just installed new router. still running pretty slow


Recommended Posts

I had a very outdated router which gave me only up to 11mbps wirelessly.. just installed new linksys g range router. says i get 54mbps. did a speed and i seem to be running just as slow as before. do i need to either purchase a new network card or usb attachment so it runs faster. or even a new modem?

My home computer is getting these speeds, obviously being hooked directly up to a coax is making it faster but can i come any closer to these speeds with my labby.

Please post your ISP package, what OS your using, and the basic PC specks.

Yes you should be getting much more then that, wireless or not. You may have settings incorrect in your router, and or the machine.

I am unsure of your lingo but its just a normal modem router setup, internet through modem than to internet port on router by cat .5 cable, than to home computer using another .5 cable.

poe ( Power Over Ethernet )  Is the bridge ( wireless router ) plugged in to a power source, or is it plugged in w/ the ethernet cable ?

there could be some settings that i might need to change, although i am not to familiar with doing so.  the router is also a cheap version of the N router, even though my labby doesn't get n. I changed the router settings to G only.  What else does one normally do to configure the router.

" N " routers are normally backwards compatible, I would not set anything to " only " . Not likely, but that could be one of your problems. You might want to check and see what the network settings are as far as " full /half duplex " .
