Problem Accessing Web Server via HTTP After Changing Wireless router

Hi there, I have query regarding a wireless router. My internet connection setup consists of an ADSL modem (D-link DSL-320T) connected via an Ethernet cable to a wireless router (D-link DIR-615). My network appliances in turn connect to the router wirelessly. Originally, I had the modem connected to the DIR-615 wireless router (***model = H/W ver: B2; F/W ver: 2.21). However, when the router ceased to function, I replaced it with another DIR-615. Note, that the new model was: H/W ver: D4; F/W ver: 1.00 VG. After this point, I have had a problem in accessing web pages stored on my web server (which connects to my router via a wireless bridge and also acts as an FTP server). When accessing these pages over the internet on a remote terminal, they are very slow to load – this is the case on all the web sites that I host and not just one. Note that accessing files works at normal speed over the internet via FTP using an FTP client or simply connecting to the FTP server using a web browser. Whilst my port forwarding settings on the new router are the same as they were on the old unit, I was wondering what the issue might be that is causing these problems? Are there any settings on the new router that can be altered to deal with this problem issue? Any suggestions are welcome! Kind regards

Software/Hardware used:
D-link DIR-615 wireless rouer, D-link DSL-320T ADSL model

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You mentioned that your “old router” had the ” F/W ver: 2.21″ and the new one was at FW ver 1.00..

Right off, i’d say hurry and get a firmware upgrade, wipe and reconfigure the router, as the FW updates may address issues with the wireless radio / drivers.

And as far as bridging, keep in mind that every hop over a wireless connection cuts your through-put to about half. Wiring your server into a wired switching solution may be better, or get a wireless card so the server can connect directly to the router…

    I should also add that I've just tried to connect by web/ FTP server directly to the router via an Ethernet cable. After doing this, I attempted to access my web pages over the internet on a remote terminal. In this instance, the web pages appeared to load at the normal speed. Therefore, it appears that the problem issue mentioned in the first post is concerning the wireless connection between the router and the wireless switch (which is what the web server is plugged into). The model of wireless switch is: Netgear WGPS606.
