Windows 7 Home Premium slow downloads RRS feed

  • Question

  • Download speed on my new Windows 7 Home Premium computer is 4 times slower than my other computer on the same home wireless network.  How do I fix this?  Web pages load very very slowly.  Windows Firewall is on.   I run AVG Free which does not have a firewall.

  • The first place is with your hardware, is it all win 7 gear or is it older gear?

    If it is supported have you applied the lastest firmware / drivers??

    Router / network card(s)

    Help us Help you by providing info on the devices.

  • Hi Vail,


    Besides updating the router firmware and network card driver, I also would like to suggest you update the BIOS and the motherboard drivers.


    After that, you may test the issue in Safe Mode with Networking and Clean Boot.


    What’s the result?
