Guys, I’ve done everything that I can think of.
I’ve been having wireless download speed issue for a few weeks now. I was using a Linksys WRT54GS router that was working great for a long time but then, almost all of a sudden, my wireless speeds have drastically dropped to a snails crawl.
When I directly connected to my router via Ethernet speeds are blazing so I was thinking that since this is an older router, maybe the antennae are messed up, so I went a bout a new router, a Linksys E1200 Wireless N router.
No problem setting it up. Now, just so you know, there’s no problem with my Comcast modem. I’m able to plug directly into it and get massive download speeds. When I connect my new router to my modem and then connect to my new router via Ethernet, I get blazing download speeds.
But on the wireless, even with the new router? Slow, slow, slow!
I use µTorrent for downloading files and I regularly get 2.5mbps or greater download speeds when I’m connected via Ethernet. I used to get and least 1mbps download speeds via wireless, even with the old Linksys router but those speeds are nowhere to be found now, not even with the new router!!
The router is still in the same spot as it has always been! I have 2 laptops and 2 iPads and nothing has changed with them – the laptops have the same wireless network cards and all drivers are up to date.
I’m really stumped. I have no idea what else I can do. I’m almost to the point of setting up Ethernet ports in all of my rooms so that I can get the download speeds that I pay for in every room. This makes no sense to me.
Any advice and help you can give will be greatly appreciated!
