Question about D-Link DIR-615 Wireless Router

4 Answers

Well, it's my speed. It' extremely slow. I've tweaked settings, looked on-line and nothing. Here's what it's speed is at: http://www.speedtest.net/result/521763566.png As you can see, the connection is terrible. Is this the average? I'm using on-board hookup, my motherboard is a Gigabyte 945gzms-2, I'm running Windows 7 with firewall enabled, my anti-virus is Avira. All the latest updates have been installed. There is one other computer installed plus a PS3. Said devices don't interfere with the other's connection. My wireless is turned off by me and everything is hooked up. When I view movies on the PS3, the connection is extremely fast.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Still, the upload is slow though. Is there a program I could use to help tweak the tcp/ip? Open the connection up?

    My upload speed is the issue, mainly. Downloading is not an issue. Is there a way to make it equal?

    Static IP is the only tweaking I've done on my router.
    I followed the step-by-step instructions from portforwarding.com.
    We're using Shaw High Speed Cable for a connection.
    The router and modem had to be hooked up in the basement. The wiring is set up so each room could connect to the net. But there are only three connections to the router, as stated before, the other connections are unplugged.

  • Mixplyxit Tigerbait Jul 21, 2009

    Well, I just did the static ip based on portforward.com.
    The router and cable modem are hooked up in the basement because the wiring is just a central hub that connects to each room.
    Only 3 connections are inserted into the router, the rest aren't in use.
    I switched off my firewall and anti-virus to see a difference. None.
    I scanned my computer with antivirus, malware and hijack checker, clean.
    Got rid of my cache on my browser.
    The router has the latest firmware and all my drivers are up to date.
    The cords are appropriate for internet.
    I checked the router settings and there's no wireless connections as I have turned this feature off.

    I read once that you can tweak something in the registry?

    Let me know what you think, thank you.

    Why does it keep asking for a clarification request...

  • Mixplyxit Tigerbait Jul 21, 2009

    And again...

  • Mixplyxit Tigerbait Jul 21, 2009

    Thank you, you're helpful and friendly.
    I kind of figured the last thing to do was phone Shaw.
    If it's not me it's them. Thank you so much.
    See you soon in the Experts Lounge!

    Just out of curiosity, what settings did you tweak and where did you make the changes? Also, if you could provide more info on how your systems are connected then I and others here would be in a better position to help you. EX. What type of internet service, DSL, Cable, what kind of router, etc. Basically, what is between your internet connection coming into your house and your pc?

Your description of your setup sounds like you have things configured correctly on your end.

The only way to get a higher upload speed would be to contact you internet provider and ask if they have any residential plans that offer higher upload speeds.

Internet providers normally limit the upload speed available to residential customers in order to discourage them from operating web server and other services from their homes.

Naturally, if you cough up the money for a business account then the higher speeds become available according to what you're willing to pay.

I actually read the fine print of my ISP's "Terms of Use Policy" and it specifically stated that residential customers are not permitted to operate servers. Seems to fall right in line with the lower upload speeds available to residential customers.

Your connection speed is anything but terrible.
The numbers may seem low but they aren't.
Your download speed is 16.84Mb/s

My download speed is 4.5Mb/s. According the the test results from speedtest.net, it would take me 1 minute to download a 35M video clip or 26 minutes to download a 800M movie.

Your speed is 4 times faster than mine.
One of my daughters can stream content from the internet and at the same time I can have 3 Xbox 360's online connected to Xbox Live playing with my my other daughter and son without getting any dropouts. As I'm typing this, 2 Xboxes are online and 2 laptops are online and we're not experiencing any performance problems.

You mentioned that your PS3 is extremely fast when watching movies. If you're experiencing performance problems with your Windows 7 pc or the other one, then I would take a close look at the Avira antivirus product to see if that is the cause of the problem.

Try lowering screen resolution on TV. There is a chance your video card can't handle HD like 1080 dpi or higher. Plus make sure TV input is set to VGA.

Cant send or receive fax just get a fast busy signal when I try to send fax. please help


Normally a fast busy signal indicates a problem with the phone line. You need to call the phone company and have them do a "line check"
Sometimes they can fix this over the phone, sometimes a service call is required. No charge to you tho.

Since you mentioned that you have an outside line, do you have to use a code to dial out normally? Try plugging in a phone to the line for your fax machine, and attempt to dial the number for the other fax machine using the phone. You should reach the fax and hear a high pitched sequence of tones. This is the other fax machine trying to establish a connection. If you still get a busy signal, try calling the owner and letting them know that their fax machine is not accepting incoming calls.

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

The modem is extremely slow-most downloads are far too slow


Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.

Slow Printing


it may just be a slow printer head, maybe an upgrade is in order. look on the box for page printing speed.
it may also be that you have the resolution set too high for basic printing. try turning this down slightly.

hope this helps.
