    Extremely slow internet problem

    Alright, I'm getting tired of trying to fix my internet every week. It is extremely slow, and is really interfering with my homework, and starting to be a big nuisance in my life.

    Anyways, my internet wifi basically doesn't work. It says it's connected with 3 bars, yet whenever I try to go to a page it sits there spinning, attempting to load the page for 5 minutes. I have tried both internet explorer and chrome. The wireless should be in a static connection, so ports shouldn't be a problem.. Anyway possible solutions to this?

    I also can't log into the Modern Warfare servers on my PS3. Any solutions to this, or even an idea as to why it is doing this?

    Sorry, not being a jerk, just thought it was funny you mentioned homework then included your inability to play MW as well.

    Good luck to you, though!

    Could be many things, 1 problem, or an insane combination of problems. First, I would reset everything. Then I would harass your provider first thing in the morning.

    Reset your modem/router.

    Go to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 if you have that router inside your apartment/house.

    See if you have an IP address. Start Menu - Run - CMD - ipconfig. See if it comes back with a valid ip.

    I'm guessing by location (Ames) and the fact that he's a student means he's using ICS in Ames.

    In which case the solution is to just suck it up and take it. It's not getting better.

    Ever.

    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.
