New Router Makes the Whole Internet Faster!
For the last 2 years, I’ve been using an “Asus WL-500G Premium” wifi router. It died 2 weeks ago so I fell back to using my old “Netgear WGR614 v5”. I immediately noticed that the internet wasn’t what it used to be. :-(. The most noticeable thing was that DNS on the Netgear was so slow that sometimes it would time out. But every page took a bit longer to load…
So 10 minutes ago I installed my new “Linksys WRT54GL” and wowie kazaowie, the internet is faster than ever! Every site is zippity do-da fast!
Moral of the story: Try a new router, it might fix your slow web browsing problems :-)
