Urgent help with Linksys wired router

I have a Linksys BFSR41 v2 that connects out cable modem (service is Comcast) to our multiple computers. For years it has worked fine. Now it is causing the network to become very slow. Using online speed tests I can get close to 10mbps with the computer directly connected to the modem, but with the router in place everything becomes exremely slow, as low as 14kbps. Comcast said to contact Linksys, who told us to upgrade the firmware for the router and then change the MTU setting to 1300 and see if it helped. It didn't. I temporarily took a router I have for another location and plugged it in (it's a netgear), and it works fine. But I really want to use the old router so I can put the new one in my other location. Any ideas what to do? I have tried the basics like reatoring factory default settings. Could the router just be broken? Thanks so much in advance.
Sounds like a problem with the router itself since you said you tried another one and it was fine.
Are you getting the slow connection to just one of the pc's on the network or all of the pc's on the network??
It does sound like the router is at fault but it wont hurt to go in the linksys router config page and take a look in there to see if anything is set wrong.

Have you tried the linksys couter where you got the netgear router from? Swapping might work if the service is different.
