Horrible download speeds
« on: December 28, 2008, 10:20:14 PM »

I recently bought DWA-556 to use with my DIR-655 router (was using 802.11G USB adaptor before) and I have been very disappointed with it. I tried copying files from my main computer (which is connected directly to the router) and I my download speed did not went higher than 1mb. I installed the latest drivers from Windows Update but still I no luck. Following is my router configuration. Please advise.



I'm using Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit.

ajamils,

Uninstall the driver completely and update the adapter with he D-Link driver from our support site.

You can choose to update the driver and not use the D-Link utility.

I followed the instructions and reinstalled the card with the drivers from above link and now the speeds are even worse. The best speed I get while copying files over network is around 900kbps and usually it stays around 200 - 300kbps.  >:(

I think I'm gonna give it couple more days and if it doesn't work I'll just return it and use my old 802.11G USB adapter.
