Re: Slow Internet

Upgraded the latest firmware in the router, reset your router and reconfigure it, check if your dsl modem is configured in a bridge mode if not configure your modem in bridge mode and reconfig your links router accordingly, that will fix your problem

Slow internet speed when connected to router

So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.
2.)Place the wireless router in an ideal location. The higher it is, the better, but don't put it near metal objects.
3.)Get as close as possible to the router with whatever device you're trying to connect.
4.)Keep the router and your connecting device away from other electronics. You should especially keep away from phones, fax machines and microwaves. etc.,
5.)Adjust the Wifi antenna if it has one.
6.)Change the router's channel, especially if other wireless routers are nearby.Following these steps would give you stable internet connection and also increased speed in connection. You can check your internet speed from www.ScanMySpeed.Com before and after following these steps.

Slow Speed due to router

hi there,
I had a problem, my internet was working slow on wireless and when connected with wire it use to fly like anything.
What i found from reading alot if that often people think that there router is conduction some problem after few years of usage and the signals are not omitting correctly or something.
However I got a simple solution for you all I found that the internet was absolutely fine when connected with wire.
So after doing alot of other activities i found that the FIREWALL was turned on, on both the devices i.e. My ROUTER and my DSL MODEM.
So please keep in mind usually there is not problem with the Router or the DSL modem if you feel the internet is slow please check your firewall and simply turn one firewall on either it should be routers or dsl modem.
Well this helped me and now i get good speed.
If there is anything i can help you with please do not hesitate to ask.
Thank you :)

I have tested my internet connection with my ISP and the connection is fine but the signal from my wireless router seems to be the problem. This just started out of the blue (no recent changes). Pages load...

Disconnect the router, and use an Ethernet cable to connect your computer's network-port directly to the cable-modem (or DSL-modem), and try the "performance" of Internet activity.

Computer repair tech said Linskey wireless caused internet prob

If you are using DSL as your internet connection there is a timeout period that could be setup in the linksys.

In order to change this you need to log into your router and on check on the setup page. You see the timeout option.

Check with your linksys manual for detailed instructions for logging into the unit. If you dont have it, you can always get it from their website.

Wireless routers

If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
