      It is possible you have a batch of dodgy filters. Do you have a friend you could borrow one from?

      Are you using wireless to do the speedtests. Wireless can give really dismal results at times. If you are, try it with a wired connection. Even with your lower than normal sync speed you should get at least 7.7Mbps or nearly 1MBps.

      If you are using XP try running TCPOptimiser, link below.

      I've tried the filters from the first router and now the filters from the newer router.

      Tried wireless and wired. Results nearly always poor, but vary. Tonight has been quite good for a change. But it's the fact that it's inconsistant nearly all the time
