    I tried searching and didnt find anything so:

    Anyone know if i can force the WAN port on my new WRT54G v4 to 10mbps? My old linksys (802.11b) router detected at 10mbps automatically. I have the standard unmodded firmware 4.20.6.


    My cable modem is upstairs and I have a sketchy ethernet cable that only works on 10mbps running from the modem to the router. The router is downstairs in a room with 3 wired pc's.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd like to leave the linksys firmware for now. Can I do anything with the ping.asp hack and exec a command like "admcfg port0 10Mbps"?

    Or is that only possible if I have 3rd party FW?

    a third party firmware should allow to to set this via Telnet.

    I didn't ever realize that the wan port is capabable of 100mbit, then again, why wouldn't it....

    which would you recommend? im sure there is a large discussion on preference but this is the only additional functionality i'll need. I need one that works well with bit torrent.

    thanks for the help. I ended up re-crimping to T568B. That seems to have fixed the prob.
