Slower DSL Speed After Splice?

May 5, 2011

I have ATT DSL Extreme service and I actually get about 8.0 service. There is a POTS splitter in my box that splits this line out to my office about 75 feet away. I recently moved the office back into the main residence and rather than move the 8 pair wire ATT put in, I jumped it with a new wire back to my new office. At the POTS, I didn't see where I could add a line so I spliced the pair I needed. Now it essentially feeds either building. But, now my speed tops out at just over 7.0. I have to believe the splice affected the speed but I don't understand why.

Uploading Speed So Much Slower Than Downloads?

Jun 1, 2011

I was wondering why are upload speeds so much slower then download speeds with residential IPS. I know downloading is alot more common then uploading something. Does it cost more or something, for the ISP to send information out.

Cisco Firewall :: PIX 515e 2 ISPs Max Speed Is Slower With ISP

Apr 19, 2012

have a PIC 515e connected to two ISPs via 2 interfaces.  ISP1 is a 3.5Mbps aDSL line, and ISP2 is a 30Mbps business cable.  I've confirmed the speeds by connecting the cabled directly into a laptop and using wget to download very large files from known-fast sites.
For admin reasons, I need to access two specific subnets using the slower ISP1.  The rest of internet traffic should go to the much faster ISP2.
So I configure ISP2 as the default gateway, static routes for the two subnets to ISP1, set up NAT (PAT) and it all works like a charm.  I've confirmed that ISP1 is used for only the two subnets, and ISP2 for everything else.  CAPTUREs on the pix also confirm this.  So far, it all works great.
But for reasons I don't understand, my max. download speed is 3.5 Mbps (the slow DSL).  Using various speed tests and wget, I simply cannot get a download speed faster than my 3.5 Mbps DSL line.
Here is my config:
interface ethernet0 100full
interface ethernet1 100full
interface ethernet2 100full

Linksys WRT160N Router - Download Speed Slower Than Upload?

Dec 30, 2011

I am getting very slow download speeds on my wireless router (Linksys model#WRT160N). I measured it on with my ASUS laptop, ASUS Transformer Prime tablet, and 2 Ipod touches. All similar speeds.

Download avg: 1.30 Mbps
upload avg: 6.20 Mbps

I measured my desktop speed that is hardwired through the router to the modem.

Download avg: 30.00 Mbps
upload ave: 6.20 Mbps

I have scanned all the wireless connection in my area and found them to occupy channels 1, 6, 11. I tried changing my channels one at a time for all 11 channels. Some did a little better than others but not a lot.Also, if I by a dual channel router, can all wireless devices pick up on the 5GHz spectrim and if some, could this alleviate some interference?Is it possible that my router is going bad and a new single channel 2.4 GHz router will be fine?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1500 After Changing Name / Password / Speed Became Much Slower

Jun 24, 2012

After changing name and password, the speed became much slower. Checking it with speed test, download is just 0.19 Mbps while upload is 3 Mbps. Wired speed is much better, download is 20 Mbps. So it is not the problem of I provider, comcast. How to solve this problem? I rebooted and reset it already.

New PC Has Much Slower Internet Connection Than An Old Laptop?

Nov 12, 2012

I recently built my first PC:

OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1, 64 bit
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 58 Stepping 9 (overlcocked to 4.1)
Processor Count: 8
RAM: 16339 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670, -2048 Mb
Antivirus: avast! Antivirus, Updated and Enabled

But I have been having major issues with internet speed. I browsed through the forums and, as a result, updated my LAN driver with the latest driver for the Intel LAN Driver V17.3.0.0

I have the virgin media super hub with up to 60mbps download but rarely get over 20 and even then the download of webpages seems glitchy... on evenings it is terrible with 0.5 to 1.5mbps being the norm.The problem is also affecting Chrome which struggles to render maps and stream videos such as 720p videos on youtube even when I have a tested connection of 30ish. I usually resort to using Explorer, reducing videos to 360p or even 240p.I've reinstalled Chrome a few times but still no change.

What is going on??I also have an old Dell Inspiron laptop which works brilliantly with the fast internet - where the speed of the hardware is the only limiting factor.

Internet Got Slower Download But Upload Is Fine?

Oct 8, 2012

I am facing with internet download speed reduced to 1/4th (500kbps) of promised speed (2Mbps).

ISP: Tikona India Type: Wireless unit at roof connected to PoE and ethernet cable
OS:Win7 and ASUS Express Gate I am using the ISP for over a year and was happy but for past 1 month got issues.

