    internet stalling or very slow immediatly after resume fro

    new install of windows 8 pro 64 bit, 4 gigs ram 500 gig hard drive 7200 rpm sata. amd a4-3400 processor,
    my problem is when my pc resumes from screen saver and I log in, my internet is extremely slow to go to web sites, it just sits there waiting to go, it does this for about 5 mins then all speed resumes great on all web browsers. it only does this for 5 mins after a resume from screen saver.
    I know it is not my speed I have 50 Mps download and 5 up with roadrunner.
    anyone else experience this issue and how to fix it?

    I'm not sure why network connection would be lagging after resuming from sleep but it may have to do with the power saving feature.

    Have you tried turning off the power saving feature by going into the properties of the network adaptor, Device Manager>Network adaptors>Properties then to the Power management tab, uncheck the power saver there.

    There are also some adjustments for the network adaptor in Device Manager>Power Options>Change Advanced Power Settings, from there you can try different levels of power saving to see which ones work best for you.
