Greetings, It's always something. Re: Desktops, Windows 7 and Vista and three Laptops all Windows 8. The two desktips and on laptop are hard wired to the Router which is a D-Link DIR-826 (Dual Band N600). We were sailing along until about a week ago and then it is like somebody put the brakes on. Getting on line and navigating couldn't be any slower. None of the units have had anything new installed. I had a session with D-Link last night and upgraded the Firmware. When I got done with that, I went on line and my home page appeared immediately and when I went to my e-mail (Yahoo), it loaded very quickly as well. Then we reverted back to the same slow condition. I have contacted my carrier (Cox) as well and we went thru a couple of resets on the modem and again, got that same fast download as well and then it reverted to the same slow condition.
During the contact with D-Link, it was necessary to access the system by typing in the IP address in my IE browser today, I tried it and it won't go. I get "this page cannot be displayed and when I trouble shoot that, I get; Website (IP address) is on line but isn't responding to connection attempts. hardware changes might not have been detected.
Numerous ping and speed checks have been all over the map. The last one I took showed: ping 1131, download ..18 mbps and upload; .03 mbps.
