recently my old router died, so I bought the new one. I connected it to my PC, entered my ISP information. It's working, but kinda slowly. My ISP speed used to be 10MB/s, but now I'm downloading torrents only with 1MB/s. Task manager shows that network is used by 10% since I have my adapers speed and duplex set to auto negotation. Do you have any ideas how to fix this?
EDIT: I use cable connection.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

When you have a new issue, please start a new thread. We deal with issues in separate threads, makes it much easier to keep things straight.
First think I'd try for the slow router speed is to change the MTU in the WAN configuration section of the router to 1492, see if that helps the issue.
Hello all I have a really strange problem which has kept me scratching my head for quite a time I ve recently bought a G MBit sec DC-HSPA connection with a ZTE MF Modem and a Dovado GN router When I connect the modem directly to the computer I get around - MBit s which is great and acceptable Problem is when I connect through the router I get max Mbit sec Connected via ethernet cable or Wireless n b g n gives the same low speed results I have used the same APN bredband tre se in my router as is Slow Internet Through Speed Router on the modem I have upgraded to the latest firmwares on the Router latest firmware - I have swaped my modem to another one to the Huawei E latest firmware I have swaped my Router to another Dovado GN and updated Slow Internet Speed Through Router to the latest firmware The modem is placed meters away from the router to reduce interference I have removed all my anti-virus and firewalls and I believe the router has no firewall and prior to that did a virus check also with spyware doctor I changed the SIM card Slow Internet Speed Through Router and got another from the ISP no help The router s support says they recieve full speed like Mbit with the same hardware and firmware combination The G modem is exactly in the same place where I do the speed tests Speedtests done with speedtest net and bredbandskollen se Pings are quite high in both cases when doing tracerts but while doing the speedtests they are between ms and ms quite OK for me I have moved the config to another room same results I have tried using no security on Wifi and also disabling WiFi no help I have tested with differnet computers with totally diffferent configs Tracerts Direct Modem http img imageshack us img tracertmodem jpg Modem Router http img imageshack us img tracertrouter jpg WEB Statistics Direct Modem http img imageshack us img web modem jpg Modem Router http img imageshack us img web router jpg Speedguide Connection Test Direct Modem http img imageshack us img sgmodem jpg Modem Router http img imageshack us img speedguidetest jpg Please let me know if you need any other info I have tried to change all factors but nothing has helped The only thing that I m a bit suspicious on is the Router s firmware which is locked to the ISP but I can t think of anything else Maybe reading the tracerts and the reports could help nbsp
I can add that I guess the upload speed remains unaffected since it's below 3Mbit/sec in both cases
hey today i just bought an asus rt-n11 wireless router and i am getting really slow speed through it and drops out on the occasion, but direct connected i get alot more speed. i check for malware and back door garbage viruses etc. each day, im not too sure what this is or means please help. thanks
I would first uninstall or delete existing install. Reboot, and reinstall. Is it slow in both regular connect and Wireless? Or is only your wireless connect slow?
How do you determine it is slow? What are you using to test the connection speed?
did a cmd tracert <space> yahoo.com

Hi, I have the sierra aircard 875u, ATT 3g, Ijust bought the MBR 1000 router to network. THe speed on the host is actually faster than using the att communication manager. However, on the other computer itis really slow. Previously I had a linksys N router and managed to get internet sharing up and there was no speed issue. THe speed noted on the client is 54mbs, signal strength "very good" However this is extremely slow, slower than a dial up connection.
Is this typical, is there a way to speed it up? Could the problem be a slow network card?
Today i bought a router i plugged it in and set everything up as according to the instructions i put my pc on etc and started browsing the internet When i connected a second pc to the router both pcs internet began to run dreadfully Using Slow Dreadfully When Router Speed Internet slowly like so slow Dreadfully Slow Internet Speed When Using Router that it couldn t open webpages Now when i turned off the second PC and disconnected it from the internet totally the internet was still running slow on the original PC Dreadfully Slow Internet Speed When Using Router when it was working fine before I then tried rebooting everything and starting again but the slow internet speed remains While writing this message iam using a direct internet connection from the modem to the PC btw I made sure on both PCs all programs were closed except internet explorer and explorer exe aswell but this made no difference I am using a Mb ADSL connection and iam assured by my ISP that Mb is more than enough for two pcs to use between them Can anyone with experience of this problem help me out i don t really know what is going on here Thanks in advance nbsp
You might want to try a few ping tests:
1. Try and ping your router (note the speed in ms, should be 1)
2. Try and png your 2nd PC (should also be quite quick)
3. Try and ping a public ip address in your country (or a website, should be under 100)
4. Try and ping www.ireland.com
If you receive timeout errors or extremely high times (1000+ ms) then something is taking up your bandwidth perhaps. Let me know how u go & if need be i'll guide u further :grinthumb

