Question about Zoom (56600000) Router

Slow Access Speed to the Internet

Hi all, first post so be nice.

I've got a 2Meg broadband speed connection and recently I've found that my connection to the internet is really slow.  I've checked on the ADSL status in the router and it says it's 2,043 kbps but when I do broadband speed tests I am only getting less than 400kbps.  I have called my ISP and they say there's nothing wrong with my line and the ADSL status in the router shows this to be true.  Also, it can't be this computer as it's happening on my two laptops too so the only thing it can be is the router.

This has only started happening over the last 1.5 weeks.

Does anyone have any idea of what it can be?

    Should add that it's a Zoom X6 router I have.

  • Giania Oct 12, 2007

    Sorry, forgot to update this when I fixed it.  I had tried a few things and eventually I got it fixed by updating the firmware to the newest version then a hard reset.  It's done the trick and I'm back up to my 2M.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Yes it is ramji.  After a flash and hard reset.  Thanks for your comments.

How to check broadband speed


Before starting to check broadband speed test it is best to make sure that there are no other internet activities using your connection that might be using data, like app updates, streaming video, or online games.
Search on google there is many tools to check speed test.
Click on the start test button when you're ready, and wait a couple of minutes while the test runs. You will get an upload and download number in Mbps.
If your broadband speed is not good. I suggest you one of the best websites. Mungi is one of the best websites for broadband. They give us better speed, good connection, free services, and cheap charges. For getting more details about best nbn plans click on the link.

The 100m light flashes but the 10m don,t flash even though connected but speed very slow


The speed you are connected to your network at is 100mbs.
the 10m light shouldn't flash unless that's the speed of your network.
the slow speed is probably due to the bandwidth usage to the internet.
if anything else connects the internet on the network it will share the bandwidth. also depends on the broadband speed you are subscribed to.

Internet extremely slow on one network, fine on the other


Not knowing if this relates directly as i am not from Australia but have you checked with the ISP.

The phone line providing the internet access may be damaged in some way or require calibration to reduce line noise (which can cause slow speeds).

Alternatively, have you got a usage limit that you may have reached. ISPs have the ability to throttle back your connection speed.

Thanks

Sounds it is your modem. I had a similar issue with my old one. I had a westell 6100F and now have a 6100G that helped. My company had to replace about 150 of line about 1000 Ft away from my house. The cable was in a storm drain and it was getting wet and interupting my internat connection.

Slow internet download speed from my edimax ew 7206 access point


You dont say what internet access technology you are using - DSL, Cable Modem, satellite, etc.
It is possible that your aggregate speed is being throttled by excessive traffic somewhere ELSE in the network and it may have nothing to do with the link from you access point. When you reset it, it may attempt to operate at the maximum speed only to be throttled by some other choke point in the network.
When you reconnect and get the 4-5 speed, how long does it last? Can you actually see the difference in performance? Most people cant tell the difference unless they are downloading large files.

Download speed slows when router is on line.


If the router is offline then your not downloading anything, most down loads start fast then fall to a level your pc can handle, aka your connection speed.

My internet speed is slow.I connect it via bluetooth.


by any means even if the configuration of the system is also very good but still with the bluetooth you will not get the connectctivity speed like the broadband and that is same as with the wireless also you will not get the speed like you get from the broadband connection . as this is just the virtual connection with just give you the emergency support not like as usual cbroadband connectivity.

so that cannot be increased .

Have look in the router settings for the actual internet connection speeds, as these are a more true reading than the speed check as the speeds can vary at different times of the day and 2 or 3 speed checks can bring different results. your actual connection speed that is showing in the routers settings is the connection you are getting from your ISP. If you are with BT they usually recommend using their latest routers, why i'm not sure, as the only thing i have noted is that the MTU is set at 1500 (Maximum Transmition Units)and in other routers the MTU is automatically set at 1493, so look for the MTU setting and up it if necassary, but not above 1500, also double check all the settings, even put the bt router back in and see if speeds improve, if, you know the BT router is set up purposly for faster connection speeds. Also try checking your speed at a speed test site at a quieter time of day, you will also see different speed check sites give you different speed results.
