      Decent router speed, terrible actual speed

      By which I mean my router says this:

      ADSL Link Downstream Upstream
      Connection Speed 3776 kbps 768 kbps
      Line Attenuation 42.0 db 25.5 db
      Noise Margin 8.9 db 14.0 db

      But my actual downloads are never more than 20Kb/s down in my web browsers, steam, etc. The problem is not spyware or viruses, as I have two computers, one of which is a Macintosh.

      Could there be a problem with the router failing to route the packets locally?

      if the optimiser doesn't do the trick, then make sure you try a wired connection to rule out any wireless issues.
