Question about NetGear WGR614 Wireless Router

1 Answer

Connection is VERY slow!

I have upgraded all drivers, all firmware, have tried changing channels, forcing it to "g" only or "b" only, and it seems no matter what I do, my laptop won't establish a connection any faster than 1 mbps. It may go slightly faster after each initial change, but only lasts about 10 seconds before bottoming out again at 1. Any suggestions before I toss it out the window?

It sounds like you either:

A) Too far away from the router to establish a reliable connection.

-OR-

B) Your wireless card is not compatible with the router.

If it's B - I recommend disabling WEP to see what happens. If you are connecting fine with WEP disabled, the problem is definitely wi-fi card compatibility with your router.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

My Linksys wrt300n wireless N router is slow


You have WRT300N router. If it is very old model then upgrade the firmware of the router. and try changing the wireless channel on the router.
Firmware is the software of the router.
Download the latest firmware of the router. Go to the manufacturer's web site and download the firmware of the router.
Open the set up page of the router and upgrade the firmware of the router. Once you upgrade the firmware of the router, reset the router.
On the router you will find a small reset button, hold it down for 30 seconds. release it. wait for 1 minute. Now unplug the power to the router and plug it back in.
Now you will need to reconfigure the router according to the Internet service provider.

DI 524 Frequent Wireless Network Loss


Try changing the channel of your router ex (channel 1-6-11). Since you upgrade the firmware of your router you need to reset it to factory default and reconfigure everything so the new firmware will take effect.

Slow internet connection when connected through router


Would you consider an environmental or systemic reason.

Environmental -- there are many more wireless devicess out there including a class that broadcast on two wireless channels simultaneously. You may be having contention for the radio bandwidth not just from other routers but devices like wireless phones. Consider changing you channel from the probable default of 6 to 1 or 11. If the first change does not work try the second. (also keep your wireless router/access point away from the cell phone base station.)

Systemic -- this is unlikely in your case unless you are getting a strange symptom. There is a belief that networks with hidden SSIDs and WEP or WPA encryption experience interruptions someof considerable duration of service manifesting as disconnections registered by the computer's wireless adapter. Unhiding the SSID has cured these systems.

I hope this helps.
