10/100 and 30Mbps Internet

I have a 30Mbps internet connection.

I connect my cable modem directly to my pc's 10/100 ethernet card and get as good as 30Mbps.

However, when I connect the cable modem to my D-Link DI-614+ and then run a cable from one of its 10/100 Ethernet ports to the PC's Ethernet

10/100 Ethernet card, the internet speed is halved. Is this because of the wireless broadcasting of the signal?

I called D-Link support which I think is in India. They're advice? Turn of my microwave oven. I am not kidding.

Any help is much appreciated.

Maybe it's just a limitation of the device in throughput from the WAN interface?
