Can someone assist me in determining what’s causing my connection to be so slow?
It’s not my cable internet connection, it’s the router.
I have Content Blocking enabled to block Remote Access, Peer to Peer connections, and a few other things. I’m also blocking File Upload sites, Porn, and File Transfer sites.
I added domain exceptions that I visit regularly like YouTube, Hangouts, Vimeo, and a few other sites I frequent.
I also have intrusion detection checked.
Are any of these things causing my connection to drag? Just watching a YouTube video or doing a Hangouts video call freezes up, and makes a tone like there’s congestion or the connection is struggling with bandwidth. This happens even when I have only one tab or application running. I don’t have other things connected to the router. I’m not broadcasting the SSID, and I have a solid admin password and WiFi password. I have also disable remote access via InControl
Any help is appreciated. I am using Verizon Fios Internet into the Router - WAN - wireless.
