Slow Page Loading but normal download speeds

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have a AT&T broadband connection going through a netgear router. I have two computers connected wirelessly to the default gateway computer. One of them is emachines desktop with a MSI wireless antenna adapter. The other is a laptop with a built in wireless adapter.

On the emachines desktop, the internet experiences very slow page loading (most of the time). However, the download speeds are perfect.

On my laptop, everything is fine. And the default gateway computer is also fine. So it can't be a router problem or a modem problem.

So the problem is narrowed down to the emachines wireless antenna (MSI). I reinstalled the drivers for the antenna but that didnt help. And even if there was a problem with the antenna, wouldnt it affect the download speeds? but my download speeds are fine (as mentioned above).

Thanks for the help in advance.

I have a problem sometimes with my page loading, and usually this is caused by a fluctuating connection. When you go to a website, you download the webcontent from their sever and upload your IP and relevant information to them. If you don't have a steady connection, then that throws a wrench in the process. If your emachine is like mine it uses a 10/100mb ethernet card. You could try borrowing a buddies and testing with another LAN card to see if that fixes the problem.

thank you for replying.

I am not using the ethernet port. I have a wireless adapter. You said that the fluctuating connection might be because of the hardware? if thats the case, wouldnt download speeds be fluctuating as well? my download speeds are constant.

I can download content steady but still time out on servers all the time. Usually I have to disconnect my wireless and reconnect, or reset the router to fix it. Since you said it was only the emachines having a problem with it, I assumed that it is an unsteady connection. This is going of my personal experience.

I tried that already, no luck.

@mothergoose
I'm thinking you're right about the unsteady connection. BUT resetting the router and reconnecting only fixes this issue temporarily. So I guess this really is a hardware issue and should probably buy a new wireless adapter.

Thanks for your help.

It could also by the network line you have. I switch between to houses; both with comcast broadband connection. One goes out a few times a week, another is steady almost 100% of the time. The one that is steady had a direct line dug in under our yard when they installed the conection. The one that goes out all the time sucked pretty bad when we had a different router and provider too. That house is getting a direct line dug in this week and I think that may solve the problem.

If the connection taps out randomly it is the card, if you are connected but the speed just sucks could be something else. Only say that because resetting the router had any effect for you.
