Linksys Wireless Router :: EA2700 - Getting Poor Download Speed?

Sep 20, 2012

I have tried all the speed test sites and tried downloads with and without my EA2700. Every test shows about half the perfomance when connected through the router. My speed tests at with a direct connection are in the 21-26Mbps range, the same tests run about a minute later through the EA2700 fall in the 10-12Mbps range with spikes up to 17Mbps.I've reset the router and modem.I've gone back to the Firmware (which it's currently on)I've set the MTU everywhere from 1400 to 1500 (literally EVERY setting for at least a couple of hours) it is 1492 currently. None of these have worked. In addition, when a large stream starts, such as a Steam download, I will lose ALL connectivity. Going in to Network and Sharing and clicking to connect to the internet restores the connection, no need to reset any hardware (which is odd in itself). I have had MANY routers over the years and I've all but exhausted support with service provider as the connection is solid if I eliminate the router.Main machine is a Windows 7 Home edition Total of 5 machines, 3 of which see regular use All machines go through a Trendnet 16 port switch and performance is the same direct or through the switch I m on Brighthouse in Central Florida and have all but exhausted their support.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Ea6500 / Log In Error And Poor Wifi Speed?

Jan 19, 2013

I just picked up a EA6500 wireless router today and I am a bit disappointed. I paid $199 for this router because I was hoping to take advantage of of fast N speeds and the advanced features it offers.When I first logged in to set up the router, I saw an amber exclamation point with a note that read "Updating Linksys Smart Wi-Fi Service". When I put my password in I was met with a "Unexpected Error" message.Also, the firmware updater doesn't work. Now on to the more bothersome issue. Wireless speed is poor. I replaced a WRT160NL router with this one. On my old router using WPA2-Personal (AES) I would see speeds of ~300 Mbps. On my EA6500, I see 120 Mbps. I have checked and double checked all wireless and security settings and don't see anything that looks wrong.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54gs Wifi Download Speed 1/3 Of Wired Speed

Dec 28, 2010

I just discovered that my wireless download speeds are 5Mbps, compared to 16Mbps if my laptop is connected directly to the modem or wired through the router.  Uploads are 2Mbps either way.  I have a WRT54GS v.6 with firmware version v1.52.8 which I updated today, completed by setting factory default through the router webpage after I discovered this discrepancy.  The firmware update did not improve the download speed appreciably, if at all.Should the wireless connection be that much slower than the wired connection through the router?  If not, what sort of issues could I be having to account for this?
I did just replace my modem when I discovered I was having erratic speedtests and that corrected that problem.  That is when I became aware of the wireless issue, so not sure how long that has been the case.  I have Charter's 16/2 HSI, living in a sparsely populated area with solid internet service.  There is no external nor internal interference on this 2.4Ghz band.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Getting Download Speed On WRT600N?

Jul 14, 2011

I have been using a Lenovo W510 laptop with an Intel wireless adapter (Intel(R) Centrino(R) Ultimate-N 6300 AGN).  The download speed has been 15-18 mbps on my home network.  I just bought a new Lenovo W520 with a Lenovo wireless adapter.  The download speed is about 1 to 1.5 mbps.  What changes should I make to the router settings so that it communicates properly with the Lenovo wireless adapter?

Linksys Wireless Router :: DIR-615 Strange Download Speed

Nov 13, 2011

I have searched the forums, and can see that I am not the only one with speed problems on this router. When I changed from a D-link dir-615 (yeah, no wonder I changed it )  my download speed dropped from 4-5 MB/s to 1,3 MB/s. I'm using a wired connection. Have tried disabling QoS in router settings, did a firmware upgrade, reset the router. You see, when I do speed tests on the internet I get 40-50 mbits download, 25-30 mbits upload. I have tried many different files to download, both torrents and through my browser.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 Losing 2/3 Of Download Speed

Jun 10, 2012

my Linksys E3200 router is somehow slowing my internet download speed by a lot.  Direct wired connection from computer to modem gets me around 200Mbps download speed, but if I connect thru my Linksys E3200 router (wired connection, not wifi), the download speed goes down significantly to ~70Mbps.  The E3200 is only connected to the modem and my computer (i.e. I have unplugged all other devices from the E3200 router). Are there setttings in the E3200 that can potentially cause it to limit the speed or could this be caused by something else?