I've purchased a DIR 600 router 3 months back, from the time I've purchased it i haven't been able to get it to work...
have been on long calls with the DIR tech team, but all in vein!!!
In the past 3 months I've got 3 replacements for the router.
The Issue is->Every time i connect to the internet via router the internet speed is painfully slow... google takes 15mins to open up
On the contrary when i connect directly using the Modem the internet speed is just fine and the internet line has no issues at all. (its a 2MBPS line)
Please help me get the router to work!!!
I have a question about my router, it's a Linksys 1900AC. It broadcasts 2.4 and 5. My laptop does not have a receiver to pick up the 5. My average download speed connected to 2.4 is around 10Mbp/s. I'm paying for 150Mbp/s.
If I connect my wife's laptop to 5, she gets a download speed of 122Mbp/s. My daughter's MacBook gets 138Mbp/s. If I connect theirs to 2.4, they get an average of 10Mbp/s. Do you think there is something wrong with the router and the 2.4 network? The download speed seems awfully slow to me.
I have tried changing channels 1,6,and 11
There is also a setting to pick
If I set it to N, my laptop will increase the download speed to about 30Mbp/s but I have older devices in the house so I keep it set to Mixed.
All the laptops were tested at a distance of about 35 ft.
Hi I'm Currently using a cable 10MB connection.
When i upgraded to 10MB connection MSN/WLM file transfers were extremly faster than ever before.
I got a wireless router
Netgear WGT624 108Mb 802.11g Wireless Cable/DSL Router
Now My PC isn't using a wireless connection, i have it wired.
Ethernet port of wireless router(1 of 4 ports)
Cable Modem vai Ethernet again.
cable modem to Internet.
Now since then i've had very bad transfers on some occassions you get the message saying "experiencing a slow connection click here to fine out why."
Usually inicates your behind a firewall.
I Don't have the firewall enabled on My wireless router, i use only Windows XP SP2 built in Firewall.
Does anyone no of a way i can fix MSN/WLM transfers?
You don't have to enable the firewall functionality in the router - it is inherent. You have to forward certain ports to your computer or enable UPnP to allow MSN active file transfers.
Not sure what is up here but we are having considerable problems with the internet.
Sometimes it will be fine although only getting a download speed of 3mbps and upload speed of 0.8mbps.
Other times it will take an age to open a google page and then just stop working altogether.
Sometimes turning off the router and waiting a minute or so will get us back to 3mbps but it doesn't always last. Everytime we turn laptop on we have to reset the router again. It as though there is too much going through it and it jamming up all the time. Is this possible or am I infected with something?
Operating system is Windows 7.

Many thanks for any help.
Have you tried using the TalkTalk Service Centre to see if there are any problems with your line or router?

I just bought a new modem to replace the one I am renting from Comcast (Motorola SB6120: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16825122009). I have been using an Encore (EHH-WI-G) 802.11g 54Mbps router.
I got everything hooked up last night and I noticed that when I was hooked up directly to the modem (ethernet), my internet was super fast. When I hooked up the wireless router and accessed the internet through it, my speed was noticeably slower. I used speedtest.net to see what my speeds were like:
Wired to modem: download 50+ Mbps (I don't know how in the world it read this high...I'm not even paying for these speeds from Comcast)
Wireless through router: download only around 5 Mbps
Can someone explain this to me? Is there a setting on my router that is restricting the speed in some way?
Have you tried downloading files in both wireless & wired what speed did u get in both modes.
Hi all i recently turned my second router into an Ethernet switch so that i could port forward a game. I am wondering if this will slow down my internet speed.

Technically speaking, yes. You've added another "hop" for the packets to have to travel to and from.
But it's not to any degree that you will notice.

Have you monitored your system with Windows Task Manager while downloading? If you determine Firefox is causing the problem, try safe mode and/or a new profile.

I found this helpful information on possible solutions, very familiar with errors on previous Microsoft operating systems. http://www.vandersluijs.nl/content/view/973/96/lang,enI uninstalled one of the suggested updates and so far it is fine, the update was only optional so no security threats. I think it has helped, not certain if it will be like a fresh install because windows is slower than it was two weeks ago. If 3 weeks is best windows can handle for being ready for a new install I may have to go back to Linux.

