    Just curious how much it can handle? I haven't tried hooking up directly yet since I've got a lot of people sharing the internet. But the internet is supposed to be around 50mbps. Using all 40 connections of newshosting xl and giganews, I'm still only seeing around 30mbps or so. cpu load on the router isn't much at all. icmp to a close ip doesn't budge from 10-20ms all thorughout. I know this may have something to do with vegas, so it might not be conclusive..

    anyone with high speeds out there?

    I think there was a thread several weeks ago comparing max throughput for various firmwares on the WRT54G, and it peaked around ~30-40mbps with Tomato, likely with not much running and not many open connections.

    Regular 1.23 got 58mbps. Thread is here.

    There ya go. It jumped from around 45mbps in Tomato 1.22 to 58mpbs in Tomato 1.23. It was stated that this was done with default settings (i.e. no QOS, no nothing).

    Also be careful when you're testing with Vista and his bug limiting to 35 mbps .. better use Linux and the known iperfm command. 1.23.8513 ND performs 57,45 mbps WAN-LAN running AXIA benchmarking on WRT54GL and support 7897 connections with less than one second response surfing GUI menu.

    Thanks

    Upon closer inspection, the article says he did some fixes in Vista before removing the firewall. Use with caution, as always.

    Victek, a few questions. 57,45 mbps, the small "m" confused me, do you mean Megabits or MegaBytes?

    Is that speed achieved single conection, multiple connection one direction, or multiple connection both directions?

    Is that at stock cpu frequency?

    Thanks

    It's almost imposible to obtain 57 MB wirelessly or even by normal ethernet connection (which is 100 Mb). So...choose your b's...:biggrin:

    It's Mb (Mega bits).

    danix71, you are quite correct, and I feel stupid about that part of the question. The questions about test conditions & CPU speed remain.

    M, sorry, the test was done between WAN-LAN, the target was to test the throughput of the router. Test between LAN achieved 8,75MB easy. Stock CPU clock value.

    No, you don't have to feel as you said :) we are all learning.

    And something else, in case you didn't know: wireless communication isn't quite as they say it is, in speed I mean. Wireless communication is half-duplex that means you can obtain in one direction only half of the speed of that particular connection.

    Ex: In theory, 802.11g is a 54 Mb/s connection but you will obtain only (about) half of that, they say 19 Mb/s.

    Victek, I understood your test was WAN-LAN, what I'm wondering was if it was a test with several parallel transfers in both directions, or a single direction transfer. 1 of the benchmarks I read showed a fast (~58Mb) transfer with Tomato 1.23, but it seems to slow way down with multiple, bi-directional transfers. I'm wondering if your mod changes that?

    BTW, I have read the entire thread on your latest mod, some impressive work.

    You read it correct, was 7897 IP's entering from WAN-LAN-WAN again (in order to measure and show the multiple threads opened BUT addressed to one machine (IP) in the local network.
