Slow Belkin N300
I picked up a new Belkin N300 router at our local walmart for about $40. I've had Belkin routers before so i figured it would be a good deal considering we just browse the net & watch videos occasionally, but that's the extent of it.
Got the router home, set up in a heartbeat like promised, but i'm only getting around .30Mbps compared to about 6.5mbps when hard-wiring into either the router directly or cable modem - both according to Comcast (our internet provider) and speedtest.net.
Figured i had a lemon, so i took it back a couple days later (could not find my receipt of course, so i had to settle for a swap of the same thing) & got a new one. I get it home, sets up like no tomorrow, but i'm still getting the same slow wireless results.
With this being the 2nd one to do this, i'm thinking maybe there is a setting i'm not seeing that needs to be changed or adjusted. I've run tuneup 2012 to "optimize" my settings & computer, but it hasn't helped my connection speed. However, i do get excellent reception all over the house & the connection never drops.
I've spent some time searching the forum, but have come up blank on this.. Anyone have any suggestions as to what i could do to remedy the situation? Any help is great appreciated!
FYI- I am running a newer acer aspire laptop w/ windows 7 & have no problems getting 5mbps on wireless at our office with roadrunner internet.
Does any other wireless device run slow on the internet when connected to the router? If you do have another wireless device besides your laptop, go ahead and run multiple internet speed tests on it. See if you're getting the same low speeds. Try to pick the city/server closest to you, it will give you more accurate results. Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test
I would go ahead and uninstall TuneUp 2012. I've seen first hand how badly it can slow down systems and cause internet connectivity issues. Use an application like Advanced System Care 5. It doesn't cause issues like TuneUp does, and it works very well.
Is the firmware on your Belkin router up to date? Check Belkin's site and see if they have a newer version out for your router:
