A few days ago I have installed a new network at home. I have been able to access the internet sometimes, though the performance has not been optimal.
- Internet Pages can take really long to load. When, during loading, I request the same page again, it appears within seconds.
- It is almost impossible to have a good Skype conversation. Even in the chat function it sometimes takes minutes before a message arrives on the other side.
When I ping to the DNS, sometimes none of the packages gets lost, but it also happens that also 50% or all get lost.
What is worse, is that sometimes I cannot access the internet. This morning I switched on everything and did not have internet. The config screens of the modem and router were accessible. I tried to ping to my ISP, but nothing happened.
When I plugged the cable of my modem into my computer, I had internet straight away.
ADSL Modem -----------------------> Wireless Router --> Client
192.169.10.x -- cable to LAN port-> 192.168.10.x ----> 192.168.10.x
ADSL Modem: D-Link 302 T
Wireless Router: Conceptronic
The modem has its DHCP switched on, the router has a fixed IP.
OS: Windows XP
Because I don't really know where to begin I haven't done much. What I did was:
- update firmware and drivers of the equipment
- disable the firewall (no noticable changes)
Does this sound familiar to anybody? Can somebody point me to a possible solution?
