    I just purchased a WRT54G... Immediatly I noticed my 3Mb/s (300Kb/s)
    drop in speed... The speed drop is so dramatic it is blatently in the fault area.

    Online speed rating software which used to rate me correct now suggests I
    am using *lower* than a 56Kb modem connection. I can get 3Kb/s download
    speeds MAX... Stead of 300Kb/s~.

    I tried updating the firmware (which took 30min's to download) using the offical
    latest firmware but nothing changed. I am still seeing this slow speed.

    Please Help. This is insanly slow.

    (The wireless is disabled; the Mac is cloned and everything else is default)

    Just for info - Received new v2.2 router (returned v2.0) and speed is
    up to normal... So clearly was a hardware problem with that router.
