I recently purchased a Netgear N600 Wireless router connected to my Comcast Motorola Surfboard SB5120 modem. I have a Comcast plan of 20 Mbps but through www.speedtest.net am consistently getting 8 Mbps...


I think its the modem that you need to upgrade. Comcast is already running on DOCSIS 3.0 system. The SB5120 modem that you have is a DOCSIS 2.0 modem. You may need to have your modem replaced with a DOCSIS 3.0 modem like the Motorola SB6120.

Are you trying to connect the laptops via wireless? Is that where you are seeing 75 mbps? I am assuming you are, and 75 mbps is really not how fast your internet connection is. Rather, that is how fast you are transferring data from your laptop to the wireless router and back. Generally speaking, this should be a way faster connection than your internet is running at. Chances are your internet connection speed is 10 to 20 mbps, which is good and fast.

It is easy to get the two confused, but basically a wireless connection of 75 mbps is an uber fast connection to your wireless router, and only if your actual internet connection was faster than that 75 mbps would you see any slowness due to that.

Wireless N routers are capable of delivering up to 100 mbps connection speeds, but again that is only from your device to the router. The router then goes to your modem and out through the internet. Chances are that connection is not 100 mbps because of interference, which can be walls, other wireless devices, etc.

One way to test your actual internet connection speed is to go to www.speedtest.net and click on one of the links on the map. This will tell you how many mbps you get to the internet.

There is no problem with your router.In fact most ISP provider sell MBPS but really does not mean you going to get 10MBPs.In your area you will share that MBPs with others.

I am only getting 34-54 Mbps with my Linksys. I have a wireless adapter in my computer. It will go lower, but never than higher than 54 Mbps? I know i can get 100mbps because my Xbox does. Help me out!


Wireless Ethernet (802.11a or b or g) does not get the bandwidth you would get through a cabled connection. My guess is that you have an 802.11g network card in your computer and 54 Mbps is the top theoretical speed for that type of Wireless adapter. Cabled connections will give you the theoretical throughput of 100 Mbps. Also, since this Linksys device is not a Wireless access point but simply a switch, your computer doesn't actually connect to it. Most likely you are connecting to your cable or DSL modem. Most of these have a wireless radio built in.

54 mbps PCI Adapter Card limits my connection to 2 mbps


Wi if is the slowest form of connection and is shared with other devices. If you want good bandwidth you need to connect via ethernet cable directly to the router.
Examlpe... wi if 4 meg shared, Ethernet 100 meg..
good luck !

I have 6mbps speed but my speed get too slow on my modem. so how can i improve my speed.


is that a phone modem

this are conventional speeds expected:
  • Conventional Ethernet can transmit data at rates from 10 Mbps up to 100 Mbps.
  • Phoneline networking specification, HomePNA 2.0, transmits data at rates up to 10 Mbps.
  • One type of powerline networking technology promises data speeds up to 189 Mbps.
  • Wireless Ethernet has data transmission rates up to 11 Mbps.
  • HomeRF goes up to 1.6 Mbps.
  • Bluetooth goes up to 3 Mbps.
the speeds noted above are theoretical as other factors WILL affect your connection speed and WILL LIKELY lower the connection speed between your device and the ISP.

for comparison check on www.speedtest.net and compare other isp, changing isp is your more concret solution.

Can only get a 10 meg when connected via cable to srx 200


The speed of your wireless adapter maybe up to 54 Mpbs only, check the wireless adapter that you have if it is 802.11 G its set to 54 Mbps only however if your using 802.11 N the speed of the adapter is around 300 mbps of connection.

There's a settings on the router that you can lock WAN port speed to around 10/100/1000

Note: To have a 300 Mbps of connection you should set the wireless settings of the router to WPA2 and AES with bandwidth of auto 20/40

How fast can the data go?


The speed of the cable modem is only one part of the equation. There are a combination of factors starting with how fast your PC can handle IP traffic, then how fast your PC to cable modem interface is, then how fast the cable modem system runs and how much congestion there is on the cable network, then how big a pipe there is at the head end to the rest of the Internet. Different models of PCs and Macs are able to handle IP traffic at varying speeds. Very few can handle it at 30 Mbps. Ethernet (10baseT) is the most popular cable modem interface standard for the PC. This automatically limits the speed of the connection to under 10 Mbps even if the cable modem can receive at 30 Mbps. Most Local Area Networks use 10baseT Ethernet, and although they are 10 Mbps networks, it takes a LOT longer than one second to transmit 10 megabits (or 1.25 megabytes) of data from one terminal to another. Cable modems on the same node share bandwidth, which means that congestion is created when too many people are on simultaneously. One user downloading large graphic or video files can use a significant portion of shared bandwidth, slowing down access for other users in the same neighborhood. Most independent Internet Service Providers today connect to the Internet using a single 1.5 Mbps "T1" telephone line. All of their subscribers share that 1.5 Mbps pipeline. Cable head-ends connecting to the Internet backbone using a T1 limit their subscribers to an absolute maximum of 1.5 Mbps. To create the appearance of faster network access, service companies plan to store or "cache" frequently requested web sites and Usenet newsgroups on a server at their head-end. Storing data locally will remove some of the bottleneck at the backbone connection. How fast can they go? In a perfect world (or lab) they can receive data at speeds up to 30 Mbps. In the real world, with cost conscious cable companies running the systems, the speed will probably fall to about 1.5 Mbps.
