Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

3 Answers

Slow internet speeds

I ran a speed test from the supplier, and was averaging between 11.7 and 19.2 MBS, through hard wire. Via wireless, I am between 3.1 and 3.9. What can I do?

Sometimes if you open device manager and expand network adapters, then right-click on the wireless adapter and click properties, on the advanced tab, every manufacturer writes their drivers differently, but some have a setting that is something like compatibility and the choices are faster and more compatible (you have to choose one or the other). Only change one setting at a time, write down what you change, what it started at, and where you set it, then close the property window and test. If it makes it worse, set it back before trying another setting.

The difference is probably due to the signal quality. The 802.11g has provisions for reducing the transmission speed when the signal quality is lower. This is called Dynamic Rate Scaling and may reduce the speed from 54 to 48, 36, 24,12, 9, 6 Mbps. The same is true for 802.11b WI-Fi but the speeds drop from 11 to 5.5, 2 and 1 mbps.

If you have an 802.11b device on your network the 802.11g devices will drop their speeds to the 802.11b speeds. This sucks and has been fixed in 802.11n.

Distance, metal obstructions etc all affect signal quality. You can purchase antennas to improve things but that is beyond the scope of your question.

How are you connecting to the internet?
1. Wireless
2. Wired
This can have an effect on the speed. A wired connection is not subsceptable to any interference and wont slow down from it.
A wireless connection can be slow because of the router, other things that broadcast radio signals, other things that broadcast non radio signals (like flourescent lights.)
How are you testing the speed? Unless you go to a website that has a speed test program or you are running a speed test application, there is no way to know for certain that your speed is what you believe it is. Your speed can also change due to the amount of people on the internet and other things like equipment failure outside your house.

Powerline data transition speed can be effected by many things. Distance, equipment producing electrical noise on the power lines, being on separate circuits, or even running though power filters or surge protectors can cause slow or failed connection.

Make sure the adapters are connected directly into the wall, remove any electrically noisy equipment on the circuit between the adapters, and try to make sure the adapters are on the same electrical circuit. These things should help.

The hard disk has only 1.8 MBs read/write average


If it had a bad virus i would start fresh, format the hard drive, and even better low level format it to make sure its completely clean and then start over and see if that helps. If it was fine before the virus and suddenly its slow now i doubt something else just suddenly failed. Most likely the hard drive is still pretty messed up from the virus.

Internet extremely slow on one network, fine on the other


Not knowing if this relates directly as i am not from Australia but have you checked with the ISP.

The phone line providing the internet access may be damaged in some way or require calibration to reduce line noise (which can cause slow speeds).

Alternatively, have you got a usage limit that you may have reached. ISPs have the ability to throttle back your connection speed.

Thanks

Slow speed tests


Your HP G60 has an 802.11 b/g card. 802.11g has a maximum rated speed of 54 mbps, like the router. You never get the actual "rated" speed with wireless cards, this would occur only with maximum signal strength, no network protocol overhead, no security, etc. if you were to replace your current card in the Satellite with an 802.11 b/g card, you would get comparable results.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
