    I installed Tomato 1.21 today on my WRT54GS v2. My uploads speeds are 25KB. If I bypass my router the speed is 250KB. I have all my settings at the default. My internet is CableVision.

    What is telling you these values?

    I found the problem. Tomato sets a limit when QOS is enabled. I disabled QOS and and my uploads went to 250kb/s.

    You actually have to configure QoS properly for it to work.

    If you happened to incorrectly set your outgoing bandwidth cap to 250kbit, that would result in getting capped at about 25kb/s upload.

    Agreed. You've mistakenly entered kilobytes into the QOS settings page instead of kilobits. Or you've just configured something incorrectly.

    For example, my max upload speed from my ISP is 1000kilobits, or 125kilobytes. So, in the QOS page, I've entered 1000kbits as my outbound max bandwidth.
