Windows 8 very slow on 2Wire RG
I have a network that runs pretty well with fast load times on all devices. Have wireless laptops, android phones, and wireless printers all working well. My dad is visiting with his windows 8 laptop and the load times are almost unusable. I have used the laptop in other places and at his house and have no problems, but he can barely load google page here.
We are using the black RG, not the silver one anymore.
I added a WD mynetn900 in access point mode to see if that would help. I left it as WPA2 Personal security. It made no change. I then disabled security on the AP and get the same thing. I have not tried router behind router config yet to see if the NAT translation would help. I seems to only be his laptop with windows 8. Last year he was using the same laptop, but had Vista on it. We had no issues then.
Anyone have any ideas? I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but didn't see it in the search results...
I haven't tried ethernet connection or the router behind router, but will give them a shot. ethernet would be a test only since there is no port anywhere near where he is using his laptop. The Router behind router may help, but I didn't want to reconfigure the whole network to make it work.
