WRVS4400N - Wan bandwidth cap?

    I've had my router for a year or so. I just upgraded my Comcast service to 30mbit down and started doing some troubleshooting when I realized I couldnt get past 14mbit up. I tossed in new Cat6, checked all connections, bypassed the router, and the depressing thing is that I can get those speeds in every scenario except when I connect it to my 4400n. I tried 1.1.08 and 1.1.13 so far and no change whatsoever. I restored my router to defaults, same thing.

    Is there a hardware or software limitation in the 4400n that limits it from going beyond ~14mbit?

    Also, there seems to be some serious popularity in a custom firmware that was linked here:


    It seems to indicate that the 4400n's hardware is capable of pushing up to 2.7mbytes, which is ridiculously large and would mean that I could get up to my 30mbit pretty easy. Is that true? Is it worth switching away from the default firmware? Does Linksys/Cisco have an answer to their false advertisement and poor software?

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    Disable the IPS function, the hardware is to slow for this downloadspeed.
    I have it disabled and with standard firmware I can download with nearly 3,7MB/sec!
    The max. theoretical limit from my provider is 4MB/sec. so it is OK for me :)
