I have a cable modem connected to a wireless router hard-wired to two separate ps3's. I am looking to get the optimum connection speeds out of my ps3. i have been told to use a switch instead of my router. i also want wireless in my house as well. modem switch (ps3 ps3 router)? if i connect my modem directly to one ps3 my ps3 will not find an ip address will this problem remain if i go through the switch or will it find an ip address? will this optimize my connection? will my connection be better if when not in use i unplug the thernet cable going to the wireless router from the switch? is there any other way to optimise my connection speed on my ps3?
How can I optimize my computer's connection speed? I'm using a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop, and I used to have Vista installed on it. When I used that, my connection(via speedtest.net) was around 25mbps. I reformatted it last Summer and installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 onto it. A few months ago, I used speedtest.net and my speed test was around 16mbps. Now, my speed test is 8mbps. How can I optimize my internet connection speed? My internet service provider is Comcast.
I need setting my 825 router on the best optimize setting for my ps3, Im running wireless on it and the router is about one room away from my ps3 which isnt that big of a difference since I am getting 95-100% signal on it, the issue is the rate speed runs about 36m-54m it NEVER, or at least I havent seen it go higher than that.I turned the QO6 engine but it didnt really change a thing, will running this wire do the majic? or is there another alternative set up I can do on the router to have it run on best settings.
How can I optimize my router to get maximum transfer speeds? I average 72 Mbps.Notebook-Speedtest.net 31.58Mbs down/3.08 up. I'm just confused about transfer speeds not being 300 Mbps. Can or should I correct this? When I purchased router it said the transfer speeds would be 300Mbps.
PC1: Connected directly through 1 gigabit ethernet LAN.I'm using a MSI GT640 notebook with a onboard NIC, Ralink Techology, Corp. 802.11bgn 1T1R mini Card wireless network adapter. Driver date: 7/6/2010, Driver Version: 18.104.22.168. ( WLAN RF module Ralink RT390, MSI MS 6891).
I have a WRT54GS v. 7.0 w/ the latest firmware. Im looking for ways to optimize the router for best performance.There are 4-5 iphones/ipads that will connect to it. 3-5 laptopsand one xboxNo wired connections.Im using COX internet on the west coast which provides good internet service. Im not an expert with networks or routers but i follow instructions real well. What can i do to my stock/default router to take 100% advantage of its capabilities?
I have been using a WRT-400n for a while with 2 pc's .. a tower close to it, and a laptop about 50 ft away in another room. As far a I can tell, I'm only using the 2.4GHz band on channel 11.We just added a Sony Bravia HD TV and a Sony Blu-ray VD player (which is really, as far as I can see, a cool internet access device which happens to play DVD's). Out favorite use is to watch TV shows and movies from Amazon. Problem is, streaming is very patchy, and sometimes what Amazon calls "connection speed" (which I think is really network bandwidth) gets so low thta the buffering fails, and we lose whatever we're watching.
I had an old LINKSYS WRT54GS whihc had a poor coverage of my whole home.I just bought a new E-3200 which is supposed to have a real higher coverage but seems not.When I am in a room at 15m from the routeur, no coverage !How can we optimize the coverage of the routeur ?
We are suffering slow https traffic download. We have a CISCO ASA 5550, Cisco Adaptive Security Appliance Software Version 8.0(5)19. When we try to download some videos from an https server we have a data download rate of about 140 kbps, but if we bypass the firewall and put a laptop just after the border router, data rate increase up to 350-400 kbps.
We configured a new interface in the firewall and we connected a laptop directly to the port in the ASA 5550, with a new ACL permit ip any any, just for test purposes, but data rate is still the same, 140 kbps.
My E3200 is set up with no encyrption/ security. The 5GHZ band is set to wireless N, channel width is set to Auto (20 or 40) channel is also set to auto. I have my 2 laptops connected on the 5GHZ band and both have excellent connection with 300mbps. I'm transfering some files between the 2 and an only getting 7MB (so ~56mbps). Both laptops are running windows 7 ultimate.
I've tried transfering music, videos, and some ISO's.
I have a home wireless network with a PC and a Mac.The PC surfs the net very nicely.The Mac, however, has trouble. It frequently gets stuck loading web pages and is noticeably slower than the PC. This has never been a problem before on a previous home network.The problem persists with all the types of wireless security (and with none at all) but does not occur when the Mac is attached to the router by cable.I've tried changing the DNS settings on the Mac to match those of the ISP.I disabled WPS. None of this has worked at all.The router and Mac both have the latest software versions.
I've got a HP netbook with an Atheros AR9285 wireless card that will only connect to my router at 75 Mbps. It doesn't matter if its right next to the router or a room away. The router is an E4200 running on mixed mode, auto channel, 2.4 Ghz, but the netbook is usually the only device connected. Or could it be a router configuration (its new)?
I have been using a D-Link DIR-600 for a couple of years now. And I haven't had any problems until maybe a couple of months ago. It all started with my internet just kind of dying (mostly in the eavnings) and not working until i rebooted the router. So I call my internet provider and they tell me to update firmware and to plug the internet straight into my computer instead to rule out everything at their end.After some time I manage to update firmware. Problem with internet sill remain but is not as frequent. I left it like that for a couple of weeks, but earlier this week i checked my connection speed and it says i have only 50mb/s after the firmware update. Since i had the weekend off I plugged the internet straight into my computer and get my full internet speed at about 90mb/s. After plugging in the router again I only get around 50 again.
