...and the lesson the OP has learn't from this is
before wading in at full throttle accusing everyone else of being at fault; try looking rather closer to home.

To be fair, you wouldn't expect firmware on a well-respected router to cause this, it may even be coincidental that the speed improved after updating the firmware (different gateway etc.).

I would agree as I am running stock firmware and its hitting max speed (quicker than 582n or 8960n) all the time. The disconnect/reconnect may have just been enough?
