Installed wireless router netgear =speed has gone

  SANAP 15:59 16 Dec 06

I am having my share of porblems with my netgear router dg834pn and I can make it work after a fashion but the speed has gone down from and initiala 3072 kbs to a miserly 1792. Can the isp provider be the cause of this or is it possible that if I have other phones and faxes connected will affect the speed??

Can't really offer any help, just a ??

Is this speed reduction when you are using the wireless function, or ethernet (wired) to connect to the web?

If wireless, are you close to the reciever, or are there obsticles such as walls or electrical things (like microwave ovens) between the pc/lt you are using to connect and the router?

Walls (and sometimes microwaves, though I would have thought this would only apply when they are operating), and distance can have dramatic affects on the connection speed.
