    I have come to determine that my wrv54g is a complete pile of crap. not only can i not get to to work as a vpn end point my data transfer rates are abyssmal.

    I have a dlink 824vup as well and I did a side by side comparison..

    I have a 6M down/512k Up cable connection

    with my dlink i get 5.5 down and about 475 up not too bad ( but it reboots alot )

    with the wrv54g i get about 900k down and 300k up absolutely terrible.
    I guess i want to know if its just my unit or if everyone has this issue, i connect to it wirelessly and it has 2.37 firmware.
    Anyone got a suggestion? I like the stability i have had from the linksys but the speeds are killing me.

    any and all ideas welcome.

    Must be your unit. I have a WRV54G and I get 6meg down and 768k up.

    I'd check with my provider were I in your situation (as far as bandwith goes). If you didn't know, you can get firmware version 2.38 from the main page of this site.

    In respect to vpn, check out the quickvpn setup sticky up above. I use my wrv54g as an endpoint "all of the time" and have no issues. If you're having a problem getting the vpn hooked up, it's most likely a settings issue (probably something simple...). Drop us all a little info and I'm sure one of us will be able to walk you through it...

    Make sure you have absolutely NO access restrictions. A known bug (to
    us) -- there is another thread about it on this board

    I've reported the download speed problem (as have others) to Linksys. Just to clarify, the download speed get clobbered if you have set up any outgoing access restrictions. Incoming access restrictions do have any impact on the router's throughput. (Firmware 2.38.)
