Will 802.11ac router increase download speed?

Q: Will 802.11ac router increase download speed?

If I currently get an average of 20mbps using a linksys n router with comcast as my ISP. If I upgrade to an ac router, and assuming I have ac compatible devices, will I get any significant increase in wifi speed? I wasn't sure if I need to get a faster internet tier from Comcast or not. AC routers promise much faster speeds (400mbps) but comcast says they provide me with 25 tops. Can I just upgrade my router or do I have to pay more to comcast?

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

If 25mbps is all that comcast is providing, u are doing all u can expect if u are receiving 20 u are doing all u can expect with that plan. changing u'r router is not going to help in the least.

My dad currently has DSL service through AT&T. When he first purchased and set up the service, he was given a Siemens SpeedStream modem. Over time the connection speed has slowed to a crawl; I'm not sure if this is due to the modem itself, the computer's network card, or something else entirely. He's seen the different routers for sale at computer stores and neither of us were sure if they would be compatible with his current setup, or even if buying one would have any kind of benefit speed-wise. He doesn't want to upgrade or change services if he can avoid it. Any thoughts?

A mate of mine signed up with TalkTalk fairly recently. She got the basic package, and uses a Linksys WAG354G router.

TalkTalk have kindly upgraded her free to 8Meg bb. Lovely, you would think, but now she is continually being booted off the net. She phoned TalkTalk who told her that her router is not able to deal with the 8meg speed (they said, and I quote that the router is ADSL2 and that cannot handle 8meg bb...), and should she wish to upgrade, then it would take another three weeks to get things sorted out for her.........

This sounds like b/s to me.

Anyone know any better??

Hi there trying to increase the Wifi speed -- have a decent Wifi adapter with ac capability - connected to USB port Speed should be up to - Mbps instead of the Mbps it shows I KNOW the cable speed via LAN is really fast - so is the built in Wifi router that the cable company have given me not up to the job for Wifi -- I really would like to get rid of loads of LAN cable around the place That's why I don't like these boxes the ISP issues you with thereoretical below Wifi well (802.11ac) speed - there's minimal tinkering you can do with them - but you have to use their cable box as a typical Router connects via the phone -- that phone connection system has long since disappeared where I am Seems that the cable boxes you get hobbled with by the ISP company - while OK for LAN seem to not be built for the fastest Wifi Protocol Anyway round this Wifi speed well below thereoretical (802.11ac) --- any call to the cable company seems to involve my worst nightmare -- long waits on the Wifi speed well below thereoretical (802.11ac) phone to some Indian call centre where the staff at the other end haven't a clue what I'm talking about -- all they seem to mouth over and over again - Is your Internet working --YES IT IS but that's not the problem Grrrhhhhhhh Cheers jimbo

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.

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.

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 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?

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 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
B only
G only
N only

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.

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?

A:is wireless router reducess the download speed?

Does the same file transfer speed occur with a wired connection? Please understand that Mbps (Mega bits per second) is NOT the same as MB/s (Mega bytes per second).

Based on what you say this would not add up however if the transfer rate was in bytes then this would be normal. When doing the file transfer are you downloading from the internet or transferring the file between two machines on your network? Transferring data between two machines on your network should give you a better understanding of what the speed of your wireless connection is.

8 bits in a byte

1024 bytes in a Kilobytes

1024 Kilobytes in a Megabyte

1024 Megabytes in a Gigabyte

2 Mbps = 2000 Kilobits per second

2000 / 8 = 250 Kilobytes per second transfer rate

(Where / is a divide)

A:How to increase CPU Fan Speed

It depends on the type of fan you have.

Some of them alter their own speed according to the temperature, some of them have their speed adjusted by the motherboard.

How many wires run into your fan? If it's three wires then there is no way to control its speed. If it's four wires then connecting the speed control wire to +5V should do the trick.

A:How to increase 3G speed on my computer?

Well first of all, what providers do you have available in your area?

3G is going off of the cell towers, so if you're in an area with low signal, or high population (more people running off of the towers), then your bandwidth is going to be choked and you'll get slowdowns.

If you're losing connection at your house though, you may have an issue with your system itself. Do you have another computer/device you can test the connection with? If so, does it's connection drop out at the same time as your primary system's connection?

And i already increase the port speed of my modem (Com3) to 115200 BPS.

A:How to increase receiving speed.

You apparently do more receiving than downloading. Almost everything that you are "sending" is an acknowledgement that you received the packet. These acknowledgements can be compressed much more than the data itself, therefore you will only get a 2%-3% receive compression, but a much higher send compression.

Comcast seems to have souped up our connections, and I didn't even hear about it! Last time I heard, we had 4000/384, but today I was downloading a large file, and noticed that I seemed to be getting really fast downloads, maintaining 600kb/sec for a 100mb file. I checked the speed test at, and it does seem that the connection is faster right now.

A:How Do You Increase Broadband Speed?

I verywell could be. The download speed is determined by several factors. The most restrictive is how much bandwidth will the remote server let you have to download the software. I have 6Mbps download speed. MajorGeeks and seldom allow me more than 250Kbps and it is not uncommon to be as low as 150Kbps. With that said I have downloaded from at over 2.5Mbps on occassion. Have you tried testing your download speed? Try testing your speed at the following link.

hi guys, is there a way to increase wifi speed to make i go fast like a cable connection?

any surgestions would be good?

