6mbps speeds dropping and wireless router shutting off and on

This is getting truly annoying. I've recently upgraded to a 6mbps connection with a wireless router and it was working fine till I starting noticing my speeds dropping to ridiculous lows. I average about 4.9 - 5.5 speeds normally but it drops to 2.1, 1.3, and lower randomly sometimes and for hours at sometimes. I'm very, very, ocd about my speeds and it's been doing it a lot. Also, my wireless router continues to shut of and on for no reason. I switch to my wired modem which is about 6 years old or older and it works fine. I hate these erratic speed drops and faulty router.
