Ran http://www.speedtest.net/ as usual; 51.78 Mbps down, 10.87 Mbps up is a bit slower than usual.
Connected mini directly to Rogers modem; 126.88 down! (11.16 up is not much different)
Reboot router and modem
Retest usual cfg; 52.57 down, 10.71 up
Connect mini ethernet to modem; 130.77 / 11.04
Connect rest of devices (both NAS and Xbox) to modem; have to disconnect mini (not enough ports) and use wifi instead
Reset modem's internal IP address to 10.10.10.10 (which was the router's addr)
With usual LAN devices connected and mini on wifi, speedtest says 145.81 down, 10.81 up.