Hello, I just got this x360 Spectre i7 15.6" laptop and I love it, except for the speed at which things load on the browsers. I have high speed internet and ran a speed test and the speed is as it should. I've tried multiple browsers, and even though I have a very strong connection to my high speed internet, it takes forever to open up even a single website. I regularly wait anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes for the site to load. I just got this computer so haven't even saved any files or installed any programs onto it besides anti virus software. How can I resolve this very slow loading time? I'd hate to have to return this computer, but cannot stand to have to deal with these frustrations with a computer I paid $1300 for!! Please help! Katy

Recently moved house and had installed my internet today, the exact same setup.
Right now the only difference with this setup is that the router is plugged into my laptop, and if anything, it's closer to my computer than it was in the previous house.
My problem is that it randomly goes slow for short periods of time, or in games it lags like crazy. For example while watching youtube it'll shoot up the loading bar fast and then all of a sudden stop, and go really slowly, then back into fast speed over and over.
What can I do to resolve this?
Go to speedtest.net and see what your download and upload speeds are. Watching a youtube video will use less bandwidth than a game would.
You could also do a tracert to google.com to see if there are any high response times.

Hi, welcome to this forum!
Please visit this site to measure the real speed of the connection. When done please post the results here.
Internet providers (who gives you the internet) usually make an offer of x speed internet but they only guarantee you to get much less. So the speed might change up and down sometimes. If the internet is still very slow please read the details of your agreement with the internet provider. But first give us the speed results from that site

Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months.
The desktop in question uses Vista 32-bit and the Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter.
Welcome to TSG:
Run a speedtest here and see if the results are the same:
Then,boot up in safe mode with networking and see if the speed improves.Like so:
My motherboard has a usb 2.0 in it and when I put my thumbstick into it this ballon comes up saying High speed USB plugged into Slow speed usb hub how can I fix this?

I have an 8 port "wired" router from Linksys that I have been using in conjunction to a wireless access point which had been plugged into one of the open ports on the wired router. Lately I have been having connection issues with the WAP so I decided it may be time to upgrade. Not thinking about it, I picked up a new Linksys E1000 wiress router (as opposed to a WAP) and, after a lengthy support call with Linksys, got that up and running.
So I have operability for both wired and wireless devices, however I have noticed a substantial slow down on my wired devices. I also just upped the plan with my ISP to increase my bandwidth which I see on the wired PCs but not on the wireless which seem less. Would a WAP be faster than a wireless router by nature?
Any ideas? Thanks in advance
Have you made sure you have the latest firmware for the wireless router? If you updated the firmware be sure to reset it to factory default settings and reconfigure it.
What speeds do you get with a test such as speedtest.net with a connection to the wired router? With an ethernet connection to the wireless router? With a wireless connection?

ever since i installed this Linksys Wireless-G Braodband Router (model: WRT54G) my internet is slow and i notice a lot of my gun shots (video games) do not register... i asked my professor about this and he said it could be acting as a firewall, if this is true, how do i disable the firewall on the ROUTER
please help me quick... i have to know by tomorrow
because if this keeps up, we are taking this laptop and router back tomorrow, and tomorrow will be the 30th day of purchasing (30 day back)
What are the specs on the machine and what game are you playing?
Does the router speed (n300, n600 and so on) affect the strength of internet uploading?
I have a Linksys WRT54GL Router
Linksys WRT54GL Wireless Broadband Router 802.11b/g up to 54Mbps - Newegg.com
On the router itself and even on the store page, it claims that the router supports up to 54Mbps, however I am only getting up to ~37Mbps. When I plug my computer directly to my modem, then I do get my 50Mbps connection, so it is definitely a problem with the router
Is there anything I can do to get 50Mbps through the router or is it just false advertising?

Hi Monster, this is not false advertising, it's a number of factors that come into play, you could play with different channels to receive 50Mbps, it's all down to how far away you are and what's interfering with the connection, it's not false advertising because companies say "Up to 54Mbps" which basically means it's capable of this but you're most likely not going to get this.
i got this TP-LINK TL-WR641G and my computer is conected with wireless and there is another connected to it via an ethernet cable.
im on a 1.5Mb internet plan and my computer never downloads faster than a max of 30KB/s while the other goes in excess of 200KB/s...why would this be happening?
any help is appreciated.
also i can download a few things at the same time at 30KB/s each which adds to 60KB/s but nothing ever goes higher...
I have recently had my broadband speed increased from 'up to 50mbs' to 'up to 70 mbs'
Using the Speedtest app my ipad indeed clocks download speed at an average of 65-68mbs and an upload of around 5mbs which I am more than happy with, especially as it was a free upgrade.
When I ran the same test on my android devices however, although the upload speed was on a par with the ipad, they only achieved a download speed of around 35-40mbs, which is actually slower than the pre upgrade speed.
Is there a reason for such a radical differential in speed between the different devices/operating systems, particularly in view of the similar upload speeds?
Just for the record, devices are iPad Air/Hudl 2/HTC One X
This is from my last post moving to the next confusing problem My customer has computers hooked up to his router The customer recently got his line repaired and is hooked right up to his node directly outside his house Going right to his modem he gets mb Once he hooks up to his router all of his computers all get between mb to mb Here is the problem One of the computers is only getting mb to mb I have tried so much that its driving me nuts The computer is on windows bit The ethernet driver is a nvidia behind a Odd speed problem router nforce networking controller It currently has the most recent driver actually I have even found a win update I ve swapped different ethernet cables and get the same speed Ran a defrag check the disk for errors and looked for malware Cleared the startup and even attempted checking the speed in safe mode with no luck I m lost anyone have any ideas nbsp

