DSL modem is slow with 831, ok with PC connected

This one is driving me crazy and have a TAC case on it, just have not heard back on it yet. I can only get 1.5 mbps with 831 router connected to dsl modem, but get 3 mbps or better with PC connected to same modem, has anyone seen this before? Have try two different modems and ISP has run a loop test with is good.


Re: DSL modem is slow with 831, ok with PC connected

Are you getting a full duplex connection when the PC is directly connected, but not when the 831 is?

Can I assume you're using the same PC in both the 'directly connected' and 'through-the-831' scenarios'? If so, is the PC getting a good default route to the 831 (showing up in the dos window "route print" command output?). I'd also make sure you're full duplex on the PC-to-831 link in addition to the 831 to DSL modem connection.
