2 pcs connected with a TPlink modem/switch. wired connection.One pc running win7 64, other xp sp3. Both home pcs..Used to get about 10mbs transfer speed. ( I know its low, but was more than happy with it as I never use it to transfer large files.But suddenly transfer speed changed to just 8kbps. Its kind of a speed limit activated.I can just browse files and folders but cannot copy at 8kbps.
A few days ago I sent my ISP an email and a few days later they called my house and talked to my mom about the support issues I had addressed with slow speeds. They directed her to www.att.com/speedtest and our internet speed was reading 6MB/s down and 512kb/upload as it should be.The problem is, outside that test I am not seeing the performance. Let me put it to you like this, right now the internet is so slow that Speedtest.net consistently gets errors when trying to connect for a test. Any website that isnt text based like say Reddit, takes ages to load. Youtube videos? Streams? Forget about those, 240p buffers as slow as 720p.When I finally manage to get Speedtest.net to do a test after numerous internet resets I barely crack 1MB/s down IF AT ALL, and .12kb/s upload IF AT ALL.
Its maddening. Its actually affecting my siblings college work as their online tests have been failed due to disconnecting.Something I should have mentioned earlier is that I do have a router. Its a Linksys WRT54GS with the latest firmware. Something that is also annoying is that when I plug my internet directly into my computer, it wont work, but if its plugged through the router it works just fine. This has never happened and its making me draw a blank.AT&T support suggested the we upgrade our Modem to one of the newer ones that are a modem/wireless router combo which we plan on doing. Right now we have a Speed stream 4100 that weve had since we got the internet in 2006 and I guess they don't even make them anymore.
2 days ago I turned on my pc, went off to the internet and boom. It's slow. I thought that maybe its about my provider. No it's still slow. Weirdest thing is that my torrent dl speed is still about 100kbps. But when i want to download something with my browser(s), speed is just about 20kbps. And surfing on the internet is slow too. I'm using windows 7 32-bit. And i use wired connection. And since I have XP installed aswell, I tried the internet there. I was having no problems with it there. But I use win 7 and I need this problem fixed. I have even scanned my pc for viruses. Nothing.
When I bypassed the router and connect my pc to the cable modem directly, my download and upload speeds are over 20mbps/10mbps. But when I connect my cable modem with the router, it reduced dramatically to under 10mbps/5mbps.So the bottleneck is with the router. How can I troubleshoot the router to remove this bottleneck?
So I have a docsis 3 modem and I have been running PERFECTLY before i decided to upgrade my 655's fw. silly me right? well i cant tell you what i was running previously but i downloaded the latest from d-links site and now ever since my newgroups downloads speeds have dropped from 3-7MB/s to a steady 400-600kb/s.
I have tried everything using different ports and server ip for newsgroup. I have DMZed my ip i have switch wan ports. QOS off. all traffic shaping off. what kills me is that sometimes through the router itll give me my usual regular amazing speed but most of the time NOT. As soon as i remove the router out of the equation i get my speeds no question asked ( yes direct connect to router not wireless).
I got several issues with the E4200.First of all, my connection speed dropped from 2megs/sec to 100k/sec with that router. Flashing it with the lastest firmware worked but still, I don't get all my speed as I has with my WPG54GS (with DD-WRT).Second, speed is really unstable, like if it was working by burst of data.Third, I got a gigabit port on my computer, plugged in the router and still, I can't make more than 10megs/sec WIRED (!) between my computers. I desactivate the ipv6 from my network card but still, no luck.
I've recently subscribed to a 100Mbps fibre broadband service with the bundled Huawei EchoLife HG8240 ONT modem and speed-tested it with an achievable speed of almost 100Mbps (uplink and downlink) on my desktop PC.However, when I connect my new Cisco Linksys E1200 Wireless-N Router to it, I noticed the speed dropped by almost half (about 50Mbps both ways) when I conduct a similar speedtest .
note that I'm using wired cable and there's only 1 single PC connected to it and it is not shared. This includes upgrading the firmware to the latest version, disabling the IPV6 setting and configuring QOS.My current hardware/ firmware version is as follows:
The computer in question is one of 30 computers in the same office that is not currently experiencing this same thing. All connected though the same switch, patch panel, etc. Testing has proven that the switch and line is fine.We have a server set up for all of the multifunction printers on property and we simply map the printers through this unit.We have an exchange server for email.File server... for... files. Okay, here is the situation. This IBM desktop will be connected to everything, able to print, email, connect to files, etc etc.Then, or so it seem, will just lose its connection. no email printing etc. She is asked to put in her network credentials again. and usually this works. (it seems that the network dropping out may take up to 3 minuets to fully restore and she tries to put in her credentials too soon).After each event she is able to restart her computer or type in her credentials and get back to work.. after mapping the printer again.
I'm having big problems with my Linksys WAG320N. I'm pretty clueless when it comes to networking.Without changing any of the settings, the other day my Macbook Pro couldn't connect and it kept saying 'Connection timeout'. From that point my iPhone also refused to connect, although accessing the internet on my MBP via Ethernet was fine.
