Low-speed Internet with wired connection to E4200

I have a HP Pavilion p6347c AMD Athlon II X 4 630 2.80 GHz, 64 Bit, Windows 7 SP1 WITH 16 GB of Ram, using Comcast high speed Internet.

It works very well and I had no problem with my Pavilion until I replaced my old router G with a LinkSys E4200 (state-of-the-art, the top page of the router line N).  All the features work well, except that when I use Firefox 7.0 or Internet Explorer 9.0, the connection time is very very very slow when my computer is connected to my router with an Ethernet cable.  The problem disappears when I log - in using the same Ethernet cable - directly into the modem high speed; Then, the loading speeds are fast as lightning.  When I return to the router via a wired connection, even - page very very very slow post.

I've already spent about 8 sessions with LinkSys on the phone and chat, and it turns out that the router is not the problem (according to LinkSys).  They advised that I need to contact the manufacturer of the computer, or people who can respond to Windows 7 support issues.  Someone at - it ideas?  Maybe something I can change in the settings of the firewall, network, computer security options settings?

I connected my HP laptop running WINDOWS VISTA on the same Ethernet cable and disabled the wireless.  The speed of the wired connection is quick as a Flash - no problem at all.

Then why my desktop Windows 7 SP1 computer not offer me the same speed?  Whenever I need to do important online work, I have to unplug my Ethernet cable from the router and plug directly on the modem to get faster speeds.  I then reconnect to the router once completed, so that users without wire and devices on my network work.  It's very frustrating.

Help!  I am at a loss to understand why this computer has not faster to the Internet when wired to the router.  Is - this Windows 7?  There are some options that I need to change?  Someone at - he heard talk about this and you offer solutions?  Appreciate any assistance.  Thank you.  / Jacques novel /- [email protected]

P.S. Customer LinkSys was no contribution to this issue.  I hope that some tech "warned" this reading will say AH-HAH and offer a viable solution.


On a hunch, I selected the reset 'Factory Defaults' option in the Administration, after having updated the firmware. Something must have been damaged during the first attempt to install the router.


To reset the default settings, you must have the original Setup disk and re-install using the same router name and the password.


When this was done, the Ethernet connection worked perfectly.  Hope it will be useful to all having the same problem.

  • I am unable to connect to the Linksys WRT54G Router with wired connection to Office XP.

    My two laptops (XP and a Win7) will be connected to the router wireless and wired (ethernet). When it is plugged directly into the DSL modem, the Office connects and works very well. This problem started when I had to replace the DSL modem.

    I inherited this problem for my elderly mother... and it all started because they gave me the router password wrong, who now works (router has been reset) on two laptops, but when connected, the Office doesn't even show a light of connection on the router except during startup. I no longer get a window of logon passwork for the router, and I am unable to connect/ping the router in the office. (

    I would like to clarify a few things.

    1. two laptops work fine with cable connections and wireless through the WRT54G.

    2 desktop PC, which has only a wired connection, does not connect successfully.

    3. the symptoms of the failure of the desktop connection to are that the link on the router at the start light flashes during initialization of the PC but then will Dim.

    4. when the desktop PC trying to connect to the internet, it fails.

    The output of the command should provide some information about the current state of the network connection.

    It would be useful that you posted this here release.

    The absence of a link light can be your main symptom and may be due to several reasons. He probably has an associate status "media disconnected" in IPCONFIG for the network connection.

    This could be caused by a bad network cable or a network connection disabled in the properties of the network on the PC. Small jets knowing the ot IPCONFIG output is would help more.

  • Remote access Windows Server 2012 through internet with desktop connection

    Summer messing about with it for days and don't get no love.

    Try to connect with Windows 7 Ultimate edition to Windows Server 2012 Data Center version from outside my home network, Starbucks or McDonald's or my server at home.

