It seems you are looking at your hardware(and software to a lesser
extent) to troubleshoot your internet woes. I don't think that is the
answer. Have you tried relocating your router? While certainly your
speed variance is "normal" it might be improved. You could have a
situation where the lines you are using may be close to a source of
disruption, i.e. lots of electrical wires in the wall. It may seem
small, and usually is, but it is worth a shot.
