SEE THE FIX IN THE 7TH POST BELOW I have a WRT54G v2.2 with 3.03.6 firmware. The problem is that my WIRELESS internet connection downstream data rate is about 1/2 of my WIRED internet connection data rate. The wired rate (to atl.speakeasy.net) peaks at 6.6Mbps and averages about 5.5Mbps. The wireless rate peaks at 3.0Mbps and averages about 2.5Mbps (peaks measured by Netpersec tool). By comparison, the wireless rate for a local network file copy averages around 16Mbps, so the problem doesn't seem to be in the wireless link itself, but somewhere in the connection from the wireless access point in the WRT54G through the router portion of the WRT54G and out to the Internet. I've tried a number of things with no improvement so far, i.e. disabled encryption, turned off QOS, latest firmware, set to G-only mode. I would appreciate any advice from your network sages on how to correct this problem (presuming it is correctable!) P.S. I had very similar experience with a BEFW11S4 with internet wireless rates peaking at 2.5 and averaging about 2.0Mbps.
