Tips on how to speed up Internet connection

Speed Up Internet Connection

This day and age we are used to life at its top speed thanks to various means of instant communication. That’s why there are very few things that are more frustrating than slow Internet that can basically turn your life into a nightmare. Sometimes speeding up Internet is a simple question of upgrading your plan or changing your service provider.


However, sometimes even users who are paying for high speed Internet access can experience surprisingly slow Internet connection. Fortunately, there are ways to speed up Internet without having to change your ISP or buying a more powerful computer. Here are some tips on how to speed up your computer Internet connection without too much hassle.

1. Talk to your provider

First of all, call your service provider and check whether they are doing their job properly and delivering the service you are paying for. Or perhaps your package is outdated and the company will upgrade you to a better one either for free or for a small upgrade fee.

Keep in mind, though, that very few people are getting the top speed (remember the words “up to” in your contract?) because of distance exchange, congestion, and traffic shaping.


2. Find the browser that works for you

Most people still use Internet Explorer, even though it’s not the fastest browser out there. If you are an active Internet user, it would be a good idea to check out different browsers, like Chrome, Firefox, and Opera to see which one works best for your connection type and your hardware configuration. For example, Chrome is particularly good for computers that are low on RAM, as it’s not as memory hungry as Firefox and IE.


3. Tweak your router

If you are using a router, you can probably speed up Internet by adjusting the router settings. There are too many routers to give specific advice, but most routers can be tweaked to open up ports and boost your Internet speed. Just check the manual for things that can be done to improve performance or use Google to find answers for your particular router.

Before you do any tweaking, check whether you are close enough to the router when you use the Internet. Being too far away from it can make the connection really slow and unstable.

Another thing you should try before changing any settings is to restart your router. Sometimes this simple action can dramatically speed up your Internet connection.


4. Prevent unauthorized access

If you are using wireless Internet connection, make sure that you are not sharing it with the whole neighbourhood. The more people use your connection, the slower it is for you. So at the very least set up a WEP password to stop unauthorised users from using your Internet connection. Or if your hardware is compatible, set up WPA encryption.


5. Control your bandwidth usage

There are many applications that will use your bandwidth in the background, like Windows Update, Windows Live Messenger, Skype, Real player, Adobe Reader updates, and other similar software. Most of them usually start automatically when you log on to Windows and connect to the Internet as soon as there is a connection. This means that these programs use your bandwidth when you are not actually using them.

Most of these applications can be configured not to start on Windows log-on or to at least ask permission to connect to the Internet. If you are not sure which programs are secretly using your bandwidth, you can use a free tool called Auslogics Task Manager. With the help of this program you can track which applications and processes are consuming your network traffic.

If your Internet connection speed dropped all of a sudden for no apparent reason, check your computer for malware and spyware. Malicious software often uses your Internet connection to send information to its developers.


6. Perform some basic PC maintenance

If your computer is slow, it doesn’t matter how fast your Internet connection is – everything will be slow because you computer can’t cope. The answer to that is to keep your computer in good shape and perform regular maintenance like disk cleanup and defrag, registry repair, and other tasks like monitoring your startup items and optimizing Windows services. This way you will not only speed up computer performance, but also speed up your Internet connection.

There are many tools that will help you do the job, from the Windows built-in ones to complete PC optimization suites like Auslogics BoostSpeed that offers one-click maintenance and advanced tools to improve computer performance even more. It also has a tool called Internet Optimizer that will help you optimize your Internet connection for maximum speed.

    Hi Lizzy,
    I appreciate the advise but tell me something: how am I supposed to speak to my service providers (Tata Photon, India) who seem to behave as if helping people is being associated with our (late lamented) friend – the right honorable Adolf Hitler? You may not believe me, but I haven’t been able to change my pw since I have subscribed to it… Please explain to me in plain speak as to how I’m supposed to tweak my router, perform basic pc maint and control bandwidth use.

