Wireless Computer Internet Speed 16mbps / Wired Computer 0.4mbps
Mar 24, 2011
I am with Virgin media (UK) and have the 20mbps fiber optic connection. My area has recently been having problems with the broadband and Virgin has recently fixed these problems. However I used to get around 19mbps now that the problem is fixed my computer which is wired to the router gets about 0.4mbps downstream... However the 5 wireless computers all get 16mbps which is pretty good for them. Windows tells me that its a firewall issue and I currently can't use two programs, spotify and steam. They both have firewall issues, even if I turn off my firewall which is the windows one. I also have avast, and when I turn that off, still no good. I used OpenDNS, stopped using that flushed my DNS, that didnt work. I tried to optimize my computer settings, by changing various values in Regedit.All of this has done nothing. I should add that I have recently re-installed Windows 7 so on this fresh install it has never had decent internet speed. Which I thought was weird.. I have basically had these problems since the fresh install. All of my drivers are up to date.
I have a problem with my download speed. I'm supposed to have a speed of 60 MBPS and when I collect my computer direct to the modem I received it but with my e2000 router, the 3 computer connected to it can't reach more than 30 MBPS. I just updated the firmware of the router to the newest version but nothing changed.
computer suddenly would not acquire internet wired or wireless while at university. Local techies tried to fix but no luck. I'm trying to fix this but nothing has worked yet. Seems to be a problem aquiring an ip address. I've matched all the settings from my other dell laptop which connects no problem.
I am having trouble with my internet speed at my computer my provder says the speed is fine from their end 100mbps but when i check the speed at my end i am only getting 32mbps the other clue is when I am on a web page it constantky flickers. I have reset the router by turning off the power and then back on the other thing i have done is change the ethernet cable.
I have a Belkin F5D8636-4 v2 N Wireless Modem Router. For some reason, it will only connect to the internet if the wired computer is plugged in and on. I tried starting the router without it plugged in and it kept trying and failing to connect to the internet. As soon as I plugged in the wired computer it connected to the internet. jhb019 has chosen the best answer to his/her question.Click here to view the answer that was selected.
I woke up and my computer just refused to connect to internet. My roomates computer connects fine to the same modem (we use adsl). I tried switching cables and ports. The night before, my computer had an unexpected shutdown...
I am working on a small business network. 8-10 computers, usually only 3-4 being used at any one time. I'm trying to improve network file transfer speeds between the local machines and a network READYNAS NV+. There are both 32 and 64 bit OS's in play. Between the READYNAS and the local machines are two non-managed switches (jumbo frames capable) and a patch panel. The cable from the READYNAS goes into the first switch, then out of that into the patch panel then into the second switch, and then out to several local machines.
Though i would love to improve performance to all the local machines, I am primarily concerned with one in particular. It has Windows 7 64 bit and an onboard Broadcom Netlink Gigabit network adapter. This device does NOT have a Jumbo frames option in the advanced settings. Here's the issue: When copying files from the READYNAS the upload speed is only 16mbps (jumbo frames enabled on the READYNAS) if I turn jumbo frames off on the READYNAS the upload speed drops to 9mbps. Just FYI, this is a photography studio and the files are always LARGE.
I have several questions that hopefully will lead to an illuminating discussion. 1) Is it possible that the universal patch is in any way a problem? Sorry if that is totally stupid, but I've never encountered one before. I understand routers and switches, but this patch thing is new to my experience. 2) Is having two switches a bottleneck? 3) Is it possible that the onboard Broadcom network adapter is junk? Why doesn't it have jumbo frames options? 4) Could I get better performance from an add on network card in a PCI-E slot and a couple of managed switches?I realize I'm all over the map here. Bottom line, I've got a small network situation here. Very simple, uncomplicated layout. All I want is better read/write performance to a single READYNAS NV+ to a handful of local machines. If I need to settle, I can live with better performance to the one single machine. 16mbps just seems tragically slow.

