Thread: wireless= very very slow downloads

  1. #1
    hi found this site through yahoo while searching for a problem i've been having, basically since installing my wirless network 2 weeks ago i've been having problems with download speeds on the two p2p programs that i use.. kazaa and emule, i now seem to be downloading at very low speeds considering i'm on 1meg bb, and thats if i'm lucky to be downloading at all.
    Before on my speedtouch adsl modem i would get max speed of 120kbs and have about 15 downloads at the same time, but now with my new wireless[linksy] i'm lucky to have 1 file downloading at 5 kbs , if i stay connected all night i might be lucky to have about 6-9 downloads totalling 20kbs on the go.
    does any one know what could be the problem?
    there doesnt seem to be a problem with my upload speeds, i set it to 10kbs and it's steady all night ,i've even tried 100kbs upload and it'll reach that speed no probs.

    I don't and have never used Kazaa or emule but I'd be willing to bet it has to do with port forwarding on your router.

    You could try port forwarding
    If that doesnt help maybe check the linksy forums. Maybe other people have had these problems with their router or wireless card/adapted. If not post your model number here. I'm sure someone around here is bound to have the same model you do.

    This page is for configuring for Emule... you will notice a lot of Linksy's Routers further down the page...choose your model..and follow all the instructions carefully

    ..and check your firewall for inbound and outbound connections
