I signed up for OOL Boast which claim 30Mbps downstream and 2Mbps upstream.
I am only getting like 5-6/1.5.
My cable modem is connected to a Netgear WTG624 v2 router and on that is connected to a wireless hub and a print server.
Through the router I get the speeds listed above.
When I plug the cable modem directly to the computer I get speeds in the area of 27/1.8.
Should the router slow down the speed that much???
Is there a setting that might be off??
I have the newest firmware installed on the router.
Make sure your only running to support Wireless G only and not both Wireless G and B. (G and B is usually the default). Supporting both drops the entire connection down to the slowest which is B (around 10 Mbps).
