Yes. Wired will be faster and setup is the same. You turn off the wireless on the laptop, and plug in the ethernet cable. The settings are probably defaulted to obtain an IP address automaticlly and that should work.

The wirelss will continue to work as it did before for the other machines.

Wireless speed is 60% slower than when hardwired directly . Router is only about 2 years old. Do I need to buy a new router


Hello,
This router's wired connections run at 100mbps, with little latency. Your wireless connection is susceptible to radio interference, and signal quality to how far you are from the router. If your laptop doesn't support the Xtreme G, then you won't see the wireless 108mbps, but rather only 54mbps or lower, depending on your signal quality.

The wireless G spec is now out dated and quite slow. If you have a pretty new laptop with wireless N then I recommend you get a wireless N router. The wireless signal on a wireless N router typically sees speeds of 300mbps and sometimes higher depending on the model of your laptops wireless card and the model of wireless router. You will ONLY see a speed increase if your devices support the wireless N spec. It will probably never be faster then wired connections, but wireless N does a good job of trying.

When I have my router hooked directly to my computer it works fine. When I hook it up so the kids can use their laptops, the speed is very slow.


I think the first thing you should try to verify if the signal is strenght enough, because if it is not so the speed will be slow too.

Wireless computers work fine, wired desktop extremely slow


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.

Internet connection


try to update the router's firmware to the latest one, if conection is still dropping try lowering the MTU size(by default its set to auto) to 1492, 1480, 1472, 1450 check which MTU size will make you connection stable.

Slow connection


Your slow connection could be affected by poor location wireless router (therefore poor signal strength), electrical interference, or even someone else with a wireless router transmitting on the same channel as your wireless router.
Try relocating your router away from solid walls, and/or move your computer or router to another location.
If your connection speed varies, could be electrical interference with appliance/s in your house, turn off all appliances, test your internet speed connecting then turn on one appliance at a time to determine which appliance is at fault (could have a faulty capacitor in the appliance)
