DLink And Linksys - Slow Network Connection In Office?

Jan 30, 2012

I am puzzled about some problems that occured at my work place. Unmanaged switch like D-link & Linksys was used and it worked pretty fine only for certain areas of the factory. Then office with more workers will be using managed switch to ensure the workers have decent connection to the local server.

Question is, why are some small offices' connection so ridiculously slow?


The switches manage 4PCs

Tested - The main connection cable cannot go through the switch to distribute the connection. Even if there is only 1 PC linked to the switch, it will still be slow. It will be at it's max if it didnt go through the switch, but directly to the PC instead.

True enough that unmanaged switch aren't smart enough to allocate the speed, but why is it possible for some other part of the small office to have fast connection even by using the normal unmanaged switch?

Laptops Losing Connection On My Office Network?

May 17, 2011

I have 2 older xp pro tough books that connect to my domain via a pair of versa vx 400 access points. automobile technicians use these computers to communicate with cars via a separate wireless card and WiFi device (SPX MVXI) that broadcasts a wireless signal.they always connect just fine to the network but sometimes they drop there connection and don't rejoin which screws up my scheduled tasks (nightly upload). They will reacquire the connection every time if i select it again manually in the windows wireless config.here is what I have done so far

1. set up exclusion range in DHCP distribution on my DC

2. set the laptops up with static IP's within the exclusion range.

3. configured the laptops to auto connect to the network even when its not broadcasting

4. set the access points on channel 7, and the devices on 1 and 11.

I have done a lot of research on this issue, a rep from versa told me that Intel proset wireless isn't very compatible with there product which i this is BS since it does the same with with the netgear WiFi PC cards.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Slow Connection Within Network?

Aug 4, 2011

I installed the E4200. Internet works fine, and the internet connection is maximum performance. But if I copy a file between laptops, or to my mediaplayer (AC Ryan HD2), the connection is 3MB/s tops. I changed to the 5gHz and N settings, still no change.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Configuration On Office Network?

Sep 22, 2009

I work for a large company and want reinstall my wireless router so I move from room to room with my laptop without plugging into our network. I have had it set up before but had to spent an hour with tech support to configure the router.  Recently I had to reset the password and lost all the settings.
I can get to logged into the set up with the default password but have no idea how to configure it. No matter what I try I get no conectivity when I try to redirect the browser to the internet.
Yeah, I know I should let our network IT staff set it up, but they get all bent when I want to extend my access to a wireless configuration even if it's password protected.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 As Access Point In Office Network?

May 2, 2012

I'd like to use an E2500 as a wireless access point in my network. My computer is connected to the office network through a Netgear 5 port desktop switch. Would it be easier for me to configure the E2500 from the switch? If so, do I just plug it in there and access it via the IP address to set it up? And lastly, what should disable (DHCP) or setup in the router so the internet functions through it?

Slow Wireless Network Connection Speeds?

Aug 13, 2011

I recently moved to a new apartment to be closer to work and this apartment complex is only covered by what I was told is a wireless hotspot.Basically, a wireless devices connects to the SSID, logs in, and then you're set with the most pitiful internet still available.Now I was told I could pay $70 bucks to have these people (Onlyinternet.net by the way) install a device that would allow me to connect my desktop to the internet service. Wasn't thrilled about that. Its $40 a month, for a 1Mb connection so that wasn't going to happen anyway.Looked up internet connection sharing and had setup my laptop to use it with my desktop.My connection on my laptop has always had a very low signal; between one and two bars no matter where I'm at in my apartment. If I go outside it'll get about 4 bars but that is about it. The actual speeds listed on the Wireless Network Connection Status go from 1Mbps, 2Mpbs, 5.5Mpbs and 11Mbps. Never higher.Today I went and picked up a NETGEAR N300 wireless router. My hope was that the router might be able to pick up the wireless connection and I could just connect through my router instead of having to use my laptop. Apparently, this is not the case.I have to use my laptop act as a modem and have it plugged into the Internet port of the router and then my desktop connected to one of the LAN ports on the router. Is this setup better then using the internet connection sharing deal? Is there any other way of increasing my signal strength and network speeds?

ASUS PCE-N10 - Network Connection Slow And Cutting Out?

Aug 1, 2012

I recently built a new PC with an "ASUS PCE-N10" PCIE network adapter. I installed the drivers and everything was secure and nice and fast.

I moved the PC into another room this morning and everything was fine for most of the day. It's stopped working properly though now for some reason.

The connection is much slower and the speed keeps yo yoing and then cutting out. The signal is slightly lower due to positioning but it's still high enough. When it disconnects I use Windows troubleshooter to fix the problem and it says "Wireless Network Connection" doesn't have a valid IP configuration". It usually reconnects me then, but is still slower than it should be and it doesn't last for long.

I've tried connecting to a chosen IP but it just doesn't work. Other computers on the network are fine. Why now? What's happened?

Cisco WAN :: 3660 Slow Network Connection

Sep 3, 2011

I think I might have a problem  with how my network is set up. 

Cable Modem --->ASA5505--->Cisco 3660--->Switch  For some reason if I use the ASA as a DHCP server too, the internet is much faster.  Could the 3660 be slowing down the netwok?  The 3660 has 2 FE ports, so it should be running good at 10/100 correct?  Is there another setup I should consider to speed up the network?

Home Network :: Abnormal Slow Internet Only On Wireless Connection?

