Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Cause Internet Speed To Slow Down
Jan 19, 2013
I came home yesterday and my Internet was really slow. I later found out that it was due to my Linksys E3000 because if I bypass my E3000 and go directly to my cable modem, it work just fine.I tried reconfigure, update firmware, factory reset and none of these has worked.
My Cisco E3000 has slowed it's Ethernet speed so slow that it times out when going to Facebook, YouTube or any site that is complex. It worked fine until one day it just gave up. It's connected to DSL Modem with Ethernet To a Apple Mac G5 power PC There are two other older macs connected via Ethernet, same problem. When I took the router out of the chain, and connected G5 directly to modem, normal internet speed. My firmware is up to date. Both wireless bands work great. When I look at Cisco Connect, everything looks normal. factory settings.
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?
I have a E3000 router and I want to slow the upload and download speed to my Xbox is there any way to do this thru the router settings. I have internet that is about 20-30mbps down and 2-3mbps up I want to slow it to about 5-6mbps down and 1-2 mbps up.
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.
I just bought a Cisco e1200 router... and the wireless connection is way too slow, when navigating through the web, but when using speed test, the connection seems fine, but still it even takes more than usual to open simple pages, lets say Google... i usually watch streams and now that i cannot do... when i connect directly i can do everything as usual...as i have read, i change channels, but still no improvement, i have the latest firmware, on my range there are only 2 more available connections... i even tried disabling/enabling the WMM... We all know that having extremely slow internet must be the real "Mayan apocalypse"
I have a Arris DLS with 12 Mbps Download and when I Connect my laptop directly I get the same speed as 12 Mbps but when I do the speed test with my linksys I get only 5 Mbps. How to upgrade to the new WRT54GL or WRT54GS?
It seems like after a certain amount of time, maybe a few days... my E3000 gets slowww.. I'm talking dog slow. And it's not just the internet, I have a media server connected to it, and usually when I put something on it, the transfer rate is about 3.5MB/s (not bits, bytes). But everything is slow, I top out at speed of maybe 1/6 normal on the internet as well.
My internet speed is usually instant when browsing online or gaming. At the moment it takes me 2 minutes just to load Google. So far I have been able to rule out a few reasons for this slow speed.It's not my ISP (Which is Comcast). My brother and my dad have fast connection and they are hooked up to the same router. (It has always been like that). I think it's not the router or the modem because my family's other computers are doing fine. It's not my wireless link because I jacked my brother's link and installed the software on my computer for it and the slow internet still existed.
I have a Linksys Broadband Router.Linksys Broadband Router RT31P2 Router - 3-port switch (integrated) - EN, Fast EN.I have a D-Link Wireless Router hooked up the broadband for our wireless internet connection.D-Link Wireless 2.4GHz (802.11b) Router.I have a Netgear WNA1100 Adapter for the Internet Connection. WNA1100.The Dlink router is hooked up to Linksys as well as the Direct TV DVR and the Motorola Modem.It started when I was playing League of Legends Saturday Night when I started lagging because of my bro's download.
I've had the E3000 installed for several years and a few days ago saw my download speed drop by 80%. Trouble shooting with the Cable provider ended up with connecting directly from the PC to the modem and the speed issue was corrected. I don't see any recent changes in firmware, no new programs.
So I've had this problem before and normally I solve it by simply unplugging everything from my modem and router but ive tried that this time several times to no avail. The internet suddenly cut out one day and when I did my usual unplugging thing it came back unbearably slow.Right now I'm running off a motorola SB5100 Surboard modem and a linksys WRT54G2 router and its not my computer, everyone in the house is getting terrible speed.
I've got a 2 month old e3000 with the latest firmware. (1.04 i believe) I have run speedtests from wired and wireless machines on my network. All of the wired connections show a speed of around 15Mps (which is consistent with my providers guaranteed speed) but when I test any of the wireless connections I get somewhere between 3 and 7 Mps. I get the same degradation in speed when I stand directly next to the e3000.
Other then SSID and Passphrases I have everything set to the default settings. I have rebooted multiple times with no change. The e3000 is mounted on a 2x4 with several feet of clearance all around and is also located in the coolest part of the house. I am using Speedtest.Net for all the tests.
I am running an E3000 router with 1.0.04 build 6 Dec 6, 2010 firmware. I have two computers on a wired Gigabit LAN and others on WiFi (802.11g). At first, all works well and I get normal throughput via the WiFi computers.However, after about a week, WiFi speeds crawl to a fraction of what I normally get (from 12-13 Mbps down to 1-2 Mbps and from 4.8 Mbps up to less than 1 Mbps). My cable modem service is 40 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up (I get 38.9 down and 4.9 up via the LAN based computers)
How I resolve this? I need to reboot the router! Once it comes back on-line, my throughput on WiFi is restored UNTIL the following week where speeds are back to a crawl. While WiFi crawls, the LAN based computers still enjoy maximum throughput.
