    I bought a WRT54G2 linksys and Im connected to it by ethernet cable. My ping has shot up from 60ms to 400-1000ms+ instantly, even when no other computers are connecting to the router. Ive tried looking around the admin settings and changing the MTU size but nothing helps.

    edit: using WPA2

    I ran into similar issues with my Super G, I ended up putting DD-WRT on it and that worked WAY better...