Hello everyone, I had a question about connection speed and how its divided between your home devices. Now I know a speed test tells you how fast your network speed is but no speed test will tell how many mbp a single device is getting. So right now I have 26 Mbp and four devices connected how would it get divided ? And is there a way to test the speed of a single device ?
I just started with DSL from EarthLink says for speed remove better ISP router EL They re promising MB K download upload and the Speakeasy test site results were So I call EL and they tell me to remove my router I was using an SMC Barricade ABR just as a hardware firewall no other computers networked I am also using a sw firewall solution ISP says remove router for better speed ZoneAlarm EL specifies the DSL connection is for one computer only they make selling network solutions They send me to the wire test site There I get dl speed with the router but speed without the router Speakeasy does ISP says remove router for better speed not show an improvement The wire site notes What does this test actually measure This connection tests how fast your computer can load a Web page from the Wire Website It does not measure the speed of your ISP connection but rather the speed at which the page is received and appears in your browser Why do other quot bandwidth quot meters give different results Bandwidth does not always mean the same thing other meters measure how fast your connection is able to find a requested Website or how fast you can send and receive email I think I notice an improvement without the router but I want to use a hardware firewall And I am confused by the ISP says remove router for better speed results An interesting note the EL tech refuses to say what speed I should be getting and repeats there is no guaranteed speed CYA tech support Your comments appreciated thanks Dan nbsphttps://forums.techguy.org/threads/isp-says-remove-router-for-better-speed.286893/
I was using an old Linksys wireless router but got a new Cisco/Linksys Valet router. Upload and dowload speeds usually good, but sometimes there is a very noticeable drop in download speed. My ISP, Comcast says no trouble from their end and router tech support says no trouble with them either. Where I notice a huge drop in speed is streaming with Netflix. I never ever had a slow speed before but now with Netflix, via Wii on TV a movie will stop and show it is retrieving.
Question: Can my new router somehow result in slower speed?
Check to see if your router is set to a/b/g/n or a lower speed like b. I like to have mine on the fastest speed unless a slower adapter prevents this.
You can also flash your router to see if this helps. Make sure your router is not being blocked, is high up and clear of obstructions.
You can connect to a site such as:
Check My Internet Connection Speed | Internet Connection Speedometer | McAfee
Also, I think some ISPs will reduce your speed when streaming large amounts of data, but I'm not positive of this.
Finally, I have a Linksys router, but flashed it with dd-wrt
I can actually increase my signal strength, within reason.
Hello all For Christmas I got the family a new belkin router that should knock the socks off our old linksys g Today I wanted to copy a file to the usb drive I had attached to it and was dismayed to find it copying at about Megabytes per second from my Gigabit connected desktop Figuring it could be that Belkin s usb thing was poor I set out to run some tests Connecting My desktop directly to a laptop via ethernet produces speeds hovering around Megabytes per second connecting the laptop and desktop to the Loss? Router Speed router and performing the transfer results in speeds around Megabytes Router Speed Loss? per second It was my impression that Gigabit ports meant that it could transfer data throughout the network at gigabit speeds am I incorrect Sending the file via wireless g results in speeds of around - Megabytes per second which once again seems a tad slow I also know that MB s is awfully close to ye olde standard of Megabits per second so I assume there could be some sort of problem there Any help would be appreciated streaming HD movies as well as transferring HD movies throughout the house would be a whole lot better with some more bandwidth Thanks nbsp
You still have the bottleneck of USB to contend with. Share a USB drive connected directly to your computer and see how fast the file transfers are.
A friend of mine has just purchased a Dell XPS 1530 laptop. Unfortunately it doesn't come with a Internal wireless card that support an N Router. it's the 1395 Dell Wireless minicard. What are my options for using an N Router. Is it possible to buy a Built in or external PCI card that supports N capability router. She currently has a linksys G router. I guess she could buy high gain antenna's. Any suggestions either to improve the Linksys G Router signal or making the change to N Wireless capability. Thanks.
What problem are you trying to fix? Speed of data transfers between computers? Signal range? Etc.?
You can get an external 'N' adapter; either USB or, depending on what kind of slot the laptop has, a PCMCIA card or ExpressCard
Hey. I just got some new cat6A STP cables, and tested out my connection speed by directly connecting to my computer. I got somewhere around 100Mbs (I live at a university, so the internet is fast). When I connect my computer through my 10 year old linksys router, it maxes out right at 10Mbs. I am assuming that it is too old to support 100Mbs speeds, so I was wondering if I get a new router or switch, would one of those be able to support the 100Mbs, and which would be faster?
Edit: I guess I should add that I have tried looking for the answer to this question but most answers that I saw were for 5Mbs connections, thus people said it did not matter. But I could not find anything about higher speeds.
If your connection requires a router, get a new router. Otherwise a switch or direct connection would be fine.
This is from my last post moving to the next confusing problem behind speed problem a router Odd My customer has computers hooked up to his router The customer recently got his line repaired and is hooked right up to his node directly outside his house Going right to his modem he gets mb Once he hooks up to his router all of his computers all get between mb to mb Here is the problem One of the computers is only getting mb to mb I have tried so much that its driving me nuts The Odd speed problem behind a router computer is on windows bit The ethernet driver is a nvidia nforce networking controller It currently has the most recent driver actually I have even found a win update I ve swapped different ethernet cables and get the same speed Attempted changing the duplex speed with no luck Ran a defrag check the disk for errors and looked for malware Cleared the startup and even attempted checking the speed in safe mode with no luck I m lost anyone have any ideas nbsp
The computer gets 60 Mbps download connected to the modem but a max. of 36 Mbps connected to the router? But the router is fine with several other computers, right?
My best guess, emphasis on guess, is that for some unknown reason the NIC is having difficulty syncing to the correct connection speed with the router. Try different LAN ports to make sure it's not just the one port. Then in Device Manager - right click the ethernet - Properties - Advanced tab - Change the Speed & duplex property to 100 Mbps full duplex or 1000 Mbps full duplex, whichever is most appropriate for the router and NIC.

