Default Anyone else noticing how slow net is today?

This www is pathetic today. Anyone else notice how slow it's been? It's slow from all angles whether downloading or not. Right now a driver download is upto only 2% and it's been about 1/2 hour. Jeez.

A tracert can be a good way to diagnose where the slowdown may be occurring. Open a command prompt window (Start -> Run -> "cmd") and type in :

tracert www.google.com

(this does a trace route to google, replace with the website that seems slow to you if you're only experiencing slowdowns for a particular website)

This will start the trace and it will show you the response time at each hop. If one particular hop has a high "ms" rating or it times out completely (has a * instead of a "ms" rating), then that's where the slowdown is.

If it's your ISP's server that's causing the slow down, then it will probably slow down all websites. Otherwise, the slowdown may be isolated to a few selected websites because they all happen to get routed through the same (slow) server. If it's not your ISP, then sometimes changing your proxy or DNS servers can cause a different route to be used instead.

I did that here I had a lot of drop outs or would not complete the route. Today the download speed is a ok. I have no idea of what the actual problem was.

I'm keeping this in mind. I had a few words w/Verizon DSl because I was suppose to be upgraded to 1 mbps a while back. They never really did, and when I noticed this slowdown which affected all sites I called them. They never gave me a real explanation just a e-mail of tips on how to troubleshoot. They then called and asked if everything was ok and that they appreciate my business.

Well they should as I'm locked in for a year and Time Warner's no better, and Fios hasn't reached my residence. So basically they're fos, and I just have to make do which really isn't that bad generally, but a faster DL time would come in handy.

I did notice my ethernet connection on my I/O plate doesn't secure the cable so this also could have added some grief. Now I almost have to force the cable in to lock. I'm thinking RMA before it breaks or really goes bad. I tested w/2 different cables, and both didn't lock on my build, but did w/my Dell. So it's the connector. PITA these luxury problems sometimes.
