Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Keeps Slowing Down To Snail Speeds?

Jun 20, 2012

I'm tired of resetting my router. Every so often my e3000 will like forget its supposed to supply bandwidth. What I mean is that I pay for 7mbps down .5mbps up cable broadband and when the router is working fine I always get really close or over that. When it forgets what its supposed to be doing I get a painful .15mbps~1mbps down/up (usually under dial up tho) I check the modem and all values are running a full speed with good voltages, SNR's, and frequencies. It doesn't seem to matter if I change any values in the router after the issue starts. I need to do a reset either through the firmware "factory defaults" or the red reset button. Then everything goes back to working but I'm seriously getting tired of resetting my router every week or more. Restoring settings also causes it to go into crawl mode. This effects wifi and wired connections. Its also been upgraded to the latest firmware version from linksys.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g - Internet Speeds Slowing Down When Wifi Enabled

Jun 27, 2011

I have both the WRT54G and a E1000 wireless routers and this problem is occurring for both of them.I use AT&T DSL and the speeds are fine when it is :

1. Not plugged into router

2. Wireless Network Mode is disabled through the router configuration page, having all devices wired.
However when wireless network mode is enabled, speeds drop significantly, 15~17 ms ping goes to 250~800 ping, and download speeds are way lower also. When the router is reset, the regular speeds will return for maybe 30 seconds to 1 minute, then it'll drop back down. I'm positive there's no outsiders connected to my network and this problem still occurs, only when the router is giving out wireless signals. Sometimes the problem randomly goes away for a while but it will always come back. I've tried many things, firmware upgrades, factory restore, none of them seem to work, the only solution so far has been to disabling it, but I need it to be on as there are other devices in other rooms of the house that need WiFi to connect to the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 And 2 Xboxes Very Low Bandwidth Speeds

Jul 9, 2011

I have 2 xbox 360's I'm trying to connect to my E3000 wirelessly. I've tried several different things, but I always end up with moderate/strict NAT on one or both xboxes. I tried going back to default settings, and got open NAT for both xboxes and very low bandwidth speeds for both, which caused a lot of online playing issues.I never had an issue with the bandwidth speed before until I reset to factory defaults.What is the best way to connect 2 xboxes at the same time without NAT and bandwidth issues?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Slow Network Transfer Speeds Over N

Jul 11, 2011

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. 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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1500 - Multiple Computer Slowing My Connection Down?

Feb 10, 2013

I'm using a Linksys E1500 on my Timewarner 20Mbs connection and I've noticed that anytime another computer on my network connects my connection speed take a significant drop.  This happens when Macs or PCs connect and there doesn't seem to be any common ground between any of them.  In addition the connection is slow wether the other PCs are idle or downloading anything, it seems to make no difference.  my ping in any game drops from 70 to 500 just for 2 other PC being on at the saem time on the network.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Wifi Connection Slowing Down When Downloading

Aug 2, 2011

I have the following setup at home:

-E4200 connected via Ethernet cable (100Mbs) to local ISP for internet access
-E4200 connected via Ethernet cable (1Gps) to my desktop PC
-E4200 connected via wireless (5Ghz with WPA2 personal) to my laptop
In general, everything works fine, I can download files from internet to my PC close to the maximum speed limit (80-90Mbs), the wireless connection goes up to 300Mbs and it can achieve around 10-14MB/s file transfer between PC and laptop.A lot of the time the wireless connection to my laptop is used for HD content streaming from the desktop PC. It works very well until I start downloading files to my PC with speed greater than 50Mbs, when the wireless connection speed drops very fast to about 500KB/s which results in interruptions on the video streaming. At the same time the router’s web interface reacts much slower than usual, as if the router’s CPU is overloaded.
I’ve read this follow up review on Small net builder url...and it’s clear that there are some issues when taking E4200 to the limit, but in my case it’s nowhere near that.

Belkin F7D4301 - Router Has Slow Wireless Speeds But Fast Ethernet Speeds

May 19, 2013

My Belkin F7D4301 Router has the fastest wireless speed of maybe 2MBps but wired with a cat5e cable to my asus laptop of almost 7MBps. I have a one smart TV, one blue ray, one roku, and a nexus 7 using the 2.4 channel.

My Wireless 2.4 settings are channel 11, Extension channel 7, Wireless mode N (have tried with just g and b, g, and n modes), Bandwidth 20/40, Protected mode on, QOS off.

