Even www.edugeek.net ping says request timed out even though I'm on the edugeek website on this machine what on earth!
Those answers help and eliminate a lot of possibilities.
I presume any other machines inside the network ping edugeek/external fine?
Another test to try, copy a large file (1gb ideally) onto a usb stick, copy the file to a working machines hard disk and note the time (the machines should be ideally the same model) then repeat on the borked machine. Just curious if its something motherboard/system driver related.
Please someone help me, I recommended this laptop to her it was the new Dell XPS machines as it was the fastest computer I could find and I feel as if it's my fault it's going wrong she doesn't look to please either *sigh*
Ah thanks mate will give it a go all the other machines are pinging fine and the other machines are getting a good result in speed test
Right next step, get a bootable linux iso and see if ping works then using wired.
Ok will do sorry about slow reply the boss came in and started talking to me for an hour -.-
OMG! So the ping is our broadband team blocking filtered machines and other which are unfiltered are fine and can ping so the server can ping! You learn something new everyday. Still doesn't explain why this machine is loading webpages dead slow though. I thought I was onto something there!!
