Let's get some baseline data.

Got to CNET Bandwidth test HERE

Record the upstream and downstream KBPS with TP-Link TD-W8960N Wireless N ADSL2+ Modem Router.


Clear the browser cache or reboot PC.


Connect the original setup and do the CNET test again.

==========

Did you assign security WEP code?

Is it possible some computer(s) are riding on your wifi now?

Check TP-LINK admin page and see who in using you wifi now.

It needs power and the router plugging into the line via the line socket.

A Ethernet cable needs to plugged into one of the WAN ports to configure the router, the other end needed to be plugged into a pc.

I just brought a Tp-link TD-w896ON but the internet speed 1.67 mbps ??


The line speed is controlled by your internet service provider, not by your router. If you have something like AT&T as your internet service provider, then they sell 3 or 4 different line speeds or packages. The cheapest will get you the slowest line speed. So if you have a 300mbps router but you purchased AT&T's cheapest line speed it will never allow you to do downloads, uploads or streams at 300mbps. You gotta Pay to Play. :)

Error 045 when setup the modem with Win7 64 bit, connection to network failed.


What the problem? i'm also using this router...
how you setting the router?using wifi or LAN?
BEFORE THAT,
DOWNLOAD HERE

RUN INSTALLER FIRST BEFORE CONNECT TO YOUR ROUTER.
connect line rj11 to link dsl,rj45 to your pc/laptop.(dont use wifi to setup the router)
then plug the power and ON the wifi router.
After that, check light for ADSL, WLAN INTERNET AND PORT(1 OR 2 OR 3 OR 4) IS BLINK

..IF light is okay and blink, then you can setup the utilities.
Is easy. TP-LINK get ready with software that you can setting the router as like professional with the secure encryption. For receiver I'm preferred you using tp-link also. Then you can use QSS function only just click button QSS..
