Ok not sure where this would go, so I'll post it here.
I have a Linksys WRT 110 router that I use.
I have two computers hooked up to it, both are WIRED. Nothing on the wireless, no printers no devices etc.
Now to the problem.
Let me start of by saying Linksys is a being a piece.......
They said my product was not under warranty, so I'm like W.e. so I can't get it replaced. Turns out that also applies for ANY tech support whatsoever. So I can't get help from them cause I ain't paying 29.99. I was like WTF why do I have to pay, it's NOT MY FAULT it broke. The lady was like maybe it is, maybe you whacked it with a hammer.
I was dumbfounded, why in the world would I break something that I desperately need, that I payed for, and that is vital to my family?????
So now actually to the problem.
Ok I have Comcast so I pay for 20 Mbps download.
I do get that speed. Problem is it drops.
I'll have 20 Mpbs, and then just browse the internet or play some COD MW2 and then if I run the same speed test with the same host the speed drops. If I keep doing this it just keeps dropping until the speed becomes unbearably slow.
Then I take the router and simply unplug it, wait a bit, and plug it back and the speed is back at 20!! Then the process simply repeats. But I can go on COD and play a few games before the lag starts and I have to restart my router or the game is unplayable. Sometimes even if my speed is 20 Mbps the game still lags and I have to repeat the process, only then does the game work.
I'm completely stuck.
Here's how my network goes.
The cable goes from my Modem, to my Vonage Modem (VOIP) then to my router where the two cables from it go to my PC and my dad's.
Idk what to do, I've restarted the router countless times (Sometimes it'll work good for hours, other times I can't fix it and just walk away, and it fixes itself later on)
I've restarted it, reset it, I did not update firmware IDK how.
I've clicked the button on the front middle of it, IDK what it does. I just don't know what to do!
Help please. I'll give more info if needed.
