Windows® 7 Network Optimization
What are the ways to optimize the network connection in Windows 7?
Even you have a Iast Internet connection your computer might get slow at the time of using the network. The kind of Internet connection you employ is the most significant factor in deciding your connection speed. Two of the most common causes of reduced Internet performance are spyware and viruses. Spyware could decelerate your computer by interfering with your browser and control your Internet connection. The health of the system is another factor that affects the Internet connection. Browser add-ons are programs, like multimedia add-ons, search bars, or other programs that generally appear on the browser's toolbar. However, some add-ons could affect the Internet connection Your Internet connection speed could also be influenced by add-on programs, the quantity of memory the system has, hard disk space and form, and the programs which are at work. The three general ways to attach to the Internet from home are dial-up, DSL, and cable.
The following are the ways to optimize the Internet connection in Windows 7:
- Use fastest modem
- Check the phone line
- Employ suitable security software
Use fastest modem
If you have a dial-up connection, there are a number of good methods for optimizing your Internet speed. Firstly use the best ever modem you have. The fastest modem could send and obtain information at a rate of 56 kilobits per second (Kbps). Usually you could not get a full 56 Kbps speed most of the time, but using a good phone line, you could reach at least 45–50 Kbps. So you have to select a fastest modem.
Check the phone line
Ensure that your phone line is in good condition. If the telephone wiring is old or failing, you might be disturbed with stray signals or cross talk from other phone lines. These issues could slow your Internet connection as the modem has to send the same information over and over till it is transmitted without disruption. You need to check your telephone wires o make sure that they are not broken, frayed, or warped around telephone cables. If you find any crackling in your phones, you need to contact your phone provider and make them check the lines inside and outside your home to confirm they are in fine condition.
Spyware, viruses and malwares are important reasons for issues in the network. So in order to optimize the network you have to use suitable security software in the computer. Only install efficient and updated security software. If not you could not get the expected result.
