    Netgear Help

    I have a Netgear DG834G and I want to replace it as I feel it is not giving us our full net speed etc. I was looking at a Netgear Rangemax model as I have been told AOL only runs properly with Netgear routers, my OH wants a model that lets the IP address change the same as the DG834G has been doing.....Any suggestions?

    All models should handle dynamic IPs as 95% of ISPs use them.

    Does plugging one of your PCs into the router with an ethernet cable improve the speed or is it the internet sync speed rather than the wireless speed that you feel is too low?

    It is the internet speed on a whole, we have a pc plugged in with ethernet cable and 2 wireless but its the speed on a whole. We live 10 metres from the telephone exchange so its not distance from it that is affecting our speed :?

    What is your sync speed? Have you had BT check your line for error? I would say router would be the last thing i would be replacing before i had tried all the other options i.e. line fault, faulty filter, external interference etc

    the older 614 netgear gives me constant 20mb sec 24/7.

    got to agree there and no matter how close you are to the exchange there are severe limits imposed on 99% of providers up-speed to the exchange over dsl.
    This is usually 448K, divide that by 3 machines figure in network over heads and the collisions on the network and you are probably tied to close 70- 85k per machine uplink.
    you want more speed get 2 more lines, but even if you go with bt they will still compete for bandwidth at the exchange
