Question about TP-LINK Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Slow download speed

Have superfast 70Mbps+ BT infinity 2 fibre optic and all my laptops that have built in wirteless adaptors are connecting with download speeds in excess of 40 and 50Mbps which is great. I have an XP Desktop that I have used a 1560Mbps TP-LINK TL-WN725N and installed that using their CD but I am only getting 0.8Mbps download speed but 3Mbps upload speeds (I have 10 - 20Mbps upoloads on all other laptops). Is there a configuration I need to change for the download speed to be increased here on my XP desktop?? Thanks. Paul

SOURCE: D-Link DI-524 works with desktop, but laptop can't get signal

Try opening internet explorer and typing in http://192.168.0.1 in the address box
If this doesn't work try http://192.168.1.1

For the username and password put admin for username and leave the password blank

Now look for an option for the Wireless Settings and change the channel from usually channel 11 to channel 4 your laptop may now see it. Otherwise try another, channels available in the uk are 1-12, I think it's 1 to 11 in USA

SOURCE: cant access internet but can connect to wireless TP-link router

Your friend is able to go online using the same wireless network. that means the wireless network is working properly and there might be a problem with your computer .
You said that you can connect to the wireless network but you can not go online.
Check the IP address and the default gateway of the computer.
Try to ping the router and DNS server and check what happens.
Make sure that there is no static IP address on the computer.

SOURCE: i am using tp link

If you are paying for a downlink speed of 384 Kbps you should be getting at lease around 300. First bypass your router - connect your cable/DSL ethernet line directly from the modem to your PC. Go to http://www.auditmypc.com/internet-speed-test.asp run the speed test and see what your download speed is.

If it's less than 300 call your service provider & ask them to check out your line. If they say that you are getting 300 Kbps or more, you have a problem with the ethernet card in your PC. Replace it.

Of course, if your speed is OK when you bypass the router, you have a router problem. Contact the manufacturer or replace it.

Tip

Check your broadband speed and report it as a Slow/Not Spot


I have a maximum download (connection) speed of 3.5MB at my exchange which is a Local Loop Unbundling or LLU from which I live about 5km as the crow files.

My expected maximum will be only 70% of this at about 2.5MB due to signal to noise ratio loss on the BT line, dont bother trying to change your MTU or any TCP tweak settings you will probably cause more problems with the speed becoming lower maybe even cutting yourself off your own broadband connection

However most ISP use Local Loop Unbundling is the process by which third party networkoperators are able to install equipment in to BT telephone exchanges in order to provide their own services without having to touch BT's network. Only the copper pair from the exchange to the premises, which remains the property of BT, is used by the third party. Use SamKnowsBest to check what options you have at your local BT exchange


BT copper line MAX is only 8MB irrespective of the the LLU that you use this means your ISP hardware.

Optical Cables MAX is 20MB and only Virgin Media in the UK can use this transmission medium.


I used to get only 750kbps which is not even 1MB now I can get double that between about 1500kbps - 1800kbps which is still only 1.8MB depending upon the time of day.

Also make sure that your connection is not shared with another user they will steal your bandwidth ensure that if you are using wireless use a WEP or even better a WPA-PSK encryption. Close all instances of P2P or FTP uploading during the speed test.

http://www.speed.io/index_en.html

My Results as a comparision

http://speed.io/backend/result/24801225?pID=project1 750 Kbps
http://speed.io/backend/result/27957779?pID=project1 1500 Kbps
http://speed.io/backend/result/27959284?pID=project1 1800 Kbps

There is not a lot you can do other than report this slow speed to this website the more they can build up a picture of the bad or NOT SPOT areas then your ISP will have to act to ensure that you don't move your service to another provider.

http://www.broadband-notspot.org.uk/

NOTE:
If you have the same problem as me then unless you can get Virgin Media Cable that can supply upto 20MB download speeds then BT maximum 8MB speed will be your limit expect to get about 4MB using the BT copper wired pair and your ISP's own router if you live over 5 miles from the exchange.

How do I connect my Netgear DGND3700 router to Fibre internet (BT infinity)


Hi there
Your Netgear router will not connect to BT Infinity directly as the built-in modem is ADSL/ADSL2+ and Fibre requires a VDSL modem as in the HomeHub5 or the BT Openreach modem. Either of these can be used with your Netgear as a subsidiary router/access point. You may now be able to get a router with a VDSL modem built in but 3 years ago it was really only available from BT and BT did not support other makes.
Hope this clarifies matters though perhaps not too helpful

My printer is no longer working since I upgraded my network to BT Infinity


Did upgrading your network to BT Infinity involve installing any software on your computer? If so, there could be issues with the
BT Infinity software resetting (erasing) your printer configuration and/or installing a new printer driver or setting a new (invalid) printer as the default printer on the system (thus routing all your printouts to the spool area for a non-functional printer).
To check this:
START> Control Panel> Devices and Printers

Did BT (British Telecom) install FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet), with copper to the home, or did BT install FTTH (Fibre to the Home)?
