If it connects at all you can expect speeds to be reduced by as much as 70%.
As to running a speed test, use the 12 MB manual speed test at testmy.net.
Post the results here or create an account on testmy and post a link to your save results.
In order to verify baseline system performance do the tests while connected directly to the modem.
There are a number of internal router settings that could affect the results.
