About 2 months or so ago, my upload speed just pretty much stopped working. Nothing changed with my PC/modem/router, so I don't know what happened. My download speed is FINE, fast like it's always been(over 20 Mbps). I can upload a file maybe 500KB or lower, but it takes several minutes. If I try to upload anything bigger, it doesn't work(errors/gets stuck).
It's not my PC because I have the same problem on my tablet and ipod. It's not the router because I tested it by just hooking up the modem directly to my PC.
At speedtest.net, it just gets stuck on the upload test and never gives me results.
I rent my modem from Comcast. Should I just bring this modem in and get a new one?
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.
I live in the tampa bay area, I have bright house (BHN) as my service provider, which provides a Road Runner Lightning (40/5) package. I previously used BHN's top tier (20/2) back in July (and prior) with no problems.
After converting to Lightning in August of this year (2010). Of course, BHN (and every other provider) wants to force a modem/router down your throat, so I had them bridge it (in short, turn it into a dummy modem with no routing). I had an SMC branded modem gateway at the time. I work from home 2 days a week (so I can spend more time with my kids during morning, lunch, right after work) and this requires me to use QoS to ensure my VOIP work calls don't get dropped, if the family is watching youtube videos or watching netflex.
My network was as follows SMC Modem >WAN IP>>WAN Port>>D-link DIR-655>>Switch Ports>PC1, PC2, PC3
Everything seemed fine (from a usability stand point) till about 2 weeks ago when my upload speed seemed to grind to halt. Normally I was able to upload about 200-300K per second, and I noticed this dropped to about 45K per second during a drop box upload. First thing I did was power cycle both my modem and router (in the proper/usual order). After they both come up, I start using speed test to find out what my upload speeds were. I was getting about 39Mbps down, but only .56Mbps up still. I factory reset my router.... test, similar speeds. Power cycle all computers (just in case), and then modem/router. Tested, similar speeds. Updated the firmware to the latest. Same issue
Called BHN customer service, they factor reset it, but it wasn't in bridge mode. If I by passed the 655, in factory mode (non bridge mode) upload speeds returned to better than expected states. If I bridged the cable modem, upload speeds seemed to crash.
Had BHN replace the modem, seemed fixed for a day, then issue came back. Had them come back out and replace it again, this time with a Motorolla Surfboard modem... same issue. Fine during factory reset, however after they bridge the modem, upload speeds were fine. Told BHN I would take it from there.. Connected up the DIR-655, and upload speeds crashed again. (.6Mbps). Called D-Link Support, and the Chinese English speaking rep seemed to not be listening to me and tried to have me adjust my MTU as well as Wireless settings. Long story short... the rep was a level 0 id10t and I hope D-link will consider hiring better employees/contractors. So I was all about to give up and replace it with a DD-WRT capable router (which it takes me a lot to want to swap hardware), when I discovered the wan shaping was on. Which I thought to myself... nah... QoS has never messed up before... why would it be the cause. Turned off wan shapping... and voila. Issue seemed to be insta-resolved.
Unsatisfied with that... I decided to dig a lil deeper. I turned on Wan shaping again, but decided to set the settings manually instead of auto detect.
Here are the settings I used... (Advanced Tab>QoS) Enable Traffic Shaping - Checked Automatic Uplink Speed - Unchecked Manual Uplink Speed - 5000 Connection Type: Cable or Other Broadand Network
Enable QoS Engine - Checked Automatic Classification - unchecked (this checked seemed to affect my upload speed by about 5-10% during testing) Dynamic Fragmentation - unchecked (this checked seemed to be the worse enemy for upload speed)
While I know I'm not any network guru (still have to use a subnet calculator for subnetting), I think I did a pretty good job drilling down the issue (once I got passed my service provider replacing modems).
Anyways, I've had overall good luck with D-Link products, even have a 5 port 10/100 switch (all metal) from 1998 that works great. Hopefully, D-Link will just either put more documentation on the web, or hire better employees.
I'm having really slow speeds surfing the internet, watching videos on sites like youtube, and downloading files. So i went to [URL] and found that my download speeds are only 1.3 mbps!! my upload is fine, around 5 mbps.I am wirelessly connected to the router, but the signal strength is fine.
I am facing with internet download speed reduced to 1/4th (500kbps) of promised speed (2Mbps).
ISP: Tikona India Type: Wireless unit at roof connected to PoE and ethernet cable OS:Win7 and ASUS Express Gate I am using the ISP for over a year and was happy but for past 1 month got issues.
The first service engineer came and changed the poer adapter, clipped the ethernet LAN cable. The AI NET 2 utility in BIOS showed the pair 1-2 and 3-4 are short. So second service engineer changed the cable, power adapter and router.
