Internet Download Speed is Low With Belkin Router

Post by Thomas »

I have a Belkin Wireless AC Modem/Router. It seems that my downloads, especially from YouTube, are very slow with the Belkin router in the network. I get a higher download speed without the Belkin router in the network.

What are the optimum settings for this unit? I have a MacBook Pro and a Mac Desktop. Both seem to suffer from the same problem on this router. I use Exetel ADSL2+, and the current bandwidth reading is 129.70kbps. It should be much faster. I think the Belkin AC router is reducing the Internet download speed.

Belkin AC Dual Band Router Upload Speed is Very Less

Post by KE JIA »

I have successfully configured the Belkin AC 1200 DB Wi-Fi Dual-Band AC+ Gigabit Router. I can connect to the Internet, and the download speed is quite fast, but the problem is that its upload speed is very slow, almost close to 0.

Internet Connection Issues After Connecting a Belkin Router

Post by Alex George »

Make sure the Belkin Router has the latest firmware version. If not, update the firmware and check whether it improves the connection speed.

Another solution is to change the current wireless channel and check whether the speed improved.
