      Re: Slow D/Load Speed,Capped?

      you do not look capped to me, your connection also looks like it has been up for over 200 hours,
      wireless interference would be my guess to your problem
      any new electrical items in the house ? these could be the problem
      if not, you may want to change the channel in your router (you may have people in your area who are now wireless and could be clashing)

      tbh honest you're better off junking wireless and go wired or use powerline adapters...
