I previously ran a home network with just a regular hub and my bandwidth my awesome on both machines(over 300 kb/s downloads). I recently installed a netgear router to replace my little hub and everything went well. However I noticed that my bandwidth has decreased by about half and I cannot figure out why. The regular hub had no switchs built in like the router. You would think the router would be just as fast or even faster, but its about half the speed. Even if my second pc is off, it is still the same. Both machines are 1.4 ghz athlons with 512 mb ddr, so its not the pc's. Any ideas. I'm running win98se. Can I tweak anything in 98se to increase my bandwidth?
