I recently replaced my generic Linksys wireless router with a Trendnet tew-633 gr router, and my internet speeds spiked. My ping is about the same, however, I went and ran an internet speed test at http://www.speedtest.net/ and found this:

That's WAY above what my connection is rated for. I'm paying for a 4Mb down and 386Kb up internet connection, so... is there any reason for the massive spike in speeds? could it be Comcast's "Powerboost" thing?

Note: this test was done at 10pm at night

Exactly, I have no clue if it's because of the new router or not. That's kinda what I was hoping to figure out...
