I have the 45/6 plan, and I have a DD-WRT router setup behind my gateway using the tips here to allow IP passthrough. However, I cannot achieve the speeds I pay for; instead I'm getting 30M/5.25M. This same router behind the TW gateway works great; I can achieve 55M/5.5M on it, but when I switch to Uverse's gateway, the router isn't as fast. I have a network drive connected and use LAN speedtest to confirm my throughput to the router--it doesn't change regardless of what provider I'm using.
If I hardwire directly to the gateway, I can acheive the stated speeds but somehow using the router slows me down quite a bit. I don't believe the router is to blame because it works transparently with TW.

To help debug this, I installed another router setup as an AP to the network in parallel to my DD-WRT router. Through the 2nd router, I'm getting 40M/5.5M consistently. There is something going on with the DD-WRT router interacting with the gateway.
Still open to other ideas. I may have to dump the DD-WRT router for the 2nd one.

That is definitely a unique scenario. I have encountered something kind of similar in my home network, but it is with one individual computer. When I run speedtests, it gives differing values all the time, while the other devices in my house do not. I do not concern myself with it, because when downloading, it still will download at my provisioned speed, so I assume it is just something with the computer and testing with speedtest.net.
