Linksys Wireless Bridge (WET11) Speed Issue
Posted on 2004-11-06
Ok, I have been searching google for a solution for about 4 months now with no success so hopefully I can get this all sorted out. PS. hope I posted this in the right spot.
I purchased a WET11 Wireless Bridge.... Hooked it up to my network, and it worked fine. It did its job, and got my computer online. Well, after about 10 seconds of browsing the internet I noticed the stupid thing is giving me DIAL UP SPEEDS. I went to the status page, and it has 100% link quality, and I have a very fast broadband connection, so neither of those are the problem. At first the dumb thing was going at 3-10kb/s. So, I called up Linksys tech support, after goign through every single trouble shooting option they had, they told me to change the "Beacon Interval" on my wireless router to 50 from its default value of 100. This helped a tiny bit, but I am still only getting speeds of around 15-25kb/s. Linksys insists that this device should be able to run as fast as my network can handle (11mbps) but, yeah its not workin. Any Ideas?
