Cisco Routers :: WRVS4400N Slowing Down 100Mb Internet Connection
Jun 4, 2012
I have a Cisco WRVS4400N on the latest firmware and I have just had my Virgin internet connection upgraded to the 100Mb. Once i thought it was upgraded i checked with a broadband speed test and it came back as 15Mb download and 5Mb upload. Before i rang Virgin i thought i'd check with a direct connection from my pc straight to the modem. Ran the speed test and it came back as 100Mb download and 5Mb upload. I thought the best thing to do is restore my settings back to factory and its still the same.
For eight months we have not had any problems with our new WRVS4400N (V220.127.116.11) connected to a Verizon/Westell 6500 to provide DSL internet for our network with DHCP on our server... No changes have been made to the router or modem since initial setup; but, then it started -- Our internet connection would drop intermittently. Sometimes every 5 or 10 minutes - sometimes every hour. Verizon has tested the lines which came up ok, then they sent a tech who changed the wire pair coming into the building for the DSL line and retested the lines which again came up ok, then they provided us with a new modem (now a Verizon/Westell 7500). After all that, the DSL still connects then disconnects intermittently. I am now wondering if the issue lies with the WRVS4400N.
FSD 7632-4 Router.Have this 2006 router which has started dropping the connection and/or slowing it down intermittently. Before I replace it, would like to update the firmware. Have downloaded the update but cannot log-in on the setup utility page as I cannot remeber my password (apparently it is not set to blank!).
I have a RV082 Linksys router and at the moment it is slowing down my internet connection by a significant amount. With the router, I get about 3 Mbps and with a modem directly connected to my computer I get about 24 Mbps. Before with the router I used to get 15 Mbps, which is understandable because it is connected to 4 computers total. Maybe my setup has something to do with it. I got a cable that is connected to a modem, the modem is connected to the router, from which one port is connected to a computer, and another is used to connect to a Netgear switch, which in turn is connected to 3 more computers.
Everything was fine until I went on a trip and wasn't home for about 2 weeks, and when I came back, this happened. I tried restarting the modem, the router and all to no avail. I also tried to do a factory reset on the router and again got slow speeds.
I have a Cisco 3725 running IOS 12.3. I have three WAN connections (2 x 100Mb and 1 x 2Mb serial) and I need to replace the 2Mb serial connection with a further 100Mb connection. However, I have not got any spare 100Mb sockets.My plan is to use a switch that supports VLANs, connect the three WAN connections to the switch, each in their own VLAN, then connect the switch to one port on the router, configuring the switch port as a trunk (so that it passes all three VLANs across the link) and configuring the router so that for that single Ethernet interface, it has three subinterfaces each configured for a VLAN that matches the VLAN used for the corresponding WAN connection.
I am a bit rusty on my IOS so I wanted to run this all past the community for feedback. [code] Any thoughts on whether or not that will work? Are there any commands from the original interface configurations that I CANNOT use when moving them to a subinterface? I'm thinking that the speed & duplex commands need to be removed?
I need trouble-shooting wireless network connectivity issues that arose recently:We use a Comcast modem and two WRVS4400N's as wireless routers/wireless access points.We recently got our comcast service upgraded to 100/20 and also got rid of our static ip address. As a result (I think there must be a sort of causal relationship here, but I'm not sure what it is) we can no longer connect to the internet using our wireless networks. We can connect to the wireless network, but have "No Internet Access."
We just purchased the WRVS4400N router with high hopes. For some reason, our ISP provides a connection through L2TP Dynamic for a static IP. I repeat, L2TP Dynamic. Is there anyway to properly configure the router to use such a connection method. I only see L2TP Static, which seems to be the standard method for many routers.
I am having some difficulties using RDP on the LAN of the router. I previously had a Linksys E4200 router, and I was able to RDP from my Win7 computer (192.168.1.139) to my Win2k3 server on the LAN (192.168.1.251) with no issues. However, when I replace the E4200 with the WRVS4400N, the connection will only work for a few seconds.
