I have quite the head-scratcher this morning. My old wireless d-link router died two weeks ago so I decided to buy the wireless-N Monoprice router. While I was waiting for the shipment to get here, I plugged in an another old D-link router (non-wireless) which worked just fine over ethernet.
I've received the new router a week ago, but after installation, I was getting a very slow wired internet speed. My home network was working just fine but the internet was slow. I did not even screw with the wireless... I asked Monoprice about it, and after some questions, they just RMA'd it.
So yesterday I got the new unit. And, behold, same problem: slow internet over ethernet but fast network over ethernet. I've also tried the wireless (which is what I'm using right now with my second computer) and, very suprisingly, everything is going great: fast internet, fast network. I've tried some torrents and I'm getting FULL speed. I've also tried the wired ethernet on another computer (same network) and it also browses slow as hell.
So, I'm stumped...
d-link non wireless router: fast speeds.
monoprice wireless router:
- internet over wireless: FAST
- network over wireless: FAST
- network over ethernet: FAST
- internet over ethernet: SLOW (dial-up speeds...)
Thanks for any help...
