Hi all,

I'm new in this group. Hope to find some answers for my LAN.

In a few days, I will be hooked up to a 20 mbit internet connection (through
cable, not DSL, so it could actually be 20 mbit for real). I will be sharing
this connection with about 7 others.

I am wondering if my router can handle the bandwidth of the internet
connection. I have a Sitecom WL-176 Wireless Network Storage Router 54g
Turbo.

Only the wired throughput really matters, sure WiFi interests me, but it is
not my major concern. Obviously, it does not need to have a 100 mbit
throughput, because the internet connection will be 20.

I've searched the web for information about this router but I cannot find
the answer. I am hoping someone here can tell me more. Thanks!

Sitecom customer support tested the router for me and they tell me it has a
maximum of 40 mbps. The one who tested it got a 39.7 WAN>LAN throughput so
that should be enough for my use.

Thanks.
