    Default Need Help. Very high ping rates leading to slow interent connection.

    Hi

    I have a wireless n router (dlink wireless N dir 655 router) and I am getting crazy ping rates and I am not sure if this is because of interference by other wireless networks (I live in an apartment so there seems to be alot of networks).

    I can ping my router and I will get one ping <1ms, 50ms, 1000ms, 300ms and it is killing my speed. I feel like I am on dialup eventhough I got highspeed dsl.

    I uploaded my log from inssider and hoping someone can help me find a solution to this.

    Hello chobo2,

    Quick question, what channel are you broadcasting on? I just ask because I see Channels 1, 6, and 11 each have 6-8 APs on them which is a lot to fight through. I also see that channels 2, 4, 7, 9, and 10 have 0 APs on them and channels 3, 5, and 8 have 2 or less APs on them.

    In summary, you are fighting a lot of APs. I would say your best bet is to switch to 5ghz or use channel 4 as there are no APs on that channel and it will receive less overlap from the other channels.

    The router is set to automatically find the best channel and use that. I started to watch this on a daily basis as for the last couple days it been choosing channel 11 what seems to be good.

    I have no clue how it chooses the best channel but obviously that day it choose a very bad one. So I am going to monitor it. What I don't get too is that one connect (71E785) and how it's ping is just shooting up consonantly. I don't know what is up with that one and not sure that one is causing problems for me.

    The auto set generally chooses between the channels 1, 6, and 11 because these are the channels with no overlap. I still have yet to find a router that would auto choose channel 4...

    I would just recommend trying channel 4 out and see what happens. Also, if you would like, you could attach screenshots of what you are seeing on your end. The .gpx file actually doesn't open up in inSSIDer. I got my info from using Tyler's inSSIDerGPXStats program.

    Oh I did not know that. I will post some screenshots when I am at my computer again. Does it randomly choose between channel 1,6, and 11? Or how does it choose which of those 3 to use?

    I am not aware of the firmware/software of modems/routers. Basically, though, I would assume that it contains some algorithms which account for things like RSSI, Channel, overlap, etc. and decides which Channel is better to be used. I just know from the several routers I have had, they always select between 1, 6, and 11 only when it's on auto.