I've just bought a TP-Link TL_WR1043ND and when I was configuring the wireless settings first I had a +- 40Mbps connection,a little later the connection dropped to 4Mbps and was constantly dropping the speed.Sometimes it went to 15Mbps and then it drops back to 4Mbps.Right now its only 1Mbps.

how to block a user from using the internet when they plug their computer into a router. My roommate has refused to pay her share of the internet and, being a college student, I don't have enough money where I feel generous enough to let her have free internet after stiffing me. Basically, I have 2 routers at the moment (hoping to fix this soon): my Qwest modem works as a router but I also have a Linksys router connected to it. The only phone jack is in her room so I have no way of stopping her from plugging her computer straight into the modem and/or router. I've configured the wireless so that she would be unable to access the, wirelessly but I'd like to know how to prevent her accessing the internet when she plugs her computer directly into either component.
My Main computer (which has a wired connection to router) internet is running so slow, i mean so slow that i cannot even do a speed test, it keeps failing, im continuously getting server timed out messages when browsing, and to watch a youtube video of 1 minute long it will take about 5 - 10 minutes to stream it before i can watch it. However despite the above the two laptops and ipad work great, i have a braodband speed of around 16megs. Now here is everything i have done so far. After calling my ISP to se if it was their fault, which it turned out not to be, they got me to change all the DNS and IP settings to manual, they gave me all the numbers to put in. Again that did not work so i used namebench to find the quickest DNS servers for me, that didnt work ethier so i just reverted all settings back to automatic as they were before.
I pay for a 50mb service and reguarly check the download speed I was getting. I would always get between 45-50mb. However I went on holiday for a few days, and so I turned all the plugs off at the wall(something I never do) and since I got home im getting speed of around 20-25mb. I called the engineer out but he wasnt able to do anything because when he connected it to his laptop, he was getting speeds of 47mb. He said he didnt know why i was getting such a slow speed through my desktop, just said it must have something to do with my computer.
I have a home network that uses a DLINK DIR-655 router. All of my devices ( a mix of wireless and wired) except one--a windows xp SP 3 desktop that stopped working yesterday. Some viruses, and adware were detected and it has not worked since then. What I have done.
When wired to the router I consistently get 10meg up and down, so the connection itself is fine. When I use wireless on my laptop, I get around 0.1meg down and 10meg up. The router is fine because I still get 10meg up and down testing on my iPhone, and the laptop is fine because I get 8meg up and down on my friend's wireless network. There must be something specific that's incompatible between my laptop and my router. I've already tried changing the channel, used inSSIDer to pick unoccupied channels (4+8) with no occupied channels either side. Using N-only mode, channel bonding, tried protected mode on and off, QoS on and off.
My desktop computer doesn't have a wireless card in it. i also have a laptop which does have a wireless card. I was wondering if there is a way i can take the wireless connection and re-transmit it to the desktop through ethernet. I have a 5-port switch. I don't really know much about networking. but i am knowledgeable in computers. laptop has windows 7 on it. i really would prefer to not buy a wireless card for the desktop.
I'm desperately trying to set up my old D-Link DI-524 on my parent's Toshiba laptop...I'm visiting and going thru withdrawals! I've installed it, run the wizard etc but it doesn't work...not even wired. I've tried various cable configurations and I get nothing. Both cables are good and work just fine connected to the modem. I've reset it a few times, upgraded the firmware and still nothing...I'd think I'd at least get it to work hard wired. My laptop can see the network I set up even...but no data transmission. I'm not a wireless expert, but I need to become one fast!
I recently built a new computer and it runs a wired connection. I was having problems with dns dropping.until i set static ip and dns. But now whenever my computer is on my router doesn't broadcast a wireless signal and none of my devices can connect to wireless until I turn off my computer. The router is a linksys wrt54g2
Installed E4200 with an iMac running MacOS X Version 10.6.8. Wireless connection works great. Also connected a wireless laptop without a problem. But can't connect a 2nd computer is wired. That is a PC running Vista. I know the wiring is good, because the E4200 is a replacement router in a network that was working fine.