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?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Range / Download Speed

Mar 2, 2012

I have  WRT160N router and am not sure if I have a connectivity problem or a setting issue. I've done a speed test with and get fine through the hard wire desktop (25.16/3.77) but when I do it on my wireless laptop I get 2.03down / 3.66up.  The speeds were basically the same right next to router as it was 40' away.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Very Slow Download Speed

Feb 17, 2012

I just bought this router and set it up using its CD. It looked like everything was fine until I connected my laptop using wireless. The wireless download speed is absolutely ridiculous. My wired desktop shows 35mbps while my laptop is 0.5mbps. Upload is same for both. Clearly something is limiting my download wireless.
Contacted Cisco support and they told me to change the mtu to 1400, change channel to 11 and reboot. Nothing worked. I have the latest software.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Download Speed Degrading Drastically

Feb 3, 2012

I have a 30Mbps download speed when plugged directly into my modem.
When I go from modem to router and then directly plugged into computer (using ethernet) it degrades to 15 Mbps.
When I swith to wireless and I step about 20 feet from router my speed degrades down to 0.57 Mbps with full signal strength.
My version of firmware is 1.2.11. Here are my settings:MTU = 50Beacon = 50

Fragment Threshold = 2304

RTS = 2304

Radio Band = 20 GHZ channel

Standard Channel = set to 11

Network mode is mixed.
Security is a WPA2 / AES
What's wrong with this router that my download speed is degrading so much?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Download Speed When Hardwired To E4200?

Apr 14, 2012

Im trying to optimize my E4200 settings and Ive noted that ping and download speeds are extremely slow for the internet service I signed up for. Ping speeds are consistently more than 1000ms and dowload speeds typically are less than 3Mbps. These are for both wireless and wired connections to the E4200 router.
When I disconnect the router and hardwire my laptop directly to the the modem, ping speeds are less than 100ms and download speeds are 20Mbps.
Simply put, webpage loading is at a snails pace with wireless and wired connection the router, but blazing fast when hardwired directly to the modem.
On a seperate issue, the iMac I have is also **bleep** slow even when hardwired directly to the modem. Is there an obvious router setting Im screwing up?  Router is updated with the latest software.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Get Download Speed Up To 25 Mbps Before Switch Back To E1000

Oct 9, 2012

I just "upgraded" from an E1000 to an E1200 wireless router.  I had good performance with the E1000, and I only upgraded to the E1200 because it was on sale.My only complaint with the E1200 is the slower download speed on my desktop PC that is connected directly to the router.  My normal download speed on the desktop PC was 25 Mbps with the E1000 model.  After I disabled the WMM on the E1200 as others suggested, the download speed on the desktop machine immediately increased from 5 Mbps up to 15 Mbps.   Any other suggestions to get the download speed up to 25 Mbps before I switch back to my E1000? The E1200 router is connected to my Arris TM602G modem.  Both modem and router were reset during the installation process. I setup parental controls for a couple of iPods and configured Open DNS, but other than that, the router is using default settings.  All wireless devices in the house seem to be performing fine with the E1200.

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 :: WRT54G - .77 Mbps Download And .17 Mbps Upload Speed

Mar 11, 2013

I just ran some speedtests om my PC on the advice of my isp to see if my Linksys WRT54G router might be bad.  As a result, I found that the router might not be entirely bad, but it might not be entirely good, either.  I got .77 Mbps dowload and .17 Mbps upload on the first speedtest.  I got .43 Mbps download on the second speedtest and the speed test hung hear the end. When I connected an IMac to the cable modem with an ethernet cable, the IMac ran strong.  So the tech thought I should get a new router.
But wait a minute, isn't there a network adapter in the PC that the router talks to?  Might the adapter be the problem, not the router?  So I speedtested the wireless network to the IMac.  That speedtest was fine, tiptop, like the ethernet direct connection test noted above.  Did that tell me that the problem is in my PC network adapter, not the router? Then, I retested (speedtested) the connection on the PC and it was fine...excellent.  Good up and down speeds, no hangs.Then, I checked the PC adapter (a Belkin).  I saw three adapters on Device Manager, including the Belkin.  I downloaded new drivers for the adapters (except for the Microsoft Virtual WiFi Minipoty Adapter - because it got a warning that the download software wasn't signed and might harm my computer).

Linksys E1200 Wireless Download Versus Upload Speed

May 28, 2012

I have a Linksys E1200 router, which replaced a Linksys WRT54G wireless router. The WRT54G ran perfectly, but did not support wireless N, so I replaced it with the Linksys E1200. The router is physically located in a good spot, up high and centrally located in my house.Problem is, my download speed on my android tablet, xBox, iPhone is very slow, yet my upload speed is screaming fast.

