    Ah, the WRT120N is still on the lower end. The fact that the WRT120N helped shows how weak the router's Wifi is.


    What is the exact model number?

    It's exactly as I said. Go into the modem's configuration page and then disable the Wifi feature. Then connect a Wifi router (like your linksys) and use...

    No guarantees. Solid walls will block the signal, even if you get stronger antennas.


    You would need to check with your ISP (Telmex).

    So you're using Wifi off of the modem? Make/model of your...

    NO. Even if the ISP was ok with it, you can only have one DSL data stream per line.

    Sounds like you set the default program for pdfs to Firefox. You need to go into your normal pdf app and associate it with pdf. Otherwise, you can set the pdf file association from the OS.

    The other thing we didn't bring up is the modem. Did you check with Comcast if it is approved for 100mbps? I couldn't find any info on an arris t882 modem.

    Ok. I went back and reread the posts.

    If both the desktop and laptop were using wired connections and only getting 42mbps, then it could just be old hardware. Fast Ethernet (100mbps) should have...

    Hmm. I was under the impression that his desktop was the wired one, not the laptop. If the wired connection on the laptop is getting 42, then I'd agree.

    42 is what is he getting now. His max connection is 100mbps (theoretical). He wanted to get closer to 100.


    The only way to get closer to 100mbps would be to upgrade the hardware. Whether it is...

    The Inspiron 1501 only has 802.11g, so it won't be able to hit 100mbps on a wireless connection. It does have a 10/100 fast ethernet wired connection, though.

    If you want 802.11n speeds, you'd...

    Wow. That's pretty cheap. n300 is an entry level 802.11n router, but it should do.

    Note that you also need 802.11n wireless network cards on your PCs. If you have an 802.11n router but only...

    802.11n and ac are WIRELESS standards.

    The FD5-7324-4 has 10/100 wired ports, so that shouldn't bottleneck your connection.

    For the router, do you mean a FD5-7324? If so, that that's only a 802.11g router. You need an 802.11n or 802.11ac router to get higher speeds. 802.11g is limited to a theoretical 54mbps, which...

    And you're sure that's the correct MB model #? Did it come out of an OEM system?

    They don't usually add features, so a BIOS update probably wouldn't help anyway.
