Router greatly slows up/downloads to 25% of direct from modem

I'm using a LINKSYS WTP54G wireless router with a sharkfin modem. I got this router to work with my Vonage service. The router slows my up/downloads to under 1mb. Direct to the modem it's over 4mb. Suggestion for a faster router that works with Vonage? LINKSYS tried tweaking my router, no success. This thing's gotta go! Thanks in advance.

    Thanks. A suggestion for one that doesn't chop down what's happening is what I was looking for! I'm using a Macbook Pro with Leopard, (10.4), a Fujitsu laptop with XP Pro, and an old desktop with XP Home. With modem alone I was at 7.3mb dowloads! With the LINKSYS router WITH updated firmware... 467kbps. Ha! No Hulu TV watching there! Thanks.

    However, the Vision doesn't have an RJ11 jack for phone lines. How do you use it with Vonage? Let me know so I can order what I need. ;-) Thanks again.

I am using a Belkin N1 Vision router with Vonage and i am having no issues with speed at the moment. What OS and connection are you using. If its Vista and Wireless make sure you are using AES encryption and not TKIP as my wireless network was painfully slow using TKIP and lightning with AES and WPA2

peter_picasa:

You cannot use a Wireless Access Point (WAP) to connect directly to your IPS's modem. A WAP does not provide the ability to share a single IP address on the internet like a router does.

Either return the WAP for a refund and buy a wireless router or buy an Ethernet wired-only router and plug the WAP into the LAN side of that router. You would then plug the WAN side of the Ethernet wired router into your modem.

Thanks for using FixYa.

HOW TO USE INTERNET IN MORE THAN ONE PC FROM LINKSYS WIRELESS G B


You have two ways on how you can get other computer online through this router. First, you can wired them (using an Ethernet cable) to one of the Ethernet ports on the back of the router. They are the ones labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4.

Second is through wireless, but those computers that will connect through wireless must also have a wireless adapter to be able to pick up the signal that this router is broadcasting.

Running slow


Is it running slow on both wired and wireless connections? how about if a PC is wired directly to the modem? That will eliminate the router as the issue (slow internet could be your modem or the connection itself).

If you're sure it's the router (wireless and wired) then upgrading the firmware would be first step. You can download the latest firmware from linksys.com and get it installed via the web interface of the router (probably found by going to http://192.168.1.1).

If a firmware update doesn't do it you can change your DNS servers from being automatically detected from your ISP to public ones. This may help web pages load faster. You can enter them also using the web interface. Set the Primary and Secondary DNS address to the numbers below (they are from OpenDNS.com).

Primary 208.67.222.222
Secondary 208.67.220.220

As last resort you might want to use a JTAG cable and debricking programming software. If your router is brikced or you want to change the firmware this cable can do it. The cable will connect to your parallel port and your wireless router so you can repair your router. They are about $5.95.

Your IP address for you linksys router needs to be changed.  More than likely there using the same IP address such as 192.168.0.1.
You have to convert your linksys router to a switch and change the IP address range it uses to on that doesn't conflict with the Verizon router.
10.150.1.1 should work.

Slow downloading movies,grtting on internet


Try downloading movies when your pc is directly connected to your modem. If connection is very much faster then upgrade the firmware of the router.
