    hey all!

    I've got a WRT54G router, set up on our home network. 5 of us are using the wireless connection. The guy that's connected straight to the modem can download files at 100k/sec, but everyone that uses the router can download at a maximum of 15k/sec.
    This is the same, even if no one else is downloading anything.

    the computers are reporting a connection speed of 36mbps and above, so why so slow???

    AFAIK, the more users using the same AP can cause a decrease in bandwidth.... also the wired connection could be using your pipe up.

    Just a couple of thoughts.. Maybe there are some QOS options that will help you out..

    the speeds are the same, even if no one else is connected, what does QOS mean???

    QoS is a popular feature that “guarantees†better service to selected traffic on a network. The goal in configuring QoS is to give priority and attention to certain devices or services so that they can use the maximum available throughput and speed available on a certain network when it is needed.

    Linksys's own firmware only handles QoS one way... outward ie Uploads.

    Satori, Alchemy and DD-WRT (forked version of Alchemy) firmwares handle download priorites as well.

    How do I configure QoS (Quality of Service) on the WRT54G?
