Preferred Solution: Speed Issue With Netgear Router

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.)

Hello.
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?
 

A:Netgear Router Limiting Speed

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.

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.

Hi guys,
Just wanting some help setting up a "Netgear 54Mbps WG614 v7 router".
The power is "ON"
The test is off.
The wireless is flashing
the internet "i" is on

And all the other numbers are off. eg. next to the internet there
number 1 "off"
number 2 "off"
number 3"off"
number 4 "off"



I'm trying to setup this wireless Netgear 54Mbps WG614 v7 router with a optusnet ADSL 4200 modem.
When I go threw the netgear the netgear interface a show. But I NOT have interent access.
When connteched directly to the ADSL Modem 4200 I get internet.
Oh the have a WG111v2 USB Wireless adapter.

NO internet from the router.

P.s tried reset router already. I get page can not be display.
Thanks
 

A:Router Netgear 54Mbps issue

The ADSL mdoem is probably looking for the MAC address of your computer (which had normally been the first device modem connected to till now). The MAC address is unique hardware address assigned every network adapter.
=> Meaning your netgear router has its own MAC adress
=> And the modem won't provide internet connect to any hardware it sees that's different from the your PC's MAC address (we'll leave aside why some ISP's do this)

Couple options:
a) Most routers (you'll need look at the netgear) have a setup option where you choose to either
- Use the router MAC address (default)
- Use a MAC address you tell it (in which case you tell it the computer's MAC address)
b) But probably simplest to try and force your ISP to reset the address it looks for. Either call your ISP and tell them OR for most ISPs power down your modem for about 15 minutes. Should now accept the MAC address from router. (power down/up works most of the time, if not call ISP dor mac setup in netgear

I have DSL service with SBC Yahoo. SBC provided me with a 2Wire 1800HG modem. I recently purchased a NetGear WGR614 Wireless router. I used the NetGear installation CD to install the NetGear router.

Hi All,

I recently put in a Netgear firewall, configured it, its running no problem. Then I setup a new Netgear N600 wireless router, configured it, gave it a static IP, connected to it, works like a charm. Thing is, when I try to access the web gui I receive nothing.. Is the Netgear firewall taking priority or something? I went directly connected to the netgear wifi router and double checked to make sure that there was no settings restricting administration from wifi users, etc.. Anyone have a similar setup ?

Thanks All
 

A:Netgear FVS318G FW & Netgear N600 wifi router Can't access webgui

You sure been busy! Have "seen" you all over this place.

Is the FVS318G router connected to the N600 router's WAN port or a LAN port?

If WAN have you changed one of the routers so that they don't both use the same LAN subnet (I didn't check each one, but they probably both default to the same).

If LAN have you disabled the N600's Dhcp server?

Should be easy!....
But I cannot get my NEW Netgear N600 router to communicate with a NEW Netgear WN 3000 RP extender.

The instructions say to press the WPS button on the extender then the WPS button on the router. No WPS button exists on the router!

The instructions also I can use any wireless network manager utility to set this up. Can't find where this is in Windows 7.

The I pad has found the NETGEAR_EXT address but won't connect. And the light on the extender does no indicate teh router is communicating with it.

Thought this process would be a simple plug and play, but...frustration!

The easiest way is to run the CD that should have come with the Router, if you havent got it then you will have to configure it manually.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

So I have AT&T DSL. I bought a Netgear N300 ADSL2+ Modem/WiFi Router that is compatible with my service.

Previously with this Modem/Router it would constantly drop the wireless connection for the Wii I have that was used to stream Netflix.

So recently I bought a Linksys E2500 Router so I could be able to use the Wii, along with 3 other desktops, 1 laptop, and 3 phones.

My ideal setup would be this:
Set the ADSL2+ Modem/Router to be just a modem (I know how to set the option for this)​Connect the Linksys Router to be what all the devices connect to wirelessly (this would serve as the DHCP server) ​
I have read that one of the Routers has to be set to "BRIDGED" mode, yet I don't know which device has to be Bridged

Hi,
I own a business that offers free Wi-Fi to customers. Originally I had the blue linksys wireless G router hooked up to the booster on the roof. At another location, I just got a Netgear wireless N router, and that worked way better than the linksys. So I got another Netgear router, and installed it in the first location- but I'd like to hook it up to the booster. The guy at Fry's said that the Netgear router will not hookup to the booster- I'd have to hook the Netgear to the linksys, disable something on the linksys, and then the linksys to the booster.
So, my question is, how do I do that?

Thank you very much!

Hello Friends,

Below is my scenario:

1st Router: Netgear (Currently working/Internet ON)
2nd Router, 3rd Router, etc... : All Linksys Routers (Trying to set-up).

I have cable internet and currently Netgear is connected with the cable modem and is supplying internet perfectly. However, I purchased additional Linksys routers and would like to configure them to work with Netgear Router, I have a static IP from the ISP.