My customer has 4 computers hooked up to his router. The customer recently got his line repaired and is hooked right up to his node directly outside his house. Going right to his modem he gets 60mb. Once he hooks up to his router all of his computers all get between 58mb to 61mb.
Here is the problem.
One of the computers is only getting 29mb to 36mb.
I have tried so much that its driving me nuts.
The computer is on windows 7 64bit.
The ethernet driver is a nvidia nforce networking controller.
It currently has the most recent driver, actually I have even found a win7 update.
I've swapped 4 different ethernet cables and get the same speed.
Ran a defrag, check the disk for errors, and looked for malware.
Cleared the startup and even attempted checking the speed in safe mode with no luck.
I'm lost... anyone have any ideas?
Are you using Homegroup? are all the machines win 7 or other?
Hi this is something that has puzzled me for a while We have a relatively slow broadband speed at around Mbs however until recently our router has been stable and being quot always on quot would usually give this consistently Over the past weeks the speed for no apparent reason drops to around Mbs requiring a soft re-boot to get the speed back to what it was Fluctuating router speed - this would perhaps happen once or twice a week It got to the point of annoyance so I changed to the TT supplied router one which although was not as good as the Netgear DGND v we were using started to act the same after a week Fluctuating router speed or so I am now onto my third router Linksys x which ran stable for a couple of weeks then same thing To my knowledge interference from nearby wireless has not changed and the router is set to auto channel so that in Fluctuating router speed theory it should find the quietest one I am running a mix of cable and N wireless on the Ghz channel I am on TalkTalk and have used their line checker not sure how good that is and it says my line is fine and reports no problems Any suggestions
Check your speeds with this and see if you get the same results

I have a Linksys 4 Port Eatherfast Cable/DSL router - -Model BEFSR41.
I have two computers attached to them - one is my home pc, the other being a deployed computer from my job, as I work from home. I am hooked up to high speed cable internet service with 5 Megs.
Bottom line, work pc is not working at its best, and my work's IT department called and pinged my system.
The system pinged at 100 milliseconds, and the right ping should be at 35 milliseconds.
Is there any way I can get the speed back from 100 to 35 milliseconds? And, the 192.168.1.1 Linksys address is not working either.
Please...any advice is deeply appreciated because I work from home and really need to keep this job.
Thank you in advance.
I've been through 3 N routers this month, concluding that N just doesn't deliver on the 2 claims; speed and distance. That said, I'm sick of crappy reviews... heres what matters to me, and I'm guessing a few others.
1. What is your favorite router? You must have owned 2 or more for your opinion to be relevant.
2. I'm looking for experience in WiFi between two apartments to be exact, or any share thats spanned through multiple walls.
3. Not only is distance and penetration important, but consistency, and an overall lack of annoyances, such as, having a signal but not being able to login to administrate via 192.x.x.x.
While on the topic of routers, has anyone found a great range boosting antenna? In particular, paired with the router since the number of ports has to be equal to the antenna..
Go with the D-link 655 or the 825 if you need dual band and more range. Although the reviews are better for the 655.http://www.sevenforums.com/hardware-devices/81063-best-g-n-router-speed-range-consistency.html

I am curious as to what affect router security has on speed. When I use WPA security on my router, my average download speed is about 7 MBS, but when I change it to no security, the average download speed is about 15 MBS. First, is such a wide variation normal? If not, is there a problem either with my router, my cable modem or my computer? Is there anything I can do to increase the download speed while still using WPA? Thanks for your help and advice!

