I'm on cable and have a few routers in my house (lab). Basically my setup is like this:

<---cable modem---->  <---cable router----->  <----cisco router-----><------switch------> Network 1 users
                                                                                 |
                                                                                 |
                                                                                 |
                                                                    <-----2nd Cisco Router--->                                                                    
                                                                                 |            
                                                                                 |
                                                                    <--------WAP-------->
                                                                         Network 2 users


Basically, any user on Network 1 has no problem. Get about 300kbps download speed. However, users in Network 2 are getting 59kbps!!!  What is up with that.   Netowrk 2 users are wireless yes, but they have full strength.  Also, things didnt get like this until I added a switch in network 1. Any ideas?

thanks

Remove switch in Net 1 and see if it corrects the issue.

If so, focus on it. Is there a loop? Is STP running?

If not, is Cisco router #1 performing proxy arp or something else that would interfere with router #2?

Are you NATting in 1 or 2? Is the cable router you mention NATting? Is it necessary? Cisco 1 can do anything it is doing... (except perhaps a second eth for $50...)
