This will not make your internet connection run any faster, at most, you have 10meg cable, maybe more if you pay a lot for it, and 54mb/s is more than enough bandwidth to handle that.

According to your user manual pg 2 & 23 (bottom) your device only operates at 54mbps and Pre-N works at 108mbps. The factory ranges can be misleading because their tests are under optimal conditions that we as users will never have.

I have a network with one desktop which is always on, one Sony Bravia TV and one laptop. All connected via D-Link powerlines (306/307 AV). My laptop connection is problematic. When the laptop restarts,...


Here is the link to the D-Link website: http://www.dlink.com/products/default.aspx?pid=DHP-307AV&tab=3

I would suggest downloading and updating the firmware for the device(s). Also, because it is expanding the wireless reach of your router via electrical wiring, any interference may inhibit the correct functioning of the system. I would suggest you try connecting to your wireless without the powerlines active to ensure it is not a faulty router or wireless card. If it still does not work with the powerlines deactivated, you may need to look into getting a new router or wireless adapter.

Hope this helps.

I am only getting 34-54 Mbps with my Linksys. I have a wireless adapter in my computer. It will go lower, but never than higher than 54 Mbps? I know i can get 100mbps because my Xbox does. Help me out!


Wireless Ethernet (802.11a or b or g) does not get the bandwidth you would get through a cabled connection. My guess is that you have an 802.11g network card in your computer and 54 Mbps is the top theoretical speed for that type of Wireless adapter. Cabled connections will give you the theoretical throughput of 100 Mbps. Also, since this Linksys device is not a Wireless access point but simply a switch, your computer doesn't actually connect to it. Most likely you are connecting to your cable or DSL modem. Most of these have a wireless radio built in.

WRT160N Wireless Router : i just bought a new laptop and a lynsis wrt160n......


The wired and wireless speed will always be different.
The maximum wired speed will be 100 Mbps. That means the wired connection is working properly.
Wireless connection speed will depend on the router and the wireless adapter on your computer.
If you are using B-Adapter then max speed will be 11 MBPS. IF it is G-Adapter then max speed will be 54 Mbps.
The N-adapter will give you more speed.
Check in the Device manager which adapter you are using on your wireless computer.
One more thing you can try changing the wireless channel on the router.
You will need to access the router settings page.
Update the drivers of your wireless adapter on the computer.
You have WRT160N router.
This router has issues with the Firmware.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the cable.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
Download the firmware of the router from the manufacturer's website.
enter the model number. select proper version number and download the firmware of the router.
Once you download the firmware, you will need to open the router set up and upgrade the firmware of the router.
After upgrading the firmware, it is recommended that you reset and reconfigure the router.

I just installed d-link wbr-1310. I am getting 1/4 the speed using wireless. Are there any setting I change to resolve this.


Wireless connections are running on a slower speed by definition.

A wired connection with this router sets the maximum speed at 100 Mbps.

A wireless signal in a 802.11b network has a maximum speed of 11 Mbps, and a 802.11g network has a maximum speed of 54 Mbps.

These numbers are theoretical numbers and never achieved in reality. (like a Toyota Prius makes 60mpg...)

So depending on your wireless network adapter and how your setup physically looks like (distance to the router, interference with telephones, microwaves etc.) it is absolutely possible that you wireless speed is considerably slower than your wired connection.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cannot connect to wirless with adapter on new computer


Although this model appears to support Windows Vista according to the manual for it (ftp://downloads.netgear.com/files/WG111T_UM_04Feb07.pdf) the 64 bit version is not mentioned and, therefore, probably not supported. I'd take the wireless adapter back and find one that supports Vista 64 for certain. Some do.

Running at 10 mbps


There's possibility that the network (router/modem/switch) you're trying to connect has limit to up to 10 Mbps only. Or it can be that the current LinkSpeed of the Ethernet adapter might be forced to 10 Mbps. Do the following to check this setting:
  1. Go to Control Panel> Network Connections.
  2. On Network Connections, look for Local Area Connection (for the D-Link adapter). Right click it then go to Properties.
  3. On Properties window, click Configure button.
  4. On the next window, go to Advanced tab.
  5. Look for Media Type, Connection Type, or LinkSpeed and Duplex Mode.
If the value is set to Auto Negotiation/ Auto/ AutoSense, try to force it to 100 Mbps.

Compaq laptop problem


OK, thanks. This is getting tiring eventhough staff here says they have this problem worked out, the wreakage was considerable. My ranking which is hard to come by at this level was decimated.

Did you get the Error Reporting service instructions on how to disable it?

Have you uninstalled Norton completely? Leave AVG in place until I get you the link to Avast.

I'll help you get ICS stopped. This is normally listed in the properties for Network, inside Control Panel. It would be listed as a service in the window. You select it and then choose uninstall.

Go ahead and rate this fixed so it doesn't get abused again. I only hope we don't run into this problem again this coming weekend.

Thanks.
WV

ps I'll be looking at what updates to apply next.

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.
