Good Signal, Good Speed, Slow Internet?

Ive recently noticed that my internet is going slower and slower. It used to be very fast and all of a sudden it's very slow? Ive tried turning the router on and off and it returns my internet speed back to how it used to be but for only a few minutes. I want a fast connection again ;[.

My Wireless Adapter is a : Linksys WUSB54GSC
My Router is a : Verizon Actiontec M1424-WR

Ive also noticed that my connection starts at 54mbps speed and ''Very Good'' Signal then goes down to 11mbps and a ''Very Low'' Signal.
This problem is on this computer only. My laptop connection is just fine.

1. Try to use a different wireless adapter on all available USB ports, if the problem remains then
2. turn off your PC unplug the power cord from the power socket, short the two legs of the power cable then leave it for 5min, then plug it into the power socket again and turn on the PC.

if this didnt work then you have a hardware problem with the USB ports.

let me know how it works out.

I have a D-Link router (DSL-504T), and since I upgraded my internet from 1200kps to 8000kps, my internet runs very slow and keeps dropping out. I called my internet provider and they said the system is...


The type of documents displable on the internet contributes towards the speed capacity. Where for example word documents or email texts are displayable expediently than motion picture and videos. Consider the number of Medias displayable of the computer at a time to improve the internet speed. For example, display a site at a time and uninstalled unwanted program hinder on the computer background to make faster media displays. Usually computer that are slow to display programs are confused with internet pages that load slowly. A slow computer is due to insufficient memory to display caused by installing high capacity gaming software's or density chatting bundle software's. Once a computer gets video definitions gets over tasked, freezing is expertise directly impeding the internet networked capacity? It is also possible to have several devices sharing the computers networked internet connections. For example, the computer depending on the media cards magnitude can only allow an amount of bandwidth per time. Once connecting to an internet provider that provides high speed least makes benefit since the computers resources are least capable of attaining full capacity from signal provider. Consider evaluating the computes graphic capacities, also storage spaces available for hold sites downloaded from networks contribute towards faster speed.

My wireless adapter says i have a good connection, but when I go to play games online my signal strength changes so much it makes the game glitch


Whats going on is that your signal strength from the router is good but when playing a game the green bars that you see are not that of the signal strength but that of the internet Speed. Seems the signal is there but the internet speed is not I would restart modem and router see if this helps boost speed you can always check speeds at speedtest.net to be sure you are getting what you are paying for.

Can I combine two Combine Internet Connection?


In short, no. You can combine the two together, but it is not as simple as you might think. There are two methods that could be used to do this (that I can think of).

I know of no way to accomplish the first option in Windows. Linux can be configured with multiple default gateways, which can be weighted according to the speed of each gateway. When a user attempts to connect using this configuration, requests will be alternately sent out according to the speed of each network link. So, for example, suppose you have two links, and one is twice as fast as the other. Your first two outbound connection attempts would go out of the fast link and your third connection will go out of the slower link. This won't improve your download speeds when downloading a single file, but could improve performance when downloading multiple files (assuming that the connection request for each download went out through a different ISP). There are numerous caveats for this type of setup (for example, what happens if one link goes offline - there is probably no automatic "failover," so half of your connection attempts fail. Also, the router has to be smart about how it routes packets for related network sessions. If it routes half of the packets for one session out of one interface and the other half out the other, things will not work as expected.) The easiest way to implement this on Linux (that I know of) is with Shorewall. See the multi-ISP documentation at shorewall.net for more info (but that is probably way more complex than you would want to do).

The second option would require that the ISP supports some sort of link aggregation. With that type of setup, the ISP splits the data in half on their end and sends it to you over separate links. This option is not available to you because you have no control of your school's ISP. No residential ISP that I know of offers link aggregation.
