October 29, 2005When I get on CTW on my PC it seems to run ok, considering it's dial-up it runs fairly smoothly. When I'm on on my laptop with T1 it runs so slow and doesn't even keep up with my mouse movement, everytime I move the mouse I have to wait for it to "catch up" to where I'm pointing before I can click anything. Does anyone have any ideas on what's different or what I can do?
October 29, 2005Is this just on CTW, when you're using your web browser, or when you're doing anything?
October 29, 2005CTW runs alot slower than my other websites i go to too, een freezez the computer soemtimes.
October 29, 2005Where are you at when you are using T1? There is a problem with CTW between WWW2 and WWW... so if you are using your laptop on a WWW2 server, it will result in slow performance..... there is really no other reason for the slowness on your end... your connection is fast enough... but it is still as slow as the websites servers (which CTW's are really slow sometimes... too much on too small of a sever)... try going to PcPitStop and running a scan for bandwidth.
October 29, 2005It's only when I'm on CTW. No other site I go to has problems. I'm not sure about what server it is either?
October 30, 2005A few more questions for you... when you are on the t1, are you wireless or wired.. and second were are on the t1.. work, school.... If you are at school (university) you are probably on internet2(WWW2)...regardless I think the problem lays in the CTW server being over accessed and it is slowing everything else down... no way really to test this unless you try different times to access the site, when the demand is down (like 3:35am when I do...j/k)
October 30, 2005I'm wired and at school, in the fraternity house. Also one things that's weird is it takes forever to load pages and everytime I go to a topic or back to the active topics I have to wait for it to load and like the screen goes gray and then scrolls down. It's really hard to explain what it does.
October 30, 2005I had the exact same problem. It turned out to be my graphics card driver. Check if there is an update for it. It worked for me.
October 30, 2005I have the same issues on all 3 computers I post from. Due to this problem, I am mainly a lurker. To post a single response often takes 5 minutes to post and get back to the active topics list... At work, I am hard wired DSL. At home, one computer is hard wired Comcast Cable, and the laptop is woreless Comcast Cable...
It is very frustrating to try to read threads. It takes about 15 seconds just to scroll down to the next 3 posts in any given topic...
CTW is the ONLY site I have this problem with... Other boards and internet sites are lightening quick...
Abybody else with any ideas?
October 31, 2005I can't get on CTW using Internet Explorer. I have to use Mozilla.
