my internet is running really slow and alot of pages wont load at all. could it be because there are two laptops running off one connection? my partner is currently playing online poker i assume that would take up alot of it?

You have not given any details on what kind of internet connection you use, nor on how your LAN is configured.
eg, do you use a router or are you using ICS.
Are you on dialup, cable/DSL or wireless modem?

Simple test. Ask your friend to log out of the poker site and see if your performance improves.

sorry im a bit of a novis when it comes to stuff like this. its a wireless connection. from a router? my partner came off his laptop all together. shut it down and mine is still refusing to load websites. i did a disc clean up, defragged, got rid of programs i no longer need and did a full system scan for viruses or bugs and nothing. i dont know what else to do.

When running on wireless the signal strength can be one cause of slow performance. How far from the router is your system and is there anything in the vicinity that could interfere with the signal, such as solid walls, cordless telephones etc?

Go to the command prompt...

- Start
- Select Run
- Type CMD

Then type the following commands...

IPCONFIG/ALL > Config.txt
PING YAHOO.COM -n 25 > Ping.txt
NETSTAT > Ports.txt

Then goto Notepad or your favorite editor. Open these files. They should be located on your "C:\Documents and Settings\yourname" directory.
