Belkin N600 DB Router internet speed issues!

Posted by

Message 1 of 10

I have a Cisco DPC3008 modem and a Belkin N600 DB router to have wireless connection in my house. I also use ethernet cables from the LAN ports on the router to connect my Xbox, PC and Wii U to the internet.

 

I have been running http://stage.results.speedtest.comcast.net/result/238383782.png I with the help of the Comcast Chat Help ran a speed test with my PC hooked directly to my modem and was getting 11ms ping/71-80+Mbps down/10-12Mbps up to the same server!

 

Why would my Router cause such a "bottle kneck" and I loose so much speed just from running LAN line to my PC.

 

If I need to get a new router I will

Thanks for responding ! Sounds like that is an implementation of QoS principles.

Thanks to BiGxChucK who solved my issue with "xfinity blast" as well. This may not be a Comcast problem after all I've sent an email to Belkin support (as this is a router feature) Lets wait and see.

 

Steps to disable:

From router management page: (i.e. like http://192.168.2.1)
Media Features ==> Intellistream ==> Click disable ==> Apply

 

I was getting ~20Mbps. Now its blasting at 60Mbps Smiley Wink and upload went from 2 to 11Mbps

 

My router details: Belkin N750 N+ Router (F9K1103)

Yeah don't enable Intellistream. Basically what is supposed to do is give your devices equal upload and download speeds so that not one device has the upper hand on download/upload but in fact it's really a lousy feature that will cause you to get slow speeds. Sometimes the speedtest feature that is supposed to measure ping, upload and download won't even work. When I did run it one time it gave upload and download speed of 10mbps. Basically it's supposed to be a traffic control for your router but it definitely slows performance so don't use it

I also have an N600 DB router, and yesterday got the call that Triple Play customers like myself have been automatically upgraded to 105 Mbps in my area. I did all the modem reset that was instructed, and was disappointed to see my speeds still capped out at 20 Mbps. I was supposed to have been at 35 Mbps before! I would point out that you can do a speed test using http://speedtest.net/ or http://speedtest.comcast.net/, and manually enter those numbers on the Intellistream configuration screen. Do make sure to have Intellistream disabled before you run the tests. In my use of those services, I saw up to 91 Mbps up/25 Mbps down yesterday and earlier this morning. It varies considerably, though. Right now I'm seeing 38 Mbps up/20 Mbps down. In the end, I'm disabling the Intellistream QoS feature. It might make sense in some households, but in mine I don't think it matters. I don't like wondering if my router is somehow throttling me.
