Re: Internetrouter speed not equal

Although the router shouldn't allocate bandwidth like that, remember also that your broadband has limited bandwidth as well. What I mean is your DSL or cable modem only has a limited about of bandwidth coming in from the "outside world" to your router, which then distributes it internally. That said, that doesn't sound like much of a load, depending on what type of broadband you have. Have you checked for: a) FW updates for your router? b) driver updates for your network cards? Additionally, are you sayding from the statement "I used wires on this wireless router" that both systems were using hard-wired connections rather than wi-fi?

I have my router hooked up to my internet in my dorm at college, my signal is 100% but the speed varies from really slow to fast, how can i fix this

Do a quick speed test. There's a couple of websites out there but try Scroll to bottom of screen you should see a speed test icon.Pick the server closest to your physical address then click. This will give you a close approximation of what your speed is. Compare this number to what you pay for from your internet service provider. A computer speed is affected by numerous things. The RAM( memory) 4gb is optimum by today's standard. Second the amount of toolbars active on your web browser. Also clear temporary internet files regularly and browsing history on a regular basis, this greatly affects your speed. Last but not least, the websites that you access sometimes has it's own server issues. The internet is a two way communication, the party on the other end might have issues that affect your speed. Good luck

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.

I have a friend that has high speed internet, he is also deaf and has a video phone. His computer was working find with the internet. Yesterday Sorenson installed a d-link router and now he has video phone...

The router has to be configured to trans-receive data as well as VOIP. The data packets send & receive has to activated and that can be done from the PC itself by logging in to the router software and rectify rhe settings therein. If you face any problems or want to know the correct procedure then ask the ISP to provide the details regarding the settings. It will be best if the ISP' scustomer servive person guides you over the phone where simultaneously you are the PC to follow instructions and execute them till the router has been properly configured.........sodeep

Installing my wireless router

Did your friend have the security enabled on the router? The best thing to do is to set it back to factory defaults. There usally is a small hole in the back of the router - push (while plugged in and on) a paper clip or cake tester for circa 60 seconds.

THat should set it back to factory defaults. Have a hard wire to at least on active computer. Open a Internet Explorer - ignore the "page can not be found" message - type in the address bar - the user name and password SHOULD be (not really familiar with this modem brand) - username admin - password admin - or user name admin and password left blank.

Then you should have a working panel to work with.

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

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.
