I have Shaw's 150/15 Business service with one static IP address. I have two routers, one is a LinkSys EA7500-CA Max-Stream that I use for personal use, and the other is a LinkSys LRT224 Dual Gigabit router that I use for my business.
The problem: The LinkSys LRT224 router will not provide the proper throughput, it maxes out at about 100MBps.
The LinkSys EA7500-CA router works perfectly, providing 150MBps+ throughput, in either DHCP or static IP configuration.
I just don't see what is different between the two modems. Both are new models, and I don't understand why one works and the other doesn't.
I need to be able configure the LRT224 to provide the maximum throughput for the Shaw 150 Business Internet service that I have.

Are you testing both routers at the same location with the same cables connecting them to the modem and PC? If you are it could be a auto negotiation issue which can be tested by putting a cheap gigabit switch between the modem and LRT
