About a week ago i started experiencing very slow download speeds... things like streaming online videos and having to wait which i have not had to do for the last 4 years. I did a speed test on multiple sites and my download speed comes out at about .2mbps and my upload is still where it should be at .6-.8mbps. I have a 12mbps connection so this does not make sense at all. Originally thinking it was malware, I formatted both my hard drives and did a clean install of windows 7 and it did nothing to resolve the issue. Could it be that my wireless card's radio is failing?
My Download Speed was about 10mbps and i be came around 1-5kbps.Is there any software for internet connections like just choose your download and upload speed then restart your computer and your download and upload will be very fast then anything
I've had the E3000 installed for several years and a few days ago saw my download speed drop by 80%. Trouble shooting with the Cable provider ended up with connecting directly from the PC to the modem and the speed issue was corrected. I don't see any recent changes in firmware, no new programs.
We have a WDS connection between two AP541 access points, where one AP is connected to a SA540 with cable. The AP in the other end of the WDS does just act as a repeater, broadcasting using the same SSID and channel with WPA-PSK, as the cabled AP. For the WDS channel, we have tried WPA/WEP/none encryption without any difference. Spanning tree is enabled. 802.11 mode is 'bgn'.
Sitting physically beside the remote AP (the "other" and uncabled end of WDS) with a laptop using Intel 802.11bg adapter, we get a speed in the range 5-7Mbit/sec connecting to the cabled AP (3 of 5 bars signal strength in the traybar icon on Win7). But switching to the remote AP, which is beeing feed by the WDS from the same cabled AP previously being connected to, we do just get a measured bandwidth of 1-2Mbit/sec. I understand that some throughput is lost using WDS, but this does still look like a big decrease?Any experience using WDS with AP541, who can comment on if this is expected or not, and eventually any thing we can do to increase the speed?
I've been having this problem for quite some time, mostly since my mother bought her first Asus Laptop that came with an Asus WL-530g V2 wireless router.Problem is sometimes I get a random disconnect where Local Area Connection is identifying. On some occasions it reconnects on it's own after a few seconds, other times I have to diagnose the problem and I get a "Windows doesn't have a valid IP config" problem but it fixes that.The other problem, and I don't know if the two are related is that very often, for short/long periods of time I get a drastic reduction of internet speed. From what I can tell, it's got to be something to do with the network configuration or the actual router itself, it's very old and Asus stopped making firmware for it in '09. Useful data Basically I have a wired connection from my desktop to the wireless router.
In my last thread I had difficulties setting up access to my FTP server through the RV220W router. After getting it to work, I faced a new issue of reduced upload speed. 240ish KB/S which is obviously ridiculously slow. After much toying around, I finally got it to work again, after doing a factory reset of the router. But today when I wanted to upload to my friends NAS, I suddenly am faced with reduced speeds yet again(400KB/S)! settings, with one firewall rule added, to allow access to my FTP. Other than that, I also enabled jumbo frames....so I tried disabling that again. But that did nothing. Also tried disabling every firewall feature under "attack prevention" but, didn't seem to work either.I didn't reboot the router with each change, as that would make things take a lot longer....and didn't think it should be necessary?
I'm starting to get more and more tired of using my RV220W....seems slow and buggy..when I do a online speedtest, I get a 30Mb/30Mb down/upload rating, which matches the rating I pay my ISP for.... And I have a fiber 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.
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.
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
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 have Verizon DSL. Since I've gotten it turned on in my new apartment it's been randomly DCing, I had a tech come out and tell me it was because I'm too far from the central office(thought I'm only a mile from the office?) and I needed to call and get my mbps reduced from 10, to 5. So, I called and did that and I was still having the same issue. Today another tech came out, told me the same thing, but I needed to be reduced to 3, and left. I called and got it reduced again. They said it should be 3-5 and I was at 5-7. So, now my download speed is actually higher than it was when I was 5-7(it was at 3 mbps usually, now it's 5), but my ping has doubled. Pages are taking longer to load, and when I play any games online there's a noticeable delay. I have been DCing less often, but it's still happening.
Speedtest.net always says i'm getting around 3 MB.Znet is always higher. Around 3.5MBTestMy.net gives me 5.4MB. On my Netgear router staus page it says my DownStream Connection Speed is 3776 kbps.Also, when i download a game on Steam, it often downloads at 600kbs or above.Which speed is more accurate?
I'm using 50MB/s hub provided by virgin media. The thing is everything works perfectly fine except the download speed on my personal unit worries me a bit. As I perform download speed test online, at my unit, I usually get the speed of 40 up to 49.7 MB/s, upload 0.7 - 1.5MB/s. However in case of downloading the same file from the same source other pc at our home network usually download it at twice or trice the speed my unit does. I'm positive that my card is capable of speeds up to 100MB/s.
I got a wireless network in my flat On this network is a laptop Pachard Bell EasyNote TK and a self build desktop. Both with Windows 7 I pay for broadbandspeed 50/5 and up to a week ago it was ok.But suddely the broabandspeed on my desktop was only 20/5.I have used all the ad/virus software.I have run wireless.exe on my desktop and here is the report.
I have QWEST DSL, and I am supposed to get 1mb + download speeds from them. When I talk to them on the phone they test my line at over 1mb and say any problems had to be on my end.
