    I've noticed that lots of people in here have had problems with the WRK54G router. I bought the WKUSB54-BP package (the WRK54G with the Wireless-G USB adapter). After five days of frustrating calls to support technicians with Linksys as well as my internet service provider, I feel confident in saying that there's no way this device could possibly work properly. It has slowed my download speeds to one third of their previous rates. Ebay now takes five minutes just for the first page to load. Online games that only require a 56K connection in order to play get lagged out...and this is all on the PC that is wired to the router, not the wireless. I have change the MTU, spoofed the MAC address, run the modem bridged and unbridged, changed modems and cables, and replaced the router only to have the same thing happening over and over. As soon as I take the router out of the line, my speeds jump up again. Why is this happening? Is there some setting that I'm overlooking?
