I am having issues with my wireless adapter in Windows 7. It is a Linksys WRT54GS. I had no problems at all in Windows XP. I am on broadband and the router I am using is also the model number WRT54GS. It is currently running DD-WRT v24.
Here's what the problems are:
- If I open more than 4 tabs in firefox they load unbearably slow. If I let them each load it takes easily 2 minutes before they do if they do.
- My download speed from a reputable site (i.e. Cnet) is 10kb/s and MAY jump to 15 kb/s.
- My computer is no longer able to stream on a consistent basis to my Xbox360. It takes 2 minutes to open a folder with 5 - 10 video files in it and then takes 2 minutes to load one to watch. After that, I am lucky if the streaming remains steady as it decides at random times that it needs to do another 2 minute load.
- I have a printer hooked up to this computer and my dad sent a document to it today. It was a small document under 2 - 3 mb from my understanding and it printed very slowly, one line at a time before it stopped.
- If I try to access the router itself through this wireless connection it is slow to unresponsive.
I have tried many "fixes" I have found online that include the following:
- Re-install drivers for wireless
- Rollback the Realtek update for my Ethernet ports
- Disable RCB (I have reenabled it atm)
- Change the limitable bandwidth percentage to 0
- Disable Windows 7 firewall
- Disable IPv6
None of these "fixes" have done anything for me. I am running free AVG for my AV program and I cannot find anything that says it has a firewall. My computer specs should be listed in my name I believe but I can repost them here if anyone thinks that will help.
Hardwiring is not really an option as this computer is 2 floors below the router.
One other thing I have done is a speedtest.net report. Here it is: http://www.speedtest.net/result/633741108.png
Now, I ran the same test 1 MINUTE after I did that one on a laptop running Windows XP and the numbers were this:
Thanks for any help you could provide as I'm at wit's end.
