Problem with my download speed limit
« on: July 12, 2011, 09:48:01 AM »

Hello there. I hope I don't mess up with this post but here's my problem.
I bought my d-link 615 a few days ago and managed to connect it to my network and so on but I have a problem when it comes to my download speed. My usual speed is somewhere between 7.5-8 mb/s but when I have the router installed it's limited to 5 mb/s. Do you know why this might be happening?
Ah yes... I forgot to mention, I'm talking about my LAN connection.
Ty and have a nice day :)

What HW version is your router?

What ISP Service do you have? Cable or DSL?
What ISP Modem do you have? Stand Alone or built in router?
What ISP Modem make and model do you have?

Ensure DNS IP addresses are being filled in under Setup/Internet/Manual?
Turn off QoS options.
Turn off Advanced DNS Services if you have this option.
Turn on DNS Relay under Setup/Networking.
Setup DHCP reserved IP addresses for all devices on the router.
Ensure devices are set to auto obtain an IP address.
Set Firewall settings to Endpoint Independent for TCP and UDP.

Turn off all anti virus and firewall programs on PC while testing.
Turn off all devices accept for one wired PC while testing.

My router is the one in the link:
http://www.emag.ro/routere_wireless/router-wireless-n-300mbps-d-link-dir-615-cu-4-porturi-10-100-switch--pDIR-615

I looks like it started working after verifying the settings you mentioned but the speed has some weird fluctuations.... One second I have my max speed, the other it goes down to 1-2 kb/s

 DIR-615
Hardware Version: H1  
Firmware Version: 8.00  

My internet connection is one based on my MAC address. I don't really know what kind it is but what I can say for certain it is that it's not from my telephone. I presume it's cable...

As for the last two questions I don't really know what they mean. Could you please explain? Ty

Was curious if your ISP modem that the router is connected to if it has a built in router as well as the modem part or if it's just a stand alone modem with out any built in router features. If it has a built in router, this can cause connection issues having 2 routers on the same line and network.

What is the brand name and model number of the ISP modem?
You are wired to the router from the PC, not connecting wireless?
Is the Wireless radio on and running? Are you using it?
You can set the WiFi mode from Mixed to Single mode G or Mixed G and N if you have N supporting devices.

I really don't understand what I need to answer for the questions...
Are my motherboard details needed? http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=2960#ov
It's a GIGABYTE p43-ES3G motherboard

The pc is connected directly from the network slot in my motherboard to the router with the cable I got when I bought the router.

What is the modem brand and model of it that the router is connected too?
There is a another box that the 615 router is connected to that it's connected to your Internet Service provider. THis is the modem. Just curious on the brand name and model number if it.
Your mother board information isn't necessary here.

I don't have any other devices connected to or from my network cable.... It comes from a network switch mounted on a telephone post on my street

Interesting, no modem. I guess thats down the street some where.
Ok, then,

Do you see any speed problems if the router is bypassed and the cable from the telephone post goes directly to your PC?

Yes I do. That's why I made this topic, because my internet connection is working as it should. The router seems to be the problem...

So to make myself clear:
When I connect directly thru my network cable, my connection is perfectly normal. It works great.
When I connect via the router, the problems start appearing...

Ok, now I understand.

SO in my first reply to your posting, Have you set up the router with those settings to see if anything has changed?

It's possible to maybe teamviewer in and check the router settings for you.

Is there a more resent FW update for your region?

I did the setting you made and i got up to my max speed but it still dropped suddenly from time to time. I'm going to reset it, try setting it again and paying attention to what you said. Brb in a few :D

EDIT: Well I'm back... It seems to be working ATM and hopefully it will remain that way.
BTW what does the QoS setting stand for? What does it does. Just out of curiosity.
