NETGEAR ROUTER WITH VISTA?

Recommended Posts

Having swapped my laptop with xp to one with vista basic, my internet seems to be extremley slow. im on virgin and wondered if there were any settings on my router to help?? my router is netgear DG834g v4 .

 

For eg downloading an update for itunes or nokia pc suite takes over 40 mins??? surley this is right.. i never had this problem on my xp laptop.

 

ive updated my router firmware but still no joy

that's not the router, it's your computer.

 

make sure you have the most up to date network drivers.

do you have enough ram?

 

press alt ctrl del is your pf usage less then half, if not your upgrade is half done, you need more memory.

 

is your cpu usage less than 25% if not, your processor may not have enough power for vista.

 

my money is on the memory, it gets overlooked when installing new os. Ive seen xp run with 128meg ram, it cralled.
