Sounds like you might have some spyware slowing things down a bit. Spyware can slow down your connection to the internet too.

I'd download Spybot Search & Destroy and run a scan to see if it detects anything.

I might also try deleting your temporary internet files with something like CCleaner.

My internet use to do that too, I would just unplug/reset my router and modem and it would fix it.

Default Find out which application is slowing your internet connection

Hello How2! Probably there are some programs running in the background of your computer causing your browsing expereince to lag. I do recommend you to download TCPView in order to detect such programs. After detecting, you can simply close those programs. This will be a useful article for you: http://darktips.com/find-out-which-a...et-connection/
