i have 3-4 second lag when online either just browsing the internet or playing online games.
i use google.com as a kind of benchmark (silly i know but it seems to be a good way to see if connection is slow.)
ill type in google.com and if it loads up right away its good.
sometimes though ill have a 3-4 second lag and then the page will load.
i used to have a usr5084 and teh problem started with this router. if i was to renew the ip through the routers home page speeds would be back to normal for minutes to hours and then the problem would persist. i thought the problem was the router so i bought a lynksis wrt54gs v7
at first it was normal but then the problem started reoocuring. i have spoken to the lynksis ppl several times and ive done everything from changing the mtu to manual and setting it to 1400 -1492 and updating the the latest firmware. these measures again work for awhile and then the problem reoocurs and will nto resolev itself.(on a side note when i reset the router the speeds were back to normal until i uploaded my previous config(by the instructions given to me by the lynksis rep) which was weird..it think)
ive tried hooking up the modem directly to my computer and the connection seems fine and without problems.
is there a reason why a router would slow down a connection or make it lag like that?
so far my cable company(comcast) and lynksis have not been able to provide a solution.
i have 2 desktops running windows xp and a laptop using the wireless part of it. wireless has wep security on channel 6
any help would be appreciated.
