    Ok, now im wondering.. Why does a router download so slow when on p2p networks or downloading proggies (BT?) because when i disconnect my router and get on my normal dsl connection, its going at 89kbps (max) and when im on the router.. im getting speeds like 10-15kbps... any answers?

    If this has been mentioned before.. Link me to the topic please.. im downloading something so the pages are loading extremely slow.. Hence me starting this topic without searching.. =\

    do you have two computers hooked up. on some routers it will cut the dl speed in half when you have 2 computers hooked up

    I dont know how to open all the ports on my router.. (Linksys BEFSR41) and no.. it stays that speed for 5 hours (longest ive ever kept it on with a router)

    PORT FORWARDING. learn how to forward the ports. that's not the same thing as opening the ports. if you don't forward the ports, a router simply kills your p2p programs like kazaa & bittorrent.

    my router works fine and I didn't do any port forwarding,for that matter I don't even know how.LOL
    My speeds vary,as do everybodies speeds but I still hit some high speeds depending on what I am getting and who i am getting it from.
