I am on Comcast and get 5.5 down when I am connected directly to my modem.  When I connnect to my linksys router I get the following:

:::.. Download Stats ..:::

Connection is:: 581 Kbps about 0.6 Mbps (tested with 748 kB)

Download Speed is:: 71 kB/s

Tested From:: https://testmy.net/ (server2)

Test Time:: Mon Oct 03 2005 23:09:10 GMT-0500 (US Eastern Standard Time)

Bottom Line:: 10X faster than 56K 1MB download in 14.42 sec

Diagnosis: May need help : running at only 13.37 % of your hosts average (comcast.net)

Validation Link:: https://testmy.net/stats/id-JBN3MS5PE

This is sick the router is a wrt54gs 3.0

Any help is appreciated.  I hard wired into the router and got crappy results there too.

Do you have any firewalls on?

Welcome to the forum scooter1219,

I to have a wrt54gs v2 router and it works fine.  Do you have the latest firmware and have you looked at the links below. it is well worth your time to look it over very carfully:  In short though download Cablenut then download the VanBuren settings.  What is your advertised download and upload speeds from Comcast.  Mine is 6000 Kbps and 384 Kbps up.

P.S. What version of firmware do you currently have?  Is it 4.70.6 cause I don't see a version 3 wrt54gs listed on the download page at linksys!
