Blazer Speed

I am currently surfing the net wirelessly from my lifedrive, and was wondering how I could speed up browsing. When I have read a page and want to go back to the previous page, if I click on the green back arrow, Blazer reloads the entire page, making it quite slow to browse all the threads. On my pc, the previous page is stored somewhere in the temporary memory until I clear the cache - usually on exiting my browser. Is the any way that I can get Blazer to do something similar and thus stop uneccessary downloading of a new page every time?

Blazer does have a cache, but I'm not sure exactly how it uses it. I did an experiment in an attempt to find out how much of a page it caches, but I didn't learn a lot. I went to a page, then jumped to another, then turned WiFi off. When I hit the "Back" button, the LifeDrive refused to open the page without me reactivating WiFi. Still, I can tell the cache is working. When I go to a site with lots of graphics, the first page opens kind of slowly. However, when I go to other pages on that site that have the same graphics, pages load more quickly. So, apparently at least some parts of a page go into a cache, but you can't view it entirely from the cache. Also, the delay in opening pages is often not the downloading of a page, but the rendering of it once it is downloaded. The cache can't help you there.

How do I get my wireless internet connection to work? I live in a rural area and NETGEAR is the only option with at least 3 bars. Where do I find my network security key? I'm a definite rookie here....

If you live in the rural area and you have a broadband connection/modem connected to the Netgear wireless router, then I suggest you look at my instruction on how to configure the wireless router with encryption (security) - click on this link for instructions. :-

Hi,

There are couple of troubleshootig steps which needs to be performed inorder to help get a web page load faster.

Go to Tools/options/ and delete the history, cached pages, cookies, password etc. Might want to ignore favourites.

Also type temp in run command line and then delete the files from the folder. This helps to increase the processing speed as well as the browsing speed of the accer.

This works with IE 6/7/8 though.

Thanks

Slow or no wireless speed, connection says excellent

Your router may be toast but here are a couple of things to try:
Please remember, I'm guessing here...

Before restoring to factory defaults, make sure you can get to the config pages using the rj45 (wired) ports. Do a speed test with a wired connection at http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

1. try removing all security. No WEP or WPK. Also, use no mac address filtering. See if it speeds up. Go back to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ and try speed testing the wireless portion of your router..

2. If it has automatic channel selection, this may be acting up. So manually select channels. Then do speed tests at the web site (or any speed test web site of your chosing). You may find a screaming fast channel.

3. If this fails to help, use the reset to factory default button. Try setting up the router with NO security first and do speed tests. Use automatic channel selection first, do speed tests, and if all else fails, you can try manually selecting channels again. If the router works well, you might want to set up security again and retest.

4. If all this fails, buy yourself a new wireless 802.11N - (N1) router. They are screamin' fast and have better range.

What is the maximum speed

The speed of that router is 100 mbps (wired) and 54 mbps (wireless). If you have a 1 mbps line, that router is more than sufficient. Your speed will change simply because someone is using the internet connection. Downloading, uploading, surfing, chatting, listening to internet radio, etc. Make sure no one is on, then test it to see what speed you get. Go to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and select the server nearest to you. It is a very good speed tester.
Good Luck!

Wireless speed

The answer to this is yes and no.

Wireless speeds are not up to gigabit on any router that I know of. You may be able to have a wired Gigabit connection on a wireless router, but not wireless. But this would not speed up your Internet browsing (wireless or not).

A new router would probably improve your Internet browsing speed, but perhaps not for the reason you may think.

1, Your line speed has probably increased since you purchased your current router and a new router would probably deal with it better.
2, You may be able to put a new wireless card in your PC that would allow you to use G or some of the other faster wireless connection methods.

Ultimately your Internet browsing speed is governed by the line speed, the contention in your area, the general speed of the Internet. Changing your router will just help make your internal network traffic more efficient.

Here is a Good Guide from Microsoft that I would follow BEFORE spending any money.

http://tech.msn.com/howto/articlepcw.aspx?cp-documentid=6555722

Basically what it says is 1, ensure you have a clean connection to the Internet, 2, update all your firmware so that every thing is as good as it can be.

Read the article, do what it says and then consider if you need to upgrade the router. At the end of the day your Internet speed will never be better than the speed that you have paid for. If you pay for 2Mb and http://www.speedtest.net says you are getting 1.9Mb then you are doing well and the best you can improve things is by .1Mb. Maybe you need to get a faster connection.

If you pay for 2Mb and you are only getting 1Mb (and you have done all the recomendations) Maybe you need a new router.

Hope this helps
