Windows 7: Slow Downloads with Buffalo WZR-450HP2D DD-WRT Router

Slow Downloads with Buffalo WZR-450HP2D DD-WRT Router

I've connected a Buffalo WZR-450HP2D router to my modem in bridge mode and it's hard-wired to my desktop PC. My speed with my ISP is 100 mb/s. My downloads are extremely slow, like downloading a 60 MB file in 30 minutes. Connected directly to the modem, it takes a second. Are there any settings I need to change to get this working? The weird thing is, speedtest.net shows I'm getting more than my speed level. I had another Buffalo DD-WRT router that gave me my full speed as soon as I plugged it in, so maybe this one is faulty? Please give me some ideas. Thank you.

Did you try another port of the new router? Try chaining the old router between new one and PC?

There's only one possible port that can be used for the ISP's modem to be connected to, and that is the first port (a blue port). I sent the old router back to Buffalo. I may order another one.

Downloads with wireless router
I currently have a Belkin N150 Wireless Router For speeds up to 150Mbps. When I try to download a HD video that is about 2GB it takes about 5-7 hours. Do you think getting a new router would help with download speeds?

All, I installed a HP MV 2120 Media Vault to act as a mini-server for my media files. It has not been acting very reliable, dropping out when I transfer large (>1GB) files. The guys over at the Media Vault forum suggested I change my Linksys router for a Buffalo (WHR-HP-G54). I got the...
