Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router

1 Answer

1 computer downloading causes network lag.

My brother just added a new computer to the wireless network, and while simple downloads have never cause a problem for me before, his youtube streams will cause my ping to skyrocket to over 1000ms. Other computers on the network will not cause this to happen, but if it makes any difference, my computer is the furthest from the router and his is less than 20 feet away from mine.

Thanks in advance for any help.

It is a well known fact that the more computers you have on a network, and the more they are doing the slower everything gets.

Although that sounds a bit excessively high for a ping it is very possible that because you are farther from the router that your data is colliding with his. thus slowing down things even further. it might help to spread things out a little if at all possible, and see what that will do for you.

Rj 45 wall connection in my room for internet. i want to go wireless mac,ipad xbox etc .can i use belkin n150


You can assuming all your devices support wireless. (Black XBox does). You may only get B or G wireless unless your devices support the N mode wireless. I will warn you that wireless on XBox can cause issues of lag while playing heavy network usage games on Xbox Live such as FPS's like Call of Duty. With the N150 you should also have wired ports in the back which would still let you connect wired devices.

What is providing internet to the RJ-45 Jack in your wall. If it is a college they may have port security turned on in their network which will not allow other Hubs/Routers to be plugged into the network.

How do I ad another computer to my router


Since you are adding one, it means you do have a computer that is already working with this router. It means you router is been configured already. So if you need to add another one, its very simple.

For wired connection:
-just get an Ethernet cable long enough to reach your computer then connect the ends on the available Ethernet port located on the back of the router and the other end should be connected on the Ethernet port on your computer.

For wireless connection:
Look for a wireless icon on the bottom part of your screen near the clock. For Windows Vista and Windows 7 just click it and will show you the wireless networks that are available. For Windows XP, right click the icon and select "View available wirleess networks". As soon as you see the list of wireless networks, select yours and click "Connect". If your network is secure type the security key that been setup on the wireless router, if not secured it should connect immediately.

I have forgotten my security key for connecting to the internet with my netgear wireless router


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin)and password by default the password is 1234 unless it has already been changed
from the left-hand navigation menu of the router manager,select wireles set up>wireless settings
from the center screen,select your encrytion type from under the Security Options heading
if the wireless network passphrase is visible,review it and use it to log on devices onto your network.
If it is not visible you can change your wireless passphrase but changing your passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection
Connect your computer to the router using an Ethernet Cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking apply.
If you cannot log into your router:Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.

hope this helps

Need download for other computer to be added on


To add a second computer, take an Ethernet cable, and connect it to one of the LAN ports on the router, and to the network-port on the second computer;
there's no need for any "download" to make this work.

If the second computer has a wireless adapter, then click 'View Available Wireless Networks', and click to connect to the network.

There are a number of things that can affect speed, but if you are certain that NOTHING about your set up has changed than the next best guess is that something has changed at the local hub of your ISP.

If your internet provider is a cable company this usually means that bad weather has caused something to go wrong, or too many nodes [individual end users] have added been added to the neighborhoods HUB.

Bad weather can cause corrosion over time on fittings which add "noise" to the system and cause the DB [strength of the signal to noise ratio] to degrade. Adding too many nodes on a single HUB can cause the bandwidth supplied by that HUB to become insufficient to support full speed internet access when all those people are online at the same time.

So if you are absolutely sure nothing has changed about your set up. You've checked your lap and desk tops, network, etc, and its all working fine as far as you can tell; the next step is to contact your cable, FiOS or DSL provider to check your connection to the local HUB and make sure to ask them to check to see if the number of nodes on that HUB are within their specifications for providing the connection speeds stipulated in your agreement with them.

Adding a wired computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you are adding a desktop or any other device to the router which will always be connected to the router with the Ethernet cable, then in this case you don't need to do anything.
You can just connect the Ethernet cable between the router and the computer and it should work.
If you are not able to go online even when it is connected properly then check IP address of the computer.

Adding a wireless computer or device to the network.

If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

WLAN having consistant high latency with frequent all-out fail


I would suggest borrowing a different known working wireless adapter, and test trying that. Or test using a wired connection, just to prove it is the adapter. Perhaps the wireless adapter you are using is flaky.

Frequent disconnects


If the Xbox is connected wirelessly through a computer

ie. Bridge?

Then the problem would be with Windows XP, the Operating system scans every 2min's or so for new networks and at this point you will notice a "lag" or disconnect if it is bad enough.

XP: your going to have to turn off the Wireless service via msconfig.

Vista: Download WLAN Optimizer, easy fix there...
