WL-530g V2 Wireless Router / Random Drastic Internet Speed Decrease?
Sep 18, 2012
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.
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?
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?
I check all of the settings and changed the channel to see if it works. For some reason it disconnects my wireless internet at random times and i know before it never use to do that before with a older router. There is nothing blocking it, it worked before, and my computers can connect except two. The only thing i can guess is my wireless card.
I have setup the existing wifi router (couple of years ago) so do have the basic networking knowledge but am not up-to-speed with all the latest developments in the industry2. ISP have provided a '******' ADSL modem that i need to connect to get this whole netwrok working. its only supports ethernet connections - (i live in a third world country)3. I have installed a TP-link Wifi router (WR841Nd). The modem on stand-alone basis is fairly decent, covers decent range on ground floor (my house is fairly big and is double story building) but with few dead spots. It supports N series so speed is quite good as long as one is within range.
Problemi have been living with it for couple of years but since recently i have been experiencing a lot of drop-outs/random disconnections and slow speed. I have tested my wifi router at friend's place and it showed no signs of problems so it has to be my ADSL modem (phone line is fine, though i am not close to exchange but that is not an issues as my neighbours are using the same phone line/ISP and they dont have an issue)another problem i have is the coverage, my current wifi only covers the ground floor and i would like to extend this to upper portione am looking to change my ISP provided ADSL modem. The problem is i dont know if i buy an ADSL modem off amazon and whether it would work or not because the setup is not straight forward and the ISP staff is corrupt. They dont provide with quality hardware neither do they have technical competence so i literally have to beg them at time to at least come and see the problem.Question1: ISP provided ADSL modem replacementi know the settings for ISP modem so i can search how i can replicate the same with Billion but can this work?Question2: RAnge ExtenderI am thinking of buying couple of powerline wireless extenders from netgear.
Since last night 10/26/12 I have been experiencing random lag spikes on all games (Hawken Beta(installed yesterstay), Mechwarrior beta, MW3, and BF3).
* Framerates do NOT drop when the lag occurs * Lag last for 1-3 seconds * Lag occurs on both wireless and wired connections * Lag occurs when no one but myself is on the network and while others are on it as well * Only occurs while gaming as far as I can tell * Unsure if other computers on network are lagging because none of them are gaming computers * I have performed tests using SpeedTest and the ping/DL/UL speeds are normal * Tried turning off Anti-virus (Kaspersky). No Change * Ran virus and malware scans using Kaspersky and malwarebytes. Both negative results

Network running about 60 computers, most of which are running windows 7 professional. Some are on a domain, some are not.At (seemingly) random times, some computer on the network will lose the ability to browse websites (including the web interfaces of networked devices). I can't identify what circumstances cause this to occur. I only find out about it when someone calls me.From the affected computer:I can ping sites I can ping our Cyberoam UTM (which acts as our DNS, DHCP, and firewall)disabling/enabling connection doesn't fix the problem releasing/renewing ip doesn't fix the problem flushing dns doesnt fix the problem uninstalled antivirus on two test machines, problem still randomly manifests.replaced the Cyberoam with newer model users have claimed that if they wait a long period of time (40+ minutes) the problem sometimes resolves.rebooting the computer resolves the issue until it randomly occurs again changing the computer's mac address also resolves the issue until it randomly occurs again.
I currently use a Linksys E3200 and mainly direct connect it to my laptop. My current ISP is with Insightbb to which I use their 20.0 (20 Mbps) service. For the past 6 or 7 months I've had little to no issues with my internet connection until about a week ago. While directly connected to the E3200 I used to get up to about 20/21 Mbps at a constant rate. Yet now I'm lucky to get up to 13/14 Mbps. Also, the speed will sometimes fluctuate; shooting to as low as 8 Mbps and shooting as high as15 Mbps. I can verify that my ISP is not the issue. I've directly connected my laptop to the modem with success and received a healthy speed of up to 23 Mbps with no fluctuations. The problem only occurs once I directly connect to the router. Attempting to connect wirelessly shows the same, if not worse, problems.
I've attempted numerous factory resets and used the 30:30:30 method to no avail. I've tried power cycling the modem, router and laptop. I've tried disconnecting the router for up to 10 minutes. I've upgraded the firmware to the most recent update. I've tried setting a static IP. I've tried imputing the MTU manually. I've tried setting a MAC address clone. I've tried turning on/off UPnP. I've tried release/renewing my IP address. I've tried flushing my DNS. All of which I power cycled the router after each and every attempt.
