    After fidling around for allmost a year with a usrobotics 8054 (anyone intrested in buying it from me?). I've finally tossed it out the door and replaced it with the best money supposed to buy, a wrt54gs! :idea:

    Did some tweaking , flashing, swearing, etc, and got it up and running pretty well besides a minor disconnect now and then(my apps don't freeze anymore and this router does'nt reboot evry 3 minutes!).

    The only thing I notice is that when i browse the internet with firefox (ie has the same prob here), pages load much slower then they used to do! Is this a known isseu? any suggestions where to look?? I've been playing around with mtu settings but that did'nt do much.

    Any suggestions are very appreciated!

    Greetz,

    Oh yeah, when i plug in via ethernet, pages load faster, only wireless seems to have this problem

    Hey,

    now I know why MTU reduction in setup does'nt iresolve the issue, when I set mtu manually on 1400 on the gui, it seems to stay at 1500... Am I correct? Should this become one for the buglist?

    an ifconfig on the router says the following...
