So heres the problem, we have cable at this house, and the speed when checked on just one computer directly hooked up to the cable modem is almost 12mb

When I have the computers hooked up to the router (2 via ethernet and 1 via wireless), the same computers speed test are less than 3. My wifes laptop (the wireless) comes in under 1 mb.


What am I doing wrong?

With my last set up, where it was just my wifes wireless and my computer hooked up via ethernet, both computers had very similiar speed test whenever I checked.

What I am wondering is, is the router splitting the signal somehow to each computer?

And should I do a complete fresh install with the router? Because what I did when we moved into this house was just hook up the router and because everyones internet connected immediately, I didnt give it a second thought.

TThe router is a Dlink DIR-655


Thanks for the help

Well now Im just totally confused....

So, I reconnect the router and check internet speed from my computer and my wifes and its both high.


I dont know why last night it was so ridiculously slow and today it was fine.


My only guess is that by resetting the modem that fixed some problems..maybe jeesh I dunno.
