Cabling / Cards :: Download Speed Breaks Without A Speed Limit?
Jan 24, 2013
On board NIC: Intel 82579V Gigabit Network Controller (asus sabertooth x79 motherboard)I installed the drivers for it from intel's site.f I set link speed to auto (chooses 100mbps full duplex) or 100mbps full or half duplex, any HTTP downloads get slowed to a crawl (30kbps) (steam downloads remain at normal speeds). If I set it to 10mbps full duplex, download speeds jump to normal (500kbps for most HTTP sources)his happens on just this new computer (wired connection), any other computers on the network (wireless) work just fine
I just bought a used laptop and everything seems to work fine except the wireless. I sometimes can't find networks that I know are there but this can be fixed sometimes by restarting. The biggest problem I have is the internet speeds are really slow. I'm running on an N router and I am only getting about 100kb/s when my other laptop is getting about 600kb/s to 1mb/s. I have no clue what is wrong. I was thinking of trying to change the wireless card but I don't want to be hasty.
I bought my d-link 615 a few days ago and managed to connect it to my network and so on but I have a problem when it comes to my download speed. My usual speed is somewhere between 7.5-8 mb/s but when I have the router installed it's limited to 5 mb/s. Do you know why this might be happening?
I have two routers set up. It goes from the modem through a WRT54G2 to a WNR2000. I have one pc connected to the WRT54G2 that gets 20Mbps and another connected to the WNR2000 thats only getting 5Mbps. I realized recently I have them connected to each other wrong. Or so I assume. I have the fourth port on the WRT54G2 connected to the internet port on the WNR2000 and it's set to "Automatic Configuration - DHCP" and "DHCP Server" is enabled. From what I read one or both of those is supposed to be set to manual.
I just brought this belkin wireless usb adapter N150 and it is giving me slow download speed. I checked on Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and it gives me 0.20 mbps it is not going to the max my max is 3.00 mbps it is not the wireless usb adapter because i checked on another computer and it went to the max 3.00 mbps and i putted it in the same location as my computer so than i realised that it was my computer that is giving slow download speed and it can't find much connections.
I have 10Mbps internet speed connected to ciusco router 1841 that has 2 internal NICs. One NIC has a full 10Mbps download speed and the 2nd NIC is currently limited to 1Mbps download speed. I want to change the download speed of the 2nd NIC to 4Mbps? How do I do this on a cisco 1841 Router?
I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router. Uploads are 2Mbps either way. I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy. The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router? If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem. That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case. I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service. There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.
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.
I live in the tampa bay area, I have bright house (BHN) as my service provider, which provides a Road Runner Lightning (40/5) package. I previously used BHN's top tier (20/2) back in July (and prior) with no problems.
After converting to Lightning in August of this year (2010). Of course, BHN (and every other provider) wants to force a modem/router down your throat, so I had them bridge it (in short, turn it into a dummy modem with no routing). I had an SMC branded modem gateway at the time. I work from home 2 days a week (so I can spend more time with my kids during morning, lunch, right after work) and this requires me to use QoS to ensure my VOIP work calls don't get dropped, if the family is watching youtube videos or watching netflex.
My network was as follows SMC Modem >WAN IP>>WAN Port>>D-link DIR-655>>Switch Ports>PC1, PC2, PC3
Everything seemed fine (from a usability stand point) till about 2 weeks ago when my upload speed seemed to grind to halt. Normally I was able to upload about 200-300K per second, and I noticed this dropped to about 45K per second during a drop box upload. First thing I did was power cycle both my modem and router (in the proper/usual order). After they both come up, I start using speed test to find out what my upload speeds were. I was getting about 39Mbps down, but only .56Mbps up still. I factory reset my router.... test, similar speeds. Power cycle all computers (just in case), and then modem/router. Tested, similar speeds. Updated the firmware to the latest. Same issue
Called BHN customer service, they factor reset it, but it wasn't in bridge mode. If I by passed the 655, in factory mode (non bridge mode) upload speeds returned to better than expected states. If I bridged the cable modem, upload speeds seemed to crash.
