Slow wireless connection with a netgear router

Model number is a WNR834B v2, newest firmware is on it, still having a problem with the connection dropping to about 1.5mbps dl, on straight modem it's getting around 6.2mbps. Any ideas?

ISP is clear, FWIW

This router with Tomato or DD-WRT firmware will make your life much better. Make sure you get the one with the 'L' at the end.

Once you get it, Put DD-wrt. Don't believe, search for DDWRT or WRT54GL