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.
I have a E3000 router and I want to slow the upload and download speed to my Xbox is there any way to do this thru the router settings. I have internet that is about 20-30mbps down and 2-3mbps up I want to slow it to about 5-6mbps down and 1-2 mbps up.
I've a problem with the internet speed of my ADSL line(20Mega). Now I've the following components: D-link DSL-320 B (modem)+Cisco Linksys EA6500. If I start a Speed test the result its only 4M in download, while i remove the router and i connect my Pc directly to modem, the speed test results its 13-14M.
I came home yesterday and my Internet was really slow. I later found out that it was due to my Linksys E3000 because if I bypass my E3000 and go directly to my cable modem, it work just fine.I tried reconfigure, update firmware, factory reset and none of these has worked.
I have Wrt610n V1 Firmware V 1.00.03 B15 and internet 300 mb.If i connect PC to my internet bridge i have 300 mb. But when I switch between a WRT610n all ports have ~100mb. In router I removes all check marks from all security, filter.
I got 1Ggbit Internet. When i plug in PC i got 700+300+ on speedtest, if i plug in E3200 i got 9040. **bleep**?I play with all settings nothing works... In status he show 1 ggbit internet and 1 ggbit Ethernet but he gives less than 100 mbit....
I have an E2000 Wireless N Router setup to use WPA2/AES. I have Comcast cable internet service and I just upgraded to the 50Mbps speed. I have a Motorola Surfboard modem (DOCSIS 3.0).
If I connect my computer directly to the modem or to one of the ports on the E2000 I get great speeds sometimes up to 60Mbps but on average I am getting 45-48Mbps which is acceptable.
When I try to connect the same computer to the E2000 wirelessly my speed tests return a horrible 18-22Mbps. When I run these tests the computer is in the same room as the router. As I move throughout my house the speed tests are the same. My wireless connection speed to my laptop is good 144Mbps and 300Mbps depending on the band (2.4 or 5.0).
I have tried to use the 2.4ghz and 5.0ghz using different channels. I have also tried different "N Transmission Rate" settings. One of them (5 - 52Mpbs) does increase the speed to around 25-26Mpbs but that is all.
Strangely (or maybe not) the upload speeds are consistent on all of the tests at around 12Mpbs.
I am using Speedtest.net and Speakeasy for all of my tests.
Is there anyway I can get my wireless download speed up to around 40Mpbs? Or am I going to have to run cables through my house to the devices where I need these high speeds?
I also have upgraded to the latest firmware version.(1.0.04)
We recently purchased a Linksys E3200 router, because our old router didn't take advantage of our internet speed. The router works fine, though the internet speeds again isn't as much as expected.
With a wired connection, we only get 80 Mbit/s of our full 120 Mbit/s, according to Speedtest.net. The Cisco Connect built-in speed test is even worse; only 40 Mbit/s. When we directly plug the computer into the modem, we get the full 120 Mbit/s, which indicates that the modem does have the connection speed. The router just doesn't give it to the computers attached.
I don't know about my wireless speed, as my wireless card in the laptop clearly is the bottleneck (it can only connect at 65 Mbit/s). Atheros AR9285 ftw.
We tried different cables, the one included with the router gives the same speed.
I just bought a Cisco e1200 router... and the wireless connection is way too slow, when navigating through the web, but when using speed test, the connection seems fine, but still it even takes more than usual to open simple pages, lets say Google... i usually watch streams and now that i cannot do... when i connect directly i can do everything as usual...as i have read, i change channels, but still no improvement, i have the latest firmware, on my range there are only 2 more available connections... i even tried disabling/enabling the WMM... We all know that having extremely slow internet must be the real "Mayan apocalypse"
I have a Cisco E1000 v2. I updated to the latest Firmware 05/25/2011Ver.2.1.02 (Build 5).
Before doing this update I did get 300mbps N speeds. Now I don’t using the same settings, it max out at 144mbps speed. Also the router only seems to get B speeds when using a channel other than 11. I did do a hard reset after the firmware update.
Region : Brazil Model : TL-WR841ND Hardware Version : V7 Firmware Version : 3.13.9 (Last) ISP : NET Virtua
I've bought a TL-WD841ND and was using it normally.
