    Hi there,

    I have the Linksys WRT54G V2.2 running tomato 1.28 and it's been working fine for a few years now. However after a broadband upgrade from 10mb to 20mb i don't get the full speed on my hard wired desktop PC? Using speedtest.net i still get around 10mb with the router inline but if i plug the modem directly into the PC i get the full 20mb. I still want to keep the router as i have various other wireless devices that need the internet, am i missing something as i thought this router could easily do 20mb or more hard wired???

    Are we talking Mbits or MBytes here?
    If the latter than the router is just under powered.
    If the former than you could try to reset the router to factory settings?

    After much frustration with this problem i finally went with the latest official firmware from linksys which is 4.20.8.
    Problem solved, it's all working fine now with the hard wired speed of 20Mbps down and 2Mbps up and no problems...