    Tried all these steps found in this promising and useful article:


    1. Allow connections to the computer you want to access remotely. DONE - ADDED to THE SERVER AND NON-ADMIN ACCOUNT to RDP GROUP of ROLES, using network level authentication. Connection of Win 7, so this method of authentication should not be a problem, I assume.
    2. Make sure that remote desktop is able to communicate through your firewall. DONE - FOR BOTH PUBLIC AND PRIVATE RULE.

    3. Find the IP address of the computer on your home network you want to connect. MADE - by using the ipconfig/all command

    4. Open your router configuration screen and worms forward port 3389 for TCP IP address of the destination computer. DONE - NOT TCP/UDP but TCP only, internal and external port goes. Note: The use of a booster signal wifi at the end of the House, it is a problem that requires additional configuration? I don't think he has an ip address or acts as a router. But in desperation I can try unplugging then again head the local Starbucks to try to connect.

    5. Find the IP address of the router so that the remote desktop can be found on the Internet. DONE - using "what is my ip", pretty easy.

    6. Open Remote Desktop connection, and connect. ACTUALLY, I think THAT, IN ENTERING [ip router]: 3389.

    But the result of the message is always the typical:

    (1) remote access to the server is not enabled.

    > But this is not true, that I am capable of the DRC at home on the server machine.

    (2) computer remote is not off.

    > But this is not true, as I just left home 30 minutes and sometimes it's rarely, only restarted.

    (3) the remote computer is not available on the network.

    > Don't know what that means. Of course the remote computer is not on the network, I am on right now. It's on my home network. But I can ping my router ip via cmd, then coming to the outside can be done; through my router, I should be able to access inside my home network port forwarding w. But no love.

    So... what to do, what to do...

    The wifi booster is a problem?

    Connects to the Data Center edition a problem?

    What happens if I uncheck the option ' use authentication NLA, is that the passage of the security risk?

    Any ideas about the configuration I could be missing before giving up and go for VPN or TeamViewer. I would really like to see materialized during all the time that I put in trying to run the DRC.

    Thanks for any input.

  • Using airplay on airport express with wired connections

    Hello world

    I think in a very special configuration and I was wondering if it would work or not.

    I have a Linksys router with 802.11ac ability now. I wish I had a pregnant airplay on my network, so I thought buy a used Airport express, connect the speakers to it and plug the Airport express via a LAN cable to the linksys router. I also think to turn off wifi on the Airport express so it does not disturb my 802.11ac network.

    So the question is: is it possible to have the airport base station to connect to my router Linksys on LAN and airplay works this way on the Linksys WiFi network?

    Thank you


    In theory, it works... but you will have to set up the AirPort Express to create a wireless first, then go back and turn off the wireless feature.

    Ensure that the Express is a common pattern of A1392, or the previous version of A1264. Much A1084 most, it's not what you want.

  • Wired connection without love at first sight?

    I need to update the software for my router at home. (The router were made by Netgear).

    At the beginning of the instructions, it says this: "to avoid the problem of disconnection during the process of the firmware download wireless, NETGEAR recommends this firmware update be performed on a computer with wired connection.

    I don't know how to connect my Macbook Air to the modem with a cable, since it seems that there is no port for this.

    It seems that I might be able to buy a "Thunderbolt" adapter for $29, but that seems like a piece of expensive hardware because I need only to update this software. For $29, I could virtually buy a new router.

    Two questions:

    1. is there a cheaper way to connect my Macbook Air to the internet with a cable?

    2. can I download updated the firmware of the Netgear via the normal WiFi connection, or he'll just permanently disconnect my laptop on my home WiFi network?

    Thank you for any advice you can give me.

    (1) No, you need to this thunderbolt adapter and an ethernet cable.

    (2) what they give is the perfect Board as ethernet is more reliable than wifi. But I am not agree.  Maybe I have will burn someday, but chances are with me.  99% + chance you can do wireless.  You are offline but can reconnect automatically in most cases and may have to do a manual connect after installs the firmware.

