    I belong to An FTP and for the past 2 weeks its been running very slowly. I normally run at 600kb/s all the time and lately it's been 30-80kb/s. Absolutely rediculous. I emailed the people and they told me that it's because its during the evening when everyone else is trying to do the same thing which is not true because I left it on all night and day and still runs at the same speed. I emailed them again and they said it could be that my ISP could be affecting the route to the FTP but my ISP doesn't do that...Everything else I download goes much faster so it's not my connection.

    Anyone have any ideas?:hs:

    they could be packet shaping traffic over port 21 to restrict just ftp transfers.

    What can I do to get around that and what can I do to find out if that is the case? I wouldn't think road runner would do something like that


    EDIT: and if it is the case that road runner is restricting the ftp transfers....is there anything I can do (call them up?) I haven't used the ftp very much in the week or 2 prior to this being tuned down like this

    Well my other friends who have it have fine speeds. Since it's shared I would imagine if I got shit speeds so would everyone else

    Yeah, the WRT54G is defective until you put DD::WRT or OpenWRT on it. Even then... why buy broken, defective hardware?

    I don't know what dd::WRT or openWRT is. care to elaborate? Anyway I hear (now) that the wrt54g sucks... and that the wrt54gl is the way to go...

    DIR-655 is fast.

    Lookup router speed ratings.
