Internet is slow with ANY router

I just signed up for service with Time Warner cable in Dallas, TX. I am supposed to get 7Mbps down w/ bursting to 10Mbps. If I connect the cable modem directly to my PC, I get the advertised speed. If I go through my router I rarely get above 2Mbps. I know its not my router because I went and bought two new routers, both different brands and the same issue occurs. I've also tried both of my laptops so I know its not the computer either. At this point I'm almost positive its their service. No router = fast, w/ router = slow. Has anyone had this issue?

Cloning my PC's MAC address instead of using the router MAC address fixed my speed issue.

If you're using DD-WRT on a router, you should look into flashing back to the default firmware of the router. It must be a setting within the router QoS.
