    I'm getting slow speed from LAN to INTERNET using my WRVS4400N, documentation says throughput 800Mbps but i only get around 20Mbps (2MB/s)

    I have 100/100Mbit internet connection
    Computer-A Gigabit network, wired CAT5 connection to router
    Computer-B 100Mbit network, wired CAT5 connection to router
    Old router (software router on FreeBSD 4.11) 100Mbit network

    Speed A to B is around 9MB
    Speed A to INTERNET i 2MB
    Speed B to INTERNET i 2MB
    Speed A to INTERNET through Old Router was 9MB

    Am i missing something or is this very slow for my new linksys router?

    I have not updated firmware, yet.

    Regards

    What firmware are you using?

    Try deactivating the IPS function and meassure thoughput as well...
    According to another post, which had a link to a test (of the RSV4000), the thoughput is badly reduced by the IPS function...

    /P

    I have upgraded to Firmware Version: V1.00.13 and i saw no speed changes.

    I will disable IPS and see what happens!

    Thanks

    So, did it give you any inpact on the performance?

    Sorry for not giving feedback..

    Speed was increased to 4MB/s

    But one of my applications did not work well through router after disabling IPS, tried with reboot but it didn't help so I enabled it again :(

    Haven't got time to try it out more yet.

    Thanks

    tbh is sounds like your ethernet cabling is not upto speed. try a new Cat5e cable. On the routers L2 Switch page, goto cable diagnostics. I think it reports the cable spec on there.

    Since you have a Gigabit router did you upgrade your cable to handle the gigabit speed? you should use CAT6 at least for this.