Netgear Login IP: 192.168.2.1
Linksys Login IP: 192.168.1.1

BTW: All Routers are wireless as well. Awaiting your reply.

-Thanks

A:Using Linksys Router with a Netgear router?

That linksys router isn't a wireless router. I've never tried hooking up two routers in serial so I can't help you there, but linksys does have a wireless router that supports VoIP that would eliminate the two router problem. The linksys model number is WRT54GP2.

Ive got a new NETGEAR WG511 Wireless PCMCIA Card 54Mbps,
WinXP Home SP2
A Wireless Network using NETGEAR Router...

I have it up and running...BUT

when connected it shows speed of around 36/48Mbps (even if right next to router)
Iam using the laptop in same room 5ft away and when i open firefox it slows down to 11mb

Whilst this wud be ok for speed it seems that its not...My internet is 2Mb and 0.5Mb after 6pm
but with this wireless card its just a little faster than dial up (70-90kbps)

what can this be? ive enabled most internet related services..?

thanks
 

A:Solved: NETGEAR WG511 is slow (dial-up speed)

Hi,

I maybe misunderstanding but if your ISP limits you to a 512K connection after 6pm 70-90Kbps is slightly faster than you should be getting.

The connection speed to your router won't matter (unless it drops below the ISP connection speed).

Hello there!

I have a DELL Dimension 4600 series desktop computer and have bought a DELL Inspiron 1525 laptop. I also have a Netgear WPN824v2 refurbished router - hence no CD with installation wizard. Can anyone please tell me how to just plug in/connect the router to the desktop computer so that I can use the laptop wirelessly? I have Virgin Media cable broadband. I have looked at the manual on line but it seems to assume that the router is already connected to the computer, I can't even get that far!!My desktop runs on Windows XP and the laptop is Windows Vista.
 

A:Taken Netgear router out of box ... now what do I do?

Reset the router to factory default settings. Connect an ethernet cable between one of the LAN ports and the desktop. If necessary consult the user manual for how to configure the computer's TCP/IP properties.

Then login to the router, configure the wireless the way you want it (don't encrypt until you have a working wireless connection), and configure the WAN if necessary if you want to connect it to your modem.

update the WiFi driver.

verify that your land-line phone is NOT a 2.4ghz wireless also as it will interfere
with your WiFi connection.

If you're on the internet via DSL connection with your TelCo, then be sure ALL

Can anyone shed any light on setting up VPN from a remote PC to the office network via a netgear router?
 

A:VPN with netgear router

I don't know exactly what kind of info you're looking for but generally speaking:

- The client workstation uses a hardware or software "endpoint" on the client side
- Allowed users are placed in a table (the router itself, RADIUS, Active Directory, etc.) with username and password
- When an external user attempts a connection the vpn isolates the user from the internal network then checks the table to see if the username password combination is correct.
- If authenticated, the user has access to resources behind the firewall/VPN. If not authenticated, the connection is dumped.

There's a lot more going on behind the scenes....hashing algorithms, PPTP vs. IPSEC protocol, user isolation, etc. But that's a high level view.

If you'd be a bit more specific about the problem we'll try to steer you in the right direction.

A:Question re: Netgear router RP-114

Does your DSL use PPPoE? Meaning you need to enter your username and password to connect to the ISP? That is how most of them work I am familiar with. Try changing the connection type in the main router config screen to PPPoE setting.

Also give your ISP a call, they should be helpful in your setup.

A:Netgear Router Problems

Some things you can try here.
For wireless connections, change the channel on the router, I like channels 1, 6, and 11 in the US.
Update the firmware to the latest version available on the manufacturer's site.
Reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

Many times these measures will resolve a lot of intermittent issues.

If this fails, I'm going to guess it's maybe broken.

My Router Problem : I'm using Netgear Router for 1 year. Just few months I'm facing a strange problem. I'm using 2 PCs at home which are conncted to a Netgear router. I haven't done any configuration in the router, just simple as I connected through cable, thats all I did. I can browse any web site, but I can't log-in to any email, untill I go the router and refresh everything. After refreshing the router I can log-in to any email to check my mails. But after a while later I face the problem again, and have to refresh the router. I also face the same problem when I download any file from any web page, it stuck or stop the download process.

Please help me....

A:Network Help Please! (NETGEAR DG8 34G router)

sounds like a range problem - wheres the router sited and the aerial pointing - try changing postion - if you can detect the wireless and connect - and then when you move away from the router you lose the signal - that sounds like signal strength ....

can you post an ipconfig /all (see below) from one of the non-working pc's

and one from the working PC - which is connected by cable

- then can you copy files to the other PC - via CD or Flashdrive ???
if so , copy this program and run it - lets see what wireless signals it finds

Free software to check signal strength of wireless is netstumbler 0.4.0 available for download from http://www.stumbler.net/

Hi,
My friend just bought a new sony laptop with vista that has built in wireless. However, after numerous attempts to connect to the wireless network, windows keeps saying that it can not connect to that network. Also, it does say that it's WEP protected, but doesn't give any options to put that in.
What needs to be done to fix this problem and connect wirelessly to the web.

