I have a really old router, bought in the mid 90's, My internet works perfectly with it, but my speed is noticably slow. According to speedtest.net, around 6,000 BPS download.
When I use my new router, just bought a few months ago, my speed is around 25,000 BPS. But it shuts off randomly.
I have no idea what the problem could be. Either it's the router, or the computer itself. But, the router never had this problem when it was being used by my father(FIOS gave him a new one). I just brought it upstairs and plugged it in, made no changes. My dad asked FIOS about this problem, but they said they never had anyone complain about this sort of problem. So I've been stuck with the slow speed, while the three computers downstairs all have great connections.
I need a router so I can go on my Xbox, and on the computer at the same time.
