My Linksys router blows

Recommended Posts

I got a Wireless-G Broadband Router with SpeedBooster from Linksys WRT54GSV4, with Firmware Version : v1.05.2.

and let me tell you, it blows.  When i use it wirelessly, my speed drops down to 200kB/s instead of the usual 1000+kB/s connection that i have direct connected.  What can i do to fix this problem?  The router is only about 4- 5 feet away with the atennaes pointing away from the computer, tried toward it and in every other direction.  What can i do to fix thsi wireless problem or am i stuck with the worse wireless router ever created?

Keep in mind that wireless connection won't be the same as if you were to connect directly. I have the same router and it delivers great performance, have you tried to re-set it as if you just got it and set it up again. Also, try to get the latest firmware for wireless adaptor that's in your PC (unless of course it's a Wireles Enabled Notebook). I've encountered the same problem once or twice with a friends computer with the same router, I just re-set everything and configured it from scratch.....hope this helps.

remember also that since ur using wireless.....disturbance from cordless etc can also effect the speed. Try using channel 1,6,11 in ur router, and then do speed test again.

Offcourse....head over to linksys site for latest firmware update 1st and then anything else.
