The variable switch had 5 connection points on it, i bridged the connection on the 2 outer points with insulated wire,pretty much to see what would happen, this worked,
as this will be a router fitted to a table i will at some point remove the wire and
attach a 5way rotary switch, used for guitar electrics and mount it
into a electrical switch casing,

Why am I losing internet speed when using router goes fro 60mps to 5-10 mps


how did you bypass the router ? what is connecting to the internet if you bypass the router ? question is the device connecting to the internet got a DHCP server and does the router have a DHCP server. What IP ranges are the two DHCP servers allocating.
You may need to switch off one of the DHCP servers in one of the two devices. Probably the DHCP servers are confusing each other .
Only my educated guess with the limited information on how your network devices interact. .

Freud ft2000 switch


You can find a part diagram and parts list on-line. Just enter the model #. The variable speed control module is no longer available. You can bypass the control, and connect the router directly. You will no longer be able to control the speed, or turn off the router. I used a variable 15A control box instead. It will function the same way.
You may want to just replace the router with a new up-to date router, I just purchased a 2 1/2HP Skil router kit tah has a 1/2 chuck, and both a plunger base a flat base, for $100 at a big box store.

Wiring


Not sure about the actual voltage, but the primary power board shows 94 V @ 2A. As this appears to be a variable speed drive, the voltage amplitude should vary depending on the speed potentiometer setting. The most likely culprit is the speed potentiometer. Poor design causes vibrations on the printed circuit board. This induces metal fatigue in the potentiometer terminations at the board. Eventually one or more terminals snap off. You could try removing the pot and connecting the wiper termination connection directly to the relative end for full speed? This is assuming you want it to run at full speed? Failing that you could try variable resistance settings and then replace the pot with a fixed resistance for the required final speed?

When the router is at slower speeds, I can stop the motor when pushing wood through a bit. when I back off, the motor starts up again. Is this normal or do I have a problem with the router.


Is it a variable speed? Routers only cut at high speed, wood anyway, if it is variable speed, They must think you will be cutting something soft, I don't know, But they are like a dentist's drill, when they slow down, they don't cut, Keep that thing on high and make some dust, it should not bog down, If it does, check the brushes, if it still does, it has lost it's power and is basically shot. get a new one. Hope this helps.

My freud ft 3000 will not run.i have power to the switch


First thing to check is that your brushes are touching. Remove the 4 screws holding the top cover on. You will see the two brush holders and brushes. Use a multimeter of the ohm setting to check the continuity through the brushes. Do not press on the brushes hard, just make contact with both brushes and the probes. If you get continuity it is not the brushes, it there is no continuity then inspect further to see if the brushes are worn. At this point if it is not the brushes the variable speed switch is more than likely the culprit. If you are getting power to the on/off switch and through the on/offswitch, check to see if you are getting power through the variable speed switch. To do this do not plug the cord in. Use the ohm meter to check continuity of the black wire to the wire coming out of the variable switch with the variable switch at the highest setting. As you turn the dial down the resistance will increase but should not be disrupted. If there is not continuity at all it is the variable speed switch. You can confirm this by bypassing all switches and connecting the power directly to the motor with alligator clips. Make sure you have the router in a vice when you do this though. It has a lot of torque and will jump off the bench if not secured. If you do not feel comfortable doing this please do not attempt it because you could seriously injure yourself or someone else. Any questions please post back and I will check back on this inquiry.

Router connection


Hiya, either the seetings on the router fiewall have changed, or the shock has damaged the circuit board somehow, the speed that the computer says its connected to is whats called LOCAL only, meaning you are connected at that speed to the router only, circuit boards do funny things when shocked, have you tried another router? Id put my money on the board being fried.
