I currently have 21mbps download speed. I used speedtest to verify what I am getting with my wireless N valet. I'm only getting 6 mbps. If I reset the router I then get 18mbps again. My wireless network mode is set to mixed.
I have to reset it a few times a day and right after I do it the speed picks up again.
This started a few weeks ago and was rock solid up until that point.

Try the following combination of settings:-
A] With the help of Cisco Connect Software (if at all you have installed the router with the help of this software)
1] Open the software and go to the option which says "Router Settings"
2] Then click on the option which says "Advanced Settings" which will take you to the router's configuration page.
3] Lower the MTU (Maximum Transmission Unit) from 1500 to 1400 or less (usually found on your router's main/ basic setup page)
B] If you haven't installed Cisco Connect then you can log on to the router's user interface using its default IP address in the browser which is 192.168.1.1 and type in 'admin' as the password leaving the user name field blank? This will take you to the router's web interface and then follow steps as mentioned above to make the changes.
Then check the connectivity status…
