    DSL speed 75% slower with Wireless router installed than without a router

    Hello All,

    This is my first post to this forum so please be kind.

    I have had an ADSL subscription for the past 2.5 years. I've always had my D-link 524 Wireless router do the PPOE login to my DSL ISP. All of the sudden however, I've noticed a 75% drop in upload and download speed from my DSL line. I called the telephone company and they brought a technician out. As soon as the technician unplugged my router, connected my desktop PC to the DSL modem directly, and then do the PPOE through Windows XP, my speed was at 100%.

    And so, I thought it was a bad router.....

    I then purchased a new Netgear 624 router, but get this.... I still have the same problem.

    I then went to a friends house who has the same broadband service as I do and setup my routers..... both routers worked fine with 100% bandwidth.
    (I am returning the Netgear since there's nothing wrong with my Dlink )

    Any Suggestions?

    PLEASE HELP

    By the way, I opened up the firewalls (let everything in) on both Routers and there was still no change in slow bandwidth).

    Thanks and Best Regards to all

    try this......

    Is there any obstructions between tx and rx ( walls, distance, etc ) ? you probably have transmission " jitter " and the receiver does acknowledgement and polling all the time to get " 1 " in the input. If there is such situation, try to move them closer each other !
