Windows 10: terrible internet connection time

    terrible internet connection time


    Download Speed 5-20 Mbps; CPU < 20%; Memory < 75%; Win 10; anti-virus internet protection off; no viruses found; trouble shooter does not find any connection problems; connecting to links dreadful often taking over 10 minutes

    For starters, change DNS servers, then try CCleaner to clean browser/DNS cache and such and then TCP Optimizer.

    After cache clearance, perhaps you have some basic IP configuration problems -

    Admin command prompt :

    ipconfig /flushdns

    ipconfig /release

    ipconfig /renew

    Which Browser(s) are used?

    Any Proxies set? - if not, Control Panel/internet options/connections/LAN settings/Automatically detect settings is checked - uncheck!

    Ad blockers? turn off and see if speed changes - not supposed to discuss ad blocking on these forums. Google "banners parasites cookies" for some information.

    Only ran optimizer; am in location that chooses the web access and have no ability to change DNS server; had cleaned browser cache recently.
    That said, it was a frightening experience. After the reboot a black screen came up with a message that I didn't have the Dell power adapter; I did. after several tries had all its cables unplugged and replugged again. Finally, I'm back in.
    I once had a teacher who said it doesn't matter how ugly the process is so long as the result is beautiful. It looks like this is another example. My connection speed is like greased lightening.
    Thank you.
