    I bought the model WRT54GX4 SX400 and I am very dissapointed with it.
    When I pull files or try to pull videos from my other PC via wireles, it is very slow. Internet surfing and range are alright.

    Also when I`m running Edonkey my connection drops all the time. Is there anything I can do about it ?? I have Firmware version 1.00.17 which I upgraded last week with the same results.

    My old linksys router did not do any of this, it always run smooth with the exception of range.

    My main concern is to make the files go thru the wireless network faster and make it stop dropping the connection when using Edonkey.

    Please help.

    I had similar situation with my SX400. Connections would drop to 5.5 Mbps after awhile forcing me to reset the router. Took it back yesterday for the WRT300N and everything is working great even without any N wireless devices yet. If you can bring it back and exchange it I would recommend doing that. There will soon be some good 3rd party firmware releases for the 300N. I wouldn't doubt even Linksys will stop supporting the SX400 soon.
