Question about Computers & Internet
I have comcast cable for internet for my home computer, but wanted to set up a wireless network for when I use my work computer at home. After installing a wireless belkin (N) router between my modem and Mac, the wireless connection is fine for my laptop use, but now internet on the Mac is much slower.
Is this a common issue when using wireless routers, and are there any suggestions on how to fix this?
Had the same problem with my Linksys WRT150N. Turned out the router had quit working for hardwired connected PC's, after all the troubleshooting, changing settings (including MTU), upgrading firmware and spending time consulting with Linksys technical support. However, Linksys was not the one who discovered the router was no good. I reinstalled an old router (G) and connected the cables the same way it was with my Linksys and found the internet on the hardwired connected PC working excellent. Another sign the Linksys router was bad was when typing the IP address (192.168.1.1) to configure the router, there was no response...oh well. Got about 3 yrs. out of the WRT150N.
