Windows 7: Incredibly SLOW download & High Ping!!

Incredibly SLOW download & High Ping!!

I just purchased a new Asus netbook a few days ago and I am very disappointed in the extremely slow download speeds and incredibly high ping.

I have been looking all over the net and I have tried a bunch of things to fix the issue but to no prevail. I was hoping someone on this forum could help me before I end up returning this thing .

Here is my speedtest with my netbook with a WIRED connection... Notice the download and upload speeds are where they should be, but the ping is still high.


Now here is my speed test on WIRELESS... Notice the upload speed is where it should be, but the download speed and ping are WAY off....



SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME I get normal ping and download speeds on other PCs and laptops hooked up to the same network!

The netbook has a Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter, when I goto status is says it runs at 72.0mbps

The network is on a Linksys Router WRT150N Wireless-N.

I never had a problem with my old laptop that ran windows XP, download speeds were fine.

I hope this is the information you were asking for, if you need anything else let me know.
Thanks for the attempt

I looked it up, and the 802.11n specs. Seems to me that your wireless router has some sort of problem.

But I am still checking something............

Your netbook supports 802.11n but your router does not, see the review here;

Linksys WRT150N Wireless-N Home Router Review - Routers - CNET Reviews

<http://reviews.cnet.com/routers/linksys-wrt150n-wireless-n/4505-3319_7-32327689.html?tag=content;get-selector#reviewPage1>

It only supports 802.11g.

QUOTE
The Linksys WRT150N Wireless-N Home Router goes against the grain of new routers providing faster throughput, and for good reason. Linksys designed this router for those home users who want improved range over standard 802.11g routers, but don't want to pony up the cash for one of the new Draft N routers, either because of sticker shock, or because they simply don't need the speed and bandwidth that 11N products provide.

I would think that is your problem.

I found this in an update I am receiving... does this mean that it will support 802.11n?

Updated to Draft 802.11n version 2.0

Looks like it. Install the update and try it.

It wont work properly unless it meets the "11n" standards, if the update provides them then you should have no more problems.

Well the update didnt work, could you maybe tell me my options?

Because the only 1 i see is buying a new router that supports 802.11n?

Im also confused because when I scroll over my internet connection in the bottom right it says im connected to a 802.11n connection.
But when I goto the surrounding networks(neighbors) they are listed as 802.11g connections. what does this mean?

Thanks in advance .
