Is this an older PC with an old network card ...if so check to see if it network card needs a new driver. Or if you are lucky maybe its just a bad Ethernet cable between your PC and router?

BTW, are you able to connect the PC using wireless?

I was getting the same problem with the V1, even with DD-WRT firmware. So I really wonder what is my issue...

For information, I got an Iomega network drive on the network as well, but even if I unplugged it, it doesn't fix the issue.

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance!
Try turning off UPNP in the router - the factory firmware is bugged there, and causes problems like you've observed - since DD-WRT is based off the old WRT54G, it inherited that bug.

Well, that's quite strange. I switched back to Wifi and now, my internet speed is alright, 2mb/sec like normal. But then, Youtube videos don't stream anymore... I thought it was something else and after several attemps to fix this, I decided to switch back to Ethernet. Now, youtube videos are working back again, but my speed is inconsistant..

I got two theories;

1. When I install the last version of Adobe Flash Player, I was probably in wired mode.
2. My router wired connection OR my motherboard ethernet connection got an issue.

I tried several ethernet cables and it doesn't change a thing. UPNP is disabled btw.

Any ideas?

Default New e4200 V2 firmware 2.0.37.131676 includes WPS fix

I just confirmed ( after reading comments in Cisco's Home Community forum) that the new V2 firmware 2.0.37.131676 includes the WPS fix. Once updated you have to go back into the Wireless/Wireless Settings/menu and select or reselect the Wi-fi Protected Setup. Then you will see the additional menu items to include new features to enable or disable WPS.

Configuration View ( Under Wireless/Wireless Settings)

Manual Wi-Fi Protected Setup™
WPS: Enable Disable

Looks like Cisco pulled 2.0.37 yesterday. Something must have been wrong with the firmware. Back to 2.0.36 for now
