Here are a few suggestions on how to speed connection:

- Move router or pc location if possible. Closer = better connection usually

- Try changing the channel your router is broadcasting on. Sometimes there are slower channels and faster channels in heavy traffic area

- If you have any toolbars in your browser (i.e., yahoo or google), remove them. Those toolbars use up resources that can slow you down.

- Delete cookies and internet files

If these don't work, post a comment on here with your operating systems on laptop and desktop and router type.

Trying to install a linksys wireless B ethernet card. When I installed the wireless network adapter it tells me I need to download a internet controller. Where can I find the internet controller download...


It's not a internet controller, it's the driver.
It's not the driver for an emachine w3653 (which is the pc) it's the driver of the Linksys wireless card. Go here
http://homesupport.cisco.com/en-us/wireless/linksys
go to the page of your card and from there get the Vista driver.

Installed XP to my emachine EL1850G-42W, cant get connect with internet, what's the model of it enthernet controller?


HI.
Your eMachines computer has an integrated network card, not a pci type of card.

It is a 10/100/100 network, so it will work well with both personal and business class internet services at high speeds.

Now, if you wish to go wirelessly to the internet, then you will need to get a wireless network adapter.

Those usually go for around 30-40 dollars at WalMart.

I hopre that this is what you were wanting to know, and good luck to you.

Dell XP 200 Dimension ethernet port


Hello.

I'd suggest testing with another computer and the same Ethernet cable to your modem to see if the results are the same and to narrow down which component is the problem.

Was it always slow with this setup or did something change.

Is the Linksys adapter connected via USB ? That would be slower than an internal adapter.

Try updating the Linksys adapter software - Device Manager - rightclick - update driver.

Hope these suggestions help.

Router greatly slows up/downloads to 25% of direct from modem


I am using a Belkin N1 Vision router with Vonage and i am having no issues with speed at the moment. What OS and connection are you using. If its Vista and Wireless make sure you are using AES encryption and not TKIP as my wireless network was painfully slow using TKIP and lightning with AES and WPA2

I CAN NOT CONNECT TO THE INTERNET ..using Linksy wireless remote


the wireless card installed to your computer is working..as you said you can view all wireless networks...your computer is good too...the only issue is you cant connect to the wireless router...

turn off and unplug the power cable of the Modem
turn off and unplug the power cable the router

wait for 30 seconds
plug in and turn on the modem, wait for all the light turn to solid green ( no blinking lights )

then power on the router

if you saw the wireless icon light turn solid...

go to your computer...right click the wireless icon...select repair

if this doesnt work....reset your internet router by press and hold the reset button behind the router near the power plug (atleast 15 sec)

then connect your PC..the wireless network dont have the WEP key anymore because of the reset..you can reconfigure and put back the WEP key when you get connected.

E machine 4260 is it wi fi???


hi, the most commonly used router is the linksys 54g. I use it myself. It will allow you to hard wire your emachines computer to it like it already is, and is extremely simple to set up the wifi on it for your ps3. This router is available EVERYWHERE and is relatively cheap. Good Luck!

Usb 2.0 ports not working on my emachines T3504


You may need to uninstall your current usb's and let Windows redetect them.

click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM. Click on tab HARDWARE, click on DEVICE MANAGER. Scroll down to UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLER. Delete everything there. Click on ACTION, SCAN FOR HARDWARE CHANGES. It should redetect and you should be good.
