The speed of that router is 100 mbps (wired) and 54 mbps (wireless). If you have a 1 mbps line, that router is more than sufficient. Your speed will change simply because someone is using the internet connection. Downloading, uploading, surfing, chatting, listening to internet radio, etc. Make sure no one is on, then test it to see what speed you get. Go to www.speakeasy.net/speedtest and select the server nearest to you. It is a very good speed tester.
Good Luck!

How does multiple people using the same router effect the speed of the internet


They are all "leeching" bandwidth which has a certain value and when either alot of customesr all go online or lots of people access the router in the same house the net result is lowered band width simply slowing of the internet connection.

Wireless speed


The answer to this is yes and no.

Wireless speeds are not up to gigabit on any router that I know of. You may be able to have a wired Gigabit connection on a wireless router, but not wireless. But this would not speed up your Internet browsing (wireless or not).

A new router would probably improve your Internet browsing speed, but perhaps not for the reason you may think.

1, Your line speed has probably increased since you purchased your current router and a new router would probably deal with it better.
2, You may be able to put a new wireless card in your PC that would allow you to use G or some of the other faster wireless connection methods.

Ultimately your Internet browsing speed is governed by the line speed, the contention in your area, the general speed of the Internet. Changing your router will just help make your internal network traffic more efficient.

Here is a Good Guide from Microsoft that I would follow BEFORE spending any money.

http://tech.msn.com/howto/articlepcw.aspx?cp-documentid=6555722

Basically what it says is 1, ensure you have a clean connection to the Internet, 2, update all your firmware so that every thing is as good as it can be.

Read the article, do what it says and then consider if you need to upgrade the router. At the end of the day your Internet speed will never be better than the speed that you have paid for. If you pay for 2Mb and http://www.speedtest.net says you are getting 1.9Mb then you are doing well and the best you can improve things is by .1Mb. Maybe you need to get a faster connection.

If you pay for 2Mb and you are only getting 1Mb (and you have done all the recomendations) Maybe you need a new router.

Hope this helps

Have look in the router settings for the actual internet connection speeds, as these are a more true reading than the speed check as the speeds can vary at different times of the day and 2 or 3 speed checks can bring different results. your actual connection speed that is showing in the routers settings is the connection you are getting from your ISP. If you are with BT they usually recommend using their latest routers, why i'm not sure, as the only thing i have noted is that the MTU is set at 1500 (Maximum Transmition Units)and in other routers the MTU is automatically set at 1493, so look for the MTU setting and up it if necassary, but not above 1500, also double check all the settings, even put the bt router back in and see if speeds improve, if, you know the BT router is set up purposly for faster connection speeds. Also try checking your speed at a speed test site at a quieter time of day, you will also see different speed check sites give you different speed results.
