To correctly check James, I would connect a computer directly to the modem, and test at speedtest.net. If that DL speed is fine, then I would connect the router, and plug a computer directly into the router and test again. If that number is fine, then you can narrow your issue down to WiFi speed only. All of the ports on the back of that router should be at least 100 Mbps ports. So that should not be the bottleneck. If your speed directly attached to the modem is slower than you expected, I would contact your carrier.
Are you measuring while using an Ethernet cable between your computer and your router, or while using your "wireless" adapter to wirelessly connect to the router?
Re-cable your system, to temporarily connect your computer directly to the cable-modem, bypassing the router, and then measure the speed. If it still is "low", then telephone your ISP, and get them to trouble-shoot.
Otherwise, the router is capable of receiving at up to 100Mbit/second, and its "wired" ports are capable of sending to your computer at up to 100Mbit/second.
Does your computer have a "Wireless-G" (54Mbits/second) or a "Wireless-N" (more than 108Mbits/second) network-adapter?
As of me, there is nothing
can be named , THE BEST , but i have been using http://www.ip-details.com/
for the past 3 months to check my system speed, it was accurate and
user friendly to check the speed of our internet
First, are you connected via Ethernet cable or are you linking via Wi-Fi? If Wi-Fi the speed is alway slower (up to 54 Mps) If connected by Ethernet, your connection speed should read 100 Mbps. Once you have determined the connection mode and speed.unplug the wireless router and connect the computer directly to the modem. Now test the speed and see if the speed lag is still ther. If not, you have a routing /networking issue but, it it is still the same speed, it could very well be heavy traffic ( a lot of people drawing from the same local area signal., usually at specific times of the day).
It's the modem, not the wireless router that is the problem.
The modem must have the proper account name & password for it to work.
Connect a computer directly into the modem (without router). The modem has an Ethernet connector. If you can't get Internet by connecting a computer directly to the modem, then you will never get the router to work.
Contact your ISP. They may not give you the account name / password, but instead do a service call to your location.
First you need to make sure that your modem alone is working right. you can check this by connecting your computer directly to the modem and testing for the internet connectivity.
Then power off everything. connect the ether net cable from the modem to the router. connect both the power cables (modem and router). power the modem first, wait for a minute and then power the router. this should work
As far as i know the coonection speed on internet should be the same, the speed at which you connect to the router wirelessly would be half the speed ,hence 54 mbps as apposed to 100 mbps via cable, when downloading.
I assume you have done a speed test at http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html to give you your modem connection speed, although your wireless connection to your pc; will stream the connection at half that of cable.
