Slow D/L Speeds on 5Ghz Network

Q: Slow D/L Speeds on 5Ghz Network

Hey everyone. Computer is an X1 Carbon Gen4 with Win10 Pro. No recent modem/router changes. No software changes. No updates available through TVSU (at least that's what it says.. I use to have updates available every couple of days and it's said there were no packages available for my system for almost a month now)/Lenovo website. Windows updates current. All drivers should be current. For some reason, only on this laptop, I'm getting around 50Mbps down instead of my normal 230Mbps down. Just started within the past couple days. It's not location related, I've eliminated that possibility. I powercycled the modem and router. I did a factory reset on the router. I tried using Google's DNS (I had to do that on my MBP to get the correct speeds out of it on the 5Ghz network) and it didn't change. My upload speeds are normal at 20-23Mbps. Any idea? My iPhone and MacbookPro are getting correct speeds.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Forgot to mention I tried resetting the TCP/IP stack and flushing the DNS and those didn't work either.

Currently have a WiFi network setup for internet. Both computers connect to the router via WiFi Dongles. Which is running no problems.

Each computer is then plugged into a network switch (cheap 4 port stand alone unit) via Ethernet cables (gigabit ports) and into the switch I have also have a WD My Cloud.

Having various issues, such as unidentified network, network being defaulted back to public, the ip addresses I have assigned being reset to obtain automatically and only getting transfer speeds of 3MB/s

Running windows 10. No home group/work group setup, have 1 drive on the other computer shared and mapped as a network drive.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Large Send Offload is a technique of improving network performance while at the same time reducing CPU overhead. Apparently it does not work very well, so it was suggested to disable it. If you would like to know about LSO, check this MSDN article from 2001 (Task Offload (NDIS 5.1) (Windows Drivers)).

LSO is an option located in a Device Manager under your network adapter, so this solution requires Administrator Privileges.

Follow these steps:
1.Open Start Menu, right-click on Computer and select Properties
2.Under Control Panel Home located on the left side of the window click on Device Manager
3.You will get a list of all devices on your machine. Expand Network Adapters.
4.Find your Network Card and double-click on it.
5.Select Advanced tab. You will get a list filled with different options.
6.Select Large Send Offload V2 (IPv4) and set the value to Disabled
7.Do the same for Large Send Offload V2 (IPv6) if it is available
8.Click OK

After clicking OK, tried to send a file over the LAN network. Transfer speed started very slow, but it was gradually picking up speed. Decided to restart the computer and try to send that file again and this time it worked like a charm.

Now that sending of files worked as it should, also checked speed for receivi... Read more

I'm using a hub and have 2 different computers hooked up to it, mine being the server. I don't know what kind of network you would classify it as but I'm using it to ftp files to different computers, hope this makes since. But anyway, whenever I hook the cable directly computer to computer I get transfer speeds of about 9-10mb but whenever I run it through the hub I don't get anything over 1mb. Anyone have any idea why the hub would be slowing things down?

Thanks,
Trigg
 

A:Slow Network Speeds

Replace it with a 10/100 switch or if you are on broadband, a router with built-in 10/100 switch.

Hubs let through selective traffic from one user at a time, whereas switches let through all traffic simultaneously.

It also sounds as if you have some slow 10MB NICs. Replace these with 10/100 NICs

Hi guys,
I have three computers on my home network:
(a) desktop in the office with ASUS USB-N53 adapter
(b) new desktop in the office with fairly old Broadcom PCI 802.11g adapter
(c) media box hooked up to TV hard wired to router

I recently mapped a drive on system A so that it could be shared with system B (they are side by side). Unfortunately, upon trying to transfer files the speeds are terrible! I am only getting between 500kb/s and 1mb/s.
Is this due to my relatively old wireless G adapter?

thanks :S

A:Slow Transfer Speeds over Network

It could be. You really need to use on both desktops wired connections. If you are going to use Wifi and transfer large files. You may want to invest into a Wireless-ac router and same for the adapters for the computers.

