    Ok, i'm a bit confused as to what i should do. I bought the WRT54GX2
    last year, and when plugged into the router theoretically i should get
    100mbps right? Ok, so that means that there shouldn't be abottleneck
    with speed when i'm getting about 9 mbps through my cable modem. But i
    am...and i have no idea why. The only thing that comes to mind is there
    is some sort of setting i have on thats just making it go really slow
    and i haven't the slightest as to what it could be.

    I just restored it to factory settings and upgraded to the newest
    firmware which is.
    Firmware Version: 1.01.22

    i turned off the firewall thinking maybe that was causing the slowdown
    but it didn't make any difference.

    I am using the wireless feature with 2 other computers in my house, but
    while i've been running these tests those computers have been off. So i
    don't think they're funneling the net away.

    But the slowdown is somewhere in this router. Is there some kind of
    optimziing that i need to do? I'm using comcast for the provider.

    thanks for all your help guys and gals, if you need more info i'd be
    happy to give whatever else is needed.

    Excuse me for asking a silly question, but what speed ARE you getting? Read
    your post twice, and it doesn't say.. You will NEVER EVER get any faster
    speed than the slowest component in your network, and all you mention in
    your post is about 9 Mbps from your cable modem.. Are you expecting more
    speed than your cable modem provides? if so, ain't gonna happen.....
