If you haven't already, try the following in order:
1) disconnect the power source of your router
2) disconnect the power source of your cable modem
3) wait 1 minute
4) connect the power source of your cable modem
5) wait for the appropriate lights on the modem to illuminate (usually ~1 minute)
6) connect the power source of your router and wait ~1 minute for the appropriate lights on the router to illuminate

Not sure if you're using DHCP or static IP's, but if nothing changes after the above steps, consider rebooting your computer, just to complete the reset sweep.

Thanks. - Tried that this morning when it dropped out completely and it came back, but it is still slow.
