Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router
Before christmas we had just 1 desktop pc, then the kids got one each for xmas, 2 laptops and 1 desktop pc, the laptops connected to the router no problems, but when my sons desktop pc connected to the router was when the problem started, his desktop pc is connecting to the router via my sons laptop, which is slowing down the laptops internet connection speed, it is only running at 11bps, when we switch off the desktop, the laptop runs normal at excellent connection speed, but as soon as we switch on the desktop it again connects through the laptop, i have rang support but they cant understand why it is doing it. Please can you help.
Sounds like you are setup to use Internet Connection Sharing. don't do this. Have each computer connect to the internet via the router. If the router is wireless connect all computers wirelessly to the router that are wireless capable and any computers that are not wireless capable, connect them to the router via a cat5 cable to the cat5 ports on the router. This will solve your problem. BPCS
