (internet information services) has nothing to do with your connection speed... IIS is the Microsoft web server suite of utilities that are used to host web sites on an internal computer....

from what i was told things have been removed that is needed for the internet to work properly, thats why it was given to me

what exactly does that mean?

IIS is a set of programs by microsoft for hosting a web server with SQL ASP and HTTP, It'd only make your net slower as it would enable your computer to be used as a web server, If your internet is running slow, I suggest you go to windows update and make sure you're all up to date, as you may be missing something vital like an update to support faster internet speeds, or updates to the windows firewall.

If you look in windows components, you should have a box which says "Networking Services", click on it, but don't tick it, then press "Details.." and make sure the box which says "Internet Gateway Device discovery and control client" is checked, then press OK

That might be what you need.

what you need to do is get your hands on a windows disk that's the same as the one you've got...and then use it to install the windows components that are missing
