Strange Internet Speed Issues But Just On One Computer

I am hoping that someone here can point me in the right direction for this issue. On my desktop, I have been getting very low internet speeds. When I run a speed test using Google's speed test I am getting 8-14 Mbps down 5 up but then when I turn on my VPN speeds go back to where they should be at around 45-50 down 9 up. Now I thought I might be getting throttled but when I test on a laptop sitting in the same spot as the desktop with no VPN I am getting the speeds I pay for, 63 down 9 up. Same with a cellphone, same distance from the router and getting good fast speeds 60 up 9-10 down. So it seems that it is only with the desktop and only when not using a VPN. With the VPN off slow speeds but with VPN on back to speeds where it should be. The desktop is brand new windows 10 and because the speeds go up with a VPN it does not seem to be a hardware issue or bandwidth issue. Any Ideas on where to start looking for what may be causing this?

Very slow internet speed only on computer

In the past two days my computer has been at under 128 kbps internet speed. Normal speed was around 26 mbps. I can't even load up speed test and it doesn't look like anything is using it up in task manager. I even tried a new Ethernet cable too.  Windows 64 bit, Asus Maximus VIII, Intel i5 6600, GTX 1060, 8GB Ram, and 750 watt PSU ...

Weird issues with computer finding internet.

Hello,The other day, my computer randomly disconnected from the internet and is now unable to reconnect. In fact it's unable to show me any available networks in my desktop. Which is weird because when I reboot and go onto the lock screen, on the bottom right there is a network button. It shows available networks but doesn't let me connect to mine. I run the network troubleshooter, and it says the issue is that I am not connected to a network. When I go in to device manager, it doesn't show an...

Internet Speed Issues - Issue with laptop?

For some time I have been experiencing low speeds peaking at around 2mbs, bust mostly sitting at 0.5. My ISP has been working away and found no issues so I thought I would do a little test. On my PCspecialist laptop i get the problem, but on my rather old Desktop HP using an external Netgear wifi I get the expected 12mb. Any ideas before I raise a support case?...

Serious Internet Speed Issues

Hello,   About 3-4 days ago, my internet speeds dropped significantly. Normally I get around 600KB/s down, and 100KB/s up. Don't laugh. At the moment though, I am suffering from constant internet drop outs and nothing more than 50KB/s up or down. I've called my ISP multiple times and nothing they have been able to do has helped at all. We have found some static on the phone line so it very well may be that some part of the line is broken. I have someone from Telstra (who own basically ...

Advice on solving internet speed issues + VoIP connectivity

Hello everyone, New to the Tech Guy, apologies if I'm posting in the wrong forum.

Work VPN causes issues with internet and windows explorer. Can't restart computer as start menu gets locked

Sorry for the confusing title... it's necessary because it's a confusing situation: I work from home 3 days a week and connect over VPN to my work using Shrewsoft VPN using Windows 10.

Computer has a slower internet speed than my phone

Hi, lately my computer has been receiving lousier and lousier internet speeds :( My wifi plan is the Singtel 300Mbps fibre optic (dual band). Using speedtest.net, on the 5G network, my computer recorded 140Mbps~ This is pretty different from the 300Mbps im paying for. But on my phone, using the speedtest.net app, the same 5G network, and from the same spot as my computer, the phone recorded 297Mbps. I'm using the stock singtel router (Aztec FG7003GR). My computer's wifi card is a Broadc...

Internet speed issues on one pc (Home Lan)

Hi guys, I'm having the weirdest internet issue, and I'm hoping someone can shed some light on it! Basically, my pc is the only device that doesn't reach the internet speed we're paying for, which is 30mb. It barely reaches 5mb (download), and 2mb (upload).

We have a router that enables 5Ghz and 2.4Ghz frequencies, my pc only con...

I think every human being should have a nice house with access to high speed internet

and clean water! Would that be a bad thing? I think this is unacceptable! Why do the people who live on the houses on the right not care about the people on the left? If everyone lived in a clean environment would humanity end up becoming like the Quarians? Or does evolution not happen that way?...

Are there any computer mice makers besides Logitech that offer a 2-speed metal inertial scroll wheel, like on the Logitech m705, m560, etc? [on hold]

I very much like the ability to switch between 'fast inertial scrolling' and 'tactile step scrolling', but I have found so far that Logitech is the only maker of such a scroll wheel. The middle wheel click is replaced by a clutch, when pressed, changes the mouse between 'inertial scrolling' and 'tactile step scrolling' modes. The wheel also has a left and right tilt which can be configured as two extra mouse buttons. I've used the m705 in the past and now the m560. The older Performance MX mous...

Computer Speed is too slow?

We tend to stuff our computers with back-up files, programs running in background, caches, cookies and temp files which are enough for a computer running slow. Also, hard-disk space, virus infected system and long due reboot could also affect your computer’s speed....
