    Default Internet Troubles

    I am having GREAT troubles with my internet. I called Road Runner recently (My ISP) and told them lately my internet has not sending me all of my packets and they checked my internet. After doing so they had told me that my Router is going to die out. Later that week I got fed up and did a little test. I removed my router and tried running on the modem alone. It worked great. So later on in the day I restarted my whole router and it worked fine, till it slowed down again. Then I tried power restarting it, after I did this my Modem somehow died out. I called my ISP again, and got a new modem, after a short while my internet was fast, but then it began to slow down gradually. Then I went out and bought a new wireless router and the internet speed was o.k till it slowed down again. I tried checking my cables making sure they were crossover and not anything else, and I also tried different cables as well. What is the cause of this? Is it because of a virus? I have locked my internet, so no one can fish my internet.

    I can't help with your internet speed issue, but I thought I'd mention you shouldn't actually be using crossover cables. Even if you did need to connect two network devices of the same type (e.g. computer to computer, hub to hub, etc) most network devices these days are capable of automatically detecting and applying an internal crossover. That's evident in the fact that your network still works, it's automatically detecting the fact that you're using crossover cables and using an internal crossover to make it act like a regular ethernet cable.

    I have found out the problem, I think. The problem was I had a Regular Linksys router, I today I just bought a Linksys Speed Booster router, and it is working great for me right now. The only question that I have is; before when I had my router it was working fine, till my internet started to slow down. Recently my ISP (Road Runner) told me they had upgraded to 7mbps, the original was 5. So what was the real problem here?

    This "Speed Booster" feature doesn't increase the speed of your internet, it only increases the speed of your home wireless network. I have a hunch you're actually getting some interference in your wireless network, causing packet loss. It could be that your neighbours recently set up their own wireless network and they're operating on the same frequency as you, or it could even be other cordless devices in the area. If it slows down again try changing your wireless network's channel.

    Or run CAT-6 all over your place.
