Hi,

A possible solution that could address both the slow Vista and the static IP:

  • Pls go to Start, Control Panel, Network Connections;
  • Right click on your Local Area networking and click on properties;
  • Highlight Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) and then click on the Properties button;
  • Tick on "Use the following IP address;
  • Enter IP address > 192.168.1.5;
  • Enter Subnet mask > 255.255.255.0;
  • Default gateway > 192.168.1.1;
  • The DNS would be what your ISP has set;
  • OK, close.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    The above is for a wired network. The posted "Right click on your Local Area networking and click on properties;" should be "Right click on your Wireless Network Connection and click on Properties;"

    Cheers.

    Appreciate the postback/comment.

    Speed could also be affected by the antivirus/internet security used in the Vista machine. try to temporarily disable the antivirus/internet security and determine if there is a significant change in speed.

    There are a number of online DSL speed test, pls try doing a Google and select a test server nearest your current location.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Wireless connections are slower, than using the cable. You may have a defective wireless router, or you PC is defective.
1. now in your home are you close to the router, and do you have strong signal strength.
i would take your PC to wi fi spot and see if its faster, if so, i would guess you wireless router is defective.

Can you get other signals that are not your own?

If yes:
Reset the router back to factory default settings by using the tiny
reset button on the back/bottom.

If no:
Make sure your wireless card is turned on. Make sure you can see it in device manager.

No comunication between router and cable modem.


this is because your PC is picking up the WRTG54G which is an internal signal booster (internal gateway) to the ROUTER ITSELF.
WRTG54G is in the middle like an interpreter.
The WRTG54G is not connect to ROUTER>
thus the laptop is not connected, like sprinkler attached to the end of a hose but the HOSE not attached to the water faucet.
turn OFF laptop. RESET WRTG54G (there is a small hole you can stick a pencil in there and hold down for 15 long seconds; UNPLUG power.
PLUB back in and hit auto config button.
let WRT54G pick up a new IP ADDRESS from router. once that is done turn on laptop and it should pick up a new signal with new IP address assigned to it by the WRTG54G.

Issue with router and ethernet cables


I imagine you reset/unplugged all of your routers, switches, and computers, starting with your modem, then router, and then each system?

There is a setup disk that need to be used to program your router with the ISP settings, passwords, and protocols for port forwarding, etc. I imagine you tried that.

Did you try all of your cables to make sure they weren't defective?

If you tried these,and the problem persists, the issue is a defective router. By default, the unit should transmit a wireless signal, and be ready to act as a routing switch for your other systems.

Router won't log into it's IP address online


Is your desktop getting an ip address from the router?
You said that you reset the router, do you mean turning it on and off or pressing the reset button?
