Cisco Routers :: RV180 Decreases Internet Connection Speed?
Mar 9, 2013
My internet connection speed, measured by speedtest.net with PC connected directly to cable modem, is ping=33ms, dn=48Mbps and up=7.6Mbps. (These values changes slightly with each test, sometimes being a bit higher and sometimes a bit slower, but usually being in the neighborhood of the 50Mbps promised by my ISP.) When this same test is run with the PC connected directly to a port on my RV180 (firmware version 184.108.40.206) the measured speed is ping=35ms, dn=30.66Mbps and up=7.45Mbps. Given that the RV180 is supposed to provide very fast WAN to LAN throughput (Small Net Builder's test result is 798Mbps dn and 811 up, measured with the same firmware version), why is my unit seemingly decreasing the internet connection (WAN) speed coming out of my cable modem? What, if anything, can I do to increase my WAN to LAN throughput?
I try to connect Siemens SIP IP phone to switch LinksysSRW2008P with PoE for scheme: main switch <-------> linksys <-------> phone
I can't have access to Linksys by local network or web interface, so I connect through COM port and reboot the device and restore all settings to defaults. There was another linksys switch with the same default IP in my network, so I've tried to change ip address for my Linksys device. After that I can ping switch IP without lost packages successfully and partly access to login page by web, but including Linksys to the local network causes decreasing all network working speed, so the web administrative form can not be loading at all. In both cases (default ip or another one) the set isn't working, so I can't have access to the phone by ping or web interface. The cable to main switch inserts to port 1 and green rectangle indicator is flashing rapidly. The cable to the phone inserts to port 2 and orange indicator is lighting, green indicator is flashing slowly. Interestingly, only one port has status UP (port 1), all another port has status DOWN. If I replace cables ports with each other, only the port where cable to main switch is inserted, will have status UP. The phone station is getting power from switch in both cases. I've tried to change Spd/Dpx ports' parameters, used DHCP for getting IP, but I've gotten no result. How can I solve the problem? Is Linksys switch worked or defective?
We are using WI-FI with more than 20 clients at a time.Now the speed seems to very decreased,because most of them using torrents for downloading.Is this the correct reason for low speed?How can I detect who or howmany people using torrent?And is there any need to block torrents?
My brand new RV180 seems not to be able to exceed 1.1 MB/s WAN download speed. Using a simple Linksys WRT-320N I used to have 5-6 times this speed. Value is with default settings, various sources (HTTP/NEWS downloads). Trying to improve this wit QoS-settings dows not improve this in any way.
My download speed has decreased to about 1/40th of its previous speed, while my upload speed remains the same. Speedtest shows that my connection is equally strong as it was prior to the slowdown, even though I can't even get anything close to my original speed.Fully detailed version: About a week ago, my download speed decreased from 2 megabytes/s to about 50 kb/s. Prior to the speed decrease, I did not install or update any programs, so it's probably not an interference from some wayward program.
When enabling the WAN Traffic Meter on my RV180 with firmware 220.127.116.11, my download speed drops to half of my capacity.WAN Traffic Meter disabled: download around 13 MB/sec, WAN Traffic Meter enabled: max 6 MB/sec.WAN QoS is disabled!
I have TL-WR740N router. ISP should provide me up to 100Mb/s internet speed. Actual measurements shows me about 80 Mb/s. The problem is when I enable 3389 port in Port Triggering my internet speed drops to 2,5 Mb/s. When I disable port triggering, speed become normal again.
I have a belkin N750 DB router. I recently upgraded by internet service from 15Mbp to 30Mbp. If I connect my computer directly to the cable modem, I get 30Mbp throughput. However, if I connect the modem to the router my speed drops to 15Mbp. How do I get the router to support 30Mbp?
I used to have a Netgear Prosafe 318 conncted to a Netgear Prosafe 336G in a small office environment across the WAN between two offices, IPsec preshared key. The 318 took a dive so I decided to upgrade to a new Cisco RV180 VPN router. I set up the VPN access rules exactly the same and forklift upgraded the Prosafe 318 (same IP, same rules, same pre-shared key, IKE setup etc) and the VPN tunnel comes up fine. However, even though the VPN tunnel says connected and I have no problems pinging anything across IPsec between subnets I cannot seem to connect to anything from the cisco side.
