I have a D-link DSL-G604T, upgraded with the latest firmwear and two computers are connected to it. One is a desktop computer connected with a network cable and the other is a LG LW60 laptop connected through wireless.

For some reason the desktop gets a steady internet speed and the laptop sometimes has trouble even loading the home page in firefox. If the desktop is unpluged the connection to the laptop is OK so I don't think it could be the laptop settings.

Just wondering if there could be some setting on the desktop that could be hogging the net speed or something I could change on the laptop to improve the speed.

It may be they are both trying to assign thierselves the same IP address. Try putting a unique IP address on both the laptop and the PC.

Hello drakken,

As per your question, goto Start --> Run --> type CMD --> press OK -->type IPCONFIG /ALL --> copy down the following details:
IP Address
Subnet Mask
Default Gateway
(2) DNS Servers


Goto Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Network Connections --> Right click on your Local Area Connection --> Select Properties --> Click on Internet Protocl (TCP/IP) once and press the Properties button --> Select the option Use the following IP Address: --> Enter in the IP Address, Subnet Mask and Default Gateway --> Now select Use the following DNS Servers --> Enter in the two DNS Servers (or only one if you didn't have two) --> Press OK.

If anything goes wrong, then return your settings to Obtain an IP Address automatically and Obtain DNS Server address automatically.

Also, please try this Speed Test on both computers (when both are connected, and also when only the wireless is connected).

Let us know the results.

- Dan

You don't need to be in America :whistling:

Not sure if you still want to work on this, but if so --
Goto Start, Run, type CMD, press 'OK' and then perform a Trace route by typing: tracert google.com
Once the trace has completed, please post the results here by right-clicking on the window, selecting 'Select All', and then pressing the Enter key; post the results here.

Also: Goto Start, Run, type CMD and press 'OK' - now type: PATHPING google.com -- please copy and paste the results by right-clicking on the Command Prompt window, selecting 'Select All', and then pressing the Enter key. Please post the results here.

Your laptop's connection is extremely erratic -- it is jumping from low pings to extremely high pings for no apparent reason. Not to mention the fact that it dropped all of the packets on the first hop.

Have you tried running the laptop in Safe Mode with Networking, to see if the problem still occurs?

How to restart into Safe Mode with Networking
Please restart your computer and as soon as it starts booting up again continuously tap F8. A menu should come up where you will be given the option to enter Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Command Prompt and Safe Mode with Networking (along with a few others). Please tap the down key until you reach Safe Mode with Networking, and then press the Enter key. Your computer should now boot into Safe Mode with Networking.

Does your ISP support two concurrent connections? Does it require you to purchase two seperate accounts?

this is the same test as before but in safe mode with networking if that helps any. Although it was still pretty slow loading pages. From my ISP my broadband package came with a multi port modem so i figure it would support this. The modem has changed since then but i've had the problem with both modems.