Wireless transfers only go as fast as the slowest connection.

hi folks, was wondering if the networking gurus here could shed some light on a pesky network speed issue that's been bugging me for a while now.
I have some large files that I'm trying to transfer over an 802.11n network via various high end routers and max transfer speed I get over all of them is 45Mbps, even though the routers are very close by and the
Link speed on both laptops is 300Mbps.

First laptop is a Dell M6700 with Windows 7 Professional, with Intel Centrino Advanced N 6205 a/b/g/n wireless card , driver Date 6/16/2013, v 15.9.0.5 , provided by Microsoft.

Second laptop is an Asus Q325UA (UX370UAR) with Windows 10 Home with Intel Dual Band AC8260 wireless card. (Driver Date 3/19/18, v 20.50.0.4, provided by Microsoft).

Between them I have a Linksys EA6350 router with latest firmware, supporting  both 2.4 and 5ghz.  and have set the network to 5ghz,  Since the Windows 7 Intel Centrino cannot support AC protocol, I have set the 5ghz network to Auto.  The
router has the latest firmware.

So when transferring files from one pc to another using copy and paste, why does it only say 2-3 maybe 5-6 or so..

I’m using windows vista, but it’s the same in XP when I was using it. I share a folder on network, browse to this shared folder using another PC on the network (same workgroup) and i copy and paste say a 600mb file. The transfer speed reports (in vista. xp don’t have this feature) that its around 3mb/s or so, whatever it says, it’s not "what it should be" regardless if its 100mbit(10MB/S) or gbit(100MB/s) network.

Now on the advanced config of the network adapter there are various settings that control the network adapter. Does one of these determine the overall speed or the transfer? Maybe a firewall or router is slowing the transfer; therefore a port should be opened? is so what port? Or are speeds slow due to windows..but where can I find information about such a bug, i mean iv looked and looked.

maybe I’m just not googleing the right thing

so anyway if someone knows anything that could help me speed up the transfer of data between two pc's on a windows network, It would be a great help.

Hi

I am transferring some files over my network using the Python SimpleHTTPServer on a Xubuntu box.

Code:

Code:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
The server is a mediocre, 4-5 year old machine AKA David. I don't have the exact specs to hand but it was bargain bucket in 2009

The client is a big powerful monster of a machine. Big games rig. AKA Goliath.

The router has a theoretical transfer speed of 300Mb/s. It's a TP-Link TL-WR841N.

My actual non-concurrent download speed is ~ 4Mb/s.

This isn't really my area and I was wondering if anyone can explain why this is? All connections are via Ethernet cable. David is connected via Ethernet. Goliath is connected via Ethernet to a Powerline Adapter which in turn is Ethernet connected. Over wireless, I am getting ~1.5Mb/s.

I'm not expecting the full theoretical maximum but surely better than 4Mb/s? Is there anyway to improve this? Why am I getting such a slow connection? I'm interested in the academic side of things here as well as the technical solution (if any)

My theory is that my rubbish-y old network card is throttling. Possible?

Thanks
 

A:Solved: Slow-ish transfer speeds over network

Several things here. First, the NIC(s) used can affect the speed, even the driver version can have an affect. Second, how each NIC is connected and configured (ie: 10half, 10Full, 100half, 100Full, etc.).

Verify the configuration end to end. Also, the router itself, and in this configuration, the powerline adapter can/are likely further reducing the speed.

Try moving everything to the same room and test. ie: David > short ethernet > router > short ethernet > Goliath

That will give you the best possible results with your current hardware (assuming there aren't any configuration issues).

Hello everyone,
I have 3 or 4 devices connected via a wireless connection, 2 of which are in the same room. Roughly a week ago, my desktop (Vista OS) started to suffer from severely reduced download speeds (5-30kb/s), while my laptop (also Vista OS) which is on the same wireless network continues to run at normal speeds (500kb/s-1mb/s).

I have tried a system restore, scanning for viruses, updating/disabling antivirus and firewalls, connecting directly to LAN, changed wireless interface speed from g to b to mixed, changed wireless channels from 1-6-11, nothing seems to work.

I have a Thomson TG782T router with a D-Link wireless card (which is rather old). I will be happy to post system specs if it helps diagnose this problem.

