Router makes surfing real slow

While using the router to surf it is really slow or not working at all while if I plug internet directly to the computer it works fine.
Some days the router can act normal but most of the time a simple page
like google.com can take up to 8-10 seconds to load.
What steps can I go through to see what the problem is with the router?

    Maybe I should have pointed out that the first cable goes from a converter in the wall to the router directly so this is not the issue.

Are your internet provider has its own MODEM. Because this might be a reason why your connection is slow. Particularly its rerouting your connection into double path so you have to get the Registered IP Address on your internet provider then only use your New Router itself to give relay on data. Good luck!

Please help...internet won't connect


You may be running into a problem of your ISP only allowing one computer on the internet. while the internet is on can you access the internet from the desktop comcast originally setup?  If so that is more then likely your problem.

I have comcast myself and they told me they do not allow home networks. I fixed that problem by using the mac address cloning feature in my router.

The setup cd is also junk, all you should really need to do is:
1. unplug modem, router, and turn off computers
2. Plug modem into router
3. Plug computers into router (don't worry about wireless right now)
4. Turn on modem, wait 20 seconds or so for lights to set,
5. Turn on router. again wait for lights to set
6. Turn on ONE computer that is hard wired into the router
7 Try to surf the net.
8. If successfull try to connect wireless computers (Without using cd) and see if they surf.

If not call comcast and see if your computers are trying to obtain real-world ip's instead of LAN ip's like they should.
If so, you'll need to enable DHCP on the router.
