Fancy new routers SUCK. *Speed problems*

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I may just be crazy, but I ordered a new router in hopes of improving my speed, not slashing it. I have two extra routers out at this moment, and the two newer ones pose the same issue. I have a 20Mpbs connection, and yet with these two new supposedly badass routers, they mercilessly slash my connection in fourths/thirds and attempts to divvy it out to all my devices rather than using the bandwidth efficiently and properly. I can't even load Netflix/Huluplus videos on crap quality mode without it pausing to buffer. (With no other devices on.)

Meanwhile, the older supposedly POS router performs properly, giving me full speed and no latency in games or while watching movies. The router currently connected is a D-Link DIR 825. The other is a netgear crap heap that I stopped using after IP conflict and connection issues. Slow internet is infuriating, and I'd like to get back to the way things used to be. Any suggestions?

EDIT with a little more info; All of the connections on this router are wired, save for one, which is a PS3. That device seems to load videos properly. Does the router have issues transmitting over wired/wireless at the same time? My ISP is also giving me my full line for sure, so it isn't them. Speedtest result;



Taken on the main PC, wired connection. Getting 3 Mbit out of the 20/dl and 1.0/ul that I should see.

A few tips:

1. First start by updating your firmware to the latest version if you haven't already done so and be sure to reset everything to factory defaults.

2. As i understand it you get poor bandwidth both on wireless and on a wired connection. Have you tried disabling QOS (maybe called traffic shaping)?

3. Be sure your modem is plugged into the WAN (Internet) port on the access point and you have no other routing hardware between you and your modem to make it easier to troubleshoot.

Seeing as your older access point works perfectly fine if you can't solve the problem i'd say you have a defect product to be honest. You should at least be able to get your full bandwidth over the switch on ethernet.

Agreed. The fact that the wired hosts are having this issues seems pretty strange to me. I've always experienced the other way around. The wired hosts hogging all the bandwidth, therefore crippling my wireless.
