I am having network slowness .. err .. let me start from the beginning ..
 
I am on my Netbook:
PC: Acer Aspire ONE (D250 10.1")    //   CPU: Intel® Atom™ CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz   RAM: 1.0 GB  DDR2
Video Card: Intel® GMA 950 (256Mb)     OS:   Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3 (build 2600)
 
And since I am at my mom's for a couple days I brought my router my techie friend gave me for free and hooked it up to my mom's cable modem and our two computers. She has Windows 7 desktop computer.
 
This is her computer:
 
DELL Inspiron 350, Win7 x64

The router is:
 
D-Link WBR-2310 RangeBooster G Wireless Router ver. A1. 
http://support.dlink.ca/ProductInfo.aspx?m=WBR-2310#Spec
 
When I connect I am only getting speeds of 10Mbps..
 
I don't really know much about networks and this was my first time setting up the router (which my friend swore up and down would be easy but when I called him on this issue he said he didn't know and didn't have time to help me) but I did do a little research and went into the router page and the set up. Still no change however.
 
See?

Edit: Disabled UPNP and then checked here:

The icon I had by my clock saying I was getting 10Mbps is no longer there.

Have you ran a speed test from your computer and your moms.  Meaning is your Netbook the only one at 10MB?  Or are both?

For a speed test go to www.speakeasy.net

Select Speed Test, and pic the location furthest away from your current location.  Do this on both devices.  If they are testing the same then either the router or your ISP is the issue.

 

To help you here is a little info on using G type connections.

Why Is My 802.11g Network Running Slower Than 54 Mbps?

Neither 54 Mbps or 108 Mbps numbers fully represents the true speed a person will experience on an 802.11g network. First, 54 Mbps represents a theoretical maximum only. It includes a significant overhead from network protocol data that Wi-Fi connections must exchange for security and reliability purposes. The actual useful data exchanged on 802.11g networks will always occur at lower rates than 54 Mbps.

Why Does My 802.11g Speed Keep Changing?

802.11g and other Wi-Fi network protocols include a feature called dynamic rate scaling. If the wireless signal between two connected Wi-Fi devices is not strong enough, the connection cannot support a maximum speed of 54 Mbps. Instead, the Wi-Fi protocol reduces its maximum transmission speed to a lower number to maintain the connection.

It is fairly common for 802.11g connections to run at 36 Mbps, 24 Mbps, or even lower. When dynamically set, these values become the new theoretical maximum speeds for that connection (which are also even lower in practice due to the Wi-Fi protocol overhead described above).

 

Overall, if two device are using WiFi, and your device is the only one getting 10Mbps and the other is running at 100Mbps then we it could be configuration issue, bandwidth, or router firmware issues. 

Good luck

Have you ran a speed test from your computer and your moms.

This is the mom's PC net speed result:
 
Download Speed: 10460 kbps (1307.5 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 1948 kbps (243.5 KB/sec transfer rate)

That is my mom's.

 

I cannot run it on this 1.6GHz netbook as it only says this on the screen even though I just updated the Flash (twice) and restarted the browser and everything...

 

Thursday 03-Jul 2014, 12:53:16 PM       Your IP:

The Speakeasy Speed Test requires Flash v7 or higher.
Please update your browser.

Trying to find another speed test that I can run...

 

 

Trying:

 

http://www.speedtest.net = nope

 

http://speedtest.cogeco.net/ = no

 

http://speedtest.shaw.ca/ = no

 

http://www.bandwidthplace.com/ = yes

Testing speed with the SAME test that worked on the netbook.

 

This is the current net package my mom uses:

Compared to what I am used to when I am home at my place:

 

http://www.cogeco.ca/web/on/en/residential/internet/packages/compare/express_10-turbo_20/

 

Here are the results:

So with my mom here (She is home from work now) and me typing for her on her computer and hopping back on my netbook (is this allowed? She said I can post on her account on her behalf as she doesn't know this jargon and usually I type on my account from home .. not on her network) I tested both speeds.

 

I guess from these results and checking out (with her help) what her net plan is, I guess the speed is normal then?

 

I didn't do these tests before I Disabled the UPNP so I don't know if that made any difference.  I could still do further testing I guess by logging into the router's admin page and enabling UPNP again to see if that makes any difference. Should I? I will be back at my mom's tomorrow.

 

During my stay at my mom's this was my first time setting up a router so I did not know what to expect nor what is normal.