Please feel free to move this if it should be in the hardware section, I'm thinking it may be a hardware issue.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I got my Fiber line installed about 2 months ago. The offer I pay for says 1Gbits/s down and 200Mbits up. Naturally, I've never even gotten close to those speeds. At first, when the guy did his thing, I didn't have an Ethernet cable on hand (despite being a network and IT student...I know, the irony), so I used the router's Wifi. I was averaging 70 Mbits down. At first, I was thinking, 'this seems a bit low'...for fibre of course). I went into lectures the next day and people said, you may need to wait for your line to be properly activated...this seemed plausible, so I waited. The next week I stuck an RJ45 on some CATVE and immediately went to average 500Mbits/s (688Mbits/s record). Now, this is great, but it's still half of what I'm paying for.

However, for the past 2 days, I've been having problems. My Desktop (after coming out of sleep) always has the yellow triangle symbol over the wireless icon (faulty ethernet cable so was back to WiFi). I disconnect and reconnect to find the same problem. I restart the wireless on the router, to find the problem is persisting. Only after 3-5 tries does it work. My phone too has been having trouble connecting to WiFi (Authentification problem).

The original CAT5 cable has since 'developed' a problem and has been changed. The Pc hasn't been having the connection problem out of sleep, but Chrome is very slow to do anything. Youtube loads every other time, social media too. I... Read more

But, when viewing my connection or doing online speed tests, the speeds are actually great. I cannot stream video most of the time and images take longer than ever before to load. Web pages sometimes load fast and other times they will hang for a little while before downloading. If I try to download a file, my download box pops up but takes at least a minute or two to begin showing progress. Its as if im behind a proxy or something.

Hi
My PC's network card is configured as 100 Mbps
My NAS Drive is configured as 100 Mbps

My Home Hub 3 shows both connected at 100 Mbps, yet I'm getting a maximum of 1.3M transferring a file to the NAS.

Is there any way I can increase this ?
I get the same speed from my 20Mbps download from my DSL.

A:Slow Network Transfer Speeds on Local LAN

Your hub is probably whats causing the problem. Hubs are only able to run in 1/2 duplex mode so your speed is only 50 mbps.

100 Mbps (Mega bits per second) connection maximum theoretical speed is 12.5 MBps (Mega Bytes per sec)

A hub that runs in 1/2 duplex mode runs at 50 Mbps = 6.25 MBps

This is theoretical maximum speeds.

To increase you speeds i would suggest replacing your hub with a switch. If you want to increase it more add gigabit hardware to all your machines. That will give you a maximum of 125 MBps. On my Gigabit network I normally see network transfer speeds around 70-100 MBps.

I hope this helps.

I have 1 Samsung Series 6 Smart TV

Right.

I have no idea why this is occurring. I have full wi-fi signal and I have a fast broadband connection.

Every now and again the connection speed to just one PC drops to a point where there is almost no activity. I get various "connection timed out" and "DNS lookup failed" errors, then after about 10 minutes of frustration everything works again.

I know this problem is isolated to just this one PC as I have done Internet speed tests from another computer.

I have tried using different wireless cards, resetting the router, changing DNS servers. Nothing has worked.

it's connected directly to my router, as are a few other pc's in the house including a laptop - all via lan cable, as is my NAS drive.

None of it works.
I've been doing side by side tests, vs my Asus laptop (also on windows 10, and the last thing i'd expect in the house to work properly) - transferring the same file, from the same location on my NAS, to a local drive (ssd drives both on laptop and on pc).
With the laptop i get average transfer speeds of this 9gb file of 50-70 mb/s, every time, consistently, No problem at all.
With the PC, one time it will start at 55-60 and slow right down. Other times it'll start at 30 and again slow down.
Or it'll stay at 30.
More often than not, it starts at 30-40 then will slow to 15-20.
On the laptop its a consistent 55-65 and stays there for the entire file.

I recently downgraded from Vista to XP, and ever since then i've had download speeds of 5kb/s or less. Before now, i couldn't get onto anywebsites because it would time out, things like www.yahoo.com would take about 5 minutes to open properly. I did notice that when i was asked which partition to install XP on there was 2 sub partitions on the C drive for some reason. Anyway long story short, i managed to fix it by using the format option from booting the pc with the vista installation disk, then put xp in etc.
So, browsing speeds are normal for me, but i can't get on my online games because it just times out due to the slow download speeds, and anything large in size takes extremely long to download even with internet download manager, I've been waiting 10+ minutes for windows live messenger to finish downloading and installing and it still hasn't done so.

