Experiencing 15-25KBps slowdown and instability on L2TP
when i configure my router to connect via L2TP dialer, the internet connects fine, but i cannot get to my full speed.
i have a 3mbps connection, which should supply me about 375KBps.
instead im getting only 350KBps, and its instable, sometimes it gets even lower.
when i connect my computer directly to my modem i'm able to get to 375KBps easily, and its stable. so the problem must be with the router somehow.
so THEN, i got back to the router and i tried to use PPTP instead, but it got even worse.
so then i tried using "dynamic IP" mode, which allowes me to get an internal IP with my ISP to check my connection between me and my ISP only (no full internet connection, only a lan with some of the ISP's servers),
and when i checked the speed - it was 375KBps (directly to my ISP).
so this must mean there's something bad with the L2TP dialer in the router, right?
im using the right gateway and everything's exactly how my ISP instructed.
Re: Experiencing 15-25KBps slowdown and instability on...
The speed sounds normal to me, once you go wireless don't expect 100% of your bandwidth, the other problem can simply be interference from other wireless signals. Best way to defend against that is WPA or other wireless encryption and changing the wireless channel. Let me know how that goes @ copter64 on AIM

First thing to try is making sure you have the latest firmware on the router. If you have not logged into it before you need to type http://192.168.2.1 in your browser address bar and log in when prompted. The router by default does not have a password set so it might be worth setting one in system settings. You should find on the menu an option to update the firmware. Read the screen should guide you how do this. If the firmware is up-to-date and you still have a problem try disabling your firewall on the pc to see if it's getting in the way. Don't leave the firewall off if you find it's causing the problem you just have to work out how to configure it to allow the traffic out. The route should allow this traffic out by default.
"Error 766: A certificate could not be found. Connections that use the L2TP protocol over IPSec require the installation of a machine certificate, also known as a computer certificate."
"Error 766: The L2TP connection attempt failed because the security layer could not authenticate the remote computer."
Cause: Connections that use the L2TP protocol over IPSec require the installation of a machine certificate, also known as a computer certificate. You will see this error message when such a certificate is not available.
Typically, this error is generated on a remote access server that has active L2TP ports configured, the remote access service started but there is no certificate in the computer certificate store. This generates an event log message that tells the administrator that L2TP ports will not be able to accept calls until a certificate is acquired and RRAS is restarted.
Resolutions: 1. If you use PPTP VPN, select Automatic in Type of VPN.
2. If you use L2TP, check the remote access server and make sure there is certificate in the computer certificate store.
Login to your Belkin router and check to see if there is a firmware update available for your specific model. If so, download and install it as this may resolve the problem without doing anything else. (Be sure to save your configuration first)
The specifications for a F5D9230 state that it supports VPN passthrough so you shouldn't need to configure anything in the router itself. It may be necessary to open a few incoming ports but only as a last resort.
Would you also reply to this post and specify...
What OS are you running on your pc?
What VPN client are you using on your pc?
Ask the administrator of the Exchange server if they're using PPTP or L2TP for VPN connections.
Another option would be to use OWA (Outlook Web Access) to access your email if it has been installed on the Exchange server.
You should configure your Router as a "router" or as a bridge. Usually, you can access the router's IP via web service (using http://ip.address.of-this.router). In this web access, you can modify your router configuration to act as router or bridge, also you have to specify the DNS, DHCP configuration as well.
Maybe with posting your Type of router, i could help you more with it...
Who is your ISP?
It seems you are experiencing intermittent connection. Bypass the router and check if the same problem exist when connected directly to the modem. If the internet works fine with the modem.then you have to configure the router correctly.
Hello, I've had the electric cut off and immediately back on and I lost my connection from Wireless router to modem. I could not connect in the same way. I could access the router settings with wireless laptop and PC but not to internet on either. I bypassed the router and connected the PC computer to modem then to internet verifying with a browser. I then reconnected the computer cable back to router and router to modem. It stayed connected. But I'm not sure if you have a PC connected to the router also. Sometimes just unplugging some cables and replugging will solve problems. Hope this helps.
