    I recently went to a higher speed ADSL which claimed to be 16Mpbs.. It is with Acanac and when i first tested with speed net it came in over 14Mbps. I was using a netgear wireless g router (old) with the 4200 speedstream modem and got these results which I found acceptable. Now using netgear n router modem combo DGN-2000 and my readings are just over 12 Mbps. I tried reverting and still got the lower speeds. I tried isolating one computer hard wired still got the lower 12Mbps.It hasnt really affected my download speeds as far as I can tell but I did find it a little puzzling.

    On DSL/ASDL connections, speeds are generally up to x mbps, not guarranteed.

    In your case, a 2Mbps drop is really nothing and in the industry, acceptable.

    Many factors can cause the drop. Now if you was at 16Mbps and dropped to 1.6Mbps then that's a problem.
