Default Download speed is SLOWWWWW

My connection is whack! I have cable (comcast, NJ USA) and my downloads are testing like between 50 percent and 80 percent worse than the average comcast costumer. WTF?! Downloading files at like 40kbps?! Im irate!

Have you upgraded firmware on your router? Are the cables a little frayed? Have you tried other browsers?