It is not exclusive to RDP connections on the LAN either... I get a similar error when attempting to connect to computers off site. I could see MTU's being an issue if it was over a VPN connection, but there is no VPN involved in this case.
I see a lots of problem associated with wirless connectivity with WRVS4400N, with following config
Firmware version - Firmware Version: V1.1.13 Wireless connectivity - G/N Mixed Auth - WPA2 AES Everything else default and AUTO,
Problem:The end devices suddenly drop connection. Wired connection works just fine. The DROPPED device can not be reconnected. On MAC I get AUTH time out. I see the SSID being broadcasted from my HTC wireless analyster so radio may not be the problem. I changed to set the speed to G only or N only but not avail. ONLY way to recover from this is rebooting the router.
I have a Samsung Galaxy 10.1 tablet and have bee trying to connect to my WRVS4400N router with VPN through the "on board" software as well as with the Any Connect software from Cisco. I have no issues at the moment using Quick VPN from my laptop.
When using the Any Connect software I receive the following messages:
Security warning: untrusted certificate AnyConnect cannot verify the identity of <IP address>. Would you like to continue anyway? - Certificate does not match the server name. - Certificate is from an untrusted source. - Certificate is not identified for this purpose [Accept] [Details] [Cancel]
If I select accept, the following error is received:
"Error: Connection attempt has failed due to server communication errors. Please retry the connection".
I have tried setting up the on board VPN with the Samsug Galaxy but every attempt has resulted in a time-out of the connection.
I want to know which router can be used on 100mb cable connectionThe router will be using the connection from cable modem on bridge mode/modem mode with eth to routerI kind of have a idea looking at performance ratings but ppl have mixed opinions when you enable NAT and ACLs etc etc285129013825.
So I recently got a new computer today and it won't let me use my 100mbps of internet bandwidth. (Asus Sabertooth Z77 with an Intel 82579v gigabit lan controller) I noticed that at the LAN connection properties>Properties>Configure>Link Speed tab the 'Speed and Duplex' option was on Auto Negotiation and it was only accepting (or supporting) the 10mbps Full Duplex. When I switched it to 100mbps Full Duplex it would mark my connection icon with a red cross and when I clicked diagnose it said "Please connect your ethernet cable or your cable might be broken". So I tested my internet speed with that same cable on a different computer (laptop) and it worked with 40Mbps, so I don't think the cable is broken. Also I just recently downloaded some drivers but one was specifically for the Intel LAN controller but I'm a total noob for all of this computer stuff I don't know if it messed it up or something. Is it the motherboard that's not working correctly?
I have a D-Link DSL-320B ADSL2+ Ethernet modem that connects to the internet fine if I am using just 1 computer. However I have bought a Cisco WRVS4400N to enable me to get all of the other computers at home on the network (wired and wireless).
The WRVS4400N picks up a WAN address from the D-Link BUT I just cannot get an internet connection, just "Local" only. I have tried setting it up as a gateway, as a router, upgraded the firmware but it just is not having it. My previous experience with routers has been just to plug em in and let them get on with it. The WRVS4400N is proving very troublesome.
When i try to active the Internet Access Police with Website Blocking by Keyword, the router WRVS4400N block any access to internet, the Access Restriction by time is disable. How i can active this feature without restrict all the access?
After updating the firmware of my WRVS4400N from V 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 all traffic was blocked for all machines, even some not included in the list of PCs. As the log was showing that all traffic was blocked by access policies, I disabled the only rule I had (blocking access to some sites to some MAC address list) and everything worked fine.I tried creating a new, simpler rule but after activation it blocked again all traffic for all the LAN.After many trials, I decided to roll back to the previous V126.96.36.199 which solved this problem.
I am trying to create an IAP for a single computer based on it's MAC address. I want to block certain keywords and websites 24/7. When I setup the IAP as number 1, I add the MAC address of the computer in question. I then Select Allow and choose Everyday and 24 Hours. I type in the forbidden domains and click add after each one. I type in the keywords and click add after each one. After I click on Save, all of my computers on the network lose internet access.
