How to get better upload speed?

    We have a 12megabit download and 12megabit upload fiber internet connection from the ISP. Using the ISP supplied router, Cisco RV120W, we are getting the 12megabit download and 12megabit upload speed internet connection.

    We do not want to use the Cisco RV120W. We want to use Tomato Firmware. Tomato Firmware gives us more control.

    So we installed Tomato Firmware v1.28.9055 MIPSR1-git-13042011 K26 Std into Linksys WRT-300N ver 1.

    The PPPoE, DDNS and the rest are working great. The download speed is around 12megabit. Unfortunately the upload speed is only about 5megabit to 6megabit when it should be around 12megabit. We used speedtest.net to do the test. We also made sure that speedtest was using the same server all the time for the tests.

    Then we installed dd-wrt into the Linksys WRT-300N router to check if the router was faulty. Using the dd-wrt firmware, we can get 12megabit download and 12megabit upload speeds for the internet. So the router hardware is working.

    We also disabled the QoS in Tomato firmware thinking that might have limited the upload speed. Unfortunately the upload speed is still the slow speed even with the QoS disabled.

    Is there some settings that we missed out? Should we run some scripts to get the upload speed to max?
    Need advice on how to solve this issue. Please help by letting us know how to resolve the limitation in the upload speed.

    I don't really know why it should have a limit. But I don't know that version of firmware as it wasn't an official release and I never ran it. It might be better if you used a more recent version of code which we know for sure works for most people at high speeds. Then if you have a problem at least it will be easier to get help. You can download versions from several modders, a link to mine are in the signature below.
