Im on BT broadband, and have 2 phonelines in my house. the broadband was on phoneline A. However, to save money we shut down phoneline A and switched to phoneline B. However, the signal quality on B has dropped like a stone. The Downstream speeds are normal, but the download speed is 0.24, compared to the 2.05 it was before.
Yesterday i rang BT to tell about the problem, and after 30 minutes of 'checking' they decided to put our broadband on a higher profile? and reassured me that this would sort our problem. Our downstream speeds now read 0.13. Its made the problem a lot worse.
I am using a USB modem to go online when i'm not in a wifi zone.. The internet speed is very slow (512 kbps) so I configured my browsers to connect via proxy to boost the speed which is now (2 Mbps)..Everythings working fine except that I cannot connect to SSL sites, e.g Gmail, Facebook, Ebay.
Currently have wireless router to internet with pc's all connected in home network. Is it possible to put a cat5e/6 cable between two client PC's for a temporary boost in speed for for accessing shared files between these two machines.(i.e. 1Gbit rather than 56Mbit.)Both PC's would still want individual connections to the router and internet, but how do you make sure accessing shared files goe's through the faster ethernet cable rather than the router?
I am using Linksys wirelless G router, will my wired speed on desktop increase when I change to a wirelless N router for laptop and ethernet for wired desk top? I don't need anymore wireless speed but am wondering if I upgrade will my wired desktop pick up more speed.
The building Im in currently has Broadband fitted but was at a very low speed, I phoned my provider (SKY) who boosted the line but said we should be getting full speed as we are really close to the exchange.I live in a large building with 5 other people all using the net/xboxes. The guy at SKY pointed out that we were maybe not plugged into the main phone port. This was new to me as I assumed all phone lines into a building were evenly matched. I then searched the whole building and found (what I think to be as it has a dividing line like he mentioned on the front plate) the main phone port into the building. Unfortunately its on the very top floor.
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.
My company has 2 sites. Between them we have 100 MGB link. We do replication every day our data. Recently we had a issue on replication then we stopped about 20 replication. And now issue is fixed, we are started replication. Average replication is 75%, we need to reach it 100% ASAP. But me and my co-worker have little bit different mind about replications are running in same time. I thought there is no difference for total time between one by one and all running in same. But co-worker saying one by one is much quicker.
I have recently had problems with slow broadband speeds on my PC. I appear to be getting upto 2mbps when I should be getting close to 40mb. I have been in contact with Sky and they are now sending me a new router, but I now think its not a router problem because I put on my Sony Blu ray player which is connected to the router and loaded up a movie in crackle and its showing that im getting 28mbps & the Xbox 360 doesnt appear to be lagging with any speed issues.I have scanned PC with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware & Spybot - Search & Destroy and a virus scan with Avast which bring up nothing.Also upto a week ago i was using Microsoft security essentials but during a scan it stopped working and kept switching off. I am using Windows 8
i am using local area connection to connect for the internet and the connection spped is 2mbps and this speed is divided between the 10 users and the downloading speed for my system is slow when others are downloading any files so is there any trik to get the max downloading speed for my system.
i recently opened internet cafe,i have internet connection of 8mbps, and i have 6 computers, and internet speed distributes 8 mbps to per computer, i want to decrease this speed, i want to give 1 mbps to every computer
I have subscribed a broadband connection but as i was having a scientific atlanta modem. so i used the same to connect the internet. but the speed was very slow . when i complained the broadband provider they made the connection using motorola modem where they shown me the speed is near to 600-700kbps but when connecting using scientific atlanata modem the speed becomes 350-400 kbps.
How can i prevent my Vodafone usb stick device to enter in 3G mode when the network is very low usage or not at all. If i open google for example, it turns automatically on HSUPA mode with a better speed, but if im doing nothing after 1min or so it goes back on 3G more slower speed. So the 3G / HSUPA mode is auto switched depending on demand based on how much speed is needed at that moment. I am playing an online game and the network usage by the game when im inside playing it, is not in that range to trigger the HSUPA mode, and just stay in 3G causing me to have lots of lag, is there a workaround for this so when im playing the game to be connected with HSUPA instead of 3G? ( i was thinking about some kinda of slow trafic generator that generates a litle trafic continuously to trigger that HSUPA mode while im playing, but not sure if is possible and also not too much to affect my conection speed which is slow anyway on a mobile) You can see in the picture, the ping on google while its both modes, as u can see 3-5times ping increase while its on 3G.

I'm running a Cisco E4200V2 router with the latest firmware (22.214.171.12484) on an iMac running OS X 10.8. My ISP is providing 15Mbps to my modem, which I've confirmed by connecting directly to it without the router. Once I put the router back in the path, my broadband speed drops to about 6 Mbps. Is this the best I can expect from this router?
I have a wireless router that rests across the house next to the modem. The signal is too weak to reach to the other side of the house. Is there a way to boost the signal so I can get wifi from across the house or any other way to get an internet connection without several fifty foot wires going across the house?
I recently switched providers and now i'm down to a 1.5 MBPS download speed (advertised at 3 MBPS but our area is only serviced for half that) so I'm trying to find something that will smooth out the capabilities of my PC's with streaming videos and such for my nephew on sites like disney.com and other sites. I can post specs later if you guys need em but one PC which I know its issue, it is around 10 years old so I'm not expecting great performance. The knew one though is only a year old with 1GB DDR2 Ram and windows XP Home. The older one has 512MB Ram....I think its SD with windows XP pro. Again I can post full stats later if needed but not really trying to trouble shoot. More looking to boost. We run 2 computers and a Wii off our wireless modem. I'm curious if somehow the computers could be configured to operate on seperate...ports I guess to minimize the lag on the modem. We are noticing that if one computer is downloading something it cause the second computer to lag or makes streaming anything all but impossible.
I can never get consistent wifi in my home. I don't know if its because of the concrete walls with rebar inside them or what, but after two rooms I get literally zero wireless signal with my E3000 or WRT54G running boosted signals. Is there some router I can buy that just blasts the strongest signal possible?
My friends and me have been playing games on our laptops over adhoc networks for years now. However, we always have to be in the same room for it to have a good network coverage.
But as we all live in the same boarding house, the rooms can get crowded very easily. We tried playing in rooms next door to each other, but even then the connection was extremely bad.
I'm clueless in any wireless hardware such as routers, but I'm wondering if there is a device which I can plug my laptop to, and then it acts as the 'hub' of the adhoc network, being able to transmit & receive the signals much further out than any of our own laptops can.
I've expanded wireless internet using WDS: routers, but only with 1 boost.Is there a limit on how many times I can use WDS routers to boost a signal AND get ethernet connections out of the receiving side?
I know you can buy wifi boosters but have also heard you can use a hub to boost Wi-Fi? I currently have a bt home hub 2.0 and the spare hub is a netgear fs605uk (I think - it's the white one if you type this into google images).
