Thread: Very Slow over wireless connection!

  1. #1

    Angry Very Slow over wireless connection!

    Hi, I have two computers wired to a Linksys Wireless router. They both work fine and are fast. The laptop is wireless and is extremely slow. I have Comcast's Gold Package, 4000/384. The laptop is only downloading about 130 kbs whereas the two desktops wired are downloading at 500+ kbs. Anything I can do to fix this? The laptop is running windows xp and is brand new.

    TCP options string = 020405b401010402
    MTU = 1500
    MTU is fully optimized for broadband.
    MSS = 1460
    Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which equals MSS.

    Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 17520
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 0 bits
    Unscaled Receive Window = 17520

    RWIN is a multiple of MSS
    Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
    513920 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 8)
    256960 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
    128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
    64240 (MSS x 44)
    bandwidth * delay product (Note this is not a speed test):

    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 700.8 kbps (87.6 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 280.32 kbps (35.04 KBytes/s) @ 500ms
    Consider increasing your RWIN value to optimize TCP/IP for broadband.
    MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON
    Time to live left = 115 hops

    TTL value is ok.
    Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF
    Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON
    IP type of service field (RFC1349) = 00000000

    any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you very much.

    leave the modem off the router off for about 5 mins then turn modem on then router also for the wireless ones make sure no cordless phones are on that is same frequnacy of the router

    also try this if you haven't alredy and make sure router firmware is up to date
    Comptia a+ n+

    Ok, I will bite... You cannot assign anything to the wireless client cards or USB interface that will not have any effect. Wireless devices DO NOT operate like their wired equivalents.

    If you have really slow connection, what client card / USB are you using and the specific Wireless Linksys router. I can then help you with that.

    Note: There is a glitch in the new firmware for the WRT300N and WRT350N routers from Linksys, that causes extremely low signal levels and bad or no connectivity to occur randomly. This is a problem with matching up the signalling from the WMP cards and the WRT access point routers.

    If you have this problem let me know, there is a way around this.
