This problem is driving me absolutely crazy and I am really hoping SOMEONE can help me! The problem is my wireless broadband internet connection has gone from being really fast for the last year to excruciatingly slow all of a sudden last week, and it has stayed that way. This happened once previously a couple of months back and getting rid of an old expired copy of Norton antivirus fixed it up straight away. But this time I've tried what seems like every single thing i've read in every web forum that has solved the problem for other people, but with no success.
Things I have tried;
Cleared browser caches
Tried in both IE and Firefox
Confirmed that my ISP has nothing to do with the slow speed
Tried plugging directly into my modem, ie. bypassing router
System restore to before the problem started
Switched off IPV6
Tried global autotuninglevel=disabled and ipconfig /flushdns
Uninstalled all the windows updates from around the time the problem started
Changed my power setting to maximum performance
Have tried starting in safe mode and it's still the same
(edit: have tried more things than this, but these are all that I can remember right now)
Have run spyware and malware scans and they came up with nothing
Virus scan (I use Avast) also came up clean.
Another computer in the house running XP is still fast.
I've heard some people mention rolling back driver network cards...but I can't do this as the option is not available as it has never updated.
OS: Vista Home Premium
6.0.6001 Service Pack 1 Build 6001
Hewlett-Packard G6000 Notebook PC
I think I would literally be the happiest person in the world if one of you can help me solve this..
I'm not really all that knowledgeable when it comes to computers so if any of what i've typed above doesn't make sense or is silly or if this is in the wrong section I apologise, and also if there is any other info I need to provide just let me know.
Thanks in advance! *fingers crossed*
