My brothe has been having lag problems on a MMO and we figured it was his Internet but I went over today and brought my laptop. We did speed test on his computer and he got 2 Mbps. We then did one on my laptop with the built in router connected and I got the correct 15 Mbps. I then installed his router to my laptop and my speed dropped down to 3 Mbps too.
This is a new router so I shouldn't be going bad already. Any ideas what might be causing the router to not pick up the full signal? --- Open eyes are useless if the mind behind them is closed. 3DS FC: 3222-5762-5282

Mass production consumer electronics, doesn't matter if it's new or not, some will be broken out of the box. My advise would be to make sure that QoS is disabled, perform a factory reset, and make sure that it's connected directly to a good power source. If all that fails, then return it. --- i5 firstname.lastname@example.orgGHz, Antec Kulher H2O 920, SLI EVGA GTX670's, GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD3H, 2x4GB Kingston HyperX Genesis, XFX Pro750W Core PSU

Quality of Service. It's a method to distribute a functional amount of bandwidth to each device on a network, so that one computer doesn't hog it all. --- I have very little time for the Internet now and I'm not even a millionaire yet. - Krycek18
