Moving N-adapter from USB hub to computer port increases speed from 6 Mbps to 24 Mbps

Q: Moving N-adapter from USB hub to computer port increases speed from 6 Mbps to 24 Mbps


I plugged in an N-adapter to a USB hub and it gave me a 6 Mbps in www.speedtest.net. I thought this was kind of slow for what the adapter "claimed" (300Mbps). But then I plugged it directly into a computer port and it showed 24 Mbps (my internet plan is 25 Mbps), which I suppose it's pretty close or even "maxed" because it's not really 25 Mbps all the time, right?

Is this normal? Is my USB hub crappy/old? Would it make a difference if I get a new USB hub?


Preferred Solution: Moving N-adapter from USB hub to computer port increases speed from 6 Mbps to 24 Mbps

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I currently have a 15 Mbps down / 1.5 Mbps up cable Internet connection. However when I go to www.speedtest.net or www.speakeasy.net to test the speed of the connection its only showing like 5 Mbps down / 400 Kbps up speed. But when I download a file it downloads at about 1,400 KBps (note that I said KILOBYTES per second not bits (as in 1,400 KBps = 11.2 Mbps)).

Anyway why do the down / upload speeds on the test sites suck but real file downloads are fast?

A:Speed test sites saying I download at 5 Mbps when I have a 15 Mbps connection?

They just do, don't worry about it.

I tested the internal HDD with CrystalDiskMark and was able to get 109 MBPS both on sequential read and write tests. Then, when I tested my 1 TB WD My Passport USB 3.0 External HDD with CrystalDiskMark the sequential read and write speed did not exceed 40 MBPS the few times I tried. Got similar 30-40 MBPS speed when transferring movies from external HDD to internal HDD.
So far, I have tried updating the external HDD and USB 3.0 Controller drivers. Tried with 'USB selective suspend setting' disabled (Under Power Plan Options). Also tried with write caching enabled. But havent been able to solve the issue.
My laptop is running Win 10 Home 64-Bit. I am sure I used the USB 3.0 port. And, I used the USB 3.0 cable supplied with the external HDD. I don't have another USB 3.0 device so cannot figure out whether the issue is with my laptop of the external HDD.'

Is there some Windows 10 setting that might be causing this?
Please help me out here.

A:USB 3.0 port transfer speed on HP Laptop not exceeding 40 MBPS

Internal and external speeds are fully different. Your internal hard drive runs off the South bridge Chipset, which all new SATA controllers are SATA III 6G. The USB 3.0 runs off a completely different controller or Chipset, such as AsMedia or VIA Chipset. That 40 MBS is actually a good transfer rate speed for an external 3.0 port.

My Motherboard has USB 3.0 boost, and there was only one USB 3.0 flash drive in it, and the transfer rates were between 20mb to 35 mb a sec, which I think is normal for a flash drive. All other flash drives are USB 2.0 that I use in the ports

Hey everyone.

Thanks for looking, need a little help here.

I can't figure out what is going on with my desktop. It's usually connected via a USB wireless dongle and used to take full advantage of my 50 mbps connection. Now, It varies all over the place from 2 mpbs up to 50. I first thought it was the dongle so I replaced that with a PCI-e adapter that can handle 450 mbps. However, that has not seemed to fixed the issue.

I thought it was the router. Reset that. Thought it was the modem. Reset that. However, my 5 year old laptop runs at 50 mbps all day long. I've used multiple websites to test the connection and I ensured to same sites for both the laptop and desktop. So the only thing that's left is software on my computer right? Driver issue? I just installed fresh drivers for this adapter and still no go.

Although I've enjoyed building and being a PC junkie for the last 25 years, networking it just not my specialty. Any thoughts or suggestions?

A:Wireless speeds vary form 2 mbps to 50 mbps, don't think it's hardware.

Hello all,

So i'm kind of at the end of trying to figure this out on my own, so thought i would reach out for some help.

I am having internet speed issues on my desktop PC. i know that it is not necessarily an issue with the router or service, as all other devices get close to, if not more than the speeds we are supposed to get.

