Why is my router slowing down my internet so much?
Hi I am using a belkin F64230-4 v1 wireless router and I have been having problems with it for the past while now. I recently switched my ISP and was using this router it was taking ages to load web pages yet the speed tests said i had around 2.5 MB which would normally be reasonably fast, i tried plugging directly into my modem and the speed was reading the same at around 2.5 MB yet web pages loaded so much faster. After messing around with my routers settings i decided to restore it to factory setting and i was amazed at the difference, for around 3-4 days my speed was just as good as it was when i plugged directly into my modem and now it has gone back to its old ways, once again it is very slow yet the speed tests still claim it to be 2.5 megs. I have ordered a new router from ebay but im just wondering if any of you have any ideas as to why this is happening as the router is only around a year old (i have already tried upgrading the firmware but no difference made) Thanks.
