Cisco Routers :: RV180 Decreases Internet Connection Speed?Mar 9, 2013
My internet connection speed, measured by speedtest.net with PC connected directly to cable modem, is ping=33ms, dn=48Mbps and up=7.6Mbps. (These values changes slightly with each test, sometimes being a bit higher and sometimes a bit slower, but usually being in the neighborhood of the 50Mbps promised by my ISP.) When this same test is run with the PC connected directly to a port on my RV180 (firmware version 188.8.131.52) the measured speed is ping=35ms, dn=30.66Mbps and up=7.45Mbps. Given that the RV180 is supposed to provide very fast WAN to LAN throughput (Small Net Builder's test result is 798Mbps dn and 811 up, measured with the same firmware version), why is my unit seemingly decreasing the internet connection (WAN) speed coming out of my cable modem? What, if anything, can I do to increase my WAN to LAN throughput?
