First make sure that you don't have any devices straining the network. Culprits of this could be spyware on one of your user's machines, someone downloading large amounts on your network, and an unsecured network that allows anyone to connect.

A possible way to eliminate the router being the issue would be to disable the wireless access through the router's administrative panel, and then connecting directly to the router with an ethernet cable. Before doing this run a speed test at http://www.speedtest.net/ and then disable the wireless.Try surfing the web to see if there is a noticeable difference, and then run another speed test.

Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem  The major  causes for a slow...


Solution on a slow Internet connections Problem 
The major  causes for a slow Internet connections. A poor-performing connection can be caused by broadband router configuration issues, wireless interference, or any of several other technical issues with your home network. Follow these steps to diagnose slow Internet connections.
 1. Broadband Router Settings
As the centerpiece of a network, a broadband router can be responsible for slow Internet connections if configured improperly. For example, the MTU setting of your router will lead to performance issues if set too high or too low. Ensure your router's settings are all consistent with the manufacturer's and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) recommendations. Carefully record any changes you make to your router's configuration so that you can undo them later if necessary.
 2. Wireless Signal Interference
Wi-Fi and other types of wireless connections may perform poorly due to signal interference, which requires computers to continually resend messages to overcome signal issues. Household appliances and even your neighbors' wireless networks can interfere with your computers. To avoid slow Internet connections due to signal interference, reposition your router for better performance and change your Wi-Fi channel number.
 3. Internet Worms
An Internet worm is a malicious software program that spreads through computer networks. If any of your computers are infected by an Internet worm, they may begin spontaneously generating network traffic without your knowledge, causing your Internet connection to appear slow. Run antivirus software regularly to diagnose and remove these worms from your computers.
 4. Running Background Applications
Some software applications you install on a computer run in the background, quietly consuming network resources. Unlike worms, these are programs designed to do useful work. Peer to peer (P2P) programs in particular can heavily utilize your network and cause connections to appear slow. It's easy to forget these applications are running. Always check computers for any programs running in the background when troubleshooting a slow network.
 5. Faulty Network Equipment
When routers, modems or cables fail, they typically won't support connections. Certain technical glitches in network equipment, however, adversely affect performance even though connections are maintained. To troubleshoot potentially faulty equipment, temporarily re-arrange and re-configure your gear while experimenting with different configurations. Try bypassing the router, swapping cables and changing network adapters to isolate the slow performance to a specific component of the system.
 6. Service Provider Issues
Internet speed ultimately depends on the service provider. Your ISP may change their network's configuration, or suffer technical difficulties, that inadvertently cause your Internet connection to run slow. ISPs may also intentionally install filters or controls on the network that can lower your performance. Don't hesitate to contact your service provider if you suspect they are responsible for a slow Internet connection.

Sounds like the router is not configured properly. I would follow the instructions that came with the router. There is a free program called Network Magic www.networkmagic.com that you can download and run free for 30 days. I have used this program to sortt out network related problems

Compatibility with high speed ADSL2 Broadband


Yes, Linksys WRT160N is 100% compatible with ADSL2. Linksys WRT160N is a Broadband router.

you will not be able to use the linksys WRT160N, as an ADSL2 modem router. you should be using an ADSL2 Modem separately and connect the cable from the modem to the Linksys WRT160N. Hope this clarify the doubt.

Booted off aol


that means either AOL or the poker gameroom server is having a problem.
you can get the website fromt the URL. when you are at the game room.
get out of AOL and just type in the URL, and go direct.
if you still have the same problem, then it is the gameroom server.
not much we can do, expect for you to find a another poker gameroom.

After aol main computer went down they told me to reoncifugre the router i dont know how to do this and as i dont have a home fone line i cnt ring them any help please?


First thing to do is try to connect to the Internet without AOL then sign on to AOL using the broadband connection. When Internet Explorer is open, even without a connection, go to Tools>Internet Options>Connections and check the 'Never Dial a Connection', Click on Advanced and check the 'Automatically Detect Settings' check box. If you are not connecting to the Internet then turn off or unplug the power to the modem, turn it back on and wait 2 minutes. If you don't connect then do the same with the router power. If you still haven't connected using just Internet Explorer, NOT AOL, then talk to your router directly:) Do this by Start>Run>type http://192.168.1.1 (Linksys) or http://192.168.10.1 (Motorola). A logon screen appears. User Name is the manufacturer's name and 'admin' is the password. A web page or dashboard will appear. For a cable modem select DHCP. For DSL select PPPoE. Static addresses can also be entered if you know what they are but probably not. When you see ip addresses listed open Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Chrome or whatever browser flavor you like EXCEPT AOL. Once connected to the Internet then go to AOL. More specifics on your broadband service and hardware makes will get you more specific help if you need. Happy surfing!

AOL Broadband Cable


The following routers are the only models that support the AOL Broadband Cable service. Note: All Linksys routers support AOL DSL connections due to the standard PPPoE login and authentication connection type used with that service. Please be sure to check the version number of your router (which can be found on the underside label). Only the specific models and versions listed here are supported by AOL Cable: * BEFW11S4 * BEFW11S4 v2, v3, and v3.2 * BEFSR41 * BEFSR41 v2 * BEFSR11 * BEFSRU31 * BEFSR81 * BEFSR81 v2 * HPRO200 (Available from AOL only at this time) You must Enable the "AOL Parental Controls" option located in the Security tab of the web-based Setup utility pages of these routers in order to get a connection using AOL Cable. You may access the utility by visiting http://192.168.1.1 in a web browser and by logging in using the router's password (by default, the password is admin).
