I am having slow transfers on the wired Ethernet LAN interface and I get about ~1.7 MB/s instead of ~10 MB/s that I get when I connect another computer directly to the cable without the WRT54G. WAP: Linksys WRT54G v6 802.11bg & 4-Port Fast Ethernet (100Mbps) Router (2MB RAM Nefred Edition) (Firmware: Linksys 1.02.05 and DD-WRT V24-SP1) Router: Linksys BEFSR81 v3 8-Port Fast Ethernet (100Mbps) Router (Firmware: Linksys 2.51.3) I'm a systems admin and here is what I tried. Linksys firmware upgrades on both routers and also DD-WRT install on the WAP router. Two different laptops with RealTek and 3Com NICs and both laptops tried with Auto or 10-half/full, 100-half/full duplex settings. Changed MTU settings on the WAP router from 1500 to 1400. Other things that I'm forgetting. Both laptops give 10 MB/s transfers when using the cable directly. Below is a thread that I found with someone else having the exact same problem as me. LAN very slow with LinkSys wireless router.htm This information coincides with my findings and I have to say that all the Linksys WRT54G v6 router with only 2MB of RAM and VxWorks OS are broken and cannot deliver any faster speeds. At this point I'll be posting router up for sale since there is nothing else for me to try short of hardcore nvram tweaks or hardware resoddering. I'll be buying a competitor's product now. Stop yourself from replying if you are going to recommend a solution involving anti-virus disabling, spyware clean up, os reinstall, faulty router, cabling issue, or something else you think might work but aren't really that sure will.
