Speed decreased when hooked up to the WRT300N

I have a quick question for you guys.  When I connect directly to the cable modem my download speeds are blazing fast.  Then when I connect to the wireless it dramitically decreases 384kb/s.  I have the ethernet cable from the cable modem to the wireless router then another ethernet cable from the wireless router to the computer.  Any help or suggestions?

Re: Speed decreased when hooked up to the WRT300N

I assume this is a new setup.  Is that correct?
 
If so, then this is most likely a router configuration problem or a modem problem.
 
1)  Please state the make and exact model number of your modem (not the WRT300N).
 
2)  Please state your ISP
 
3)  What Internet speed are you paying for?
4)  What Internet speed do you get when you connect directly to the modem?

Try few settings ... Wireless channel - 11 Click on Advanced Wireless settings>>Change the Beacon Interval to 75 >>Change the Fragmentation Threshold to 2304 Change the RTS Threshold to 2304 >>Click on "Save Settings" Check the speed of the router ..