This is my first attempt at configuring an 1801 and I am getting extreamly low bandwidth.Tests show up/down speeds on around 100kbps. I can't see any reason with the possible exception of the show dsl capacity values which never seem to change. How to point out my config error.
I have connected my Vista laptop to my old XP laptop using a network cable so that I can share files, printers, etc freely.I have forgotten the correct proceedure for doing this, although the two computers eventually, after a long time link up and I am able to share files. I have done nothing else. I have not entered numbers or anything. The number spaces are blank.I do not understand why it is working at all, but how do I speed up the connection?
I have lately been having trouble with the speed of my wireless connection. usually downloads can run at approx max 1.2MB/S i have noticed significant speed drops in my downloads - when i connect to the network it starts off at 130mpbs, but then quicky drops to 12mbps - no settings have been changed recently.

I am having issues with the connection speed between my computer and my router.We have an airport (time capsule) router and I have a realtek rtl8192ce wireless N card, running a fresh install of windows 7, all updates up to date. The problem I'm having is that I am only connecting to the network at either 1 or 7mbps. It (very) occasionally connects at 29mbps but this is only for a split second and still nowhere near the 300mbs rated speed. I don't expect it to be at 300, however nice it would be to have that,but I would just like a decent rate as my download speed is maxing out at around 2mbs and my upload speed is twice as fast. Another desktop in the same room, next to my current on which is also connecting wirelessly is downloading around 15mb. That connection is either at 29mbps or 56mbps.It is currently connected on channel 7, there is only one other network on that channel in range. Earlier it was connected on channel 10 and there were no other networks on that channel and the connection speed is no different.
I noticed my wireless connection was decently fast for my needs which was 13-15 up /5 down. I am in the next room from my study and around <10 ft away from the modem in the study. However today the internet was extremely slow for everyone in the house so I went to reset the modem. After resetting the modem I noticed that the internet speed went a bit up and so I used speedtest.net to see how fast the connection was in the study. The computer in the study is connected with a ethernet cable to the modem. I was amazed that the speed in the study was nearly double the amount. I understand that wireless connections are undoubtedly slower than a wired connection, but is it normal for the speed to drop by half when I am <10 ft away from the modem?
We're since long having a problem with a DSL internet connection. The connection goes down periodically, for short times, and when performing speed tests, the connection speed varies and is usually lower (0.7 Mbit/s) than what the ISP promises (1.5-2 Mbit/s). Moreover, what modem is being used seems to have an effect.Now, I want to trouble-shoot this and get some hard facts on the behaviour of the connection. I would like to do repeated speed tests over say 24 h or so. They should be done every 3 min or so (to catch short glitches).
My question is: what software tool can I use for this? I have been searching the internet for hours, downloading a handful of applications, without finding anything that I could use. There are loads of applications that log and graph the current upload and download speeds, but that's something else - I need a tool that downloads/uploads files from/to a server, in intervals specified by me (3 min), logging the result and presenting it graphically.
I've been having trouble recently with the buffer speeds on youtube.. i use google chrome, and i have a custom built pc with high end specsmy internet connection ranges from 50mb/s to 90mb/s as shown below(i pay for 100mb/s with virgin media, but the speed varies a lot throughout the day)I run a wired connection and have tested different cables, with no success.If i clear catche/browser history ECT i get a short-term buffer speed boost, but after a few minutes the buffering becomes super slow again.people in the same house are having there videos load instantly, with computer no were near as good hardware wise as mine and using a wireless connection.i've tried a few things.. none of witch have worked.. with my speeds i should be able to watch videos in HD and have them buffer instantly.. at this point i cant even watch them in 320p.
We have cable internet through a wireless router. It seems to be the case that after we have had a router for about a year, my wife begins having trouble with her internet connection; slow speed, no connection, weak signal, etc. Resetting the router and cable modem will fix the problem, but the fix is only for a short time (an hour or a day). We purchase and install a new router, and everything is fine for about a year, then the problems re-emerge.I can't believe that a router "wears out" after a year or so, but that is certainly how it appears.My wife has a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7, I have a Mac, and our son has a Samsung with WIN 7. I don't experience these problems, and my son does not to the extent my wife does. There is obviously something going on with the Toshiba or its interface with the router, but rebooting the computer doesn't have any effect.
I recently got cable internet that goes up to 20Mbps in download speed. I even went to an internet testing site to test the speed and got back a result of 17Mbps.Anyway, when I download a file, it's only downloading at 200KB/sec, and that's right after I tested the connection speed of 17Mbps. When I had DSL at 5Mbps, it went about 600KB/sec (which makes sense), now that I have this cable internet that's faster, the download speed is slower
Recently, I am having an issue with my LAN connection. After I boot up, I get the "two computer" icon in my system tray that stays active. When I mouse over it, it says "Local Area Network Speed 100 Mbps Status - Acquiring Network Address"However, I am connected to the internet and there seems to be no connectivity problems. And it has an IP address: 192.168.1.66 This "acquiring network address" will persist forever, (although sometimes it will quit). If I right-click and do repair, the problem disappears immediately.I am running Win XP SP3 and am connected by ethernet cable to an ATT-U-verse Gateway.For what it's worth, Windows takes a very long time to boot up -- it takes a while for the icon to appear, and then the boot process completes.
I have a belkin N750 DB router. I recently upgraded by internet service from 15Mbp to 30Mbp. If I connect my computer directly to the cable modem, I get 30Mbp throughput. However, if I connect the modem to the router my speed drops to 15Mbp. How do I get the router to support 30Mbp?
