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.

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 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: 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 :: E1200 Slow Upload Speeds?

Nov 13, 2012

I upgraded my old router to a Linksys E1200 about 2 months ago. Like others with Comcast, I now have a lot slower internet speeds. I've updated everything, disabled WMM. I'm still getting slow speeds. My download speed is 3.12, which is not that bad for me. However, my upload is just below 1.

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.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Intermittent Slow Download Speeds On E1200?

Aug 22, 2012

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.

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 :: E1200 Showing Very Slow Download Speeds?

May 9, 2013

I recently set up a new E1200 router to replace my old one. We are having problems with very slow download speeds (often <0.10 Mbps) even while the upload speeds are OK (8-10 Mbps). Our previous download speed over wifi was 10-15 Mbps.When I first set it up, the download speed was very poor on the initial computer. After fooling around, it was fine. I don't know what I did that made it speed up. However, my wife's computer has had very poor download speeds. After rebooting my computer, the download speed has also dropped bak to <0.10. I was able to stream Hulu on my Wii just fine an hour ago.

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

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 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.

Cisco Wireless :: Slow LAN Speeds On Linksys E1200

Jan 9, 2013

Router -> Linksys E1200 v2
I have a question about slow speeds over wireless on my home network. For some reason my read and write speeds are incredible slow (approx 1 MB/S) and sometimes lower when copying files from one PC on my network to another. When I do this wired into the router, file transfers are 10x to 15x faster. This is odd since internet speeds (both up and download) far exceed the wireless read/write speeds on my own network. When I say slow network speeds I mean transferring files from my laptop (wirelss) to another computer (wired) or my Network Attached Storaged (wired).
I have tried the following

- Upgraded to latest firmware

- Disabled WMM

- Literally put my wireless laptop 1 foot away from the router to make sure there wasn't interference slowing things down.
I use my NAS for the storage of all my music and video. Moving of hundreds of pictures or songs at slow data transfer rates can be really painful.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT600N Connecting To N-Only

Aug 30, 2012

I have a WRT600N dual band router and have only been able to connect to the 5Ghz when it's network mode was set to mixed. I also have a Dell Wireless 1505 Draft 802.11n WLAN Mini-Card. When setting the Network mode on my router to Wireless N-Only I am unable to connect to the network. I have been searching all over the internet for how to fix this, but none of the answers suit me. I have my network security set to WPA2 with an AES encryption, like people keep saying so I know that is not the problem. Others say that I need to set my wireless adapter to N-Only as well, but I have not been able to find anything in Google that shows me how this is done. The driver version for my adapter is and is up to date according to Windows.

I'm having problems with the access restrictions feature on the WRT600N.  I do have the latest firmware upgrade, which was released in 2008 I believe.  Anyways whenever I totally block a PC from the internet either by MAC or by IP, it affects the internet on the rest of the house.  Logins to sites do not work right.  Logouts from do not work right.  Different features of different sites will not work properly.  There also will be a lag sometimes when entering the url for a new site.  But as soon as I turn the access restriction off, everything goes immediately back to how it should be working.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Setting WRT600N As A Second (downstream Non-DHCP)?

Sep 16, 2011

I fought my ISP (frontier) for weeks trying to get their 7500 DSL/modem/router configured in bridge and working into the WRT600N.  Finally gave up and put a new Engenius EVR100 behind the 7500 bridge and it came up fine in 10 mins.  Now I would like to use my old WRT600N downstairs as a second router and run it in the range of the Engenius DHCP, with DHCP turned off in the WRT600N.
My question is this ... Do I set the WRT600N as a static IP address and use an address in the range issued by the EVR100?And, if so, what would the sub-net mask, default gateway and DNS numbers be?  Also would the router address itself (lets say I use from the EVR100 range) be different then the static IP address?
