Hi Guys

I'm having a problem with my computer which i'm going nuts over it.

The Problem.

I have two computers at home both Xp and they have the same specs in everything from ram to hard drive etc they are identical computers. they are both connected to one router/modem that goes out to the internet. Now one computer is fast in terms of accessing the sites no matter if its the first time i ever visted that particular web page but the other computer is only fast if that would be the second time i access that web site, if it it a site that entered for the first time it will be slow and sometime when i try to update the that computer it will download updates for ages and sometimes just ended up loosing the connection.

Please help me out i just blew 200 bucks call this help desk people and all they can offer me a non working solution, please HELP ME i don't wanna go crazy over this.

I need to know what is causing this???? and a solution if possible please

Welcome mate,

This is definitely a Networking topic, I will ask a mod to move it to the right location for you! Much more likely to get an answer if your post in the right spot next time. :)

Hi kaikoa19 and :)

What is the make and model number of the router and the modem?
Have you tried resetting the router and the modem?

Unplug the router and unplug the modem.
Plug the modem in and wait for it to finish its self checks.
Plug the router in and wait for it to finish its self checks.
Test your connection.
