Broadband :: Century Link DSL Wireless Connection Much Slower Than Wired?
Sep 7, 2012
I have internet thru Century Link (DSL). I also have a Netgear N-300 wireless router. My computer is 4 years old and is an HP with a G wireless adapter buit-in. Until yesterday, my provided internet speed was up to 7mbps. I received the same speed regardless of whether my computer was plugged in directly to the modem (1), plugged directly into the router (2), or wirelessly. We just upgraded our internet to 40mbps. Now, I get the 40 mbps when my computer is plugged into the modem or router, but wirelessly I only get about 4 mbps, 1/10th of what I get with wired.
ok when i'm playing my xbox 360 my brothers sister and my dad are on computers playing games and watching netflix and i lagg alot is there any way i can get my own network connection my internet provider is century link.
I have a defective DAP-1522, or what. First off, I have never been able to access the unit at http://DLINKAP when my computer is connected directly to the 1522 via ethernet, only 192.168.0.50 works to bring up the web interface.
Second, I have more than one AP at my house, but the DAP-1522 is the only networking device I have have problems with (I am using the unit in AP mode). Basically, the problem is the wireless connection usually is much slower than my other APs (both N and G), even when the computer is physically right next to the DAP-1522. And that's when the unit is at it's best. At it's worst, I can't connect to the internet at all, even though my laptop shows full signal strength. The 1522 just seems really finicky. The problem doesn't seem to be a networking issue, because a 2nd AP that is connected through the wired portion of the DAP-1522 works perfectly, implying the 1522 is having no networking issues when using the ethernet ports. But since the problems persist with full signal strength and with the computer right next to the 1522, it doesn't seem to be a wireless connection issue either. And I have no problems connecting to any other wireless APs I own (and I own about 5 others, not that I use them all at the same time).
If I could, I would return my 1522, but I've been tinkering with it for too long now to return it. It has caused me a ton of frustration. I had a wired-only router for a long time (hence the purchase of the 1522), but just bought a new wireless-N router that is performing perfectly (as a router, and as an N AP). I hoped the old router might have not been playing nice with the 1522, but have seen no improvement with the 1522 wired to the new router (on opposite ends of my home).
Note that I use Macs only, no Windows machines. I started with the 1.02 firmware for the 1522, now have 1.20 firmware, but have noticed no improvements with my issues.
I have a Cisco E2000. When i connect to my cable modem directly, I get 30-35 MBps down and about 10 up. When I plug in to my E2000 it does that at first... but slowly over time, the speed degrades, usually down to about 5-6 down and 3-4 up. If I unplug the router, it typically restores full speed, but not for long (a few days maybe). Also, when I unplug the router, it is pretty hot.
I bought a Westell 7500 router off ebay to replace the same router provided by century link as I was trying to avoid rental fees. My computer recognizes there is a signal, but I can't get the internet to connect. Any settings I should change? The router I purchased was configured to at&t service. I have Century link. Century link won't assist me because it isn't their router.
All, we have a cisco ISR 2921 router. We want to connect century link dsl via PPPoe on Gigabit int 0/0. G 0/1 is configured for a switch LAN. I think I may have missed a configuration on the router as It is not passing traffic. Do I have to configure anything so that it passes traffic to G 0/1 from G 0/0? Below is the running config

I have a Linksys x2000 and have been using it successfully on DSL with a local ISP. I recently changed to Century Link and now I can't connect to the internet (Century Link). If I change the UserId and Password from my Century Link values back to my old ISP values, I can connect to my old ISP. Century Link tells me they have my account active with the X2000 and Century Link.
was wondering if i go wired but through the router is it still being effected by the extra step or is that only going to effect wireless? asking because my wife is wireless but barely gets on, so if im about to do something intensive online would it be worth bypassing the router and plugging straight into the modem
I have two computers in the house both HP desktops, both run Windows XP SP3. The first one is connected to the internet by ethernet cable through a WRT160N router to a cable modem, the other is in another room ( about 20 feet away from the router with only one wall). The wired computer averages around 15-20mbps download speed while the wireless only gets about 7-9mbps. I've checked them both using Speakeasy.net and Speedtest.net the results are always about the same, the wireless has about half the download speed of the wired connection. They both have .95-.98 mbps upload speeds. When my old router (WRT54GS) finally gave up I bought the WRT160N which is an N router, I haven't upgraded the network adapter in the wireless computer to N yet. My question is should I lose this much speed through the wireless connection or do I need to change the settings on the router or the wireless adapter?

I have very low speed with router.First test without router - using cable directly to PC (DLINK DGS-3210 Managed SW - > My PC), here is result : Second test, using WR1043ND router (DLINK DGS-3210 Managed SW - > WR1043ND Router -> My PC), here is result : First of all, i thought that maybe WAN port is 100Mbit mode, but after i checked it on SW - port is still in 1Gig Mode (from router to PC, it is also 1Gig)Also downloading speed have same picture...Without router i get around 55MB/s, with router max that i saw is ~14MB/s....
