Internet speed
well u see I got this problem where after I start my computer...after a while the connection speed starts to fall dramatically...coming to a point where I cannot even buffer a simple youtube video.

got a pretty new lap Acer Aspire 5920
Vista home
I live in student halls...(but I dont think this is the problem of the speed since I started experiencing it long after I got here)maybe it can be a software problem but I simply do not want to format it since I will be having some major programs lost like windows office.
Even checking the Vista monitoring(I dont know exactly the name since I use foreign language) I can see that my system seems to be improving in performance since back days(something I dont really experience)
If you can help in any way just to find the problem I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks for taking the time.

What browser are you using? Did you try different one?

Post some computer info: processor type, amount of RAM, hard drive size/free space

should the problem lie in mozilla firefox's new updated version 3.0.3??? I havent really tried another browser since mozilla seemed faster than all others but I'll give it a try.

computer info.
OS: Vista home premium 32b
processor: intel core duo CPU T9300 @ 2.50GHz
HDD: 250 sorted in 2 partitions C:70G free of 110 total, D:60G free of 107

I'm sure that is the problem. When you live in a student halls your internet speed is divided.

you state before in student halls?

well Mr.strjms72 I was hoping to keep my definition of problem short but I may need to expand on that. I arrived at student halls a month ago...At first I did not experience problem with my connection speed(and to think that at first almost everyone were home sitting on their coms) and beside that even if the connection is divided I think many others would experience the same problem, get fed up with the slow buffering speed and just dc thus emproving others speed. But the speed was not changing a bit. Ok it may be a problem with the halls but maybe not and in that case this is the reason I asked help from this forum(again)...

btw I reinstalled modem and lan drivers on my laptop. But I havent tried it that much yet to tell the difference.

Download, and install TCP Optimizer:
Open it, and put a checkmark in Optimal Settings. Click Apply changes button.
Restart computer, and see if it helped.