Wireless: Ping: 30ms, Download 1.93Mbps, Upload 6.27Mbps.

Wired: Ping: 14, Download 17.88 Mbps, Upload 6.7Mbps.

I've changed channels on my router, changed channel width. Connection type is DHCP. My security is WPA2. I use the wireless MAC filter (allow only these MAC addresses access). No parental controls, I don't use port forwarding or triggering, and my firmware is up-to-date. why my speed changed from the older router to the newer router?

Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter / Very Slow Download Speed - Upload Speed Is Fine

Jan 11, 2011

Recently my desktop has experienced very slow download speeds (~0.11 Mbps), however the upload speed appears to be in line (~2.0Mbps). These numbers are taken from Comcast's speed test (my ISP). It is obviously a problem with my PC because everything else on the network (PS3, Laptop) have great signals with no problems. I just recently reverted the Desktop back to its factory state, and everything was working fine for a couple of months. The desktop in question uses Vista 32-bit and the Belkin Basic USB Wireless Adapter.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Poor Download Speeds While Uploading?

Apr 13, 2011

I have a DSL connection with AT&T.  It is rated at 6Mbps / 768Kbps, but it closer to 4Mbps / 600Kbps.  I have a speed stream 5360 connected to the DIR655.  Devices on my network are primarily wireless and include; several laptops, a desktop (which is wireless n), a couple phones / Ipods and a Wii that I watch Netflix on.

I do a lot of Photography and a handful of video work, and backup / share everything online.  When I am uploading photos, even with "conserve bandwidth" turned on in the uploading application, browsing sites is very slow, but reasonably functional.  If I try to upload a video to YouTube, I can barely manage to do anything else the entire time it is uploading.  I've tried to plan and run all my uploads overnight, but then Netflix is unusable when I want to watch it at night.

I've tried several different things, first off, with getting the Wii to function for Netflix, I turned on the QOS engine, for the IP that is assigned to it, and set it to priority 1 for all ports.  I also have a entry in the QOS engine for SSH on port 23 with a priority of 10 because of how laggy my SSH sessions are.  I do not have any other entries in the QOS engine, is that a problem?  Should there be entries that cover other services and assign them a lower priority? 

I have enable traffic shaping and Automatic uplink speed turned on.  It measured the uplink speed at 695kbps, which is pretty accurate.  I have Automatic Classification off, and Dynamic Fragmentation on.  WISH is enabled also. I'm set to mixed n, g, and b, I'm not positive, but I do think my older laptops only use wireless b.

Even more importantly than the Netflix would be to allow me to use the Internet in a functional manner while I am uploading, that would solve a lot of problems.  It seems that the uploads just hog every last bit of upload bandwidth and don't want to make room for even the small requests that one needs to send to view a web page.

Cisco WAN :: C1861 And ZBF Performance With Download Is Poor

May 1, 2011

having a very strange problem with a Cisco 1861 running - Cisco IOS Software, C1861 Software (C1861-ADVENTERPRISEK9-M), Version 12.4(24)T5
The issue  -I  have suddenly started to get performance issues with downloads and  access through the ZBF. Without the firewall enabled and just having NAT  enabled and routing  , downloads perform as expected - ( have been  using Itunes download as test file ) - with the ZBF enabled , and the  necessary rules installed to inspect & allow traffic - downloads  stall - and the only way to get the downlaod to start again is to pause ,  then resume. The stalls are anything between the first 25 - 120 secs.
I  have debugged and performed packet traces - but cant see anything  untoward. I have also placed another router ( just a cheap Belkin )  on  the ADSL service and again , the downloads work as expected.
one  further thing to add is that when im tunneling through the firewall (  VPN ) , then downloads do work as expected - suggesting that the issue  is with native HTTP(s) traffic.

I  have upgraded from T4 to T5 - and the symptons still remain - I am  thinking that these may have been introduced when i upgraded to T4 a few  monthes ago.

Belkin N300 Router - Wireless Download Speed Limited?

Dec 4, 2012

I have a Belkin N300 router. When a computer is hard-wired to the router, I get about 26Mbps, but all of the wireless devices in my house are limited to about 56kbps. I tried logging into the router to see if there was something "choking" the connection speed, but nothing really jumped out at me. Is there a setting of some kind that could be causing this?

I do have a signal repeater since my house is so big, but there is nothing within those controls that would seem to have that kind of effect either.
