Hi all,

So our internet and phone line went out over a week ago and a nice repairman showed up to fix a wire on the side of the house. Since then, the wireless connection's been great-except for streaming videos (youtube, hulu, etc). Videos which once took five or ten minutes to load take forty minutes or an hour or more. I tried system restore, but that always seems to crash and not work (plus I can't find the earlier checkpoints I need) so I'm at a loss as to what to do.

Any ideas? I have Windows Vista and normally use Firefox, though the problem appears in IE as well.
