Thats your answer right there. They are sucking the juice. Not doubt they are running torrents and agressivly using the juice. Use wireshark to watch what kind of connections and packets they are sending. I bet they are all making out they just do light browsing but in reality its a free for all.
Trust me, they're not, they're too retarded to do that. They both work at a music/merch distro and get tons of free CDs and they don't even know how to rip them without me doing it.

It's the router. I had the same router and my internet kept randomly slowing to a crawl but was fine when I plugged directly into the modem. I bought a D-Link DGL-4300 and my internet's been perfect ever since. (that was probably ~2 years ago)

I 2nd ace's comment. just because one is using mac and the other a linux distro ... The linux guy would be the first suspect.
If your firmware has the option, look at the number of connections each pc is using on the router. Some things as simple as infected/malicious facebook's can cause havoc if left to do what they do.

Not even worth looking into his. He's home maybe one day a week and rarely on his computer and he takes it with him when he's not here. In fact he's been home all day and he's not even on the client table.

edit: Nevermind, it's still got the same issue after upgrading the firmware.

bump, still going on.
last 2 days my room mates were either gone or had their computer unplugged and out of the room and off and the internet has been consistently around 20 mpbs.

Room mate on Ubuntu came home a couple hours ago to do a paper for school and as soon as he opened his browser it became slow as hell for both of us, back to around the speed in the OP. He just went to bed, shut his laptop off and my connection is back up to 20 mpbs.

Try getting a new, more powerful router. I used to live in a house with 6 other people and a similar thing happened to me - we were over stressing the little old router. I bought a ASUS RT-N16 and it fixed all our problems - even with 3-4 of them constantly torrenting or using netflix, my ping remained acceptable & I still was able to download at an acceptable rate.

Maybe you didn't swap for a powerful enough router, when you did. This router is more powerful than my first 2-3 computers combined lol

Unless it's dying (which is what I'm leaning towards) it shouldn't be slowed down so dramatically by 1-2 other people having a browser open.
