I was finally able to sit down and try the suggestions in rockmilk's guide.  I did not use JRT or AdwCleaner as instructed.  


I am still not seeing any improvement in internet speed.  I have been getting between 24 and 5 Mbps download speed.  The other laptop is getting 75 to 60 all day.


What step should I take next?


Thanks, Leigh

As per my reply #12

If still no improvement with FF I would suggest that the notebook is tried using another wireless connection at a friends or family members home etc, alternatively if you happen to know someone with a wireless USB dongle see if you can borrow it to try on the notebook at home, wireless cards normally just fail and not suffer low transfer speeds but they can suffer from the effects of heat, does the notebook feel hot at all and predominantly on the base.



Has FF been tried as an alternative to IE and Chrome.


NB: Trying the computer at another location or with a USB type wireless dongle will help to determine if the notebooks wireless card is the cause.
