Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Slow Speed?

Apr 10, 2013

I bought the new E2500 Router about 5 months ago and it was great until one day the wilreless part would not give me any speed at all. I ran a wired test of the router and I would get full 30Mbps speed that I'm supposed to get. So after firmware updates and everything else I took it back and got another one.It has worked great for a month and today it's now doing the same wilress slow down issue. I can run a lan connected test and get full speed. But wireless is bouncing around at 5Mbps~13Mbps. No where near the 30Mbps I'm supposed to be getting. What is causing the wireless to bomb like this?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Speed Loss With New E2500?

Jan 16, 2012

I had to change from a WRT300N wireless router which died to a new E2500.  I noticed that the speed my computers report that they are connected to the wireless network connection is now 144.5 mps, versus 270 mps with the WRT300N.  There is no change in location of the devices or computers.  The computers use a WUSB300N adapter.  Is there a setting or setup that needs to be changed?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Cisco E2500 Wifi Bad In Speed

Sep 21, 2012

I have a Cisco e2500 dual band router.I have a cable modem pulling down 55mps.When I put it through my router I get 22mps wireless and 55mps wired. I want my wireless speed as fast as it can go!I have changed channels, I have gone with just wireless N I have done just Mixed. I contacted customer support and they won't talk to me since I am out of warranty (I just not got internet this fast).One small caveat - when I take the channel selection off auto and change to a preffered channel my one laptop drops connection a lot. We have two laptops and both get the same speed. (No I am not running speed tests with a bunch of other things running etc)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 - Getting Fraction Of Speed By Connecting Without It

Aug 19, 2011

I just bought an E2500 router, and am only getting a fraction of the speed I do by connecting without it. Both wireless and wired through the router I'm getting about 1 mbps, while without it I'm getting about 10 mbps.
I do live in an apartment, so I'd understand if there were some wireless interference going on, but would that explain away the wired issues too? I've also tried changing the channel (though only of the 2.4 GHz connection), and that's not working any.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 How To Get Reliable Connection And Speed

Feb 5, 2013

I just bought a new Linksys E2500 router from Best Buy and I need optimizing my router settings so I can get the absolute best performance out of it.  Staying connected and keeping speeds high are a must.I have been noticing connections cutting out at time.  It is frustrating when I lose my internet.we have ~3000 sq foot house... 3 levels (basement, first, second).We don't use all of these at the same time but we have: 2 laptops, 3 iphones, ipad, and a PS3 for online gaming.
How can I get the absolute best, most reliable connection and speeds out of my router so we don't experience disconnects?I bought the RE1000 range extender... having installed it yet because the install CD that came with it is the wrong CD (It came with the E900 install CD... which is for a router)I bought the N600 USB adapter which I guess is supposed to update your wireless card for your laptop. I am using that but bars seem low..

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Has A Slow Oscillating Signal

May 1, 2012

I upgraded my WRT54N to an E2500 in November 2011 and I am now having problems with a slow signal that oscillates according to  Results with the router are a ping of 300-500 ms and a wide variability on download speeds in a single test of 0.5 Mbps to 3 Mbps.  When I bypass the router my results improve to a ping of about 65 ms and a constant download speed of about 4.25 Mbps which is the extent of what my ISP can offer due to my rural location.  My network has two desktops (one Mac, one PC), an occasional MacBook Air, an occasional PS3 connection (though the variable signal has rendered the PS3 useless for online play), and my iPhone when I'm home.
So far, I have reset the router and ensured the latest firmware is installed.  I also relocated the router to another section of the house, thinking it may be experiencing interference.  Interestingly enough, I can unplug the router for 10 seconds, reboot it and it works great for about 30 seconds or long enough to run Speedtest a couple of times.  Then it returns to the same slow, oscillating pattern.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Getting Slow Throughput With FIOS Quantum

Aug 14, 2012

I've just upgraded to FIOS quantum service.  (50 MB down, 25 up).  I have a Linksys 2500 connected to the FIOS router.  The FIOS (ActionTec) router provides the full advertised speeds with any speed test service I try.  But with the 2500 connected to the FIOS router I get download speeds about 3MB. The MTU on the linksys is 1500.  It's connected correctly and is running it's own DHCP server.  (Why am I doing this?  I try to avoid the ActionTec routers, they have broken many services in the past.)The 2500 firmware is up to date.  I've tested on the wireless and wired (ethernet) interfaces.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 / Slow Connection On 2nd Computer (notebook)?

