So my internet connection is running slow even though I have "high speed internet". My ping is usually 10-20 ms which I'm told is good. I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and recently did a factory reset. So whats the deal??!

Your profile states that you are an electrician. If that is the case, you should know that nobody is going to be able to help you with the little information you have gave us.

Are you using a wireless router or hardwired connection? Have you tried a different browser?

I would first go from the modem directly to the laptop. I would also try another computer and see if that is better

The laptop is 5 years old. The cable between the netgear switch and my laptop is fine. I tested it
Is there anything else connected to the switch?

I'm with Dennis, connect directly to the modem and see what you get.

Also, how old is the modem?

I was having a problem with my connection a few months back. It would work great for a few minutes then would drop the connection. Turned out to be the modem.
Modem is brand new and my xbox connection is great. I think my POS dell laptop just needs to be replaced. Thanks for replies
