Asus WL-500g losing speed

Hi, I have problem with this router, Provided speed should be 8Mbps, but with router, day-to-day, I can connect just by 1Mbps (according to web speedtests). Now i can't fix it. I tried to change cable, but no effect. I used my old router, to gather if it isn't caused by modem, it was ok.This problem is visible on all computers using wired even wireles connection. I found similar questions out on few webs, by noone could respond or add possible solution. Now I'm desperate Thanks for Your advice

Maybe there some incompatibilities in your other router. or the kind of cable you are using. or it is incompatible with your other devices.

I do not want wireless router to assign ip addresses for lan

not sure if you are doing it right
your wireless router has 2 "sides" one is it's upload, it's wan network and that is where you should set DHCP - so that the router itself gets an ip from your LAN
other side is behind your wireless router and there DHCP should also be off. it would be best if you could put your router in bridged mode - just to extend your network over WIFI

I have asus router WL 500 g premium , when i conect my router to the power , all led form lan it open bu no lan it is on router . router not conect , pls help me .

Have you tried to reset the router? Most routers have a reset button in the back of the router (where the LAN ports are located) that you can hold in for ~30 seconds to reset the router to factory defaults which could also resolve the issue you're having as well. Although if you have a computer connected using a patch cable (CAT5) to a computer that is turned on and your not getting a link indicator light on your router then try another port to see if the led is visible then, if not try another patch cable or try connecting it to another machine.

Yes you can get "into" your router via a broswser by typing in it's IP, usually enter logon & password , if not set, usually admin, admin, (or blank). You should check your default settings though.

Then here you can manipulate ya router.

Can not find mac for router or how to spoof pc mac to router so my ips will let me connect

Usually the MAC is on a sticker somewhere on the router, but your ISP should also be able to detect it.

Exactly ASUS WL-500g, no internet connection

My advice and personal experiences with both wired and wireless connectivity, is if you wish to share files and internet connection, purchase a combined Modem/Router and not a seperate router to work along side your original modem. Your modem will send your router an ip address in turn your pc is sent one from your router and can get complicated; keep it simple! These are much easier to set up and control as one unit and if there are ever any connection problems you will know it's either a setting or a modem/router problem and not have to wonder ; is it the modem?; Router? settings? etc. As there are frequent loss of connections both internet and LAN it makes sense have one peice of equipment to maintain.
