Hi folks. The internet has slowed down to dial-up speed since we started using a wireless modem.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Try whipping the power connection out of the modem/router for two minutes and then plug it back in again.  Sometimes for no apparent reason they need to be reset and that speeds you up again.

We found that and had some terrible times - if yer house has walls with chicken wire in them - like the older style it tends to hang the signal. I wanna try the idea that is in the posting newt put in the main section about tech tips .. putting something metal behind it so he signal is forced forward towards you rather than loosing some of it in a circle signal  Undecided

Ok, that didn't work! I should mention that the signal is apparently exellent! The speed however is 50 Mbps which is about a quarter of what I used to get before wireless. Any other ideas? I will surf the net for ideas meanwhile.

Where are you checking your speed?

How about using a speed test with both methods and verify the speed.

It could be a port clash.

But first up... is it your boardband which is slowing down or it is just your wireless network which is slow?

Also - post your Router Make and Model - I'll be able to help more with those details.

I check the connection icon on the taskbar. Haven't done the speed test for a while. I'll try it out tonight. Thanks...

The slowing down is from the wireless as speed goes up to normal once I switch to the older modem. The router is a D-Link one but need to check at home for the Model. I'll be really annoyed if I was sold a router that only allows dial-up speeds!

Becareful when checking the speeds -

See Mr is beside me on his lappy - hes wired to the hardwire - direct into the broadband and is on 100mps - Im on the wireless and Im moving tween 35 and 24 mps.

But even we know thats not true.  Wink

If I run a speed check they appear really good.

Back to satelite when we go back to the beach .. yee hah ... zoom zoom!

Mine is noticeably slow on wireless. Similar to Dial-up on a good day. Has to be the modem.
Tempted to upgrade to a faster plan but our use of the net at home is only for entertainment. The net at work is turbo-charged and satisfactory for what HerMajesty and I do.

If your broadband remains fast but your wireless is slow - I can fix it, but I gotta know the model of D-Link router you have.

Sorry for taking a while Dazza. Wireless signal seems to be unstable today (was ok yesterday! modem is a week old!).

Couldn't open that page either 'page couldn't be displayed'...you weren't expecting that by any chance were u?

No worries matey - me working anyway...


Ok - do you have a link or shortcut to the routers configuration home page?
That address should have opened that up for you... but things might be a little different - depending on how you installed it.


Basically - your router host's a website which is what we are trying to find. In there you can configure it and I suspect that your wireless speed is set to some low level... what I'm aiming at (in this first step) is to confirm that speed. But while we are in there we will also check your IP address which your router assigned you (not your Internet IP address, but your LAN IP address - the one in between your computer and your router) and make sure that's nothing strange.


At a pinch I could get in there myself and have a poke around - but that would mean you letting me know passwords and user names and I'm not really comfy with that since we don't know really each other.

Your router is working - be rest assured about that, and there's no wireless router that I know of on the open market which is only capable of dial up speeds. I think you have a little config problem which hopefully we can nail with relative ease like this....

Let me know if you can find your routuers config page!

This whole thing is starting to annoy me! The signal has been erratic until I brought the modem/router into the same room as the computer.   :klnx

As for the webinterface configuration thingy, I was given a different site and I was able to access it. The ID and password are already saved so couldn't give you the password even if I wanted to! Also, you shouldn't have to do that...I will bug the store I purchased the goods from if all fails.

Will appreciate it if you could post some simple diagnostics to run through the webinterface but only if not too much trouble.

Thanks heaps. And as a birthday boy, shouldn't you be off work and enjoying what is left of the day!?  :!b

It took us a while to get our wireless working to what we thought was suitable.

So take your time and be methodical -  :kuku

Hey - the username "admin" and the password "admin" should get you in there.

If not - then look for a reset button on the router - hopefully that will reset it back to factory settings and then admin should work.
