Hi there. I recently noticed I wasn't getting near the advertised speed from my ISP on my WiFi connection. I am paying for 30Mbps, and on WiFi am only getting around 12Mbps. I found out that my Netgear WGR614v9 wireless g router can't handle that kind of speed. As a work around, I thought I would use one of the ethernet outs on the Netgear to hook up my Xbox 360 and my gaming desktop so that at least those two got the best possible connection. After I did this, I didn't notice an improvement. Using my laptop, I checked the connection speed via ethernet coming out of the modem and it consistently measures at 60Mbps, but the ethernet out of the router only measures at around 12Mbps (no faster than WiFi). Somehow, my connection speed is getting bottlenecked in the router and I have no idea why. I figured 60Mbps in should equal near 60Mbps out when using ethernet, but this isn't the case. What could be wrong?
