Wifi router slow

I have a D-Link DIR-826L wifi router and am getting slow speeds and frequent disconnections. I've used this in other networks at high speed and without issue - at college, while traveling, friends house - never had a problem. However with Spectrum I usually get less than 1 Mbps, occassionally up to ~2 Mbps. (Am writing this by tethering to my mobile broadband, which is more usable.) When connected to cable directly get ~40 Mbps.

 

Are there special router settings that Spectrum expects in order to get proper performance? Or are third party routers throttled so that we rent their one?

Re: Wifi router slow

router should be set to autodetect WAN settings.

It must be reset to factory defaults first.

 

 Copy and paste the modems signal level and error log pages.

What model is it?

Re: Wifi router slow

Yeah I had already reset to factory settings and auto-detected - still same connection speeds. Model is D-Link DIR-826L.

 

Oddly the upload speed is much higher at 10 Mbps.

Looks like this was once off - now getting < 1 Mbps upload speeds.

 

Copy and paste the modems signal level and error log pages.

Copy from where?

Depends on the modem...probably 192.168.100.1 or 192.168.0.1, and wifi speeds are not throttled to get you to use a leased router. Are you having the same issue when a device is direct connected to the modem?

Re: Wifi router slow

I get ~40 Mbps when connected directly to router.

 

I found a log page on the router - is that useful?

Re: Wifi router slow

Tried updating the router firmware to latest version and now getting reliable connection at ~40Mbps!
