Slow MSN/WLM transfer Speed since wireless router installed.

  1. Hi I'm Currently using a cable 10MB connection.

    When i upgraded to 10MB connection MSN/WLM file transfers were extremly faster than ever before.

    I got a wireless router
    Netgear WGT624 108Mb 802.11g Wireless Cable/DSL Router

    Now My PC isn't using a wireless connection, i have it wired.

    PC ethernet
    Ethernet port of wireless router(1 of 4 ports)
    router port(WAN)
    Cable Modem vai Ethernet again.
    cable modem to Internet.

    Now since then i've had very bad transfers on some occassions you get the message saying "experiencing a slow connection click here to fine out why."

    Usually inicates your behind a firewall.

    I Don't have the firewall enabled on My wireless router, i use only Windows XP SP2 built in Firewall.

    Does anyone no of a way i can fix MSN/WLM transfers?

    You don't have to enable the firewall functionality in the router - it is inherent. You have to forward certain ports to your computer or enable UPnP to allow MSN active file transfers.
