So I had an iphone 4 and switched my signal to B and G only to get better service since my iPhone 4 only had G so not worth having N.Speedtest.net is about 5.69mbps download.I got a new iphone 5 and switch to G and N mixed thinking I'd get better speeds.When I switched speeds stayed about the same.
I do want a mixed signal if possible for PS3, other iphone 4, and laptops that don't have N wireless.Is that to be expected? or is something else going on that I'm missing?I'm running Firmware Version: 1.35NA and Hardware Version: A4
I just read online that in order to get real life high speed from your N router you need to set it to only N, or not have any other G devices connected. If not it wil fall back on the G speed.Here the text:" Wireless N claims "real world" speeds of 130-160Mbps, with a listed maximum of 300Mbps. This is reliant on the router transmitting in full 802.11n mode, which is impossible when an 802.11g device is also connected to the network."And if so. What is real life expected speed on the dir 655 on a wireless 300 card excelent connection either with pure N and then with combined N/G?
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.
So i'm behind a fiber 100mbit connection, and for the past few weeks i've been noticing overall slowness on everything video related, from youtube to any kind of stream using flash video.If I try to watch a video on youtube it will constantly buffer, the same with stuff like ustream and the like.
The odd thing is that I have VPN service that I use to avoid regional restrictions, and when I use it to stream anything, then all the videos and streams are silky smooth and load pretty quickly which is odd since It should work on reverse. Also, a speed test through the proxy gives me no more than 10mbit, while without the proxy I get 95+mbit.
Is it something with the router? I've never heard of the ISP throttling stuff.Like I said, everything works perfectly, except video streams. I can max out torrents at more than 10 MB/s.The router im using is a D-link dir-855 (provided by my isp). I head about disabling QoS.
I cant figure it out and can not find a solution. All three computers have gigabit nics, I have gigabit router and switch, my d-link 321 is set to gigabit, the only thing on my network that is not gigabit is my printer. I'm not getting gigabit transfer speed from my computer to dlink 321. I rarely do computer to computer transfers, so I dont know what the speed is of that. The best tranfer rate is from 7-12mb. I am also using cat 5e wires on all connections. What am I missing?
I have a DI-604 D-link router, is it necessay to upgrade to newer router to get faster access to internet? Upgrade Firmware? I have a PD950 processor with Win XP pro and use it for DAYTRADING streaming data and fast executions.
If i go wired i get 100mbps on both my laptop and desktop unit if i switch to wireless they both go 135 to 150 mbps any ideas? both units have megabit cards. My laptop i use at work at 1.0gbps no problem. It doesnt change no mater where i plug into at home or with different cables same speeds
I live in an apartment complex with a few other roommates. We each have an ethernet cable jack in our rooms, and we also have a wireless router located in one of my roommates' rooms that we all use for WIFI. when connected to only WIFI, my interenet connection is faster than using an ethernet cable? Our WIFI network displays a speed of 65Mbps, while the ethernet network shows a 10Mbps.
I recently upgraded my internet speed from 16/Mbps to 50/Mbps download I have a linksys E2500 dual band router and various wireless devices. Some of the devices are not N capable and I don't expect they will benefit from the enhanced speed. However my N capable devices are not receiving the upgraded speed as well. I have them set to WPA2 personal and the only way I can get the 50/Mbps download rate is to bypass wireless and use an ethernet cable. If I do this then I get the speed I want and if I use Wi-Fi I get around 20/Mbps.
In University, the Wifi on my iPod is exceptionally fast. At home, I can't even load a Youtube video (music, no video) without having to give it about 20 minutes to let it buffer half way through, and the same thing on my Android phone. My Laptop is also on the network, but it is no where near as slow. I noticed the internet isn't as slow as Youtube is, so I guess it is just mainly streaming media that is slow. I have the D-Link DIR-185. I don't want to reset it, as it took me ages to get my printer set up on the network but if there are no solutions I might have to. As I am typing, the video has buffered 1/2 of the way there. I type 110WPM, so give it two minutes.
My current home set-up is two desktops on Xfinity internet, using a MOTOROLA SB5120 modem pared with a WRT160N V3 router.I was told that my router was bottlenecking my download speeds. It is quite annoying when we can't download anything because it will slow any gameplay going on, we have to do one thing a time. Even Youtube videos will slow us down.[code] would I benefit from getting a new modem or router.
why my wireless connection on my laptop is significantly better than my wired connection to my desktop. Internet ran just fine on the desktop at my old apartment; got to the new place, and now it's having serious issues.
After working on this problem for a while, I have come to the conclusion that for some reason, I am getting serious packet loss, consistently, at a particular "hop" on my desktop, which is not present on the laptop.Here are the Line Quality tests that illustrate the problem better than I could ever describe it in words:
Laptop: Line quality test packet loss and latency | DSLReports.com, ISP Information
Desktop: Line quality test packet loss and latency | DSLReports.com, ISP Information(and it appears they both fail the initial test, but the laptop connection runs just fine).
So at that one specific hop (ae-1-0.cr0.chi10.tbone.rr.com, I have no idea what that means), my desktop connection suffers serious packet loss while the laptop is more or less OK.This discrepancy is evident in the quality of connection on my desktop, while the laptop runs just fine. Here, in summary, is what I have tried:
-Going wired through laptop using same cables, ports, and router as desktop: laptop performs flawlessly.
