    I'm looking for ways to speed up and test traffic on my small network. I have a WRT54G for the main router to the Internet and I have one on the edge for moving TiVo data. I have set QoS and the like, but I really just want to know what the best settings are for pure speed and how would this be tested? I'm not looking for Wireless speed, more wired speed.

    Also, if there are any TiVo peeps out there...how long should it take a movie to move from one box to the other. I'm seeing like 2 days to move a 1 hour movie.

    thanks.

    I copy video files from Tivo to a PC and it takes way less than 2 days for 1 hour. I get around 40 minutes for 1 hour of recording (using wireless link(. I doubt that the the limiting factor is a router, unless something is wrong in configuration.

    It is possible that Tivo to Tivo is somewhat slower than Tivo to PC but not by a lot.

    I use iPerf (free download in http://dast.nlanr.net/ ) to measure network throughput.
