Internet slower when bridged

    I'm not sure if this exclusively Tomato related, but since the firmware I'm running with 1.17 I thought here a good place to start.

    I notice that if I connect to my ISP using their supplied modem/router (a ST585), in non bridge mode then I sync at around 10Mbs and this relates to a file download speed of approx 1MB/s.

    If I connect in brigde mode with the WRT54GL, then the ST585 still syncs at 10Mbs, but the max real life download speed I can achieve is around 720KB/s.

    Anyone else notice this drop off in speed or have any advice or troubleshooting ideas?

    Much appreciated.

    I found the reason, feel a little silly for overlooking the obvious. I still had the QoS settings that were in place when I migrated over to this ISP. I went from 7Mbs ADSL 1 to 10Mbs ADSL 2+ Ha ha, I got to laugh at myself for forgetting this.
