    k well whenever i use the lcd to check how fast the data is moving on the wired networks it always says 1kbs - 2kbs recieve and send. when it is obviously alot faster. im using cat 5e cables. and everything is gigabit. btw it only tells me this on the lcd screen built on the router. no matter if im gaming browsing or downloading. i also have a 360 a ps3 my laptop connect via lan cable (cat 5e) if anyone else has this router can u tell me the readins its giving u.

    You may want to verify that if it says Kbs or Mbs it will switch automatically when you start utilizing bandwidth.

    I just wish I could find a way to keep the OLED display on all the time.

    Try updating your firmware for the router or opening ports specifically for the games you play.
