NOW, we have upgraded to a 50mbps connection. (I know, sweet right? lol) BUT we have having serious problems. Apparently, WEP can only handle so much information at a time, so we had no choice but to upgrade to a WPA2 security, and have everything on the network running off of N devices. So, with new adapters to everything and running at 2.4GHz (We've heard that xBox's can disrupt networks running on this frequency, but nothing confirmed), we are getting about 10mbps Down and 12mbps Up. I have never in my life seen my upload faster then my download. And, it being slower then what it was. The weird thing is, that when we direct connect to the router, it get about 60 Mbps up and 15 Mbps down. For some reason, we are getting less down wireless, and more up. But direct connect is running better then ever.
Now, to trouble shoot this, we decided to go with the Netgear router that Comcast suggested would be the best bet. When we went with that one, we are now getting around 15 down and 12 up on all machines. But still 60 up and 13 down when we wire in. 7 customer service agents later, and someone actually coming out to our house, we are having the same issues. And don't get me wrong, we are very computer savvy in this house. I am in college majoring in Digital Media, my roommate is majoring in Computer Networking, and my other roommate is majoring in computer engineering. Granted, we are all only in our first year, or we might have figured this out for our self's, but still. We're not your average users. And yet, we're stumped.
Can anyone tell me why my wireless is running so slow to all machines? I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you. : )