When I put a cable from the main router to my pc, I get the speed that I pay for. But when I put a cable from the main to another router, and from there to my pc, I only get 1/3 of the speed.. What do I do?http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forum/helproom-1/router-takes-23-internet-speed-4610829/
I am on a point to point internet connection that is rated at 2mbps. With my PC connected directly to the modem or through an old Airlink101 (model AR680W) router typical DL speeds are 1.9 to 2.4 mbps. However the Airlink router has to be reset 2 to 3 times per day.
I am trying to replace this router, however every router I've tried cuts the download speed in half (about 0.9 to 1.3 mbps). So far I've tried two Ultra Speed wireless N routers; two D-Link DIR 615's; and one Linksys E1200. When I talk to their tech support after testing they say that the routers must be faulty, but what are the odds of getting 5 bad routers from 3 different manufactures.
My IP does not know of any compatability issues with any routers.
How can I solve this problem or is there a way to fix my old router. Thankyou
For any of the routers make sure you have the latest firmware and then reset it to factory default settings.
Disable the router's wireless and test. Still slow?
I currently have a linksys wrt g router for many many years already My linksys wrt g is still pretty good for my laptop that works good with the wireless However when i download something big it rarely goes over kbps on the laptop to download something But when i download something on my desktop it always goes at least kbps Sometimes it goes kbps and mbps when downloading when im looking at the download speed when its downloading I'm not sure if my letters are right with the kbps or mbps but i think you know what i mean Is this b c my desktop is wired which is why download speed is so fast Also is it because my linksys router is a G router which is why it would never go like the speed of my desktop I mean sometimes it does go kbps when downloading a big mb file but its rare and speed always goes back to between - kbps If one uses an N router on my laptop when downloading would i see downloading Question Wireless G Speed vs N Router speed go as fast as my desktop
Your wired connection is not "g','n', etc, it is Ethernet & either 10 mbs, 100mbcs or gigabit. It will generally always be faster than wired. If your laptop uses 'g' wireless, a new router w/ 'n' wil not (necessarily) be faster.. the laptop will only work at 'n' speeds..
The speed, however can be affwected by distance, or obstacles(walls, appliances etc) between you and the router.
Also, check is the software on your router or laptop lets you use different channels in wireless. Using a less crwoded channel may help your performance. (if you have an android phone or tablet, there is an app that will tell you the best channel)
After adding a Linksys WRT54G wireless router to my system in order to allow internet access to a second PC, download speeds have decreased almost to the point of a dial-up connection. When I remove the router, download speeds return to where they should be.
Broadband reports.com after speed test recommended "tweak test" but that test caused my computer to hang up. And I don't even know what "tweak" refers to anyhow so I'm afraid to go further without some advice.
I know this has to be a router problem, but, being a complete novice in the router department, I've no idea what to do about it. Anyone have suggestions?
256 MB Ram
Modem: VisionNet ADSL 202ES
I just replaced my old router (Linksys WRT54G) to a Linksys x1000. However, my download speed is slower than the previous router I had. I tried the following things to resolve this problem:
Upgrading to the latest firmware version;Updated my wireless network card drivers to the latest version;Switching between different channels (channel 1 and 5 and default channel). I have set Network Mode to: Mixed and I set Channel Width to Automatic (20 or 40 MHz).
When using my old router I had an average download speed of 1 MB/sec while using the new router I can't get pas 500 KB/sec. In both cases I was sitting next to the router.
Oh, and by the way, there's also a port on the router named DSL. It looks like it doesn't matter whether I connect that port to my modem. How come? What's its function?
Anyone got an idea?

I have 2 computers which I wish to network. I have a broadband, cable connection to my primary computer and no connection yet to my secondary. Is there sufficient difference in speed, or would I notice any difference at all, between the 11b and the G. 54mbps routers, to justify paying $40 more for the latter? CompUSA has on sale, this coming Sunday, a Netgear MR 814802.11b Cable/DSL wireless router for $29.99 after rebates. They also are offering a SMC Wireless G. 54 mbps Cable/DSL router for $69.99 after rebates. Which would be the best buy for the long pull?
If you go wireless, you'll see a large difference in local network speed between the 11mb 802.11b and 54mb 802.11g wireless connections. OTOH, you won't see any difference in Internet sharing speed, wired or wireless.

