D-Link (dir-601) issues
by AndCamp - 1/11/13 2:59 PM
I bought this router about 2 months ago so I could have my computer and game system hooked up at all times. I chose it because it was cheap and I was specifically looking for something wired (this particular router can be wired or wireless). Before then, my connection-speed was pretty fast (Shaw high-speed connection).
Ever since it installed itself on my system it's been stuck on wireless by default and my connection-speed has slowed considerably since buying it (I've been dropped from matches while gaming due to poor connection-speed). I've tried to unhook it and use an older, wired router and I even tried to go back to connecting to the modem directly, but I found the computer refused to access the internet without the device.
I'm not exactly the most tech-savvy person in the world, so any help would be appreciated. What I'm looking to do is:
1. Force the router to be wired.
2. Improve connection-speed overall.
