Linksys WRT54GSV4 and Fios

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys!

I wanted to know if there have been any known issues with the Linksys WRT54GSV4 and FIOS connections?  I've had my FIOS installed for over a year now but had to swap out my old Linksys Wireless router with this one a few months back.  When I originally had my old router connected to FIOS I would average 13-14m download and 1.99m upload.  Last night and this morning I decided to check my speeds and I would average anywhere from 3m - 8m download.  Here are my recent results:

::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 3873 Kbps about 3.9 Mbps (tested with 2992 kB)

Download Speed is:: 473 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net  (main)

Test Time:: 2006/03/11 - 9:11am

Bottom Line:: 69X faster than 56K 1MB Download in 2.16 sec

Tested from a 2992 kB file and took 6.328 seconds to complete

I downloaded Cablenut and used the 15/2 Fios Config file but still no luck.  Also, the above results are from my PC that is wired to the router.  Any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

hi stevcha and welcome to the forum

i hope some one later on the topic can help you a bit more then me

i don't have fios and i haven't heard of any specific problems with fios and that router but what i can tell you is this

1- V4 is not the most popular of version, a lot of people complain about general problems with the V4 version of that router

2- normally people have this fluctuation of speeds when they using wireless not your case

3- is any one else using the INTERNET in your house when you doing the test ?
