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 www.speakeasy.net/speedtest
I test 6.5 meg DL by connecting to the firewall and the firewall connected to the modem and running www.speakeasy.net/speedtest
More aboutnetgear fvs318v3 throughput issue
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.
