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?
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact

Please upgrade the firmware of the router. You may refer to the link below: http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/linksys
Enter the model number, hardware version and download and save the latest firmware of your router. Open the router page by typing 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the web browser and enter the username and password(if any set by you), else leave the username blank and type admin in password. Click Administration (in the router page) and then click Firmware.Click browse and select the firmware file that you have saved on your desktop and click upgrade. Once the upgrade is over turn off the router for 30 seconds and restart it.
Do a quick speed test. There's a couple of websites out there but try www.speakeasy.net. 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

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
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 http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html to give you your modem connection speed, although your wireless connection to your pc; will stream the connection at half that of cable.
