Hi,

I have DDWRT on Linksys E3000. Now I thought of going back to the original firmware since network speed (iwreless is bad). Didn't find out how to adjust that.
However I could put a wireless extender and disable wireless on my Linksys.

Now I wonder if the 1gb ports are supported on the DDWRT. I see only 100 mbs whereas I need 1gb. If not possible I'll definetely go back to Linksys firmware.

Thanks,
J.

Based on this link, Gigabit works for E3000.

Try a better cable. What version of DDWRT are you using. Is it new than the version mentioned in the link?

Cable can't be the issue. With the original firmware it was 1gb.
My version is Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/12/10) mega, not sure to which version I should go to have a stable OS.

Seems to be ok, but wireless is only 64 mb instead of 300?!
Please tell me which version to up or downgrade to, I don't find it anywhere.

What seems to be okay? The gigabit ports on the router are showing gigabit now? I do know that the 64Mb has nothing to do with the gig ports. This has more to do with the band you are using 2.4 or 5 band. Also the nic card. If it is 802.11n draft I think they are slower, like up to 150M instead of 300M.

Yes, LAN ports show 10gb (?!), tried a copy of several gb and it's fast indeed.
