U430 touch - browsing very slow

2014-07-06, 15:59 PM

U430 with Windows 8.1 running very slow on IE11.   Web pages partially load and display some of the page and/or web page just grinds on and on in load mode.  Am constantly refreshing pages to get them to load OR having to back out of the website completely and try again and sometimes, yet again.  Have had this unit for approx 8 weeks and want to love it but frustrated. FYI, did the BIOS update a couple of weeks ago.

Solved! See the solution

What network card are you using, wifi or ethernet? What is the speed indicated in the connection icon in the taskbar?

Thanks. I suspect that the 54 mbps is too low for your wifi card. Can you take a look at device manager and determine what wifi card is installed in your unit? You may also have to examine your router if it is properly match with your wifi card.

wifi card is Intel wireless N7260.  I think you are probably right on re: the modem/router setup.  It is approx 8 years old...way old.  I will begin with purchasing a new one this week and also check on internet speed options with my ISP. I know a ittle about comptuers but not enough!  Thanks so much for your help.

Ok. Glad you got it right. Just see to it that the router and modem supports channel bonding since your wifi card is capable of that.
