The computer has become an indispensable part of our lives. Who doesn’t like getting immersed in the virtual world of entertainment and information, that is, obviously the Internet? By having access to the Internet, we get to know a lot of useful stuff, latest happenings from all around the world, and do a lot of exciting online activities. However, one annoying thing that most people complain is the slow Internet connection. When it comes to online activities, it is pretty clear that speed is of preponderant importance. Let me now try and bring out some useful tips that will help you speed up your Internet connection.
The first need that you can do is to check for the fastest Internet connection provider in your area. Preferably go for an Internet connection that works on a fiber-optic network technology. You may opt for any of the reliable Internet services like FiOS Internet.
They are normally faster than the DSL and Dial up connections. So this is probably one thing that you can think about.
Now you may try and refresh and clear up a few things on your PC. Run the disk defragment process, scan the disks, run your antivirus software and get rid of the virus and malware from your system. Then try to empty the unnecessary space in your system by deleting the unwanted old files and folders and also the temporary files. Then clear the recycle bin. Another important thing you need to do is to shift maximum number of files and folders from the C drive to any other drive. This is because less space in the C disc will directly affect the system’s working speed. Ideally, make sure that your C drive has space that is about twice that of the RAM memory or little more than that. The main purpose of the above steps is to ensure that your system works at its maximum speed. Once the system speed is boosted it ultimately results in a quick Internet connection. And you may try using the free PC optimizer tools such as Registry cleaner or wise disk cleaner.
Another thing that you can do to boost up your computer speed is to check for multiple computer connections on the same network. When all the systems share the common Internet connection in a network it is highly possible that the speed may drop.
If your RAM is old, then you may have to upgrade it with a new RAM of more memory space. And check if your system hard disk needs to be upgraded or not. In addition to the above steps, you should also keep in mind that any solid device connected to your systems that carry data will get heated up over a period of time and lose its efficiency. In such case, you have to replace the old cable wires of your modem with the new ones.
Another thing that you can do on-the-go while working on your system is to press the keys ctrl, Alt, and Del. Once you do that, you will see the task manager popping up. With this bar, you can view the operations/tasks are currently running and the memory they consume for their operation. If there is any unnecessary task running then you may click on it and give ‘End Task’. This will end the process and ultimately save more memory space for your RAM.
Furthermore, you may call up your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and check with them about the standard and quality of your Internet connection. If it is substandard then you can get a professional come to your home and fix it up for you.
