I have been having trouble with my ISP (Virgin ADSL) for some time, slow connection, no connection etc. They always say that it is my hardware that is at fault. So I recently obtained a Netgear DG834GT router to replace my Linksys WAG54G Gateway.
I was well pleased when I got it working and the router statistics showed that I was getting 7456 kbps downstream. But when I did the speedtest to compare, it was 828 kbps. Am I missing something?
I have the router stats window open as I write and it is updating every 10 secs still showing 7456 kbps down, 576 kbps up. But the speed test says different.
Can you explain?
