      Your stats don't look too bad, although two or three hours worth would have given a fuller picture. Although it probably doesn't have any bearing on your speed problem, you are suffering from the 15.5 dB bug (a known router bug whereby it mis-reports the attenuation as 15.5 dB). I believe that re-booting the router a few times, or possibly using the reset button) will usually cause it to start reporting the true value. As for your slow download speeds, you didn't say whether you are connecting via wireless or ethernet. (edit -posts crossed in the ether - I see you are using wireless. are you able to try ethernet?)

      he is wireless, this is moe than likely the cause of it. try a wired connection and use this Speed Test to see what transfer rate u get....

      as for the 15.5, i dont think it'd go much higher as his upload att. is nearly the same - might possibly be accurate!! lol!!

      Re: Mid Package Only Getting 646 Download

      If you haven't yet tried ethernet, I suggest you do so, even if it means you have to plug in your router via an extension cable. You will probably get increased noise, and therefore somewhat slower connection speed but if, as we suspect, it is a wireless issue, your download speed should increase. If it is confirmed to be a wireless issue, there are various posts in the forum on this subject. Suggest you start with this one:-

      Hi thanks for you help so far. I have hardlined the router through the extension but it still comes out with the same results.
      I ran the tcp optimiser and noticed something that may be odd, On the network adaptor selection i get the option of usb cable moden 351000 but i dont have this on my computer, ive looked in device manager under network adaptors and its not there.

      It also apears to have its own ip address.
