Question about Acer Aspire 3004WLCi Notebook
I just got Verizon FiOS installed and it works fine as long as I'm close to the router, but the further I move away, the slower internet sites load, sometimes they don't load at all.
My speed is always somewhere between 24 and 54 mbps
I've an Acer Aspire 3004WLCi - 802.11b/g wireless LAN
my comuter was set to 802.11b, but since the modem runs on 54g I changed it to 54g Performance - it didn't help
Is this a problem with FiOS or with my computer? How can I fix it?
You may not be interpreting the LED correctly. The Link LED goes on to indicate a physical connection (if the Link LED is out, the cable is damaged or disconnected), but the 10/100 LED only illuminates when there’s a 100Mbps connection. The LED will remain off when the connection is only 10Mbps. Here’s how to quickly determine the speed of your connection. If the 10/100LED is off, there’s a slow connection. If the LED is on, there’s a fast connection.
A fast (100Mbps) network connection requires that both ends of the connection support 100Mbps communication. So, if the 10/100 LED on your hub is dark, chances are that your PC’s network adapter (or NIC [network interface card]) is only operating in the 10Mbps mode. Check the NIC in your Device Manager Network Adapter entry and look for any 10/100 designation. An older 10Mbps NIC may need to be upgraded for 100Mbps operation. If it’s a 10/100 NIC, refer to the PC’s documentation and check the NIC settings to make sure it’s not locked in the 10Mbps mode. Set the NIC to a mixed or 10/100 mode so that it can adapt automatically to establish the best possible connection.
