    I am only averaging 1-2 mbs on any download. I have a Spectrum 1gig connection. Have I set up something wrong?

    likely not. There are many factors that affect download speed, most of which are beyond your or our control. 1-2MB/s (I'm assuming you mean MB/s because thats what download speed is measured in, mb/s is something different) is a pretty good download speed.
