Gigabit Switch Slowing Down Internet?

Oct 20, 2011

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

Internet Temporarily Slowing Down?

Jun 13, 2012

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

Internet Slowing When Using Router?

Jun 18, 2012

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]

Uploads Slowing Internet Over Network?

Aug 1, 2011

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?

Internet / Gaming / Netflix Has Been Slowing Down Lately?

Jan 15, 2013

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

Internet Keeps Slowing Down After Multiple Resets?

Dec 31, 2012

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

Home Network :: Wireless Router Significantly Slowing Down Internet?

Sep 19, 2011

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).

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WAG160N Slowing Speed While Connecting To Internet

Nov 29, 2011

A few weeks ago my internet speed suddenly became slow. Not so slow you can’t do anything without having to wait half an hour, but significantly slower than usual, and it also has occasional drop-outs. It can’t be an issue with the computers connecting to the router, which it’s doing fine as I can access my router’s setting though the IP address, but with the router connecting to the internet.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Slowing Internet Down But Fine When Directly Connected To Modem

Jun 9, 2011

I have been using my DIR-655 for about 2 weeks now with Road Runner wideband services. Starting yesterday my internet became very slow and I discovered the cause was the router. I tried resetting it to factory settings and things will be fine and run smoothly for about 5-15 minutes but after that it goes back to being extremely slow. My speed tests would go from 10ms (normal) to 250-450ms. Before this issue occurred the Dlink was perfect, had full speeds. I am running a wire Ethernet connection.

I am currently using revB and tried upgrading firmware to 2.01NA which had no effect, but make my internet seemingly go back to normal for the first few minutes then nosedive again. I have also changed my speed/duplex settings in Network Config to 1gbs Full Duplex. I've also disabled QoS, and still no change. Not sure what else to do. When directly connected to the modem everything seems fine. The modem is also the provided Motorola SBG6580 which I have called Time Warner to set the modem into bridge mode and have the DIR-655 connected to it.

Linksys Wired Router :: RV082 Slowing Down Internet Connection

Jul 14, 2011

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.

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.

Add Gigabit Switch To My Network?

Mar 2, 2013


I assume I have done everything correctly but am not getting any speed increase when transferring files (in fact it has dropped a little) I currently get about 7.5mbps between my computer and my server. All are wired connections.I have the modem/router connected to the Gigabit switch and the switch is connected to my server and a PC. Slight complication is I use 200mb homeplugs to connect from the switch to the PC, the server is connected straight to the switch, also I am waiting on some cat6 cables I've orrdered I have no idea what I'm using...

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Internet Speeds Slowing Down When Wifi Enabled

Jun 27, 2011

I have both the WRT54G and a E1000 wireless routers and this problem is occurring for both of them.I use AT&T DSL and the speeds are fine when it is :

1. Not plugged into router

2. Wireless Network Mode is disabled through the router configuration page, having all devices wired.
However when wireless network mode is enabled, speeds drop significantly, 15~17 ms ping goes to 250~800 ping, and download speeds are way lower also. When the router is reset, the regular speeds will return for maybe 30 seconds to 1 minute, then it'll drop back down. I'm positive there's no outsiders connected to my network and this problem still occurs, only when the router is giving out wireless signals. Sometimes the problem randomly goes away for a while but it will always come back. I've tried many things, firmware upgrades, factory restore, none of them seem to work, the only solution so far has been to disabling it, but I need it to be on as there are other devices in other rooms of the house that need WiFi to connect to the internet.

Using Netgear Gigabit Ethernet Switch Instead Of Router?

Jan 7, 2011

So my old router needed replacement and my dad bought a Netgear gigabit ethernet switch instead of a router. It said that it gets 1Gbps when I look inside the local area connection speed. The problem was we tried to use it like a router but only 2 computers could connect to the internet at one time but it was indeed noticeably faster when it came to video streaming speed. We since returned it and bought a Netgear N600 router that says the speed is 300mbps but like my old router it shows the speed is actually 100mbps and the streaming is good for the most part but every now and then slows down. Would using the ethernet switch with our new router work with streaming speeds and connection stability and of course let more computers connect and also use the routers wireless.

Possible To Use Gigabit Switch At Full Speed With A 100 Megabit Router

Apr 15, 2012

I am currently connected to my router via a 100 megabit cable (the router port itself is either 100M or 1G, I can't remember). There are no free ports on the router, but I want to connect additional computers to the network. If I get a gigabit switch and connect two of my PCs to it using gigabit cable, can they communicate at gigabit speeds, or will they be limited by the 100M connection back to the router? (In other words, does traffic between two computers on the switch have to be sent through the router, or not?)

Asus RT N16 - Would Fast Ethernet Switch Slow Down Gigabit Networking

Nov 4, 2011

I have setup an Asus RT n16 with 3 computers that support gigabit ethernet and a media server on one floor. On the other floor I have set up a fast ethernet switch (connected to my asus router) which is connected to several fast ethernet enabled computers.

Would the fast ethernet devices slow down the entire gigabit networking to 100mbps connections on my floor - similar to how a wireless n network running at 300mpbs must slow down to 54mbps when a wireless g device is connected to it?

Modem To Gigabit Switch To E1200 Wireless Router For DHCP?

Oct 4, 2012

The first part, is this even possible? Modem to switch.

Second part, e1200 router plugged into switch, handles DHCP for the switch.

Plug gigabit computers into the switch, non gigabit/wireless devices into the e1200 router.

If e1200 can't handle DHCP for the switch, could I configure a DHCP linux server directly to the switch?

I don't want to limit my network to my e1200 speeds when I have a gigabit capable modem and a gigabit capable switch.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT320N Used As Simple Gigabit Switch?

Dec 4, 2009

I've been using WRT320N few days now and I am happy with it so far! It's not overheated as many people reported and performance is also great (wifi as well as gigabit ports). I tested all functions (NAT, Advanced Wireless Settings, Port Forwarding, Access Restrictions...) - all working great, but I am little stuck on the easiest one - configure it temporarily as regular gigabit switch with an IP address: I put my WAN cable and LAN cables in the 1-4 ethernet ports. NAT, DHCP and Firewall are disabled in the router. I have DHCP server in my network that is assigning IP addresses based on MAC address. In "Setup" > "Basic Setup" > "Router IP" I would like to set up automatic configuration - DHCP, but it is not possible, so I just type the same IP address that It should get from the DHCP server (in this case Does all 1-4 ethernet ports have the same MAC address (in this case 00:25:9C:4D:16:86)? Everything is working fine, my computer's IP addresses are succesfully assigned (as well as wifi devices) from DHCP server in my network, but I feel like WRT320N's address is not assigned - the problem is I can't connect to router's administration under There is no IP restrictions for remote management.

Cisco Switches :: WAP4410N Set As Repeater And Not Connected To Gigabit Switch

From the broadband modem/router connected with a  Gigabit 8 port unmanaged switch.  Then, one WAP4410N is connected to the switch, wired connection for a distance of 90 meters.  WAP4410N is set as an access point to the area.  Then the second WAP4410N will be run as a repeater to the first WAP4410N.  My question is that, can we set the second WAP4410N as a repeater, without the need for it to be connected to the switch via ethernet cable.
