Question about NetGear N300 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Netgear N300 is slowing down my internet connection

I have a 100 Mbps internet connection but when I run through my wireless router (Netgear N300) it says 54 Mbps. I ran a speed test without the router and I was hitting approx 47 Mbps download and 67 upload. When I tested again through the wireless router i got 9.25 Mbps download and 10.7 Mbps upload. What would cause that to happen? Can I fix it. I do have an older laptop (6 year)running Win XP. Thanks.

The router limits the data speed to the wireless reception.

802.11 G speed (maximum) is 54Mbps.

With Vista on the Laptop it should be just a matter of double clicking the router in the network settings, vista should automatically configure the connection.
This has happened to me before and this is what I did just to see if it worked, and it did flawlessly.

Only real trouble shooting I can suggest is power cycle the modem and router. If you have the Comcast Digital Voice modem make sure you push the reset button on the back as there is a battery in the unit and unplugging won't do anything.

SOURCE: My Computer is going toooooooo slow !!!!!!!!!!!!

theres a million things that can interfer with wireless...tin...cell phones, cordless phones and the like..but 11mbps is still really fast and chances are, your internet connection isnt even half that so your speed on the net shouldnt be effected...1mbps is usualy enough to load any website in seconds.
if your PC is slow, not jsut on the internet but in general (starting up, running apps) then its an issue with the pc and not the wireless.
but as a heads up, not trying to be mean, but netgear and belkin are cheap equipment.

I am using my netgear N300 router for wireless access only. But it is slow if multiple devices are using it?


The bandwith is shared between devices, making them slower. DHCP provides an IP and is dynamic, making it easy to add devices, A static IP means you have to assign and keep track of the IP's. Most people use DHCP.

Netgear n300 will not connect to internet


There should be a little red button that you can push. It is the reset button. Hold it down for around 10 seconds, and try again.

Are you trying to connect the laptops via wireless? Is that where you are seeing 75 mbps? I am assuming you are, and 75 mbps is really not how fast your internet connection is. Rather, that is how fast you are transferring data from your laptop to the wireless router and back. Generally speaking, this should be a way faster connection than your internet is running at. Chances are your internet connection speed is 10 to 20 mbps, which is good and fast.

It is easy to get the two confused, but basically a wireless connection of 75 mbps is an uber fast connection to your wireless router, and only if your actual internet connection was faster than that 75 mbps would you see any slowness due to that.

Wireless N routers are capable of delivering up to 100 mbps connection speeds, but again that is only from your device to the router. The router then goes to your modem and out through the internet. Chances are that connection is not 100 mbps because of interference, which can be walls, other wireless devices, etc.

One way to test your actual internet connection speed is to go to www.speedtest.net and click on one of the links on the map. This will tell you how many mbps you get to the internet.

What is the maximum speed


The speed of that router is 100 mbps (wired) and 54 mbps (wireless). If you have a 1 mbps line, that router is more than sufficient. Your speed will change simply because someone is using the internet connection. Downloading, uploading, surfing, chatting, listening to internet radio, etc. Make sure no one is on, then test it to see what speed you get. Go to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and select the server nearest to you. It is a very good speed tester.
Good Luck!
