    Net Slowing Down Any?

    Anybody notice this site is taking a long time to load when changing pages? When I say long time, I'm not meaning more than say 10 seconds usually to switch pages. But that's a long time based on my inner clock. I've noticed a general slow down of various sites, which suggests to me the powers that be are subdividing the lines that carry the signals to support more people using them. Not many other sites are slow as this, but they are all lagging a bit more than usual. And they all started slowing about the same date. (Don't ask me - a month or two? Perhaps more?)

    Has anyone been experiencing slow downs? Know why?

    No, my pages load pretty quickly. No change here!

    Right. There's something between you and me that is slowing my signal overseas in both directions. Thanks.

    Hi D Akey,

    Generally slower for me monday thru thrusday, I don't know, 'bandwidth demand? Have you recently updated your browser? Computer at work has slowed dramatically since IE/10 update was installed...older computer/slower cpu, it's just not handling the IE update. Any new Internet 'ADDONS' recently installed by you? dump the one's that you positively don't need!
    You can also test your Internet connection bandwidth for all parts of the world, we have to sometimes check it at work...'haven't a clue how to do it! There May be a site or software download on the net?
    Hope you sort it out,

    D Akey - Mine is fine. You can try a basic test if you have windows, by going to the start button and in the run box type cmd. Click on the cmd application and a black box will pop up.

    Type in ping and hit enter. You should see a reply like below.
    The important bit is the time=***ms showing the time it takes for each packet to reach and return from the artrage server. try multiple sites like and Yahoo etc to make a comparison.

    You can also try tracert command like below. This shows the latency in each link of the network. Yours will look totally different to mine as it is using a totally different path.

    And don't forget if you are connecting to the net wirelessly that can become a bottle neck.
    Have you tried using a different channel on your router? Have you moved stuff around at home? Have you any Bluetooth devises? Have your neighbors!
    Are other wireless networks broadcasting on the same channel as your wifi?
    The list of possibilities is quite big…
