    sfnd, Try another CAT 5 cable to see if the problem continues. Also swap it with another Ethernet port on the router to see if it continues.

    JamalofLG - good suggestions.  After upgrading my cable modem, I've seen much better speeds, but the hardwired speeds are still not quite up to expectations.  Swapping cables, as you suggested, helped quite a bit and I will need to rewire a few things to max out my performance.
