Router downstream 2272 Kbps only 800 Kbps PC?

I have a Netgear DG834G v3 Router connecting my PC to the internet.
In the Routers menu screen my downstream reading is 2272Kbps 2 Meg.
Checking a number of download speed tests and running tests my best download speed is about 800 Kbps 1 Meg.
Can anyone suggest where the loss in download speed is coming from?

I think you are looking at connection speed and confusing it with download. What speed are you signed up for???

My ISP has assured me that they have upgraded my line from 1 to 2 Meg.
The speed tests dont confirm this!

Your line may not be good enough for a 2meg speed
