My Belkin router was fine until @ 2 weeks ago.Since then the speed of download has slowed considerably.I have tried a reset & there seems to be a little improvement.My speedy connection of the past was way quicker than what I receive now. Can anyone please suggest a way to ensure I get the best that's possible on my connection ? Thanks.

To be honest, I'd look anywhere but your router for the problem - unless you know for sure that's where the problem lies? Can you beg/borrow/steal another one to see if it makes any difference? I'd suspect your PC/the line to your home/the exchange/your ISP before I suspected the router. Some things to consider, beyond trying a different router, might include getting your ISP to do a test on your line, and checking whether your ISP is throttling you because you've exceed your monthly download limit.

As Ian suggests its worth getting your ISP to run a speed test.

Is your connection cable or ADSL?

Routers work or don't work, wont be the router.

First turn router off by pressing the button at the back leave off for about one minute then turn on and try it, You could also try downloading and running TCPOptimizer from the net. It works for me on all my PC's
