    Router Problems with Road Runner Turbo

    We just upgraded to Roadrunner Turbo. When we try to use this service w/ our router (Wireless G Access Point by Linksys; its about a year old, tops) the internet becomes ridiculously slow. Im not sure exactly what speed, but it was loading about the same as dial up AOL would, and when I tried to reset it, it became even slower and eventually stopped working all together.

    Turbo is working just fine without the router though (downloading at 13818 kb/s). Does anyone know if there is a special type of router that is needed for high speed internet?

    Change your wan port of your router to 100 full duplex to do that log on to your routers inteferface ,and wan settings it might be under a different tab though.

    Same deal for me.. upgraded yesterday to turbo. only getting half the downstream as w/out router. It was probably similiar before i upgraded, just now tested.

    I'm running a befsr41 v2 old as dirt. It has no wan settings that i can see.

    Any advice? sorry for the hijack but pretty much same problems here.

    After further reading I'm seeing max wan throughput is 10mbs on the v2


    On another note, Have RR check your lines, i had a kink in one cable that was f'n with the signal strength. It wasnt even noticeable till the upgrade.

    for the hyjacker you might want to look into routers with faster wan ports I use a dlink dir 625 which can support higher speeds.
