I would recommend running the "netstat" command in command prompt to see all of the active connections. If anything looks weird, you might have a malware infection eating up bandwidth.

Also make sure your routers MTU speed is set to 1492. Sometimes on ADSL (or normal DSL) does not work well on the default of 1500.

As far as speed test goes it varies and depends on hops, distance, network load & peak times etc. Not sure what your speed package is or anything, but your router information without errors inculding attenuation etc does seem spot on at 3.5km out and getting almost 1Mb/up and 3.6Mb/down. Is this a dry line (aka naked line) without voice? Some things I would check is do some pings and check latency and also call and ask if they got you on fast path. Running some test from cmd IE: ping -t yahoo.com and ctrl+c to stop it. Look for large ping times or packet loss. Run a cmd IE: tracert yahoo.com again look for abnormal ping times and packet loss.
If the speed gets choppy during rain etc is also a indicator of ground faults on the line water shorting out stuff and bad ground bonding. Sometimes vandals go out and try to steal wires etc out of them distribution boxes on the pole and out in the yards and take the covers off that causes all kinds of havoc on the line. Bad filters etc could cause problems usually when the phone rings and knocks the dsl out. I also would connect wired to the router and then check speeds. Also, try reseting or power cycling the modem /router.
