Very slow WAN speed (RV180)

Level 1
Level 1

My brand new RV180 seems not to be able to exceed 1.1 MB/s WAN download speed. Using a simple Linksys WRT-320N I used to have 5-6 times this speed.

Value is with default settings, various sources (HTTP/NEWS downloads). Trying to improve this wit QoS-settings dows not improve this in any way.

What am I missing here? This cannot be normal, I hope.

Seems to be another firmware bug. After finding a similar posting on low WAN speeds, I changed the DOMAIN name (in LAN network settings, IP4) back to default 'Cisco' and after applying this, speed is back to normal!!

Changing it back to the name I had set originally, does not undo the solution.

Unfortunatly; after a reboot the problem is back!!

I really hope the next firmware (whenever it eventually does get released) resolves the many bug that apparently are in the RV180.
