Because the speed also depends on how fast the site you download from is. For the www.speedtest.net and similar it's always almost at the maximum possible for your line because they are using very small packets of data and they send them as fast as they can.
When you download something the packets are much larger and your line can't get them faster. There are some download managers that are capable to trick your line into thinking there are multiple downloads at the same time when in reality there's only one - so you will get a faster download speed - but very few sites support them. In the end, even with one of them, if your line is slow you wouldn't get too much speed increase. 
Just try it and see.

This can happen if you are downloading from a website which has slow upload speed or high traffic.
Using a software like Orbit can also help.
Remember, you can only download from a website how much it can upload.
For example try downloading MSN messenger from www.msn.com. They have very fast servers.
Also note that there is a difference between KBps and Kbps.
1KBps = 8Kbps

Why does my internet slow down when I hook up my router. When I first purchased it it did'nt really make a differance. Do I need to reset it or something?


You could try re-setting. Remove the power plug and let it sit for around 30 secs. Re-insert the plug and wait till all lights on the router are on and steady. If this makes no difference, goto "network connections" right click on the connection you are using and select "repair". This will re-set the ip of the connection. If this fails you may need to 'dial into' your router to make adjustments to its settings.

Download speed slows when router is on line.


If the router is offline then your not downloading anything, most down loads start fast then fall to a level your pc can handle, aka your connection speed.