I've talked to Belkin tech support, they are the ones who had me set up my 2.4 channel this way but my wireless speeds stay just under 2MBps, they just want to keep sending me the same model Router because they think each of the new ones they send me is defective.

Am I doing something wrong or is 2MBps the best wireless speed I'm going to get?

Linksys Wired Router :: RV082 Slowing Down Internet Connection

Jul 14, 2011

I have a RV082 Linksys router and at the moment it is slowing down my internet connection by a significant amount. With the router, I get about 3 Mbps and with a modem directly connected to my computer I get about 24 Mbps. Before with the router I used to get 15 Mbps, which is understandable because it is connected to 4 computers total. Maybe my setup has something to do with it. I got a cable that is connected to a modem, the modem is connected to the router, from which one port is connected to a computer, and another is used to connect to a Netgear switch, which in turn is connected to 3 more computers.
Everything was fine until I went on a trip and wasn't home for about 2 weeks, and when I came back, this happened. I tried restarting the modem, the router and all to no avail. I also tried to do a factory reset on the router and again got slow speeds.

Wireless Speeds With Linksys Router

Nov 21, 2012

Recently the Comcast internet service in my area was upgraded to 50+ Mbps/10+ Mbps download/upload respectively. If I have my computer wired to the router, I see the advertised speeds of 50/10. If I go wireless, the speeds drop to around 30 Mbps download, but stay at around 10 Mbps upload. The router I have is a Linksys WRT160Nv1.I believe the issue has to do with "WMM Support" in my router's settings. From what I've heard, the router has to have WMM enabled for true wireless N speeds, but when I have WMM enabled, my wireless download speeds drop to around .5 Mbps. However, this is the odd part. My upload speeds stay at 10+ Mbps. This happens for all devices in my house.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2500 Connecting At Low Speeds

Dec 22, 2011

I recently installed a refurbished E2500 router. The reported speeds I got when hovering over the icon in the system tray ranged from 54 Mbps down to 1.0 Mbps. Also, it would drop, then reestablish, the connection several times per day.I contacted Tech Support via Live Chat, and got a woman who told me it was due to the fact that I'm using the router with an older system that has a wireless-G card (I'll be getting a new system soon).Of course, I thought that was ridiculous, so I called Linksys Tech Support and got a young man who had me reinstall the firmware upgrade (which I had already done when I installed the router). After that, it was good for about 24 hours, then the problems manifested again.I returned the router and ordered a replacement, also refrubished. Again, I upgraded the firmware upon installation. .

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT600N Slow Wi-Fi Speeds

Jun 1, 2012

I have a WRT600N router.  I have one PC that is connected to the router via a wired connection.  I also have an iPad (3rd generation) that is connected to the router via a wireless connection. On my PC, I went to and determined that I am receiving like 20MB downloads via the wired connection.  However, my iPad only gets approximately less than 2 MB download speeds.  I have tried reseting the router and I do have what I believe to be the latest firmware update (Firmware Version: 1.01.36 build 4).  I also receive the slow download speeds when I try connecting the other wireless devices.  I assume my problem has to do with some sort of configuration setting found in the router configuration page ( The router is only a few feet away from my iPad so the signal strength is strong.  I just don't understand why I'm receiving such slow wireless download speeds.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 Speeds Extremely Slow

Jan 24, 2013

i just replaced my malfunctioning E4200 with the new EA6500 and the speeds are almost like dail-up. I haven't changed ANYTHING in regards to the setup, so I don't see what I could possibly be doing wrong. I even went as far as hooking up the old E4200 to my laptop while having the EA6500 hooked up to my desktop so that I could cross-reference the router settings. They were exactly the same.

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Monitor Connection Speeds On E4200

Dec 28, 2011

All my previous routers have allowed me to monitor my connection speeds however I can't find this in this router.  I found the client table under "status" but I have not been able to find the connection speeds anywhere.  I like to make sure that my devices are running at close to 300Mbps and not 54Mbps in case I have a connection setup wrong.  I have searched in the forums without much luck.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WUMC710 Slow Speeds With EA6500?

Jan 21, 2013

Unlike other people, I haven't (yet) experienced any flapping of the wireless connection: it's stable but slow.
My problem is that Samba share speed are 50MB/s without using the WUMC710 (connected directly to the router) and about 10 MB/s with connection to the WUMC710. Computers have gigabit NICs and proper cables.
The WUMC710 is about 5 metres from EA6500 and there are no obstacles. The WUMC710 says that signal is 100%.
On the EA6500 the 5GHz band is on and I have tried almost every possible compination with the settings: all the way from Mixed and full automated to Only AC and 80MHz. I also tried resetting both devices.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Fluctuating Internet Speeds With E3200?

