1. Does your router have a password on it?

2. Do you have the latest firmware on your router?

3. Where did you do the download/upload test?

Are you wirelessly connected, or directly plugged in?

Well, it could be the server you are pinging on speedtest.

Open command prompt and ping www.google.com

I'm getting about 100ms response time, let me know what you get.

Yah, the server speedtest pinged must have had some issues with it. Your response times are very good with Google. Now, this isn't 100% of a fix, so try downloading a file from a very large site like Microsoft.com

Where I work, I constantly have to download service pack 2 for vista, so just try downloading it, seeing what your speed is, then cancel it:
