Question about Belkin (F5D8231-4) Wireless Router (F5D82314)
I have a Belkin router hard wired to 2 computers. I installed the router on one computer which has no connection problems. The 2nd computer is also wired into the router with a long ethernet cable. This computer is having extremely slow response times and the browser freezes up a good amount of time--the router seems to be working fine since computer #1 functions fine while computer #2 is having issues. I did not install any hardware on the 2nd computer --just hooked up the cable.
I restarted the router and computer and things work OK for a while-but the problem quickly returns-- any ideas? Is the long cable the issue? Did I need to install the router on the 2nd computer as well?
Thanks for your time!
Remember to have space in between several computers. Wave interference could be causing this.
Also the computer #2 could be having issues.
It could have malware viruses or trojans slowing incoming connections to the computer.
It could be another program that uses the internet on that computer and hogs all the bandwidth.
Also you didn't mention is your router password protected? Take this stuff into consideration.

Thank you for the clarification. I believe that 50 feet long is prone to interference that is why your computer freezes. You can try using a shorter cable to and check if the same problem occurs. This could be a problem with interference or a problem with the second computer. By trying a shorter cable, you would be able to define which is the problem.