The first service engineer came and changed the poer adapter, clipped the ethernet LAN cable. The AI NET 2 utility in BIOS showed the pair 1-2 and 3-4 are short. So second service engineer changed the cable, power adapter and router.

I hoped that things will get resolved but still the speed was slower so the enginner unplugged the LAN cable from my desktop and checked the speed in his laptop. He was getting 2.5Mbps. Then I checked in safe mode with networking and asus express gate but still got reduced speed from 500 to 600kbps.

I had a NIC replacement so tested with that also and got same reduced speed.

Cisco VPN :: 5510 Slower Internet Speeds While On VPN

Oct 9, 2011

I have installed a new ASA 5510 on our internal network as a termination point for our VPN connections. This ASA replaces the VPN termination on our outside ASA. I have setup a VPN group profile and enabled DTLS on the interface on this ASA. The only interface on this ASA is the inside interface. We have done speed tests while on the VPN from both devices. When connecting to the VPN on the outside ASA speed tests show download speeds between 5-8 Mbps and upload speeds of .80-.96 Mbps. When connecting to the VPN on the inside ASA speed tests show download speeds between 2-3 Mbps and .76 Mbps. When I run the "show web-session svc" command on both instances I see that the connection to the firewall on the outside shows that the protocol being used is DTLS however on the inside it doesn't show DTLS.
I think that part of the problem is that DTLS isn't being used. What can I do to improve my download speeds? Will the ASA use DTLS if the interface that is being used is the inside interface?

WRT54GS / Slower Internet Speeds On Wireless Connection?

Aug 17, 2011

I have two computers in the house both HP desktops, both run Windows XP SP3. The first one is connected to the internet by ethernet cable through a WRT160N router to a cable modem, the other is in another room ( about 20 feet away from the router with only one wall). The wired computer averages around 15-20mbps download speed while the wireless only gets about 7-9mbps. I've checked them both using and the results are always about the same, the wireless has about half the download speed of the wired connection. They both have .95-.98 mbps upload speeds. When my old router (WRT54GS) finally gave up I bought the WRT160N which is an N router, I haven't upgraded the network adapter in the wireless computer to N yet. My question is should I lose this much speed through the wireless connection or do I need to change the settings on the router or the wireless adapter?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slower Internet When Using The E2500?

Jan 31, 2012

I seem to have an issue when with my new E2500 router Version 1 (upgraded to the new fireware - today to elimate issues with that).I had RCN installed a 50MB connection today.When I connect directly to the Modem, I get almost the 50MB of the server, see link from the speedtest. [URL]. However, when i plug the ethernet cable from my Cable Modem to my Wireless Router I get around 15-20MB. Here is an example:[URL]. I know speeds can vary, but if i unplugged and rest within seconds i get my expected 50MB.The cable modem is in the living room, right next to the Wireless Router. I am situated less than 2 metres from the devices when I get results and have full bars.I've tried varying the MTU on manual and also enabled it to adjust as required.

Advent DT2410 Wireless Cut Outs - Tested Nearly Everything

Dec 21, 2012

I purchased an Advent DT2410 about a month ago from PC world. It came with Windows 8 OS a USB wireless stick and the following basic spec:

Intel® Core™ i5-3330 processor
Genuine Windows® 8
Memory: 8 GB
Hard drive: 2 TB

So initially brought it home, set it up and fired up connected to the internet perfectly fine with the stick. Then about once every 2/3 days, it would pick up no internet connection despite being next to the router and after 2-3 shut downs in a row would work again. When the connectivity icon was blank, I would go to trouble shoot it and windows 8 wouldn't do anything, not even attempt to detect the problems (bare in mind this PC is brand new).So I leave my home by my University and came back to my parents for Christmas. Lugged my PC back with me and set it up.So first I connected to the wireless no problems, loaded up my favorite forums and after image hovering over about 3 images the 4th would only load the top 3rd of the picture. Open up new tabs "Connecting" until:

A) Server would time out

B) Wireless would DC and then reconnect (before basically repeating the "3 image view")

C) Would work for a few hours (e.g. a streamed film) before screwing up again (rare)

So, reinstalled drivers, replaced the USB wireless stick (802.11n.) AND STILL problems problems problems. I then cleared the IP/TC stacks (I believe they're called) did it through the elevated command prompt and still nothing. So i'm using my sister's laptop to write this as my internet on my PC barely runs long enough for me to be able to check this page or download the program mentioned in the sticky.

