Solved Internet Problem when connecting through TP LINK router

HI

I am having trouble with internet when I connect through the Router by Ethernet or wireless. When I connect directly through the modem it works fine but when I connect through the router whether by ethernet or wireless it doesn't work properly and is very slow. I have a desktop connected by Ethernet through the router and a laptop connected wirelessly and both work the same way VERY SLOW and when connected directly to the modem both work at lightening speed.

What may be the problem?

HELP PLEASE!

I'm starting to think that it's the router itself. Can you borrow a router to see if you have the same problem?

For a start, reset the router to default settings.

I did reset the router to factory default but I have the same issue. The internet is very slow through the router. I changed the SSID and also the password.

When I am connected through the router the download speed I get is 2000B/s (B/s) and when connected directly through the modem I'm getting my usual speed which is 400KB/s

Alright now it sometimes works and sometimes not. What could be wrong. Is it the router.

So now, you're getting decent speeds some times but not others? Does it happen to be a Motorola Surfboard modem with a USB connection besides a cat5? If it is, connect a USB cable too.

The modem I'm using is a Webstar modem and I don't use the USB interface. I only use Ethernet. Internet is fine when I connect modem directly to computer through ethernet but when the router is in between it is giving this problem even when I connect the router to computer through Ethernet. My laptop Wi-fi is off so it does not use any bandwidth and I am only using Ethernet to solve the problem.

I did everything I could and also updated the Firmware of the Router. My router is TP-Link TL-WR940N.

Turn off everything & reboot in the following order: Modem, router, all devices.

Wait a minute or two after each one.

When did the problem start? Did the router ever work well? How many TVs are in operation & how many splitters exist? Did the problem start after something was changed?

The router was working perfectly and I've been using it since the last 2 years and only recently its started doing this. Nothing has been changed. The desktop is the same since 3 years and also all devices attached to it are the same. It started about a week ago out of nowhere/

Reboot everything in the order that I described. If that doesn't work, download & run TCPOptimizer version 3.0.8 from:

http://www.speedguide.net/downloads...

Run it with the router connected.

Alright I did what you said but no use. It got better though now I'm getting around 250-300KB/s which is still lower then my usual speed which is 400-450KB/s. Also when speed reaches 250-300KB/s it stays there and then drops to around 100Kb/s and doesn't come back up.

There are still no problems with the internet when I connect the modem directly. I was going to call my ISP but stopped because if it was a matter with my internet then it shouldn't be running properly when I connect the modem directly.

Boot to safe mode with the router connected & check the speeds. Let's see if there is a difference.

No, it wasn't he router. I borrowed it from a friend and it had the same problem. I just came home today, I was out of city and now everything's fine. The internet is working alright now.

Thank you so much for your help and time.
