    Could be your service provider...They do vary when traffic does...There are some times during the day that the internet gets big-time busy..

    That is very bad and most likely your ISP. What does your contract state with them as far as speeds go?

    DSL service... could be distance too.

    Do speed tests at www.speedtest.net and see if you get the same results.

    Are those results for the computer connected by wireless or ethernet or both ways?

    If separate modem and router do you get the same results with the computer connected directly to the modem?
