800 kb/s with router & modem - 16000 kb/s with modem

    when i'm downloading with my Linksys router @Thibor15c & my modem (ADSL2+) i have only speed of ~800 kb/s. When i download through a direct connection to the internet with my modem i get a speed of 16000 kb/s. Does thibor 15c limit the speed? Can't it handle the speed?

    No-one except me is using the router.

    Is this speed wired or wireless and also how many filters do you have setup (i.e. ActiveX, Cookies, etc...)

    wired and without filters.

    how the hell did you get 16000kb/sek on a link that maxes out on 24000 kbits/sek ??? Guess you wrote wrong...

    I'm sorry, i don't understand you. As you can probably see, english is not my native language. But 16 000 kb/s is correct. This is the usual speed of ADSL2+ in Germany and i HAVE this speed using only my modem.

    16000kb/s = 128000kbit/s > 100mbit.

    I think you've got a 16mbit connection. Expected optimal speeds should be below 2000 kbyte/s, but very few servers will grant you that speed.

    Have you tried to reset to factory default, cleared nvram?

    I get full speed (16 000 kb/s) using my modem, but only 600-800 kb/s using the router + the modem.

    Cleared already NVRAM und reset the router - didn't help.
    I think this is a firmware problem.

    To those who wrote thinking that ganymed was confused in writing 16000 kb/s, I think YOU are confused.

    He (she?) was correct in writing 16000kb/s (kilo-bits per sec) -- i.e. 16Mbps. He did NOT say 16000kB/s (kilo-bytes per sec). Note the lowercase "b".

    So in response to the original question... ganymed, the router might limit your download speed, but not (normally) by that much. You did not give your firmware version or your router config and it may be that you have some QoS settings messed up (?), though the defaults should be fine. It could also be that the router just has a hardware problem... my Linksys WRT54G/Thibor15c routinely allows 3000-3500kbps downstream on my (much slower than yours) cable link.

    Are you sure you don't mix up kilobits with kilobytes ?
    look up the difference plz if u aren't sure!

    Where did u get 16 000 kbit/s downstream ?

    If you get 800 kB/s (bytes), thats about 6 000 kBit/s and thats usually fine, even if u got ADSL2+. There are still not many servers, who can handle this speeds.

    16 000 kbit is usually the rated speed, i got that too, but my line just syncs at 12 000 kbit. Thats "just" about 1.5 MB/s, but as i already mentioned, u don't reach that speeds often.

    kB <> kb -> you think a noob could tell the difference !

    If he'd knew that, he wouldn't post his problems but fix it right on the spot

    you say you blame thibors firmware have you confirmed it is HIS firmware alont than is maxing out?

    have you tried other firmwares yet to prove your point?

    all you have done so far is remove the router, and blamed the his firmware. may linksys is to blame, maybe hardware f WAN if to blame. but you need to at least prove his firmware is to blame by testing with other firmware as well.

    Yes, i did. Then i switched back to Thibor and it's now working without any speed restrictions.
