If I connect my DSL cable directly into my Dell E310 Windows XP computer I get the advertised rates of over 1.5 Mbps download. But when I connect the DSL cable into my router and the router to my PC via an Ethernet cable and port, I get significantly slower speeds. I believe I have the latest firmware. I have also cleared the network cache via Network Connections -> LAN->Properties-> TCP/IP-> Repair.
What else could I do? I feed my ISP is making changes to their software or configuration without informing the users.

1. check the status lights on the router if they flashing you have lost connectivity. 2.unplug or press the reset button on the back of the router hold in. this will reset the router 3. reboot the PC. this will reset the PC. 4.when connected you will have to update the firmware. I looked at the manufacturer's site and this router is discontinued but there are resources to troubleshoot this issue http://www.dlink.com/products/?tab=3&pid=DI-514&rev=DI-514
go to this page above to do further troubleshooting.
1.First, connect the power adapter to the receptor at the back panel of the router. Plug the adapter to the wall socket. 2.Power off your Cable or DSL modem 3.Connect an Ethernet cable to the Ethernet jack located on the Cable / DSL modem. this will take several steps but there isn't enough space here to give all steps. I will give steps in 2 and 3 parts
If you have not unplug the power to the modem and router then turn back on the router first then the modem most reviews forget to tell people turn off everything reboot modem router and computer for the DHCP to work properly the switch on cable modems only place the modem in standby mode you must turn off the power
Do you have Internet connection before you installed the Dlink router? Do you have cable or DSL? If you have DSL make sure you have the username and password from your Internet service provider because you need to enter those information when you run the set up wizard. You need to connect your computer to the LAN port of the router. Turn off computer and router, turn on router first then turn on the computer. Run the set up wizard again.
If you have DSL or cable internet, disconnect the ethernet cable going from the DSL or cable internet modem to the computer. Disconnect the end of that cable that plugs into the modem. Connect an ethernet cable from your cable or DSL modem to the router where it says something like "modem", "internet", or "in". If the router is a wired router, connect the ethernet cable that is still attached to the computer to any open ethernet port on the router.
I think wat ya need to do is completely set it all up again, right from the start.. I enclose a link for a manual & the other one is for the "Driver".
Your "Provider" will have a different setup and address etc... indeed maybe they will have setup software and logon details on their web site, I suggest ya check that.
