Hi, don't know if I'm posting this in the right place, but

I was wondering why the heck I'm getting BELOW 1 mbps toward my internet connection? I look at my wireless signal, and it's full. yet, I go on speedtest and have about 0.20 mbps.

Info -
My parents pay nearly $100 for this bundle thing with the internet, phone, and something else, I think TV.
provider - windstream

router - F@ST 1704

Also, the router is currently on top of the main computer in the office, on top of the router is a house phone. Yet, if I move the house phone, nothing changes. The computer is on the floor.

Should i move it? Would this improve my connection? Even the main computer that's wired with the router gets the same mpbs as wireless.

Any help would be appreciated, if you need anymore info, just ask.

That router is not exactly top of the line. Why would they only support 802.11g these days.

That is not your problem though. If it tests that low you need to contact the ISP and have them come out and test the line. It is likely there is something wrong with the DSL connection coming into your house.
