    Ok my roommates and I signed up for a 3mbps cable internet connection. Ok there is 3 of us and we are getting 1.3mbps on each machine. Is it our shitty router/switrch that is the problem? This normal?

    You SHARE 3 megabit. 1.3 on each machine is... 3.9 megabit. What are you complaining about?

    Unplug the other two and try again. Try several speed test sites. If its still slow, then NO it is not your router. Its their cable. Call and complain.

    Also, try plugging the machine directly into the connection (no router/switch/whatever in between). If you call to complain about slow speeds, this is the first thing the fuckers will make you do anyway.
