    I have a WRT54G v5 with DD-WRT v23 SP1 Final (05/16/06) micro
    i noticed even before i flashed with the DD-WRT that wired speeds where normal 8mb down but wireless even with an excellent connection im getting 2.5-3mb this is on any wireless connection i see this. I do alot of newsgroups on different computers so i like to have 100% of my internet bandwith fully avail at anytime.

    Truth be told i played with QoS with no success everytime i set something it did the exact opposite of what iwanted.

    anybody else seen this issue?
    i use wireless 98% of the time (only thing that is wired is a fileserver in a closet and a "media PC" that is next to the router)
    3 PCs and 2 laptops are on wireless (total of 7 computers 5 wireless 2 wired)

    any help would be great!

    is the wireless network encrypted? the encryption being used is going to take some of the overhead on the packets, also the MTU can cause issues

    I am having the same problem with a WRT54GS v4. I have tried the stock firmware, DD-WRT, and Thibor15c. All with the same results. Also, the encryption does not seem to affect the download speeds, as I selected to have no encryption as one of my tests, and that did not help. I have not tried messing with the MTU. I also have excellent wireless connection strength.

    Changed the MTU to 1400 per Linksys tech, still same speeds. I am starting to think it might be a combination of my wireless adapter Intel 2200BG, and the WRT54GS. I was also able to connect to a neighbors unsecured WRT54G, but I still get the same speeds.

    how far are you from the AP? further you are the more likely you will be re-sending packets more than once meaning slower download speeds. your WRT54GS will not be able to take advantage of the Speedbooster so it makes sence that its similar to the speeds of the other router. have you tried any bandwidth tests between your PC and the router/s/ ?
