Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router

1 Answer

Good Morning: I am using AT&T as my ISP with the 18MBPS package, my problem is that I am getting between 16 & 17 MBPS download and 1.5 avg MBPS upload on my desktop computer whice is fine, on my other laptops (two) I can only get between 1.6 & 3.4 MBPS MBPS download and 0.4 & 0.7 MBPS upload, this has been the case for over two years, I have had the AT&T tecks out to my house and they verified those speeds, they checked all wiring (both in the house and outside) and found no problems, they checked that the connection from the distribution panel to my house and found no problems, they replaced the 2wire 3800HGV-B router four times with the same results, their conclusion was that my desktop was creating a bottleneck and not allowing sufficent bandwidth to the other computers, I have since rebuilt my desktop using a Gigabyte EX58-Extream motherboard, Intel 950 i7 CPU with 12 MB of memory and Windows 7 ultimate as the operatig system, as of today I am still having the reduced speed to my other computers both wirelessly and wired, any help would be appreciated. Thank You

If you are running an ad-hoc network, which creates some issues when one computer has to share its connection with the rest of the computers on the network. Assuming this is the method you described, you are likely experiencing a bottleneck because the computer sharing the internet is also running security software involving a firewall.

You would be much better off if you would simply connect all computers via wired or wireless directly to a router and not require internet access to be dependent on one computer.

If you would like more details, let me know.

I have 6mbps speed but my speed get too slow on my modem. so how can i improve my speed.


is that a phone modem

this are conventional speeds expected:
  • Conventional Ethernet can transmit data at rates from 10 Mbps up to 100 Mbps.
  • Phoneline networking specification, HomePNA 2.0, transmits data at rates up to 10 Mbps.
  • One type of powerline networking technology promises data speeds up to 189 Mbps.
  • Wireless Ethernet has data transmission rates up to 11 Mbps.
  • HomeRF goes up to 1.6 Mbps.
  • Bluetooth goes up to 3 Mbps.
the speeds noted above are theoretical as other factors WILL affect your connection speed and WILL LIKELY lower the connection speed between your device and the ISP.

for comparison check on www.speedtest.net and compare other isp, changing isp is your more concret solution.

Do I need a Norton-type security for my laptop, or is AVG sufficient ?


Hi,
AVG is more than sufficient for a home computer.
Norton takes quite a lot of system resources and slows computers down dramatically. AVG on the other hand uses 2/3rds less resources than Norton and is just as good.


Reagrds.

Very Very LOW Download speeds....!!!


1. Internet Service Providers (whoever you have your broadband connection with) are more and more limiting your download speeds via torrent to 20 or 30k. This is by design of your ISP and there is nothing much that you can do about and the reason they do it is to prevent people from downloading copyrighted materials.

2. If you have a legitimate reason for using torrent technology to download 1GB+ files often, then contact your ISP about it and tell them you are trying to download legal files of whatever it is you are trying to download and see if they will fix it. Probably not, however. In fact, they probably won't even admit to using sandvine to limit your download speeds. I know for one Comcast is doing this very thing.
