Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160n V3 Has Slow Connection When Multiple Users Are Connected

Oct 9, 2012

As of last night my router has been producing slow connectivity when multiple users are connected to it, but it's perfectly fine when only one user is connected. I am on a laptop myself, but we also have a second laptop and a desktop where the modem and router are set up. I have upgraded the firmware so that is up to date. We have Comcast Fiber Optics so my internet speed is normally quite fast even when all of my computers are connected.
I am using DHCP Configuration. My Channel Width is set to 20 MHz and I am using Channel 11. The Security Mode is set to WPA Personal. I had it on WPA2 Personal but I read that changing to WPA Personal might work and so far it doesn't seem to have done anything. I set the Beacon Interval to 50, Fragmentation Threshold to 2304, and RTS Threshold to 2304. Everything else is set to the default factory configuration.
Just today I received a notice that said "Windows has detected an IP Address Conflict", but ever since I reinstalled the Firmware it hasn't come back. I've rebooted both my laptop and the desktop to confirm it hasn't come back as well. I've tried everything that I could think of including reconfiguring my router and restarting my modem as well.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Wired LAN Connection On E1200

Feb 15, 2013

I have an E1200 acting soley as an AP.  Everything works just fine, but when I try to copy files from one wired computer(both Windows 7) to another one on the same router(the E1200 in this case), the network utilization is only about 4%.  If I take one of the computers off its wired connection and make it wireless, the utilization goes up to about 50%.  Also if I take one of the compuyters off this router, and make a wired connection to my main router(which is connected via a wired connection to the E1200), the network utilization goes up to 50%.

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA4500 IMac Wired Slow Connection

Jul 3, 2012

I have a problem with my new router. I connected't my iMac (27" 2010) and NAS Synology 1511. My problem is the slow connection between mac and router - only 100Mbit (ethernet port on mac is 1Gbit), strange thing... my NAS have 1Gbit with no problem, and the mac is not. I trying manual configure - forcing speed to 1Gbit, but then is no connection at all. I'm also trying changing wires, but no change. Im buying special ethernet cable cat 6 - also no change. Changing ports on router - result the same.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Makes Internet Incredibly Slow With Wired Connection

Apr 21, 2012

I saw one post recommending to changing the MTU from 1500 to 1400.  That did absolutely nothing.  My comcast internet is now slower than 14.4 dial up modem I had 16 years ago.  The strange thing is I can sometimes download at over 2 mbps with torrents.  It's mainly loading websites where the speed is so bad.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Slow Wireless Transfer Speeds / Wrt160n V3

Jul 21, 2011

I have a home network with a media center.  I have the hauppauge 1212 HD pvr so that I can record video in HD to my hard drive.  I want to stream this content to the differnet PCs on my home network.  Every TV in my home I have hooked an HTPC to it.  I use them to play dvd's.  Stream netflixs etc. My problem is that I am getting a terrible transer rate wirelessly.  600 -750 kbps.  (tested by transfering large files from pc to pc)  All computers have 300Mbps wireless n cards.  all are recieving max signals.  There are either 3 or 4 pc's connected at a time depending on whether my laptop is connected or not.  Obviously this is way to slow to stream video. Made sure my network name is unique.  changed to wireless channel 1 I do think I have WEP 64bit encription could this be an issue?

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.

Cisco Wireless :: Slow Download Speeds With Linksys WRT160N V2 Router

Aug 28, 2012

I have a Linksys WRT160N V2 wireless router that I am using with my Comcast Internet service. When I connect to the router via cable, I get download speeds up to 52Mbs (per When I test my wireless connection, I can only get download speeds up to 14.5 Mbs, even though the Windows “Wireless Network Connection” speed shows 54.0 Mbs.

Is there some reason I can’t get faster download speeds with a wireless connection?

Linksys Wired Router :: CISCO RV082 Slow Internet Connection With Firewall?

Nov 14, 2012

I'm owner of Cisco RV082 router and I have a problem with firewall setup.I would like to deny internet access on port 80 (all sites) for group of users, and allow them internet access for one site by HTTPS (443)After applying rules internet connection is really slow.. Users have to wait something like a 30 sec for a website..I descovered that the reason for slow internet connection is DENY rule. After disbling DENY rule everything works fine..Now I have a few rules added to firewall:

Priority:1 Action: Deny Service: HTTP(80) Source interface: LAN Source: Destination: Any

Priority:2 Action: Allow Service: HTTPS(443) Source interface: LAN Source: Destination:
What's wrong with those firewall settings?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3200 Slow Speeds In Both Wired And Wireless Usage

Nov 12, 2012

Why my E3200 is (for lack of a better word) "throttling" my internet speeds.I'm signed up for my ISP's 50Mbps data plan. When I hook up my laptop directly to the cable modem (via LAN cable), I see close to 50Mbps as the internet speed (measure via When I hook up my router to the cable modem, and connect via LAN cable to the router, the internet speed comes down to around a maximum of 26Mbps. NOTE, that I am still talking about a wired connection and not a wireless access. Speed tests with the wireless access do yield the same results as well. To rule out the obvious, I've confirmed that there aren't any other devices on the network and no other bandwidth hogging applications running while I performed these tests.