From the Netgear side I can connect to anything on the cisco subnet (192.168.0.1 / 255.255.255.0) but from the cisco side anything I try and connect to on the netgear side (172.16.0.1 / 255.255.255.128) times out.Encryption AES-128 (although also tried 3des), Sha-1 SA-lifetime is 3600 seconds, PFS key group enabled DH-group2 (although also tried group1)IKE policy direction Both, identifier FQDN (both sides), Preshared key SA-lifetime 28800 seconds. Firmware is updated on both the netgear and the RV180 to latest version (18.104.22.168 on RV180).Like I said from Netgear to Cisco through VPN tunnel everything works fine from Cisco to Netgear everything times out.
I am running firmware 22.214.171.124 on an RV180. After recently upgrading to Microsoft Internet Explorer 10, I notice the RV180 administration screens do not display properly. Specifically, the horizontal window pane is set so high (not adjustable) all the information is not fully displayed. If I use a previous version of Internet Explorer I don't have a problem or if I use another browser like Google Chrome I don't have a problem. So it appears the RV180 and Internet Explorer 10 are not fully compatible.
Below is a screenshot using Internet Explorer 10 showing the Status page. You can see the horizontal window cuts off most of the information and there does not seem to be a way to "pull" it down to display more information.
Here is the same Status Dashboard selection via Google Chrome. Unfortunatly I don't have Internet Explorer 9 still installed, but it worked fine.
I have 02 router Linksys Rv042 ( 01 old and 01 new ). I'm config router Rv042 new and router connect Internet. But router connect internet very slow. When i using Vigor 2910 connect internet very Fast or using router Rv042 Old connect internet very fast. Two Rv042 the Same. I don't using firewall.
I have FiOS and their supplied wireless router Actiontec #: MI424WR. I have equipment that uses the newer N signal so I purchased a Linksys E3000 Wireless-N Router. This is working great for my wireless home theater equipment but I am having problems with my wired speed. It has gone from 20 to 30 mbps to around 10 mbps. I have one of the LAN outputs on the Actiontec feeding the Linksys input, I have my computers plugged directly into the Linksys verses the Actiontec. This makes it easier to program the Linksys router. Since I am no longer using the wireless part of the Actiontec there really is no need to be plugged into it. Is there anything I can do get my speed back or will I have to plug the computer back into the Actiontec and move it every time I may need to make a change to the Linksys
How can I optimize my computer's connection speed? I'm using a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop, and I used to have Vista installed on it. When I used that, my connection(via speedtest.net) was around 25mbps. I reformatted it last Summer and installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 onto it. A few months ago, I used speedtest.net and my speed test was around 16mbps. Now, my speed test is 8mbps. How can I optimize my internet connection speed? My internet service provider is Comcast.
I have an RV180 VPN router.I try to enable the VPN users with PPTP or QuickVPN but is not working.For PPTP sometimes my windows 7 connects to the router, sometimes doesn't connect with a random error message.When it connects, the windows 7 from outside the lan can see the computers from inside the lan but the computers from inside the lan cannot see the windows7 one. This is random also. When i succed to connect, from that computer, the internet is not working anymore.I tried to set the VPN in the same subnet as lan, i tried with different subnet. Is not working.I updated the last firmware. The same.Restore factory settings couple of times, the same.
I noticed if you add more than 10 access rules to the Access Rule table, you are unable to reorder past the first 10.Steps to reproduce:Create 11 rules of the same stream direction, outbound or inbound (...I found the bug with outbound, did not test inbound).try to reorder one of the first 10 rules to the end of the list, either by entering "11" manually, or by pressing the down arrow.System responds that "11" is an invalid number, or that the rule cannot be moved.This issue is not reported in the "Known Issues" section of the release notes for 126.96.36.199.
In both cases above, after I started to suspect QOS, I entered a narrow IP range to test and then a MAC to test. Using a VLAN seems to work fine and generate no errors - even a VLAN for the same associated host(s).
I have a support case open about this - didn't get too far yet, but now with a better repro, maybe they will.
Recently I upgraded my Internet speed at the ISP from 10Mbps to 25Mbps and the problem is that I am measuring only 15Mbps using [URL]On the day when the tech came out to install the new DSL modem, he noticed the difference and as part of troubleshooting, he bypassed the Linksys router and voila the net speed measured 25Mbps using speedtest.net.So, why my Linksys WRVS4400N V1.1.13 acts like a bottleneck in this case? I didn't have this problem at the speed of 10Mbps. The upload speed is OK, it is 5Mbs with or without the DSL modem.
