Desktop has very poor/slow connection through wireless router

Hello. I have a problem that I am really confused by. A few days ago we hooked up two computers through a wireless router. one is a wireless mac, and the main computer is a desktop, hooked up to the router with an ethernet cable. Both comptuers worked great for a few days, but now, the desktop has a very limited/slow connection to the internet. I can barely connect, but the wireless mac works great still. according to the router and the modem lights, all connections are good. what is wrong? how can I fix tis

This sounds like a spyware/virus problem. Try running the computer in safe mode(With networking) and see if it's any faster. You should also run your Anti-spyware,AV apps to check for problems.

Incredibly slow wireless connection when DSL connection is fine.

anytime you transmit wireless and connect wireless you loose speed. a lot of routers have a buffer in them to regain the transmision speeds. the antennae needs to be at a 45 degree angle as well for best transmission and tight. there maybe static in the lines called ingress. a bad connector or a radio shack splitter will kill off hsi. make sure your splitter is over 1000 mhz. the 900mhz are garbage. your netgear may also be the problem, and may be subject to warranty replacement.. it is very common. i install netgear wireless daily and i have seen brand new out of the box fail. also like my wife, she forgets to remove the torrent files from the vuze downloader and ends up seeding 20 albums which slows us down bigtime.

The wired setup doesn't work, but wireless does.

Slow connection could result due to 1. Distance from the Router to the computer 2. Lot of interference ( Cordless Phones / Thick metal in between ) 3. Not in line of sight 4. Old firmware ( not the latest one )
Hope this helps
Thanks Ranjit

Hello fieldon68, & to all the rest with the same problem.

There are many things that could be wrong, but intermittant discounnects sounds very much like a interverance from another wireless device. (ie phone, cell, etc)

To try to address this issue, follow the steps below:
Note : The steps below are applicable only for Belkin routers.
  1. Open an Internet Explorer window on your computer and type in in the address bar. This will take you to the Belkin router's web based configuration page. If you are not able to open the page click here.
  2. You will get a login page. Leave the password blank. Click Submit ( unless you created a password, then enter that).
  3. On the left side of the page, click Channel and SSID below Wireless .
  4. The wireless channel on the Belkin router is set to Auto by defualt. Change the wireless to a static channel. Click Apply Changes .
  5. Click Logout in the top right hand corner.
Note: The wireless card in the computer will automatically detect the change in channel number on the router and will update the channel on the card.
CauseYou get disconnected wirelessly mainly due to an environmental interference. When the wireless channel is set to auto, the router will cycle to though channels when it detects significant interference. When the router changes channel the wireless connection will reset itself and disconnect all wireless clients connected to the router. Wireless signals are prone to interference from cordless phones and electrical appliances (e.g., vacuum cleaners, microwave ovens). This is one of the more popular reasons Belkin wireless connections can drop. Good Luck Mark P.S. Please leave a rating.

Network Cable Unplugged

mairelina, if all was well 2 days ago then resetting the router should fix your problem. usually a small button on the back of the router.

chelliepooh, you need to check that the router's wireless function is on. connect using the ethernet and go to the config page (usually make sure wireless is on and security is set to wpa-psk.

if you will connect the desktop hardwired or dierctly to the router, make sure that the ethernet adapter is properly installed and the ethernet cable is working.

if you will connect the desktop wirelessly, make sure that the wireless adapter is properly installed on the desktop and make sure that the wireless settings are properly configured.

My router doesnt seem to be Broadcasting the wireless connecition!

it may be that the router is not assigning ip addreses properly, and is duplicating the ip address on all pc's. or you have done the windows diagnose and repair or detect problems. Go to the properties of each wireless card in control panel>network connections and on the TCP/IP line click propertes again and ensure obtain ip address automatically is checked. Also go into the routers settings and ensure DHCP is enabled to give all pc's an automatic ip address. Restart all pc's and your router (not Reset) and you should get renewed ip addresses and be able to connect.
