Wireless router causes wired connection to become erratic

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Things were working fine since I bought the wireless router a couple months back, but recently my wired download speeds have been erratic.

My internet speeds are 30mbps down and 5mbps up.

With the router speeds are: .42mpbs - 15mpbs
Without the router speeds are: 31mbps

Is there a way I can remedy this issue? Could the router be on its way out? I have a lot of devices that are connect wireless so a wireless router is must. All of these tests were done with all wireless devices disconnected using Speedtest.net

System specs:
Asus Maximus V Gene with Intel 82579V NIC with latest drivers.

Wireless Router:
Netgear WNDR4300 Dual Band Gigabit Router.

what were you using before you bought Netgear WNDR4300? do you have a modem-router supplied by your ISP?

I wasn't using anything. The cable modem was connected directly to my desktop.

in that case, you will have to configure the modem to run in "bridged" mode and set the router to connect to the internet via PPPoE (instead of automatic).

1. if your modem has automatic setup, choose bridge mode when setting up. if not, google the model/brand of the modem and your ISP for specific instructions.
2. to connect via PPPoE, refer to page 113 of this manual.