I hoped that things will get resolved but still the speed was slower so the enginner unplugged the LAN cable from my desktop and checked the speed in his laptop. He was getting 2.5Mbps. Then I checked in safe mode with networking and asus express gate but still got reduced speed from 500 to 600kbps.
I had a NIC replacement so tested with that also and got same reduced speed.
don't know what to do. For a good while now, at my home, the internet has been awful.Web pages barely load if at all, I can't play any online games, but when I start a download, either by torrent or regular, the download speed is perfectly fine, reaching the normal 500 kb/s. My router is TP-Link W9801G. We get TV through the router as well, and there never was any problem with it. It works fine, just like the download speed. The DNS and IP settings are all set to automatic like they should, and of course I've tried unplugging and resetting everything.I know it's not the computer's network adapter, because it's the same thing at my laptop when I connect to it wirelessly. The signal strength is at all 5 bars too
How much faster is a T1 (1.5 Mbs) link vs. a 128Kbs link? Is it as simple as dividing one into the other which would equal roughly 11 times faster? What will this look like for the user who goes from 128K one day to a T!
am not a network expert but I understand that the download speed is always higher than the upload speed, right? I just bought a new internet package that comes with 5 mb/s download speed. The Upload speed should be around 1 mb/s right? Speedtest.net gives me 5 mb/s download speed and 53.62 mb/s upload speed. I called my internet provider and the girl told me it is normal. How can that be normal? I also have another weird issue. When I try to watch a video (youtube, netflix, etc...) the video starts loading correctly but stops loading after 10-15 seconds. I did a download test by downloading Itunes and the download starts correctly at 600 KB/s but after a 2-6 seconds, the downloaded megabytes stop increasing and download speed just drops until it reaches 0 and the download cancels itself.
When I bypassed the router and connect my pc to the cable modem directly, my download and upload speeds are over 20mbps/10mbps. But when I connect my cable modem with the router, it reduced dramatically to under 10mbps/5mbps.So the bottleneck is with the router. How can I troubleshoot the router to remove this bottleneck?
In the household we have 3 computers. 1 computer upstairs is the main computer with the router. My computer and the girlfriends is downstairs on wireless. We are currently paying for a 7.5 Mbps download speed. The computer upstairs and my girlfriends computer which is 10 feet away, get speeds between 7.5 Mbps and 10 during boost. My computer during a speed test will spike to 7.5 Mbps and remain anywhere from 2 Mbps to 3.5, roughly have of what they have. I have tested both wireless devices on my computer and my girlfriends, no improvement. She is running a device plugged via usb, I'm running a wireless card. Tried her usb, no success. Went into Task Manager and processes looking for other programs that would eat bandwidth, no success. And played around for a little bit with the channel settings on my card. It is Asus 802.11n WirelessLanCard.

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.
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?
I am getting very slow download speeds on my wireless router (Linksys model#WRT160N). I measured it on speedtest.net. 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?
My provider is cable, Brighthouse, hooked up to their Scientific Atlanta modem and from there it is hooked up to a Belkin Connect N150 wireless router. I am not using the wireless on my laptop but am wired directly to the router. [code]
I Have BT Infinity and they are pushing 70mbps to my house ....i bought an EA6500 and i had real bad internet speed but amazing conection speed with my BT Home HUB3 ... 23Mbps with Cisco EA6500 and 68Mbps with my BT Home Hub3. I found out it was the Media Prioritization so just to be safe i reset my factory settings and made sure it was turned off. Just like magic i get the same now as the BT Home HUB3 .

my Wi-fi card is an Intel Centrino 130N. When I connect to the Internet directly, the speeds I get are: DL: 11 MBs and UL: 9 MBs. (I know the difference between MB and Mbits). Although, when I'm connected through wireless, I get: DL: 3.4 MBs and UL: 4.7 MBs.how do I get my DL speed to be higher than the UL speed in wireless mode ? I read somewhere I have to disable QoS and WMM, but I simply can't find that option in the router's settings. even if I am in the same room as my router, when I check the status of the wireless connection, the maximum speed is 72 mbps. Should that be 130 mbps, as I run it in N mode, not G? How to improve that ? I have Win 7 and all the latest drivers and everything.
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).
I did a search and came across this board because I too am having the same issues with wireless connection. I went as far as buying a new router, which like the original post stated, worked well for a few and then stopped. It's frustrating because I need the wireless connection for many items I use at home.
We recently bought a home and just moved in. That being the case, we got a new ISP (Cincinnati Bell DSL). The service is advertised as "Up to 5Mbps."
