    I have a Mac and a PC conencted to a BEFSR41 version 1.1. My ISP is providing for a 5Mbps link. Firmware version is 1.46.02, the latest version available from Linksys.

    When connected to the routeur with the PC, I can reach easily a 5Mbps download from my ISP download test site.

    With the mac, my download are very slow. About 10 percent of that bandwith. If I connect the Mac directly to the DSL modem, I can reach the full download pentential. I have a fresh clean install of 10.4.x on my Mac right now. I tried playing with the Mac MTU, with no help.

    So what is the config on the router (or the Mac) that can prevent me from reaching the full potential of my ISP?
