    I recently bought WRT54G v5.0 becuz my old BELKIN router overheated and got fried... so nyways I am able to get the internet up and such but I have encountered several issues

    1) usually the internet speed is not noticeably fast or slow, just like what i'm used to wen surfing webs or gaming but wen i try to watch/downstream those videos on nba.com its very slow.. keeps buffering and the video is so laggy its not watchable
    I tried connecting my comp directly to my modem and the videos works fast and smooth
    I have updated the firmware on linksys site (v1.00.6, Jan. 10, 2006) and have bugged their technicians a numerous times but all they know is telling me to update firmware and reset router or setting the MTU lower, which I have done many times.. any suggestions?

    2) this is minor but the internet icon on my task bar is acting weird.. the send light is constantly on and wen I click it, it closes itself right away
    It seems like that icon is trying to obtain information blocked by the router

    With my old router I have never encountered these problems..

    Your help is appreciated!!
