Http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest?flash=1
here ya can make a speed test on different servers to see the real speed for download...cause you might be read a speed that was valuable for one site or server only ...
second keep in mind that the download speed is imposed by the provider and the kind of deal you have with him ...
no matter if you have LAN connection ..the provider is the one that makes the speed limits ..
check the torrent program or what you use to not be limited by settings on downloads..
you can also try an optimizer for better speed ...but they can not do miracles on limits ...so ...for real increasing of speed ..you have to see your provider...
here is a site with a few speed optimizers that ya might try ..

and keep in mind that what you read on the local area connection speed is the protocol maximum speed ...not the speed you actually have on ...

You might be referring to what you see when you try to point your mouse to your network connection - the 100mbps connectivity. This is just the internet speed notification and not your exact bandwidth allocated for uploading or downloading activities.

The bandwidth being given to you is being allocated to you by your network provider and to actually increase this is only by upgrading your internet plan to them.

If you are doing other internet based application like playing videos or music or downloading heavy sites and at the same time downloading a large file, it will slowdown the performance since they are sharing with the bandwidth allocation. So what you can do is do it one at a time. It would also help if you clear your cache or cookies and scan your computer for possible virus infection.

Remember, internet connectivity is different from internet bandwidth. I hope this information helps. If you need further clarification, please don't hesitate to ask.

The 100mbps that you mentioned is possibly the bandwidth size of your LAN Card (Network Interface Card) and not the speed of your internet connection coming from your ISP (Internet Service Provider). To test your actual internet connection speed, visit http://speedtest.net

However, regardless of your internet speed, you can boost your download speed using free software proven to boost download speed. Visit and download them to try:

1. Download Accelerator Plus
2. DownloadThemAll Tools for Firefox

Netgear N300 is slowing down my internet connection


The router limits the data speed to the wireless reception.

802.11 G speed (maximum) is 54Mbps.

I am running hughes net satelite internet on a hughes HN 9000 modem and trying to setup and configure my linksys E3000 wireless router for two hp laptops on direct ethernet connection to our desktop,...


Are you trying to connect the laptops via wireless? Is that where you are seeing 75 mbps? I am assuming you are, and 75 mbps is really not how fast your internet connection is. Rather, that is how fast you are transferring data from your laptop to the wireless router and back. Generally speaking, this should be a way faster connection than your internet is running at. Chances are your internet connection speed is 10 to 20 mbps, which is good and fast.

It is easy to get the two confused, but basically a wireless connection of 75 mbps is an uber fast connection to your wireless router, and only if your actual internet connection was faster than that 75 mbps would you see any slowness due to that.

Wireless N routers are capable of delivering up to 100 mbps connection speeds, but again that is only from your device to the router. The router then goes to your modem and out through the internet. Chances are that connection is not 100 mbps because of interference, which can be walls, other wireless devices, etc.

One way to test your actual internet connection speed is to go to www.speedtest.net and click on one of the links on the map. This will tell you how many mbps you get to the internet.

I have broadband internet connection on my computer. the download speed that it shows is 100mbps; whereas i get only 20mbps. how do i get a higher speed of downloading.


hey , this is always the case.
if it shows 100 mbps does not mean you will get 100mbps download speed.as far as i know no internet connection provides 100mbps download speed.

however a little improvement can be made in the speed by optimising your settings .
you may use Modem Booster , download accelerator for this purpose.
if you do lot of downloading download idm(internet download manager).to accelerate your download.

one thing i should add for your knowledge.understand the difference between mbps and MBps.B stands for byte and there are 8 bits in a byte so take a conversion factor of 8.this is a general misconception among people and whilie downloading note that the speed is shown in B and not b.

Regards.

Low connection speed


Hello, the 100Mbps connection is to your router and not to the Internet. that means you can copy with a speed of 100Mbps(theoretically) between computers in YOUR network. You can test your Internet speed on www.speedtest.net, choose a nearby test point. If you paying for 2mbps and only getting 0.15 I suggest that you contact your Internet Provider because its very low if you paying for 2mbps.

Loss of speed with wireless


Wireless conection will only run as fast as your slowest device. i.e.
802.11 only supported a maximum network bandwidth of 2 Mbps.
802.11b supports bandwidth up to 11 Mbps.
802.11g supports bandwidth up to 54 Mbps.
802.11n connections should support data rates of over 100 Mbps.

So if you are running a mixed network with lets say a 802.11b wifi card on a laptop and a new laptop with 802.11n, your speed will only be that of the 802.11b card.

I hope that helps.

Very Very LOW Download speeds....!!!


1. Internet Service Providers (whoever you have your broadband connection with) are more and more limiting your download speeds via torrent to 20 or 30k. This is by design of your ISP and there is nothing much that you can do about and the reason they do it is to prevent people from downloading copyrighted materials.

2. If you have a legitimate reason for using torrent technology to download 1GB+ files often, then contact your ISP about it and tell them you are trying to download legal files of whatever it is you are trying to download and see if they will fix it. Probably not, however. In fact, they probably won't even admit to using sandvine to limit your download speeds. I know for one Comcast is doing this very thing.

What is the maximum speed


The speed of that router is 100 mbps (wired) and 54 mbps (wireless). If you have a 1 mbps line, that router is more than sufficient. Your speed will change simply because someone is using the internet connection. Downloading, uploading, surfing, chatting, listening to internet radio, etc. Make sure no one is on, then test it to see what speed you get. Go to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and select the server nearest to you. It is a very good speed tester.
Good Luck!

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.

In my new router getting less speed in wireless connection than when connected with a cable.


The 54 mbps refers to the stream rate from the router to the wireless reciever, the 100-110 kbps you refer to is the connection speed to the internet. These are two different things, if you were transfering files from one pc to another it would transfer at a max speed of 54 mbps. If you connect via a cable it would be 100 mbps. Your internet speed depends on your isp server your downloads will be less than 256kbps, with even less upload speed.

How fast can the data go?


The speed of the cable modem is only one part of the equation. There are a combination of factors starting with how fast your PC can handle IP traffic, then how fast your PC to cable modem interface is, then how fast the cable modem system runs and how much congestion there is on the cable network, then how big a pipe there is at the head end to the rest of the Internet. Different models of PCs and Macs are able to handle IP traffic at varying speeds. Very few can handle it at 30 Mbps. Ethernet (10baseT) is the most popular cable modem interface standard for the PC. This automatically limits the speed of the connection to under 10 Mbps even if the cable modem can receive at 30 Mbps. Most Local Area Networks use 10baseT Ethernet, and although they are 10 Mbps networks, it takes a LOT longer than one second to transmit 10 megabits (or 1.25 megabytes) of data from one terminal to another. Cable modems on the same node share bandwidth, which means that congestion is created when too many people are on simultaneously. One user downloading large graphic or video files can use a significant portion of shared bandwidth, slowing down access for other users in the same neighborhood. Most independent Internet Service Providers today connect to the Internet using a single 1.5 Mbps "T1" telephone line. All of their subscribers share that 1.5 Mbps pipeline. Cable head-ends connecting to the Internet backbone using a T1 limit their subscribers to an absolute maximum of 1.5 Mbps. To create the appearance of faster network access, service companies plan to store or "cache" frequently requested web sites and Usenet newsgroups on a server at their head-end. Storing data locally will remove some of the bottleneck at the backbone connection. How fast can they go? In a perfect world (or lab) they can receive data at speeds up to 30 Mbps. In the real world, with cost conscious cable companies running the systems, the speed will probably fall to about 1.5 Mbps.
