I upgraded my cable package recently to 30 Mbps / 5Mbps. When I went to test my speeds, I was getting like 8 down. I plugged directly into my modem and I was getting 60Mbps. I wouldn't expect a router to throttle itself but it is an older router, I would guess at least 5 years old. I'm fairly certain that there's nothing configured in my router that would slow things down, and the wireless is off so no one is leeching.
Because I have multiple devices from my phone to my xbox that need connectivity, I need a new router I'm guessing. I plan on flashing mine to the latest firmware just in case there's life in it yet, but baring that, what would you all recommend? My biggest use of my network is gaming and file transfer for streaming to my xbox. Apart from that, I don't want my speed choked off obviously. Thanks!