I have WRVS4400N VPN Version 2, firmware version 188.8.131.52
I recently purchased a WRVS4400N security router and have got a strange problem with it. I set it up as my main router and connected two computers (a desktop and a server) using DHCP. They both work fine, internet is as fast as it should be, no problems whatsoever. However, when I setup the Wifi SSID (whatever security options I use, same with open/wpa/wpa2) and connect my laptop to it. It is allocated a IP address and windows even says that there is an internet connection. As soon as I try to do anything though, I am dropped. Try to ping an outside server, failure and dropped. Open IE, failure and dropped. I cannot even access my local server connected by wire to the router.If I connect the laptop via a cable to the router everything works, and it continues to work when I unplug it. So this means that right now I walk over to the router and plug my laptop in for 3 seconds before I unplug it and then use the wifi for a couple of hours without any problem. But as soon as I try to turn on my wireless Logitech SqueezeBox or wireless printer, they fail and take my laptop with it..
I have:reset the router, used both firmware 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 and done a factory reset.Tried to move the router close to the laptop, no difference.
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.
you have a Cable Modem and are paying for 30MB/sec download or better service, but the network connection on the cable modem is only 10/100; all very common today.Your network connection is showing it's connected at 100 (computer - router - cable modem)....now on the technical side, remember that a 100 MB network connection can only transfer data at a maximum rate of 12.5 MB/sec (not something the normal home user knows or even thinks about).So here's the question; why would you pay for 30MB/sec download speeds when the cable modem itself can only transfer (in theory) 12.5MB/sec to you over the network?
I have a belkin N300 router that works decent most of the time, but anytime my roommate connects with her macbook pro the whole network becomes slow to the point of uselessness. If i block her computer using mac address filtering, the latency and download speeds are right where they should be, but as soon as i allow her back on ping jumps to 800-1000 and DL speeds drop to under 1mb.
At the recommendation of a tech, I ran a speed test (speedtest.net) on my system with my N600 in place. The upload speeds averaged out to 0.21mbps. I took the router out of the system and the speed climbed to an average of 0.37. What is the problem with the router and what need I do to boost the upload speed with it in place?
I live in Poland and my Internet supplier it's Polish firm UPC. It's DSL connection. I've got custom Windows Firewall and Norton Antivirus 2012. I used to have Norton Internet Security but I uninstalled it because of a presuppostion that my my problems could have been connected with it.My router: Thompson TWG870UG. My internet speed is high (60MB/s) so my problem is not related to that thing. I have Windows 7.The problem:I've got two notebooks. The problem is with the new one.Internet connection on the older never malfunctions. On the other hand my new notebook is a source of a problem. Despite quick downloading and good results of speedtests (30mb/s) the sites open really slowly. Neither can I watch videos (e.g. youtube) because they don't load. How should I proceed to fight this problem
For the past month, I've had constant lag spikes for most of the day. When I connect the modem directly to my laptop it works perfect no lag at all. When I use a router it lags badly. I've even bought a new router to see if thats the issue[CODE]
I'm using a Linksys E1500 on my Timewarner 20Mbs connection and I've noticed that anytime another computer on my network connects my connection speed take a significant drop. This happens when Macs or PCs connect and there doesn't seem to be any common ground between any of them. In addition the connection is slow wether the other PCs are idle or downloading anything, it seems to make no difference. my ping in any game drops from 70 to 500 just for 2 other PC being on at the saem time on the network.
-E4200 connected via Ethernet cable (100Mbs) to local ISP for internet access -E4200 connected via Ethernet cable (1Gps) to my desktop PC -E4200 connected via wireless (5Ghz with WPA2 personal) to my laptop
In general, everything works fine, I can download files from internet to my PC close to the maximum speed limit (80-90Mbs), the wireless connection goes up to 300Mbs and it can achieve around 10-14MB/s file transfer between PC and laptop.A lot of the time the wireless connection to my laptop is used for HD content streaming from the desktop PC. It works very well until I start downloading files to my PC with speed greater than 50Mbs, when the wireless connection speed drops very fast to about 500KB/s which results in interruptions on the video streaming. At the same time the router’s web interface reacts much slower than usual, as if the router’s CPU is overloaded.
