I hope I can explain this so you are able to get the picture. My first time here.

 

1 HP Vista Desktop-64bit

1 Toshiba Laptop-64 bit

1 D'link 4 port cable router (EBR2310)

1 Cable Modem Cisco DPC 2100  (Time Warner-lease)

 

Individually either of us has excelent browsing speed (est.20/0.97 Mbps) but it seems to be a Bandwidth jamb up, for lack of the ptoper term.

 

BUT

We can't be opening browser pages at the same time or one of us gets notices.

"server Not Found", "This web page not available", or "waiting for" and then "Browser Timed out".

 

A lot of dropped Packets when this happens.

(sample of other user "INFO] Thu Feb 14 10:52:46 2013 Dropped packet from 192.168.0.106 to
74.125.130.191 (IP protocol 6) as unable to create new session

 

So we have learned to wait a little until the other user finishes a page load and then jump in to take they'er turn.

The router is up to date on the Version and software.

All lights fash the way they are designed to flash and every test I can do I have done, including a number of power reboots etc, short of using the old HAMMER method, which was good for old dad.

 

In your expert opinion should I blow for a better quality router, exchane the Modem (they will just open a cabint and grab somone eles returned modem) for another hand-me-down or buy my own modem and hope it lasts for the money it costs.

 

I very rarely ask for help since most answer are on the Internet somewhere.

 

What's you think? Thanks.lmfao.gif

You say the router has the latest firmware. Have you tried a factory reset on it?

 

Otherwise, I'd try a new router next.
