As you can see from the numbers, you'll find it hard to complain about the WRT54G's routing speed, which was evenly matched in both WAN-LAN and LAN-WAN directions. If 20Mbps isn't good enough for you, then I'm not sure you should be using a consumer-class router!
Note that the lack of UDP test results in the LAN to WAN direction isn't Linksys' fault, but a problem that Qcheck has with some newer routers. I'd expect actual performance to mirror that of the WAN to LAN UDP stream test results.
Routing Performance Test Results
|Test Description||Transfer Rate (Mbps)||Response Time (msec)||UDP stream|
|Throughput (kbps)||Lost data (%)|
|WAN - LAN||19.7||1 (avg) |
|LAN - WAN||21.7||1 (avg) |
|Firmware Version||1.01.14 Jan 27 2003|
