Re: E2500 Slow Throughput

When using the router are doing the speedtest wirelessly connected to the router or wired? What is the firmware version of the router? What is the brand and make of the wireless adapter installed on the computer? Who is your Internet Service Provider?

Re: E2500 Slow Throughput

I have upgraded from a Linksys WRT54G2 to the E2500 11N dual band router.  Wired connections to the E2500 are very slow.  If I connect via wireless, download speeds attain 25mps.  Wired speed are 6mps.  I have ready other posts and don't see a solution.  Any help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,

gip

Re: E2500 Slow Throughput

To isolate the concern, connect your computer directly to the modem and do a speedtest. Compare the speed when connecting wired to the router. If the modem’s connection is a lot better, what you can do is to reset and reconfigure the router. Also make sure the router’s firmware is up to date.
