If after you have checked all the usual stuffs you do to troubleshoot a wireless connection (channel, router location, driver update for the wifi adapter, etc., etc.) you still can’t get the full speed, I suggest you to turn off the Actiontec’s wireless radio and hook up a 3rd party AP instead.
I had the same issue with my FiOS wireless and solved the problem by doing the above suggestion. I am convinced that there is a problem with the Actiontec. You can read the test in my post here: http://forums.verizon.com/t5/FiOS-Internet/How-to-Get-the-Fastest-FiOS-Speed/td-p/462931/page/2
And if you research this on dslreports.com, you will see many users have the same complaint and they solve the problem by using an AP other than the Actiontec’s.

I just purchased the new action tech router and performance is horrible....
I am paying for 75 speed and only getting 25 up and 25 down. Does Verizon provide credit for underdelivery of service?
I have a brand new apple mac book pro and i am sitting five feet from the router.
When I plug into the router-- I get 75 mbps speeds.
This doesnt make sense?
Should I buy an apple router or just a new N router to solve the problem?
Any other tweeks you can suggest?

HI ,if you have the latest Gen 3 router then you might want to try this out ,its worth a shot but effective
log into th router>click on wireless settings >click on advanced security settings>click on 802.11.b/g/n>chnage it to performance mode N>apply
log into the router >click on wireless settings >click on advanced security settings>click on other advaced wirless settings>proceed>change cts mode>auto>cts type>rts_cts>apply
Your laptop will disconect post applying these changes ,if you are not on cat5 connection ,but you will regain connectivity in couple if minutes,if not you would have to do a hard reset to the router .
If your laptop is not b/g/n compatible then these settings might not help ,these settings go perefectly hand in hand with device supporting N wirless cards or b/g/n.
If some of your devices still run on g or b then please turn of these devices before you make the above mentioned changes .
Devices whihc are currently running on g or b wireless mode might not even connect ,so please check if all your devices are able to connect to your ssid post the above mentioned changes ,if not then you would have to do a hard reset to your router to give access to all your devices
Please try those above steps and do revert back with your valuable feedback.
