max internet speed of router and isp?

Specs: Windows 7
hi there i am trying to figure out what the fastest internet speed i can use with my router.
i have a linksys WRT150N running ddwrt and also have access to a netgear WNR2000 router.

i am switching from dsl to time warner and they offer 7mb, 15mb, and 30mb internet. i dont think i will consider the 30 but i would get the 15mb if my router can pass it though. i hope i am using the correct terminology but i just know that i have seen reviews on routers where people have stated that they can not get their full speed when using a router since it is older.

please help.

Read the spec's on both devices. Just google "make/model specifications" and you should get a direct link. If that doesn't work, go to the manufacturer's website.

I'd wager the max speed on the WAN port would be 100 Mbps on both.

I didnt know exactly what i was looking for.

this site doesnt mention it

http://kbserver.netgear.com/datashe...

this site http://www.mydigitalentertainer.com... says Five 10/100 Ethernet ports (1 WAN port, 4 LAN ports) .

if that is the case does that mean it will pass through the full speed of the internet even if i go with say 15 and 30 internet?

I quickly googled linksys WRT150N and the very first link that came up lead to the following page:

http://reviews.cnet.com/routers/lin...

About halfway down the page was the following heading:

Expansion / Connectivity

and under that was the following information:


Interfaces LAN : 4 x Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45,
WAN : 1 x Ethernet 10Base-T/100Base-TX - RJ-45

Where 10Base-T/100Base-TX means it's capable of both. Which is to say, it can handle anything from a 1 to 100 Mbps connection.

So for you this means, no matter what package you go with, your WAN port is faster.
