D-Link DSL-G604T all-in-one DSL wireless router/wired switch performanceissues

  1. Hi

    I've been noticing a slowdown accessing a couple of my wired machines
    over the last few months and I'd thought there was a hardware issue with
    one of them: after managing to transfer with a crossover cable at full
    pelt I began to suspect the switch itself.

    Now the D-Link G604T, like many similar units, has a DSL modem, wifi AP
    and 4-port 10/100 switch built-in.

    To check it I just put in an 8-port 10/100 switch with all the wired
    machines connected to it and a single connection into the router and -
    as if by magic - network speed rocketed. Even traffic across the
    built-in bridge (ie between the wired and wireless) is faster.

    Is this a known issue with the D-Link boxes? Or do you think the box is
    just faulty? Or am I missing something obvious?

    Cheers

    Geoff

    Never noticed these symptoms and I have used lots of that unit. They do
    lock up occasionally but a power recycle cures this.
