RVS4000 - How do I achieve maximum Data Throughput

      I have little experience in configuring a router.  I also have no idea what the maximum Data Througput can be for this router. 

Right now, the router is limiting my internet speed compared to what the cable modem can provide..

So far, I know that when I connect my computer directly to the output of the Motorola Cable Modem and run a Speed Test on my Charter cable connection, the test shows ~ 50 Mbps for downloads and ~5 Mbps for uploads.  That would be great, but I have multiple computers and need to use  a router/gateway to feed my LAN.  When I insert the RVS4000 router between modem and computer, the Speed Test results drop to ~ 16 Mbps for downloads and remain ~ 5 Mbps for uploads.  During that test, there were no other computers online via the router.  While 16 Mbps is not shabby, I would like to achieve the full value... is that possible?

Is the RVS4000 unit capable of 50 Mbps for 30 Mbps?  How do I setup the router to achieve the maximum available download speed?

There is a setup page for the router which has settings right now set at 50000 Kbps Upload and 60000 Kbps for Download; this implies to me that the router is capable of such speeds.

Anybody, please give me a hint on what step to take next to resolve this issue, if possible..

Thanks

Hi James, you may disable the IPS and you will likely see what you expect.
