I have just purchased optimum boost which gives me 30Mbps.
I connect the cable modem directly to the PC via 10/100 Ethernet card and I 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 the 10/100 ports to the PC's ethernet 10/100 card, the speed is halved.
I use the DI-614+ because I broadcast the internet wirelessly to a couple of laptops.
Does anyone have an idea why the speed would be degraded when we're not talking about the signal being transmitted wirelessly, all I'm doing here is using 10/100 to 10/100 via the router?
Thanks for any help, I called D-Link, got put through to a call center in India who told me my problem was my microwave oven would you believe*sigh*.