Thank You

A:Netgear Mr814 V2 Router

Have you checked to see if your NetGear router is Vista compatible. Some NetGear routers aren't, and there are some updates available for some of them on the NetGear website.Try disabling IPv6 for starters, and the DHCP Broadcast flag ( http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928233 )The WEP settings are set in your router - and you'll need to enter them in the wireless connection's properties in order to connect with WEP. BUT, the first step is to disable the WEP in the router and the computer until you get connected. Then add the WEP to the mix so things don't get unduly complicated.

then on documentation tab - you will see the user manual

If the router is using WEP or WPA encryption you will have to enter the paraphrase into each device. The numbers on the back are either WPS password and the MAC address.

Go to the manufacture of your router website and look for "Support" or documents to show you how to do this.

Other than that we can not help you with passwords, keys, and codes it is against the rules here. Forum Rules

A couple days ago I figured out the neighbors were jacking my wireless so I put a password on it.
Ever since then, one of my laptops will not connect every morning and I have to go and turn the power off and then on on the router and modem. Other people in my house don't have this problem so it is with my laptop, which is the only one with vista. I try to reset, reboot, etc on this vista laptop, but it will not get internet access until I reset the router and modem. What kind of software glitch might make this happen? This seems to happen every 24 hours.

Hi everyone,

I have a Netgear WGT624v3 router that came with the WG111T 108MBPS Wireless USB adapter. I noticed that my connection keeps dropping on it and I cannot understand why.

My question is, I have a laptop downstairs close to the modem and router, so I wondered if I could connect my laptop to the internet through my wireless router using wires and take the USB adapter to my PC upstairs to get it on the net?

I have tried connecting the modem to the router and then running a wire from the router into my laptop, but it doesn't seem to create a connection although it says on my laptop that it is connected. Can I do this?

Thanks.

First step is to change channels on the router to see if that helps.

Yep, wired or wireless is an option for any machine that has both capabilities.

Are you connecting the modem to the WAN/Internet connection of the router? Did you turn off the modem for at least 30 seconds when you changed the attached device or computer?

If the above answers are yes, let's see this for the laptop when you're connected with a wired connection.

Type the following command:

When that happens (example) i need to go to my cellphone setting s and disable wifi and enable it again then i get internet again. That is really strange problem and i have no idea what that can be. It happens only for automatic ips not for static and only on wifi(yeah i'm using only static now, but i need to set up all devices)...

However, I can no longer login to the router using the address 192.168.1.1 as listed on the router itself. When I do ipconfig /all i get this information.

P Address. . . . . . . . . . . . : 76.212.136.187
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0

DHCP Server . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1
DNS Servers . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1

This does not look correct to me because it doesn't look like it's getting the correct ip from the router. I've tried numerous times to reset the factory settings, unplug the power and restart, restart pc, etc.
Please help!

Hi
I have a Netgear router n150

I have to computers connected to it. Both are wireless using netgear WNDA3100v2 usb addapter. My main computer has no problems when it connects its fine you can see it connect at 52mbps. It is a new computer 2 years old windows xp pro. My Hp computer is 2005 runs on windows xp home. When it connects to the same router you can see how fast it runs at ( in the netgear smart wizard ) 140Mbps then in to seconds it goes to 130 to sends later its at 107 to seconds later its at 54 then to seconds later its at 11 then its at 5.5. and wont connect.

I have another router Netgear wgt634u about 5 yearsold. its a g router. Both computers running ok on it no problems

any help on this why my hp would slow it down. Must be a setting on the router.

Does the HP still slow down when the other PC is switched off ? Try swapping the Usb adaptors between the PCs, any change ?

I have a new wireless ip camera that works great and I can view it from any computer in my home after entering user name and password.
However, when trying to access from outside my home the ip address with the port number at the end doesn't even ask for a user name and password. It just comes up with a can't connect error.
I have a Netgear router and can get inside to see connected devices and I'm guessing somewhere in here I need to give a permission to view this camera outside my home network.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Nearby using your Wi-Fi, or over the internet? If the latter you have to use your public IP address and have to set your router to forward the needed port(s) to the camera.

I'm a noob here, so please take it easy on me. I've been trying to connect my NG router all week! I was successful once but when I turn off my PC and turn it on later I can't get connected to the web! I surmise there's a problem within the router! I figure there's a port within the router that needs to be open in order for me to access the web on a regular basis! I have AT&T DSL as my IP and it uses an "ifiddle" modem connection! I tried to talk to tech support at NETGEAR but they want $$$ to help fix the problem! Can someone give me hand in solving this situation?

Hi and welcome to TSG.
The WAN/Internet port of the Netgear router needs to be connected into the modem, and any one of the LAN ports for a computer.