Region : France
Model : TL-WR841ND
Hardware Version : V8
Firmware Version : 3.13.27 Build 121101 Rel.38183n

I am wondering if it is worth switching to OpenWRT firmware for my TL-WR841N V8.0 ..Has anyone successfully switched to OpenWRT Attitude Adjustment Release (12.09) ? If so are you happy with the features and stability provided ? I checked for the Gargoyle firmware, and t seems there are still some issues with TL-WR841N release 8.0 ... Therefore I am not considering this alternative firmware for now.

Linksys Wireless Router :: List Of Tested External Hard Drives For E4200?

Nov 13, 2011

The official List of tested USB storage devices for the Linksys E4200 is so short, and the fine print "If your USB storage device is not listed on the table, it is not guaranteed to work with the router" is very discouraging. Let's create the community-based list of tested External Hard Drives for the Linksys E4200? Post here the brand / model of your external hard drive which works well with your E4200. State Firmware version as well. My Toshiba 640GB Canvio® USB 2.0 Portable Hard Drive (Toshiba P/N e05a064cau2xr, M/N 593400-b), when connected to E4200 Firmware v1.0.03 (Build 14), stops the router's both wired and wireless connection after a couple of hours.

New Router Signal Slower Than Old One?

Jul 27, 2012

I previously had a Linksys WRT54G, before I upgraded to my new router I was getting quite good signals and my internet speed on my pc was ranging from 3.7 - 4.5 Mbpsfter upgrading to a Cisco Linksys E4200 based on the great Cnet ratings, my internet speed has plumetted to a range of 2.5 - 3.1 Mbps and the Signal Strength on my wireless connection has gone to "Very Low"I have checked the channels of the surrounding routers (using a software called network stumbler). I am using channel 1 which is not being used by anyone else.I am just surprised, I thought my speed and connection strength would sky rocket after getting such a good router.

Write To Nas Via Ethernet Slower Than Via Wifi

Aug 17, 2012

I have a Win7 64bit laptop connected to my home network by both 85 mps Netgear Powerline and wifi. On the network are mt BT Homehub router and an Iomega Home Media NAS. when trying to backup photo files (5+ mb) from laptop to NAS I find the write speed become so slow as to be unuseable via Ethernet.

Speeds (Mbps) obtained:
Write Read Connection
8.5 8.9 wifi
0.2 13.8 ethernet & wifi
0.2 14.5 ethernet

I have tried upgrading firmware (currently 2.040) but the NAS seems unwilling to do this. I have also reset the router -- all to no avail.

WRT54GS Computers Connected To Switch Much Slower

Feb 15, 2012

Basically, my home network is comprised of a WRT54GS Router which the cable modem and my main computer are plugged into (as well as vonage, networked printer). That leaves one port open which is used to connect a Dlink DES-1105 10/100 switch. I am connecting it using a crossover cable, though that was not necessary.I just noticed that a computer connected to that switch gets MUCH less download speeds at, and it gets STUCK on the upload test (doesn't even start).I unplugged it and plugged it directly into the router for testing. I get 20-30 megs down (like I should), rather than 5-11 like the switch gave me (ONCE the switch gave me over 20, not sure why..)The upload test NEVER runs though. I've tried different computers as well. I tried setting the computer to "100 full duplex" manually and no luck.

Cisco WAN :: 2651XM - Slower Network Routing Only With OS X

Aug 4, 2012

We have a Cisco 2651XM at the edge of our network, which routes our public IP block. This sits on a 100 Mbit/s ethernet pipe (full duplex) up in the datacenter.  We are also running 100mb full duplex on our our side of the network.  We have several public servers behind the router. 
We have recently set-up a new Apple OS X Lion Server to serve a few websites.  However, when downloading some files from the server the from a remote location, I noticed I can only get a maximum of 15 Mbit/s out of the connection. 
When downloading a large file over HTTP (Apache) from this OS X Lion  server from another server on the same internal network (behind the  router), we get a full 100 Mbit/s transfer speed.
However,  when we download the same file from anywhere on the internet (external  side of the router), we can only manage to get 15 Mbit/s out of the  transfer.
However,  we also have other Linux & Windows servers that we can achieve a  full 50 Mbit/s (our office connection speed) externally under the same  network conditions.
So it  also appears it's only for a single connection - not a limitation for  the whole server.  If I open two HTTP connections, I can get say 15  Mbit/s out of each transfer - totalling 30 Mbit/s... if that makes  sense.
Update: I also notice slower ping latency when pinging from outside the network. Most of the servers reply in 15ms while the new OS X server usually takes over 40ms on average.
