    I just purchased this unit thinking it was going to be a great solution but like many posts I've read the speed issues are very frusterating. I'm on a 8 MB connection and only getting a third of that speed on average (used a Dlink before and got the full throughput). I've read that changing the MTU settings on the router can help but for the life of me I cannot find how to do that in the GUI. If someone can help with that and any other suggestions for increasing my speed I would be most grateful. I'm running the newest firmware of 2.0.20.

    Thank in advance!

    Can't believe I didn't see that on the firewall settings screen but so be it! I changed it to manual for the MTU and set it at 1500. Now I'm getting about 60-70% of my previous bandwidth which is much better but am hoping to increase it to what it was before. Any other suggestion would be most appreciated!

    BTW - when the MTU was set to auto it appeared to be at 1500 as well but that setting resulted in about 20-30% of available bandwidth....seems strange

    Thanks for the help thus far...
