Broadband Speed Discrepancy

Could someone please give me some advice. When I check the status of my Dynamode Router Internet connection it shows download speed of around 7000kps. When I do a speed check on my PC, both wired and wireless, I barely get 1000kbps speed. Does this point to a problem with my router, or am I misreading the router information? My ISP is Tiscali, 8MB and I am about 2.7 KM from my exchange. I have tried the router in the main incoming telephone point which only gives slight improvement to the speed readings.

Just to let you know you are not alone with this Tiscali problem. Like you I am on 8MB, and live just over 1Km from the exchange, I have just checked my speed with Tiscali and I am getting 329.9 kbps, less than dial up. It may be a result of Tiscalis' massive ad campaign resulting in an influx of new subcribers, coupled with the school holidays. I will be requesting a MAC and moving elsewhere after the bank holidays.
