Wireless faster than wired?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Need help with my download speed, when I am downloading from my computer I am getting 100-500 Kb/s Max. I thought there could be a problem with my computer or the cable I was using so I switched my laptop on downloaded a random file on wireless and was downloading at 1.6Mb/s. I then switched to my cable disconnected from the wireless access point redownloaded the same file and bam straight back down to 200kb/s, I switched the cable and the same thing still happens.

Please give me some directions as to what could be causing this; thanks in advance.

Router: Wireless-N ADSL2+ Modem router Model DGN2000.

I thought I should upgrade the firmware on my router but couldn't find any downloads, but hopefully you guys can figure out a simple solution that is causing me this trouble.

thanks

Try a different Cable and port?
Double check your link speed & Duplex options?

Do a speedtest from both the laptop and the PC 3 times and note down the results.


Do this at;

www.speedtest.net

Just pick the server closest to you.

Hey bud, try this, use a different ethernet cable that is shielded CAT 5e or 6a if possible, and move your router if it is currently near your modem.

See if that helps.

I had the same problem as my wireless speeds were blazing and my wired connection would randomly choke during a download, and slow down. All I did was replace the cable and move the router a bit, also if you have a wireless home phone nearby that also interferes because it could be running on the same 2.4GHz band.

part right, the 4 things that may be the cause is either faulty cable, port is dieing, speed duplex mixmatch, or EMI. Wireless telephones, microwaves so forth and so on will interrupt wireless signals not wired.
