hi, i'm new here, i bought my router in september and i flashed it about a month ago with hyperwrt in the hopes that it would help with my wireless speeds, but it hasnt. it does give nice new options, but nothing seems to help for speeds. i'm using a wrt54gs, with Firmware Version: v3.37.6 - HyperWRT 2.1b1. i know the wifi speeds are controvertial at best, most of the problems occure because of interference from such things as monitors, modems, telephones, speakers, walls, etc the problem i'm having though, i'm sitting 6feet away from the router, line of sight, my wireless connexion is set at 54mbps in both the laptop and router, yet i can only transfer 2,4megabytes/s from computer to computer (700meg file takes 5 to 6 mins to transfer). if i test with a cable instead, then it goes up to 8megabytes/s. The strange thing is, i get the same wireless speeds one floor up from the router aswell as in the same room. Since i get pretty much the same speed wherever i am in the house (lucky i suppose), is it logical to assume this router can't do more than 2.4mb/s ? and if so, do i have a defective router? one that can only do 2.4mb instead of the advertised up to 54mbits? (ie : ~7megabytes/s) if its defective, whats the procedure to get linksys to exchange the router ?
