Intermittent Internet Slowness
Posted on 2006-03-25
I have a computer connected to the Internet via a wireless router.
Every now and then, via Internet Explorer, I click on something and nothing happens for a long time. Other times it's immediate. Regardless, the speed always seems to be 11 Mbps and the strength is listed as "excellent".
I've found that, if I click on a link and there's a big delay, then I just click on it again and I get to the linked page immediately. I often find this re-pressing a button or refreshing a page.
When I use Remote Desktop connection on this computer to reach another computer, it disconnects now and then because the connection is so poor.
I brought in a laptop and connected via wireless just as with the PC (to see if it would have the same problem). However, it didn't have a problem at all.
Any ideas how to troubleshoot this?
Thanks in advance,