Apr 27, 2013

We have been having a very abnormal speed issue. This one has me stumped. I am fed up and thinking maybe its an Att issue that will NEVER be resolved.Brother comes and bothers me Zach internet is slow thinking hes just being picky I tell him to reboot his computer. He says its still slow. I run a speed test from my desktop computer I get a 5.36Mbps download and .63 up. I go to his windows xp professional laptop and run a speed test he pulls .63mbps down and .32 up. This is a Dell Latitude D610 with built in wifi. My desktop just so happens to be a wired connectionI grab my laptop which happens to be the exact same model and experience the same result. So I power cycle to modem, then the Linksys ea2700 router. The speeds go back to 5.37m down and normal speed up. Then after 20 minutes its back to a CRAWL.

OK the router MUST be dead. I will kill two birds with one stone. I plug in my Modem/Router combo 2wire 2700. Speed does the same thing starts off fast then slow to a crawl. Figuring it's a laptop issue I use a Linksys wireless USB adapter AE-2500. I get the same result fast then slow. NOW the crazy thing is that its only on my wireless connections. The wireless computers use wireless G and say 54mbps so why would the internet be slow only on the wireless connection.So maybe it's an interference issue So I start up the generator and plug my modem router and laptop into it. I then shut off THE ENTIRE POWER service to my house! I get the same result fast then slow. My neighbors are far apart and I have switched wireless channels and even used the 5ghz frequency with the same results.An ATT Tech says the line is fine. They came to the house and tested everything. The only thing that has happened recently was a storm which left flooding in some parts of town. Only one time was I able to test my WIRED computer and get a download speed of .04Mbps down and .32 up

Dell :: Inspiron N1050 Slow Network Connection On Bootup?

Feb 5, 2012

A month after i had this laptop(bought new) its started have insanely slow connection times after booting up. The little blue circle starts to twirl meaning its searching for a wireless network. It then freezes and takes about 1 min- 5min to actually come back to normal and connect to a network. If i hibernate or standby there is no such problem, only after a fresh reboot. For this reason i usually never turn off my laptop, thus avoiding a lot network connection wait.

Internet Connection Disconnects Intermittently / Home Network Extremely Slow?

Aug 23, 2012

I have been having problems with my Internet the past couple weeks. If I am watching a video, it doesn't matter which site, the video will stop and start from the beginning or the video will just stop altogether and I have to refresh the page. Another problem that happens while browsing, it will take about a minute for a page to load. The computer I am using is wired right into the router.

The rest of the family's computers the apple tv and the roku are wireless. I have been hearing complaints from them and have witnessed the laggyness. While streaming videos on the roku or apple tv, the video will stop and say video is not available or no connection. This is what I get from ipconfig/all

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54GC - Every Day Connection Becomes Very Slow

Aug 15, 2006

I've been using WRT54GC for over 3 months, but about two weeks ago I started to experience some strange behavior. About every day connection slows down to a few kbytes/sec (less than dial-up). Ping to comcast.net (my ISP) shows about 50% pings timeouted, 40% pings 50ms and 10% pings about 1 sec. Rebooting router works, but only for a few hours.I replaced the modem with a different model - it didn't work, so it's not the modem. I removed router and connected directly - no slowdown occurs any more, so it's not the computer. I am running latest firmware.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N WAN Connection Becomes Slow?

May 20, 2009

I have a WRT320N router. It is hooked to a Comcast cable modem (Motorola SB5101). After using it for a few days, my Internet connection becomes very slow and I have to reset the router. Generally I get download speeds of 10+ Mbps, but then it slows to about 1 Mbps or less. One time I was only getting 300 Kbps.I'm using a wired connection when this happens, so wireless is not the issue. Also, there is no firmware update available for my router; 1.0.01 was already on it. The only settings that I've changed besides the password are related to the wireless.As soon as I unplug the router and plug it back in, it's fine again for a few days. At first I thought it might be my cable Internet connection, but because I'm not having to reset the cable modem?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Wired LAN Connection On E1200

Feb 15, 2013

I have an E1200 acting soley as an AP.  Everything works just fine, but when I try to copy files from one wired computer(both Windows 7) to another one on the same router(the E1200 in this case), the network utilization is only about 4%.  If I take one of the computers off its wired connection and make it wireless, the utilization goes up to about 50%.  Also if I take one of the compuyters off this router, and make a wired connection to my main router(which is connected via a wired connection to the E1200), the network utilization goes up to 50%.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Slow WAN Connection - How To Speed Up

Dec 5, 2012

I have had a EA3500 router in front of a 3Mb ADSL connection for about 6 months.  This delivered essentially the same WAN performance as the WRT54G (v5) I replaced with it. Either router would get 2.4-2.8Mbps through a variety of speed test sites, inlcuding the CCC builtin speed test.I upgraded to a 10Mbps cable internet connection today, but the EA3500 won't deliver any more speed than with the old ADSL connection. The reason I am blaming the EA3500 is that if I plug my computer directly into the cable modem, I get a solid 9.9Mbps down/0.99Mbps up, which is exactly how my line is provisioned.   With the router in place and active, I get the same slow WAN connection, 2.8-2.9MBps, whether using a PC connected with GigE, a PC connected via Wireless-N, or with an iPhone. This all implicates the EA3500's WAN connection.
Is there anything that can be done do let the EA3500 work properly?  I upgraded my firmware today in hopes that that would change something.  But, I get the same speed with the latest firmware ( as I did with the previous version. Speed across my wired LAN is excellent; I can sustain 70MB/sec from my PC to my NAS.  It's only the WAN connection that is performing poorly.I can downgrade to the non-CCC firmware if that would make a difference; would it?
