I have an Asus rt-n66u VPN router. Modem speed is 31 mbps router DL speed is 3.53 mbps. Any suggestions?

Sounds right. Keep in mind that you pay for Bits per second and windows measures the speed in Bytes per second. So 31,000,000bps / 8 = 3,875,000Bps

Dividing 3875000 by 1024 to get KiloBytes = 3784.2KB
3784.2/1024 to get MegaBytes = 3.7MB

So 3.53 is certainly in the ballpark for the speed you pay for.

Thanks for the response. I may have been unclear in my original post. I do pay for fiber high speed and when I use only the supplied Bell Home 2000 hub modem download speed is 31.5 MBPS which is more than the 25 mbps guaranteed. I use an Asus router for my home networking with VPV service and when I connect it behind the hub modem my download speed drops to 3.5 mbps. (approximately 1/10 of what I should get).
