Fix SMC® Router Slow
What problems lead to SMC router runs slow and how to fix it?
An SMC router is a router that is capable of delivering high-speed connectivity. An SMC router is able to deliver high performance and speed. Both wireless routers and wired routers are available from SMC. Router has LAN port, which is similar to network switch. WAN port is for connection to wide area network and can be used for Internet connection. The wireless router is primarily a router with Wireless Access Point and network switch. You can connect directly to Internet or a network without the need for cables. It has the flexibility to work in wired LAN, wireless LAN, or both. Problems may arise in connecting router to DSL modem. To avoid those problems, always start your network starting with the modem, wireless router and then the system.

The following are tips to fix such issues with SMC router:
- Wireless Network Expansion
- Change the channel
- Incorrect network connections
Wireless Network Expansion
The wireless router might run slow in some cases. The larger the distance from the router, the larger will be the interference. If there are any interruptions such as wireless phone signals, then the signal strength will be decreased. The repeaters are effective to improve the signal strength of the wireless router. The power line bridges are also effective to improve the signal strength of the repeater.
Change the channel
Channel settings are another method to optimize the router in the system. If more than one device works in the same aero space, then the chance of interruption is more and thus the network connection also. If this is the case, then you could resolve them with the help of the path changing method. The channels need to be configured properly.
The network connections need to be made proper. In order to do this, you need to check the network connection. If the Ethernet cable is very long, then you might experience slow connection. While designing LAN use only minimal wires. Unnecessary cable length might affect the speed. Make sure that the Ethernet adapter used are compatible with the network and is having sufficient data speed.
