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.

Slow Speed due to router


hi there,
I had a problem, my internet was working slow on wireless and when connected with wire it use to fly like anything.
What i found from reading alot if that often people think that there router is conduction some problem after few years of usage and the signals are not omitting correctly or something.
However I got a simple solution for you all I found that the internet was absolutely fine when connected with wire.
So after doing alot of other activities i found that the FIREWALL was turned on, on both the devices i.e. My ROUTER and my DSL MODEM.
So please keep in mind usually there is not problem with the Router or the DSL modem if you feel the internet is slow please check your firewall and simply turn one firewall on either it should be routers or dsl modem.
Well this helped me and now i get good speed.
If there is anything i can help you with please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you :)

Lock my d-link


Hi,
You can access the router through web interface and configure it.
The default username is admin and leave the the password field blank - Don't type anything - and Click Login). All you have to do is connect the router to the DSL Modem through LAN cable (or wirelessly) and make configure the router according to the needs and ISP. To secure the connection follow the following steps: -
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is 192.168.0.1 (written at the back of router) and lookup for the options to do the following: -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and leave the the password field blank - Don't type anything)
(The above step would prevent unauthorized access to your router)

Next step is to secure it:
1.On the left-hand side, under Setup, click "Wireless Settings" 2.Under "Security Options", select your desired encryption method (preferably WPA2-PSK)
3.Choose a Network Key - it can be anything, as long as it's 8-63 characters in length
4. Click Apply

Now your router and your connection would become secure and the user has to provide the network key to access the internet.

Am I getting high speed thru my actiontec gt704wg router


It depends on your DSL connection- technically anything above 56k is "high-speed internet"- if you are concerned about the speeds you are getting, contact Verizon tech support for further assistance- you could have an issue with your connection, and they would be the ones able to setup for a technician to come out/ have the maintenance office repair the connection

Internet is very slow, latency is very high


Not the best gaming router out there would not use it for battlenet or war 3 to boot. I would get linksys gaming router by linksys. But to solve you problem you need to run your computer in dmz gamming mode also try any new firmware out there and see if that helps if not part with the netgear and get a linksys gameing router you be glad you did.

Download speed slows when router is on line.


If the router is offline then your not downloading anything, most down loads start fast then fall to a level your pc can handle, aka your connection speed.
