Picked up this comp about a month ago and tested it before buying. Everything seemed to move along well enough online until I brought it home. I assumed the ball rolling was either due to the slow HD or the spotty stock network card giving me an inconsistent wireless signal. I've since updated the HD to an SSD and normal programs and bootup fly now, but online still the same dilemna. Well tonight I ran a 30' Cat6 cable to the router and my speed became consistent and right at about 35-40mb download 5mb upload (what I'm paying for via Century Link fiber). However I'm still getting the rotating beach ball when online? Is there something that's causing this possibly? I'm not even sure what to test at this point.
