ive had my linksys wrt54g router for almost 3 years now. for the last year or so it has been slowing my connection down quite a bit. especially in games. in steam i only load about 40 servers on the master server list and my ping averages about 60. when im plugged directly into my modem i load about 12000 servers and my ping is usually 15. right now im wired to my router so its not the wireless thats slowing it down. i plan to move my pc back upstairs when i get my new monitor and i would like to try to resolve this problem. i plan on getting a new router within the next couple of months but i would like to solve this problem in the meantime.
