Hello guys. I have a E1000 running on DD-WRT v24-sp2 (05/03/11) mini. My ISP is providing 30Mbps download and 5Mbps upload. However, when connected via the router, I only get about 25Mbps download and 2.4Mbps upload. If I connect my laptop directly to the ISP modem, I get 35Mbps and 5Mbps (so actually 5Mbps higher than my ISP is suppose to give).

Why the loss in bandwith with the E1000? I don't really care for the download, but the upload makes a big difference going from the 5 to 2.4Mbps. I only realised this because the ISP just recently upgraded the upload from 2.5Mbps to 5Mbps. When it was only 2.5Mbps, I was still getting about 2.3-2.4Mbps via the E1000. I have restarted the modem/router multiple times to try and refresh, but no luck.

I've read that but it doesn't seem to be the same problem. The upload should not be that small when we only talk about 5Mbps.

Problem solved. I had an old QoS that had my old bandwith upling and downlink speeds.

On a side-note, if I set the uplink and downlink higher than my actual ISP speeds, does it affect the QoS in a negative way? Shouldn't the priority classes just juggle the traffic if a higher priority class demands more bandwith?
