    Extremely slow internet

    Hey, my old modem died the other day so i decided to buy a wireless modem/router. Every PC connected (all wired, 1 laptop) are getting 16kb/s max, when i used to get around 1mb. My router is a Netgear DG834PN and states:
    DownStream Connection Speed 512 kbps
    UpStream Connection Speed 256 kbps

    I saw someone had a similar problem and did the same test he did, theres are the results

    WEB100 Enabled Statistics:
    Checking for Middleboxes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Done
    running 10s outbound test (client to server) . . . . . 206.49Kb/s
    running 10s inbound test (server to client) . . . . . . 98.85kb/s

    ------ Client System Details ------
    OS data: Name = Windows XP, Architecture = x86, Version = 5.1
    Java data: Vendor = Sun Microsystems Inc., Version = 1.6.0_03

    ------ Web100 Detailed Analysis ------
    Cable modem/DSL/T1 link found.
    Link set to Full Duplex mode
    Information: throughput is limited by other network traffic.
    Good network cable(s) found
    Normal duplex operation found.

    Web100 reports the Round trip time = 800.37 msec; the Packet size = 1380 Bytes; and
    There were 16 packets retransmitted, 25 duplicate acks received, and 32 SACK blocks received
    The connection stalled 1 times due to packet loss
    The connection was idle 2.74 seconds (27.40%) of the time
    This connection is network limited 99.97% of the time.
    Excessive packet loss is impacting your performance, check the auto-negotiate function on your local PC and network switch

    Web100 reports TCP negotiated the optional Performance Settings to:
    RFC 2018 Selective Acknowledgment: ON
    RFC 896 Nagle Algorithm: ON
    RFC 3168 Explicit Congestion Notification: OFF
    RFC 1323 Time Stamping: OFF
    RFC 1323 Window Scaling: OFF
    Information: Network Middlebox is modifying MSS variable
    Server IP addresses are preserved End-to-End
    Information: Network Address Translation (NAT) box is modifying the Client's IP address
    Server says [] but Client says []

    Any idea what's causing this? I'm not much of a technician

    Hi pattje,

    I'm not sure what the cause is but I'm guessing you're having the same issue I'm having. I don't know the cause but I do have work-around for it.

    If I disable my wireless portion of the router then my WIRED connections return back to normal speeds.

    If you're not using your wireless then for now maybe disable it until we do find a real fix. If I do find one I'll post back here as well.

    Check to see if your router firmware is updated set all the network cards to 100full duplex. Login into the router in the wan portion of the router's setup page allow icmp traffic to go though if your router has a wan duplex setting try setting it on 10mbs ,or 100 not auto hope thise helps
