I re-aranged my desktop and have the router disconnected. I still have the windows firewall turned on - I did a port test at http://www.grc.com and it came up stealth, by the way - Anyway, My connection seems to be faster without the router hooked up. Can anyone explain this ?? I just find it odd to think that a hardware item like that could cause a slow down in connection speed ..
