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?

    Depending on the router you are using, a FW upgrade can make quite a difference for stability, etc on the connections. Some companies, like Linksys, release tons of FW upgrades for their routers.

How to unblock my facebook


When you are blocked by someone on Facebook, there are few options to unblock yourself. In fact, unless the person unblocks you on their own, you can't become unblocked on your own.
There is one thing that you can do, that requires setting up a new Facebook account.
You can use your same name, but you must sign up with a different email address.
Once the new account is set up, you can proceed to contact the person who blocked you.
Keep in mind that the person may see your online attempts to contact her as harassment and may block your second account as well.

Go to facebook.com and fill in the "Sign Up" section.
Enter an alternative email address that isn't attached to an existing Facebook account in the "Your Email" and "Re-enter Email" fields.
Click the "Sign Up" button once.
Enter the Captcha security code in the text box and click the "Sign Up" button a second time.

Complete the Facebook account registration and find friends, add profile information and upload a profile picture.
These items are optional and you may add them at a later time.
Click the "Save & Continue" button to finish.
Go to your alternative email account and retrieve the Facebook confirmation message.
You will need to click a link in that email before your new Facebook account becomes active. Once the account is active, you can contact the person who blocked your other account.

My connection speed is very low its at 1.07mb/s when its suppose to be higher then 4. Is there anything i can do


Hi Friend,

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.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

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 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

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

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 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.
