I have a D-Link SMC7004VBR hooked up to my cable modem, sharing 2 computers. I have dynamic IP. That's about it. Now why is it running so freaking slow? Are routers not the best solution for cable connections, because if I dirrectly hook up the computer, it's atleast 5 times as fast? This dosn't make sense to me, why should it run 5 times as slow, even when only one computer is being used. I'd also like to say I hooked up the router while I was away at school to a DSL connection and it ran just fine, fast and everything.

I also need to know how to set up a DMZ on one of the computers.

Thanks all.

yeah both are fast if conected to the modem ONLY. But I am using a router to split the conection (from the cable modem) to two computers. It runs like a dial up connection when going through the router even if one of the computers is turned off.

I'd check readme's and datasheet for known conflicts between your modem and router, assuming it works on other kit. Does the modem work with another router?

Perhaps a firmware issue?
