Wireless lan reply speed slow?

    I connect my laptop to WRT54GS, and use ping command to test the response speed. I found the connection speed at 54MB but the time is very strange as below.

    I suppose 54Mbps should can have time = 1 ms. Isn't it?

    I made another testing to connect 2 laptops to WRT54GS. One iBook to ping WRT54GS in wireless, displayed 1 ms always. My Toshiba Notebook to ping WRT54GS displayed as above. Very slow.

    The final test is to let PC notebook to ping iBook, the ping time still is less than 1ms. Fantastic! What's going on? Any setting make the router reponse ping slow?

    Given your other posts in this forum. If you are running P2P software on the laptop, that will cause the ping repsonse you quote.

    Agree. When I use Bit torrent software, the transmission speed can reach 500KB/Sec but at the same time, the router can't be response the ping command. I open the brower, homepages loading are very slow. I tried to colse the BT software, the router was response fast and brower can be opened fast.

    Obversiouly, BT software is the root cause. My question is even the router is busy to handle BT transmission, the speed can remain 500KB/Sec. That means Router still works, isn't it?

    The other question is the phenomenon indicated "WRT54GS and WRT54G both are not suitable for long time BT download". or "BT connection will cause WRT54X slow".

    I called Linksys online technical chat to response this stituation I faced. Linksys people told me to config WRT54Gx as Access Point. That means I need to dial PPOE from my PC not from Router. It's not acceptable for me to buy a router and downgrade to Access point.


    Any workaround to make WRT54G & WRT54GS can be used to handle BT software? I already used WRT firmware. Any script can increase the connection number?

    I read previous threads about P2P. I put some startup script into WRT54GS. Will try it to see if the problem exists.