    Love you,
    I. Abbasi (my real name)

    Hi Abbasi,

    thanks for reading the article and leaving a comment. I’m sorry that your ISP treats customers this way, but all I can recommend is that you keep calling them. As for tweaking your router, please read your router’s user manual. All routers are different and I can’t give any specific recommendations. Performing basic PC maintenance is easy – just read my other articles (like “A Comprehensive Guide to Speeding Up Computer Performance”) and follow the steps.

    I have problem about the internet speed before internet my company is so fast. After my company have IT manager control on internet so make internet so slow I know that internet slow by IT manager because he set permission router for all only computer by get Mac Address and Computer name set speed 256 byte per second before 10MB Per second.
    How can I hack to get speed 10MB the same before?
    I want get fast speed internet have software or anything that do it.

    Hi Dero,

    I’m afraid you can’t do much – a dial-up connection is the slowest connection available. Your best bet is to upgrade your service, if it’s possible in your area.

    what does traduce to put 20% that Windows back ground application can’t use more than 20% of the bandwdith, or any application connected or using Internet can’t use more than 20%?
    What about if I want to have an specific applicacion using 100% or 90% (example an online game), how can I do that?

  • M
    November 11, 2011 @04:51 am

    Hey Liz,

    I live by a lake, in a tiny neighborhood, so our Wi-fi internet is as slow as heck (Example: It takes about 1 hour to download a 100 MB file)

    Do you know any internet programs or quick and easy tricks to improve the speed of my internet? I need all the help I can get!!!

    sorry to hear your Internet is slow. Unfortunately, I don’t think there is much you can do to improve the speed. What you really need is a faster and more reliable connection.

    January 7, 2012 @08:00 pm

    Hi lizzy……I’m trying to say that I’m Using A dial up network,,,,that’s TATA Photon + in India…….It’s the slowest one but I think there is a modification for that crap :-
    1> start
    2> type ncpa.cpl
    3> select ur network
    4> go to properties
    5> click configure and select like eg- if it is written 115200 slect 921600
    and if it is written 460800 select 921600
    Still it doen’t works do the same process by going in view network connection in start menu in windows 7 or vista
    An another tweak is :-
    1> start
    2> type ncpa.cpl
    3> select ur network
    4> go to properties
    5> select networking tab
    6> then select the ticked one and go to properties
    7> click at obtain the DNs server adresses
    8> at preferred DNS server type
    9> at alternete DNS server type
    10> now click ok to the end and disconnect and connect again…MIRACLE!!!!!!

    this thing is called open DNS.

    we are in the process in changing from dial-up to high-speed. What do I have to do to change my email address to another provider? will I lose any saved emails on my dial-up email account when I cancel my dial-up and change over to high -speed?

    February 20, 2012 @11:47 am

    Hi Susan,

    I think the best thing to do is ask your current provider. But if you want to avoid this issue in the future, simply use Gmail and not the email address you get from you ISP. This is the best way to make sure your email doesn’t get cancelled if you change your service provider.

    I only get between 0.20 and 0.30. Ive been calling my isp to see if they could fix it, but every time they come, they just sit down at my computer and pretend they are working on it. I think that’s what they do, because my internet connection is always at the same speed, they have been here already 3 times.

    shreyansh raj,
    if your computers configuration is not good so, you have to change your computer. you have to upgrade your ram, mother board and processor.
    & if the problem is not solve so, you have to change your mts netsetter.

    September 24, 2012 @03:58 pm

    I did a speedtest and the results were download speed 0.34Mpbs and upload speed 0.48Mbps. I have been told by my provider (Optusnet) that my line is good and that my problem must be the socket in the house but they can’t help with that, I have 3 potential phone sockets but they all come back with the same speeds.

    My question is, who do I contact to fix this problem, Telstra or a maintenance guy or can I fix this myself?

    nice article. but i have suggestion for you. can you make an article to explain MORE what is MTU, TCP optimize, and others parameter that can affect to speed our internet connection ?

    because i saw on your application in manual optimation many parameter that we can adjust manually but we dont know what it’s for. like max MTU, max dup ack, etc even there are some short explanation about it in your application.

    will be very nice if you would make article with some example on how to get the best speed by manually adjust that setting.

