Slow internet, possibly router.

I recently got a new computer that has Windows 7 professional (I used to have XP) and my internet speed has decreased greatly. I have a Linksys WRT160n v2 router by Cisco on build 8 and the settings are exactly the same as they were before, I also have SBC/Yahoo DSL, but my internet has gotten a lot slower. I was wondering if this was a router problem because it doesn't work with Windows 7, or if it is something else.

I'm not sure. Maybe you can test with another computer to compare their speeds. I think its your os's problem.
God helps those who help themselves.
