    Hey all, its been a while since Ive been so stumped.

    My internet speed is abysmally slow <300k slow. Iam supposed to have 25mbps..... I have tried clearing cache, run crap cleaner, and cleared cache, spy bot and ad aware..... nothing seems to help. I tried a sys restore to b4 this started happening and nothin. No new programs

    It effects both browsers, chrome and firefox...

    my room mates computer is aok we are both on the same wireless connection. My computer literally sits on the modem (I cant use a wired connection, it doesnt recognise it I think the last modem took it out when it stopped working)). Roommates comp gets 12000kb/s and I get 330 ishkb/s. (speed test.io)

    hes does have Win 7

    I have win xp sp3, with 3gb ram...athlon 64 3200
    the comp is 3.5 years old.....the fan is in check (not running at full tilt), I cleaned the cooler on it 4 months ago, not that it needed it..
    flash has been updated after an uninstall, and reboot.......ad blocker is off....no errant processes....

    even my tablet gets 9.9mb/s

    w
    t
    f

    am i not doing or looking at?


    Is it time for a new computer? I tried to do an xp reinstall with the disk, but cuz its an older version it wouldnt let me....I want to run win 8 when it arrives, but I cant wait till then.......

    Try updating or reinstalling your wireless adapter driver.

    I'd also run Malwarebytes with the most thorough scan available.
