    Just a query about the speed of broadband I'm getting.

    I'm in the UK and have an up to 8Mb connection with Pipex. I use a Netgear DG834 wireless router to connect.

    The router identifies the downstream connection as 8128kbps and the upstream connection as 448kbps, which is what I think they both should be.

    When I do a speed test online I get an average of about 348kbps for uploads - not too bad - but only about 956kbps for downloads.

    Am I misinterpreting the figures, or am I losing a lot of speed between the router and PC? If so, is there any reason for this/way I can improve it?

    Thanks in advance :)
