Hello, I have a Belkin N+ Wireless Router (F5D8235-4) and the loading times when I'm on the Internet is slow. I've tried using Firefox, Chrome, Opera but the loading is slow on every browser. I've updated my router to the latest firmware and the following are my router's settings:

Wireless Channel: 8
Extension Channel: 4 (12 is an option)
Wireless Mode: 802.11n only (other options on the list: 802.11g&802.11b, and 802.11b&802.11g&802.11n)
Bandwidth: 20/40MHz (20MHz only is an option)
Broadcast SSID is checked
Protected Mode is OFF
WMM is Enabled

I know that a lot of you are going to tell me to change my router's channel to 6. My router's channel was 6 but I changed it after I found out that a lot of my neighbors routers are set to 6, and I read that it's better to choose a channel that isn't chosen by a lot which is the reason my channel's set to 8. But any information is greatly appreciated! :)

Hello and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums and sorry you've had to wait a couple of days for a reply.

Can you run a speedtest to find out if it's your ISP which is at fault? Try this site http://www.speedtest.net then click on Forum Link and post it back here by using Copy and Paste.
