  3. opening internet browser so slow

    I've try first 2 of the above mentioned. But nothing change. My internet browsing is still so slow. Might take 3 to 5 minutes to open and some website seems won't open. Will resetting BIOS erase my other applications installed?

    Does it because of I have more than 1 antivirus? Mc Afee, IObit

    There could be a number of factors at play here.

    Are you on Wifi?
    How far away is your computer from the router? How old is the house and how large is it?

    If the house is not too old may I recommend powerline adaptors. I am using powerline 1200 adaptors with 3 gigabit ethernet ports.

    This result was taken just now::

  6. Do a ping test on various websites and see if you get good latencies

    Youtube servers on European connections are always going to be problematic. Especially on Virgin. You have great speeds and are obviously running on Fiber. Most likely the servers you are connecting to are behind a bad router or overloaded leg between you and them.

    Not much you can do when it comes to streaming media.

    YT has always been a bit of a pain on VM as they use their own cache servers for popular(?) YT content.

    To get around this you can block these cache servers at your router if it allows, there used to be a thread about this on VM forums.

    I block 62.252.170.140 through 62.252.170.187 TCP Port 80 I've no idea how current these are but I dont generally have YT probs and I'm on 20Mb.

    Also prob worth replacing VM's own DNS servers in your router for either openDNS or Google's.

    The issue still remains that Virgin like all other European and Asian Internet providers throttle their users connections. You can give them all of the speed that they want (user), but at the same time, keep them from being able to enjoy it.

    OldManGaming,

    I've seen several situations where bandwidth is available, but DNS servers are lagging. Netflix in particular uses rerequests on DNS to load balance their data. I'm curious if you use your ISP's DNS server? Try using the google servers (free) for DNS and see if you get better connections / throughput. (It made my Netflix 1,000% more reliable and faster).

    Slow DNS server response can look like slow bandwidth at the same time apps like Ookla's Speed Test show BLAZING fast speed..

    Give that a try and ping back here. *Wink

    Google Free DNS servers are:
    8.8.8.8
    8.8.4.4

  11. My buffer speed in YouTube has always been stuck at around 2200-2500 kbps. I'm using a 3mbps connection and should be getting any nearer than that.

    Try what's suggested above, if that doesn't work then it's not the problem on your side.
