I am on a wireless connection. I am unsure how to check the speed. I would be happy to share of someone could walk me through how to do it.
I did a "speed test" online and found my Download speed is: 8.59 Mb/s and my upload speed was: 0.93 Mb/s.
I am unsure what all this means.
Hello, sorry it took me so long to get back, but that is just about all I know, is the speed test. That I do believe, is from your Internet provider. Is this the one you used?Speakeasy - Speed Test
That is the one I use.
When was the last time you did maintenance? I mean, clear temp Int files, History, Defrag, run disc cleanup? It might help you a TAD, maybe but is also good to do on a monthly basis. normally, will not speed up your computer , but will help get things moving a little smoother. As long as you don't have any viruses or malware. If it is just slow connection, I doubt if you can do much about that.
Has this just started, or has it always been slow? Might be good, too, to contact your Internet Service Provider. I have also heard that Comcast has been quite slow lately. Hope that helps a little.
I would like to know what speed you were before it slowed down, and when, I just did a speed test, and mine is a whole lot slower:
DL: 0.02 Mbps= 19 kbps
UL: 0.14 Mbps =139 kbps
So, in theory, mine is a lot slower, but that is more due to dial up.
