  1. I bought a new laptop a few months ago, and ever since I bought it I struggled with this slow internet browsing, at first multiple sites wouldn't load up as fast as I wanted it to. would load up in 30 seconds, and sometimes it wouldn't load up at all. Sometimes it would be no data sent. This happens on certain sites. Some sites load up instantly, some doesn't. My IPod / my old HP laptop would run perfectly fine and better than this. Internet for gaming, downloading is perfectly fine.

    My laptop model is Hp pavilion m6-1035dx !
    Someone please help, much thanks is appreciated!!

    Typically, this is an issue with the DNS settings. The system will ask DNS#1 and wait for it to timeout before asking DNS#2.
    That delay makes browsing very akward/slow.

    Get a command prompt (start->run->cmd)
    1) find your DNS settings
    issue IPCONFIG /all
    look for
    DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . :
    (yes, I have three)

    2) try accessing each manually
    (notice these are from the (1) results)
    If any timeout, substitute or

    That is your ROUTER address and is very typically the one shown (lazy router configuration software).

    to find the TRUE DNS settings,
    • log into the router config page
    • log at the WAN side settings
    and you will find
    • the public IP address of your router as assigned by your ISP
    • the DNS settings giving to the router
    you can not change the first, but can change the latter
