How to increase my internet speed


How to increase my internet speed

When I switched over to Uverse Internet, I was told that the max internet speed that I could receive was 1.5Mbps and they were working on upgrading the speed in our area. I'm using a Pace 5168NV Modem/Router with 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports and 802.11n wireless technology,

My problem is I average 187.8 KB/sec. download and 45 KB/sec. upload transfer speed on both the ethernet and wireless connections

I'm trying to increase my transfer rates. My question is: Would adding a second wireless router, such as a 900N dual band router as a "bridge" or "passthrough" increase the transfer speed  and if not what alternative would I have to increase the speed.

I would greatly appreciate the sharing of similar experiences of anyone with a similar problem.

You're only going to get that data rate 187KB (1496Kb, 1.5Mb) out of your ADSL2 line.

Okay! I guess I'm stuck until AT&T upgrade the U-Verse packages for our area.
