Default DG834 v2 - low internet speed?

I have had this router for a couple of years now and has worked fine until a couple of months ago.

WHen I login to the routers control panel, the router status tells me that it sees between 3.9 MBs and 4.5 MBs Download and between 0.8MBs and 1 MBs upload connections, but the actual speed that it passes on to the computers (2 desktop PC's and 2 laptops - all wired to the router) is usually around 0.5 MBs download speed which is ridiculously slow. And at times the connection will cut out all together.

I have spoken with our providers and the signal in the area is fine and they have in fact boosted it a couple of times and changed our 'profile' - whatever that means - but still no change.

I upgraded the firmware on the router to V3.01.38 about 2 weeks ago and it didnt seem to help.

Do I need a new router? Or is there anything else I can do.

Any help would be much appreciated.
