      You are showing synch of nearly 15mb therefore I would expect the download test to be a lot higher than your results.

      Try the same test wired to the router if possible.

      Also have a read of these:

      Try it wired and you should see a vast improvement.
      If you cant then try different wireless channels.
      edit - as NR says above

      They look fine to me, do you wish to swap with mine? I can only get about 7mb, which is about half of yours

      Try some of the suggestions in this thread, to see if it improves. The stats look fine.

      You wont get anywhere near the sync speed with wireless unless you are very lucky. The disconnections could be caused by a neighbour setting their wireless channel near to yours ( amongst a million other things).
