WRT310N v2 Quick Question

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Linksys by Cisco: WRT310Nv2

My router needs to be restarted on a daily basis in order for my computer, (which I also restart daily), to get even close to my maximum download speed. I have cable, and regularly get download speeds of about 2.5 MB/s. However, if I have not restarted my router, my download speeds tend to peak at 1 MB/s.

Is there something I am supposed to have changed, or do I need to set up some way for it to reset itself?

Thank you in advanced for the help.

Sounds like your Internet Connection / ISP is the root of the problem. You running DSL, Cable, Fiber, Fixed Wireless, Etc.?

Typically this symptom is due to your connection automatically downgrading to compensate for errors which happen (typically DSL). Once you Restart, it resets the Provisioned Speed, Errors, then finally downgrades your speed.

If you're running DSL, I'm fairly certain this is your problem.


**NOTE: There are multiple circumstances which can cause this to happen, and I'm just going off what I've come across with customers I service (IT).

I do need to get more info from you regarding Your ISP, Modem, Router (known), ETC to fully diagnose.

Could be the router itself, update to the latest firmware.

Do you have another router you could test your connection with? If your internet slows down even with another router, you can know the problem is on the ISP end and not on your end.

Or he could just plug directly to the Modem.

I'm sorry, I have Comcast Cable, I do not have to restart my modem to fix the issue.

Wall > Modem > Router > Wired LAN

Guess I'll check for firmware updates.

Could be the Router overheating. Or not being able to keep up with the connections. I had a WRT400N and before flashing to dd-wrt had to do the same thing. Realized it couldn't keep up with the amount of connections that I took off it.

With DD-WRT you can get it to reboot once a day at a specified time.
