RE: 3G wireless broadband. my computer runs slow when i download videos. could my 3G stick beweak or is it my server which is Mobi PCS be at fault?

3G is not a very fast way to watch video. The bandwidth is not wide enough. The standard bandwidth for 802.1 g is 54mbps the usually obtained bandwidth is in the region of 1mbps. This speed is good enough for a small screen resolution video. But for a larger screen resolution it is no way near fast enough. It is not your stick or your computer. it is just that you are using the wrong data transfer system for the job.

Vizio xr100 connection slow

This router has a theoretical max throughput of 54Mbps which realistically well get you about 26-30Mbps between your computer and the router. Now if you have more than one person using it this will slow your speed down, also the further away from the router you are the more the speed degrades to a point of about 1Mbps at around 120 ft give or take depending upon router placement and anything solid in between you and the router. You also have to take into account that this router operates in the same frequency range as cordless phones, microwaves and anyone else's wireless network close to your own. Now compound this with the limitation of your ISP take your ISP's advertised speed and cut it in half this is about what you can expect in speed. You have some options, You can run an ethernet cable from computer to router to eliminate all the wireless problems, you can move the router to a more central location in your house/office or get a wireless extender to increase the signal, you can invest in a MIMO n router which overcomes a lot of the problems with g routers. Also you can invest in a better internet connection. Hope this helps a bit, let me know if you have questions. Also to test your speed you can visit

What can i do to fix the lag on youtube?

If all websites load slowly - check your internet connection speed at - for normal youtube video watching >2Mbps download speed is sufficient. The solution is changing the video quality on the youtube screen to least possible 360p or even 240p to run smoothly on 1Mbps.
If only youtube site opens slowly, while other sites open quickly - your internet provider might be cheating in order to save usage of bandwidth (video sites take 50-90% of the total internet bandwidth). Make a complaint to your internet provider, supervising authorities, or even change for another - better internet provider

the problem with wireless routers is that they only will put out little more than 1mbps it may say 54mbps, but it'll usually only download at about 1 mbps, ive found it frustrating myself, but thats all the firmware in those will allow, ive tried to upgrade mine, but still the same, there isnt a fix that i'm aware of, wireless "N" maybe different but i doubt it, sending that much information wirelessly creates alot of heat,

Ethernet works wirelss is very slow

Most of the wireless adapters connect at a speed of 54mbps max, while wired lan connection adaptors (LAN adapter/cable) works at max of 100/1000mbps. hence use a cable to connect the PC to make it faster than using wireless.
