    Okay here's a real head-scratch-er. About 2 days ago I started noticing some serious speed issues with web browsing while using my wireless router. Every once in a while I will notice little differences during what may be peak hours and whatnot, but this is far worse. I decided to do a speed and ping test and I got an F on my network that normally receives a low A or high B. I ran a gamut of spyware tests and I am clear there. Anyway, the real thing that is confusing me is I attempted to connect via a hardline (the cable I use to connect to my wireless router, so I at least know it's functional), but the network was unidentifiable and I could not get an internet connection, but when I reconnected my wireless router and let everything restart, I was able to connect wirelessly, using the same modem that would not connect me through an ethernet cable. I have a Belkin n600 wireless router and I would appreciate any help available. Thanks.

    Are you remembering to power cycle (unplug for 30 seconds) the modem when switching the device connected to it?

    What download/upload do you get with a connection directly to the modem with Speedtest.net? With an ethernet connection to the router? With a wireless connection to the router?

    Yeah I have power cycled, about 20 times now. Here is the result of the speed test with my wireless connection.

    I still cannot get an internet via ethernet cable to either my modem or router, so I can't really test them. However I am able to connect using my wireless network which is functioning based off the same modem and ethernet cable. It's honestly a mystery to me.
