I have connected two PC from my Netgear WGR614v2 router. When I connect the router to both PC via modem (ZTE ZXDSL831 series) then my internet connection becomes very slow, I don't know why this is happening? On the other hand, when I connect only 1 PC to Netgear router and modem, I get speed up to 5mbps. I have tried resetting, rebooting but still, there is some problem with Netgear router. Can anyone fix my Netgear WiFi router so that I can enjoy good internet speed on both PC at the same time?

2.Power cycle your home network -
Let’s see how to perform a power cycle :-
a.First of all, shut down all devices including your both operating system, Netgear router, modem.
b.If you are using DSL/Cable modem then firstly turn it on and let it boot up. This process will take a little time because ISP will establish the connection with your modem. When the connection gets establish, Netgear router’s LED will blink.
c.Now, Netgear router will establish the connection with your DSL/cable modem. This process will also take some time. When Netgear router’s LED (Internet) turns into solid green you should understand your router is successfully connected to the modem.

When factory reset gets complete, Netgear router’s power light will stop blinking and turns into solid green. Just conduct this process, to restore your Netgear router to factory default settings.
