    I bought a WRT54GS v5.0 today and running the latest firmware v1.50.5 to replace my old router. I have an HTTP server behind the router. I tried to access the HTTP server (eg from another LAN workstation, the page loads very slow. If I access it using internal IP (, the pages loads fast. Linksys tech support suggested that my DDNS is the issue. But when I switched back to my old router, the problem went away. I also have VNC configured in the server and it's slow too when I access it using domain name from another LAN workstation. It seems to me there's some kind of bandwidth limiter accessing from LAN goes out to WAN and back in the LAN, but I don't see such feature in the router. Please help.

    I can't help you, but I have a wrt54g v5 with the same exact problem. Support is no help, wanting me to re-reflash the firmware.

    That issue is spot on with mine. I also have a WRT54G V.5. It seems to happen with any service. I am trying to access HTTP and FTP going out and coming back in. The speeds are ridiculously slow like dial up speeds. I also called linksys and the lady could barely speak English and she kept telling me to just run the online utility. :thumbdown:

    If anybody has a solution that would be bad ass.

    Sorry to bump this old thread, but has there been a solution this this issue? Having the exact same issue with my router. The slow speeds don't just seem to be internal either, even external machines get horrible speeds to my HTTP, FTP or any other service I run through it.

    The Linksys support is just terrible and I an considering canning this unit in favor of a 3COM OfficeConnect or similiar.

    The speeds that people recieved when on the outside trying to get in are normal for me.

    Same problem here. I've got two WRT54G routers on two different networks and ISP's, and it's the same story in both places -- external clients connecting using to services using the external IP are fine, internal clients connecting with internal IPs are fine, but internal clients connecting with the external IP suffer unbelievable slowdowns. What the hell is going on?

    From firmware 1.00.9 release notes:

    - Resolves issue with slow internal loopback, i.e., accessing a local server through the WAN IP address

    This firmware should resolve your issues.
