I'm using a Netgear FVS318v3 firewall with the latest firmware (as of 5.21.2010). I have a 32 meg internet connection comming into the WAN port but I can only get 6.5 meg at best on any devices connected to the firewalls LAN...

I test 32 meg DL buy connecting directly to the modem and running

I test 6.5 meg DL by connecting to the firewall and the firewall connected to the modem and running

Any thoguhts?

Is that 32 Megabyte or 32 mega bit?
Is the port on the firewall 10 or 100 mbit/sec?
Firewalls will slow the connection abit due to processing.
