    My TalkTalk router has been quite slow recently. You don't notice it while on the internet (browsing, video streaming, playing games), but you definitely notice it when playing online games on my Playstation 3, as the signal is very low.

    I performed a speed test online and my download speed is 6.83 mbps. Is this good or bad?

    That is quite slow! Mine is 13.81 MBPS and I am with TalkTalk as well. Do you live in a village by any chance? Try and upgrade to Fibre if you can, because you will probably need that to play games on your PS3, or change network provider. TalkTalk really is not that good... I am on it because it is cheap :/

    I noticed this problem happened after i moved the router from the hallway to the living room. I realised it got slower and moved ut back but it's still slow.

    Make sure the router is connected directly to the master socket.................and any excessive wire to the socket also affects the performance.

    Join the talktalk forum and ask them. As sometimes if the system picks up instabilities aka no connections, you get dropped to a profile with a lower speed in favour of stability. The guys on the forum will happily reset that.
