I have a WRT350N that does not seem to recognize a 1Gb link (via a USR 10/100/1000 NIC in WinXP). Oddly, XP reports that the link is 1Gb, but the port LED is green and not orange. I *do* get an orange LED on the port (port 4 if it matters) that is connected to a GigE Netgear switch. Any reason XP would report the link speed as 1Gb while the router itself does not light the 1Gb lamp? I've switched ethernet cables (both Cat 5e, one homemade one storebought) cable lengths are less than 6'.
