Question about Linksys Wireless-N WRT150N Router

Dowmload and upload speed problems with my router

I have the Lynksys Wireless -N WRT150N and I am having trouble with the download and upload speeds on my router. I just did a DSL Reports speed test in my area (NYC) .Roadrunnner is my DSL provider and I got a speed of 29kb/s of upload and a 35 kb/s download speed . My router is out of warranty and Lynksys will only help if you pay them ...Their support is so shoddy that I refused. Can anyone help me by detailing the steps to do to optomize the router? I think I need to adjust the bandwith or something....Please , if anyone could help it would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    that sounds really terrible!

    Please go to speakeasy, do another speed test on a server close to you (probably NY) and post the results here again.

    http://speakeasy.net/speedtest/

    Ideally you do the test twice:
    1. through your router
    2. your PC directly connected to your DSL modem (without the router)

    Post both results!

    I will check back and then we go from there.

Slow upload


Usually uploading speed will be slow in any type of connection.It is default.Uploading speed will be 1/4 fourth of downloading speed.So uploading speed won't increase more than that.If you fee your internet uploading speed is very slow,it is because of internet traffic.Try using internet in non traffic time.Also try to avoid many downloads at same.You can use latest browser for browsing.To check internet speed visit the site Scanmyspeed.com

There are many,many factors beyond your control, Where you are downloading from, time, servers,traffic, etc., etc., etc. I would not get to hung up on "check my internet speed" software.

Slow upload speed


It is usual that the internet speed differs when connected to a modem and a router. You have many possibilities to get signal affected while connected through a router.
Anyway you can try with these basic steps to get a better connection through router,
1.) Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.
Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.ScanMySpeed.com before and after performing these steps.

The internet speed drops more than 50% when I conect to the router


Do a firmware upgrade on your router to improve the speed and also adjust the MTU size on the router settings to 1400 that will also help in speeding up the connection using the router........