I am using a Belkin Wireless Router to get DSL internet from my downstairs computer (the computer i use is upstairs). I've never had any problems with it, but over the past week it has been acting funny. I'll be using the internet, playing an online game, when everything goes to a crawl. I'll check the icon in the task bar, and it says the speed had droppes all the way to 1.0 Mbps. Slowly, it will climb back to normal. Then a while later, drop again. The thing normally hovers between 52.0 Mbps and 48.0 Mbps.
I don't know what the problem is, but I do know it's annoying the hell out of me. Any suggestions?
This is the curse of wireless. They all dip sometimes but down to 1.0 is pretty bad. First, change the channel. If it is a 54G channels 1, 6, and 11 don't overlap so go to one of those first (usually channel ,1 is default) so switch to channel 6 and see what happens (helped me with signal losses). Do you have a 2.4 GHZ wireless phone? They interfere big time with wireless routers because they transmit a stronger signal in the same frequency band. Adjust it's channel too, as far away from the routers as possible or better yet junk it and get a 5.0GHZ phone. Move the router around but upstairs to downstairs is tough regardless signal-wise. Try this before spending more money on goodies like boosters etc.
After dealing with BrightHouse Networks Roadrunner and Linksys tech support for the past 3 weeks and not getting the download speeds anywhere close to the 10 Mbps(10,000 Kbps) that my computers should be getting, I finally discovered what the problem was:
The network cards were set to "10mb half duplex" and had not been changed to "100mb full duplex" after installing a router.
Once the setting change was made, the download speeds increased dramatically and are now very close to the correct speed.

I have a router Linksys WRT54G. Is there a way in Windows 7 or the router to restrict the upload speed for computers connected to my router (wireless)?
You might be able to restrict some things if you have any settings named QOS (quality of service). I just looked in my router, it has some settings for that but it appears to be pretty lame in respect to limiting a user to a preset upload speed.
I also checked my switch. I think a managed switch could do all the things you want, and more. It appears to me that a managed switch would do a better job of Traffic Shaping than a router.
Haven't tried any of that, as of yet. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
Hi there, I have a ZXDSL 531B router from ZTE. I'm a network newbie here. Now here's the setup for the DSL router with 4 LAN ports, which all are connected to different PCs.

I am new to networking and I have several questions to ask.
I want to know if I split my internet using router to 4 computers is the speed becoming 1/4 for each computer or the same as original?
What if from the 4 computer only 1 is used, is the speed still 1/4 or original speed?
Is bandwith the same as speed?
I know I am lucky to have a 100mb internet connection (virginmedia) But I speed test and only get about 47mb (This is using my PC hard wired directly to the superhub).HOWEVER, when I run my PC in SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING I get around 102 to 104mb ( which is great if I only used safemode).
Therefore something is draing my connection. I have scanned for Malware, Viruses ans disabled most things in the MSCONFIG but still no improvement.
I attach 3 screenshots which may be of those who know about these things

It's a problem with your internet connection, a cable, the modem, the router, your laptop or maybe wireless interference if it only occurs with a Wi-Fi connection.
I have a 20mb Cable connection (Virgin Media), and I recently bought a Netgear WGT624 v2 (Cable version, not DSL), so I can use wireless with my laptop, and hook up my Xbox 360.
When using the router, my connection speed never goes above 10mb speeds (half of what I am supposed to get). When I remove the router, my speed goes above 10mb.
Neither the Laptop nor the Xbox 360 are turned on, so they cannot be causing the problems.
Does anyone know if there is something I can do to get the speeds up? Maybe something I can set in the router config?
I couldn't find the link where there was a bunch of routers tested for their throughput performance. But just because a router has a 100 Mbit WAN port doesn't mean it's going to be able to route packets at that speed. The internal processor still has to process each packet going in and out of the router. Here's a link with a few routers tested: http://www.smallnetbuilder.com/content/view/30280/51/1/5/
In the chart you'll see WAN throughput both up and down. The FVS336, FVX538, and FVS124 are all in Netgear's SMB line of routers. The FVX538 is Netgear's top dog router which is the only one capable of reaching near 100 Mbit performance. Now look at the FVS124, it just barely breaks 10 Mbit/s.
So the performance you're getting might be indicative of really how fast that router can forward packets.