I recently got a Belkin N150 Enhanced Router Model F6D4230-4 V1. I upgraded it to the recent firmware.
I use it NOT to access internet, but only to hook up my desktop computer with my laptop and my tablet PC. I use Win7 Ultimate on both computers. I configured a Win7 home network and I managed to access shared files between the 3 devices.
However, the speed is very very low, not going over 1.5 MB per second , sometimes even less, although the signal strength is the maximum (54).
The distance between the laptop and the desktop is only 4-5 meters, in the same room. My laptop is HP Compaq 6710b which has what seems to be a "Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection" .
Transfer speed is the same whether transferring from or to the laptop. I configured the laptop according to the instructions in the manual.
I have 4 T1s going to a site, 2 of which are new (all 4 are with the same provider).I initially noticed that throughput of the 4xT1 bundle seemed a bit off, so I did additional testing.I found that whenever I have a certain T1 in the bundle (whether its 2xT1, 3xT1 or 4xT1), throughput is drastically decreased.There are no errors on the circuit, so my provider is being difficult about "repairing" it since they also see no errors.
I currently have an RV180 in a small business set-up and curently being accessed remotely by laptops (Quick VPN) and Ipads/Android ICS tablets (PPTP). All is working well but I've become concerned about the security risks of PPTP and would like to shift the tablets to IPSec.
1) For a small business are the PPTP risks real?
2) What are the alternatives for Android ICS? I can't find a Quick VPN client for Android.
3) I can't get the core IPSec VPN in Android to connect to the RV180? Is this possible?
I have RV180 configured with two VLANs. First VLAN is untagged and second VLAN is tagged. The purpose is two have two subnets, with the second subnet used for guest access. Both VLANs have DHCP server enabled. First VLAN is 192.168.1.0/24 and the second VLAN is 192.168.2.0/24, When I connect a computer with untagged Ethernet interface, it gets an IP address from DHCP server on the first subnet i.e. 192.168.1.100 and it can successfully access Internet. When I connect a computer with tagged Ethernet interface (I am using VLAN ID 10), it gets an IP address from DHCP server on the second VLAN i.e. 192.168.2.100. So far so good. I can successfully ping hosts on the Internet i.e. ping www.google.com. But I cannot access Internet from the web browser. I captured Wireshark trace and here is what I see...
1. TCP SYN. Source IP 192.168.2.100, destination IP A.B.C.D. Ethernet frame has VLAN tag (VLAN ID 10) 2. TCP SYN ACK. Source IP A.B.C.D, destination IP 192.168.2.100. Ethernet frame has VLAN tag (VLAN ID 10) 3. TCP ACK. Source IP 192.168.2.100, destination IP A.B.C.D. Ethernet frame has VLAN tag (VLAN ID 10) 4. TCP Data. Source IP 192.168.2.100, destination IP A.B.C.D. Ethernet frame has VLAN tag (VLAN ID 10) 5. TCP Data. Source IP A.B.C.D, destination IP 192.168.2.100. Frame is untagged
The problem is at #5. Packet came back from the Web Server. RV180 properly NATed it to the local IP address. But it did not add VLAN tag.
I just recieved a new RV180 yesterday and it will not connect to my switch. Router was updated to the newest firmware, reset to factory settings. I did change the ip and ip range. Router works fine with one computer attached direct. As soon as I connect my sf300-24P to it, the WAN and LAN lights all light up and then go out. Only the WAN will light back up. I have no connectivity to the router. I plug the laptop to the router directly and no LAN lights come on and can not see the router with arp -a.
I'm considering upgrading a small business to the newly released RV180 or RV180W.Does the RV180 series support 6rd (IPv6 rapid deployment?).I see 6rd documented in the other small business routers (e.g. RV110), but I can't find it in the RV180 documentation.
I'm having issues getting QuickVPN to connect. I think it's an issue pinging the gateway but I'm not 100% sure. We are using Comcast Business, I have placed the RV180 in the DMZ. The setup looks like this: Internet -> Comcast router -> RV180 (DHCP) -> rest of network.