Feb 24, 2013

I'm using an E2500 router and an EA2500 adapter (to update my desktop from 802.11 g connection to 802.11n). I've connected my notebook to the network and the connection speed for the notebook is approx. 5.5 Mbps compared to 21.5 Mbps for the desktop connection. why the notebook connection is so much slower?I've just reinstalled both the E2500 and EA2500 tonight. I'm not sure whether or not there was such a vast difference in speed between the two before the reinstallation.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Connection Speed On Device Stays 72BPS

Apr 8, 2012

I did some testing with a few wireless N routers and then decided to buy a Linksys e 2500 as it was on a special for $66 in Australia.The wireless routers i tested were (Belkin brand new model / Netcomm & Dlink Used ones)1. Netcomm N800n Fastest wireless transfer speed 9MBytes or 72 MBPS.2. Dlink - Around 6MBytes/s or 48MBPS.3. Belkin - Around 4-5 MBytes/secDid not test the Linksys before buying it.4. Linksys E 2500 - around 5MBytes/s = 40MBPS.After all this testing, got a new Linksys believing that a cisco device should have good quality.My problems is that the connection speed on the device stays a 72BPS whereas on the Netcomm / D-link it used to be 130mbps. Not that this bothers me, however the file transfer speed matches the Link status connection speed.The router was placed at exactly the same location, file transfer was checked by transferring large file sizes.Lan setup is1. Belkin ADSL 2+ (Modem with Wireless b/g and Voip) only being used now as an ADSL Modem and VOIP service.2. Cisco linksys e 2500.3. Media centre PC which has a wired connection to linksys e 2500.4. Main PC (Connected wireless to the linksys). The network adapter is a DLINK DWA125 N150 adapter (2.4GHZ only). The distance between the wireless adapter and the wireless router is approximately 12 feet and there is direct line of sight.5. IPAD.5. Using 2.4GHZ as i dont have a 5GHZ adapter yet. Router is only on wireless N mode.I was better off using a second hand Netcomm rather than a brand new Cisco router. The cisco router has 4 internal antennas, whereas the netcomm one had only 2 external antennas. My signal strength is excellent. Only problem is the slow internal transfer between the Main PC and the Media Center PC. Main PC is Core i7 950 where as the Media Centre is a Core 2 Duo e6400GHZ with 4GB Ram. Both PCs running Windows 7 Ultimate (Main PC) , Professional (Media Centre PC). My network knowledge is decent.  Is there any settings in the advanced Wireless mode for the Linksys that can make my internal file transfers faster. [code]

Linksys E3000 Wireless-N Router Slow Speed?

Feb 25, 2011

I have FiOS and their supplied wireless router Actiontec #MI424WR. I have home theater equipment that uses the newer N signal so I purchased a Linksys E3000 Wireless-N Router. I have one of the LAN outputs on the Actiontec feeding the Linksys input and Wi-Fi turned off on the Actiontec. This is working good for my wireless home theater equipment but I am having problems with my wired speed. It has gone from averaging anywhere from 20 to 30 mbps on numerous test sites when plugged into the Actiontec to averaging around 10 mbps when plugged into the Linksys.

1) Is my wireless N speed going to top out at 10mbps or less since that is all the router is showing on wired? Shouldn�t N be broadcasting a faster speed if given the ability?

2) I have my computer currently plugged directly into the Linksys verses the Actiontec. This makes it easier to program the Linksys router. Since I am no longer using the wireless part of the Actiontec there really is no need to be plugged into it. Is there anything I can do get the speed higher on the Linksys, a setting I can change? Will I have to plug the computer back into the Actiontec to get the higher speed and then move it every time I may need to make a change to the Linksys?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Slow WAN Speed?

