    Linksys router+cable modem= slower speed??

    i recently removed my chepo 5 port hub and installed the Linksys 4 port Cable/DSL router. before the router i was paying the extra 10 bucks a month for the second IP address. then i finally went out and purchased the router. i installed it and followed the instructions to configure it properly (i think).

    i got both computers running off the router now and they both seem to be noticably slower than before. with or without the SG tweaks it makes no diffrence.

    is there anyone in the Toronto area using Rogers@Home cable and running the linksys router? i neded to know if i indeed set up the router correctly. can anyone give me step by step instructions to properly configure the router? i think i have somthing set up wrong.

    both computers are running WinXP Pro.

    TCP options string = 020405b40103030301010402

    MTU = 1500
    MTU is fully optimized for broadband.

    MSS = 1460
    Maximum useful data in each packet = 1460, which is equal to MSS.

    Default Receive Window (RWIN) = 513920
    RWIN Scaling (RFC1323) = 3 bits
    Unscaled Receive Window = 64240
    RWIN is a multiple of MSS
    Other values for RWIN that might work well with your current MTU/MSS:
    256960 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 4)
    128480 (MSS x 44 * scale factor of 2)
    64240 (MSS x 44)

    bandwidth * delay product:
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 20556.8 kbps (2569.6 KBytes/s) @ 200ms
    Your RcvWindow limits you to: 8222.72 kbps (1027.84 KBytes/s) @ 500ms

    MTU Discovery (RFC1191) = ON

    Time to live left = 53 hops
    TTL value is ok.

    Timestamps (RFC1323) = OFF

    Selective Acknowledgements (RFC2018) = ON

    IP type of service field (RFC1349)= 00000000

    Try this:

    goto your linksys router web-based configuration page,
    click on the Advanced tab, this opens the Filters tab.

    Last item on the list is MTU. Try Enable and 1500 as
    the size.

    This is what mine is set at and I'm getting 85% of my rated speed cap.

    I'm using the BEFSR41 4 Port version.

    If you are looking for speed thru a router then you need a router with good speed the NexlandISB SOHO it is more money than your linky but you do get what you pay for.
