      Unplug your router by the mains for 20 secs. The plug back in.

      See what your connecting at after you've done this here: 192.168.0.1

      2legit, there's a lot of factors that'll affect speeds...

      1. are you wireless?
      2. are you running off extentions?
      3. are all sockets in the property filtered?
      4. what's you current stats (snr, sync speed & attenuation)?

      you could try changing the wirelessd channel.

      better still, do a wired test and see what your missing out on
