Hi! I think the easiest solution is to remove your old router from the equation if you want high speeds. No matter where you put it in your network configuration, the minute the data hits your old router you will go no higher speeds than that routers capable of. Removing the old router from your setup fixes the bottleneck. This will also make configuring the new router easier. However, depending on your knowledge of networking and ip addressing you can still use that routers as a repeater or switch if you run out of ethernet ports so I wouldn't throw it away. Just make sure you understand how to configure everything before you start mixing two routers into one network.
Hi all. Ive recently upgraded my internet speed on TWC from 50mbs to 200mbs and i hardly notice a difference. Im very green as far as IT goes so i am most likely missing something. My current netgear router will give me 108mbs according to ookla speedtest so i just ordered a 300mbs TWC approved router (motorola mb7420) which will be hooked up to my netgear N600 wifi router. Is there anything you can recommend to improve the performance of my home wifi. We stream netflix, youtube, wwe, and other sites.
the issue we see is if we fast forward through a movie we see high buffering time. Also my internet hung up last week during wrestle mania, and my wife has seen long buffering times when watching shows on youtube.
