Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Internet speed with wireless connection to my router is almost half as compared to when i connect to my router using a cable.

This is regarding the previous problem which i think you misunderstood. I dont get equal speeds to the internet when I connect using a wireless connection to the router and when i directly connect to the router using a cable. There is some problem with the wireless connection which gives half the speed when compared to cable connection. Do i have to do any special settings on the router for wireless connection to get equal speed to the connection I get when connected through cable?

Re: Internet speed with wireless connection to my router...

As far as i know the coonection speed on internet should be the same, the speed at which you connect to the router wirelessly would be half the speed ,hence 54 mbps as apposed to 100 mbps via cable, when downloading. I assume you have done a speed test at to give you your modem connection speed, although your wireless connection to your pc; will stream the connection at half that of cable.

Come across a really annoying problem within our household. We're with TalkTalk for internet, i'm on a PC connected via WiFi through a dongle on the network. There's also a TV that is causing the...

Ok. (I don't know how much help I can offer since I'm in USA and you're in UK). 1) From what little I was able to look up, TalkTalk Internet is really small and has a lot of issues regarding on what it delivers to it's customers. 2) The HUAWEI HG533 Router... (from your description of the symptoms with your TV), seems functioning ok, just that the Bandwidth (Internet speed of your ISP-TalkTalk) is too slow to keep up with everything you want to do once you add the Video for the TV. IF you use the Internet cable from your router to the TV, you should have a Faster connection for internet reception (compared to WiFi. Minimum of N-Band on WiFi should suffice for 1 TV and 1 Computer. 5 Devices or more, I recommend a Better Router and Cable your Devices that need the Fastest connection for response, IE. 1-2 computers, TV or Blu-Ray device that provides content to your TV). Best advice - Inquire your Internet Provider about your situation, Possibly change ISP's, Make sure your Router can handle the Usage on WiFi and Cable connect that you require. I have been using a D-Link DIR-655 N-Band Gaming Router (broadcasts WiFI @ 65Mbps/sec, 4 cable connect Ports with 1Gbps speed) for several years now. I've got 2 puters and a Blu-Ray device cable connected, we WiFi our 3Cell phones, a Sony WII and 2 other puters for our kids. We pay a about $25 more a month for faster Internet speed, all runs rather well (Time Warner Cable Turbo, USA, total Internet cost is $65 a month, we don't subscribe to any tv or land-line phone, since we use cell phones).

How to increase zhone 1518 internet speed

Many things/variables determine Internet Speed, some you can control, some not so much. Contact your ISP and have them verify the signal, have a ISP tech come out and analyze the signal. The issue may be outside equipment or the Internet site itself. No one thing will increase speed. Upgrade to a New N or AC Wireless Access point, but remember you must update ALL computers to N or AC to benefit fro the Wireless device upgrade. Check ALL cables and connections, reseat connections. Your Device is a 802.11 G, what are you connecting? Are the Computers G as well? You can connect via a Ethernet cable, that's the fastest/easiest/cheapest way to increase speed.

Globe symbol won't turn green.

I was banging my head for 2 days with about 35 different configurations and finally tried the following and it worked just fine. Also, tried connecting 3 computers and they all connected with "NO" issues. Even connected wireless with "NO" issues. Now I am at 20mb download speed...J compared to AT&T 1.5mb download speed.

This is my DLINK model -> (DIR-601 Wireless N 150 Home Router Wireless router)

1. Reset your Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem by unplugging it for 5 minutes.

2. Then reset your DLINK Router to the manufactures default settings. Then Unplug DLINK Router for 1 minute then plug it back in (Just plug your cat5 cable into port 1 and connect it to your computer) there should not be anything else plugged into the DLINK Router at the time you make the changes. Just 1 computer can be connected.

3. Went into the DLINK configuration and changed the PPPOE setting that I was using for my AT&T Modem to Dynamic IP (DHCP). Once you make the changes save them and then unplug your DLINK Router it's off.

4. Turn on Comcast Surfboard Cable Modem and wait until all lights are on. Now plug in a cat5 cable from the Surfboard Comcast modem (NOT A CROSSOVER CABLE LIKE THE CD INDICATES) to the INTERNET port of your DLINK Router. Now turn on your DLINK router.

5. Then turn on your computers or restart them and it will pick up IP Addresses from your DLINK Router

Trying to Install a wireless router WRT54GS; ISP Cox Cable

I don't know what type of internet connection you have. If you have cable internet connection, you can copy the mac address of your modem to your router - that's what you call, cloning. If you have DSL connection, you can just obtain an IP Address from the modem to the router. If it's an Internet connection that is requires authentication, you can use the PPPoE type of connection. You can configure your router to any of the mentioned configuration above.

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.

Wireless router

The answer to both your questions is yes. The laptop and the 98 does not care what router they are pluged into, the settings on them will not be affected. Only if you change the adaptors on the the 98 or your XP's will the 98 or XP need any adjustment. (unless you change the WEP key, then it is just a matter of putting the new WEP key in the xp and 98 machines.)

Split speeds on modem

I have never seen a router split speed evenly for the number of computers plugged in. Typically all bandwidth is available to any one computer using the service and it becomes proportianlly less as others start using it. Just because four computers are plugged in doesn't mean each will get 1/4th the total speed, it all depends on what they are doing. Perhaps you have a problem with your wireless connection itself since your first speedtest was using a cabled ethernet connection. Check to make sure you have a strong signal and that windows is reporting a good speed (11mbps, 54mbps, etc). If the signal is real low then speed can drop to below 1mbps. Finally, are you conducting the exact same test each time (like A file download from a site isn't the best test of speed since it can vary drastically as others users hit the site.

In my new router getting less speed in wireless connection than when connected with a cable.

The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet. These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps. If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps. Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.
