    Anyone experience bandwidth issues with the RV series. I have an RV042 connected to a 10MB cable account and only get 2MB incoming. I get a full 1.5 outgoing which is supplied by the ISP. I have reset to defaults to make sure it was not a policy or setting. When I test the speed directly from the cable modem I get full bandwidth. I have not tried another RV router but a basic D-Link 604 works great.

    I have an RV042 with firmware on a Cox Cable 9Mb down 1Mb up connection and am seeing a full 9 down after tweaking the RWIN settings on my PC. Try setting your RWIN setting (TCP Receive Window) to 64240 and make sure your MTU is set to 1500 on the PC and router. You will need to reboot the PC for these changes to take effect.

    You can use Dr. TCP to set these setting though a GUI interface vs. modifing the settings via the registry.

    You can download Dr. TCP from here: http://www.dslreports.com/drtcp

    Setting the MTU on the router to 1500 thankfully cleared up this issue for me. Good luck to you.
