    Hey we should be happy we're still around and aviating, or flying, you know, that airplane thing.

    I think so, AFAIK there's no "ping" equivalent available to a mere user of iOS.

    No one else is complaining about slow speeds on POA...

    Had some kind of Atari, probably 2600. Used the TRS 80 in college, "trash 80" I think they called it.

    For being slow, it sure went off the rails pretty darn fast.

    Yep.

    I'll try rebooting the router tomorrow. Maybe some table got boogered.

    Have at it. Worst they can do is ban you. Are you afraid of a ban?

    What would happen if you cleared your temp folder? Reverted to an earlier save? Or go to your history and click POA from when it was fast.

    Our high school math department had a Commodore PET. I spent way too many hours playing on that thing.

    What “table” would that be?

    (Smacks head into desk... and is suddenly very glad he has Jr. Sysadmin coming back from vacation soon to deal with end users who believe crap like this... knows he would go full BOFH on the office if Jr. Sysadmin was gone more than three weeks, ever.)

    You're not using internet explorer...thats the problem.
    It crashes so fast, you won't realize PoA is slow.

    Yes this is on the right track. If that doesn't work try these:

    Disable all browser extensions.

    Download and try another browser such as Palemoon.

    If it's slow with all browsers:

    Clean all temp files.

    Have you added any software? If so uninstall and revert to an earlier restore point. Uninstall latest windows updates.

    If you are running malwarebytes uninstall it.

    I would think if these were the problem, you would be having other symptoms such as other programs being laggy or malfunctioning. Can you think of anything like that going on?

    If it's ONLY the PoA site and only that one machine and more than one browser I would think it's got to be some temp file associated with that site.

    You need to troubleshoot to narrow whether it's the browser or the machine.

    DISCLAIMER: I am not a tech expert!! Question for tech experts: can a hardware failure at a point on the disk cause this sort of thing? Like a cached file that can't be erased?

    If his iPad thing is working the site fine and it's going through the wifi of that router are you saying the router therefore isn't the problem? Aside from the "table" question which I have no clue what either of you is talking about.

    Well that was helpful, Nate. Unexpected dickish answer from you, next time "no comment" or no response is fine.

    Well, tell me this... did this magic “table clearing” work? And how does one view the contents of this “table” to see if it needs “cleaning”?

    Are router reboots significantly changing your web access speeds (and this is measured)?

    Someone is slamming the WiFi on the same channel with -10dB RSSI. My router is 10 feet over my head and it's about -55. Nearest house is at least 100' away. Interesting.

    -10 dB RSSI is massive. You should see a large dish or high gain yagi pointed at/through your house from next door to ever see that.

    I assume that’s 2.4 GHz... if all of your devices support 5Ghz and coverage is good inside the house, you may want to just dump the 2.4 altogether so devices don’t try to compete to be heard with whatever that is.

    If you need the 2.4 remember non-overlapping channels are only 1, 6, and 11... so move away from that crazy noise source.

    Are you seeing it in a list of signals like it’s a real AP, or with a spectrum analysis tool?

    Subject to other tests. Using Acrylic. Using the default channel 6. Yeah if it's really -10 here, I should just look around the neighborhood for glowing electric meters.Which is probably illegal anyway. Moving channels isn't going to make a lot of difference if it's really that high.

    I've not had problems with the speed of the site.
