Speed is no better....Wondering about the DNS Domain_not_set.invalid. Also why I have no IPv 6 connection. I do have IP v6 address and info on my Vista desktop that's connection to wireless.

OK. Turn off the active interface and enable the one you turned off before. Then try the speed test again. Instead of doing IPCONFIG do IPCONFIG /ALL

I don't think the Connection-specific DNS Suffix is a problem. Don't have my Win 7 with me on this trip but on XP this is blank. If I remember correctly you can set your company's domain in there and it will tack that on for you.

I never use IPv6 and usually turn it off. It's not going to cause a lack of throughput.

I disabled the Local Area Connection and tested my wireless connection and the speed was just a bit faster than the Local area connection. Posted Image

I thought the ethernet connection was supposed to be considerably faster! Sigh...No joy..

Ethernet Integrated 10/100 Base-T networking interface. I can't remember if I had my Vista on this router or not. I'll hook up my laptop to the router and get back to you later this afternoon, I have to go out. I am staying with this. Please let me know what results you want when I do this so I can post them when I have it done...TY so much!

I connected my ASUS laptop to my modem/router with another ethernet cable I had. However I didn't disconnect my desktop. I had a connection for a bit and even went into my router page but then lost internet connection on desktop and laptop. I restarted laptop only to find I have no network connection at all. I'm going to try to reconfigure my connection on the laptop.

The updated drivers didn't improve internet connection or speed. I uninstalled ralink WLAN driver and rebooted so that Windows installed the driver. I'll get the laptop reconfigured and hook it up only to router and report back..

Update....Here is latest speed test which is better. I'm connected via lan with wireless disabled on desktop!
http://www.speedtest.../2522288851.png

Asus laptop is back with a wireless connection. I will be busy until this afternoon. One question I'll look for when I get back and dig in again. I have 4 ports on the back of the modem/router but I think only 2 ports for local area connections. Anyway, my question is because of the gateway config should I not have both the desktop and laptop hardwired at the same time to check out the connection on the ASUS laptop and was that the cause for loss of connection?

Shouldn't hurt to have both PCs on at the same time unless one has a manually added address and it is the same as the other then you have an address conflict and it should tell you in a pop up and in the event logs.

Other possibility is that both PCs have the exact same name. Again that should cause an error.

For best speed test results tho we want just one PC on line at a time. This would rule out some worm on the other eating up bandwidth.

Some ISPs are oversubscribed and have too many customers using up too much bandwidth. If this is the case you will see it by doing speed tests at different times. Late at night or early in the morning the results will improve.

I had a few minutes this evening and things seem to be a lot better as far as my connection. My connection slows down early evening for sure on during the week.

I'll be checking my hardwire on laptop in the morning...I just didn't have time to try this today.

Have you tried the new router they sent you?

This really looks like you have an oversubscribed ISP or a connection that is just too far away to work at the speed it should.

Can you take the laptop to a friend's house (preferably one in a different neighborhood or with a different ISP) and see if you get the same speed on the laptop that he does on his PC?

I have the new router connected....I've tested my speed on 3 sites and they vary so much I don't which one to believe...Speedtest.net 6.66 dl .64 upload. Speakeasy.net 10.85 dl .52 upload. Speed.test.tds 9.22 dl and .63 upload. The new driver for my Local area connect has improved my speed. Realtek RTL8105E PCIe FE Family Controller driver dl http://www.mediatek..../01_windows.php in case it helps someone else out there as it wasn't easy to find!

I'll try at my cousins either tomorrow and if not then the next couple of weeks. He's 20 miles away and my mom is moving in her new house and I'll be going to see it. Cousins on the way...Thank you for your help.

I suppose it's possible that the anti-virus may be slowing things down for the tests. Try running the tests with the anti-virus paused. (The test basically downloads a file and sees how long it takes but if the antivirus is looking at the file as it downloads then it could cause the times to vary.)
