Do not worry about it, mostly a firmware upgrade would fix this problem, try to download ur firmware version from linksys .com /downloads and upgrade it to the router , that would fix ur problem, or call 1800- 546-5797, linksys tech at the other end would help u to upgrade firmware and fix the problem, it not if u have any other w/ls devices in ur house ,mturn off them and then check,.

I installed the same router and had the same Poor Speed issue. I discovered, after much grief, the computers that are on the network have to support "WPA" security protocol to run at Full Speed. While my newer computer supports WPA my older machines (on the network) only support "WEP" (64 or 128 bit) a legacy security protocol. Since ALL the computers on the network have to have the same security settings in order to work, I had to Downgrade my computers setting to WEP and as a result, the performance is pretty lame. I now have to upgrade my older machines to WPA in order to enjoy the SPEED on the new Wireless N technology... Oh well, live and learn I suppose...

Mine won't pick up the depth when running over 20mps

Hi Billy

If you're referring to over 20 mph or 20 metres per second (about 60 mph), it sounds very much to me as if the transducer doesn't have a very good contact with the water at that speed.

Hope this helps you out.

My ISP is Mediacom and since I began using them I have had the same RCA / Thomson 425 Modem. This was years ago and during that time I have made the upgrade to "wireless network", 802.11g to...

Firstly it makes no difference if you have a wireless network on 802.11n unless all the devices on the network are using 802.11n adapters. This means if you have a router or a wifi phone working on basic 802.11g (55mbs data) the whole network will run at the speed of the slowest device.

Now about the Thomson modem DCM425 and the ISP service. The maximum speed Docsis 2.0 protocol can support is 38mbps. The maximum Docsis 3.0 offered in US is around 120mbs. The Max service offers about 20mps (see link) which means you are within the capacity of the cable modem.

Hope this helps.

Why does my router only put out 54mps and my connection is 100mps

Hello there,

The 54Mbps is your internet speed.

The 100Mbps is your maximum connection speed (meaning from PC to router)

Hope this helps.

Low connection speed

I understand that you are getting low wireless speed through the adapter. I would suggest you to upgrade the drivers for the adapter. If the issue persists, then please change the channel on the wireless router.

Hope this helps.

Bridge or Repeter mode.

It is possible but you will need to flash the router with custom firmware.

Here is how:

This is only possible if you have two wrt54-g routers that are of one of these types:

WRT54-G ver 1
WRT54-G ver 2

(there is a sticker on the bottom that can tell you what version it is)

This is the article that I followed and it workes great.

Somehow my own wireless connection is not being recognized. I noticed my speed is at 54mps and not 100%. I am hooked up to another Linksys and my computer is running very slow. When I see my own connection...


Thanks for responding. To me, my router was running before at 100 mps. I took a better look and someone, somehow has tapped into my computer. My computer tends to stop working in browsers and I keep getting notifications to block access. My own router is showing, however I cannot access it. I will have to refresh my network, and reenter my own network and get that creep off my system.

Thanks for your help.

Slow Speed on Wireless Connection

As you said , try upgrading your routers firmware, but the better fix would be for a n router with a n card you will have a proper synchronisation and good speed.. or else the speed will vary, for a g router and n card..

no not really, but 54mps is a wireless speed not the actual internet connection speed... if your lagging try wire the xbox and see if that fix's

you could also disable the wep/wpa security for the xbox and hardcode the xbox MAC address into your router