Hey, I'm having really slow speeds surfing the internet, watching videos on sites like youtube, and downloading files. So i went to Speedtest.net and found that my download speeds are only 1.3 mbps!! my upload is fine, around 5 mbps. I dunno what the issue could be! I am wirelessly connected to the router, but the signal strength is fine. Attatched is a screenshot from xirrus.
 

A:Slow Download Speeds, Upload Speeds fine

And your download speed with an ethernet connection to the router? Directly to the modem? What speed are you supposed to be getting?

Hi everyone, I have a Linksys AE6000 Wireless USB adapter in my Laptop and it is 5Ghz enabled. When I first got my laptop it had Windows 8 on it, but before I did anything I reformatted it to Windows 7. Under Windows 7, this wireless adapter connected to my 5Ghz SSID on my router (the 2.4 and 5Ghz SSIDs are different from one another on my router) just fine and I was getting 500Mb/s speed over Wi-Fi. Then, I upgraded laptop to Windows 8.1, where adapter only detects my 2.4Ghz SSID, and now I only get 150Mb/s over Wi-Fi.

What do I do? I have tried reinstalling driver, using Win7 compatibility mode drivers, installing manually without GUI, I have made sure internal card is fully disabled, etc etc...

My specs are as follows:

Intel Core(TM) i7-3632QM Quad-core mobile CPU
8.00GB DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 4000
AMD Radeon 7670M GPU 2GB
Samsung Evo 120GB SSD
HP ENVY/Pavilion m6
Internal Wi-Fi card - Intel Wireless-N 2230
External USB Wi-Fi - Linksys AE6000
Router - Netgear R6300
Internet Connection - 150Mb/s down , 10 Mb/s up
Thanks

Here's a trick where somebody downloaded a Cisco driver to get it working in 8.1:

AE6000 No Longer works with Windows 8.1 - Linksys Community

Hello all! Recently I have gotten new internet and upgraded from my sad excuse of a provider.

ANYWAYS. Our modem/router is dual band and my wireless adapter that I use for my computer is dual band enabled...

Usually I wouldn't worry about it, but with everyone at home streaming netflix, phones, games all at once our internet goes to crap...
On break today I was messing with the 5ghz.. I have tried both types of security keys and am enterting them right but my computer wont connect to the 5ghz it just says problem and doesnt list anything.. BUT if i take a code off the 5ghz all together my computer connects no problems and flys with speed..

So is there something I need to do to allow my PC to connect to the 5ghz with a key? I mean I am typing it in correct... Hell I even changed the code to something easier to see if that would work!

HELP

Hi folks,

This is my first network setup and i am hoping someone can help me with some issues. The setup is as follows:

Router: Netgear DG834GT ADSL

Computer 1: (Known as Maude)

Desktop
Celeron 434MHz CPU
512 Mb RAM
XP Home SP2
Wired to Router
Has USB Hard Drive that i want to use as a central data file storage space for the network.

XP Home SP2
ASUS WLAN via USB
Computer 3: (Known as Martha)

Laptop
Celeron 1.86 GHz CPU
512 Mb RAM
Vista Home Basic
802.11g Mini Card Wireless Adapter

Computer 1 is in the living room and is used for email/browsing/word processing/IM and other relatively low demand applications and is the most likely to be switched on, hence the Networked Drive being attached to it.

Computer 2 is primarily the hub of my Recording Studio (grand name for a cobbled together hobby type affair) but is also used for email etc. It is located in an outbuilding but is no more than 7meters from the router and gets signal and link strengths that rarely dip below 50% and more likely average 65%

Computer 3 is my wifes college laptop and is only really part of the network so she can use the printer attached to computer 1 and back up her files on the networked drive.

All 3 computers communicate.

The biggest problem is the data transfer speeds between Computer 2 and Computer 1.

Hello all, I've been pulling my hair out for two days about my wireless connectivity issues.