When my PC and my Girlfriends laptop are sat next to each other, in the room directly above the room where the router/modem is, her laptop is reaching download speeds of 100mbps+, where as mine has at max hit 18mbps.

My pc has an asus PCE-AC51 wireless network card, and the whole PC was custom and only put together less than a year ago.

Now to explain what i have tried:

-Location - i have moved my PC around, and also moved a wi-fi extender into the same room to boost the signal slightly, although i didn't think that this would be the issue anyway, due to the laptop and other devices having no problem with signal.
-i have fully reset my PC, wiped everything, just in case i has enabled some mystery setting, but mostly just to return the PC to a blank slate to cancel other factors out.
-i made sure all the networking drivers were fully up to date.
-I have (to some degree) looked into the PCE's advanced settings through device manager, and tried taking the wireless mode off Auto and trying all the manual options, all of which led to less than 10mbps speeds. (this is where my tech know-how peaks, and most off the advanced settings in ... Read more

I recently upgraded my internet from 25 mbps to 100, while I thought getting 9.5 was always normal for that speed, after the upgrade it is still sitting at the same speed. My other devices in the house are getting at least 70 mb/s via wifi while I have a hardwired connection. I've done everything I can think of, downloading newest drivers, calling my ISP, trying different modems cords connection types or devices. Nothing has made any change, there is no change in speed between wifi and hardwired eiher, they both cap at 9.52 mb/s. I'm currently updating to windows 10, and am on a different device, but in a few hours I will post again with system specs and the requested log.

This forum doesn't seem super active, probably because of the few Helix owners, but I'll post my question anyway hoping someone can confirm  My wifi speed is limited to 20 Mbps.  Whether connecting to the internet, or on my intranet.  Top of the line 802.11ac router, few feet away, no interferences, copying files to or from a PC (which is connected to the network by ethernet),  I get no more than 2.5 MB/sec.  Same location, with a 3-yr old laptop: 8-10 MB/sec.  Reboots driver update etc no difference.  Different router and location is the same. The Helix reports the wifi card as 802.11a, too.  Not 802.11n or a/n  Connecting the USB to ethernet lenovo adpater, I get 11 MB/sec, so close to the 100mbps limit of the adpater, that's normal. Issue: well, accessing data and for example browsing pic tures on my NAS or another PC is very painful at 2 MB/sec.  At 8-10 MB/sec on my laptop it's instantaneous no pb. I'm ok if it's a small cheaper 10" Atom tablet, but not so much for a $2,000 laptop/tablet.  My basic 3-yr old laptop does 5 times better. Or is my Helix faulty? 

Go to Solution.

A:Wifi Speed Limited to 20 Mbps?!

I second that, the Lenovo team should take a closer look at this problem.I'm oscilating around 4MB/s, which is also slower than expected, sometimes even dropping to 2,5.It could be a driver fault, hopefully fixable.

A:Laptop, N Adapter, N Router - Only 54 Mbps

No, I think 54 is the max in some areas (Bandwidth given to your house). The other numbers are what they could potentially do but aren't even getting that high of bandwidth. But 54 straight still should be pretty fast, is it not?

I just bought a Dell i14z laptop, and I've been getting speeds of 25-35 Mbps at the hotel I'm staying at. My other laptop (Gateway NV73) is usually between 1-3 Mbps, but lately it is less than 1. Before I bought my new laptop, I assumed that the slow speeds were the norm on the public WiFi networks I use. Today, I updated the wireless driver from the Gateway website, and immediately I was getting 20+ Mbps, which was faster than I've ever seen from Speedtest for that laptop. After restarting a few hours later, it is now back to < 1 Mbps. How can I get the same fast speeds on my Gateway that I'm getting on my Dell? Thanks in advance.

Hello, I am using a HP mini 110-1000 notebook and my wireless network connection speed is constantly changing from 36.0 Mbps to 24 Mbps and then 18.0 Mbps and keeps going back to 36 etc. My signal strength is showing 4 bars instead 5 and I am close to my router. I have done the turn off modem and router and has returned back to 54Mbps but after a few minutes it starts dropping to 34 Mbps. Its been like this for almost 2 months now and I need some help.

