BGW210 - Slow Wireless
Back in March, I changed my service to switch my landline to a digital phone. I also got upgraded to the 50Mbps Internet service. When the technician switched me over, I got a new router, a BGW210. I previously had an NVG589 which had good wireless coverage.
The BGW210 has weak wireless coverage. It is much slower than the old router for all of my computers. I do have to have my cordless phone base directly connected to it and thought that was the problem. The cordless phone base uses the 2.4Ghz band. I shut off the phone base and handset and disconnected it and still had slow wireless.
I have a computer with a 5Ghz wireless network adapter and it was also slow. My main computer (desktop) was slow no matter which room I put it in. I got a 5Ghz band wireless network adapter for it and still have problems with videos stopping/starting, slow page loading in my browser and just general slowness. I am pretty sure the problem is with the wireless because:
1 - I did not have this slowness until I got the new router with my change in service,
2 - I connected the desktop directly to the router with a Cat5e cable and had fast speeds. This is not practical because I had to have it on the floor of the living room to do this.
Do I need my BGW210 replaced or do I need to buy my own wireless router and connect it to the BGW210?
Thanks in advance.
