I have a new house and decided to be adventurous and wire each room with cat 6. Each room tested out ok and can connect to a buffalo NAS run off the switch. My setup – Time warner cable into their modem. From the modem into a Linksys EA6500 router. From the EA6500 router I’m plugged into a Netgear JGS524 24 port switch. Each port in the switch goes to a room in the house, including 8 to my office. The whole setup (NAS, router, modem, switch) is on a rack in the basement 5 feet from the electrical box. I work from home in a bandwidth intensive environment. I also have a number of wireless devices (android phones, ipad, ipod etc) hooked up via the wireless on the Linksys. In addition I have a wireless repeater a NetGear WN3000RP. I have no problems pinging the NAS that goes through the switch. Here’s my problem. I’m getting intermittent connection issues, from no internet at all, to speeds ranging from .22 Mbps down to 75 Mbps down. My ip address for the modem is 192.168.0.1 and the router is 192.168.0.2. Everything else is assigned an address by the router. When I first got the modem it was on 192.168.0.1 and the router was at 192.168.1.1 and I had all kinds of issues like random disconnects, so I presumed they had to be on the same subnet, but I haven’t had any improvement with the change. I’m rated to get 50 Mbps down and 5 up. Upload speed has been consistently 4-5 which is within range, it’s always been the download speed that has been all over the place. On top of it all, the wireless repeater can see the WLAN but not the LAN which makes no sense to me whatsoever as the router is plugged directly into the switch. I plugged in directly to the modem and had the same issues with speed, which makes me think it’s a modem issue, however, since I do work from home I want to be sure I’m not missing anything glaring. I’d also like to get the wireless repeater issue resolved. Any ideas? Am I getting interference from the electrical? I had thought with insulated cable I’d be OK.
