Wireless LAN low speed

I'm using Realtek RTL8185 54M Wireless LAN Network Adapter. My connection is always very slow however guys who use access on the same connection don't have any problems.

    my realtek RTL8185 slows down almost to a halt. Redefine wireless protocol, it works great for a few hours. Change driver to the same thing, it works for a few hours. Then it hangs again, or slows down significantly. Like yahoo.com takes about 8 minutes to load.

Try plugging the computer directly on your modem/router then check your speed. If the speed improves then big possibility that it's the wireless adapter. Try uninstalling then installing it again. If the speed did not change even though you directly plugged it then it means that your computer has a problem. You may need to optimize your IE or disable any firewall or any programs that uses the internet.

Engenious eoc2611 slow speeds when i changed internet providers


No setting would have any effect on that. If you are downloading the same file from the same site on both wireless and wired, and nothing changed other than your ISP, then there is not much that can be said other than wireless is always questionable, anything in the environment including your neighbors moving furniture, or adding or changing their own wireless network can effect your wireless network. The connection to the wireless access point would not effect the speed of the wireless network. That being said if the tests that you are doing involve different files or downloading from different sites, keep in mind that Comcast limits the speed of connections to sites if they feel it is using too much bandwidth and the owner of the site does not pay fees to Comcast.

Do I have a wireless enabled laptop


If your laptop is running Windows Vista/7/8/8.1, it probably has built-in wireless capability. Open "Device Manager", and expand the "Network Adapters" branch of the tree, to look for the LAN/Ethernet adapter, and possibly, the wireless network adapter.

My laptop had a virus, therefore, my harddrive had to be wipped and reloaded. at this time, i'm unable to sign on to my wirless connection due to not knowing my site key. how do i reset my sitekey?


Use an Ethernet cable to make a "wired" connection from the network-port on your laptop to one of the LAN ports on your wireless router. Then, "login" to the router, and run the "Wireless Network Setup Wizard", to set:
* SSID ("network name")
* encryption-level ('WPA' or better, please)
* password for your network

With those settings, your wireless-adapter should be able to connect.

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

I just switched to TimeWarnerCable/Internet. How do I connect two PC's to the Aris TM602G Modem? Then How do I connect my Laptop? Bob


You connect the Aris to a wireless router with say 4 LAN ports.
You connect the PCs with LAN cables to the LAN ports on the wireless router and install a wireless card in the laptop if it does not have one.
To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Can I use old 2wire router to connect PC to new wireless router?


Hi, You can not use a router to connect a computer to another wireless router. You need to purchase a wireless adapter if you want to connect a computer wirelessly to the network. There seems no other way of doing this.

Let me know if you need any further help regarding this.

Problems setting up Belkin wireless G+ mimo modem router/usb network adapter


It sounds like the router address is wrong or you are not connected to the network.. Guessing you are using Windows XP or Vista. Go to the DOS prompt (http://www.computerhope.com/issues/chdos.htm) then type ipconfig. This will bring up details on your network (see example below).

IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.4
Subnet Mask . . . . . . . . . . . : 255.255.255.0
Default Gateway . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.0.1


You should see default gateway address which is the address of your router ie 192.168.2.1 in your example. If this is not shown you have not connected to your router properly. If it shows a different address use the address shown to try and access your router. HTH

Connecting one network to another?


This is what I would do I would connect the wireless to the internet direct and allow all PC with wireless capabilities to access the net through that wireless irrespective to where I place the wireless router.  Alternative I would link the cable on on the second floor the one you use for the PC to access the net to access the the wireless it should automatic allocate IP addresses as each machine accesses the network.  The speed of that wirless is decreased as each wireless PC comes on line.
