I was only getting ~15Meg down and a miserable 200K upstream with Tomato USB installed on my ASUS RT-N16. When I switched back to stock ASUS firmware I get 21 Meg down and 4.1 Meg upstream. What settings do I need to set to get Tomato

Anyone have any suggestions on settings to get Tomato-USB to have faster download and especially upload speeds with Comcast /Arrisi cable modem with phone connection? I was able to get 21M down / 4M up directly connected to the modem. I tried both my ASUS RT-N16 with Tomato USB and my old Linksys WRT54GS with Tomato and got he same issue only 200K upstream. I even tried an old Linksys BEFSR81 with stock firmware and it I got only 8M down, but 4M up. Only after replacing Tomato USB on my ASUS RT-N16 with stock firmware was I able to get 21M down and 4M up. I'm not a router guru, but am a techie and would like to know if anyone on this board can explain what settings or what would cause this issue. I've never had a problem with Tomato before but I was always using it with PPPOE with DSL and now I just have it set as DHCP.
Thanks to anyone who can explain what is going to me!
I use the comcast arris modem and rt-n16 and get 22 down/4 up. I would try taking the battery out of the arris and unplugging it for a minute so it does a full reboot. I also found that tomato build 52 is the latest build that runs stable on the rt-n16.
Thanks I was running the latest build 54. I'll probably just stick with the stock firmware for now. I'll have to look at what advantages I'd get going back to Tomato-USB. I'm thinking of getting an ASUS RT-N56 which has better throughput and dual band wireless.
Check QoS settings. I don't recall if it is a default value or not, but after suffering from an upstream rate that always seemed to be limited to 200 Kbps I noticed that the outbound "Max Bandwidth Limit" was set to 230 Kbps. Boosting that to an appropriate value resulted in seeing the full bandwidth.
