Default d-link DIR-100

Hello,

I have bought a D-link dir-100 (wired) but now is my internet very slow particulary with Internet Explorer, with Firefox it's better but not perfect.

Before I used only a switch wihout router and it was mutch better.

Is it a very slow router or wat can I configure in the router to make it faster?


Thanks

You should have read the subtitle to this forum,it's for woodworking routers.

I do wonder at some of these posters. The subtitle apart, none of the threads are anything to do with IT routing. If they are not picking up on that, they are going to have problems with any other diagnosis.

Cheers

Hi Peter:

Do you remember when you were a kid? The things we used to do. Now, we see the other side of the picture and boy we were just as dumb as the kids today. Too bad youth is wasted on the young.

Dear Jurgen,

Welcome to the Router Forum! I think that most of the users on this forum use routers that are wired with good quality SJ cord. (Those wireless routers just never seem to have enough juice.) I have to agree with you though--the RPMs really do slow down when you're trying to download some intricate dovetails on Internet Explorer. Since I switched to Firefox, my carbide-tipped router throughputs at at least 24K bits per second!

You might get by configuring your D-Link with an inexpensive set of high-speed bits from eBay, but if you really want to get any kind of performance from your router, you must turn the switch to the "ON" position. You'll be pleasantly surprised how fast that speeds up just about any router--but be sure to let that D-Link cool down after a long session with big files. ( I like those small triangular files best--they can get into tight places.)

Some of the folks here have been using their Craftsman routers even before the internet got started. Good luck.



Seriously, you might find some better information at:

Are D-link routers made in China?

.
Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.
