PostPosted: Wed May 03, 2006 3:12 pm    Post subject: Linksys WRTP54G slow wireless fine hardwired Reply with quote Back to top

I just got and set up a Linksys WRTP54G from Vonage. As a Voip product, it works just find but when it comes to how it handles my internet connection there are some issues. I was hoping someone on this sight might be able to lend some insight on my problems.

I have cable internet with a 5MB advertised upstreem. When I connect my computer via Ethernet cable to just the modem and run a speed test, i get about 550K (right on the money for what i should be getting. The same is true when I connect my computer via Ethernet into my router. However, when I disconnect the Ethernet cable and attempt to connect wirelessly, I run my speed tests and get only 150K-200K (quite a drop off).

I have made sure my computer is connected "Excellent" and it is in line of sight about 6' away from the router. There are no cordless phones or microwaves in sight as well are no other SSID signals around. I have also tested the connection on ever channel available with no improvement. Also, according to the router setup page i have Firmware Version: 1.00.62 and that seems to be as up to date as it gets.

I spoke with what Linksys calls their support and they had me tweak my Beacon Interval from 100 to 50, my Fragmentation Length from 2346 to 2306, and my RTS Threshold from 2347 to 2307. Sadly none of that has done anything. They also had me change my MTU from Auto to manual and set it down at 1450 and then when that did not help to 1428 (also no help).

Does anyone know what this issue may be due to and how to perhaps fix it? Thanks very much for taking the time!

Spent over an hour online with Linksys and they finally told me that perhaps a new firmware update is required from Vonage.

My centrino laptop cannot connect to my WRTP54G router. I've tried the default settings, custom settings, everthing.

My laptop can connect to my prior D-link router and a half-dozen unsecured routers in my apartment building. I'm no expert, but I have setup probably 4-5 wireless routers for friends and myself over the years.

I have no idea why I can't establish a wireless connection with the router -- any suggestions?!

I had the same problem, but only on windows. So now I just use Mac & Linux. I never found a solution for this.

I have the exact same problem. See thread below.

I'm going to try to get Vonage to swap this thing out on warranty.

Could the speed drop off be a result of an incompatibility b/w the wireless card and the wireless router when set to auto negotiating mode? What if you manually set the speed instead of auto negotiating the speed? Would that change anything? Just a thought since tweaking the router settings didn't seem to yield any desirable results. Just something to think about.

I tried this. No dice. I've honestly spent countless hours trying to fix this. I've tried everything I can think of, including OS reloads, new routers (same model), updated firmware of devices & routers, multiple wireless nics, changed every single setting on the router and the wireless driver. Nothing works.

In my case, the card and the router get along fine. I've got a verified 54Mbps connection going. I've tried two computers with two different 802b cards and a laptop with 802a Centrino. Exact same results for all three.

It's the router's wireless processing that is screwed.

i've heard some bad stuff about these linksys routers that Vonage sells but this is the first time i've heard really bad things about the wireless capability. of course, not many people have 5 Mbps upload speeds either so they probably don't ever see such speeds hence no limitations.

it's too bad. the wired connections seem to be tolerable. sorry to hear about this.

More bad news... Recently my wireless speed started to suck even on my Linux and Mac machines. I've been troubleshooting it all morning. Nothing works. Time to toss this heap of crap router in the trash. I tried a different Linksys router and everything works fine.

I just called Vonage to see if they would exchange my broken router for just a plain old phone adapter. They won't do it. Time to evaluate other options. Has anyone used other providers? Do any of them have customer service that doesn't suck like Vonage?
