We installed a new wireless router ( TENDA AC18 1900 ROUTER) to handle the routing behind our FIOS Actiontec MI424WR modem router. I now have 2 subnets with 2 DNS servers. I now seem to have a big delay accessing drives on the other computers on my Windows network. Could this be causing a problem?

If by dns server you mean the gateway address, well that's not the best dns server to use.

Assign specific dns servers in the dhcp scope


I also doubt that is what is causing the delay

most likely just bandwidth... your accessing drives over wifi can be slow... plug them in to the router and youll be accessing the drive much quicker.


DNS just resolves names.. if you still think its that then browse to the share with the IP and notice the speed will be the same.