A:is there a way to increase wifi speed?

Hi there

1)Your Router needs to support the new Wireless-N standard up to 600 mbs from the presemt 54 mbs (WIRELESS-G).

2) Your Wireless card need to support it too.

Wireless-N routers are a bit more expensive -- and the problem is that if you are using a Laptop it's not easy to change the wireless chip so you'll have to use an external USB Wireless-N card -- also not cheap.

I don't think there will be too many PUBLIC WI FI places that will have wireless -n system for ages yet so you are stuck with wireless g @ 54 MBS max.

If you are on a shared wireless connection then the number of users will also slow it down -- especially if you have a load of users such as in a Hotel downloading Music / streaming audio into their hotel rooms etc.

Here's a wiki on Wireless-n (do further research as always with wiki).

I recently purchased a new computer (parts) from Newegg. My motherboard is an ASRock P45XE,,2110-2.html
My processor is an E8400, and I have 4GB of G.Skill DDR2 1066.

In the BIOS settings, I change the FSB of my processor from 333 to 356. Which is 3.0Ghz to 3.21Ghz. Increasing this, changes my DRAM frequency from 1066 to 1138. For some reason, my computer won't function after the BIOS screen with 3.21Ghz AND DDR2 1138.

Although, I am able to run my computer safely at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854.

So my question is... Should I run my computer at 3.0Ghz and DDR2 1066? Or should I run it at 3.21Ghz and DDR2 854? For the best performance

A:FSB increase or higher RAM speed?

You can OC and manually set a divider in the BIOS to allow you to run your RAM and FSB at different speeds. For your given numbers, you can set a RAM:FSB divider of 8:5.

Your OC may also be limited by your motherboard. But generally speaking, a higher CPU frequency nets a greater boost in performance compared to a higher RAM frequency.

to increase the speed on bit torrent or on utorrent ive seen some videos too
but how do i increase the speed too somthing like 512kb or somthing alike please
anybody who knows anyrhing about this please help

A:Bit torrent speed increase


Bit torrent and the like are peer to peer software and work on the basis that you take pieces of the item you want from people who have either the full file or part of it, in a sense this means the actual download speed is dictated by how many people are giving the file (seeding) and how fast there connection is to the internet, if for instance the majority were still on an old dial up then you would see a slow connection and download rate, however if they have a good broadband speed then the download speed would increase.

You cant do anything about the speed other than to try and get a file from those who have a good internet connection, as this isnt something you can guess at then your stuffed and have to wait for the file at whatever speed you can get it at.

I will say this, ensure your router (if you use one) has the correct ports opened on it to allow BT to connect properly, and remember that BT itself is an illegal method of sharing files and you run the risk of being taken to court for any files you choose to download.

A:Have any tips to increase internet speed

the best way to have faster internet that i have found is:

1: use a computer that is cheap to replace. (older is usually the case here)
2: use a wired connection
3: Firefox with add blocker (most adds are images, get ride of them get ride of about 1/2 of the page download)
4: set Firefox to delete all cookies and temp files when closed. (not with addons, just with the normal settings)
5: do not use any software that effects any programs dealing with the internet.
*no anti-virues, firewalls,un-needed addons, web sharing. ~ this is why you want to use a cheap fix computer*

if you do this:
you want to keep any thing you want to keep on removable memory (and backed up).
virus removal software on the computer but not constantly running. (manually scan)
and an operating system disk for the computer to reinstall if needed.
i have an old 98 computer that i use like this... when i use it i never seem to have any problems... but when others use it i always seem to have to scan/reinstall.

BTW i have tried a lot of different speed increasing software but i have not found any that works at all.
also some changes to your network card settings might help.

Hello to all of you!

The most frequent download speed I get from (Steam, IDM or Browser downloads) ranges 100-120 KB/s.
But sometimes I get about a speed ranges 900 KB/s or even 1MB/s higher.

Can someone tell me how can I make it stay with 900 KB/s?

A:How can I increase my Internet Downloading Speed

If your connection is 100Mbps then you should get downloads of 12MB/s. However, I think you are mistaking LAN connection speed with the speed you are getting from your Internet Service Provider (ISP). You can only increase Internet download by switching to a better Internet plan from your ISP.

LAN speed is the speed you can get while communicating with other local PCs that are wired to the router.

I used to have a P5B motherboard, but can't recall all the options in the BIOS. That's where I'd look for more control.

Have you minimized running processes and applications as best you can?

The Quad 6600 was a great processor in its day, but is getting a bit long in the tooth---4 or 5 years old.
Relevancy 55.47%

amd 2500+ OC to 3200+
mobo gigabyte 7s748
cheap 450w power supply
coolmaster fan (looks like a jet engine)
cpu +5%
confused look on my face
Im new to overclocking
Dont understand it:
when i turn the fan speed knob the temp dosnt go down more than 1 degree or nuthin at all(celcius)

do i need different thermal grease, or more or less (is there such a thing as too much?)

idle is 50*C, im not worried about that but
would appriciate any comments

(not an invite to sarcasm..... maybe just a little)

thanx guys

A:fan speed increase wont make cooler

Welcome to TechSpot forums

Maybe the temperature doesn't drop much because the hot air stays inside the case. In other words, how's the airflow in & out the case?