I'm running Windows 7 Pro, SP1 (32 bit). I've got a custom built machine with a Realtek 8185 Extensible 802.11 b/g wireless device. I've got a wireless networking modem through Centurylink, an Actiontec C1000A.

Previously at my old place, I had cable internet through a modem and used a router to connect my PC to the wi-fi. Never really had too many problems.

Now, I've got this new setup with a DSL networking modem and I've got problems galore.

The most common issue is that the PC connects, but it's "Limited Access" and it usually shows "unidentified network" with the public network icon. It also says No internet access. And I can't get online. I can't even see the modem. I've called tech support numerous times and we've tried tons of things. On a few occasions, we've managed to get the thing online. Twice it was the built-in WPS on the modem that got it connected. Once it was disabling and re-enabling the wireless adapter on my PC.

But every time I was able to get online, my speeds are terrible (1 mbps or less, and this is a 40 meg connection). And if something causes my PC to lose wi-fi, like a restart or something, I can't get connected again. Very inconsistent, and always at super low speeds.

I officially have no idea what to do and have exhausted numerous troubleshooting avenues. Here's a few things also that would help rule out certain caus... Read more

A:Connection Problems over Wi-fi "Unidentified Network", slow speeds

Are you sure that the modem is not one of those modem/routers combo units?

I believe the Actiontec is a combo unit... if you plugged your old router into this unit you need to plug from the LAN port on the Actiontec into the LAN port on your router "not WAN port", you will also need to turn off DHCP on your router and assign it an IP, usually in the range of 192.168.x.x depending on the default gateway and IP range of the Actiontec.

I'm just assuming that you plugged in your old router in or you wouldn't be having so many problems?

It would be helpful if I could see a screen shot of the ipconfig/all.

Hi. We bought this laptop yesterday and found that 5GHz wifi is very slow. The setup: LaptopLinsys WRT1900ACLG Nexus 5X On 2.4GHz everything works according to the Internet subscription - 30mbps/5mbps (down/up). On 5GHz, the phone still works accordind to the subscription,  but the laptop was about 4/3. We reloaded it and got 22/5 on 5GHz, but 2.4GHz is still 30/5. We tried many times and different spots but 2.4GHz always worked better than 5GHz.

The wifi status shows "Speed: 433 Mbps" and 4 bars in "Signal quality". Nexus 5X shows 866mbps and "excellent" on the very same spot.

H all

I recently bought a new router (Linksys E4200 dual band router). Set up. Connected wirelessly from my laptop successfully. Question is this... I am sure that I am connecting only on the 2.4GHz network and can't make the laptop connect on 5GHz.
The laptop is Sony Vaio S series. Wireless adapter is Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6200 AGN which (according to the Intel page) is a dual band adapter.
So, I have a dual band router, a dual band adapter but cannot connect to the 5GHz band.
When I look at the available WLANs in Network & Sharing, I can only see the 2.4GHz band (I gave the 5GHz band a different SSID, and this is not listed).
Running Windows 7 Professional 64 bit.
Apart from the puzzle over 5GHz, everything else is fine... can see all other network devices (SAN, printer etc...)
HOW do I see, select, force my system to use 5GHz?
Thanks!

A:Unable to see, select, use 5GHz network

Set 5GHz network as "Wireless-N only" instead of "Mixed", in router settings.
Works fine now.

HII have an HP envy bought in 2016. Just found out that it doesnt have a dual band adapter duet to which I am having issues at several places where I need to connect to wifi. How can I get this resolved, my machine is still under warranty . Secondly almost everytime I come into my home or office network my laptop fails to detect the wifi and I have to restart the machine to get online. This is very inconvenient. Can anyone suggest a way out. Has any of you with the same machine noticed that its a bit slow, even after being the configuration that it is. My old laptop boots and performs much faster.  Cheers 

A:Network Adapter not detecting 5Ghz

You simply identify the laptop as an Envy and there are lots of Envy models. Please specify yours. If your laptop does not have a dual band (5 ghz) wireless card the only way to get one is to replace your card and install a dual band card. That is not going to be a warranty thing it will be at your expense. As for the slow performance that is going to require a bit more information and troubleshooting.

first off im not real saavy with computers... obviously right.  i recently bought a dual band router.  its a netgear nighthawk ac 1750. i have it hooked up, but my computer doesn't recognize the 5 ghz band or its just not on the list of available networks.  when i go to the device manager under network adapters, it lists i have a qualcomm atheros ar9485 802.11 b/g/n wifi adapter. when i get into the settings of that i try and do an update and it comes back and says i have the latest update.  dont have alot of money to buy a newly updated computer that would probably and certainly work well with the new dual band router. just wondering if there is any other options besides buying another computer?  please help as i really don't know a heck of a lot about computers,however i am trying to learn.