    So we have a pretty fast internet speed like 3mb/sec but we also have a download limit.
    This time we went over the download limit and our speed went from 3mb to 20-25kb/sec. We asked our provider how to get it back to normal and they told us we have to wait till next month so they can reset it.
    Now my question is how do i speed it up back to normal or atleast 100 kb’s faster because we cant event watch youtube videos on lowest quality(240p) it takes like 10min to load a 3m video…

    This is a 5 year old article but still i am coping with the problems of a slow internet user. because i cannot pay much and afford 3G internet.
    I have low internet demands. I use mobile websites to access basic websites. I use whatsapp, and get freaked by the bandwidth consumption due to it. and if you joined a group you should be ready for the way it taxes your pocket.
    when i browse the internet websites through my pc, the speeds are low. what i have learnt in the years is that only money can bring your good speed nothing else. you do whatever tweaks on your machine, wont help until you shed some money. I think when you download a 2Mb website of facebook just to check your messages, it is pretty stupid, but thats to me. i do by browsing it on mobile version website which uses lesser data in comparison. so it is the way with which you browse to get internet.
    The main thing is with youtube videos but i only see youtube videos once they are highlighted by the media (otherwise its not possible to see the millions of youtube videos all together even for a regular viewer) so why should you shed money for internet? the answer again comes back to your internet usage. some people will find the pc website of facebook easier and entertaining, some people will find the basic text only version of fb better… it is the way you browse your internet is what gives you speed. tweaks will give only minuet or negligible effect to speed.

    Hi thanks for the tip(s). Hoever, try as I may, and I have tried various open source DNS servers, but my internet speed is still very slow. My pc desktop is in top condition, and I don’t really want to fiddle too much with this. I was thinking of getting more RAM, perhaps this might give me more speed. As of now, my internet speed is scraping the bottom of the barrel. I communicated with my ISP, but I got fobbed off with the comment- “talk to technical support”. I started looking at whatever information is available in the internet, and YouTube, but I still have a very slow internet. What can I do?

    I believe that your statement is true. I personally live in India, and honestly, even if you were kidding, this country does have a record of exaggeration while offering High-Speed internet. I live in an awesome area of India (not Delhi, mind you. Except hotels, you can’t actually live somewhere properly), close to an NTPC Plant with almost all facilities except high speed Internet.

    I use Airtel Dial-up/Mobile connection, and I just bought a 3G Internet Pack, but neither a 3G network comes up, nor it is faster than 2G which I have been using for the past 3 months. And when I try to manually connect to a network, then I see one 3G and two 2G networks come up (out of 2G networks: GSM & EDGE, and 3G networks: HSPA and UTMS) and it can’t connect to UTMS (HSPA was long gone, disappeared 2 years ago in our area). I am at serious loss right now (I shouldn’t have paid for the f***ing 3G network, f*** you, Airtel and f*** you, Indian ISP!)

    Sorry. Had to vent. (sighs) I hate these craziness sometimes.

    Recently There was a severe thunder storm that the lightening struck next to our house so the phone and DSL were out of service for two days. When the TDS phone and internet provider repaired it they had to rewire the line from our house to the telephone pole across the street. NOW, our service is dial up speed at times when we are suppose to have up to 15mg, the most we use to have was 8 or 9 which was fine for the Netflix or other streaming programs. NOW, they only spin…and so they do not work. This occurs at around 6pm and lasts until after midnight. The company tells me the capacity is overloaded and they do have an ETA on the solution to that problem, YET, my question is why did this just begin after repairing my outage of two days this month from the storm?? I had no problem before the repair to the storm damage. I insist it is something they can put back the way that it was before but I do not know what that part is exactly…do YOU have any ideas or suggestions? I am being shut out and told that I will not have internet service from 6pm until early in the morning…but I must pay the full price!
    Please Help..if you can. Thank you