Had BHN replace the modem, seemed fixed for a day, then issue came back. Had them come back out and replace it again, this time with a Motorolla Surfboard modem... same issue. Fine during factory reset, however after they bridge the modem, upload speeds were fine. Told BHN I would take it from there.. Connected up the DIR-655, and upload speeds crashed again. (.6Mbps). Called D-Link Support, and the Chinese English speaking rep seemed to not be listening to me and tried to have me adjust my MTU as well as Wireless settings. Long story short... the rep was a level 0 id10t and I hope D-link will consider hiring better employees/contractors. So I was all about to give up and replace it with a DD-WRT capable router (which it takes me a lot to want to swap hardware), when I discovered the wan shaping was on. Which I thought to myself... nah... QoS has never messed up before... why would it be the cause. Turned off wan shapping... and voila. Issue seemed to be insta-resolved.
Unsatisfied with that... I decided to dig a lil deeper. I turned on Wan shaping again, but decided to set the settings manually instead of auto detect.
Here are the settings I used... (Advanced Tab>QoS) Enable Traffic Shaping - Checked Automatic Uplink Speed - Unchecked Manual Uplink Speed - 5000 Connection Type: Cable or Other Broadand Network
Enable QoS Engine - Checked Automatic Classification - unchecked (this checked seemed to affect my upload speed by about 5-10% during testing) Dynamic Fragmentation - unchecked (this checked seemed to be the worse enemy for upload speed)
While I know I'm not any network guru (still have to use a subnet calculator for subnetting), I think I did a pretty good job drilling down the issue (once I got passed my service provider replacing modems).
Anyways, I've had overall good luck with D-Link products, even have a 5 port 10/100 switch (all metal) from 1998 that works great. Hopefully, D-Link will just either put more documentation on the web, or hire better employees.
I wan to ask whether i can control and limit my internet speed on LAN or not cos nowadays i have internet shop, but i couldn't control download bandwidth of each customer who come to download. Sometimes, it's effected to other customer using internet too,
i recently bought the dir-615, and i have 4 computers connected to it, 2 desktops with ethernet cables and 2 laptops with wifi. I want to know how to limit the internet speed on some computers, because i sometimes need full speed on my desktop. Is it possible within the router configuration interface?
I have a Belkin wireless N router and my PC uses a dual band wireless N USB stick. My internet speed when hardwired is 30 MB but when connected using my USB adapter it does not exceed 15 MB. Is there a limit on USB adapters and is there a way to increase the internet speed here?
I own a cyber cafe. I was told that switches are smart enough to distribute the same speed to all the clients. So I was not worried at first. But now if 2-3 customers starts watching youtube videos the rest starts complaining about the speed. I googled for the solution but got none. How to limit the speed,I want to lock the bandwidth of each computer.
I was wondering if theres a program or something that I could use for my router to limit the bandwidth that it gives on wifi? I currently have about a 20down/2up connection from time warner with a linksys E1200 router.
I just want to limit the wifi speeds to about 70% because recently someone moved in that does a lot of downloads and makes my games go from 40 ping to 300+ and also my phone is through the internet, which becomes unusable.
just some simple setting to set the max wifi data to 13megabits/s down 1mbit up or something.
3. wireless PC (not important here.)so PC1 and PC2 are connected directly to internet via this [URL] modem router. I have full control over everything and I did setup the whole thing.We have a limited bandwidth internet plan, but a lot of bandwidth is easily used up by PC2.I want to limit the speed of internet access on that PC2 so that downloading becomes impossible or difficult.
We need to have one connection with less internet bandwidth assigned to it than all other other connections. Basically it is a separate conection from all others, incoming just from one switch port and separate VLAN.I know this can be done on the switch by limiting the bandwidth allocated to a port,
however, is it possible to have the speed limited down, just before it goes to the internet, ie, on the ASA, rather than doing it on the switch?The firewall is an ASA 5505.
I have Verizon DSL. Since I've gotten it turned on in my new apartment it's been randomly DCing, I had a tech come out and tell me it was because I'm too far from the central office(thought I'm only a mile from the office?) and I needed to call and get my mbps reduced from 10, to 5. So, I called and did that and I was still having the same issue. Today another tech came out, told me the same thing, but I needed to be reduced to 3, and left. I called and got it reduced again. They said it should be 3-5 and I was at 5-7. So, now my download speed is actually higher than it was when I was 5-7(it was at 3 mbps usually, now it's 5), but my ping has doubled. Pages are taking longer to load, and when I play any games online there's a noticeable delay. I have been DCing less often, but it's still happening.
