First time testing DD-WRT, and tried a file transfer from one computer to the other (using a windows file share).

Using gigabit LAN on the old firmware, I got the read/write speed of the slower drive (about 30MB/sec) and about %25 of bandwidth, but it varied greatly (from 10 to 30MB/sec, prob due to the HDDs involved)

Now with DD-WRT, I'm getting a constant transfer speed of exactly 3.98MB/sec(+-0.03) with a constant network use of 3.66%(+-0.1), and while doing a file transfer, remote desktop is slower because the network seems completely cap'd.

To me, that looks like some kind of bandwidth cap of come kind, but I can't figure out what would cause this. I really installed DD-WRT to use some kind of VPN in a school network, but if I can't get good file transfer speeds, it's really pointless.

I have a Linksys WRT310N

firmware version?
LAN to LAN? LAN to WLAN?
Both PC with Gigaethernet link established?

It seems to be a LAN-LAN transfer which would go through the internal switch without any interaction with the router's software (firmware), so it's probably something else causing the slowdown.
