This router is known to sometimes be slow.

You could try resetting to factory defaults, once the router is up and running, use a toothpick or equivalent, hold the reset button in for 35 seconds. Let it reboot, should take 2 or 3 minutes, then see what your speeds look like.

If that fixed your problem, then you can start turning features back on, one by one, and test speeds after each feature change. QOS settings can cause slowdowns, I'd try them last.

SOURCE: Internet speed is very slow with NET GEAR WGR614 router

MTU Adjustment

1. Access the web-based utility of the router.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

Note: If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you have run the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords. If you cannot remember the password, you need to reset the router and run the Setup CD to reconfigure it.

2. Adjust the MTU setting.

a. Click on the WAN Setup under Advanced tab.
b. Lower down the MTU size to 1492, 1400, 1358 or 1300.
c. Click on the Apply button.

Note: You may verify from your ISP the recommended MTU size you can use.

SOURCE: 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.

So, If you have internet connection speed problem with your wireless try with the following steps,
1.)Reset the wireless router by using the power switch on it or by unplugging it and plugging it back in.

I have several wireless electronics like a wii, xbox, ipod touches and blue rays i was wondering what wireless router do i need to run most of these thing without slowing down my connection all the time


The connectivity speed of the router depends on the range of the device u are using.
Go for a router which supports more wireless range.
The internet speed depends on your internet connection if all the devices are in range.

With the router hooked up getting on the internet is slow. hooked to cable one direct it's o.k.


Your Wireless speed is all down to the quality of the router and wireless card, and where you are in relation to the router.
Hooking up direct is always going to be faster.
You could experiment with the position of the router in the room.
Check your speeds wired and wireless, use www.speedtest.net.
You could buy a better antenna for the router

Internet extremely slow on one network, fine on the other


Not knowing if this relates directly as i am not from Australia but have you checked with the ISP.

The phone line providing the internet access may be damaged in some way or require calibration to reduce line noise (which can cause slow speeds).

Alternatively, have you got a usage limit that you may have reached. ISPs have the ability to throttle back your connection speed.

Thanks

The internet speeds to the wireless unit keeps going really slow if you reboot everything it works for a while thens slows to a crawl again


Ask you Internet Service Provider regarding this problem. Definitely, it is not a problem from your end like your software or router. It in a slow internet connection from your ISP.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
