Speed on Verizon Fios


I had this problem or similar. Verizon (in New England area) upgraded my speed to 7MPS Download and 1MBS upload. It was slower than the old speed. I called in Verizon and after a lot of back and forth - well, to be fair, they were good - it turns out that the router on their site was old. They unplugged us from it and put us on a newer faster router and Voila! Worth a shot.

Belkin n150 download speeds are low


Low Download speed may be due to various conditions such as,
* If your Internet connection is shared with others on your LAN and they are using up all the available bandwidth. Tell them to knock it off
* Your ISP may be limiting your P2P traffic via some method of packet shaping. Call up the ISP and inquire if they do anything with P2P traffic.
* Check whether you haven set up your third party firewall or internet monitor software correctly.
* Your computer might have been infected with malicious software which altered the low level network settings of your operating system.
* You need to optimize your operating system for your current connection speed. First, close all P2P applications. Next run the DSLReports TweakTest. Once you have optimized it, then run a speed test at www.ScanMySpeed.Com This will give you a good idea what your maximum download and upload speeds are. If you're getting within 10% of your connection speed, that's the best you can get! If you are having trouble with your connection, and it relates to packet loss, excessive latency, or Internet or ISP congestion, running the Line Quality Test may help find the cause

MR814 Netgear internet is slow


Have you tried unplugging your router from the power outlet for 2 minutes then plugging it back again? Also, it is advisable to turn off routers every once in a while to let it rest. If problems still persist, you should try contacting your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for additional support.

Netgear MR814 and windows 7 issues


There shouldn't be any issues with the router as a result of Windows 7. The Router does not interact with the computer in such a way as to cause incompatibility like with hardware or software.
That said, what could be causing issues may be out of date WiFi card drivers. Windows 7 has an incredible driver database and I have only come across a handful of things it doesn't detect. But sometimes even with the things it does pick up, a better driver is available.

You should run Windows Update by going to Start (2252758.gif), All Programs, and then Windows Update. If not already set up, you should click change settings on the left and make sure all recommended updates are received like important updates. This way you will get all updates available, including hardware updates.

If this does not seem to improve the situation I will be posting a How To on properly configuring your Netgear router. This will ensure your settings are set to their most optimal settings.

Good Luck,

I want to use my netgear mr814 wireless router to connect to the internet but i cannot remember the password


which password you don't remember the Router or the Internet account?

if it's the router- you can reset it by clicking on the reset (very hard to find) button.
if it is the Internet password- just call your ISP and have them reset your password.

I am trying to get my netgear mr814v2 to connect to the internet via hard wire to comcast with no luck. the connection is good when i go direct from teh computer


If you connect the computer to the modem it works, that means the modem is working.
Now connect the modem and the computer to the router and open the router set up page.
Clone the MAC address of the computer on the router and power cycle the network.
That will work.

Ip 3rd time is chainging.all time speed is going down


what ip are you referring to? most internet service providers provide dynamic ip addressing to their residential customers and dynamic ip addressing means that your ip address will be changed periodically. Static ip addresses (ip adoes not change) is usually provided for business consumers.
as for the speed, if you subscribe to 4Mbps speed package, what it actually means is that you willbe getting UP TO 4Mbps speed. that would explain why your speed goes down. you will not always have 4Mbps.
