We have recently switched from DSL to cable and have purchased a 100Mb connection which if we connect a laptop direct to the modem we receive. However when we connect our Cisco RV180 router to the modem it throttles the speed to 14Mb.


Has anyone else come across this problem and how do we resolve, yes, we have read the manual but it doesn't address the issue of the router choking connection speed.

Assuming the router is capable of functioning as intended, try resetting by disconnecting power to the router for a minute or so.


Perhaps the QOS settings are the problem. Link to your manual: Cisco RV180 /RV180W Administration Guide

It's wan port can do 10/100/1000 so you are good there.


Might want to reset back to factory settings and start fresh.
