WRT54GS WRT54G WRT54GX I have the following Linksys routers. I have tried them all. No matter what router I use, my broadband speed is frequently greatly reduced with the router. Specifically, when I ping yahoo.com without connecting the router I constantly get speeds of 85 ms. When I connect the router back into the equation, my ping rate crawls ranging from 1800- 2400 ms! This is not always the case but alll to frequently, my router slows my connection greatly! I have changed cables and of course routers. I can't blame my ISP because when my modem goes directly into my computer, as noted above, I ping at 85 ms. I've use the latest firware and have even tried older firmware. I do have 4 other wifi computers connected (kids) but it doesn't matter if their computer is on or off. I realize that any router will add packets but not so much as to slow my surfing speed so drastically. Right now I am pinging at 950 ms. As soon as I remove the cable into my router and go directly to my NIC card I can ping at 85 ms! Any suggestions or thoughts. Linksy tech has given up on me.
