    I have an older WRT54G v1.1 and a high-bandwidth (50Mb/s) connection with my ISP. However, I can only get this speed when connected directly to my modem.

    With the router in the mix, I'm only getting half this speed. I have been using dd-wrt firmware (latest version as of August 7, 2010).

    Any thoughts?

    Time for a new router. It does not have the horsepower for speeds like that.

    Done and done. Replaced the router and now getting the speeds I expected. Thanks.
