Facing very strange problem, so seeking help.

My BSNL 3G connection is not working well with Win-7 loaded desktop PC. In first place it takes 15-20 seconds just to open GOOGLE search page and experience with attempt to open DFI and others is just too horrible, it is taking more than 1 mint at minimum. In sharp contrast this connection works extremely well with XP SP-2 loaded laptop and gives 1 mbps download speed.

Configuration: Desktop
CPU - Pentium D
RAM - 1GB
Motherboard - Intel DG41RQi
OS - Window 7 ultimate

Thanks and regards
Rahul

May be you need to update the drivers for 3G connections. Check the USB manufacturer's website for Windows 7 specific drivers or updates. That might solve the problem.

Thanks Daredevil.

Hey Raghavi..I think it will be waste to call 'CC' as same connection is working extremely well with my laptop loaded with XP SP-2..... BTW are you using 3G modem?

First of all your RAM is too less for a Windows 7 . You need atleast 2 GB in order to make it work properly.
Also let me know your browser and its version . 1 GB is minimum requiremt for Windows 7 .

few steps:
Switch off and on wireless router/modem
Check if the line is connected via filter
Check if phone line with 2.8 MHz frequency codeless not in use while browsing net via wireless.
Check your distance from router (depends on which router you are using)
Window 7 has no compatibility issues with 3G wireless routers.
Run diagnostics (open network and sharing centre)
Reinstall your software.

I don't use router. BSNL has provided me a HSDPA USB stick(named HUAWEI) type modem. It goes in slot like a pen drive.

Check for the drivers. As far as i know Windows7(unlike Linux) just provide you with basic drivers and function to with your hardware(USB, Moniter, Keyboard) for everything rest you need to drivers from vender. So check with your vender.
Consult this problem with BSNL, they will help you.
OR
To the extreme case(which is very rare) some past of hardware has gone bad(USB, modem).
Can you give your plan details as i also planning to buy one.

If your drivers are bad, then your internet wouldn't be working at all. (Windows will say, Software not installed correctly......)
Since you're saying your internet WORKS, There is no problem with the device, drivers, nor your computer (Pentium D, w/ 1 GB RAM is enough for Windows 7)

My only guess is your signal's strength (in your area)
or
Your browser.---Which browser do you use?

Rahul, you'll have to get the BIOS drivers depending on the motherboard you have in your system. Get it from your PC manufacturer. They will also point you to the location where you can find updated drivers.

Rahul, unless you know anything about BIOS flashing, don't try it yourself. If if don't flash it properly, your motherboard will be irreversibly destroyed. You'd best take it to a computer store for the upgrade.
