    Hey All,

    Hope the title gave a good enough description! Here's my situation:

    With both wrt54g routers I've had (a v.5 which I promptly returned, and a v.3) I seem to get a very slow connection to any website page (from a computer that is wired to the router). For example, if I type in - it will take anywhere from 2-5 seconds to load. Or if I go to a more elaborate page it could still take from 2-5 seconds. Then if I keep rapidly browsing a site (clicking on a bunch of links in a row) the access time will speed up to what it was like before I had the linksys router. I previously had a SMCBaricade hooked up to the cable modem and everything was very quick, and when I directly connect to the cable modem everything was just as quick. It just seems like it's "studdering" on the initial load up of the page.

    I did some speed tests from and speakeasy - and they all came back fine. Great download times and good upload speeds as well. So it's not an "overall" speed issue. I've also searched the forums and it seems most people have a similar problem but they are running bit torrent or some other p2p app, but I have nothing running at all. Here is what I have setup right now:

    wrt546 - running ddwrt v.22r-2
    Mac G5 hardwired to wrt54g
    Airport Express connected wirelessly using WDS
    Thats it!

    I've turned off the airport and taken off any WDS settings to see if that was the problem, but that didn't change a thing.

    I just don't know if it's a MTU setting, or something strange like that? Any help would be appreciated!

    I just wanted to bump this thread. Still no real solutions and it is still continuing. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
