I have a Netgear Home Router and for the past month has worked properly but today has been very inconsistant.  I have 30 Mb bandwith and speedtests were showing 25 to 33 Mb but as of this afternoon is showing less than 1.5 Mb.  I have pdated the firmware, rebooted multiple times and reset to factory specs.  When I connect directly to the modem I read 28 to 33 Mb bandwith which then drops back to 1.5 Mb when I run it through the router.  It was first noticed on youtube when they started being choppy.  The same was noted on my WD mycloud files.

Sometimes after I reboot the router it may get up to 9 Mb but within 5  minutes it is back down again to 1.5 Mb or less.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Any suggestions on what to replace the router with.

Sounds like there is an issue with your router.  How much are you looking to spend for a replacement?  What capabilities do you need?

It can be an over load on the node. The line that brighs signal to you street can be very busy. U have to tell u internet providef to check that for you.
almost all the time from 9am to 6 pm internet signal drops . If you internet provider dont have the right technology.
