Could really use some help here. PLEASE!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I really am out of answers, so I am gonna ask on this board. There seems to be a lot of very experienced people who come here, so maybe someone can help me find my issue.

I am experiencing slow-down with my DSL connection. But the slow down is very odd. If I am searching the web, or downloading torrent files through utorrent, everything is fine. My connection by default isn't very fast. I run at a max of about 1.5 meg download rate. But I am use to it, because I live in a very wooded area of Louisiana.

My issue comes when streaming videos on youtube, or any other video site. If I open a video, and just let it load and stream, its usually fine. But if I try to skip to other areas of the video, my internet starts slowing. Evenually slowing to about .15 megs of download speed. The speed will stay very slow until I either unplug, then replug my modem in, or just wait about 15 minutes and the connection returns to normal.

I know it's the connection its self that is slowing, because when it happened last night I did a speed test on my iphone, testing my wireless network connection, and it too was very slow.

I can't figure out the issue. I am running an almost brand new PC set up. Here are my specs.

P8P67 Deluxe Motherboard
i7 2600k chip OCed to 4.5 ghz
4 GB of Kingston 1600 memory
Coolermaster 1000 PSU
OS is installed on a 64 GB Corsair SSD
Corsair Liquid cooled
GTX 560 ti Graphics card

My Modem is an AT&T 2wire wireless modem

Please tell me someone can help with me with this issue. I just don't know what it could be.

All drivers are up to date....

Call your ISP and have them check your settings at your end and make sure they check the line and everything at their end. Demand it, otherwise they will send you on a wild goose chase on searching of spyware on your PC.

Well newegg had a special on corsair vengeance RAM. I just ordered 8 GB for 75.00 plus shipping. So I will know if its that soon enough. I just dont get why it only happens when I try to skip around the video. If I just let it play, I have no issues. And downloading files I never have a problem either. It just doesnt make any sense to me at all.

There is no way the OP's RAM would be the culprit here, as the OP's iPhone has nothing to do with his PC. This is definitely network related.

There could be a multitude of things going on?

OP do you have another computer to test with other than the one you alrdy mentioned. If this occurs with multiple systems I would start looking at the line, modem and router. If it is just the one system that starts to utilize the majority of the bandwidth you could have some other process running in the background that is taking up those resources and would start looking at possible virus or malicious code running in the background.

I would like to thank everyone for your adivice. I tried everything that was suggested to me, except calling my ISP. But nothing worked. I cleaned my computer of virus, spyware, malware, trojans, and anything else I could. I cleaned my registry, all kinds of stuff. Finally I broke down this morning and and completely formatted my SSD and started brand new with Windows 7 Ultimate. "The same OS I was running before"

I have been spending the better part of the morning updating all my device drivers, and getting my programs back in order. I am pleased to say that my issue has been completely fixed by this, proving that the issue was souly inside my software the entire time. I will make sure to be more careful this time. It's funny, I had the same Dell desktop for 4 years and never had a single issue. Then I shell out almost 2 grand building this system, and have a major issue in the first 2 months of owning it. Oh well! Thank you all again for the help.

If you can speed test with your phone can you stream with it? If so try and see if skipping arround makes the slow down to rule out you pc having a hardware issue

So there is a program that speeds up downloads by running multiple connections its called "DAP" and when you install it it has a add-on called "video accelerator" that helps speed up online videos. People will flame saying its BS but just try it it works like a charm. Here is the download link.DAP Link.

Its a heck of a program hope I helped.