I have two separate wired networks. Network 1 has a wireless router (an adsl modem). Router of the Network 2 is not wireless. Can I replace router of network 2 with DIR-600 to make a wireless connection between these two network segments ?
I originally installed my DIR-655 as a wireless access point, not using the wired ports at all, and it worked fine like this. Trouble with my trying to set up my Bell router/modem with port forwarding prompted me to change my configuration so my Bell router /modem is now only a modem, and I am using the DIR-655 as a wired as well as wireless router. I have a separate network server and so don't use the DHCP on the DIR-655, and I only use one port to connect to a separate gigabit switch that serves the network.
I am finding that the wireless connection works really well with the few wireless devices I have connected (mainly an apple tv, and a MAC book) but my wired connections to the internet "feel" slow, sometimes with a significant delay before links to sites are established. I click a link, and wait for several seconds before the site shows up in the browser; sometimes after that the same site seems to respond at normal speeds, other times there are added delays.
Is there something in the DIR-655 settings that would cause this? The wireless connections seem fine.
Should I be looking at a new router/modem (rather than separate boxes)? If so what would be the equivalent D-Link model?
My D-Link DIR-300 very often loses connection on wired and wireless connections. It stops connecting to Internet randomly i.e. any URL typed in from the browser times out.I connect various devices such as desktop, laptop, ipad2 over wired and wireless connections and the behavior is the same from all devices when this problem occurs. If I make a direct connection to the DLS modem, it works fine for the whole day, without these issues.I also observed IP address conflict messages and my desktop does not connect to Internet if I am running VPN on my laptop, at the same time, occasionally.When this occurs, I am able to login to the router and can see the WAN status and the DHCP address being allocated to the router. I can even do DHCP release and renew, but that does not fix the problem.
the Xbox part was a windows thing. The router, modem, computer, and monitor, are all on one powerbar. I have used the used-to-be-wired computer (I needed the ethernet cord for something else, haven't gotten around to plugging it back in.) and the wireless laptop loses connection periodically. ALWAYS lose connection on bootup. and also when doing power consuming things. SO, I believe it is a lack of power being sent to the router. wired connections would use less, thats why they are still active, but I assume the wireless transmitter needs more energy in order to function properly. I haven't used the old computer in a awhile now, but I assume if I plug the router into another outlet/curcuit I the problem wouldnt occur. Might need someone wiht more knowledge to confirm this, but I'm fairly certain this was the cause.
I am using InnoMedia MTA6328-1Be2S from Reliance and D-link DIR-600 for sharing internet connection. I have a strange problem here after using internet for sometime..I will not be able to use internet unless I shut down and restart both Innomedia and D-link.I tried changing configurations in D-link but with no luck. I lost the connection no matter I am using wireless or wired mode.I do not know how to login to InnoMedia MTA6328-1Be2S as well.
I setup a D-Link DIR-825, VB1, Firmware V2.00NA about a month ago. We have 3 Macs here at home - 1 brand new iMac, a G4 Powerbook, and an old G4 / 933 Tower. The G4 tower is connected via ethernet. The other two through Wi-Fi. My problem is that I can barely use the internet for even a few minutes on the G4 tower, connected via Ethernet, without losing my connection. I can be in the middle of loading a page or an image, and suddenly it will say "Waiting for xxx.com". Then if I try to go to Google.com or something I will invariably get "Looking up xxx.com". The connection usually returns on it's own, but it can take up to 3 or 5 minutes. When I get this message on the ethernet G4 tower, I will also have lost connection on the wireless Macs. For the first couple of weeks the tower was not connected and we were just using the two wireless Macs, and they were working well. It seems that as soon as I hooked up the G4 tower via ethernet, connections became very flaky and intermittent all of a sudden.All the Macs are configured for DHCP. We have a Time Warner cable modem. The G4 tower had previously been used at my office with it's own dedicated DSL modem / router, and it worked flawlessly for months at a time without dropping a connection. I've tried rebooting the modem, then the router, then turning all the Macs back on, several times. Same result. I just tried loading the new firmware but it didn't work. Said the Gateway was too crowded or something.
I have problem with my system. my system is Windows 7 STARTER. When i am using internet, every time the message is showing "Link to Broad Band connection failed - reconnect pending............" like that message is comming.
I have a modem which i use wirelessly by a router.how to use it as a wired connection.I tried unplugging the ethernet cable from my router and plugging it into my laptop but my laptop recognized it as a different network connection itself.To access internet i must first login at my ISP' website.After i connected the ethernet cable i tried accessing the net but it wouldnt redirect me, i kept experimenting and finally got there but once i logged in it said the user is already logged in and some usage restriction crap.

I've just bought a TP-Link TL_WR1043ND and when I was configuring the wireless settings first I had a +- 40Mbps connection,a little later the connection dropped to 4Mbps and was constantly dropping the speed.Sometimes it went to 15Mbps and then it drops back to 4Mbps.Right now its only 1Mbps.

