    I support this sentence as well. AFAIK, there's no way to quicken the access speed to this crappy router.
    *Even upgrading it's firmware doesn't help.

    The only solution is to set your 2Wire to bridge mode and use another router.

    How to set to the bridge mode? What router ur recommend? It using another router the connection will be from WAN-to-WAN port of the 2 wire gateway and the new router, right?
