    I just registered here and already have a lot of questions.
    recently my ISP has doubled the connection speed.unfortunately I can't get the full downloadspeed.the speed is even less than I had with my old modem.a direct connection of the computer with the modem reaches the full speed.Only if I reconnect the wireless router (WRT54GL V1.1), I don't have the full speed (upload is working as double speed,just not download).

    I checked all the setting and tried to change one by one w/o success.
    If I change the setting from DHCP to Static-IP, I get full power??
    Don't get me wrong,it's just a minor inconvenience but I'd like to know why.
    Why don't I get the full speed on DHCP.

    also I won't get the full speed with my laptop (only 25%).
    The settings are mainly set to default, cause I don't know how to tweak 'em.

    Any help to make me understand this router is greatly appreciated.......
