freitasm: The point is that DonG spent a fair bit of time last year complaining about his personal experience with a certain ISP and lack of speed, and after some digging the community managed to find the bottleneck was his own equipment, which was limiting speeds to less than half his line was capable.
Yip MF's quite right... we had a power cut here and when it came back it toasted the box I was using as a gateway/router.
I had an SPA2102 at hand and realised it was a router, so just put it in place to act as a router until I got the replacement Mikrotik programmed up.
With 100mbit interfaces on it, it never occurred to me that the Cisco Linksys SPA2102 would only route 6.5% line rate, or 6.5mbits/s.
The joke was on me and I'm guessing I'll be buying rounds of beer on the bar for decades to come over that one.
