PostPosted: Tue Dec 20, 2005 4:33 am    Post subject: WRTP54G router...lagging in page requests?? Reply with quote Back to top

I recently got Vonage service and have a WRTP54G router now to replace our old Belkin 802.11g unit.

I've noticed now with the new router that it lags for 2-3 seconds before even attempting to bring up a page when the Belkin would just do it instantly. We're all connected wirelessly, but nothing has really changed as far as the network goes. All I did was switch out the router. Even if I'm the only one connected to the router, it lags.

It never seems to have problems with downloading or reaching my download/upload cap, but the initial fetch for data is slow in both FireFox and IE. I've even noticed the lag in Thunderbird. I even get the lag when plugged directly into the router with a CAT5 cable. What gives?

Any explanations??

Again, the only thing that has changed with our network is the router; going from a Belkin 802.11g to the WRTP54G. We've gone from instanteous page fetches to 2-3 second delays.

saw this posted on this site, and it worked great.

To speed things up on the main setup page Disable DNS Proxy, and the insert the DNS 1 & 2 address in the DNS1 and DNS 2 blocks. To get the DNS info, plug your computer directly to the modem (take the router out of the loop, After everything syncs. Go to the command prompt and type in: ipconfig /all . This will give you all the TCPIP info including the DNS addresses.

bman192k posted it on another thread.

That's it
Another good setting for DNS is any of the following:

4.2.2.1
4.2.2.2
4.2.2.3
4.2.2.4
4.2.2.5
4.2.2.6

Run a pingplot or tracert to each of the following, plus your local ISP-provided DNS servers, pick the fastest three, and plug them in

Yeah, the WRTP54G is a great Vonage device but isn't the worlds greatest router. DNS Proxy in the device is very poor and overloads/dies fairly easily. Kill it and have your client PCs do their DNS inquiries.

What should be in the standard setup directions for the WRTP54G:

1. Plug another router or a computer directly into your modem (powering down the modem, etc, in the process of course).

2. Connect said device to the Internet using your modem.

3. From a command line (if a PC), type "IPCONFIG /ALL" and note the results under DNS SERVERS (or get DNS server settings using whatever method you prefer). Should be two numbers there.

4. If you do not see two numbers, or you want to use public DNS servers, use two from the following set:
4.2.2.1 4.2.2.2 4.2.2.3 4.2.2.4 4.2.2.5 4.2.2.6
(note that your ISP's servers will probably be faster than these, but these can serve as a backup).

5. Go to the WRTP54G configuration screen. Under basic setup, change the following:

5A. DNS Proxy - Change to DISABLE

5B. DNS Servers - enter the DNS servers you gathered above. If you want, you can enter one of the 4.2.2.* addresses in the DNS Server #3, in case both of your ISP's servers are down some day.

6. Save settings, unplug everything, hook router to modem and PC to router, start modem first, then router, then PC.

Internet should now work. What this will do is make your PCs directly aware of the DNS servers on your network, rather than trying to use the WRTP54G as a DNS proxy. This saves memory on the WRTP54G for more important things, like Vonage calls.

I have implemented the "Disable DNS Proxy" solution. I am on firmware version 1.00.58. One thing I noticed is that if you don't fill in any of the dns servers as instructed in previous posts, the router passes the dns servers as received from the broad band service. This is ideal in case your provider changes the preferred dns servers. Just wanted to let everyone know that it may not be necessary to fill in the dns servers.

This is exactly the way it works...I find no need to manually enter any dns servers. Just leave it off.