  • Low speed on Wireless N

    I'm trying to implement a DV6 on Wireless N. I have a Linksys WRT160N router and get speeds up to 120mbps on a desktop wireless located near 100 feet from the router. I can not get over 54 Mbps on the laptop, even within 10 feet. I checked the properties of the device and verified that the width of the channel is set to AUTO and 802.11n Mode is ENABLED. I noticed the rest of my system below specs. Any help would be appreciated.


    Operating systems: Windows 7 (64-bit)

    RAM: 4 GB

    WiFi ADAPTER: Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN


    ROUTER: Linksys WRT160N

    FIRMWARE: 3.0.02

    After much research, I believe I have solved the problems with the Wireless N of low speeds, especially with Intel WiFi Link 1000 BGN configurations. Here's what I could learn from Intel support forums.

    "The IEEE * 802.11n draft prohibits using high throughput with WEP or TKIP as the unicast encryption algorithm." If you use these methods of encryption (WEP, WPA-TKIP), your rate will be reduced to 54 Mbit / s. Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5350, Intel® WiMAX/WiFi Link 5150, Intel® WiFi Link 5300, Intel® WiFi Link 5100, Intel® WiFi Link 1000, and Intel® Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN client drivers connect using a legacy IEEE 802.11 g connection rather than failing to connect altogether which complies with the IEEE 802.11n draft standard. "This means that you must use a connection Wi - Fi Protected Access * (WPA2-AES or WPA2-TKIP).

    I have reset the wireless security on my router to use WPA2-AES, reconfigured my laptop for the same security settings and options was immediately connected to more than 200 Mbit/s.

  • 8620 HP: HP 8620 connects to Internet with WiFi

    After reading several posts I couldn't 8620 HP to connect to the internet using a wired connection.  This wired connection had no problem with printing or scanning to multiple computers on my network.

    I tried different solutions to make the wired connection to the Internet work:

    • Static IP address
    • Printer Firmware updated
    • Port forwarding (Port 80 for working on my router; could not do error reportef as duplication?)
    • Setting clock
    • Disable IPv6
    • Multiplle restart the printer and the router

    Then I tried to use wireless (WiFi) connection.  It worked.  Now, I really prefer to use the wired connection.

    If it helps I have a Linksys router e4200 with current firmware.

    Please help me make the wired (Eithernet) to connect to the internet.

    Thank you


    Thanks for your reply.  I solved this problem by printing two reports "HP Network Configuration";  One eithernet and wireless.  Then I compared the two differences because I know that it worked on wireless and not eithernet.

    The only difference between the two was DHCP making for the wireless and wide for a wiring.  As I assigned permanent IP addresses on the router, I guess that DHCP is fine.  I have change the wired / eithernet connection DHCP... Now it works!

    It seems strange to me, that was the question, but I'm glad everything is working now.

    Thanks again for your help and pour this solution into your bag of solutions when your help others.

  • WLAN speed when you are connected to the internet

    I use WRT54G2 V1 Wireless Router. My firmware version is 1.0.04)is.

    I connect to the internet via ADSL.

    Both computers are connected to the router, we have a connection cable, other is connected wireless.

    If I'm not connected to the internet, I can transfer files between them through 1.5MB/s-2MB/s. But, if I'm connected to the internet, the speed drops to 100 KB/s - 200 KB/s. My adsl connection has a bandwidth of 1 Mbps (about 128 KB/s).

    Has anyone faced similar problem? No idea what to do?

    You said that you receive the Internet wireless at 100-200 Kbps (kilobytes per second), but I guess you're saying 100 to 200 Kbps (kilobits per second).  If you actually get 100 to 200 Kbps, so it is faster than your reported 1 Mbps line speed.

    A wireless connection is more important than a wired connection.  If most users, when connected wireless, get only about 50% to 70% of their wire speed.  So I'm expecting a 1 Mbit/s connected to the Internet, you should be able to get 500 to 700 kbps (kilobits per second) = approximately 50 to 70 Kbps (kilobytes per second) when connected wireless.

