    I just discovered this router only has a 10Mbs Wan port. With different ISP's approaching broadband speeds of 10Mbs, is there any workaround / fix for this issue?

    I would guess the 10Mbs barrier will be shattered for home users in the next 2-3 years. (After all, WiMax will save us all very soon :D [just kidding])

    Will this be something firmware could fix or is it time for a new (better) router?

    look at the hardware section to see what the actual hardware is then find out. if its a 10 meg port its a 10 meg port. no workarounds.

    EDIT: Also i am an idiot, there is no review of this product anymore.

    if windows thinks its 10 meg it probably is. plug it into your nic and see what it comes up.

    Huh...well I am confused

    The specs from Linksys clearly state WAN 10Mbs...however when I plug my NIC into the Wan port it connects at 100 Mbs.

    Wooohoo, it *probably* is 10/100

    I just chatted with a tech and he checked and said the spec page is a typo in the "data sheet" on their web page.

    Also, upon further review of my user manual:

    Ports One 10/100 RJ-45 Port for Broadband Modem
    Eight 10/100 RJ-45 Switched Ports

    Now all I have to do is wait for my broadband to catch up!!!