A:Dropping 54.0 mbps - 18 mbps?

When that happened to me it was because I had the wrong driver. If you are using an integrated wireless adapter get the latest driver for it from HP's web site. If it is an external card get the latest driver from its manufacturer's web site. Even if you have the latest driver make sure that you install it again, as the installed version may be corrupted.

I've been having issues with my Ethernet speed on my 9360 while connected to TB16. I can't get anything above 100 Mbps even though my Ethernet speed is 250 Mbps. My other laptop with built-in network card has no problems with reaching the full 250 Mbps.
I've checked TB16 specs and it tells there's a gigabit Ethernet controller onboard, so it shouldn't be an issue.
I have latest drivers from Dell's website and also tried the latest Realtek drivers - no speed change.
I've played with the driver settings and disabled all speed optimizations and enforced 1 Gbps full duplex as a default setting, but still no effect.
I've seen a couple of other forum members reporting the same issue, but all of them were running Linux, while I'm running Windows 10 64-bit. Apparently, the fault is with the dock.
Can anyone confirm the limitation and can suggest any workaround? 

A:TB16 Ethernet speed limited at 100 Mbps

You definitely don't want to force 1 Gbps Full in Device Manager.  Forcing linespeed and duplex settings especially on gigabit connections can lead to worse performance even when those hardcoded settings are correct. The standard for gigabit is auto-negotiate.  There's a Realtek network FIRMWARE update for the TB16 and WD15 docks around here somewhere, but I don't know if that would help this issue.  But my main question is: What do you mean your Ethernet is 250 Mbps?  There's 100 Mbps and 1 Gbps.  There's no standard for 250 Mbps Ethernet.Have you tried a different cable?  Do you have any other systems that are negotiating at 1 Gbps with the cable and switch/router port you're currently using with the TB16?

So I have a wireless network setup in our 4 bedroom apartment and I am connecting wirelessly on my desktop with a usb drive(hub is in another room). Half of the time I will have an excellent connection at 54Mbps, and then for whatever reason, will just plummet to 1Mbps but still says excellent signal strength. Right now its working perfectly fine, however an hour or so from now, will probably crash randomly. I have a feeling its my firewall because its disabled right now, but im not sure. Any other ideas?

A:Signal Strength = Excellent, Speed = 1 Mbps

Make sure you have the latest driver for the wireless adapter.

Could be the adapter or router beginning to fail. How to recover after the bandwidth plummets?

In an apartment building there are lots of opportunities for wireless interference, such as from 2.4Ghz cordless phones and other networks on the same or close channel.

Firewalls either block or not; I have never heard of them affecting speed as in your symptoms.

Hi Guys, Need some troubleshooting help with my connection. My speed has decreased drastically beginning in early January, dropping from 27-31mbps to 1.6 mbps
Here is what I have done so far
I have power cycled my router, and I have swapped out ethernet cables to both my router and to my PC.
I have bypassed my router and, direct connected thru my modem . Oddly enough, this was even slower
I am running teamviewer so I can simultaneously check speed on my other win 7 PC (3 feet away) where my download speed is 30.1mbps

I have wirelss devises in the house that have good connection so process of elimination points to my PC. It would be nice if it just stopped working all together. It is the slow speed that confuses me.

Buy an ethernet card and be done with it or have I missed something?

Thanks in advance for your assist


A:Solved: Help with troubleshooting speed. download is 1.6 mbps!!

And you are connected to your router via Ethernet?

What is the specs of the computer in question?
And since you mentioned that it worked fine prior to January, do you recall making any configuration to the operating system (e.g downloading new softwares...) or made any hardware changes with your current network?

My guess would be something to do with the Operating System that is consuming bandwidth resources making the said computer slow.