Purchased Windows 8 Pro with a new computer system, an HP Envy, last week for work.
Have a dedicated 20 down and 20 up connection that is functioning at speed.
Loading internet pages with Windows 8 is incredibly slow. Had the very same connection with a 7 year old HP using Windows XP and the speed blew this away.
Slow pages are usually a sign of a dns problem. How do you have DNS configured? Are you using a gateway or router of some kind? Is that configured properly?http://www.eightforums.com/network-sharing/12462-slow-slow-internet-speed-windows-8-a.html

I currently have one of the earliest models of the Linksys Access Point WAP 11 hooked up to my 4 port wired Linksys Router BEF which I use just for my laptop. I have cable intenet right now and am using Power Line adapters with my wired router for my other computers. However, I find them to be finicky with my new home's wiring though and they seem to break easily. I was thinking about going totally wireless. One problem is that my access point barely can put out a signal going up one story in my home. My question is should I put out about $30 buck for a used Linksys range booster or just get a new Wireless Router to use for all my computers. If so will the range be appreciatively better? What kind of speeds can I get? What router would give me the best bang for my buck? (I don't need anything super crazy over-the-top).
I'm using a Netgear DG834PN Rangemax ADSL Modem/Router/Firewall which is supposed to provide better than standard range; perhaps this or the next generation of the same might meet your needs. (http://www.netgear.co.uk/rangemaxnext_wirelessbroadbandrouter_dg834n.php)
I am considering the addition of a video streaming device (Roku). In anticipation of making that connection I resurrected a D-Link Router I purchased many years ago. It's the DI-604 [wired, not wireless]. I connected in to my Motorola SURFboard SB6121 modem. Before I made the connection I checked my download speeds. I was consistently registering 58Mbps. After the router was added to the circuit my download speeds dropped consistently to 36Mbps.
Are there any adjustments I can make to that router, my computer, my modem to re-gain some of the speed I have lost?
Is that reduction in download speed likely to make HDTV video streaming a frustrating, unsatisfactory experience?
I would definitely advise purchasing a new router, since that particular model is really old technology.
I have 20Mb broadband from Virgin and Motorola Surfboard modem connected to a Netgear WGT624V3 router.
Our household has 2 Vista laptops and an XP Desktop, all of which connect wirelessly to the internet.
However, none of the connected devices, even when only one is in use, can achieve a download speed of better than 3Mb.
But, if I connect any of these devices directly to the modem, I get consistent download speeds of 16-18Mb.
So the router would appear to be the weak link.
I've updated to the latest router firmware, and I've checked the Netgear website, this forum and the wider web for ideas, but have found nothing useful.
Perhaps I just need a better router, but I'd like to try to get this one working.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
So I received a new modem today and wanted to tandem it with an extra router that I have so I can get wireless at work. Here are the steps I've taken:
Verify modem connection works connected directly
Set modem to bridge mode
Reset router, set to PPPOE with proper log in information
Try to connect, and get the message "Could not obtain IP from PPPoE"
I've researched as much as I could stand online, and found these to be the major steps everywhere, most people miss the bridge mode but I'm sure I've done it properly (switched back and forth atleast 5 times). I don't currently have access to the connection but I can respond tonight to questions about what else I may or may not have done, and will take what is suggested here to try tomorrow. Thanks in advance.
I've got 15 Mbps internet service from the cable company. When just one computer is connected to the modem without the router, the speeds average about 8-9 Mbps. However, when we attach the router to share the internet, speeds drop off significantly, like down to about 1-1.5 Mbps average and max at about 2-3 Mbps (around 3000 KB/s) and that's when one computer is downloading and the other computer is idle. The router says its capable of 54 Mbps and both computers have 10/100 ethernet adapters. Also, I'm using another router as a repeater since we don't have a long enough cable from where the one router hooked into the modem is.
I don't understand how the router is restricting the speeds since me and my roommate share large files (4-5 gigs sometimes) and we can transfer files of that size in like 4-5 minutes.
I use Windows XP Home SP3 and I have Wireless network using Buffalo WHR-HP-G54. All computer in the network are connected wirelessly. I am the administrator; I mean that I am the only one who has access to the router. the their clients that connected to my router are over using the internet by downloading so I need to limit thier speed. I can access the router and install any program in my computer but I can not force the other to install a program and they can uninstall it. I don't know if the router has option to limit the speed of other users.
Note: I am connected to the router Wirelessly too.
hey. im having trouble over my router. since i installed it, my internet speed is very low like 20kbps. when i used my modem, speed goes 64kbps (which is my actual speed provided by ISP). im the only one using this router. so my question is what should i do. OS doesnt support modem.
PS: plz dont tell me mozilla 10x fast speed rubbish.
Is a router with 11 mbps faster than one with 56mbps? I have sypatico with 100 mbps speed and im trying to find a router that will allow for high speed transfers. does router speed make a difference, does download and upload speed all rely on how fast my sympatico is?
No. The router normally allows the full speed from your ISP-provider (which is hardly ever more than 2MB anyway). So any router would do for that matter.
The switch-part of the router allows traffic between PCs on that netweork. That is limited only by the Switch-speed (either 10MB or 100MB) and/or the PC's NIC speed, also normally 10/100MB. Some more expensive routers allow network-speeds of 1GB, provided all the PC-NICs are also 1GB.
