How do i speed up my wifi?

There're a number of ways to "broaden" your Broadband Wi-Fi link.

(a) move laptop closer to the Wireless Router, and/or remove signal obstructions between laptop and Wireless Router.

(b) move the Wireless Router to a channel other than the default (channel 6).
HOW: login to the Router management pages at, and change it.

(c) upgrade your Wireless-G router to Wireless-N (with the Linksys WRT310N you've aready done that, however).

(d) Switch from Wi-Fi to hardwired with a Cat 5e ethernet cable - you'll have better throughput and fewer CRC errors with a hardwired link.

(e) Recognize that 99% of the time the upload/download speed bottleneck is not the Broadband link, but the computer laptop system itself, so the best way to increase the speed of your Wi-Fi link is to optimize the computer system. Normally, increasing the physical link speed is wasted time and money - something those Verizon FIOS commercials will never tell you.

Put your money into upgrading RAM and running fewer startup group processes eating into system virtual memory (SWAPFILE.SYS) space.

If you can access only trusted web sites (typical of a workplace workstation), then you can optimize browser operation by eliminating Real-Time Anti-Virus shields such as: (File System Shield) scan on open, (File System Shield) scan on write, HTTP shield, Network shield, suspicious behavoir shield, Script Shield, and IM Shield. This will help to optimize your browser's activities. Web browser software is well known to be among the least efficient software ever devised. The typical user will have half a dozen Browser Extensions, and a dozen or more Browser Plug-ins, each further burdening an already over-burdened Browser. Most Users don't even know how many Browser Extensions and Plug-ins they're running, and inadvertently permit new ones to be installed daily.

Consider upgrading your laptop's CPU, rolling back from Windows 7 to Windows XP, and changing Operating Systems from a Microsoft Windows OS to Linux. Also consider using an Apple MacBook.

Lastly, perform a security scan on your system - nothing wrecks a laptop's performance faster than a virus/worm/trojan horse/rootkit/malware/spyware/tracking cookies/supercookies, etc.

My linksys router wont work

I take it that this is a Wireless-G Broadband router and you know what the risks are of turning off the firewall on this device...

What are you trying to do and why do you believe disabling the router's firewall is best?

If you must know then try this:

Open your Web browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, etc.) and type into the address bar.
Do not type www. Only type (this is the router's IP address and will allow you to log into it's settings menus).

Enter your user name and password (default is admin).
After the page opens, click the Security tab.

Click disable firewall and save changes.

Hope this helps...

Try reseating te broadband connection to the router.

It soundslike your router works if it connects to your laptop with a great signal. But its not sending any information through.

Try reseating. if it does not work. you might need to do a fresh reinstall of the router. Usually the broadband connections attach itself to a mac address of a network card. If you recently put a new router the network cards MAC address is different and it might not send signals through. like for me for cable i have the same issue.

Try this let me know how it does. If any problems please let me know.

I hope this helps

2wire router

Turn everything off. Router, PC etc. all OFF. Then start the PC, wait 2 mins. Then plug in the power to the router. Then the cable into the PC. Then check fireware [Zone Alarm etc] to see if it is recognised as receiving data. Click on IE or Firefox.
If this fails, do it again Have a coffee break. Remember the cable connects to the broadband and it flows in and out without the dreadful instruction CDs given you.

Asuming you are knowledgable about hooking up broadband i will guess that you know for a fact the its a good connection on the broadband routers side and there is actuall internet access and the problem is with your laptop.

If so then make sure you have the right installs.

get into your start menu at the bottom left> hover over settings>click on network connections and wait for the window to open. Right click on " LOCAL AREA CONNECTION" and select properties.

The little box should open showing a scrollable menu and say " Local area connection Properties" at the top. Make sure in the list of installed Items, you have at least the TCP/IP internet protocal installed and add version 6.

Also you can try cycling the power to your internet broadband router. Hook up the laptop, turn it on and log in, If you have a router that you are using to branch off your broadband to several computers, then unplug, wait 30 seconds and polug back in and it should register. If you are plugging directly into the Broadband router, cycle the power on it the same way.

Also make sure you are plugged into the right port on the router:)

Hope this helps.