Feb 26, 2012

My new e3200 setup just fine with Cisco Connect.  I have consistently good speeds with a direct ethernet connection, but the wireless speeds fluctuate widely.  When I power cycle the router, I'll have perfect speeds for a few minutes and then it'll slow to a crawl (approx 0.5Mbps).  Then for no apparent reason, it will speed back up to normal, and then back down to a crawl.  I'm using the latest firmware and have allowed Cisco Connect to manage the router so far.This is actually my 2nd router, as Tech Support told me when I experienced this with the first router that it was defective, but I'm seeing the same problem with the 2nd router, so I know something isn't quite right.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Download Speeds With E1200

Apr 29, 2012

I have an E1200 that will work fine for a while, then suddenly the download speed for all wireless devices will drop to between 20-30 KB/sec.  It happened last night when we were watching videos on Hulu.  We were blazing along fine, when all of a sudden the connection was horrible enough that we had to stop watching.  We have no idea what changed - there are only two of us in the house and we were both passively watching Hulu.
This has happened before, and usually changing something like the wireless channel has fixed it, but not this time. The PCs we have that are connected to the router via Ethernet get between 1-3 MB/sec, so I know it's not the modem or the ISP.The signal strength is good (4-5 bars).  I have tried repositioning the router and the wireless reciever but that hasn't worked.I have the latest firmware for the router as far as I know (v2.0.02).
I have tried every channel available (including "Auto").  I have tried switching the Channel Width between Auto and 40 MHz.  I have tried resetting the router to factory settings and re-uploading my configuraiton.  I have tried setting QoS.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT120N - Low Speeds And Intermittent Crashing

Mar 30, 2011

I have a WRT120N router set up with WPA2 security and set to channel 11. Everything is connected via the router (one wired computer, up to a max of 5 laptops but just 2-3 on a regular basis, a wired xbox360, wireless wii and a few cell phones occasionally connect wirelessly). Everything has been working great, been getting at or very close to the 6mbps we are supposed to be getting...until the past 2 weeks. Suddenly the connection drops repeatedly throughout the night. It either shows local only or just "limited connectivity". Normally when this happens my laptop will pick the signal back up when things are normal but I am actually having to disconnect and reconnect for it to work again. It happens again in about 30 min to an hour after that. Also, our connection speeds are showing at .5 - 1.5 instead of 6. I plugged the cable modem (the 660 series sent out by sprint/embarq/century link (or whatever name they are going by today lol) into the computer directly and got 5.7mbps. I have tried power cycles of both pieces of equipment but that doesnt work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200V2 Slow Wired LAN Speeds

Feb 15, 2012

Set up my new E4200V2 last night, everything appeared to be working but while streaming videos over wired LAN I get short hiccups over wired. While streaming videos, a few second long pause is really, distracting, this is a deal breaker and my previous router (DIR-655) had no issue streaming any videos. The wiring has not changed, only the router.I set up a ping between two wired linux boxes, and get: [code]

Whoa, 10 ms over gigabit LAN. This is crazy, but doesn't tell us much. The 10 ms was one out of hundreds of pings, so its only intermittent. This might explain the hiccups, but this router doesn't appear to log anything, so its hard to say.Next was scp transfers, which never exceed 15MB/s, in either direction. For gigabit, wired LAN this is awful, with my previous DIR-655 I would get at the very least 40 MB/s, in all situations.Next up, iperf. I set up iperf on the two hosts, and iperf reports reasonable gigabit speeds. [code] Tonight I am thinking of reverting to an old firmware, doing a hard reset and seeing if it persists, and if no ideas come up in this forum, it is getting returned, 15MB/s over gigabit lan is terribly broken.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Disappointing Wifi Speeds With E4200?