I did a hard reset following instructions from this forum then re-configured with the installation CD. The wireless LED on the router was lit but my MBP couldn't see the network. Eventually I managed to connect after rebooting my laptop, and enjoyed all of 10 minutes of problem-free of wireless internet connectivity before the network just dropped out and now doesn't show up in my list of networks again, although the wireless LED is still on. Connecting via Ethernet still works, just not via wireless.I've rebooted my laptop and the router and tried switching channels on the router, all to no avail.
We are having some issues between our (2) Windows 2003 Storage servers and Windows 7 client machines. The issue that is occuring is that the users indicate they temporarily loose network connection to their mapped drives on these servers. This may happen several times a day. The regional manager wants to say it's a network issue but I believe it's something b/t the server and workstation.I like to know if there are some additional parameters, debugging or configuration that might be recommended to perform on our (4) Cisco 3750G-48port POE switches (stacked) that would determine that it's not a network issue. I do not see any errors or collisions on the ports that the servers are connected nor am I seeing much of anything wrong with the user ports. There are only 3 vlans at this office, vlan 30=users, vlan 20=servers, vlan 40=mgmt.
I have a strange error on my home network that I cannot find a solution to.I have an Huawei SmartAX MT882 from TalkTalk acting as a modem connected to a D-Link DSL-G624T acting as a router/switch. Connected to the D-Link I have a Windows 7 Pro machine (64-bit, SP1) and an XP (home i think) machine (sp 2 i think).The SmartAX modem is set up to perform DHCP and DNS relaying and the D-Link has DHCP turned off and DNS relay turned off.The Win7 machine can access the network, get an IP address and access the internet without problems, regardless as to the status of the XP machine.The XP machine can access the network, get an IP address and access the internet with no problems ONLY of the win7 is powered up. When the win7 machine is off, the XP machine seems to drop about 25% of the ping packets between it and the D-Link router and has no internet access (because of this i assume). [code]
I setup a network to run my business three years ago. It consists of 7 computers, an HP Media Smart server, three Netgear GS 605 v 3, where I connect the computers, router and printers.The server is only used as a file server and runs the backups. However, I also put together an Access database which has a front end on each computer and a back end on the server.Reading data from the database on some machines is terribly slow at times, 30 seconds or more for a response, but other times it is almost as quick as you can type.We are a lot busier now so do I need to upgrade hardware or do I have a problem. For example, my machine is just a Vista machine and writes to server at 60Mbps and reads at 21Mbps, two other Windows 7 machines write at 70Mbps but only read at 3Mbps. If I look at the Status of my Local Area Connection Status, its speed is 100.0 Mbps yet the Netgear states 10/100/1000. I have concluded that I need to change the network cards in the computers, but I don't know if I am correct.
Is there a way to monitor network traffic speeds. Our companies network download speeds seem to start high, but then progressively slows to a near stop.Downloading small documents start out fast and finishes, but I noticed that the speed slows down significantly. This poses a problem when downloading larger files and documentsThe speed start out very high, but then slows to near zero and results in the file failing to complete.What i need is to find out what is causing the speed degradation and or where our bottleneck is. Is this a setting issue with the browser, security, etc.
I got a wireless network in my flat On this network is a laptop Pachard Bell EasyNote TK and a self build desktop. Both with Windows 7 I pay for broadbandspeed 50/5 and up to a week ago it was ok.But suddely the broabandspeed on my desktop was only 20/5.I have used all the ad/virus software.I have run wireless.exe on my desktop and here is the report.
I have upgraded my network service from 2M to 6M per month last week. But the network speed is not so satisfactory. I could hardly feeling its upgrading.Is there any trustful and accurate method or tool to test the network speed?
every devices on my network started having really slow speed. It takes long time for each to navigate thru sites. Normally every device gets around 20-25 MBPS in the network. And i have desktop, laptop, iphone, tablet on the network. I've been trying to fix this for whole day yesterday and today and no luck.how to fix this?.I ran some things from this site and the results are here.
The Setup On my home network, I am running Windows Server 2003 as domain controller and file server with a SCSi attached disk array.I have several client PC's. 2 running Windows XP service pack 3, 1 laptop running Windows 7 Service pack 1 and a desktop also running Windows 7 Service Pack 1.These are connected by 2 switches - 1 x Netgear gigabit switch, and a Linksys PSUS4 USB Print server at 100mbps.The PC I use the most is the desktop running Win7 and transfer files to the server.After transferring some large files from the clients to the server, I noticed that the speed was considerably slower than what I was expecting it to be. After investigating, and eliminating elements of the network, I discovered that the Server NIC was running at 10mbps. I tried the usual things like forcing the NIC to run at 100mbps Full Duplex but this had no effect. Strangely, if I reboot the server while the desktop is still switched on the connection goes back to 100mbps. However if I reboot the desktop, or even alter the network settings, it immediatley reverts back to 10mbps.
