    Internet has been fine for months, but has slowly deteriorated the past few days. Now it's just not working, or at least the download speed part of it isn't. The ping and upload speed are normal, but the download is very low. I have powered the modem and router on and off a few times, and have reset the router once but nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I usually get 20Mbps now it's below 1Mbps

    What download speed do you get with a computer connected directly to the modem?

    Check with your ISP first for any signal issues or outages. Next would be to go directly to your modem as Terry mentioned and see if you get the same results.