Hey im having some trouble with my wireless adapter. I know that it is not my routers problem since i have my xbox set up into it and i never get any kind of lag on it same if i hook a pc up to it. Problem is my wireless adapter that is new will start out in the 40-50s mbps. But after a few mins of useing my computer it will make a sudden drop down anywhere from 1-18 mbps. I am the only person useing internet in my household and i have a good internet plan with verizon. Usealy the only way to fix this is to pull out my wireless adapter for a few mins than put it back in. If not i have to just do something else for a few hours and it will go back up again. I am getting a decent signal strength so i really do not understand the problem. Also when my mbps drops down very low it will even go so far as not letting me browse the internet at all. It will say i am connected to local and internet like normal yet i wont beable to connect to anything and i will have to restart my connection again.

And yes, I do have the internet speed to go beyond 10 Mbps:

Wireless : NETGEAR Wireless Adapter

I've effectively ruled the problem to be ONLY on this computer.

Alright let's begin. I have 2 major problems.

1. Due to a recent lightning storm, I've just recently purchased a replacement XFINITY Modem(unfortunately -_-). The XFINITY Modem before this replacement always had my Ethernet wired connection at a solid 30 mb/s on Speedtest so I know my wired connection can reach those speeds. However, after this replacement modem my Ethernet wired connection is CONSTANTLY capped at 2-9 mb/s (It will never go above 10). This has been happening for a couple weeks now, and I've lost sleep trying to fix it. I've tried everything, literally, virtually, everything. I just don't know what the hell to do anymore. The fact that I even registered to post this thread and one on tomshardware shows I'm desperate enough. I just want to play video games guys :/

2. My Wifi. My wireless connection on the other hand passes the usual Speedtest 100%, 30 mb/s, every single time. The only problem is, and I'm not completely sure how it is triggered, after a couple hours of use on the wireless card my ping will begin to climb into the thousands, and it will stay there until I literally plop the card out, plop it back in. Fixed just like that until the next climb.

I'm thinking, if these have different compression and/or modulation technologies, the 21 Mbps card might have an advantage, like a 56k modem has better speeds than a 33.6k modem on a same not-so-good analog telephone line, mainly due to the different compression technology involved. I couldn't find proper information about this in the internet, so posted this question.

I need a help to resolve one issue with my Belkin router F7D4402 v1. I have got it recently and configured it without any issue and my internet (ADSL) was up and running. However, later I have noticed that, my internet speed is limited to 1.5 Mbps. whereas; the speed I was getting on my old Linksys WAG200 router was minimum 2.0 Mbps.

I have tried to disable the QoS and other options but no use. But when I enabled the Mac cloning it worked fine. I was getting the speed I subscribed for, but unfortunately, the other devices on my Wi-Fi stopped working. With Mac clone enable, the internet is only available to my PC.

I need the internet on my PC plus all the Wi-Fi devices in my house and along with it my full internet speed, not just 1.5 Mbps.

Can anyone please help to fix the issue?

Thank a lot.

It's not the router - - you up against the limit of ADSL.

I have a problem with my network adapter where every time I start my computer, The device manager shows the adapter as having an issue which means I have to disable and then enable it in order to make it work. I am tired of having to do this every time I start my pc.

I have windows 7 64-bit Ultimate and the network adapter is part of a Gigabyte M68MT-S2 motherboard. I think the network adapters model is Nvidia nForce 630a but am not entirely sure how to check this.

I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, checking for driver updates and nothing works.

Please help, or ask for any information you require. Thanks.

I've been experiencing some problems with my RangeMax wireless NETGEAR router (model WPN824) in terms of wireless connectivity.

When directly plugged into my router (i.e. using ethernet cables), the download and upload speed (in mbps - megabytes per second) appear to be working correctly, where we register average download speeds of 15-19 mbps, and 1.99 to 2.07 mbps for upload speeds, as shown on speedtest.net. However, our wireless devices (i.e. laptops and Nintendo Wii) are not picking up the same download speeds, but the upload speed is fine. The problem is that the download speeds of the wireless devices are comparatively low, where speeds of 2.5 to 5.5 mbps are a commonality.

We've tried resetting the router (pushing that small button at the back of the router, using a pin) and have a new 10-character key password. We've also tried simply unlugging the power cable to the router, with disconnecting lengths of about 10 seconds to over a minute for separate attempts. It is also worth noting that the router occasionally disconnects and re-connects on irregular intervals, and we have many wireless devices attached to the router (though many of these are not in use and are very often disconnected from the internet, so I do not think the router is being overwhelmed).

