Belkin Pre-N Wifi - Speed problem

Hi, I have problem with the Pre-N router and PC-Card. When using 2 connected computers, I don't get speeds above 15-20 MBit/s even though the connection shows up as 108 Mbps in the network connections dialog in XP. This is when the computers are placed side to side (optimal distance). Another question: Is there USB equipment for the Pre-N networks? Is Belkin the only manufacturer? cant run my two laptops off this router

Hi,

When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.

Frequent loss of internet connection


CONTINUAL DISCONNECTION OF WIRELESS CONNECTION
There are a few things that can cause you to lose wireless connection with your wireless router. 1. Weak signal strength, check the signal strength on your wireless card. If it is weak move the wireless router away from brick or concrete walls and if possible locate the wireless router higher up. 2. Have you secured your wireless router from people near your from unauthorized access? i.e. change the default password, setup encryption use WPA2 or WPA, change the default SSID, and turn off SSID broadcast, and for added protection, enable MAC address filtering which allows only the MAC address/es of your wireless card/s to connect to your wireless router. 3. You could be getting interference from electrical sources such as air conditioners, arc welders, washing machines etc. If so, the power supply to the wireless routers and computers etc should be connected to a surge protection power board, better still connect your computer equipment to an UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply). 4. Check the channels of the wireless routers and access points in your area and change the broadcast channel on your wireless router to an unused channel or one that is currently used but has the weakest signal strength. This will minimize interference with your wireless router from other wireless routers and access points in your area.

Hi I have a belkin F5D8233-4v3 router but the speed isn't what it should be. I have a 100/10 Mbit connection but when I have my computer connected through the router with a cable all the speed tests I try...


The speed of the wireless connection can be affected by -
1. The signal strength
2. Clashes with other wireless routers in your area broadcasting on the same channel
3. Electrical interference with the wireless signal
4. WEP & WPA Encryption of the wireless signal to prevent unauthorized access does slow the data transfer a bit.
That is why you are getting better performance using the LAN cable.

Belkin wireless n route only puts out 54mbps


The reasons you only get 54mbps could be: one, your networked PCs don't support N-mode and broadcast in G-mode, so that the router falls back to 54mbps.

Two, the signal strength is too low or the radio noise level is too high to allow N-mode operation at full speed.

So, after checking with the manuals and vendor brochures, you should try connecting the router with a single PC close by - say, ten feet in the same room - and check connection speed. If you can connect at 108 or 125 depending on which N mode you have (N, N+, N1...), the problem is likely to be distance, walls or noisy equipment.

If you still can't connect, double-check the configuration of both router and PC (wifi board "Advanced Properties" in Hardware Management) to check whether N mode is enabled at BOTH ends, especially "Wireless Mode" in the PC.

If it still doesn't work, I'd test it with a Belkin N USB key, for example, just to check that when router and client vendors say, "802.11N", they do indeed refer to the same thing. That's not so cut and dried a thing as one would expect. The N-mode standard was not completely defined from the start, so that many vendors jumped the gun and implemented their own "N-modes" which are often NOT compatible with each other. If you had a US Robotics router and a Yuwasa (and outdated SparkLANs, IIRC) wifi board, you'd discover that you could only attain 11 mbps - and if the USR router was set for "G only" or "G and N" instead of "B, G and N", you would get no connection at all.

Installed belkin router for my lap top - doesnt work


Hi,

Thanks for using Fixya!

You have the right gizmo there. You just need to set it up correctly. If you are in the US contact belkin @ 1 800 223 5546.

You need to know your ISP type first before trying to contact them. Know if you have a PPPoE (High speed DSL with password) Dynamic IP internet (no user name or password required to connect to the internet, usually used by cable internet providers)

After you find the right information just contact belkin and they will assist you with the proper router usage.

Have a great day.

If i have a belkin pre-n router (# F5D8230-4) will i be able to connect with a "G" 2.0 adapter or should i get a "N" adapter. When I told the guys at my local retail, they did not know what a "pre-n"...


Because the routers are pre-N they will support B-N because n isnt standard and is still a little touchy. you will be fine. but the downside, you arent getting the true N speed because your comp is running G, if you could elaborate on your computer a bit more im sure we could find an N internal card to replace the G stock. let us know

Belkin Wireless connection speed at 11mpbs. Why not 54mpbs?


this is from the d-link support page:
"Question :Why can't I get the advertised speed and performance when in Ad-Hoc mode? 
  
Answer : 

This FAQ applies to 802.11b, 802.11g, and Super G™products.

D-Link wireless products follow the IEEE 802.11 standards. The802.11b and 802.11g standards specify that Ad-Hoc mode only needsto support up to 11Mbps. For best results, use an access point orwireless router and set your adapters to Infrastructure (station)mode."

Belkin n wireless usb speed problem


Hi,

For your connection to reach 300 MBps, not only must your Belkin WiFi USB adapter be an N, so must your Access Point/Router also be N capable.  Additionally, your Internet/DSL connection would also be a limiting factor on your Internet Connection speed.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
