    My ISP (SHAW) just started offering a new service called Nitro. It gives me a download speed of 25 Mbps. If I do a speedtest, I have done 3 different ones (,, and,
    I cannot get any higher than 9Mbps. If I bypass my router I am able to get 14Mbps, which Shaw is looking into since it is still to slow for a 25 mbps connection that costs $100. I am using a WRT54G with Hyperwrt Thibor15c. I have WEP turned on and I am using MAC filtering, so I am pretty sure that no one is leaching off of my network. Also I did the tests when no other computer was on or in the house so I am also sure that it is not a problem with one of the computers sucking all of the bandwidth. If any one could help it would be greatly appreciated.

    Are you running this test via wireless or wired? And there was a string awhile back talking about this very topic. I dont remember exactly what it was but it appeared that the router was unable to pass traffic at such a high rate. Ill poke around and see if i can find anything.

    I was thinking that it might have to do with the duplex mode on the uplink port

    are you using QoS on the WRT54G? I know there was limitations with QoS on very fast connections.

    I disabled the QoS and it didn't change a thing. Any other ideas?