1 newer build computer connected to D-link 655 via Cat6.1 laptop computer connected to same D-link 655 via Wireless N minicard. (Intel) (130Mbps connected) Router on a 10 foot shelf, always have full bar in wireless strength on 2nd computer.
Both computers can upload and download as expected from the internet. Transfers between the two computers though are slow. Both computers are loaded with Windows 7. Transferring files to or from the laptop transfers at 1.5MB/sec to 2 MB/sec.
I just brought this belkin wireless usb adapter N150 and it is giving me slow download speed. I checked on Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test and it gives me 0.20 mbps it is not going to the max my max is 3.00 mbps it is not the wireless usb adapter because i checked on another computer and it went to the max 3.00 mbps and i putted it in the same location as my computer so than i realised that it was my computer that is giving slow download speed and it can't find much connections.
I just now installed a new EA4500 Router. It installed itself automatically without a problem, by running the setup CD. No devices other than my hard wired computer and modem are connected yet.
When I went into Start > Cisco Connect to look around and check it's version, etc., I immediately got a "There's an important update for your router" notice. My concern is not wanting to install The Cloud at this time (although I wouldn't rule it out later). There has not been a trace of it so far.
I currently have Firmware Version: 18.104.22.168507 and Software Version: 1.4.12100.0. What this Important Update may be? Is it the "dreaded" Cloud? I'd rather avoid the whole rolling back to pre-Cloud issue for now, if possible.
I have the E4200 with latest firmware . When I connect my computer to the E4200 and that to my modem im getting about 50mb speed. If I disconnect the E4200 and connect my computer straight to the modem I get about 95mb speed?I have the Virgin Broadband 100mb service and all is working fine at their end.
I have a netgear router, the pc I want to print from is connected via ethernet strait to router with Vista Ultimate OS. The computer the printer is hooked up to is connected via usb wireless adapter with Windows XP OS. Can I print from my computer hooked up via Ethernet from the computer that is hooked up wireless.
I had a power surge caused by the local electrical provider on February 3, 2011. Since then my computer power source was replaced and the computer works okay. Since the power surge my speed to uploading and downloading on the internet is inconsistent. Time Warner, my internet provider, said it was an internet problem and they replaced the modem, and have worked on their lines multiple times and now say it's a computer problem, not with their wiring. Yesterday I could not get an upload or download signal at all. This morning my download was 29.23 and upload 1.91. Some days it will take 4-5 yours to send an e-mail. I don't know what to do.
I bought a new laptop today, unfortunately, it doesnt have a Firewire port and i want to use it for video editing.But i figured no problem really, i'll just capture on my desktop that i have been previously using to edit on, using Premiere pro to edit, but HDVsplit to capture, and then transfer the files over to the laptop using a USB or possibly trying to setup a home network.But when transferring files from the desktop onto the laptop via the router using ethernet cables, the speed is about 250 kb/s and when its the other way around, from the laptop to the desktop, the speed is 10 MB/s! I really need to find away to speed this up as the overall files i want to transfer are over 5GB.You can read a bit more about it here: [URL]
When connected to my router on my main desktop, I get download speeds of about .3-.85 mbps, I have comcast and a linksys N router, as well as a N wireless adapter in my desktop. If I use my laptop, I get around 10 mbps download speed, (Speeds are as of [URL]) but they still remain at .3 mbps on my desktop. I have tried two different wireless adapters in my computer. One is the Linksys AE2500 Dual Band N adapter, and the other is an ASUS N13 N Adapter. I have gotten the latest drivers of both adapters, but speeds stayed very low. When I connected the computer via ethernet cable, it ran at 16mbps. So I think that something must be wrong with some wireless settings, since I've tried 2 different adapters and was getting the same result, unless both were faulty I suppose. I also don't think it's my router's issue, because the wireless is working great on other wireless devices. I am using windows 7 on the desktop.
