How do I get my internet to work? Please help, internet is TERRIBLE.

Upload Speed: 1.19 Mbps
Download Speed: 1.36 Mbps

We've had people come in and look at it, however they've all done the same thing. They just tell us to replace our router, however this doesn't work.

Router details:
•Century Link
•Model Number: C1000A
•SSID: CenturyLink1539
•Security Type: WPA2-AES

Any advice would be extremely helpful!
Thanks in advance!

As you mention Century Link, I assume this is DSL- which is limited by how close you are to the central office switch
Your best bet is to go to cable based broadband

Again assuming DSL, another thing to try is swapping wire pairs at the demark to see if its just a bad line in the house. Make sure all the phones have filters on them too
If by chance CL is now a cable provider, none of this will help you, but if its a standard CL DSL connection it might help :-)

the best thing you can do is call your internet carrier they are the only once that can help you there should be a 24hr number you can call

I've tried this 4-5 times in a row. They've had me buy new routers every time.
