Reduce the MTU settings on the router. You will need to open the set up page of the router. On the set up page , you will find the MTU set to Auto. Change it to manual and change the size to 1400. save the settings. Also upgrade the firmware of the router. Do you have any computer connected to the router ? If not then connect the computer to the router. download the firmware of the router. Upgrade the firmware. After upgrading the firmware , you will need to reset the router. Once you reset the router, it will lose all the settings and you will need to reconfigure the router. Click here step by step instructions
On your old desktop, go to Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN Settings make sure no check on boxes there. Click OK and Apply. Click on General tab, click on Delete File (delete all offline content), Clear History and Delete Cookies. Click Apply and OK.
Wired connections are faster than equivalently wireless connections (from/to the same node) and so your experienced is quite normal.
Additional nodes divide the original bandwidth and denigrate the performance, which is why one tries to maximize the original bandwidth (speed in MHz) of the connection to the gateway.
You can maximize your experience by having critical systems wired to the router, and this also provides greater security than any encryption (which is another brake on your speed) necessary for a wifi connection.
Make sure you have the fastest possible wifi card in your portable devices to maximize your speed.
I would start by upgrading the firmware on the router... even if its the same version just do it again something in the software could be corrupt. Now make sure your getting the firmware for the exact router model #. After upgrade before you plug the router in reset the modem... then re-run the wireless network wizard. Do all of this and let me know if your wireless works now and we'll move to the next step.
-- who is your internet service provider -- what is the operating system of your computer? -- is this working fine before or is this a brand new router
you may try this and see if this help solve your problem. make sure your computer is directly connected to the router
Step 1: Shutdown the computer. Step 2: reset the router while power on then Unplug the router’s power cable. Step 3: Unplug the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for 30 seconds. Step 4: Plug in the Broadband modem’s power cable and wait for its lights to appear stable. Step 5: Plug in the router's power cable once the modem’s lights appear stable. Step 6: Power on the computer on and configure the router settings Step 7: test the Internet connection.
if this still didnot work, upgrade the firmware of your router
