19.7Mbits/sec for the WRT54G. See: 33.7Mbits/sec for the WRT54GS. See:
Try:other WEB100 NDT server. Look at the "More Details" and "Statistics" buttons and see if they're complaining about MaxMTU, RWIN, or other parameters. Also try: see if it also complains about MaxMTU, RWIN, etc. This is probably NOT the problem since the directly connected computah works as expected, but it's worth a try to see if something related is screwed up.
Any chance that you might be:
- Running 10mbits/sec on the PC or router ethernet port? 10baseT-HDX will yield about 6Mbits/sec maximum. 10baseT-FDX will do up to about
- Running 100baseTX-HDX (half duplex)? (NWAY failure) This will result in erratice thruput. You can see the errors with: Start -> run -> cmd netstat -es | more
- Have you tweaked the default receive window (RWIN) for the increased speed?
- Borrow a different computer and see if it does the same thing.
- Crappy cables?
