There is no reason you should not be seeing 150+ using the T2200H. I see in excess of my advertised rates on my Telus gateway.
You should be able to attach your own router to the T2200H even without bridging - it simply will create a subnet on your network if connected from a LAN port on the T2200H to the WAN port on the Netgear.
What is the IP addressing of your Netgear device?
You need to connect to your router with an Ethernet connection to determine accurate speeds. There are too many variables on Wi-Fi to use that connection as your testbed.
If, after rebooting your router by unplugging it and re-connecting it to power, you are still seeing the same speeds, I suggest contacting Telus as the next step.

I just hooked up my linksys wireless router to the new Telus wireless router I had installed.
My linksys was installed in my home office, and is hardwired to my printer and desktop computer so I wanted to keep wired connections to these devices, not to mention I want easier control of my home wireless network.
The telus modem is located in a different room, so I had to determine which wire was running to my home office. Here is what I had to do to keep using all of the existing settings on my linksys. There was one bigger problem that my router was using subnet 255.255.255.0, and so was the telus router. Both routers were trying to run on 192.168.1.x. From what I understand you cannot have two routers running on the same subnet, and also running dhcp. Since I wanted to basically keep all telus tv traffic on the telus router, and my own network on my own router, I put my router onto a different subnet where I can use all of my existing settings, no problem.
1. From port 1 on the telus modem, run this into your own wireless routers internet/lan port.
2. Access your telus router menu via a web browser. The ip address, username, and password is on a sticker on the side of router. 192.168.1.154. I used a network cable with my laptop and plugged into any available port.
3. Find the menu that allows port bridging. Enable this. Save changes.
4. Connect to your own router. If you don't know the ipaddress (mine changed one it was bridged to something other than 192.168.1.1), open cmd window in windows, and type in ipconfig /all. Find the ipaddress listed for gateway. This is your own routers ip address. Type this into your web browser.
5. In your router network settings, change the subnet to 255.255.0.0.
I had to change my routers ip address manually. Somehow, when it was hooked up to the telus router, it must have detected another router on the network and changed its own ip address from 192.168.1.1 to something very different like 10.154.x.x. I changed my linksys router address back to 192.168.1.1. If you have any existing devices with manually entered IP address, such as a access point, printer, desktop computer etc, you will have to go in and change their subnet address to 255.255.0.0, which is what your own router is now running on.
I now have my own network running on 192.168.1.x, and the telus router is also running on 192.168.1.x (its default), but they are different subnets. The only catch is, a device on your own router will not see any device connected to the telus router - different subnets now. The telus optik tv traffic runs through the telus router, and my own network is on my own router just like it was before having the telus router installed. I am going to turn the wireless radio off on the telus router as my tv's are all hardwired to it. One less radio signal to interfere. I am in a condo and there are a lot of wireless networks here.
Thanks for sharing!
Many of would have changed the IP address on the second router to something like 192.168.2.x with similar effect. Also the usual split is Telus TV services on the Actiontec, and all other services on the secondary router.
Usually, you need to connect to a LAN port on the secondary router with an Ethernet cable to set it up. Once connected, you need to put the IP address of the router in your browser address bar and set it up. If the secondary router has an IP address of 192.168.1.x, you will need to do some set up with it not connected to the Telus gateway, as you will need to change the default DHCP served IP addresses from 192.168.1.x to another IP address such as 192.168.2.x or change the Netmask ,as @grandmaster suggests. Once you have your local network set up, including Wi-Fi, you can then connect it to the Actiontec gateway for internet connectivity.
A web search with the term "setting up a subnet" or "using two routers" should gather more info on setting up a multi-segmented network than you need.
You need to changes these settings on your own wireless router.
Under what is probably something like internet settings, you want
-dynamic IP from ISP
-gateway will automatically get set one you set your "dynamic IP from ISP" on
Then under a section for local network settings
-ip address = 192.168.1.1
-subnet = 255.255.0.0
