    I feel like when I reset my router I must have forgotten to change a setting or something. The last day or two is the only time it has been slow and I reset my router last week so on the other hand I doubt that's the problem.

    Any suggestions?

    Yep, it's locked. I never let it open.

    I think it might get a little better once I turned on QoS.

    Are you using the recommended WPA2 security? Also try turning up the brightness a tic and turning off auto brightness.

    All from here:
    iPad: Issues connecting to Wi-Fi networks

    I can confirm it fixed my problem.

    No this is just in general, on my home PC. Actually what seems to have resolved the issue is using OpenDNS. Perhaps my DNS servers for my ISP are crap.

    Same thing has happened to me recently. The OpenDNS did work wonders on my end too.

    It may just be a case of system overload. Hot weather and school out can mean a lot of kids home and on-line. I have had a lot of slow downs since school let out and still show my normal router speeds.

    Do some speed tests over time so that you can compare

    speedtest.net will keep track of your tests so you can look back and see if the speeds have gone down.

    I've got Comcast business class internet for $69 and these are my speeds from Miami,Florida to a server in Atlanta Georgia.
