Hello. I have a Dell Inspiron 3147, 2-in-1 lap top. I have had it for over a year and it have worked great. But in the past week it has all of the sudden become slow. I can't play games that require the internet very well. I tried refreshing my PC, but that didn't help any. I don't know enough about computers to know what IPv4 means, or if 72.2 Mbps is good or not. Any ideas on what is wrong, or what to try would be helpful. Thanks.
Here are some of my Wi-Fi Stats.
-IPv4 Connectivity: Internet
-IPv6 Connectivity: No Internet access
-Speed: 72.2 Mbps
Thanks for writing to us.
Have you tried doing a system restore which will give us a clear picture if its hardware or software related??
Simultaneously install the wireless drivers from support.euro.dell.com, then enter your service tag# and click on drivers and downloads , then the operating system install the same.
Let us know how it goes.
Have you tried updating the wireless drivers?
Also open CMD and type in the following
netsh winsock reset catalog
now press enter
now type again
netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
now press enter
restart the machine and check if its working.
Sorry, I got it to run as administrator. This is what it said word for word on Administrator : Command Prompt
Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

C:\WINDOWS\system32>netsh winsock reset catalog
Sucessfully reset the Winsock Catalog.
You must restart the computer in order to complete the reset.
C:\WINDOWS\system32>netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Restart the computer to complete this action.
After I restarted my computer, I still had slow internet (connection).
You are apparently using a wireless connection. The 72.2mb/sec is actually very good.
Have you tried a wired connection to see if there is any improvement?
What brand/model of modem do you have?
Nice to hear from you. As we see the access if denied to netsh.exe.
It might be the anti virus causing not allowing the reset. Which antivirus are you using, please stop/uninstall the antivirus and try the reset again .
Also please install the wireless drivers from below link
choose your operating system and go to networks and install the wireless drivers as per the adapter model.
Should you have any doubts about the card model , do PM us the system tag# by clicking on my name in blue and then select send a private message also provide your email address.