My current equipment:
PC: OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Version 6.1.7600 Build 7600 Other OS Description Not Available
So what can I do to achieve faster speeds? Am I limited by the hardware I have? My Dell is roughly 6 years old. Am I limited by Cincinnati Bell? Is it the location of the wireless router? Are there settings I can adjust to create a faster connection?
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.
I have a RCA modem from comcast high speed internet.Also have a Linksys Cisco Wireless-N Gigabit Router model # WRT310N V2. When I connect the internet directly into the computer, I get download speed up to 21.07 mbps and upload speed of 3.07. When I connect through the router download speed 1.31mbps and upload speed of 1.01.I have no clue how to make changes to the router.
I just got installed a business class internet service installed. Got the 25/5 line and when I perform the speed tests I get well above that with the speed boost on the lines.When I am downloading large files I am getting a constant 22-25 down and when I am uploading files I get the 5 up.... But I can't do both at the same time.What happens if my uploads kill my download speed so if I am uploading a file and taking up my 5 up it makes my download speeds about 2-3.. Comcast is saying that this is how the network works and I just don't want to accept that at this time as I have other internet providers that don't work this way and I get a true up/down at the same time. Unfortunately at this location that I am dealing with Comcast is the only choice.
I have recently acquired a network connection of 100Mbps download and upload, and a dir 615 with dd-wrt.
I made all the connections and configurations , and everything seems to work fine it says it's connected at 300 mbps wifi, except it is not . I tested the internet speed and got this :
80 mbps Upload 35 mbps Download
I know that connecting via wifi will loose bandwith, the problem ins't that, I just cant seem to find the cause for the download rate to be less than upload and not equal... , when connected to the cable I get a stable 100/100.
I have a synchronous 10 Mb connection to my isp which I have conneted to a CISCO asa 5510. I have done a lot of testing and there is a very noticable difference in my upload/dowload speeds.When I connect a laptop directly to the Cable from my ISP's equipment and have the NIC set to autosense, I get similair results for Download/Upload Speeds I have tested and get 9 plus down and 8 plus up.When I either connect the asa directly to this cable and set to either 100/Full or autosense OR I place a non-managed switch in between the asa and the ISP's equipment My upload speed drops dramataically. The Download speed stays about the same 8 Mb Plus but my upload falls off the face of the earth drops to about a 1Mb. I have noticed this many times when I am going from a cisco 800 series router to a Cisco ASA.This is severely limiting my ability to perform replication out from my locale.
On board NIC: Intel 82579V Gigabit Network Controller (asus sabertooth x79 motherboard)I installed the drivers for it from intel's site.f I set link speed to auto (chooses 100mbps full duplex) or 100mbps full or half duplex, any HTTP downloads get slowed to a crawl (30kbps) (steam downloads remain at normal speeds). If I set it to 10mbps full duplex, download speeds jump to normal (500kbps for most HTTP sources)his happens on just this new computer (wired connection), any other computers on the network (wireless) work just fine
As of right now, I don't have access to the PIX itself but can get access to it later today. In the meantime, I wanted to get everyone's opinions on a very peculiar issue I'm seeing with Internet download speeds.
Prior to last week, my company was utilizing a Sprint T1 connection for all visitor traffic. Attached to the Sprint T1 was a Cisco router -> C3524 Switch -> PIX-506E device.
Last week, a decision was made to upgrade our bandwidth for our visitor traffic and we replaced the T1 with a Comcast Business Class cable solution. The bandwidth we ordered was 22Mbit down/5Mbit up. From the cable modem that was provided, we connected it in the same manner -> C3524 Switch -> PIX-506E device.
Since the change, I noticed that our visitor V LAN hasn't really had much of a change in Internet speeds. Doing some quick speed tests, it shows that our download caps at around 5Mbit but our uploads are in the 22Mbit range.Thinking Comcast messed up and accidentally flipped our download/upload speeds, I was on the phone with them for almost an hour as we investigated the issue. They finally had me connect directly to the Comcast cable modem to test on my laptop. The results are that from the cable modem, the speeds are correct (I get 22Mbit down, 5Mbit up).
I'm not really sure how to troubleshoot this or where to even begin. At first I thought maybe our PIX couldn't handle the speeds, but it's handling the upload rate just fine. All I know this has to be equipment on our side since Comcast had me test directly from the cable modem.
I ru n the speed test from my desktop and laptop and the download speed are in the same range in both pc's, around 20mb/s. However the upload speed is higher in the laptop (around 4 mb/s) compared the desktop (300 kb/s)My connection is supposed to run at 50 mb/s and 5mb/s?