But I have been having major issues with internet speed. I browsed through the forums and, as a result, updated my LAN driver with the latest driver for the Intel LAN Driver V184.108.40.206
I have the virgin media super hub with up to 60mbps download but rarely get over 20 and even then the download of webpages seems glitchy... on evenings it is terrible with 0.5 to 1.5mbps being the norm.The problem is also affecting Chrome which struggles to render maps and stream videos such as 720p videos on youtube even when I have a tested connection of 30ish. I usually resort to using Explorer, reducing videos to 360p or even 240p.I've reinstalled Chrome a few times but still no change.
What is going on??I also have an old Dell Inspiron laptop which works brilliantly with the fast internet - where the speed of the hardware is the only limiting factor.
he switch our internet and phone connection, our phone is now with vonage and internet to uBEE. SO ever since then our connection on the computer has been supper sloww. i am unable to play my games such as Crossfire this fps game. everytime i play it keeps telling me failed to connect to server. Then i sent a Support ticket and they told me to take this speed test.
Recently replace my DIR-615 (it died after about 3 years of steady use) with the 825.Followed CD setup wizard, adjusted some manual thing as well. Am experiencing slow streaming speeds on various websites. A lot of 'loading' pauses within a youtube video for example when I never used to have any stutter at all on my old router.On a cable internet connection with a standard cable modem (no router in it).DIR-825 FW: 2.06NA HW: B1.Wired connection to router, not trying to steam over wireless.Speed tested at 14Mbps down which is what my provider (cogeco cable) promises.
*The Problem - 95% of the time the wireless and wired is running fine. However, Sometimes randomly webpages on the computer will stop loading... but heres the kicker... other internet connected programs like Ventrilo, or torrents, or games will still be working and running from the net like there is no problem. When this happens the internet browsers on the macs and PCs will say page cannot be displayed instantly. Happens to all computers at the same time. After about 10min the webpages will load again. I have 16mbs internet and while this is happening my games and voice chat programs do not go up in ping at all.
I have turned off QoS since that made the most sence... but other then that I have no been able to figure it out. I even turned off wireless while it was happening and it still didnt fix it. A sure fire way to fix it is to restart the router.
I am 100% stumped. Do I just have a bad out of the box router? it is only 2 weeks old.
I bought a new DIR-655 REVB router, I already own the first version of the DIR-655 and worked fine, but the wireless range wasn't always the highest upstairs in my house and I was hoping with REVB they had improved the DIR-655's range. I'm not a big wireless guy, meaning if I can use a hardwire connection I will use it, so my house is pretty well wired, but for my daughter and son's ipod and Zune the wireless connection was weak in their upstairs bedrooms. It has been a disaster, the wired connections gets disconnected constantly, I say in the subject title 100's of times a day and I don't think I am exaggerating. It started with Netflix and I thought my son was crazy, how could new router do this, but it was doing it everywhere. It is hard to download files because I lose my connection. I have DSL through Windstream. My solution is to reinstall my old DIR-655.
Since buying and using this router about 1 month ago, I've had latency problems. With my Linksys WRT54GL, my latency has always been consistent. However, pinging to google (as a benchmark), my ping is a good 50-70 higher than directly plugging into my router. Directly into my modem I get 10-20ms pings; through the router, I get minimum 60ms up to 100ms spikes. When using the Linksys router, my ping would be 20-30s. I really hope it's just a settings problem. I've turned off QoS and wireless to isolate the connection to just wired, but it still persists. I really hope I can fix this problem, else I am going to buy a different router over the weekend. I can't play FPS games like Bad Company 2 with such high latency.
Region : Ireland Model : TL-MR3420 Hardware Version : V2 Firmware Version : ISP : Vodafone
I have a Vodafone K4605 surf stick (same as Huawei E372). It is a dual-cell radio modem so in normal conditions it will have throughput speeds twice that of a normal single radio, such as a phone or older previous gen stick. When I connect it to my PC and install the software that comes with it I can get 18Mb/s downstream. But when I connect it to my current router (draytek 2830np) I only get 9Mb/s so I'm guessing it is not using the two radios and aggregating the connection. So I have two questions. My main one is if the K4605/E372 needs a special modem string for it to work properly, and my second is does the TL-MR3420 have this issue or could I get the full 18Mb. Also I might be getting a K5006 soon which has three radios. Would the TL-MR3420 support that also and give me 27Mb?
I recently upgraded my DIR-655 to firmware version 2.10NA , 17, Oct, 2012.Ever since the upgrade, on a wired connection the router will occasionally not serve pages. This shows up as a DNS error, stating the DNS lookup failed. If I wait a bit and reload the page, it will sometimes resolve itself. If I bypass the router and plug directly into the modem, the problem goes away completely.This is happening on my MacBook Pro, OS X 10.7.5, any browser (I use Chrome mostly, but also Safari and Firefox have the same issue). This is not happening on my Linux laptop which I use wirelessly, or my iPhone or any of my wireless clients, though the same MacBook occasionally has trouble connecting if I DO try to use it wirelessly (I receive a connection timeout and cannot log on). I'm not certain at this point if the trouble is with the router or the computer, but it only began happening (and happened immediately) after I installed the most recent firmware.
My security setup, if for any reason it matters, is WPA2 with MAC address filtering.
