Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router

2 Answers

Question For Experts ONLY

You know how you get a boost of speed if you use the same brand of wireless network adapter as the brand of router? Well my question is, can you confuse the router into thinking that I have a linksys wirless network adapter so that I can get an extra burst of speed. My router is linksys. My wireless network adapter is a generic one so it doesn't really have a name but I think its called---EDUP?? Anyway I have researched this very little but something tells me its not possible. Thanks I will rate you good, everyone put as many comments as you can. Please don't put garbage.

Well - at least to my knowledge (and I will be more than happy to be convinced otherwise), it is not possible to tweak another adapter into the so-called "Super-G" mode.

The reason?

Super G gets part of its speed increase from "bonding" data from two non-overlapping wireless channels together (normal Wi-Fi uses only 1 out of the 11 channels in the 2.4-GHz range). This channel bonding, though, increases the potential for troublesome interference with microwave ovens, with cell phones and with other Wi-Fi networks. If your wireless adapter can't physically handle channel bonding, ther is no way of "tricking" the router into bursting the speed.
The only reason I see to use Super-G is to transfer large files from one computer to another wirelessly or to stream high-quality multimedia files.

If your ISP download is 30Mbps and your router transfers with 54Mbps on "normal" 802.11g - what's the deal?

However, the fact remains that real Wi-Fi speeds, measured in terms of file transfers, are always slower than the claimed data rate. Headers, handshakes and other overhead take up a substantial amount of the available bandwidth and lead to degration. Compare the real file transfer speeds I once measured within each class:

  • 802.11b, nominally 11 Mbit/s, actual throughput 4.5Mbit/s
  • 802.11g, nominally 54 Mbit/s, actual throughput 18 Mbit/s
  • Boosted G, nominally 108 Mbit/s or 125 Mbit/s, actual throughput 22 to 24 Mbit/s
I think it's neither worth the hassle nor the money, especially if you have "non Super-G" clients in you LAN, because the performance will drop to standard speeds anyways.

So - what do you think? - Let me know!

PS: Finally an interesting question - Thanks. (Not the "forgot my password - can you help?..." stuff.)

    Hi Hasan,

    you wrote: "...No matter whats brand, you can boost your adapter performance by changing its link speed or duplex to 100M/Full Duplex. This will gives you maximum performance then Auto Function of the Duplex."

    Can you enlighten me and tell me how you do that?

    Thanks,

    Dante

Hi,

It's true that using router and adapter of the same brand will give you maximum performance. And YES, you can confuse both router and adapter. No matter whats brand, you can boost your adapter performance by changing its link speed or duplex to 100M/Full Duplex. This will gives you maximum performance then Auto Function of the Duplex.
Logically its NOT True but Practically I have done it many time.

Hassan

How can i boost and speed up my Wifi network reception ?


Firstly download WiFi Analyser from Google Play store and compare you WiFi with others in your area. This will enable you to change the channel. Change channel by logging into your router - 192.168.1.1.
Try moving your router to a more central place in your home and use the analyser to check if any improvement.
Next try a wireless extender. This will drop your speed a little but give a stronger signal in weak areas.
Also try power line adapters.
If you are using a few devices ensure that you are not mixing wireless g and n products at same time. Using a g product will mean that your whole wireless will be running at that speed even when your other device is n. If you need both connect another g router to one of the n router LAN ports with dhcp disabled. That way you can have the two devices connected at the correct speed.
Some routers will let you connect a bigger aerial which could boost you reception. Some devices have very poor wireless antennas - seems you what you pay for in this area.

There appears to be some interference from external sources. Check if:
  • Your router is near anything that can give any microwave radiation
  • Your router is anywhere near a freezer/refrigerator
  • Your router is near any device that gives off any interference
You might need to boost the signal in the router. Try using the device on a computer that is closer to the router and check if the fluctuations still occur. If they do you might have a faulty adapter and you may have to return/replace it.

My wireless adapter says i have a good connection, but when I go to play games online my signal strength changes so much it makes the game glitch


Whats going on is that your signal strength from the router is good but when playing a game the green bars that you see are not that of the signal strength but that of the internet Speed. Seems the signal is there but the internet speed is not I would restart modem and router see if this helps boost speed you can always check speeds at speedtest.net to be sure you are getting what you are paying for.

I want to know,what is the rigth wirless computer adaptor for ,2wiremoden at&t wirless.


Determine the wireless standard that you need. Different wireless routers support different wireless standards such as 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g and 802.11n (most recent). Keep in mind that each of these standards may differ in transmission rate, frequency, bandwidth, or even backwards compatibility.

Like with most computer products, manufacturers advertise wireless routers with an emphasis on speed. After all, more speed is better, right? Well, maybe.
Most broadband customers in the U.S.-and even many other countries-currently have Internet speeds under 10Mbps. In other words, a router promising much faster speeds is not going to make your Web surfing or movie downloads any faster. The router can't go faster than your broadband. For (super lucky) broadband customers with speeds above 30Mbps, you may benefit from enhanced wireless g routers (more on that in a moment) or wireless n, which has adequate overhead to share a connection this fast.
A faster wireless router can increase the speed of your local network, meaning sharing data between your own PCs will benefit-if this is something you do, such as streaming music or video from one device to another inside your home.

The 2700,2701 and 2070 are fine on installation because do,nt rquire any OS.The 100/1000 only support Win XP and MAC.For my selection i choose the 2700.

Also other will be fine for your adapter. The major wireless router manufacturers are Linksys/Cisco, D-Link, and Netgear. You will see these brands dominate in most retail stores. Look for sales because these manufacturers often discount models from week to week and you can sometimes find a good deal for substantially less than $50.

Can a wireless card work with a router from a different brand???


Hi Ginger,

To answer your question, No they do not have to be the same brand.

Just make sure you know the information needed to connect to your wireless network, such as the SSID, Security-type (WPA-PSK, WEP, etc.) and offcourse the key/passphrase.

If you need more help, let me know.

Helo top experts


i assume that your computer can access the internet while hardwired to the wireless-g router. if so, you just need to connect your wireless computer to the wireless signal of the wireless-g router. you just need to scan or view the available networks detected by your wireless computer and select the wireless name (ssid) of your wireless-g router. make sure to enter the correct wireless security (network key) if it's enabled on your router. i hope this'll help you but if you can't still access the internet wirelessly, provide the specific model number of your wireless-g router, specify if you're using a laptop or a wireless desktop, and the brand and model of your wireless card/adapter
