For some reason my router is drastically slowing my connection.

    I am experiencing sever lag on both wireless and wired connections to the router (running dd-wrt v23 sp2 micro on a v5 gs). We have a 4mb connection, but when i run speed tests I'm only getting around 450kbps down. When I plug directly into the modem however, I get speeds of 3660+kbps, so the router is definately the issue

    I've got QoS running:
    Uplink is set to 486kbps and downlink is set to 4096 kbps

    games/vnc are set to express, http: standard, http audio/video: premium,
    bitorrent/gnutella protocols: bulk, and directconnect: premium (I am the only one using dc and figured i would give it priority since i need fast downloads). However, despitethe premium setting for dc i am only getting download speeds of about 40kbps.

    Anyone have any ideas on where to start with this issue? It's driving my roommates and I crazy. Thanks in advance.

    I would start by shutting off QoS, thereby determining if its the router itself or router configuration that is causing the slowness.

    Ok, so I disabled QoS and now I'm getting a speakeasy downspeed of 2440 kbps, which is a hell of a lot better, but still not 4mb.

    Well thats a start in the right direction. If there is no other setting that is limiting bandwidth ( i am not familiar with that thrid party version ), then for me i would back out back to just the factory code and see if its the third party firmware thats causing slowness.