I am currently paying for 30 mbps downloading speed and 2 mbps with respect to uploading, though the 30 mbps downloading speed will likely only be registered if directly connected to the bl... Read more

For some reason programs and files are taking a very long time to download (about 30 kbps), but youtube plays fine, I can go to any website and troubleshooting shows nothing wrong. I went to speedtest.net and I'm averaging about 12 mbps so files should be downloading fast.

At this point I'm stumped. This PC has a fresh install of Windows 7, up-to-date. It is a Dell OptiPlex 780.

I should have also mentioned that the Network drivers are also up-to-date.

Just recently I ran a total PC system recovery. I installed all the drivers and everything. I am using a Linksys Compact Wireless USB G Adapter. My wireless internet connection was working faster before but now I only get a few MBPS out of it sometimes 1 to 11 being the best. I also use a Linksys Router-- the common one. There are a few environmental factors as well that should be noted: Recently bought new home phones, and all the snow just melted and there is a ton of moisture in the air. Also note that my connection does actually work its just extremely sluggish. Thanks for any information.

Edit: I'm getting 54 Mbps on my other computer so connection is fine.
Edit: Now it's saying its getting 54 MBPS on the problem computer but downloads show otherwise as I'm getting about 2KB/sec

A:Getting 5 Mbps instead of 100 Mbps

100 Mbps and 54 Mbps are theoretical maximum speeds. They're not actually achievable.

For the life of me, I can't understand Kbps but I can understand kBps (don't ask...)

Is there any way to set all Networking (downloads, etc.) to be kBps (I know in my Linux VM [Owncloud appliance] it shows e.g. 1569kbps = 156KBps = 1.5Mbps I think..)

Hi Guys,

I was looking into buying a wireless router and do not know which is better, a 54 mbps 802.11g or and 108 mbps 802.11g. If buy the 108 mbps, will that increase the internet speed to my computers or make the reception better? Can someone please explain these two things to me, thank you very much.


A:108 mbps vs 54 mbps

The 108mbit option is just a proprietary encoding scheme to squeeze more data across the wireless link. It won't help either reception or your Internet speed. If you use mixed brands of 802.11b/g equipment, I'd stick with the standard wireless options, many times the "turbo" modes cause problems with other brands of wireless equipment.

Hi all, I'm living in Toronto, Canada and on Rogers Cable Internet. Recently we've hooked up my wifes computer through a Linksys Etherfast Cable/DSL Router, Model BEFSR41. Someone at my work suggested I check out how fast service is comming in, it's told me that it's 100.0 Mbps. But how do I know if this is normal or not? I find that since i've hooked up this router the service seems a lot slower, is this possible to be a router problem, or is it to be expected. I'm just running one computer other then mine.

Does anyone know of any testing software available?

Thanks, Wogster.

A:100.0 Mbps ??

With 100mb/s, you would not need to worry. 100kb/s on the other hand might be slower than your previous service. http://www.dslreports.com/tools has a speed test on it.

I just networked my laptop with a router that is 11 Mbps. When I had the laptop connected straight to the modem, I got 100 Mbps. What happened?



I reffered to many post but nothing helpful.

Im not getting 300MBPS Speed,

Im using ASUS N43S Model with Qualcomm atheros ar9002wb-1ng wireless network

OS in Win7 Home Premium

Pls refer the screenshot, As you see the speed is only 65MBPS

How to make it 300 ?

You can see in Wireless Mode Section there is only 2 options, There is no N

So 1 doubt is my card is supportive for N (300MBPS ) if yes then what should I do it to make it possible ?
Even the drivers are updated ( As per Atheros.cz site )

pls help. Thanks

Note : My old laptop some fujitsu model is able to achieve 300MBPS
where my new i7 is struggling

A:65 MBPS only, it should be 300 isn't it.

Hi Fr3ndZ,

If you run a speedtest on your new laptop and old laptop are you getting different speeds?
I think even on N you will still struggle to get above 50 meg wirelessly.
