You need to put the router in a clearer line of site and higher up, as walls, windows, cupboards, or anything can cause the connection speed to drop.

Wireless performance problems


hard wired ethernet is much faster than wireless

When your ISP offers you a 1Mb connection, its megaBits not MegaBytes.

So for a rough guide of how MUCH you can download, divide by eight. i.e. 1Mb speed = 128KB of data.

So its normal for you to get 1.0-1.10 mbps download speed for the 10MBps connection that

you have

I have to reset the router almost every day now I have had it for quite a few years TEW_432BRP I don't turn it off at night or my modem just my computer It was working fine until about a week ago and I...


Thank you for using FixYa

You may be fighting an internet connection slowdown or shut down. The modem is looking for that connection and if it falls below a certain speed it shuts off. You might contact your ISP first and see if they are having issue in your area, and you can also test your speed at Speedtest.net. If t he internet is good ,then the modem may be bad and last resort, replace it.


I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

I am using tp link adapter wn650g. i have two problems 1) when i click the tp link icon on the task bar it says authenticating on the link status. 2) although i have a 108 mb card but it always connect...


Hi!

The Authenticating status means that you entered an icorrect network key. The 54Mbps is the wireless speed that your card is getting from the wireless router. That means that your router can only broadcast a maximum speed of 54Mbps. This is usual for Wireless-G routers. Although your card is capable of receiving 108 Mbps, the router doesn't have that speed. The 108 Mbps can be attained if you have a Wireless-N router. To resolve the Authenticating error, try to reconnect to your wireless network using the TP-Link utility. Make sure to enter the corrent wireless network key also called as passphrase. If you are using WEP as security mode, follow the steps below

For Win XP
1. Go to Control Panel, Network Connections
2. Right click on Wireless Network Connection > Properties
3. Click on the Wireless Network Tab and at the bottom you'll see Preferred Networks
4. Highlight the name of your network and click on Properties. Click on Authentication tab then uncheck the option that says "Enable IEEE" something like that. Click OK all the way out
5: Check if that fixes it. You may also try to reboot the computer after that.

One more thing is you can try to change the Channel of your router. You can do that by connecting your laptop hardwired to your router then access router web interface

Netgear WNDR3300 - will connect only on the wireless -g not -n. I cannot see the -n SSID on my laptop. I can see around 10 other networks on -n (from the building that I live on) so it's not the laptop....


your laptop should support n standard... and n and g are the standards... so you wont face any change in ssid...
g communicates at 54mbps, while n communicates at 150+mbps g standard card can communicate with n router at g(54mbps) speed...

Why does my router only put out 54mps and my connection is 100mps


Hello there,

The 54Mbps is your internet speed.

The 100Mbps is your maximum connection speed (meaning from PC to router)

Hope this helps.

Belkin wireless n route only puts out 54mbps


The reasons you only get 54mbps could be: one, your networked PCs don't support N-mode and broadcast in G-mode, so that the router falls back to 54mbps.

Two, the signal strength is too low or the radio noise level is too high to allow N-mode operation at full speed.

So, after checking with the manuals and vendor brochures, you should try connecting the router with a single PC close by - say, ten feet in the same room - and check connection speed. If you can connect at 108 or 125 depending on which N mode you have (N, N+, N1...), the problem is likely to be distance, walls or noisy equipment.

If you still can't connect, double-check the configuration of both router and PC (wifi board "Advanced Properties" in Hardware Management) to check whether N mode is enabled at BOTH ends, especially "Wireless Mode" in the PC.

If it still doesn't work, I'd test it with a Belkin N USB key, for example, just to check that when router and client vendors say, "802.11N", they do indeed refer to the same thing. That's not so cut and dried a thing as one would expect. The N-mode standard was not completely defined from the start, so that many vendors jumped the gun and implemented their own "N-modes" which are often NOT compatible with each other. If you had a US Robotics router and a Yuwasa (and outdated SparkLANs, IIRC) wifi board, you'd discover that you could only attain 11 mbps - and if the USR router was set for "G only" or "G and N" instead of "B, G and N", you would get no connection at all.

Not really a problem - but a question


Remember that router will use only 54Mb of bandwidth which will be shared across all users (as long as router is used as access point). Simple mathematics:
1 user = 54Mbps
2 users = 27Mbps
10 users = 5Mbps

Also please note you might have further probems with channel interferences between users when you have all users in the common area

Also remember that 54Mbps will be only wireless Speed. They all will share common Internet connection

WIRELESS ROUTER


If you mean by the roadrunner that you are connect via a cable, the reason why the signal may fail and stop you from watching streamed video is that wireless is only 54mbps and not the best speed for streaming, but wired streams at 100mbps and is constant speed whereas wireless doesnt give a constant true speed of 54mbps it can reduce considerably.
