Thank you again, sabretooth. I am amazed you would need encryption to get a faster connection. I always thought the overhead of encryption slowed data rates. And I would hope a router would be smart enough in its firmware to do as you suggest, namely choose non-overlapping channels as an initial setting in the Auto setting. I will keep you informed. Thanks again.

Thank You!!!! My speed has returned. The trick was disabling WMM. I have no idea what WMM does but it cut my speed by 1/2. Thank you for your suggestions. I appreciate your help.

Thanks, jsrobison. I too have Comcast. I guess something must not be setup correctly. If Cisco decides to update our Classic firmware I will see what settings are incorrect. I'm not showing any IPv6 connection but that may be because Comcast has not activated it in my neighborhood. By the way, you have a sweet connection, I'm jealous.
You got it correct there. IPV6 should be working behind your modem first so that you can have it working behind the router.

I wonder how much faster I might be if I had the wireless driver updates to the Classic firmware that are in the Cloud firmware. Unless Cisco agrees to maintain the Classic firmware, which is what I bargained for with my purchase, by the 4th of July, US Independence Day, I shall return this router and declare my independence from Cisco. As a Verizon ad once said, "Can you hear me now?"
