Well since the original poster abandoned this thread and rather than starting a new one I'll just take over this one. So I a have a few questions. My download speed was averaging .5 Mbps with upload being 1.9 Mbps. This was before I found this site and signed up. So after looking over my cable connections I realized that the cable is split twice before it reached the modem which is followed a router. So I removed one split and retested.

Now my connection is inconsistent. At one point my download speed was up to 4.9 then dropped back to about 1.1. I remember when I first moved to my apartment, my connection was downloading at 7-9 Mbps. Now here's the last test I just did.

I have a netgear router WGR614V9 and at the time of the test there were no other computers connected or using the network.

My question is 1) is it normal for this type of inconsistent results, 2) based of this info, do you think there is anything I can do to improve my connection and 3) could it all be my router's fault? It is a little beat up and old. Thanks in advance!
