I need some assistance diagnosing a network issue I'm having with my home network over the past year. I am constantly having inconsistent bandwidth issues with my cable modem. Most of hte time my desktop holds a 20mbps upload speed 4mbps download, but it will also drop to 15 and 3 unexpecedly. My wireless connection issues are even more troubling and frustrating. Sometimes when I go to load a webpage I completely lose connection to the network. The best speeds I can get on my laptop is usually 12mpbs and 3mbps. The issue typically happens during the evening and I can see my speeds drop all the way down to 5mbps and 1 mbps.
I use Norton and have used Norton Power Eraser and found nothing. I've also ran Spybot, Walware Bytes, and ESET with no viruses. So I don't think it is a virus, spyware, or malware issue.
Here is my network:
Cablem modem -> Vonage Router (not wireless) -> D-Link Extreme wireless router
Motarola Surfboard SB5101 -> Motarola VT2442-VS -> DIR-655 (WEP passord runnin transmitting in 'n')
