    I am not a particularly inept network user But, I have been trying to resolve an ongoing problem with my rv042 for months!

    the down speed (only down) slows incredibly through the router with a Roadrunner Cable connection ( I say this, because I did not have this problem with Comcast)

    Connected direct to the modem my speeds are fine (PC to Modem). but through the rv042 they slow to a crawl.

    I have exchanged the router for a new one. I have reset all the settings, I have tried the MTU fixes, I have udated the firmware

    Can ANYONE tell me what the hell is the problem before I loose a gasket!

    I have similar problems with mine. I recently upgraded to the 9/1 premier service from Cox and this router seems to cap out at around 4Mb/s. My WRT54GS allows me to pull my full 9Mb down. I ended up hooking up my WRT54GS. I tried Linksys tech support, but all they could end up saying was to RMA my RV042. I don't think this will help, as it appears to be a firmware or maybe a compatibility issue with my cable modem (SB5100).

    What type of cable modem do you have?
    What is the firmware revision on your cable modem?

    I have seen other posts on this issue and there does not seem to be a fix at this time.

    If you find anything out keep me posted.

    Turn off logging, email, SPI, and whatever you don't need. Connect RV042 (and everything you have) to a core switch and use the RV042 as a router only. I think RV042 can handle up to 10M.
