Question about D-Link AirPlus DI-524 Wireless Router

1 Answer

90% speed degradation

The speed degradation with the wireless is not 10%, it is 90%! (from 7.83Mbps to 0.73Mbps). In the mean time I understand that this may have to do with the wireless router supporting 11G protocol whilst my laptop side is 11B?
You mentioned dwitching off QOS packet formatting on the router side (the format that prevents freeloaders on my wireless), but I don't know:
a) how to do that
b) what the security consequences are
Can you help?

The G vs B will play a huge role in speed.

To turn off the QOS feature usually consists of logging into your router or opening the management software that came with the router.

After looking up more information for your brand, I would check your d-link utility and possibly try switching channels (If your using 6 goto 11) try to at least move 5 channels from where it is already set. Also make sure power mode is set to "Continuous access mode"

Since your using a b card with a g router, my next suggestion would be if at all possible try connecting to your router with a g card (Possibly a friend or neighbor could help out) and compare the speeds. I am more then certain you'll see the speed you are wanting with the g card.

Can I configure my d-link DESS 1008D speed in to 10mbps manualy?

the 10/100 Mbps feature in the switch means it will auto-negotiate the speed with the other end, so in order to make it run at 10 Mbps, degrade the computer's speed to 10 Mbps and the switch will automatically follow. You cannot set it on the switch directly since its not a managed one.

good luck

I have a 20 mbps adsl line, but whene i connect the 3com 3crwe554g72 router wireless i only get 2 mbps , why?

This issue is most likely due to the quality of the signal between the PC and the wireless. If there is a lot of interference or the wireless devices are far from the 3COM, then the signal will be less then optimal. Sinnal quality will degrade quickly when going through walls floors and celings as the density and metal contained in these structures block wireless signals. Interference can come form other wireless devices, cordless phones, RC toys and some wireless mice and keyboards.

The other factor to consider is the type of wireless being used. Wireless like all technology get better as time goes by. As new technology comes out it is categorized and classified. For Wifi there are currently 5 separate specifications for wireless. They are:
802.11 (Specless) - approx 1997 era devices. operates at 1 to 2 Mbps
802.11 a - approx 1999. operates at 6Mbps.
802.11 b - approx 1999. operates at 11 Mbps.
802.11 g - approx 2003. operates at 54 Mbps
802.11 n - October 2009. operates at 100+ Mbps

If you have an old wireless device it will work with the 3COM but only at the speed it was designed for.

You can always check your speed by connecting directly to the 3COM with ethernet cable and going to

Two clocks are set at 6am one clock gains 30 seconds every hour and the second clock loses 1 minute every hour. at what time will the faster clock be 30 minutes ahead of the second clock

Compute the difference in clock-speeds, namely 90 seconds per hour.
Convert the units of time: 30 minutes becomes 180 seconds.
So, divide 180 by 90 to get '2', namely 2 hours after the 6 o'clock "start" time, which makes it 8 PM.

P.S. There is at least one error in the above solution. If you truly understand the solution, make the necessary correction, and submit the corrected "homework" to your teacher.

Low connection speed

I understand that you are getting low wireless speed through the adapter. I would suggest you to upgrade the drivers for the adapter. If the issue persists, then please change the channel on the wireless router.

Hope this helps.

Ladder orientation barcode printing bad resolution needs correcting

Try slowing down the speed of the printer. Faster speeds degrade the quality of your print. Try printing your serial (ladder) barcodes at 2-4 inches per sec. It should improve the quality of your format.

Speed degardation

Routers, firewalls, and other network equipment usually cause a 10% overhead degrade in service. You may also want to check to see if the router has any QOS/Packet Shaping features for the wireless side, If so turn them off. Some routers do this to prevent un-wanted wireless intruders from hogging bandwidth.
