    Have you tried the TCP Optimizer? It may repair/tweak/improve some issues like that, just set the "optimal" settings. I also agree with Norm that it could be your laptop's network adapter, or the...

    DHCP should be provided by only one device on the LAN, in your case the cable modem/gateway.

    Hi Debbie.

    Florida just hit 100k Covid-19 cases, 3.2k deaths. It was down to 4-500 new cases per day in May, but since reopening it has been climbing, it is now up to 3-4,000 new cases per day.
