    Removing the router will tell you if the trouble goes away.

    I had a router that I upgraded the firmware and it locked up. I then found older router I used for years. But only up to 6 MB speeds I had. I know have a faster 16 MB speed and all seems OK but when I want to download that old router gave me 1/3 my download speed.

    So good router but not able to deak with faster speeds.
    Again you have to remove your router to find out how things are working.

    If it's the same without the router then it's something else.
