Problems with speed and local ftp on D-LINK DI-524
I have DI-524 installed to share my cable modem connection to internet.
In my local networks there are 2 PC's and one laptop.
Laptop and one PC works well, connection speed is as good as without the router but the second PC has terryfing slowed down.
But the bigger problem is that it was my local ftp server (OpenSuSE 10.2 with latest patches) - now with router I can't download anything from it. I get "stalled" status even trying only to list the remote directory. When I connect the ftp to any other computer directly, everything works fine.
This PC has 3 network cards (it used to work as a gateway) and on the DI-524's DHCP LEASE LIST I've it 3 times with different IP's and MAC's (beacuse I've tried all of them, thinking something's wrong with network cards) but with the same network name.
I've also noticed that when I try to download ftp via router both computers (downloader and ftp), on the 'Active Sessions' in router management site, are listed only on the UDP to the DNS from my ISP.

You may have to open the port that opensuse uses in your routers settings, this will probably be called something similair to virtual servers or within the firewall settings, you will have to enter the port number that the programme uses and allocate the number against the ip address of the pc that is connecting.
The fact that you have 3 cards in one pc may confuse matters for the router,so probably dissabling two of them may prove to be another solution to the problem

try rebooting your cable modem by unplugging it then after 15 seconds plug it back in. let it come up, then reboot your router and wait til it comes up. If it still doesn't connect then there may be an issue with the router. I'm guessing the cable modem is OK since you were able to post here. I was going to tell you to hard wire your computer to the cable modem as well.
Did you call Comcast and give them the new MAC address of the Motorola SB5101 SURFboard cable modem? I'm surpised it works at all without doing this first. This is the hardware address of your modem so the world can see you, no one in the world has the same MAC address, they are all different. It's on a sticker on the modem.
Yes, you can there;s no problem with it. if you already have that just connect it to your brooaadband connection of your DSL or Cable modem or any high speed internet and run the setup CD and that should cnfigure everything for you...

After you've rebooted your wireless router...make sure you reboot the cable-company (or DSL) modem while the router is connected to it and on. The modem seems to recognize the router properly only in this way.
Simply unplug the power to the cable-modem and plug it in again.
If the cable-modem has a battery back-up you'll want to remove that as well.