I have replaced my router and my network card. When I test my connection speed at this website CNET Bandwidth Meter: Online Speed Test - CNET Reviews
I get 1.2 mb/sec but I have never gotten better than 160 kb/sec download speed from any website I've downloaded from. Is this a software issue? Is my computer somehow throttling what it receives?
I did a Line Quality Test here DSL Reports and it is here: Line quality test packet loss and latency | DSLReports.com, ISP Information
I did three tests, and the bottom part failed 4 times out of 6, so the failures are repeatable. The data all looks comparable for each test on a cursory examination, not knowing what I am looking for.
I have no idea what this test means/indicates.
So my questions are:
1) What further information do I need to supply? (Assume I don't know how to do what you are asking me to do if it is in the least bit technical.)
2) Is my problem with my phone lines? I live in an older area and the lines have not been updated in decades so it may be that QWEST is claiming they can deliver more then they actually can.
At this point I suspect I will need to get cable in order to get decent download speed, QWEST doesn't offer service at the speed I get, so I can't opt for a lower price/slower speed option from them even though they are not delivering what I am promised.
I have a Mac and a PC in my home wireless network. ATT Uverse provides me with 16 MB/s internet access. I use the ATT wireless modem/router.With the Mac my download speed is almost 16 MB/s so everything seems working well.With my PC (WIN XP) the download speed is limited to less than 6 MB/s. I know that there is a way to allow my PC to speed up but I do not know how.
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?
I'm paying for a 50 mbs connection. So what should I expect to have as a general connection speed? I know it changes depending on where you are and where your downloading from etc. But I have this old killxenos nic that might be restricting my download speed? Im getting about 3mbs. Ive gotta be able to get more then that right? Like don't tell me I'm paying for 50 but I only get 3.
NOTE: *this is not a duplicate thread that was closed by valis, its just a lil misunderstanding, i was just showing my download speeds on the applications i used that shows 50kb/s and not torrenting issues*My download speed are always limited to nearly 50kb/s, it cant possibly reach as high as 100kb/s not like last month that shows my download speed at the maximum of nearly 1mb/s On any direct downloadseven using download managers that speeds your downloading tasks to 10x its speed, its always 50 to 60kb/s not even reaching 100kb/s it sucks!! it doesn't even multiply my download speed into 2x[CODE]
The title of the thread says it all, but perhaps it does not speak to the level of frustration my family and I are experiencing with our DSL internet service:� Many simple, easy-to-load sites like Google will not load on the first try. On Safari, the bottom toolbar will say "Connecting to google.com" until I refresh the page or restart the web browser. Internet Explorer and Firefox are no better -- I've triedA two-minute YouTube video will take about 10 minutes to load (if the page loads in the first place, which it often does not). Speed test sites, like speedtest.net, which reported a 0.05 mbps download speed and a 0.20 mbps upload speed, usually do not work. I had to refresh speedtest.net four or five times before the "testing download speed" section worked.
Gmail has become so slow that I have to use the HTML version, and even that will fail to register my commands about half the time.The only way for me to view most webpages in a reliable manner is to Google search for them, then click on the "Cached" page, and then click "Text-only version." Stuff other than text will prevent the page from loading about 50% of the time.We have a Qwest modem but our ISP is called "TIES." We have their "Residential DSL connection," as described here:
My download speed has decreased to about 1/40th of its previous speed, while my upload speed remains the same. Speedtest shows that my connection is equally strong as it was prior to the slowdown, even though I can't even get anything close to my original speed.Fully detailed version: About a week ago, my download speed decreased from 2 megabytes/s to about 50 kb/s. Prior to the speed decrease, I did not install or update any programs, so it's probably not an interference from some wayward program.
I have been looking at a PC which has a low download speed, 1180Kbps, when access the Internet via a 3COM wireless access point. This access point has the number 7000-000-732 but I cannot see such a model on the Net.. The nearest similar one seems to be the 3Com� Wireless 7760 11a/b/g PoE Access Point.
I recently purchased a new HP ENVY dv6 laptop which runs on Windows 8. I've noticed a significant drop in wireless speed on my network compared to my previous laptop, a Sony VAIO, which runs on Windows Vista. I don't believe that it is my network's problem; when I ran Speedtests on my two laptops, side-by-side, the VAIO had a greater download speed. Both computers are also fully updated, including the drivers; the VAIO laptop is four years old, and the HP ENVY dv6 just came out of the factory two weeks ago.
I have a cable lan connection for internet.i check speedtest.net for the results and it showed.9mbps download speed and .10 mbps upload speed.but when i download something i only get 0.45 mbps speed.Sometimes i get 9mbps but not often.But speedtest.net always shows my speed to be 9mbps.So that makes me guess , that there is actually 9 mbps available.now how do i utilize it.?
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!
After many many problems with my PC's wireless card since i bought it, i have finally got it to connect to the internet, and to allow myself to browse the web, but yet another problem has occurred, my download rate goes from fast (opening 4 links in quick succession) and all content is on the screen, to 20 seconds later, not being able to open 1 link without seeing a white screen, and it very slowly downloading all the stuff on the page, and this happens at random. so basically my internet goes from quick to slow to quick to slow
I am trying to get a internet broadband connection through USB stick.. While speaking to the vendor. he said that they offer 3.1Mbps speed (no roaming charges)...all of this is understood...but they say that after 5GB of download the speed will reduce to 28Kbps....Can I know what do they mean by this.And how do I go ensuring how many GB have I completed my download.
