Yes upgrading the firmware will fix the problem but before...that..scan your system for spyware...you can try free anti-spyware tools like spybot search and destroy or Ad-aware..Often spyware and malware affect your network utilization drastically...also let me know the configuration settings of your router...mis-configuration may also cause the problem..

There may be a web filter or monitoring option enabled on the router... check your running configuration to see if you have any of these filters or monitors enabled

Running slow


Is it running slow on both wired and wireless connections? how about if a PC is wired directly to the modem? That will eliminate the router as the issue (slow internet could be your modem or the connection itself).

If you're sure it's the router (wireless and wired) then upgrading the firmware would be first step. You can download the latest firmware from linksys.com and get it installed via the web interface of the router (probably found by going to http://192.168.1.1).

If a firmware update doesn't do it you can change your DNS servers from being automatically detected from your ISP to public ones. This may help web pages load faster. You can enter them also using the web interface. Set the Primary and Secondary DNS address to the numbers below (they are from OpenDNS.com).

Primary 208.67.222.222
Secondary 208.67.220.220

Slow, or no, web page loads on Verizon DSL w/Westall 6100 modem


hi,
if your ie8 has messed with your settings try restoring your system back using system restore to a date when everything was fine, but little caution here you will loose every new settings/software installed that you did after the restore date, so restore it to a date that had those settings and software but internet was working fine
to restore your system to a back date
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.

and pick up the date and follow the instructions

Scroll Issue


This is a very interesting problem.. Normally I would say the a router could not cause this kind of problem, but if the page is still loading, it could be possible.

When this happens, has the page finished loading all ready? The little circle of dots spinning in the top right of the browser if you are running firefox, will tell you if the page is still loading. There will be a similar icon for Internet Explorer too.

If the page has already loaded completely, then there is no way a router could cause the slow down. If you used the install CD that came with the router (no necessary by the way) then it could have loaded some "free" software on PC and this software is now slowing the browser down.

Fast Page Loads Slow Downloads


it really depends on how far you are from your Router. The farther you go, the weaker the signal gets resulting in slower speeds. Slower speeds will not affect web page load times (they are tiny parts of data) but will definately affect download speeds. You need to be as close to the router as possible or get perfect range. You can put the router at higher elevation in the room to get a better range to start with. Let me know if this works for you.

Slow downloads


Always update the router firmware ONLY if you have problems.

Run a DSL test to see if your actually getting the full speed inside the network.

www.DSLREPORTS.com <<--i believe but you can do a google search for broadband test.

I know with comcast you can unplug the modem for lengthy time, plug it back in so it pulls the most updated version off of comcast's server.
