WNDR4000 limiting speeds?!

My WNDR4000 seems to be limiting the speeds that I subscribe to through my ISP. I used the TCP/IP optimizer through speedguide.net to ensure that my computer has the correct tcp settings, but I'm still only getting a maximum of 60 mbps when I subscribe to 100 mbps. I'm wondering if my computer is just too old, but it does have a Gigabit ethernet adapter and it's directly connected to the router. Is there something I'm missing?
PS, I don't know 100% what I am talking about... I'm just starting to learn this stuff but any help would be very much appreciated.
Thanks!

not sure if 4000 has less WAN-LAN throughput spec but ask support on this model what is the WAN-LAN throughput spec

Re: WNDR4000 limiting speeds?!

isn't the WNDR4000 just a router, rather than a modem/router?
could it be the modem you are using that is hampering your speed.

like you, i'm not 100% i know what i'm talking about, ever!

Re: WNDR4000 limiting speeds?!

4000 is router indeed.

in most cases newer unit can handle 100Mbps on WAN-LAN throughput.

also speed test should be used with pc wired the router to insure avoid latency etc on wireless connectivity.

other issues can be because broadband modem/router and wndr4000 is not setup correctly can/may cause some issues.

see router setup on my sig below to check
