Slow connection with TP-LINK® router
A router in simple terms can be best described as a device that forwards packets of data in a network. A router links two or more computer networks together and they are of many different types. Routers are classified according to the types of network and the speeds they support. TP-Link Routers are very popular. These routers are made of the highest quality internal components that are tested to ensure that issues would not come up when they are in use. This enables users to make use of the router connection for tasks such as unsupervised downloading and uploading of very large files. Some users might problems when using TP-Link Routers. One of such issues is router working very slow. The TP-Link Router connected to your system might be working slow because of many reasons such as problems with router drivers installed, some other service consuming all of the bandwidth, malware infections within the system etc.
- Update drivers
- Disable unwanted services
- Remove potential threats
TP-Link Router requires drivers to function. Drivers link the router with the Operating System and without them, the routers would not be able to communicate with the OS and vice versa. If the TP-Link Router drivers installed in the system gets outdated, then connection speed can be very limited. Such problems can be resolved by updating the router drivers installed on the system. Users can either install updated versions of router drivers or update the drivers directly using the device manger.
Disable unwanted services
Very large numbers of applications or programs can be installed on computers. Majority of these applications are designed to update themselves when a network connection is available. Applications or services running in the background can use a lot of connection bandwidth offered by TP-Link Router and slowdown the connection. In such cases, the problem can be fixed by disabling unwanted network based services on the system using the services.msc command in RUN.
Potential threats or malwares can cause slowdown of connection speed of TP-Link Routers. Malwares such as spyware would be constantly sending out information from the system causing connectivity slowdown. Such issues can be fixed by removing the potential threats on the system. Having an antivirus program with real time protection would help keep malwares away and maintain the TP-Link Router connection at high speeds.
