Hi,

This can be very subjective as broadband speed test is subject to line noise, distance and many other factors.
I am using 100Mbps broadband, but my speed test is only 51Mbps.

I am using Draft-N router, yet, it does not give me much performance.

Checks with the provider will find no problem. instead the problem will lie with the broadband speed being shared with other users within the specific area.

Hope this web link can clarify your doubts better.

Thank you for rating us.

Yes that is a problem with your router, if there's any firmware update for that router it will make the connection much faster....

Sky Broadband Wireless ADSL Sagem Router Errors with Screendumps


Generally speaking if your @ light on the front of your router is not lit then your telephone line is not enabled for ADSL however you will still be able to goto 192.168.0.1 and check this is an example of the screen display

ADSL LINE FAILURE
LINE NOT
PHYSICALLY
CONNECTED

ERROR : Return Code 100


This also can happen if the twisted pair copper wire that is used to send the signal into your router has been disconnected or there is a short outside your house.

NOTE: That even if BT reconnect and complete a silent line test on your telephone line from your house from the Master Test socket behind your faceplate this doesn't mean that you will have a Broadband Signal from your ISP.

Under normal operation you should see the following screen click show statistics, this line is connected at 3.3MB

Check your broadband speed and report it as a Slow/Not Spot


I have a maximum download (connection) speed of 3.5MB at my exchange which is a Local Loop Unbundling or LLU from which I live about 5km as the crow files.

My expected maximum will be only 70% of this at about 2.5MB due to signal to noise ratio loss on the BT line, dont bother trying to change your MTU or any TCP tweak settings you will probably cause more problems with the speed becoming lower maybe even cutting yourself off your own broadband connection

However most ISP use Local Loop Unbundling is the process by which third party networkoperators are able to install equipment in to BT telephone exchanges in order to provide their own services without having to touch BT's network. Only the copper pair from the exchange to the premises, which remains the property of BT, is used by the third party. Use SamKnowsBest to check what options you have at your local BT exchange


BT copper line MAX is only 8MB irrespective of the the LLU that you use this means your ISP hardware.

Optical Cables MAX is 20MB and only Virgin Media in the UK can use this transmission medium.


I used to get only 750kbps which is not even 1MB now I can get double that between about 1500kbps - 1800kbps which is still only 1.8MB depending upon the time of day.

Also make sure that your connection is not shared with another user they will steal your bandwidth ensure that if you are using wireless use a WEP or even better a WPA-PSK encryption. Close all instances of P2P or FTP uploading during the speed test.

My Results as a comparision

http://speed.io/backend/result/24801225?pID=project1 750 Kbps
http://speed.io/backend/result/27957779?pID=project1 1500 Kbps
http://speed.io/backend/result/27959284?pID=project1 1800 Kbps

There is not a lot you can do other than report this slow speed to this website the more they can build up a picture of the bad or NOT SPOT areas then your ISP will have to act to ensure that you don't move your service to another provider.

http://www.broadband-notspot.org.uk/

NOTE:
If you have the same problem as me then unless you can get Virgin Media Cable that can supply upto 20MB download speeds then BT maximum 8MB speed will be your limit expect to get about 4MB using the BT copper wired pair and your ISP's own router if you live over 5 miles from the exchange.

How to configure TP-link TL-wr340g on tata broadband


Hello,

If you don't have any internet access, you can reset the router by unplugging it from power and then plug it back in. Do the same for your ADSL or cable ISP modem which you have connected on your TP-Link router.
RESET FIRST YOUR ADSL MODEM and then your router.

Other solution might be to do ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew on your command line window from your computer.

You can find your wifi router's user manual (PDF) on this link:
http://www.tp-link.com/resources/software/200943083466.pdf

Please mark as solution if this helped you at all.

Thanks.

I have an ADSL D-Link modem (DSL-300G)that works fine. I hooked a D Link wired router, EBR-2310 and can't get to the internet. It use to work until one day recently the kid moved wires arround because no...


First: Connect your computer directly to the ADSL modem. It has an Ethernet port.
If you can't get to the Internet while your computer is connected directly to the modem, then ytour router never will either. Call ISP if you can't connect to the Internet when directly conencted to the modem.
Next: Check your router wires again, The modem must be connected to the "special" port on the router. Look at the router. There is one port separated from the rest. Connect the modem to that port. Conenct to the Internet.
Still no Internet?
Reset your router by pushing a stylus (straightened-out paperclip) into the reset "hole" on the router (with router powered ON).
Push & hold for 30 seconds or until the lights do their reset dance. Connect to the INternet.

Slow internet


90kbps is a little slow. You should be getting closer to 175-200kbps. You have to remember also that the ISP only states that the speeds are "up to 1.5mbps", so that could mean that you get less than that.

I would try and run a speed test. Go to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and run a speed test. If you're getting an optimal connection you should get results for download at 1300+ kbps. If it's much less than this I would restart your networking equipment one time and test again. If there is no change I would contact ATT and have them test the lines.

Hope this helps.

You will have to set the MTU to 1500, that speed is not enough, if you are getting only 416Kbps downstream, then it's not right, either the router is at fault or your isp, understandably you are on 8mbits but you need to do a line speed check at BT web site and see what you should be getting in theory, as you may be far away from the exchange. The MTU of 1500 may not up it to what is should be, i think you need to check your line filters and get a line check done as 416 mbps is unacceptable.

In my new router getting less speed in wireless connection than when connected with a cable.


The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet. These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps. If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps. Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.