I just purchased an E-3000 and when I log into the user interface it seems changing pages and saving settings takes forever. I click on a section in the router menu and it takes what seems like 30 seconds for the page to change or accept the new settings. It's not my browser it's definitely a Linksys Router issue. I updated to the latest firmware and latest Cisco Connect software as well. Is this slow user interface a normal thing with these routers?
I'm having very slow file transfer speeds between the 2 computers on my network. One is a gigabit pc wired (cat6) to the e3000. The other is a wireless N laptop. Both computers running Win7. Speeds are like 1.5 - 2 MB/s. when I connect the laptop to the router with a cable (cat6) I get proper high speed. Trying to figure out if it's a problem with the router or windows or what. Speedtest.net says I'm getting 16 MB/s DL wirelessly to my laptop. Shouldn't wireless N be capable of higher speeds than 1.5 MB/s?? Tests are done approx 10 feet from the router.
Will this router ever see a firmware update so that we can have some additional functionality? The version of Twonky Media server that was bundled with this router was old to begin with, and now we are stuck with it? I tried the E4200 but it just kept spinning my drive that's parked in a ThermalTake BlackX, at least the 3000 doesn't do that, but when can we expect some new firmware, it's been 8 months. I used to love Linksys, but with this kind of support I may have to move to a different brand, and I bet I am not alone. it doesn't break the E3000 like you broke the 4200.
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?
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.
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 speedtest.com).I'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) - channels 1,3,6,9, and 11
I bought a EA 3500 router and my speed is going only half the speed it was without the router.I have charter 100 meg internet, and a alienware Pc with a gigabit card.I wa going 100 megs and now I am at 38-50.I have tried hard reset with the bottom button, I have turned off all firewalls, I have changed my MTU to 1400 and 1500, I have went to speedguide.net and ran a optimizer., I have tried just about everything I can think of. firmware is up to date.
Is there anything I am missing, or am I not going to get these speeds with this router, I was told when I bought it, it was what I needed, Was I duped?, or is there just some setting i need to fix i am not aware of?
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 ?

I've bought a TL-WD841ND and was using it normally.
After I arrived from a trip, the internet speed by wireless and by cable is only 0,5~0,7 Mbps...
My internet connection is 10 Mbps, and if I plug direct on the modem, there comes the real speed (9,7 Mbps), but connecting by the router, the speed is 1/20 of what should be. Before my travel i was using it normal, and no one has changed any configuration.
So i've updated to the last firmware avaliable on the website. So i've rebooted it and the "configuration" LED keeps flashing...
I would like to know if this led flashing is normal: (here is a video that i've done: [URL] and what could be happening. ps: connecting by cable, the internet speed is also the same (even after the factory settings reset)...
My transfer speed from HDD which connected to linksys e4200 reach max 2,3MB/s how it is possible to watch fullHD movie if its required minimum 5MB/s? Maybe I should make some adjustments? HDD-WD My Passport 750Gb Also connection speed max reach 144mb/s?? how to make 300mb/s ? wifi adapter is Intel advanced N + WiMax 6250 AGN last driver installed, also E4200 last firmware installed 126.96.36.199 all settings by default Max download speed 75Mb/s by utorrent but provider gives 100Mb/s By cable its ok, max speed 100Mb/s as giving provider
I just setup an EA4500 last night and found the downlaod speed became 1/10 of my previous E3200 before. I tried to use different channels & 20MHz only for wireless connection but no success. The wired connection through Ethernet port was in the same low speed. What else should I try?
I have brand new Cisco E4200 and WD Passport 500Gb.When it connected to router wireless (802.11n 300Mbit/sec) file transfer speed is around terrible 3 MB/sec. Same hard drive directly connected to my Mac Book Pro Unibody produce 30MB/sec. However my internet connection thru the router fairly shows 12MB/sec.It sounds funny, but for me is 4 times faster to download file from the Web rather the from hard dive that I'm holding in my hand.
I have this WRT54G wireless router and I just updated the firmware and everything. But I ran a speed test and the wireless speed is less than half the speed when I connect my pc to the router with a cable. i.e. I have a 32 Mb connection and with cable I get +31 Mb, but with wireless I barely get 13 Mb.
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 (188.8.131.52204) 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?
So I went out and bought a brand new EA4500, because I thought my old router was bad due to horrific wifi Speeds on my Wireless devices like my laptop and Samsung Galaxy S3. Well now I have the same issue with this new router.My speed from comcast straight from the modem is 25mbps down and 5mbps up, on the routers through a wired connection I get the same thing. 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
I usually download and update on my Nas in my house. I conneting my nas to the e4200. My laptop get full wifi from my router, but the speed up and down is very slow. I setup the wireless everything is auto.
