Connection between WET11 & Router is SLOW!

    I am so mad right now. I can usually figure this stuff out, but it is turning into days, so I figure I'll ask the pros.

    I have a Linksys WET11 Ethernet Bridge and a BEFW11S4 Wireless Router. Everything has worked fine for 2-3 years since I have had them.

    I moved into a new house. The connection to the WET11 had dropped by a third.

    Before you say the walls are thicker, I have set up the router and the bridge right next to each other. I have defaulted all the settings except for the router password.

    I ran the broadband speedtest on AroundCinci. I get around 2.9-3.0MBPS directly plugged into the router which sounds right. When plugged into the WET11, I get 1.7MBPS. I got my friend to run the same tests on his wireless setup and he gets 2.4MBPS wireless which sounds about right to me, but I'm no expert. The bottleneck is the cable modem, correct?

    Any ideas? When I go to the status page of my WET11, I can see on the wireless site survey that there are others around here with wireless networks. Could that be the cause? I've changed the ssid, turned ssid broadcast off, changed the channel, changed the ip addresses, etc...

    Still no change in speed.

    Please tell me that it is an easy fix.

    Thanks.

    Well since none of you bothered to comment, I've figured out that the bridge is fine because it worked on someone else's network.
