Hello, so I seem to be having a problem with Internet connectivity.
Ever since maybe a couple months ago, I've been having an odd problem with my Internet.
My Internet continues to be slow and overall, have a shotty connection. For example, it'll continue to switch between being fine and limited connectivity. What's funny is it has full bars and my laptop isn't but 5-10 feet away from my router, yet these problems persist. At times, it will literally refuse to work for a random amount of time before it just lets me back on like no problem.

Can anyone help fix this?

:welcome:   That one shady guy

 

 

First thing I suggest is flushing the DNS Cache "how to" below;

1.Press the Windows key then type in cmd (do not press Enter)
2.In the search results that come up, right click “cmd” and run as administrator, when the screen flashes and asks for permission, accept it.
3.In the command prompt type in ipconfig /flushdns (or right click and paste it to the command prompt) then press Enter.
You should then see a dialog box saying successfully flushed resolver cache, if so you are done.

 

So that we can see what is going on with the hardware and software, download then run Speccy and post the resultant url for us please, details here

Include the url in your next reply please, there is no personal or security information in the report so it is perfectly safe.

Link is legit I have been posting here for 4 years. :)  The moderators would not allow me to still be active, if I were posting bad links.