After I arrived from a trip, the internet speed by wireless and by cable is only 0,5~0,7 Mbps...
My internet connection is 10 Mbps, and if I plug direct on the modem, there comes the real speed (9,7 Mbps), but connecting by the router, the speed is 1/20 of what should be. Before my travel i was using it normal, and no one has changed any configuration.
So i've updated to the last firmware avaliable on the website. So i've rebooted it and the "configuration" LED keeps flashing...
I would like to know if this led flashing is normal: (here is a video that i've done: [URL] and what could be happening. ps: connecting by cable, the internet speed is also the same (even after the factory settings reset)...
My Cisco E3000 has slowed it's Ethernet speed so slow that it times out when going to Facebook, YouTube or any site that is complex. It worked fine until one day it just gave up. It's connected to DSL Modem with Ethernet To a Apple Mac G5 power PC There are two other older macs connected via Ethernet, same problem. When I took the router out of the chain, and connected G5 directly to modem, normal internet speed. My firmware is up to date. Both wireless bands work great. When I look at Cisco Connect, everything looks normal. factory settings.
I own a ea4500 wireless router, I have tested the speed at speedtest.net and wirelessly I get around 9 mbps. My speed is 23 mbps when I hard wired the pc. I have check the speed on a tablet ( android ), pc and a mac to about 5 feet away from the router with no walls or anything between the two devices.I have checked all the settings but I don't see anything wrong, I have changed to N mode only to make sure I use top speed.All my devices are able to use N.
I have a Linksys WRV200 and I wanted to know how can I restrict the internet speed for each computer on my network. Example: if my connection is 2 Mbps, One computer should have 1 Mpbs guaranteed, and the rest should split the rest.
I just recently purchased comcast internet today and self installation kit that came with the modem and all..... got it all set up no problems activated did speed test directly from cable modem to laptop computer wired and was getting 10mbps down and 3mbps up well went out and bought a linksys e900 wireless router.... connected it no problems... however my laptop wireless and phones connected to the router with speedtest is only getting 300kbps down average!!! but the upload is still 3mbps.
I have the WRT54G v2.2 router. I have Comcast internet service. Comcast has just increased their internet download speed to 50Mbps. With a wired computer (not wireless), connected directly to the router, the fastest internet download speed I get is 30Mbps. When I called Comcast's technical support, they are telling me I need a new router as the older routers can't handle these high internet speeds.
My situation before I bought the router: - my Internet speed is 120/20 (Mbps download / Mbps upload) - speed test with my ISP gives 125/20 for 99% of the tests- speed test with [URL] gives 125/20 for 99% of the tests - I never have had a router; my PC is connected directly to the cable modem - My ISP is Vidéotron from Quebec in Canada : [URL]
My new situation with the new router : - last Tuesday, I bought the router Cisco Linksys E4200 - the installation went fine and Internet works well - during the installation process, the firmware is upgraded to 1.0.03 - speed test with my ISP gives 100/20 for 99% of the tests - speed test with [URL] gives 100/20 for 99% of the tests
My observations : - according to router status port, Internet port is 1 Gbps - according to router status port, port 1 (where my PC is connected) is 1 Gbps - it seems that speed cannot get more than 100/20 with the new router - when I disconnect the router and I reconnect my PC directly to the modem cable, I still get 125/20
Calling Cisco support : - Many tests are done during 3 chat sessions - The speed is still 100/20 - The recommendation is to replace the router with a new one
Friend support : - A friend of mine brought his router which is the same as mine- The speed is still 100/20 with his router
New router : - As recommended by Cisco support, I got the router replaced from the store. - I installed the new router - During the installation process, the firmware is not upgraded; the firmware is 1.0.01 - The speed is now 125/20 - I upgraded the firmware to 1.0.03 - The speed is now 120/20 - I downgraded the firmware to 1.0.01 - The speed is now 125/20
Conclusion : - My speed is maximized at 100/20 with the firmware 1.0.03 - I will stay with firmware 1.0.01 until firmware1.0.03 is corrected.
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 Arris DLS with 12 Mbps Download and when I Connect my laptop directly I get the same speed as 12 Mbps but when I do the speed test with my linksys I get only 5 Mbps. How to upgrade to the new WRT54GL or WRT54GS?
