Internet feels laggy/ choppy plz help - Page 2

post #11 of 24
Hey man 6 years ago I used internet explorer and didn't know what control panel was thumb.gif



Do any of your fellow residents or you, use any sort of P2P? Y'know for Linux distros and all that stuff. (A lot of times that's what all the blocked incoming traffic is, bad peers.) Or even netflix? Hulu? Amazon vids, etc. Do you happen to know your internet speeds that you pay for? speedtest.net if you do not know.

Online console gaming?

That's not the white/black router with like 6 antennas is it?

What do you have for options under 'Tools' and 'Advanced' ?

Can you indentify which part of the webpage causes the freezing?

Do you use adblocking software? (Disable it for OCN btw tongue.gif)

Here's what we've got X'd out so far.

Browser
OS
New cat 6 cable.
You. (your computer)
NIC


It's starting to look like your family is eating all the bandwidth and you're getting the short end of the stick because you're not using nearly as much traffic and the router is aware of that. If this is the case we're gonna do something super dirty and legit biggrin.gif You're gonna throttle everyone but yourself. Mwuhaha. devil-smiley-019.gif But no one will notice and it will be fair, because you'll allow enough bandwidth to stream movies and junk.

*On a side note, you said you were busy studying for exams and the like, if this is an issue that needs to be regarded later, do not be afraid to PM me later about getting this figured out. Just FYI smile.gif

Nope leave em', on rare occasion can actually cause certain wifi devices to go haywire (drops a bunch when connected to it, uber slow out of the blue, etc). On top of that, 3 antennas on the router is a major e-peen boost. lachen.gif Then yes you had the router I imagined. It's a boss. Remember that. Do other pages freeze? Have you ran www.speedtest.net yet?

No way man, I love networking. I love talking about it, and I love fixing it.

Let's see what GameFuel is about/ has to offer smile.gif More screen shots pleaseeee. If anything goes wrong with a router just reset. Those things can take so much crap, even the Linksys WRT54GS v2 was able to be un-bricked via specific timing with a hard reset. (Made you feel like a hacker when you did it haha) Normally only update your firmware if it is necessary or includes a new feature you need. It wouldn't hurt to check the changelog if there is maybe some minor TCP/UDP optimizations to the firmware though.

I have found your issue smile.gif

414

The randomly named devices are smart phones, they are sucking a lot of bandwidth from your router. The unknown device is more than likely a laptop with a spoofed MAC address so he doesn't get caught. Judging by the use of bandwidth the smart phones are using they are streaming(music, movies, whatever it may be) or doing lots of app downloading.

WAN(Wide Area Network) IP is unsafe to display, LAN (Local Area Network, your router in a sense is the headquarters to all the internet in your house) IP's you could plaster all over the internet and no one can do anything about it. Cause they probably have the same IP's as well.

Now you have 3 options and I am going to briefly explain what they do.

MAC address - Media Access Control address these are hard coded and hard wired onto your devices, they will never change (unless you get crafty and replace the network chips in the device, whole different story) and they used to identify the device itself. You can actually look up MAC addresses and get minor information about the manufacturer of the hardware. You have two options with this, and this is the SAFEST most peace of mind method. You can either have a MAC allow list (much much easier to do and keep track of) or a MAC deny list (PITA, wouldn't even bother.) With a MAC allow list, ONLY devices with the MAC addresses that you enter will be aloud. Nothing else. This means anytime a lady friend heart.gif cousin, buddy, whatever comes over and they request WiFi access you have to login into your router and add their MAC address to the allow list. ~note safest possible. Just extra labor.

WiFi encryption. WEP, don't even bother, there's even extremely simple tuts on getting the WEP key across the air without anyone noticing. WPA, as good as it gets. WPA-PSK Greatly encrypted, very secure. WPA-AES, super secure as well, large arguments whether one is more secure or not. WPA-PSK+AES, about as secure as wifi encryption gets, although large majority of devices struggle to support it. There's WPA2 and all that jazz but irrelevant to the task at hand. ~Extremely secure, can cause headaches.

SSID - Service Set Identifier/Identification (name of WiFi). All you do is change the SSID (those who visited before. They would just type it in unaware and have access again.) You can hide this, this works in an area where nobody knows nothin' about networking (like my area) by far the easiest semi-secure protection job. Disable the broadcast and it won't show up to those who are searching for Access Points. Easily scanned for with other software. Which is why I feel the spoofed MAC address guy would find it. ~easy, semi safe, easily found to the more knowledgeable. I'd know, I've done it before myself...redface.gif


You can do all 3 (if you are that paranoid and wish to go through tons of labor), you can mix match, , do two of three. Whatever you'd like. Let me know which one is your favorite flavor and then we can continue on how to set it up properly.

Regarding the sames, BRW00225858B4CF is actually a wireless printer we set up. The Android was my brothers smart phone which I made sure he disabled wifi on it thumb.gif

I dont really have anyone that comes over and wants to use my internet, but I do have quite a bit of devices that are connected. Office PC, my PC, my laptop, brothers laptop, office laptop, ipad, itouch (2), (2) wireless printers

Seeing that Im not really tech savy with networking, would MAC addresses or SSID be hard paths to take? Which of the three options would you recommend?

Both are extremely easy, if you wish to take the time to obtain every MAC addresses from all your devices, I would highly suggest that. And then disable the SSID broadcast.(optional, or skip it if you're feelin' lazy) You'd be safe as it gets.

Do a speedtest @ speedtest.net & pingtest.net

Also do a tracert to google in cmd.
"tracert www.google.com"

Also you can try setting your DNS to 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 which is Google's Public DNS Servers.