Dear Community,

I am trying to get my XPS to connect to my 5 GHz home wifi network because there is far less interference and the speeds are therefore much higher. However, every time I try to connect, Windows 10 gives me the message Unable to connect to this network. The system can see the network but it refuses to connect. Other devices, such as my mobile phones connect to the network with no problem.
Here are my system details:

XPS 15 9550 (Skylake)
Win 10
Dell Wireless 1830 802.11ac Wireless Adapter (version 1.566.0.0)

When I set the same network (same router) to the 2.4 GHz band, the connection works without a problem. It seems that only the 5 GHz band is causing issues. I'm therefore guessing its an issue with the network card. However, I'm sure that it does support 5 GHz networks. Has anyone else encountered similar issues? Are there other drivers I can try?

I want to upgrade my home network to support HD streaming over Wifi. I am considering getting an 802.11ac router and replacing my laptops Wifi network card with one that supports the new Wifi 802.11ac standard.

On my home network I want to connect a TV set top box to the router over Cat6 but my laptop is the only device that will be connecting over Wifi. I have a Dell Inspiron 7520 laptop. It has an Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Wifi card which supports dual stream but only one band: 2.4Ghz.

It looks like my laptop only has two internal antenna cables and for this reason I am thinking I cannot avail of triple stream Wifi-N 450Mb/s + 450Mb/s on a simultaneous dual band N900 router. I am stuck with a theoretical max of 300Mb/s on 2.4Ghz under Wifi-N and/or 866Mb/s on 5Ghz under Wifi-AC.

Here are my questions:

1. If I get a simultaneous dual band router can my laptop stream an HD movie on the 5Ghz band and at the same time download say a Youtube video on the 2.4Ghz band? I ask that because I'd like to get a such a router and preserve every ounce of bandwidth on its 5Ghz band for streaming movies from the set top box to my laptop... not have to share it for web browsing needs.

2. Would it be a better solution, or even possible, to install a third internal antenna in my laptop and get a triple stream 802.11n class Wifi card (such as the Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300) and Wifi-N Class router OR should I buy an 802.11ac router and get the better bandwidth it offers...

A:Can my Laptop simultaneously connect to a 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz Wifi network?

You can stream HD movies fine at 150Mbps or even less but it depends on how much of the bandwidth is being used by your neighbors. This can be a big problem in some areas. You won't be able to use both frequency's at once.

Finding the best clean channels to use are what matters most on 2.4 GHz, channel bonding comes in handy sometimes but works best when the channels are mostly clear.

5Ghz is better in this respect because hardly anyone is using it so you tend to get all the bandwidth to yourself but the drawback with 5GHz frequency is that it won't go through walls worth a darn so it's really only useful for open area's outdoors or for large rooms.

I'm running the Asus AC66U router and the Asus PCI-e AC66 NIC which usually runs about 877.5-1.1 Gb. I can stream multiple YouTube video's while watching movies although I could also do this using the 2.4GHz frequency at 300Mbps.

This is worst purchase I've ever made. I bought this stupid laptop for approx. 1100$ and this although being i7 2.5GHz, 12GB RAM is slower than my previous i3 laptop. Like, it keeps hanging. And today I got to know that this stupid super expensive laptop cannot support the 5GHz frequency band for wireless network. So, I'll have to live with a slow internet plan of max. 30MBPS when the internet router gives 200MBPS as per my internet plan on 5GHz band. Also, I don't think this stupid laptop supports Bluetooth also. Hoping if anyone could let me know of ways to get these issues fixed(5GHz network and Bluetooth).
