Dramatic Speed Decrease

    I have a WRT54G v3 and I've noticed a dramatic speed decrease when I upgraded to Alchemy-pre7a v3.37.6.8sv. I'm using the Windows Task Manager network percentage of 54Mbps as the benchmark by transfering a file across the network.

    With the stock firmware I get 41% of 54Mbps, but when I load Alchemy and use its default settings I only get 26% of 54Mbps. Is there some setting I have to use to make it go the same speed as the stock firmware???

    I've tried a few changes in the "Wireless", "Advanced Settings" but those seem to make the transfers even slower

    This problem is related to so called "old" wireless driver that is used in every modyfied firmware. If you want to achieve big speed then you must use the newest LinkSys firmware (the original one).
