    Not sure what is going on. I have a Linksys WRT-160N router. Before the OTA 2.2 update I would get speeds on WiFi between 15-18 mbps (speedtest.net). Now Im getting less then 3G speeds, like 1.3 and under.

    Ive tried to tweak settings in the router and no change. I even did a factory reset on the router and still same thing.

    Finally I went to my moms house and tried her WiFi and got what I used to get 15+mbps.

    Can someone PLEASE HELP!!

    You might try upgrading the router's firmware. Also, try a different server on speedtest.

    Router is up to date. Different server shows no change.

    Anyone else?

    internet will be faster/slower at different times of the day. firmware sounded like your best bet to me. how new is your router? if its over a year and you never upgraded firmware i am pretty sure that there is an upgrade available. if you haven't had it a year yet then perhaps call router 800 number and get them to walk through some troubleshooting?
