    Internet Speed Issue

    Ok, I'm stumped by my internet issue. Maybe you can shed some light on it.

    Ping is averaging 11000ms, upload 0.01-0.07, download 0.2-0.4
    Here's the setup: AT&T modem --> Linksys Router --> 2 simple switches --> computers

    What I tried:
    1. I plugged in a laptop directly to the modem and speed is back to normal.
    2. I swapped out a cat 5 cable between the modem and router and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.
    3. I swapped out the router with a new one and speed was back to normal for a few minutes, then bad again.

    So the router is fine. I don't think it's the switches if everything is working fine for a couple minutes. Also, my wireless is fast and then bad again when I tried swapping stuff out.

    Any ideas?

    Try changing the cable between the computers and the switches. Or try changing the cable between the switches and the router

    I'll try that, but I don't think that's it because when i had my laptop connected directly to the modem, speeds were fine and then went bad again after a few minutes.

    so is it fine or is it normal or are these 2 different laptops?


    if they are not ...do you have another PC to plug directly into the modem?



    does not sound like the router.
