Well hes not really that tech savy. I was kind of just wondering if there was something he could do that would fix it on his end?

Aside from rebooting his router or cable modem, there likely is nothing that he can do manually to fix the issue that he is having with speeds that slow. He needs to call the ISP and start working with them.

Yeah hes going to do that today. What I found odd was that his modem is also a wireless router I didnt know motorola supplied those but he swears up and down thats what he has. The fact that its an all in one should kill the speeds like that should it?
