    hey guys, i just replaced my netgear router with a really old belkin one F5D6231-4 to be exact but the problem is, is that my upload and download speeds are really slow

    my internet connection is around 15/5 and with this router im getting 6/2.. i literally know nothing about routers so im not sure whats going on

    can i get any help? or am i stuck with this because of how old the router is??

    edit* oh yeah, i forgot, my computer is wired, not wireless

    What speed do you get if you plug a machine straight into the router?

    with the model directly connected i get about 1.6MB/s

    there have never been any firmware upgrades for the router, the only version on belkins website is the original firmware

    im not really sure, but in my quick searches, it seems most reviews on the router are from 03'
