Most likely the issue is not the router unless you get a faster connection when you plug into its ethernet ports or are at a closer proximity.
If it gets faster as you get closer you might get a better connection with a wireless N router (only if your laptop or other device supports N, as the connection will drop to what ever standard is lower).
Otherwise the best bet to upgrade your speed is to make sure you don't have other applications open that use network bandwidth or upgrade your service through your ISP.

Slow wireless connection


I think you can try to upgrade the firmware on the router.

Connect one compute to the router and download the firmware of the router.
Open the setup page and upgrade the firmware.

See How to upgrade firmware on the router

After upgrading the firmware reset the router and reconfigure it manually.
See if that helps you.

Range on the wifi


Need more info, but it could be a number of things. Many thing affect your wireless speed:

-Walls
-Distance
-Other wireless devices, or devices that emit radiation (Microwaves, cordless phones, baby monitors and etc.)

Other things could be:
-your computer is just plain slow
-there are too many people connected to the wireless at the same time
-your internet connection is slow either in general, or just temporarily

More advanced (and unlikely) reasons:
-your network adapter has been forced to operate at a slower speed
-your router is set to operate at a slower speed in its configurations

Slow connection speed


Blu Ray players, draw alot of interference into the wireless router. Try moving your router into a different place, or somewhere away from your Blu Ray player.

Makesure your computer is not too far away from your wireless router andyou have a good signal. By placing your mouse pointer over the wirelessconnection icon, located in the bottom right corner of your taskbar, you cancheck to see if your signal strength is good. Anything less than a good signalcan cause intermittent connections.
SOLUTION:You will need to relocate your wireless router closer to your computer.

When I have my router hooked directly to my computer it works fine. When I hook it up so the kids can use their laptops, the speed is very slow.


I think the first thing you should try to verify if the signal is strenght enough, because if it is not so the speed will be slow too.

Slow connection


Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)
