    Hi, i recently changed my internet service provider from tiscalli to virgin. virgin
    gave us a new netgear router. thier are four dsl cable slots in this router. the main
    dsl cable which is connected to the main computer works fine, the internet is extremely fast and
    reliable.

    now instead of using a wireless connection for other computers around the house, we have
    longer 30 meter dsl cables connected from the router to other computers around the house, but now with the new isp and new netgear router the internet is extremely slow for other computers around the house.

    theres nothing wrong with the dsl wire as it was working fine with our old isp and our old netgear router just yesterday. thier also cannot be nothing wrong with the isp and router as the internet works really fast on the main computer.

    please any suggestions as weve paid our first month for virgin broadband. thanks.

    i have a Netgear CG2100D router for my new virgin media internet. the internet is very slow for other computers around the house, the main computer is fast. we use 3 dsl cables connected from the router:


    • 1st dsl: connected from the router to the main computer - FAST AND RELIABLE
    • 2nd dsl (30 meters): conntected from the router to a computer in another room - SLOW LOADING
    • 3rd dsl (30 meteres): connected from the router to a computer in another room - SLOW LOADING.

    the main computer internet is very fast. the other dsl cables from this router to other computers
    around the house has very very slow internet loading. we know theres nothing wrong with the dsl cables as it was working fine yesterday with our other netgear box via tiscalli broadband.

    please can you help as weve paid the first month with virgin media. thanks.

    What speed are you actually getting on PC1? Don't believe the 20Mb Virgin promised when they signed you up - check it at http://www.speedtest.net. Also, is PC1 downloading something large when PCs 2 and 3 are slow to load or is this happening all the time?

    Thirdly - are those 30 metre cables the same specification as the one to Pc1, which Virgin doubtless supplied with the router?

    Also got to the device manager and network adapters and then update the driver for each PC and Network adapter - if you look through the network forum - you will see a couple of speed issues , where one PC worked faster that another - that the updated driver fixed
