    Hi folks.
    I am using DD-wrt on my WRT54GS v1 for couple of years without any trouble.
    Last week I did upgrade it to DD-WRT V23 SP2 standard (stable release) and then I have just discovered by plugging a gigabit switch on the ethernet LAN connection of the router that it detects a 10Mb/s connection (instead of 100Mb/s). Then I have tried to connect a laptop which has an integrated gigabit network card and it detects also a 10Mb/s connection. I have tried all of the 4 ethernet ports of my router and all are in 10Mb/s even if if try to force speed to 100Mb/s on my laptop.

    I have tried also to find an option in DD-WRt interface but no way to find something that would fix my issue.

    I have upgraded then DD-WRT to V24 RC6.2 standard version and it is still the same problem.

    Is there somebody who has an idea about my issue ?

    That is amazing, my internet connection is faster than my LAN speed ! I would never thing that I could say that one day !

    I have forgotten to say that I have tried with different type of cables : cat. 5e and cat. 6.

    No guarantee that it would work, but I would do a hardware reset (the 30 second reset thing), followed by a software reset to defaults, and re-configuring.

    I have experienced wireless problems with RC6.2, so went back to RC5.
