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.

Download problem


Im assuming its wireless ?
The Lenovo Thinkpad is a line of primarily business and performance laptops that have wireless capabilities offered in its standard feature set.
The Thinkpads can have issues with the wireless such as poor connection speed, undetected wireless cards and problems connecting to a wireless network.

Slow Connection

A Thinkpad that can connect to wireless networks or Internet may exhibit slowdown or performance issues when downloading or transferring files.
A few possible fixes for this problem include reconnecting to the wireless network, resetting your router or modem or moving away from any devices that could interfere with your wireless connection.
No Connection
If the Thinkpad cannot connect to the wireless network at all, it could have a software or a hardware issue.
Thinkpad laptops need the wireless receiver button switched to the "on" position in order to pick up any wireless signals.
The operating system should pick up the wireless card automatically but a driver or operating system update could fix any compatibility issues between the OS, the network card and other devices on the computer.
The Thinkpad will be unable to connect to your wireless network if you are attempting to connect to the wrong SSID, network name or are entering the wrong password.
Undetected Adapter
The incorrect installation of device drivers may lead to the wireless adapter or card being undetected by the operating system.
Lenovo's support site, in Resources, contains the specific wireless card drivers used by your Lenovo Thinkpad.
For third party PCMCIA wireless network adapters or wireless USB dongles, the manufacturer of the device should have drivers to install. It is possible that the adapter could have a hardware issue.
Most Thinkpads have the wireless cards integrated into the motherboard, so you would need a complete motherboard or laptop replacement to fix a physical problem.

Internet Explorer Download Problems
While most people use the Internet Explorer Web browser to connect with the computerized world, some are unable to successfully download a file, program or application with it.
There are ways to determine the cause of this problem.
Use the Disk Cleanup

The first avenue to take in determining the cause of download inability is to clean your "C:" drive with your computer's "Disk Cleanup" application.
To find it, click "Start", then follow "Programs," "Accessories" and then "System Tools."
Disk Cleanup will clean your hard drive by eliminating broken file fragments and unnecessary files. These can cause your downloads to be slow and, sometimes, broken.

Antivirus Programs
Another culprit that can prevent downloads are antivirus or antispyware applications that you have installed. Shut those down, then attempt your download again.
If the download completes, then remove the mentioned applications.

Start-Up Programs Sometimes, start-up programs can keep your download from completing.
If you are running Windows Vista, click on Windows Defender, then "Tools" and check "Software Explorer."
Then select "Start-up Programs."
If you find a program that is not necessary to run at start-up, click "Disable."
Then click "Yes" to confirm your choice.

Other Programs
Disable all other programs, then try the download again.
If your download can be completed upon the disabling of these programs, and they are nonessential to your Internet sessions, then keep them disabled via your task manager.

Explorer Add-Ons
Open your "Start" menu, then point your mouse on "Programs."
From the pop-up menu, mouse over "Accessories" and then "System Tools."
Then click on "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)."
If you are not running any add-ons (a page will appear informing you), then this is not an issue with downloading.

Considerations
If none of these allow you to download efficiently, consider trying a new browser such as "Firefox" or "Opera."
Also, consider the possibility that the page from which you are downloading may have an internal error that can cause the download to be aborted.

You can download the manual from here:

Brother mfc-j6710dw
  1. Click 'Downloads-Drivers and Manuals' on the left-hand side.
  2. Choose: 'Multi-Function Centers' and 'MFC-J6710dw'
  3. Click 'Search',then 'View Downloads For MFC-J6710DW '
  4. Click the 'Manual' tab,then 'Search.'
  5. Download the guide(s)you need.You'll probably want the 'Quick Setup Guide.'
I have the MFC-J415 4 in1 Multi-Function Center.First,after initial setup,installing tyhe software,etc,I had to hook it up via ethernet,put in the modem/router's security code,to authorize its access to the network,then the computer had to 'find' it on the wireless network.After that,it said to remove the Ethernet Cable.This was last year,so I've kind of forgotten the instructions,but it was something like that.

Anyway,enjoy!

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.

Wireless printer problem

Configuration using a wireless computer.
  1. If your computer has wireless capability, you will need to change the wireless settings of your computer to Ad-hoc mode so you can directly connect and configure the printer.
  2. Wireless network terms and concepts
    When you configure the wireless network printer, you must ensure that your wireless network printer is
    configured to match the settings of the existing wireless network. This section provides some of the main
    terms and concepts of these settings, which may be helpful when you configure the wireless network printer.
    SSID (Service Set Identifier) and channels
    You need to configure the SSID and a channel to specify the wireless network you want to connect to.
    SSID
    Each wireless network has its own unique network name and it is technically referred to as SSID or ESSID
    (Extended Service Set Identifier). The SSID is a 32-byte or less value and is assigned to the access point.
    The wireless network devices you want to associate to the wireless network should match the access point.
    The access point and wireless network devices regularly send wireless packets (referred to as a beacon)
    which has the SSID information. When your wireless network device receives a beacon, you can identify the
    wireless network that is close enough for the radio waves to reach your device.
    Channels
    Wireless networks use channels. Each wireless channel is on a different frequency. There are up to 14 different channels that can be used when using a wireless network. However, in many countries the number of channels available are restricted. For further information, see Ethernet wireless network on page 165.
    Authentication and encryption Most wireless networks use some kind of security settings. These security settings define the authentication (how the device identifies itself to the network) and encryption (how the data is encrypted as it is sent on the
    network). If you do not correctly specify these options when you are configuring your Brother wireless device, it will not be able to connect to the wireless network. Therefore care must be taken when configuring these options. Please refer to the information below to see which authentication and encryption methods your Brother wireless device supports.
    Authentication methods
    The Brother printer supports the following methods:
    • Open system
    Wireless devices are allowed access the network without any authentication.
    • Shared key
    A secret pre-determined key is shared by all devices that will access the wireless network.
    The Brother printer uses the WEP keys as the pre-determined key.
  3. I will advise you download this network manual and follow the instructions on chapters 3 and 4.

If you tried my solution, then you would have opened all ports, so ports would not be your cause of lag at the moment. The thing is, you do not need to open any ports at all to connect to a game server, you only need to open ports when you BECOME a game server. The lagging will be down to your Internet connection, try to find a gameserver with a ping below 100. Alternatively, look for programs that consume your Internet connection like programs that are used to download MP3s and Applications as these will cause your game to lag heavily. Anyone else on the network may also be downloading or uploading, which will have an effect on your game, too. However it is most definitly not a problem with your ports.
