Extremely poor performance

My wireless card is experiencing high packet loss and very high 2k+ ms latency between the computer and router. this is one of 5 computers on this wireless network, and is the only one haveing these problems. the router is a d-link router so i don't think it's a brand compatibility issue.

Re: extremely poor performance

It could be because this card is probably set at 108mbps as default, but your router maybe a 54mbps stream, therefore if it's possible set the card at 54mbps to see if there is any change. applogies if this is not the case, but unless it's a signal or driver fault, it may be worth trying in a different pc.

Usable tcp and udp ports range from 1 to 65535. However you should not need to open any ports by default. Most routers include a stateful packet inspection (SPI) firewall. This is a fancy way of saying the router inspects the packet on it's way out to the internet when a computer on the inside of the firewall sends it out to the internet. The firewall will only allow connections from the internet on that TCP or UDP port if it returns from the original destination. For example, if you send a packet requesting the web page at, the firewall will only allow traffic back into your network on TCP port 80 from the web server at If a packet from any other IP address tries to piggyback into your network through tcp port 80, the firewall will block it.

The only reason to open ports on your firewall is to allow a server inside your network to receive unsolicited traffic e.g. a web server inside your network may need TCP port 80 and 443 (HTTP and HTTPS) opened if you want to be able to access it from the internet. A mail server may need port 25 and 110 open for SMTP/POP e-mail. However, most home users do not host their own mail or web servers.

My desktop won't connect wireless to the internet after installing a dlink dwl-510 wireless card, its says the installation was successful but when i try to connect to my network by puting the network key...

First make sure your modem is wireless, if it is not, you need to purchase a wireless router that connects to your modem. If that is all in place and you still have no connection, you may have to unplug modem and or wireless router for 30 second then replug back in, wait a few minutes, then try to get on line, if that does not work, go to the desktop, go to start, then to run command, punch in cmd, then enter, a black screen should appear, type in ping then a space then your ip address, like mine is if you don't know it call who you have for internet service, ask them for it, that said press enter, you should receive a message saying 4 packets sent 4 packets received 0 loss, this now means your connection is good, and you should be able to go online, also within windows is a network troubleshooter, you can go there: start:control panel: network settings.also one other big reason it could be also is that your modem is secure, and has a wep key, you need that to make a connection, the wep key is printed under your modem, write it down. Then go to internet explorer like you are going online, now look on the task bar all the way to the right, right click the little computer scrren go to open network connections, strat a new connection, follow the prompts, and when asked put your wep key in.

My latency is high when playing games

Network latency depends on the application you are using , while playing network games it can be high because of long distance of connectivity or long cable connections, secondly it depends on the switch or hub is using between 2 PCs or number of PCs ,
I propose a small solution to you "TraceRoute" which you can download by your own its a 30 days trial, It can analyze your network latency and performance degradation '

My wireless internet connection is getting interrupted every few minutes

Intermittent Connectivity:
NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).
This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the router.
Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:
  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.
Reducing Wireless Interference
If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:
your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors’), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router’s channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.
Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.

  • Placement of the router:
  • Manufacturers suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Manufacturers suggest changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router’s firmware.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Dell Wireless 2350 BroadBand Router

You may get some benefit from downloading and installing Netstumbler

This util will allow you to scan the channels and select a chanel with less devices on it. then change the broadcast channel in the wifi router. This may reduce interference in the connection.

Also cordless phones are notorious for interfering with wifi routers so put some distance between the router and the base if you can.

Another option is to get an external antenna for the router to boost signal strength

something like THIS or THIS and place up high on a shelf. Just check your router antenna is the sort that comes off... should unscrew. not all do unfortunately so be careful not to break yours!!

BTW - the router is not a bad unit but it also is not the best around either REVIEW

D-Link DWL-G510 Connected but no packets

According to the user guide for your motorola broadband modem it doesnot support wirless capability , ie it can only hook your computers to the interenet using the wire. refer the following link

What is required , is additional pair of hardware ie.
1. Wireless Router(eg linksys or netgear)
2.Router/broadband modem(given by the ISP)

Your connection would then be configured through the wireless router , that would give you wireless capability.

Refer to the following link , it gives you the a step by step guide to setting up the wireless connection .

Best of luck .....


PS Do let me know if you need more assitance.

Disconnects while working.

it may be as simple as the wireless connection signal strength, as doors, solid walls or any solid object that is in it's line will cause the signal to be very low, and at that point it will disconect from the internet as it is unable to send packets of information to your wireless card from the router. You can try your router in another telephone point that is nearer the pc to see if the connection drops, or use a different channel number which can be changed in the routers settings and the wireless cards properties as interference from other electrical appliances on the MHZ level can cause signal loss. Laptops tend to suffer less with the signal loss because they normally have a signal booster in the screen of the laptop within the wireless receiver ariel.