Speedtest.net always says i'm getting around 3 MB.Znet is always higher. Around 3.5MBTestMy.net gives me 5.4MB. On my Netgear router staus page it says my DownStream Connection Speed is 3776 kbps.Also, when i download a game on Steam, it often downloads at 600kbs or above.Which speed is more accurate?
I'm using 50MB/s hub provided by virgin media. The thing is everything works perfectly fine except the download speed on my personal unit worries me a bit. As I perform download speed test online, at my unit, I usually get the speed of 40 up to 49.7 MB/s, upload 0.7 - 1.5MB/s. However in case of downloading the same file from the same source other pc at our home network usually download it at twice or trice the speed my unit does. I'm positive that my card is capable of speeds up to 100MB/s.
I got a wireless network in my flat On this network is a laptop Pachard Bell EasyNote TK and a self build desktop. Both with Windows 7 I pay for broadbandspeed 50/5 and up to a week ago it was ok.But suddely the broabandspeed on my desktop was only 20/5.I have used all the ad/virus software.I have run wireless.exe on my desktop and here is the report.
I have QWEST DSL, and I am supposed to get 1mb + download speeds from them. When I talk to them on the phone they test my line at over 1mb and say any problems had to be on my end.
I have replaced my router and my network card. When I test my connection speed at this website CNET Bandwidth Meter: Online Speed Test - CNET Reviews
I get 1.2 mb/sec but I have never gotten better than 160 kb/sec download speed from any website I've downloaded from. Is this a software issue? Is my computer somehow throttling what it receives?
I did a Line Quality Test here DSL Reports and it is here: Line quality test packet loss and latency | DSLReports.com, ISP Information
I did three tests, and the bottom part failed 4 times out of 6, so the failures are repeatable. The data all looks comparable for each test on a cursory examination, not knowing what I am looking for.
I have no idea what this test means/indicates.
So my questions are:
1) What further information do I need to supply? (Assume I don't know how to do what you are asking me to do if it is in the least bit technical.)
2) Is my problem with my phone lines? I live in an older area and the lines have not been updated in decades so it may be that QWEST is claiming they can deliver more then they actually can.
At this point I suspect I will need to get cable in order to get decent download speed, QWEST doesn't offer service at the speed I get, so I can't opt for a lower price/slower speed option from them even though they are not delivering what I am promised.
I have a Mac and a PC in my home wireless network. ATT Uverse provides me with 16 MB/s internet access. I use the ATT wireless modem/router.With the Mac my download speed is almost 16 MB/s so everything seems working well.With my PC (WIN XP) the download speed is limited to less than 6 MB/s. I know that there is a way to allow my PC to speed up but I do not know how.
About a week ago i started experiencing very slow download speeds... things like streaming online videos and having to wait which i have not had to do for the last 4 years. I did a speed test on multiple sites and my download speed comes out at about .2mbps and my upload is still where it should be at .6-.8mbps. I have a 12mbps connection so this does not make sense at all. Originally thinking it was malware, I formatted both my hard drives and did a clean install of windows 7 and it did nothing to resolve the issue. Could it be that my wireless card's radio is failing?
About 2 months or so ago, my upload speed just pretty much stopped working. Nothing changed with my PC/modem/router, so I don't know what happened. My download speed is FINE, fast like it's always been(over 20 Mbps). I can upload a file maybe 500KB or lower, but it takes several minutes. If I try to upload anything bigger, it doesn't work(errors/gets stuck).
It's not my PC because I have the same problem on my tablet and ipod. It's not the router because I tested it by just hooking up the modem directly to my PC.
At speedtest.net, it just gets stuck on the upload test and never gives me results.
I rent my modem from Comcast. Should I just bring this modem in and get a new one?
I'm paying for a 50 mbs connection. So what should I expect to have as a general connection speed? I know it changes depending on where you are and where your downloading from etc. But I have this old killxenos nic that might be restricting my download speed? Im getting about 3mbs. Ive gotta be able to get more then that right? Like don't tell me I'm paying for 50 but I only get 3.
