    Slow Internet With DD-WRT

    I have a TP-Link TL-WR1043ND router flashed with DD-WRT. When I use this router, my internet is about 1/3 the speed it should be. I've bypassed the router and with just the modem and it has a normal speed. If I use an older, retired Belkin router, I also have normal speeds, so something is wrong with the DD-WRT router. Any ideas? Help much appreciated.

    Sorry about the late reply, I haven't had time to lately. I got the router to work as normal... I had set is as client bridge simply because I wanted to see how to do it. I did a hard reset to return the router to its normal function, and that's when I ran into the 1/3 internet speed problem. I finally tried a factory reset (from within DD-WRT) and it got it to work right... don't know why the hard reset didn't fix it, but something wasn't working that now is.