-Updating router firmware, NIC card drivers, and Windows on the desktop
-Full virus disk scan and boot scan using Avast; full malware scan using Malwarebytes; Windows disk defrag
All of these actions together have made the desktop connection USABLE... however it is by no means an acceptable level of quality for a cable connection, and not nearly as good as any other in the apartment gets using the same connection, whether wired or wireless.The only visible difference I can find between the laptop and the desktop is the packet loss that is present at that one hop in particular, which is extremely debilitating for the desktop's connection.
Desktop specs: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller NIC (onboard on the mobo) Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP3 Intel Core 2 Duo E8400, 3GHz 2 GB Ram Plenty of Disk space

Here is the previous thread that details my troubleshooting efforts thus far; as the question has now become something entirely different, I thought it more appropriate to make a new thread. Wiresless faster than wired connection
I have another odd issue (I get those alot) I have an asterisk box that moves around between 2 IPs, thus the dial-peers are unpredictable as to their target IP. They work as the dial-peer will eventually (after 1 min) time out and go to the other dial peer, but waiting 1 min sucks, and it's a tiny network, 5-10 sec would be WAY more than enouph. Does anyone know off hand a way to get them to time out faster?
I have a couple of pc's between which I transfer video files using Wifi, one is a laptop running XP and the other is a media centre which *was* running Windows 7. The laptop is connected to an N router using an ethernet cable to increase speed and because they are located next to each other, and the media center which is on another floor of the house uses a Wifi connection to the router.
The file transfers between the pc's used to run at about 70Mbits/sec which I was happy with. However due to problems with the media centre, I recently downgraded that pc to XP since I get much smoother HD video playback from XP MCE. But... since these changes the transfer speed has now halved to about 35 Mbits! Remember all the pc and network hardware is the same, the only change is to the operating system on the media centre pc.
At first I though maybe the different XP drivers for the network card on the media centre might be rubbish, so I changed the network card altogether, but the speed has remained the same. I have also stripped the networking configurations down to the minimum to reduce overheads, so have removed QOS and unnecessary file and print sharing etc. But none of this has worked. Am I missing something in the XP network configuration that might correct this problem, or is it simply the case that Windows 7 Wifi is just that much improved and faster than XP?
In one area, we have a server, and two computers that use that server extensively. Right now all the computers are on wi-fi.I know if I ran the computers through a switch they could share data more quickly. The problem I have is there is no way to get a cat connection to this area.If I got a range extender with switching ports built-in would it still speed this data up? Or would it be irrelevant because it still has to travel via wi-fi to the router and back?
Just got cable and new hardware and been running bandwidth tests. I know wired is always going to be faster than wireless but was wondering if there were things I can do to see where the bottleneck is.
I have cable internet with a sb6120 modem and the asus rt-n56u router. When I go wired, I get 40+mbs down and when I go wireless I'm getting approx 20mbs down. Dont get me wrong, this is more than adequate but was wondering why the huge difference. I'm not anywhere close to the theoretical max.
The rt-n56u is on firmware 188.8.131.52f which is current. My desktop uses the WMP600n and my laptop has the Intel 5100 AGN built into it - both have updated firmwares.
I'm currently switching from a certain internet provider to another and I'm forced to get another router. What I wanted to do is since the initial router has to be on the first floor, I'd like to have the second one on the top floor closer to my computer whereas they would share a dedicated connection between each other wirelessly so it would make my connection faster rather than just having my pc connect directly wirelessly to the initial router on the first floor. Is that possible?
I just bought a new WRT120N Router. It worked perfectly wired and wireless.But my old laptop burned, and the new one came with a Atheros AR5B93 Wireless Network Adapter, which is Draft-N compatible.The laptop connects to the router fine, but using only the G type. When I set the router to use only 802.11n, i get a message from Windows, like: "Windows was unable to connect to the network."because the N configuration is much faster than the old G.
I have two access points that I recently purchased from ebay. I updated them both to c1140-k9w7-mx.152-2.JB and I have been unsuccessful at getting either of them to connect at faster than 39MBps. After scouring google for answers I found several with the issue of not using the correct WPA2/AES configuration and that was me. However after changing the configuration, I am still unable to connect to either of the APs at faster than the 39Mbps. [code]
I've been experiencing a problem with my existing 3845's that may mean I may have to upgrade to a newer faster platform.Currently I have ISP links to 2 providers and run BGP. Each ISP link plugs into a separate 3845 NM-1GE fiber port. Both links are 100Mb ethernet handoff. There is an average of 50 - 60Mbps traversing each link during peak times. I am experiencing a large number of Input errors on both ISP links almost all of the errors are ignored. I opened a TAC case and I'm told that the 3845 can not handle this much traffic along with an ACL on the ISP interface and BGP. TAC engineer tells me that the RX ring of the interface is being overrun and tuning buffers will not make any difference. CPU util never goes above 25%.
I have a BEFCMU10 version 2.0 cable modem. My provider Insight Broadband has recently boosted their internet speeds. But I have found out that if my modem is not DOCSIS 2.0 compliant, I cannot get the faster speeds. How do I know if it is DOCSIS 1.1 or DOCSIS 2.0 compliant? I hope I don't have to replace the modem as it has given me absolutely no trouble since I have had it.
