Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router
Hi, I was downloading stuff today at 30kbs/second, and i was the only active person on my router then, my friend downstairs started downloading and my speed dropped to 2kbs/sec, i went downstairs and took a look at his connection...28kbs/sec, aint routers supposed to distribute equal amounts of transfer speed? -no, i am not far away from the source of the download -we are using the same networks card -i dont have viruses -no other downloads were on -i unplugged him, my speed went back to normal -and i used wires on this wireless router any advise how to fix it? thanks a lot.
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?