I’ve read this follow up review on Small net builder url...and it’s clear that there are some issues when taking E4200 to the limit, but in my case it’s nowhere near that.
Over the past few weeks I have noticed that our internet has been running slowly, phoned ISP and did the usual tests and they discovered nothing wrong with line etc.I therefore started monitoring our small network and noticed when a user uploads files to the internet, even small ones, the internet connections slows down significantly. I obviously would expect some noticeable change, but this is almost killing the connection all together... pain for other users considering we're an web design coThe users are connected over a network using a Netgear JGS524 Switch, which is unmanaged. The router is a Netgear DG834N. We do have several users, a printer and a Qnap server connected to it... maybe all the activity is slowing the internet, but can't see why it would only start affecting the network in the last week?
My internet/gaming/netflix has been slowing down lately, some parts of the day there are no problems, other parts (4-10pm) its impossible. I live with one roommate, I have my own router and he has his own router. Mine is a Netgear router, not sure what his is. Ourinternet, with no problems is: 65ping, 4.8 mbps, and .60 upload. When its busy: 180ping, .30 mbps, and .09 upload. I constantly get kicked off xbox live and its super frustrating. The thing is, when my roommate is gone I am able to stream netflix in HD without any problems.However, when he's using netflix the quality of mine drops to the lowest signal and most times disconnects me from xbox live. I'm not sure if this is an ISP issue or a router issue
This problem only seemed to arise after messing with my MTU a few days back to 48 so I could play an online game with lower ping, but have since changed it back to 1500.Since then, my internet has been slowing down every 30 minutes to an hour and won't speed back up until I reset the router and the problem continues after that.I've fresh installed Windows 7, updated the Firmware on my DIR-636L, changed my DNS multiple times, unhooked my DIR-636L and have been only using my SURFboard SB6141 modem and the problem has yet to be fixed.I took a Netalyzer test and here are the results. I bolded the important stuff:
Major Abnormalities Your ISP's DNS server is slow to lookup names Minor Aberrations The measured network latency was somewhat high Network packet buffering may be excessive
I have ATT uverse Turbo max pro, I get direct connection to from the router 22mbs download and almost 3 uploadHowever I decided to place the router closer to my tv and PS3 rather than next to my computer... I hate nothing more than lag and I like the ethernet connection to my att uverse receiver rather than coax cable.Before I had a gigabit switch next to my tv and ps3 and apple tv, but I used to lag playing video games which is why I switched it. Now I have a direct connection with a 100 ft cat 6 cable from the router to my computer and now my computer is showing 7 mbs download. whether I use the switch or not My speed slows down significantly. I know that a cat 6 cable usually doesn't degrade until about 700 ft. So I'm really confused.Here is what I am usingAt&t 3800hgv-b uverse modem/ router3 cat6 7ft cables1 100ft cable5-port gigabit greenNet switch TEG-S50g2 PS31 Apple tv1 vip 2250 receiverhp pavilion dv7Even if all other devices are unplugged I still get only about 6 mb/s
I have cable internet with a speed plan in the 10-15 mbps range. I have a wireless Belkin g router that is several years old. Connected to the router I have my cable modem as well as my PS3. I connect wirelessly from my PC to the internet, as my PC is in the other room (more on that later). When I'm streaming movies via WiFi to my TV, the connection is highly unstable. Some days, I will not experience any stuttering (or very minor stuttering), whereas other times the stuttering is almost unbearable. Last night, I had trouble streaming a DVD quality movie whenever it went above 2 mbps total bitrate. Other times, I can stream HD movies without much stuttering (except for very action packed scenes).Interestingly, I stream Netflix movies over my PS3 via a *wired* connection. Last night, I conducted a speed test on my PS3. First, I had the PS3 plugged into the wireless router. I achieved speeds around 2 - 4 mbps on average. I then plugged my PS3 directly into my modem and achieved speeds around 10 mbps! The boost was instantaneous. I should note that on my PC, I speed test regularly over the WiFi and achieve around 4-6 mbps on average (only once did I achieve 11 mbps).
