What's up duders! I just wanted to see if anyone who owns a Belkin N750 DB has experienced network slowness? My wired connections are normal cable speed, but wireless devices are seeing extremely low download speeds. I have updated the firmware to the latest version and have rebooted the router just to see if this would resolve the issue. However, no go. Any suggestions, or anyone out there who has experienced this in the past? It all just started happening a few days ago. Thanks!

Someone said on Amazon that a long password may slow down your wireless connection. I have no idea if that's true or not but if you're having problems anything is worth a shot.

Here's what it says on the support page.

My wireless network performance is slow, inconsistent,

suffers from weak signal, or I’m having difficulty maintaining a

VPn connection .

Wireless technology is radio-based, which means connectivity

and the throughput performance between devices

decreases when the distance between devices increases.

Other factors that will cause signal degradation (metal is

generally the worst culprit) are obstructions such as walls

and metal appliances. Note also that connection speed may

decrease as you move farther away from the Router.

In order to determine if wireless issues are related to

range, we suggest temporarily moving the computer

within 10 feet from the Router if possible.

Changing the wireless channel—Depending on local

wireless traffic and interference, switching the wireless

channel of your network can improve performance and

reliability. See the section titled “Changing the Wireless

Channel” for instructions on how to choose other channels.

@ChadMasterFlash: Hmmm.....I actually DO have a very long and complex password. I will see if that solves the issue, however the password has been the same since I configured the router about six months ago. Thanks for the suggestion though, definitely will try that when I get home tonight.

Will do as soon as I get home tonight. Sorry, I should have posted this while still at home. I get home around 6:30PM EST.

WTF, now everything is lickety-split fast as fuck. I don't understand. I'll have to monitor the speeds for the next few days. Thanks all for your help.
