Three weeks ago, I decided to buy a Wireless CD-R king router brand for my home network because it was the nearest store I can go to that night and my old wireless router died on me. Since I badly need a connection, I purchased the router and the price was just fair enough. Compared to other routers like Linksys, D-Link or netgear, this is really an affordable router. I was able to use it for a week until I bought a new router that has the feature I need.
Since I will not be using it anymore, I give it to a friend of mine. She hooked up the router in their three computers. First week, it was working smoothly but then it suddenly slow down their Internet connection. They never lose the connection through the Internet but if they were using the three computers simultaneously, it was acting like a dial-up connection. They are on high speed internet, more than 1 MBPS so it should be fast especially with a router that can manage the bandwidth for each devices connected to it. If she connects her laptop straight to their DSL modem, she can surf the net very fast so we know ...
it is not her ISP, Ethernet cable and wireless NIC’s in her desktop that is causing the problem. I never really notice its performance since I used it for barely a week. At that point, we know that it is already a router problem. We did reset it but no avail.
I am pretty sure that it is just a firmware problem. Unfortunately, they don’t have one available in the web site. So, we went there the other day to get a copy of firmware but again, they don’t have one. Since I don’t have the device with me, I need to go back to have it checked by their technician so it can be replaced. I just thought that they should have a firmware backup file if not the updated firmware/software for their router for the customers who are experiencing the same problem.
CD-R king offers lots of products that are good like affordable blank DVD’s, CD’s, USB flashdisk etc but I am kind of disappointed with their first wireless router. I still prefer branded routers like Linksys, netgear, Dlink and 2wire wireless modem because they are stable devices and has lots of upgrades if you need to do it from your end.