    When you file transfer from computer to computer on your local network, your speed is limited by 54 Mbps Wireless g your connection speed, which can provide a data rate up to 20 to 25 Mbit/s.  It is clearly much faster that your 1 Mbit/s to the Internet can provide data.  So that explains why the transfer of files on your local network is much faster than your wireless Internet connection.

    So, the only real problem I see is that your speed of your WAN (Internet) port to the wireless local area network computer seems to be slow.  The most common cause of this problem, is the default to reset the router by default after a firmware update.

    If you did not reset to the factory settings since the last update of the firmware, please do it now and see if it solves your problem.  After the reset, you must configure the router again from scratch.  If you have saved a router configuration file, DO NOT use it.

    To reset your router by default, follow these steps:

    (1) turn off all computers, the router and the modem and disconnect from the wall.
    (2) disconnect all the wires of the router.
    (3) turn on the router and let it start up completely (1-2 minutes).
    (4) press in and hold the reset for 30 seconds button, then release it, then let the router reset and restart (2-3 minutes).
    (5) turn the router.
    (6) connect a computer cable to port 1 of the router (NOT to the internet port).
    (7) turn on the router and let it start up completely (1-2 minutes).
    (8) the power of the computer (if the computer has a wireless card, make sure it's off).
    (9) try ping on the router. To do this, click the 'Start' button > all programs > Accessories > command prompt. A black DOS window will appear. Enter the following text: "ping" (without the quotes) and press the Enter key. You will see 3 or 4 lines that begin with ' response to... ". "or"Request timed out". If you see "reply from...". ", your computer has found your router.
    (10) open your browser and point it to This will take you to the login page of your router. Leave the user name blank and in the password field, enter "admin" (without the quotes). This will take you to your router configuration page. Note the version number of your firmware (usually found near upper right corner of the screen). Exit your browser.

    If you get this day without problem, try the Setup disk (or configure the router manually, if you prefer) and see if you can get your work and router configuration.

    If you can not ' response to... ". "in step 9 above, your router is probably dead. A report with this problem

    If you get a response in step 9, but cannot complete step 10, is that your router is dead or the firmware is damaged. Related to this issue.

    If you need additional assistance, please indicate your ISP, the make and model of your modem, the firmware version of your router and the results of steps 9 and 10. In addition, if you receive error messages, copy them exactly, and report.

    Please let me know how things turn out for you.

  • Qosmio F30: Can not connect to internet with WiFi safely

    I recently purchaced a Toshiba Qosmio F30 laptop and have spent the better part of two days trying to connect to wireless internet. After constantly call Wanadoo (my provider) and accusing them for all this, I thought that the laptop itself is at fault.

    What happens is when I try to enter my network key (WEP), default is a different key that I can't see that it's all in the points! This continues to be and im am totally unable to enter my network key. Until it is I turn off security on my livebox thingy and connect unsecurely and as I live in close proximity apartments, other people can and probably will connect to my internet, and I am also told that makes me more at risk of viruses and other.

    I apologize for my lack of technical jargon, and that I can not give a more descriptive... uh... description, but I'm just a beginner and not the most in computer science.

    Any help would be appreciated more!... Why is nothing simpler!

    Hi Luke,.
    Have you tried WAP (shared key) instead of WEP.
    In this way, you will need to make your own key instead of having the it generated by the router.
    It is also safer.

    To do this, you must enter the settings of your router (usually or, enter the password provided by Wanadoo, then click Security. Change the setting WEP WAP (or shared key) and enter a 10digit password then you will need to enter it again when your computer tries to connect to the router again.

    It is best to use a wired connection to change settings, then disconnect the cable and wireless.
    If you notice that you are connected wireless to the router, and your internet connection is dead, temporarily disable the LAN (reactivate when you are satisfied with your connection works). This would happen if your computer includes your wireless network connection to other computers and the wired connection like you internet connection (even if there is no wire connected).

    It is also important to change the administrator name and password to access your router (this would prevent your neighbors children playing to change your settings).
    Let me know if you have more problems.
