I have 3 computers, one desktop (my main computer) and 2 laptops. The issue happens with all of the computers but is more prevalent with the desktop. There had been no changes made to any of the systems prior to the issue. On the desktop I have Windows 7 and Vista, the laptops have XP and Vista and the issue is the same no matter what OS is being used.
There is no issue with a wired connection only wireless. There are also no problems with signal strength and the network speed usually stays at 54Mbps but never goes under 36Mbps.
Here is the list of things I've tried.
- updated all firmware/drivers for the router and adapters.
- changed ethernet cables
- tried every channel on the router
- changed the security on the router
- moved the router
- reset the router
- replaced the router and desktop adapter with new ones
- contacted the ISP (Comcast) who said things were fine on their end
I may have even forgotten a few things I've tried. The only thing that seems to help at all is unplugging the router for about 30 seconds and plugging it back in. After I do that my speed usually goes back up for a little while but at the most it only stays up for a few hours and then tanks again and stays low until I unplug the router again.
I'm at a total loss at this point. I've posted on other forums and asked people I know and no one seems to be able to figure out what's going on. Any help is greatly appreciated.