May 6, 2011

I just got an e4200 and I'm haviong very disappointing wireless speeds. My network is setup as follows
powerline-----------wireless router ----------- laptop (using USB adapter Linksys AES1000, Intel bng internal, Belkin adapter)
If I plug into the back of the e4200 I can download at roughly the raw speed of the powerline 7 MBps. So I know the powerline connection is just fine and the routing function of the e4200 is just fine. When I use my laptop my speeds are wildly variable on both 2.4 and 5 ghz. With a clear line of sight to the router (maybe 7 feet away) they seem to hover around 1.5 MBps but have reached as high as 5.5 MBps twice. Using my much cheap older Buffalo router I routinely get speeds in the 4.5 MBps range which I would consider acceptable (although it has other, separate issues). I have followed all of the advice I can find on the forums. The range is also pretty terrible. If I'm 20 feet away and no longer have a clear line of site to the router I will frequenly have almost no signal and miserably slow download speeds in the kbps.I have made sure that I am using wpa2 with AES, I have changed my MTU to 1365, I have updated the firmware to the one released in March, and I have explored setting different channels on the router to no avail. I also contacted tech support which I'm only marginally sure understood that I was talking about the LAN connection and not the internet.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT400N Slow Download Speeds?

Aug 28, 2012

I have been experiencing intermittent issues with download speeds of 1-3 MB and ironically upload speeds of almost 10MB. When everything is working fine I get download speeds of about 35MB and upload speeds of 5MB which is normal. This issue comes and goes. I had Comcast come out several times and we finally pinpointed it back to the WRT400N router. The Comcast modem is a Cisco DPC3008 model. I know there are known issues with the Cisco WRT400N but have had a hard time finding the information. Any known issues for this model and if so what are the fixes. BTW, the firmware is up to date.

I have been having a problem with my router for the past two weeks and my ISP (RCN) has done nothing to fix it so maybe with our nerd power combined we can find a solution!My router runs fine about 60% of the time, I get 20-24Mbps down and 2Mbps up connect wirelessly. the other 40% of the time the download speed suddenly drops to 1.5-2Mbps down and 1Mbps up. There is nothing in particular that I will be doing at the moment it just suddenly dies.Things I have done that have not worked.I have changed my channel to 1,6,and 11.Updated firmware.Factory Reset (New broadcast name/password).Set up static IPs.I have tried disabling WMM Support and this just kills any connection wirelessly to the router.Is there anything else you can think of to fix the issue, or should I just be demanding a new router the next time they come

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Incredibly Slow Transfer Speeds?

Oct 18, 2011

Using 1.0.03.
I am seeing something pretty bizarre: when trying to copy files between two computers (both Windows 7 SP1 64bit), both physically plugged into the back of the E4200, I see extremely slow transfer speeds: 1.0-1.1 MB/sec.  Both computers are fast (i7-2600K, both using SSDs) and both have gigabit ports (and the 4200's web UI shows both ports in question as operating in gigabit mode).
This is so slow as to be sort of funny.  Each of these computers see speeds well in excess of that when transferring between the computer and outside internet it's kind of funny that two computers plugged into the same switch in the back of the 4200 see 1 MB/second.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Extremely Slow Download Speeds

Jun 5, 2011

All I want is functional Wi-Fi in my house like the rest of the world. Unfortunately, I cannot have that for whatever reason.

Now that I said that, Let's me get down to explaining my issue. I orginally owned a Linksys WRT350n. This router worked fine for years, untill one day I decided to do a speed test on my new Motrola Atrix. My Wired computer gets ~22000kbps down and 4000kbps up... My wireless speedtest on my Atrix yielded 2000kbps down and 4000kbps up. I assumed it was the phone, so i went and tried every other wireless device in my house. Everyone of them got the same result.. 2000kbps down.. 4000kbps up.

At this point I went into my router settings and tried every available channel, all of them yielded the same result of 2000kbps down and 4000kbps up.. At this point, I assumed it was the router. Ive had it for a few years and figured it was just reaching EOL. I rushed to my nearest bestbuy to pick up a brand new Linksys E4200. I brought it home, hooked it up and was eager to test my new wireless speeds. Unfortunately the same results of 2000kbps down and 4000kbps up was the yield. Once again, I've tried every possible channel with no change to my speeds. At this point I called up Linksys/Cisco support.. They were POSITIVE it was a hardware issue and had me exchange the router, even though I informed them i had the same issue with my older router of a different model. I went along with it anyway, and exchanged my router. Same issue. I called Cisco/Linksys back up and informed them, and basically they told me "they'd make a note of the issue and call me back at a later date."

I downloaded a WiFi Analyzer on my cell phone. Theres only two other dectable networks in my area, and they are low low low signal. So, I don't believe it's heavy saturation. The router is in the same room as 3 of the wireless devices that get 2000kbps down/4000kbps up. So it's not range either.
