About once a day my wireless router slows down dramatically. Any ideas on what's wrong or how to troubleshoot it?
In particular, the upload speed is killing me. Where I might normally get 40 Mbps down and 4 Mbps up, when I'm experiencing the problem it's more like 4 Mbps down and 0.1 Mbps up.
Restarting the router fixes the problem. I don't need to restart my cable modem.
It started happening immediately after I moved. Here are the significant factors that may have affected it:
- I work from home now, on my computer
- I use two connections, one landline over VPN, one wireless w/o VPN (both experience the same problem)
- I switched ISPs from Time Warner to Comcast (new service, new modem)
- My wireless router sits much closer to my wireless device (laptop) than it used to and behind a giant monitor (interference?)
I have Belkin N+ Wireless Router with the latest firmware installed (1.01.19).