Dec 6, 2011

I have a problem with new E4200 WAN speed. I have 1Gb connection from my ISP, and my old Netgear router gives me about 350 Mbps WAN speed, but with new E4200 I only got 110 Mbps max download speed.Cisco live support tried suggested to change MTU from Auto to 1400 (and try different wlan channels, even that I don't use wlan). This MTU size change makes no difference with WAN speed. I have latest firmaware installed, router reseted several times,  tried different cables etc. Also with same cable sets my old Netgear still gives about 3 times better WAN speed.WAN port (and all LAN ports) seems to negotiated at 1000 Mbps at both ONT (optical network terminal) and Linksys settings page, but unfortanately there is no way to change the setting from auto to manual at E4200 settings (and it is not possible to change any settings of ONT by user). I was thinking that if somehow it won't auto negotiate properly (even if the setting page says its ok) but maybe it actually negotiated 100 Mbps port to WAN.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Speed Is Very Slow

Oct 21, 2011

I just purchased an e1200 wireless router.  Wireless speeds seem to be very slow.  I'm trying to transfer 1 file to my media server, and am only getting 221kb/s.  Also, internet connection seems to be slow as well (though if I plug directly into the router or the modem, I get speeds of 25Mbps, however when connecting wirelessly via the router I get speeds closer to 2Mbps (according to've played around with the settings as per other posts, and seemed to get the best speeds with the following config (however it is still very poor):

- security mode: WPA2 Personal
- network mode: B/G (have also tried N, which gave worse speeds)

The smile was big when I bought my new Linksys E2000 Wireless Router.
Unfortunately the smiled stiffened when I realised that the network speed did not meet the expected up to 300 Mbps for Wireless and x10 for a Giganet connection. What to do to improve the LAN speed to an acceptable level ?

* Linksys E2000 ; WPA2 (Personal)
* x2 Windows7 Laptop ; x1 Linux Laptop ; x1 Qnap TS-409 Pro
* Download speed WiFi (between laptops as well as from NAS) <2MB/Sec
* Download Speed Cable (between laptops as well as from NAS) <8MB/Sec
* Download speed with direct connection to NAS (without switch) ~13 MB/sec

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Internet Speed With WRT160N?

Aug 7, 2008

I've recently purchased a WRT160N router, and I'm using it in conjunction with a WMP54G wireless PCI card. I've set the router up to my requirements, and can get a stable wireless connection.. but internet speed seems excessively slow. While I'm able to get up to around 4MB/s transferring files over the network, running speed tests, it consecutively shows my download speed to sit around 400KB/s, whereas I'm able to get a steady 1.1MB/s on another desktop that is wired. Disabling the LAN adapter on that computer, and connecting via wireless, brings down the speed that that computer is able to get to around 400KB/s as well. Hence, I don't think it's my wireless cards, but something to do with the router itself.I'm also experiencing lag spike issues in online games, which I can only attribute to the current wireless setup, because I've previously had no issues with it. All relevant ports are forwarded, so that is not an issue.After doing some Googling on the subject, someone had suggested running SpeedGuide's TCP Optimizer, and changing the RWIN - I ran it, and set it to the 'optimal' settings, and after a reboot the wireless seemed fine - I was getting just a tad under what I should (about 950KB/s).. but after a short while, it just went back to 400KB/s. After further investigation, it seems that Vista automatically changes that RWIN value to optimize network traffic.. but I never had this issue with my old wireless gear, so I can only assume that the way Vista is reacting is based on the way the router is interacting with it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA3500 Slow WAN Connection - How To Speed Up

Dec 5, 2012

I have had a EA3500 router in front of a 3Mb ADSL connection for about 6 months.  This delivered essentially the same WAN performance as the WRT54G (v5) I replaced with it. Either router would get 2.4-2.8Mbps through a variety of speed test sites, inlcuding the CCC builtin speed test.I upgraded to a 10Mbps cable internet connection today, but the EA3500 won't deliver any more speed than with the old ADSL connection. The reason I am blaming the EA3500 is that if I plug my computer directly into the cable modem, I get a solid 9.9Mbps down/0.99Mbps up, which is exactly how my line is provisioned.   With the router in place and active, I get the same slow WAN connection, 2.8-2.9MBps, whether using a PC connected with GigE, a PC connected via Wireless-N, or with an iPhone. This all implicates the EA3500's WAN connection.
Is there anything that can be done do let the EA3500 work properly?  I upgraded my firmware today in hopes that that would change something.  But, I get the same speed with the latest firmware ( as I did with the previous version. Speed across my wired LAN is excellent; I can sustain 70MB/sec from my PC to my NAS.  It's only the WAN connection that is performing poorly.I can downgrade to the non-CCC firmware if that would make a difference; would it?

As soon as a switch over to Wireless my connection goes from 25mpbs/5mpbs to less then 2mbps down. I've reduced the MTU, and I've tried turning off QoS. Nothing seems to work
