Ok so I have a cable modem and I go at 10Mb/s all the time, but as soon as I plugged in my D-Link DIR-615 wireless router, and configured it from the ip address (, since i lost my CD, my internet speed decreased to 5Mb/s. Why is this happening?

Also, when I set it up, it asks for my type of internet connection: Static IP, Dynamic IP (DHCP),PPPoE, PPTP, L2TP. I dont know which one is my internet connection. I know its not a dynamic IP, so would i just select static IP?

Unless you are paying for a static IP and know it, it is unlikely that is what you have, I would select Dynamic. Your ISP should have a support page to help you set up your router and give you the correct settings. If you are unable to find the support page and feel comfortable sharing your ISP name we can likely help you get the setting info you need.
