Slow speed with my Belkin G Router!!! Help!!!

I just got the Belkin G Router, I had trouble getting a wireless connection to my laptop. I called Belkin Support and they fixed the problem by making some dynamic connection. But then when I go to Youtube to watch videos, my desktop which is hardwired to the Belkin router and my laptop which is wireless connected to the Belkin router are not loading the videos or just loads less than half of the video. But when I connect either computer directly from the attyahoo modem the connection is perfect. It seems that there is a problem with the router!! Help if anyone know how to fix this!!!

Re: Slow speed with my Belkin G Router!!! Help!!!

Alright figured out a way to speed up the connections

under firewall - Disable it. Must be slowing down everything. Just make sure you have at least windows firewall (XP) or something else as you are directly connected to the internet now.

Let me know if this helps anyone.

Check your firewall in the router. wireless g is set to 54mbs. and if your laptop is a b device it is set to 10mbs and eathernet is 100mbs. If I am watching utube or what ever I plug into eathernet. down loading is real slow with a wireless b device

Belkin Pre-N Wifi - Speed problem


When using a laptop that has a N-wireless card the computer will to connect to a G-wireless router the laptop will be able to connect but because the router is a G-wireless the speeds will not be as fast. speeds around 10 to 20 Mbps is about normal. I don't know why your computer is saying that you are getting speeds around 108 Mbps. Residential computers don't reach speeds that fast but some business computers running off of an T-3 internet will have speeds up to that high so that they can keep up with large amount of data being transferred over there networks. As for the USB, i have seen an USB adapter that was g-wireless at at Wal-mart for about $20-30.

Belkin Wireless G router

If you're computer is slow in the internet connection because of this router, that will be cause by the router since this device has a built in firewall inside it and the speed of internet that you have before when directly connected to your modem wont be same ecause of that, and there's no way you can add up a memory on this router, if you want try to update the frmware of the router and that will help in speeding up the connection....

Hope that helps........

Wireless Router use with Wildblue Satelite Modem

You should be aware of a class action lawsuit that Belkin and the complaintent settled recently. The lawsuit was filed complaining that certain Belkin routers did not obtain optimal speeds as advertised.
Belkin has agreed to provide affected customers a discount program to purchase a new router. You will need to search elsewheres for the details.
