      as everything else has been checked and with new router check with that first , also suggest run different speed checks at different times , compare readings could be poor ping rates and may need adjustment of delay rates sometimes data slowed by quicker delay ie 8ms may slow down and performs better with 16ms or 32ms

      Have you tried changing the wireless channel of your router. Start at 13 and work backwards to see if any give you a better result. Also you could try setting the wireless mode to g.

      If you are running XP, go to the DrTCP link below and take the Tweak Test. If it recommends changes, download and run the application to make them. There is advice on Vista there to, but to be honest Vista is pretty well optimised out of the box.

      Do all your tests with a wired connection, when you get that up to speed, then try to improve the wireless.