I am currently receiving 2.9 Meg download using my Intel 82578DC Gigabit though my Local area network can receive a maximum of 100 Mbps. I am with a network service provider that can give me a maximum of 38 Mbps. What defines the maximum speed I can download at if I am receiving 38Mbps from my supplier though my Network connection driver is only allowing me to download at 2.9Mbps?
I did a network test with Passmarks Performancetest. I'm running a 10/100 network with all devices connecting at 100Mb. On Performancetest there are 2 tests to run for Network speed, TCP and UDP. The TCP speed test came back with an average 62000kbps (7.5Mb), and the UDP was 89000kbps (10.8Mb). As I'm running a 100mb network, shouldn't the results of been higher?
I recently finished setting up my home network, here's the setup, modem > Wireless Router (DIR-655) > 1st Switch (ZyXEL GS105B) > hard wires throughout the house (which got messed up by the previous owner of the house) and from those hard wires, in one room I have an E3000 set as Repeater (DD-WRT) which has 1 desktop connected to it through hardwire then in living room I have another switch (ASUS GX-D1081/V2) for HTPC, TV, PS3
My ISP has increased the speed on their link on my side I got a new cisco 887. I replaced 877 with Cisco 887 and copied all the configuration from Old cisco 877 to new Cisco 887 Router.Now My users can connect to the servers and which are in main office (remotely) and they can access internet everything is fine.
The only big problem is Users are complaining Network is very very slow.Do I need to change any settings on my new router? [code]
I have a small network of around 5 PCs,I have 8MB shared connection from ISP,so when I run speed test check from one of my PC it returns around 1.76 Mb download and 0.07 Mb Upload Speed,if I connect one of the PC directly to modem and run the test again so can I get 8MB of speed?
why one of my two offices experiences significantly slower speeds when accessing the web. I'm a complete technology simpleton, so I haven't been able to figure out a logical reason for it. Here's the scenario:
Office 1..................................................Office 2 ==========..........................................=========== Comcast Business.....................................Comcast Business tests at 33 mbps down..............................tests at 7 mbps down tests at 6 mbps up....................................tests at 3 mbps up 6 CPUs access Linksys SR216 10/100 switch..6 CPUs access 3Com Office Connect Ethernet Hub switch accesses Comcast modem.................hub accesses Comcast modem
My laptop, and all other CPUs, perform significantly faster at Office 2.
Is it the difference between the switch at Office 1 v the hub at Office 2? I always thought they were sort of the same thing. I know I've taken some of the cables out of the switch in Office 1 and put them directly into the Comcast Modem and haven't seen any improvement.
Why on earth does my laptop perform so much better at Office 2. I've also moved desktops to Office 2 and they are noticeable faster at that location as well. I'm stumped. We access a major company's web site for account servicing, and it is twice as fast at Office 2...while using the exact same laptop.
When connected to my router on my main desktop, I get download speeds of about .3-.85 mbps, I have comcast and a linksys N router, as well as a N wireless adapter in my desktop. If I use my laptop, I get around 10 mbps download speed, (Speeds are as of [URL]) but they still remain at .3 mbps on my desktop. I have tried two different wireless adapters in my computer. One is the Linksys AE2500 Dual Band N adapter, and the other is an ASUS N13 N Adapter. I have gotten the latest drivers of both adapters, but speeds stayed very low. When I connected the computer via ethernet cable, it ran at 16mbps. So I think that something must be wrong with some wireless settings, since I've tried 2 different adapters and was getting the same result, unless both were faulty I suppose. I also don't think it's my router's issue, because the wireless is working great on other wireless devices. I am using windows 7 on the desktop.
First discovered this problem because I was unable to connect to a particular web site that was functional according to a friend that I was talking to on the telephone while trying to connect.
Problem: Network UPLOAD speed is randomly reduced from 2Mb to 600Kb while download speed seems unaffected (Abt. 30 to 50Mb). First eliminated the router, modem and cables as suspects working with ISP tech support. CAT 5 cabling to router and cable modem. Then I discovered that another machine on the network did not have this problem. I then discovered that disabling the network and re-enabling the network cured the problem.....temporarily. Downloaded and installed latest NIC driver from MB web site. No solution. Downloaded and installed latest NIC driver from Realtek web site. No solution. Updated MB BIOS. No solution.
MB= Asus M5A97 EVO CPU: AMD FX-4100 OS: MS Windows 7 Professional 64-bit SP1 (Latest updates) RAM: 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 802MHz (11-11-11-28 NIC on MB Realtek PCIe GBE
Disabled TCP/IPV6. No solution. I suspect it is one of the "Advanced" settings for the Realtek PCIe GBE, but I don't know what they do. Anytime I disable and re-enable the network adapter my upload speed returns to normal. I haven't been able to isolate a particular action that causes the slow-down. The attached pics show speed test, before and after disable - re-enable network adapter. Same server.
I have connected my Vista laptop to my old XP laptop using a network cable so that I can share files, printers, etc freely.I have forgotten the correct proceedure for doing this, although the two computers eventually, after a long time link up and I am able to share files. I have done nothing else. I have not entered numbers or anything. The number spaces are blank.I do not understand why it is working at all, but how do I speed up the connection?
