linksys. wireless router (wrt54g) NEED HELP

18 replies 2 views Edited Jan 1, 2007
bought the router yesterday and it seems to work fine (got online and downloaded some stuff with ps3 2 rooms across...) but when i download stuff from my computer which is connected to the router through ethernet it seems that it works, or is slow, or in some cases wont even start a download (in firefox in the download screen it will keep saying "starting..."     . yet when directly plug in my cable modem to my computer everything works handy dandy... what do i need to do, to download stuff at normal speeds?

Wireless isn't very good when it comes to speed. If it really bothers you, just plug in your cable modem directly every time you go on the computer.
I personally need a wireless router to go online with my PS2. The only reason I'm not getting a wired router is because my PS2 is incredibly far from my computer.

Hmm I have the same router also, but don't know how to fix your problem, sorry. Try going to the site and ask the live customer service.

I heard the wrt54g is a really good wireless router. Maybe it's something in your firewall? (stupid idea, but worth a shot)

False. If you are using g wireless which is at 54 mbps, the transfer rate is well above the speed of cable or DSL (which is average around 3-5 mbps). It might add a couple of miliseconds onto the latency if anything.

Go into the router configuration page (http://192.168.1.1) and go into Applications & Gaming > DMZ and enable it to the computers IP.
