    Hi all,

    I'm experiencing a strange issue. I get extremely slow downloads at some sites when connected through my router, however a direct connection is OK.

    An example is the below file from Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.

    Through my WRT54G v2.2 with latest official firmware, the download speed is <10kB/sec.

    If connect my Motorola cable modem direct to PC, I get speed of 700kB/sec.

    Anyone has any clue what is the problem with the router? Is it fried?

    This is what I have.
    Intel 3GHz Desktop, onboard Marvell Gigabit LAN
    WRT54G v2.2 with latest official firmware
    Motorola SB5101(I think so) cable modem - broadband plan is 6.5Mbps

    Appreciate any expert advise? Or should I rma my router?

    Same here!

    Did you figure this out yet?? I have been having similiar issues for the past two weeks. I have changed cables, routers, and the modem, all to no avail. My problem is that I have 2 desktops (hardwired) and a laptop which is wireless all going thru a linksys router. If I go direct from the cable I have great download speeds, once it is put thru the router download speeds on the second desktop slows to a crawl (20-30 kbps).
