Router bottleneck?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm currently subscribed to rogers' extreme package. I upgraded from express a few months ago and just realized that I should be getting 15mbps down.

Before I had 10mbps down and my download speed was a constant 900kBps.
With this new package I'm not seeing a difference in speed.

Could it be the router limiting it? The router I'm using is a Linksys WRT54G and I'm not sure of which variant it is, if it even is a variant model. (its wireless btw. the connection to my computer is wired tho.)

Or is it something wrong with Rogers' end? I will call them tomorrow to see whats up.

Impossible to tell with SOHO routers like that. How are you testing your throughput speed? Have your tried transferring some files over your LAN as a benchmark?

Try a firmware upgrade.
Check that your nic is set to full duplex or to auto config
Check whats your mtu value

What modem are you using?

Some routers can cause a bottleneck. When I upgraded to turbo, my router couldn't handle it at all. Like they said, see if there is a firmware upgrade.

You also need to have Mac Address filtering and you need to be using WPA2-PSK encryption. People stealing your bandwidth can also cause a bottleneck.
