Here is my situation.

I have century link.

This is what I get with a direct line to my PC:

30ms/38 down/4.7 up

I have the stock Actiontec Q1000 router/modem

My phone is the Nexus 4 (4.2.2) With my phone right nest to the router I get:

79ms/33 down/6 up

With the phone in the bedroom I get:

197ms/1.6 down/1.1 up

The bedroom is literally just across the hallway and my house is not big at all. Kinda small actually. My wifes laptop in that same room will get around 25Mbps+ down.

I barely have bars anywhere in the house or yard with the phone.

Will a new router fix these issues for me at all, I mean is the limiting factor the phone, or are these actiontecs just really suck that bad. The router is second hand off ebay, so I dont know its history, but it looks like a human or small dog spent some time chewing on one of the antenna. It is very superficial damage, but I guess its worth mentioning.

My wife and I both just got the Nexus 4 and have a very small data plan because we planned on using the wifi almost all the time. So with the terrible reception, this is kind of defeating the purpose.

Wut do?
