NVidia driver download slows to a crawl on Linksys E1200

January 8, 2013 2:19:59 AM

I am having trouble downloading the 310.90 driver from nVidia's website. My download will start around 300 KB/s (which is pretty normal) but after 5 minutes will slow all the way down to 8 KB/s. Yesterday it slowed down to 4 B/s (yes, only a few bytes per second). I am at 82 out of 169 MB downloaded. I tried to let it finish overnight last night and it was chugging away at 4 B/s in the morning.

I am using a new router, Linksys E1200. I had lots of problems with the Cisco firmware so I put DD-WRT t on it. So far I have not had any problems. I was wondering if someone could suggest a particular router setting to check. Or are other people experiencing problems downloading from nVidia?

I am using default settings in DD-WRT, except I have turned off QoS. I've tried http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Router_Slowdown but it really didn't make a noticeable difference.
