The FVS318 does have fairly modest throughput. I did some benchmarking a while back, and though I don't have the numbers at hand, my recollection is that the WGR614v8 (equiv to the WGR614L) had wan-lan (ie download) throughput exceeding 50Mbps running standard NETGEAR firmware.

I upgraded my Road Runner bandwidth to 20 Mbps and my present router (Netgear FVS318) is only bringing in 6-7Mbps. I need to find a faster router. It's very hard to find the input speeds on routers these days, they all give the output speeds only. Any help would be welcome, thanks.
I'm testing with a 60Mbps connection with speedtest.net and only getting ~6Mbps. I think this router is under-powered for some of the higher BW services now coming available.
