Broadband speed has decreased to 10Mbps

November 14, 2010 at 08:34:37
Specs: Windows XP, Intel Core 2 Duo/ 2gb
For last two months my Lan as well as Broadband speed ws 100Mbps, but now Broadband speed has reduced to 10Mbps. My motherboard's[ASUS P5GC-MX/1333]Lan IC was burned recently, I repaired it from ASUS service center, and since then it is giving this problem. Now I can connect to net only when I give IP 192.168.0.1 and Media type as 10Mb Half Duplex.
Connection speed 256kbps, Intel Core 2 Duo

You broadband speed was never 100 Mbps, just beyond the realms of possibility at the moment. You quote your connection speed as 256kbps which is an extremely low broadband speed.

The speeds you quote are your LAN speeds which is a completely different thing altogether.

If you are using a IP address of 192.168.0.1 then I take it you are behind a router. If you can only connect at 10Mps half duplex then there is something wrong with your network interface or it is mis-configured. Set it to Auto and the same in the router and they will both negotiate the best speed possible which should be 100 Mbs Full duplex. But your broadband speed will still be 256 kbps.

Well I dont have a router. I have a cable connection that is directly connected at the rear of my CPU.
If I set my media type to Auto then I cannot connect to Internet.
How can I check that there is no problem with my hardware?
Earlier I used to get 100Mbps but since my motherboard crashed I am not getting 100Mbps

I think you will find you do have a router as well as a Modem even if you don't know it. 192.168.0.1 is a private IP address. To connect to the Internet at all using that address something must translate it from your public IP address and that is a function of Network Address Translation in a router.

Are you in a property that comes with an Internet connection supplied by the owner of the property. If so, it is they that have the router and Modem. You may need to speak to them.

You can check the network interface by going into Control Panel > Network Connection and selecting Local Area Connection. From there you can check and configure your network interface.

Something wrong or way old with your nic. Get a cheap usb nic and try it.. Like $5 or so.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?
