I have decided I am still going to try to fix my current router. I have a dsl modem which is connected to my wbr-1310 router. Whenever I try to download applications off of the internet my download speed is comparable to a dial-up connection, where I average between 5-15 KB/s. When I use my desktop, connected straight to the modem with no router, I get my normal download speeds. I have tried bringing my laptop closer to the router (within inches) but I still experience slow download speeds. I have already searched this problem up numerous times on google and I have read that the best remedy for WBR-1310's is to reset them. However, I discovered that when using p2p programs, I usually get the high downloads speeds. My problem may lie within my browser but the connection is slow for both Firefox and IE. I even tried K-meleon browser but that was successful either. Sometimes repairing the connection, via the wireless connection icon taskbar, gets the connection to work. In that same icon I always have the max 54Mpbs connection. Also my connection to the internet sometimes just spontaneously stops and disconnects. However, I can still connect to p2p programs. Sometimes I have to turn the router off then on to make the internet connection work. By the way, thanks for the suggestions. Any suggestions?
The Netgear routers look good from what I have searched so I will check them out the next time I visit my local Bestbuy.
