Default Route causing speed problems

Hi there

I have a linksys BEFW11S4 router and its started to really slow down the conenction speed,
A direct connection from computer to modem gives me around 9meg speed but going through the router even if no other computers are connected halves this speed to about 4 meg. I ran a firmware upgarde to see if that would sort it but still the same.
no settings in the router config to my knowledge have changed and goin through it I can't find anything enabled that would slow the connection down.

Anyone any ideas? Also any recommendations for a new router (cable) wireless G or go for N?

thanks
Dave

Have you tried rebooting the router?

These are OLD routers with some very bad code and hardware. You can possibly get more speed out of it by disabling the SPI fierwall.

4 meg is about all you will get with one of those.
