    ok - ive tried EVERYTTTHING

    my roomate and i are both pc techs - and we're at a loss here....

    first off - we have a wrt54g v2 - latest firmware (from linksys site) - default settings etc...

    after no more than a day of restoring factory defaults (this is the only way to temporarily fix the speed issues) it ALWAYS reverts... sloowwww dns (ive tried hardcoding) - impartial page loads - but if i go do a speed test, the total mb/s is exactly what we are getting with our internet tier from comcast...

    connected DIRECTLY to the modem, theres NEVER any speed issues - for days - my roomate went on vacation for a week and i had the modem directly connected to my pc - and the speed was terrific all week

    this is the 2nd linksys router or i would SURELY say its a router issue - other is a wireless N (which we RMA'd from linksys before because of this issue) - both do the same thing - after no more than a day, net is very slow and unrepsonsive, but connected none-the-less

    MTU is good - ive tried all variations of settings - nothing works... please can someone steer me in the right direction other than "get a new router" because we've gone that route.....

    tks in advance all!!
