My router linksys e2500 is in my living room.

I am using a wireless network adapter in my room.


When I first got the router the speeds in my room were >10Mbps
Suddenly last night they dropped to 4.5Mbps

I do not know why. There is no one else using the router nor anyone else using the internet except me.

I have tried changing the channels. Still no difference.

The computer directly connected to my router via Ethernet is getting full 20Mbps speeds.

My computer is not downloading anything at the time of these tests, this drop in internet speed has effected my gaming due to lags.

When I do a speed test on my optimus one android phone the speed are slightly similar.

I tried rebooting the modem and router. Still no difference.

This is often a difficult problem to solve, but it could be any interfering source on 2.4GHz. I've had issues in the past with wireless speakers and phones that slowed my computer network. Also, try different areas of the room to see if there is a dead spot in part of the room.

I'd also take a quick look at my router QoS settings to insure that gaming is set to high priority.

:non:  LOL

I actually had a real techfest day today. My GF is away on a Spring break trip so I upgraded the home phone system to a Panasonic 1.9GHz DECT 6.0 - 5 phone set to reduce interference today, also went to HD cable and 50Mbps (from 3Mbps) Internet. What a day!

I noticed that with the 2.4GHz wireless headset and speakers, and phone nearby in my bedroom my wireless speeds there were down from before those interference sources -- might be worth checking for you too.

Well I moved the router to into my bed room. Getting 10- 12 Mbps now.

I am surprised that a wall ( I live in an apartment ).


Basically the unit is like this

LIVING ROOM (ROUTER WAS HERE)||||||MY ROOM ||| OTHER BED ROOM


Those ||| represent walls.

I was getting 0.4Mbps when it was in the living room. And now I'm getting 10-12Mbps with the router in my room.
