Not getting consistant speed from router

We're using a Cisco Linksys Wireless-N Broadband Router, model WRT160N v3.

We have two desktops and are connected to COX and should be averaging between 13-15 mbps download speed.

If we unplug the router from the electrical outlet and then plug it back in, we get 15 mbps. However, after a day or two the download speed starts to drop off, and after a few days we're down to averaging 1 mbps consistantly. But if we unplug the router and then plug it back in again, we're back up to 15 mbps and the cycle continues....

We did a system check, and the wireless settings check out okay. Any ideas about what might be going on and how to correct the problem?

Is the router well ventilated or is it overheating ?
