It's either defective or has very old firmware. What version firmware is this?
Ok, I have searched for an answer, but cant find one elsewhere so i may as well ask. I bought one of these netgear router's from a friend, not expecting it to be great. I have my PC wired to it atm, because when its wireless it only seems to get around 500kbs download speed, i tested it on speedtest.net. My wired connection gets 11000kbs, so i think there is a problem there. But more pressing is the fact that now whenever me and my brother's computer are both wired into the router, it drops both our internet connections every 3 seconds or so, saying on the computers that a cable was unplugged. On the router, the 1 and 2 are lit, displaying that those two slots are connected, when internet drops, all 4 LEDs light up and then go out. Then 1 and 2 light back up, then all 4, etc. If either PC is plugged in by itself, it works fine.
Anyone else know whats wrong with my router/pcs? And it wasnt doing this initially, before i bought wireless card.
