Router Throughput

Last Modified: 2013-12-14
I've got a client who has an extremely fast internet connection and when a computer is connected directly they get phenomenal speeds, however once a router/gateway is connected it's limiting overall throughput.
  We need a router because this connection serves an office with several servers, we just tried some speed tests etc connecting directly vs through the router to confirm the bottleneck.

   Router is RV042

 Would we need to move to some kind of Cisco router that can handle more bandwidth/throughput???
