Desktop has very poor/slow connection through wireless router

Hello. I have a problem that I am really confused by. A few days ago we hooked up two computers through a wireless router. one is a wireless mac, and the main computer is a desktop, hooked up to the router with an ethernet cable. Both comptuers worked great for a few days, but now, the desktop has a very limited/slow connection to the internet. I can barely connect, but the wireless mac works great still. according to the router and the modem lights, all connections are good. what is wrong? how can I fix tis

This sounds like a spyware/virus problem. Try running the computer in safe mode(With networking) and see if it's any faster. You should also run your Anti-spyware,AV apps to check for problems.

As of a few days ago I cant get the wireless internet to work, the only way it will work is if I hook it in directly and dont go through the wireless router. We have Hughes net and thats working just fine,...


Consider changing the channel to 11, there is often interference with land line cordless phones, (up to one mile away!)
OR, it is possible that you have seen the entire internet....? Giggle...
Here is what you want to set:

Wireless Router settings:


It is usually easiest to run the install wizard, which you can get from the manufacturers' website, usually for free, but be sure to be ready to set the items listed below:


To get access, start your browser, and put 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1, or other address for your unit, into the ADDRESS bar (not search box) of your Internet Browser. Every unit has unique access login and passwords, some are admin with no password, some are admin and admin...seek access information from the website of the manufacturer of your unit. Look under support, downloads, drivers or similar sounding areas.


Things to set:


(Note: Routers are intended to be set by geeks. You have to SAVE EVERY page before you leave it, or the changes will be lost. A geek knows this (apparently). The router gives no protest...just dumps your changes. SAVE OFTEN.)

1. Login password (RECORD THIS!!). Consider taping to bottom of the router. Physical access is typically NOT the security issue.

2. Set a recognizable system ID (descriptive name is easier to find when you need to connect wirelessly).

3. Invoke wireless security of at least WEP.

a. Assign your own access code, 10 digit home or cell #. Consider taping this information to bottom of the router. (Physical access is usually not the security issue.)

4. Check that your router is set to broadcast its' presence.

5. Change the channel of the wireless to 11, and avoid conflict with landline cordless phones. (Big issue, even the neighbors can interrupt).


There are more secure settings available, all the way down to only allowing certain MAC addresses to have access. A MAC address is a digit unique to each and every network card. Like a fingerprint. Most users do not set mac address limits.

Trying to hook up a dlink router using cricket broadband wireless modem. need help?!?!?


Cable-modem (or DSL-modem) --> WAN port on CRICKET

and you _have_ a wireless network, without using the D-Link.

If you really want to get yourself confused:

LAN port on Cricket <--- Ethernet "cross-over" cable ---> WAN port on D-Link router.

Used to have 2 computers working with our wireless router. One was directly hooked up with an ethernet cable, the other was wireless. I'm now trying to have two computers hooked up wireless from network...


Perhaps you turned on MAC address filtering in your router's wireless security settings? It's a pretty good security measure for not allowing unwanted visitors to try hooking up to your wireless internet connection, so it might have been recommended.
Go to your router's configuration and see if MAC filtering is turned on. If it is, you have to add your second computer's wireless card MAC address to the "allowed" list.
Your card's MAC address is sometimes written on it, but it's simpler to go to command prompt and type "ipconfig /all", which will show you details about all the network devices present in the system. Find the wireless card and note the MAC (physical) address. Note: in windows the address has a "-" dash as a separator, whereas normally a ":" colon is used as a separator and this is usually the way you have to enter it.

Well once it is reset, in the configuration section of the router, for setting standard passwords, you can change the password, which is advisable.

Next, for setting up a private wire/wireless network, My way of doing it is by setting the system up to Only allow Certain Mac Address's from the computers that are allowed to access to the internet through yours

To get the MAC Address, Hit Start, Run Program, Command Prompt. Then in Command Prompt, enter this string line: ipconfig /all

From there, it will give you the MAC Address for that computer. It should be a total of 12 Alpha Numeric Digits, Spaced with dashes between every 2. With that, you go into the router and in the Mac Address section for computers allowed to connect to your network, you enter in all the MAC Addresses that are allowed to use your network. Save, then it should refresh the page once that is done. With that, it makes a very hard to break Network that actually doesnt take much time. I was quite surprised 4 years ago to find that this was the easiest way to really set up a near perfect network with no issues

You should add a external wireless adapter. It will have a disk for with a new set of drivers. This will give your computer a new set of eyes.Look for your Network and try to connect. Good luck.
