Ok using latest build r47665 now. Speed is fine for ftp at 15-18MBS but if I make a SCP connection to the router the speed gets capped at 5MBS. If I restart the router the speed returns to normal. I have my router set to restart once a day. I can only guess this is the same problem as build r47510 and I must have someone or something trying to make a SCP connection to my router and causing this.

Just describing the collision between SSH/FTP you found is not enough to try guess whats going on, this is not a typical issue.
IMO you could have tried to restart the proftpd service after using SCP or even restarting SSH or both services from command line as a test and making sure you have syslog/klog enabled to see if there are any messages that maybe relevant and perhaps shed some light on this issue.
Also, you dont say if you are downloading via wired/wireless, which could also be relevant and something you may want to also test to try to isolate the problem to a specific setup.
Else your guess is just as valid as any guess what is actually going on.
If I had to guess, something must be consuming too much CPU or other resource depending on whats actually being used and that in turn affects the speed.
Restarting the services, one at a time after using ftp/scp to trigger the issue, is a better alternative for debugging or working around, since it can be automated if it needs be.
