Likely the reason for this is the network card. Most network cards are 10/100, and this is typically NOT the bottle neck....100 works well for most users. Routers, and other components auto switch to accomodate the connection speed of the connecting NIC.

You may need to get a higher speed card...

Your routers signal strength is dropping for some reason. If your using a laptop or other portable device move closer to the router and see if the problem persists, if it works ok when you are close to it, I suggest you find another place to put the router. Higher up on a wall is a good place to start, if you are trying to receive a signal through walls try to move the router so you have less walls to got through. Of course another more expensive optiong (assuming your router is ok) is to buy a "repeater" this will repeat the signal and you would place this router closer to your machine. It is possible that something is wrong with your router but I would bet its either placement of the router or perhaps the antenna has folded down and you didn't notice it, (you can also buy antennas that will increase the range somewhat. thanks for your question

How could eliminate the buffering process on my laptop whenever I am listening to you tube music?


Buffering can be reduced greatly by using a faster internet provider. Streaming video from YouTube.com can be effected by multiple circumstances within your network such as bandwidth usage, and speed.
In short a faster internet connection and less activity on your network will reduce the buffering, but will not completely eliminate it.

All seems ok but the speed keeps switching between 1mpbs and 11mbps, so even though all weems to be working fine I am unable to get interne connection. Can you help me?


Hello,
Check with your ISP.
You get those changes when then the signal you are trying to connect to is too far. (signal is weak).
Also, you may try to access a network, the WIFI will connect, but your machine is not allowed (security settings of router)

Hope it helps.

Wireless routers


If your connection without the router is only 30 mbps, the speed with which you will connect will never be greater than 30 mbps. Adding the router adds latency, so yes a router will always slow your internet connection slightly. 11 mbps is still pretty fast considering when you are downloading something from a website the average speed is about 270 kbps. My wireless router connects my laptop at 54 mbps, it is a wireless N router, which is faster than a wireless G. That could be another factor.
