    Router Problems

    I'm with telus and i've been having troubles behind my router for a while. It's super slow. First i tried switching routers cause i figured it was prolli just a defect when the truth was, it wasn't a defect. I don't know whats wrong. All the computer on my network seem to be experiencing this problem. But the moment I take my computer off the router and directly into the modem, it jacks up the speed back to normal. I don't know whats wrong. I cloned MAC address, released renewed IP and nothing seems to make it better. Please help, thx.

    How many computers on your network?

    If you did a broad sweep IP ping on your network, what are the
    results? Is there one or two computers that have a higher ping?

    What if you were the only computer on the router, does it have the
    same speed?

    Is someone running a filesharing app?

    So many questions, so little time....

    It seems that someone or something is hogging your bandwidth
    for one reason or another. Whether there is a virus or file sharing
    or something is misconfigured and broadcasts something at full-bore
    all the time....something.

    Below is a link to a program I like called angry IP scanner. it is simple
    and does the trick.

    I would scan your entire subnet. The results on a LAN should be <1
    for all unless you are all seperated but in the same building
    they shuold all be <10.

    I never really read this forum so PM me if you need any further help.
