I have recently installed a Linksys BEFSR41  4 port dsl router in my house with a PC and a Mac currently plugged in to it.  The line speed that I have currently set up with my ISP is 128kps.  With just one computer plugged into the router I get about 115kbs but when I have the other plugged in the PC is at 88Kbps and the Mac is 60 Kbps.  Is there any way to boost the speed?  I have not yet upgraded the firmware, but would this make such a big difference?  Any help mwould be greatly appreciated.

What fw do you have on it now?  I forget what mine is currently (I have the same router) but I've read about problems with the newer fw that is available, so I'm staying put...
