For the last few days getting to websites of any kind has been quite a hassle. Pages either don't load, take 5-10 minutes to load, or come up with "404 not found, or 500 internal server error". I figured it was because I was running azureues to download torrents in the background, but I have since turned it off, and rebooted, and it is still extremely slow. Just getting here to make this post took almost 20 minutes. I am connected to a Linksys WRT54G wireless router via 75ft cat 5e ethernet cable. The router is upstairs and I am downstairs, our upstairs computer is also experiencing slowness.

try going here and downloading the latest firmware fro your router. make sure to verify the version of wrt54g, v-1 v-2 v-3 v-4 v-5. http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c...aypage=download

the issue may not be related to your router. still could be towers, adware spyware virus. it could be the Internet service provider you have . does the router ever lose internet connection. does unplugging and plugging the router's power help?

My dad called our cable company and found out it was the cable modem. So it's all sorted now.