Linksys WRT160N - Sandbox Wireless Devices From Wired Ones

May 1, 2011

I was wondering if there was any way with a typical home router (for instance I have a Linksys WRT160N) to create a wireless network which is essentially sandboxed from the rest of my network. Basically I want devices on this network to be able to access the Internet only, but not any of the other computers on the network.

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.

No Wireless Internet Connection After Resetting Linksys Wrt160n V3 Router?

Jul 22, 2011

specs: linksys router wrt160n v3, verizon modem gt701c, windows xp service pack 3, verizon DSL, southern california.I have been able to connect to the internet directly through the modem only...but i need my wireless back working. I've reset my router a few times recently trying things i've read on forums from people with similar problems. The most recent thing i did was RESET the router -> connected modem/router/computer properly -> turned them all back on in the proper order -> check to see if websites would open. They didn't so i tried doing this, which was suggested...i plugged the router into the computer and enabled MAC address and then pressed the Clone MAC address button and saved....then I tturned everything off again and rebooted everything again in the proper order and still couldn't load any web pages. Here are my IPCONFIG/ALL read outs for both when i'm hooked up with the router & modem (which isnt working) and directly to the modem (which is working) this is the one with the router & modem:

C:Documents and SettingsOwner>ipconfig/all
Windows IP Configuration
Host Name . . . . . . . . . . . . : shakas
Primary Dns Suffix . . . . . . . :
Node Type . . . . . . . . . . . . : Unknown


My modem and wireless were working fine for years...and then recently without me doing anything my modem kept dropping connection and the internet and dsl lights kept flashing and then going back i'd be connected for a few minutes and then they'd start flashing again over and over all the time. I finally called verizon and then had me fiddle around with stuff...followed all their directions...but ended up only being able to connect while directly connected to the modem. Even then, the modem was still losing connection and getting it back. (i was supposed to schedule a house call for a tech to check it out, never did) Over a couple weeks the connection ended up getting better on its own, so now it pretty much never drops out anymore. (almost) i've reset my modem, i've reset my router....i just still cant seem to get websites working with my modem and wireless router connected.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N V2 Dropping Internet Connection?

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT160N Dropping And Keeping Connection Active

Jun 3, 2009

Having problems with my wireless router, dropping and keeping connection active. For some odd reason I keep dropping connection either wireless or wired. I have a total of 5 items going through this router. 2 of them are wireless and the other 3 are wired. The wireless items are a desktop computer that is using the Wireless USB adapter to get online. Sometimes it drops and most of the time it doesn’t have any problems. I have a laptop that sometimes the connection goes from strong all the way down to no connection at ALL. It starts at 54MBPS to down to the RED X over the wireless manager. Forgot to mention both of these machines are Windows XP. If I reboot the laptop, it comes up without any problems.

Sometimes I tell Windows XP to manage the Wireless connection and tell it to disconnect and re-connect again, it goes. Now for the wired items, I have 2 gaming systems and another computer plugged directly up to the router. For some odd reason when I double click on the internet, on the computer that is hooked directly to the router, it says page couldn’t be found. I know that there is connection and there is nothing running in the task tray except for the Anti-Virus and Firewall. The browsers that I am using are Internet Explorer 8 and Mozilla Firefox 3.0.10.  Also checked on the back of the machine to see if I have link lights and everything is flashing. Finally, when I click the homepage or refresh button about 2 or 3 times, it goes through.

think that I am overloading this Router and it can’t handle it. I might have to look into sending "Keep Alive" packet setting on the router.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt160n - Dropping Wifi Connection Since New Phone

Dec 19, 2012

I've got a router in room where my cable modem comes in. In center of house, I have another router, N Ultra Range PLUS, WRT160N.
My laptop, which I use in front room near that middle room router and my husband's desktop, also near that middle room have no problems. My desktop which is right next to the main router in back of house (where the cable modem is), has the weakest signal. I guess that's because the WRT160N is further away from it and has two walls to go through. But most of time signal was good - just not as good as the other two computers. And even when signal was Low, it never dropped connection.
Recently I got a new smart phone with WIFI. Anytime I have turned on the phone and used it, I often then have to refresh my wireless signal or reboot computer because it loses the connection. I read somewhere on internet that this may be because of the additional device but again, it doesn't effect the other two closer computers.
