I got al little angry @ my Cable ISP last time ...cTold them that my connection is crappy for a while now. But i recently found out that it wasn't my ISP but it's my WRT54G v3.1(Firmware Version: v4.71.1, Hyperwrt 2.1b1 + Thibor15c ). I'v been noticing that my connection (20mb line) drops to about 1.4MB/s. first i thought it might be my duplex settings of my nic, but changing that didn't help. After a while i found out that every time i rebooted the linksys WRT54G my speed went up to 2.3MB/sec. Is this a known issue ? BTW i love this firmware ...been running it for a while now.
