freitasm: 

There are so many things that can impact speedtests that it's not funny.



It's very handy to have one from your provider as well as external for sure.
I always presumed my 15Mbps connection was running at it's best but it's only now I see that the router is holding me back. I wasn't able to tell this from speedtest.net alone.

New router ordered quicksmart.

itxtme: 
Absolutely, the WRP400 max throughput in googling indicated 47Mbps was standard (exactly the result I got).  Waiting for a new one coming via the states to max the connection.  Hence why I was perplexed by Dons comments re "buying something new".  The hardware is certainly the issue for me.


Got my new Netgear R6300 from the US today, the results speak for themselves!!

I got me a tplink tl-wdr4300 and put gargoyle on it and it makes a huge difference. I was downloading off steam last night during peak time averaging 6.6MB/s down. TF2 12gig in under 30mins.



I does not get much better than that.

Yes - got the same results - depends entirely on the server location chosen.

Airport Extreme has absolutely no impact on data throughput - identical results across lan or directly connected to cable modem.
