    im having a problem with my WRT54GS V1.0 (CGN1 = WRT54GS v1.0 / ADM6996L Chipset / CPU 200Mhz )

    my ISP is optimun online today i had the chance to upgrade to there Boost service 30Mbps down 2Mbps up. I can only reach about 20Mbps down so i was wondering if the WRT54GS i have has a Limit in Wan port?

    i being using linksys firmware i also tried HyperWRT there Stable 2.0 & Beta 2.1b1 firmwares speed test scores only improve by 150KB.
    is the WRT54GS limit by a 20Mbps WAN port ?
    ( quick note i when cable modem straight to PC i achive 26-27.8Mbps)

    even my BEFSR41 V3 puts my WRT54GS to shame it can handle boost just fine...... plz help

    I believe the SpeedBooster on a WRT54GS is meant to boost the WiFi signals and has nothing to do with the speed on the WAN port. If I were you, I would power cycle the modem and factory reset the router to see if this problem will go a way. Remember, if you factory reset the router, its current configuration will be erased. So, please make a backup of the current settings.
