Slow download speed TalkTalk

Wins.XP,Athlon 2400 60ghd 2meg.memory. Gigabyte MB.
I have three computers networked via a Swart2-54125 router/modem.
I use TalkTalk as my I.S.P.and in theory have an 8MB/sec. download speed but I have run several online speed testers and am only receiving 1MB/s or less. According to B.T. my line is good enough for 3.5MB/s.
I know that speeds depend on a number of factors but before I check out my internal telephone wiring does anyone know if I need to alter any settings in the router?

This seems to be par for the course.

Nothing unusual for TalkTalk there.

As I have said before on this forum, talktalk carry out 'traffic management' aka throttling and this is the reason that I left them after involving my local Trading standards
