Good Signal,Good Mbps, Slow Internet Connection?

Ve 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 recently purchased a Netgear N600 Wireless router connected to my Comcast Motorola Surfboard SB5120 modem. I have a Comcast plan of 20 Mbps but through www.speedtest.net am consistently getting 8 Mbps...


I think its the modem that you need to upgrade. Comcast is already running on DOCSIS 3.0 system. The SB5120 modem that you have is a DOCSIS 2.0 modem. You may need to have your modem replaced with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem like the Motorola SB6120.

I want to buy a wireless network adapter USB. I do not have internet home, but there is a public connection that is a couple hundred feet away from my house that is public because it is a cafe. Can anyone...


A couple of hundred feet away may be too far for a good signal receiption.
You can increase your signal with an aerial.
You may need to go into the cafe or park yourself nexr door to the cafe.
Use Google to see what is available on the Internet.
Here are a few WEB sites for you to look at.

Low connection speed


Hello, the 100Mbps connection is to your router and not to the Internet. that means you can copy with a speed of 100Mbps(theoretically) between computers in YOUR network. You can test your Internet speed on www.speedtest.net, choose a nearby test point. If you paying for 2mbps and only getting 0.15 I suggest that you contact your Internet Provider because its very low if you paying for 2mbps.

I just installed d-link wbr-1310. I am getting 1/4 the speed using wireless. Are there any setting I change to resolve this.


Wireless connections are running on a slower speed by definition.

A wired connection with this router sets the maximum speed at 100 Mbps.

A wireless signal in a 802.11b network has a maximum speed of 11 Mbps, and a 802.11g network has a maximum speed of 54 Mbps.

These numbers are theoretical numbers and never achieved in reality. (like a Toyota Prius makes 60mpg...)

So depending on your wireless network adapter and how your setup physically looks like (distance to the router, interference with telephones, microwaves etc.) it is absolutely possible that you wireless speed is considerably slower than your wired connection.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

100+ mbps??!!


According to your user manual pg 2 & 23 (bottom) your device only operates at 54mbps and Pre-N works at 108mbps. The factory ranges can be misleading because their tests are under optimal conditions that we as users will never have.

Internet keeps defaulting to dialup connection vs. wireless


Go to Control panel > Internet Options> Connections tab >
check the "never dial a connection" bullet. Click ok.
Then you should be able to get online with that frustrating window.

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

Slow internet


I suspect that the DE-528 (discontinued card by the way) is only a 10 mbps card. Unless you are doing some heavy duty video the card would be fine. Otherwise replace it with a 100 mbps card.

Connection problem


if it's going offline, then it's losing the signal, or is recieving a low signal, it should be at 54mbps but when it gets below around 24mbps, it will disconnect and look for a stronger connection in your area, or disconnect from the net altogether.

 

Put your router in a higher and better line of sight to your adapter, walls and floors can block the signal and check that it's not your router that is losing the connection.
